Indian blogging communities and forums

This post has been updated in October 2018. 
 
The Indian blogging scene is live and kicking despite the meteoric rise in the popularity of social networking and bookmarking sites in recent years. 

But when it comes to blogging communities, there are just two of them that can be called good, and we have listed them below. Some good newspapers started blogs and then let them decay. 

Some Indian open blogging platforms - especially as part of portals of newspapers and television channels - started with a bang but have been abandoned now. Except of the Times of India blogs, there is no blogging section anymore on sites of major Indian media organizations. The list of top Indian blogs includes some blogs from this stable.

As of forums, there used to be some good forums - some general and some specific to narrow topics, but now only a few remain active enough.
