Random stuff: Kolkata blogs

(This was a blogs-for-beginners story, written in a hurry for The Kolkata Telegraph; published on Saturday, July 9, 2005).

“More than the newspapers, more than the many films shot every year in Calcutta, it’s the blogs that bring me the real news, of a city that is shifting shape in strange and interesting ways, home to expatriates from Cambridge and diehard Mohun Bagan fans, activists and passionate poets, sad old Bongs with a flair for the language and brash new Tolkien-obsessed gamesters. The adda never died; it just moved online.”
