BCCL vs The Indian Blogosphere

The Slimes of India caricatured bloggers on page one the other day. It was only because of surfing blogs that I got to read the story, because I don't subscribe to the Slimes. The story's by Charles Assisi, whose work in Businessworld I always admired.

Codey has a rebuttal here. May be the story has a point, though as a generalisation you know it's trash. However, the tone of the story sounds pejorative, which makes me wonder, what does the Times have against blogging and bloggers? It's simple: the Indian blogosphere is a big critic of the Slimes. And why does the story repeatedly talk about Jivah, who doesn't even blog anymore? Because Jivah was responsible for this.

It's war now: the Indian blogosphere vs. BCCL.
