Platinum ranked blogs for 2013-2014

UPDATE: The next edition of this list - for 2014-15 -  will come out on 31st July 2015

We are here with our Platinum Rankings for 2013-14. In our post of exactly a year back, we had described in detail why we call the blogs here as ‘platinum’ blogs, what type of blog we include in these rankings and what we can’t. So, we won’t repeat them here.

As in previous years, some blogs have lost and some others have entered the rankings. The listing contains about 40 blogs. In addition, there are 5 blogs from blogging platforms of Indian portals (rediff, timesofindia). These have been listed separately as in such platforms, the blogger does not have control over design and navigation aspects.

We don’t want to come between you the reader and our gems, partly because all these blogs happen to be better than this very blog / website, Indian Top Blogs. The platinum ranked Indian blogs for 2013-14 are:
