live from mumbai

Greetings from the city that never sleeps! To compensate for the non correspondence from Jamshedpur, the most well planned town in India, I shall now write about my stay in Jamshedpur, a.k.a. Tatanagar. The town is named after the great Jamshedji Tata, founder of the Tata Empire, one of the largest corporate empires in India. It was founded many, many years ago by the Tatas to support their iron and steel mining operations, and is a true marvel in town planning. I find it incredible that a single corporation takes care of everything in the city - the roads, electricity, and all other facilities are handled by Tata.

Somebody shoot the wedding planner! The colourful Sandhya wrote in to tell me about the Delhi Bloggers Meet, on Jan 13th. I've heard there's also a Mumbai Meetup planned in the first week of Jan. Thanks to my travel schedule, I'm going to have to miss both. The only blog meetups I can attend around these dates are those that take place in Kolkata, Ranchi or Jamshedpur. However I have doubts if blogging has contaminated Jharkhand yet.
