Bye bye Pundit-Moshai.

A part of my daily routine, checking for newer blogs with newer topics have been centered around DesiPundit, the one-stop-shop for desi blogs. Day in, Day out Patrix, Kaps,Vulturo, Ash, Neha and others had been bringing us links to the latest and maybe the greatest of the desi blog activities of the day across the globe. Just like an old Bong habit of reading Anandabazar for better secretion of digestive juices, DP had also become a routine, missing which meant something hasn't been done today.

But now I have to discard that and need to look for alternatives. Because Patrix and company have decided to pull the plug on DP. It's very always sad to see someone go, but just like all others aspects of life we will learn to live with it. A BIG THANK YOU to all the DP editors for taking time out of your busy schedules to entertain us for so long. Desi Blogosphere will miss you and so will I.

Wish you guys all the best.

ps: Now that bloglines will be clogged with subscriptions from desi blogger does anyone know of any other alternatives ?

Hi Bishu,

Thanks for the kind words, and the warm wishes. It was a pleasure linking for DesiPundit, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Just heard it from you. It's pretty sad that they are folding! I can't believe they decided to bring down such popular site!

Ash, the pleasure is all mine :) Feel sad to see you people taking down DP, but I guess life has to move on and can't be selfish enough to ask you folks to give up your priorities for our sake. All the best for your next endeavours.

@TD,all's not lost. Saket aka Vuturo, one of the other DP editors, mentions that he intends to keep the spirit of Desipundit alive,although he is still not to sure about how he'll do it. Let's hope for the best.
