    Hi Sejal,

    thanks for the feedback and the concern. yes pages dont work as corporate site is under an upgrade and we had to stop it mid-way due to heavy project pressure. Same goes for the blog…has been quiet for a while so relax and just wait for both and to come online.

    Just came across your blog and read almost all the posts on e-commerce. You raise all the relevant points with great clarity. Will be checking back regularly now.

  16. 17 Leonard Fernandes November 22, 2007 at 11:00 pm

    Hello Siddharth,

    Nice to see another blog dedicated to e-entrepreneurship in India. The way online initiatives have been mushrooming in India, there cannot be enough of these but you have indeed been able to differentiate yourself by analysing instead of merely reporting.

    You also need to cover e-based services, those that depend on the internet for only the initial part of the transaction. Businesses like CinnamonTeal Print & Publishing Services. ( We believe that we are India’s only print-on-demand service provider and we are doing our bit to wake India up to the benefits of print-on-demand.

    All the very best,

    Leonard Fernandes

    Ashish from Citipals here.
    Read your blog and really liked it. Its a very interesting one indeed. I see that you are interested in stuff that pertains to Indian startups and entrepreneur ventures.
    Citipals is a website that caters specifically to Indian audiences and contains information on lifestyle entities such as restaurants, bars, theatres and of course movies in cities like Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata( Plan to extend the cities covered to many others in the near future).
    We also enlist the new releases in Bollywood and Hollywood that are screened across the country.
    Our objective behind emailing is to request you to post a story on the venture and effort, that specifically caters to the Indian audience.

    We have created a new and interesting feature called MovieMatch. MovieMatch is a place where you can rate popular Bollywood and Hollywood movies. This feature enables you to compare your taste with your friends and at the same time, its also a great platform to make your opinion known to people.
    We have created a facebook app for MovieMatch as well where facebook users can play MovieMatch.

    ou can read our latest press release on a facebook app by us at
    We also tried something sarcastically funny in the recent past and you can read a bit about it at ( this is a small jscript animation slideshow which shows what will happen if social networks become “really open”)
    Further, you can read out press release on MovieMatch- a small game which lets you and your friends share ratings and opinion on a set of hit bollywood and hollywood movies; both blockbusters and new releases at
    Press release for MovieMatch is posted at

    I hope that you will like the matter that we have gathered at citipals.
    Looking forward to your reply.

    PS: If you like the website, but due to some reason, are unable to post a story/article or our press release on our website, do let us know. We would love to have you as a contributing user on our website. citipals ensures that users have fun while sharing things that interests them.

    The trip to attend a marriage in the ever growing (and congested) Indian cities is a real pain. Locating the venue in the new localities (for a newbie to the city) is a bother. The onus of guiding the guests and making the trip that much more memorable lies with the couple.

    We have directory of marriage halls / wedding venues / kalyana mandaps. Our database can be searched by locality / name, see the location and plan your trip to the venue.

    We are online with the first directory for Bangalore (with around 600+ venues) –

    Appreciate your feedback and suggestions.

    Hi Siddharth,

    Excellent blog!
    Very refreshing and informative. Really enjoyed going through your archives.

    Happy Blogging! 🙂

  23. 26 Sarbajit February 18, 2009 at 7:14 pm


    It seems you carry a fairly extensive knowledge on the pros and cons of online business models in India. I needed some tips on the following:

    – Do we have any master list for all possible items that are offered online in India?

    – Is there any report on the logistics systems that they use to deliver?

    – Is there any government body in India that tracks the list of such active online business?

    I would appreciate if you could help.


  24. 27 Gaurav Sinha March 1, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Hello Sidharath,

    Any pointers would be really appreciated!
