NYT launched India Ink in early September to “provide more in-depth, on-the-ground coverage of the world’s biggest democracy — and of a people who know that no matter how far they roam, their hearts will always be Indian.” At the time of this writing @nytindia had 6,250 Twitter followers.
India Ink has 21 writers in its stable, covering everything from politics, business to street food, to the news on $35 tablet computer released by Indian government, and more.
I quietly hope that NYT will launch a Hindi version of the India Ink someday. What do you think?

By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Welcome to India Ink, The New York Times’ first-ever country-specific site for news, information, culture and conversation.
With an expanded team in India and a line-up of great contributors, India Ink will provide more in-depth, on-the-ground coverage of the world’s biggest democracy — and of a people who know that no matter how far they roam, their hearts will always be Indian.
We’ll be reporting from the Ram Lila grounds in Delhi to the boardrooms of Silicon Valley, tracking the triumphs and frustrations of daily desi life and the changes sweeping the nation. As we do, we plan to collaborate with readers in new ways, spark new debates and re-think old ones — all while producing more of the high-quality news that The New York Times is known for.
We’re at IndiaInk@nytimes.com or on Twitter at @nytindia, and we’d love to hear from you.
