Mall Road

Bus Addey, Maal Rode, Camp, Madal Toun, Ajadpur, Shalimaar...

Oh yes, the Blog Mela, right here!

This post is sticky - originally posted on 15 August 2005

I had completely forgotten about the existence of the blog mela, let alone that I am supposed to host the next one. By contrast I do check Desipundit everyday. So I wasn't wrong when I described Desipundit as 24x7 blog mela. Great job Patrix!

But hey, blog melas are blog melas. Unlike Desipundit, they travel from blog to blog every week. They are often written in new creative styles by their hosts. And they have the potential of sounding like a weekly review.

So here we are. Mall Road will host this week's blog mela. The last date for nominations is the midnight of Friday 19 August, Indian Standard Time (which, as we know, always runs late.)

I take this mela business very seriously and I hope it's the same with you. But since I am involved with a hundred and one things for the next two weeks, I will have very little time to find good posts, the way I did for the last mela Mall Road hosted. So all of you are requested to nominate in bulk!

Please nominate only those posts dated between 13 and 19 August. And please avoid, so far as possible, nominating posts that have already appeared on Desipundit.

You can nominate posts by commenting here, but I prefer if you email your nominations to mallroad@shivamvij.com.

If all goes well, I may be on a WordPress site by then.

The previous mela was hosted by Shanti as Abhishek was absconding.
