Varnam: A Topical Blog on Indian History and Culture

Posted on February 28, 2007

The 20 or so readers of Hindu Sutra might be interested in reading Varnam which is a topical blog on India, according to the author.

Varnam, which means color, features well dished out articles about Indian History, Archaeology, Ancient Trade in India, Old Kingdoms, and news related to these a lot of other things, mostly related to India.

It is one of the very few blogs that I find about India that has a very high sound to noise(music to noise?) ratio, and a blog that I can see myself aspiring to emulate.

  18. Along with every little thing that appears to be developing inside this specific subject material, all your opinions happen to be rather radical. On the other hand, I am sorry, because I can not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exhilarating none the less. It would seem to everyone that your commentary are generally not totally rationalized and in actuality you are yourself not even wholly certain of the argument. In any event I did take pleasure in reading it.

    Unlike Human Health Insurance, Pet Insurance allows you to choose any veterinarian, which provides you security knowing you
    will get the best treatment wherever you take your pet for treatment, and get
    reimbursed wherever you are in the coverage zone which is most
    of the United States veterinarian clinics and hospitals.
    Sole proprietors whose business debt and personal debt are not considered
    separate are especially at risk. You want an insurance policy that covers your requirements and is cost effective.

    Grandma Sue…There isn’t a McCall’s pattern for the nut-sac. It’s really just a matter of taste and size…a small handful of nuts might only require a decorative cellophane, whereas if you’ve got a big sac-ful to give, you might want to fashion a drawstring pouch (similar to a marble bag). Good luck!
