My brother, Aditya who is a little more into the multimedia aspect of blogging than I am has dragged his fiancee, Prachiti into the Web 2.0 world as well. Considering the time he spends on IndiCast with Abhishek, I guess the only way Prachiti could do that was by joining them. She has gone the vidcast way by preparing short 4-minute videos on YouTube. She rants and raves on the current affairs in India. With the help of my brother, she is also hosting the videos on her WordPress blog, What’s Up, India?
Admittedly she is quite new at this and the videos may need improvement. She has produced ten videos so far and you can go back and check out the rest. But given that this latest video is one of her better efforts shows that she is learning quick. Please chime in with your comments and suggestions. I’m sure she will love to hear from you. Her YouTube Channel can be found here and her most popular vidcast (on Salman Khan) got more than 2,000 views (and nasty comments). The desi blogosphere has thousands of blogs, perhaps a dozens of podcasts but I’ve really seen or heard of any decent vidcasts. Hopefully, Prachiti does this often enough to carve a niche of her own.
PS. They are also looking for people who will write scripts for their vidcasts. Ash has written a couple of scripts for them and my sole attempt didn’t make the cut…yet. If they like what you have written and if you insist enough, I’m sure Aditya will agree on some revenue sharing :)
