Indhuja Pillai is a young blogger currently working in Bangalore, but you might know her as the person who set up marry.indhuja.com, a site where she looked for potential suitors for herself (in a tongue in cheek manner, of course), after her parents created a profile for her on a matrimonial site. Her one page site too off like nobody’s business, and soon went viral, with the youngsters-hounded-by-their-parents-to-get-married crowd identifying with Indhuja and her problem. Indhuja has now been featured by leading newspapers and news channels for her ‘hatke’ response to marriage proposals. BlogAdda caught up with Indhuja for an interview about the comet that lit up her her blogging career – marry.indhuja.com and other things.

Atulya Mahajan started blogging as ‘AmreekanDesi‘ in 2007 while in New York and continued capturing the nation’s imagination even after the ‘Amreekan‘ bit faded away on his return to India. He is the writer of satirical blog posts, open letters that go viral, and two books – Amreekandesi: Masters of America and the recently launched ‘Democrazy‘.
In an ideal world, he would be an advisor to Indian (and Pakistani) politicians who stops them from making ghastly but entertaining mistakes. BlogAdda spoke to Atulya about his success as a blogger, author, and his thoughts about the bundle of addictive contradictions that is India.
