This blog has been up for 3 years. Anniversaries such as these are mostly meaningless (and harmless) but they certainly provide a pause for thought. I don't have much to add to my last year's anniversary post except:
This year has clearly been "the" year for the Indian blogworld. Thousands responded in one way or another to the rallying cry in response to a fraudulent management institute who could not stand up to some honest probing or face public scrutiny. Blogs have not changed the world yet, but they are now a part of media consciousness or scientific study. It is true that newsfeed aggregators and portals like Google News have been instrumental in allowing people to sample hundreds of opinions at the same time, of the same subject and have greatly reduced information inequality and have allowed people to overcome the bias of a particular viewpoint; nevertheless blogs show that there is information out there that is unreported and still interesting. Personally, blogs salvage the best of the e-junk.

As for me, I get by with a little help from my friends.

Of course, I'm a big fan of your style of writing; I wish you'd reveal more of your poetic side, though :)
Afraid of being called a sissy, macho man?
