Fellow IndiBloggers! You did a great job and thank you for that. We hope that this effort kindled the spirit of Indian-ness in the IndiBlogosphere. Hopefully, this get-together brought us closer as a community. If this effort introduced you to even a single blog that you had never heard of before, if it prompted you to say, "ya man that blog is truly good, I must have it on my blogroll", we would deem this as worthwhile. What this years awards lacked was some slackness in nominations, many deserving blogs were perhaps left away, atleast for vernacular blogs we expected a lot more nominations, but hey this was just a beginning.
Here is to the IndiBlogosphere, hope all IndiBloggers would rise above the mediocre and strive towards excellence. Let Blogging make a difference to the world we live in.
