Update (July 5th, 2011): Over past 4 years, Trak.in has grown tremendously – It is no more a single authored blog. We now have team of authors who write for us and we also get experts from their respective fields publish their columns on trak.in. While it started as a blog, Trak.in has now become a multi-authored and more diverse news and opinion site. Hope readers like the change that you are seeing
Trak.in is written by Arun Prabhudesai, an avid Internet geek, IT professional since 1996. I am in my early thirties, hailing from India and currently living in East Coast moved back to India. Have been in IT industry for more than a decade, and currently doing management and consulting work have taken a plunge into entrepreneurship.
About my Interests: As visible from my blog, I am passionate about (in no particular order) the new business trends in India, entrepreneurship, and Start-ups with Indian flavor. Other than that my interests include keeping in touch with latest happenings in the field of Politics, stock market, finance (although I have never been good at it) and off-course technology. I was a gadget freak till couple of years back, but when I saw myself spending too much of money on buying unnecessary stuff – it was time for me to cut down.
And I love photography too… It is where I let my creative juices flow. Unfortunately, I do not get time for this with whole lot other interests listed above :)
I spend nearly 12- 14 hours a day on my computer, out of which 8 hours is my full time work and rest of the time, it is either writing blog/ reading about all of the above or spending time with my wonderful family.
This blog officially started on 1st May 2007, although I wrote a few posts in the end of April 2007. The reason I started Trak.in was to keep myself, and in the process also the readers, intouch with latest Indian Business and Startup Buzz. The focus of this blog will always remain on Indian Business and startups in general, however, being in IT for more than a decade and being passionate about technology I may sometimes drift into Technology and Web2.0.
Trak.in does not have a laundry list of recognitions like some of the A grade bloggers, but yes it does get mentioned every now and then. Here are few that you may want to read.
