NetChakra: Book 15 years of the Indian Internet

I am glad to be one of the contributors to NetChakra, a book by Madanmohan Rao and Osama Manzar on 15 years of the Indian Internet.The book was launched in Delhi on Friday night.

My contribution is “The IndiaWorld Story.” I have compiled writings from the time I was running IndiaWorld to tell the story of how we started in 1995 and grew the site over the years, to its eventual sale to Satyam Infoway for $115 million in November 1999. Instead of writing now about that period, I have taken columns from that to provide a better context. Our memories sometimes can play tricks and make history somewhat revisionist!
