  20. Congratulations on achieving this landmark! Quite a few of the blogs I used to read 3-4 years ago have fallen by the wayside so it is great to see one enduring! I think this is something to be really proud of, I couln’t have kept going for this long!

    You will like the Siege of Krishnapur, make sure to check it out!

  21. Happy Birthday CM! I feel so fortunate to read this blog, I’ve always wanted to learn more about Desi History but never had the opportunity to do so formally (well, a little bit here and there) because my folks thought I’d be poor! So I ended up in a more marketable profession and while I love it, this is the best hobby ever! Thanks so much Sepoy!

  22. good blog. enjoy your posts.

    how about making the next step? Multiple posts a day, crazy irreverant rants. Let’s Juan Cole the subcontinent.

  23. No, man. It’s been on the to-do for a while.

  24. I’ve always meant to ask you (perhaps I already have, and have simply forgotten): as a chapati afficionado, have you read “The Seige of Krishnapur” by J.G. Farrell?
