Official launch …

Yesterday, we launched this website / blog officially. We sent e-mails. Lots of them. We stopped just short of spamming!

We wrote on our personal blogs about Materialia Indica, and about our enthusiasm for this new, interesting project.

We asked our friends to tell their friends, colleagues and / or students. We also explicitly asked people to volunteer to contribute to this blog.

I think it’s fair to say that our efforts worked wonderfully. The blog stats tell us that we had over 330 readers yesterday. We also had nearly a dozen enthusiastic responses to our call for contributors to this blog. We hope many more will join our ranks in the days and weeks to come.

We will be sending the invitations over the next day or two. In the meantime, we have put together a short article describing what you need to do when you get our invitation. Have your first post ready!

Even if you don’t have anything ready, just come by and introduce yourself — preferably with a picture. Just like what Guru has done!

Now let me sign off, and go send some invitations! And then, off to some serious celebrations!
