Since the past few days, I have been working on a personal project of mine and that sort of explains the lack of frequent posting here. I am happy to say that it is now available for a quick peek: The Better India (http://www.thebetterindia.com)
I am re-producing the write-up I have written on The Better India, explaining its existence:
On a day to day basis we have been reading the Indian newspapers and magazines. Almost all of them devote their prime space to negative stories. Stories of murder, arson, scandals and gossip. However, we found that hidden inside, in the deep annals of these publications are the happier stories. Stories, to use a cliched phrase, that kindle your heart and tell you that all is not lost.
The Better India is an attempt to bring out those happy stories, those unsung heroes and heroines, those small good deeds, and showcase them to the world. Over here, you will be able to read about the incremental progress being done by the industrious people of this country, the developments happening on the social and economic front. We hope that by showcasing these here, we might be able to inspire at least one amongst you, the readers, to do something that leaves an impact. Small or big. But, an impact.
Some of the features on The Better India include a way to submit articles related to the theme that you, dear reader, might come across and want to see featured on The Better India. Feel free to explore the content there and I would request you to provide your feedback by leaving your comments here on this blog. (I haven’t yet enabled commenting on The Better India, since it is under development).
Ladies and gentlemen, The Better India
And yes, feedback solicited. Please.
