Hello Mohit
Thanks for writing back instantly... went through your site and have obviously been reading your comments on ibnlive.... Now, am requesting you or rather asking you: Would you be interested in writing/contributing/sharing with Indian Shitizens? You can happily post what you write on your site...and IF you share it with us, will paste it here and link to your site. However, WE on Shitizens are looking for CONTRIBUTIONS and not cutnpaste. Will you write posts meant for this blog? If not, no hard feelings...but this attempt fails if we dont have people writing in.....Let me know, what say?
