Sid Balachandran, aka Rishi ke Papa, is the man who writes those. We mean the person who blogs at I Wrote Those. You may even know him as the recipient of the ‘Best Personal Blog in India’ at the #WIN15 Blogging Awards. Sid is a Work From Home dad, which means he tries to get work done while spending time with his son Rishi. We asked him a few questions and Sid very graciously answered them, with none of the starry tantrums associated with an award winner.

Thinking Particle is a travel blog, but to call it just a travel blog would be doing it injustice. The About Us page of the blog run by Vishnu Kumar and Vijay Dubey says “Thinkingparticle.com is our effort to make traveling India a bit easier. We are trying to give most accurate information possible about various destinations through our travel articles. We also provide an opportunity to our fellow travelers to share their travel experiences by writing travelogues , by participating in our India travel forums and by sharing photographs.” This ‘social angle’ is what makes Thinking Particle different from other travel blogs. We spoke to Vishnu about their journeys, both as bloggers and as travelers.
If you need an introduction to Kanan Gill, we request you to come out from your hiding place under the rock or check your internet connection. Or maybe we’re being too lazy to introduce one of the cutest…we mean most talented guys in India’s ‘humour industry’. Kanan came, saw horrible movies and conquered YouTube with his ‘Pretentious Movie Reviews‘ series.
He is also a known face in other YouTube videos, the stand up circuit and young girls’ mobile wallpapers. So without getting too carried away with the introduction, we take you straightaway to BlogAdda‘s interview with the dimpled Jack of all things humourous – Kanan Gill.
*Please note the straightfaced picture below to give this interview an aura of seriousness.
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.
Hriday Ranjan is an MPhil student who blogs at HeartRanjan. Recently, his blog post ‘Why is Aamir Khan Such A Pretentious Prick‘ showed up on everyone’s social media feeds, lending the satirical blog post instant virality. The post, which was written after Aamir Khan’s response to the AIB Roast, raised a lot of laughs and sparked many a conversation. But Hriday was blogging long before his post spread like wildfire, and his sense of humour and observation has won him a steady stream of followers. BlogAdda spoke to Hriday about his blogging journey, and the interesting reactions that his recent post has generated.
Somdyuti Datta Ray is a student of Communicative English, and the blogging world knows her as the voice behind One Tiny Wish (previously Stilettosaurus). She blogs about fashion, books, travel, lifestyle, TV shows and adds a wonderful dash of fantasy and magic to her posts. She was nominated as one of the Top 5 Fashion blogs of the country at WIN’14. We sat down over glasses of (virtual) Butterbeer to talk about her blogging, her life and dreams.
