I was seeing my traffic stats today and I saw surge of visitors coming here through TimesOnline UK a widely read premier news portal in UK.
These visits to my blog were from one of the articles published today by TimesOnline UK, where they featured Trak.in as one of their top picks for “India Business” blogs.
Recognition is one of the most important morale boosters and I am no different! So I guess it is the day to blow my trumpet :).
Interestingly, the first 4 blogs listed are my favorites too..
Here is the complete article as published by TimesOnline UK.

Capitalist India Not for socialists, this one. Under the tag line ‘Free Minds and Free Markets in India’ Capitalist India takes issue with ‘Leftist predictions’ about the US economy, hails the arrival of Wal-Mart ‘creating jobs for the masses’, and, most recently, offers its solution for global warming: more prosperity. “Expressing concern for the environment and global warming is the new fashion of the day for global elite opinion, perhaps only second to disparaging US President, G W Bush,” it says.
India Inc. Part of the Digital Inspiration technology blog – which boasts and average of 1.2 million hits per month – India Inc. offers Indian business news and analysis across a broad range of sectors. Starbucks, Formula 1 and Tata all feature in recent posts.

The Business of Bollywood More Bollywood than business – currently ruminating on whether or not Shilpa Shetty is a home-wrecker – but the Our Bollywood blog does track events in the film industry, including recent news that Disney was considering a $30 million investment in a production company that has apparently also drawn interest from Sony Pictures and News Corporation, parent company of Times Online.

Don’t trust the Indian media! An example of a blog with an agenda. Its author, a 28 year old print journalist from New Delhi, argues that the Indian media is “full of vested interests”, but despite his own declared interests, for example his irritation with “the way the Indian media takes the moral high ground”, his posts do offer a close look at events in the Indian media world.
Thank you Times Online for featuring. I guess in next six months you should see Trak.in among top 3 if not No. 1.
