February 18th, 2009 · 43 Comments

Way back in Oct 2008, I had done a post on Design your own Tshirts… I had written to every website i had mentioned and some of them got back to me and were nice enough to give away some freebies.

inkfruitInkfruit promised 3 tshirts free! Priyanka from Inkfruit has been after my life to get this post up and running. Priyanka 1000 apologies for the delay πŸ™‚

So who should i give the 3 tshirts too? Give me 3 websites/blogs/forums which you think rocks!

Dont give me the cliche’d yahoo’s hotmail’s and gmail’s…
Has to be something which readers will appreciate reading/knowing about…
Do give a reason why you think the website is kewl according to you…
Brownie points if One of the three websites mentioned is an Indian website


  • – Good info for designers/freebies
  • – Good music/videos and games
  • – For all gadget freaks

The contest will be open for a week roughly and for People in India only. {Inkfruit will deliver it in India only}


All the best!

    A good looking contest to get some attention. Way to go Inkfruit! I’m not sure if your looking specifically for design sites but here are some of the sites that I visit regularly.

    – – Good site to learn photography. For photographers of all experience levels.

    – / – These are the ultimate sites for designers / creative artists. Lots and lots to learn and get ideas from.

    – – This one I’m sure many would be aware of. They regularly write articles on advertising, tech, mobile. They also have a section for startups, funding, etc. I like the events that they organize regularly.

    Nice magazine

  • 12 paresh // Feb 18, 2009 at 7:32 pm


    This site will give you all the latest information & upcoming hollywood movies traillers & info about that this is the coolest web site for Hollywood lovers for getting latest info for the movies & gossips in Hollywood.


    Another coolest web site for downloads.. every latest or oldest Hollywood movie & music torrent is available on this site you can download very fast by using this site by using lime wire or any other torrent down loader.

    3) (ya domain is .ru)

    Hmmm look’s like a unheard web site Hhhh..
    but this is a very magical web site for those who wants to access the blocked url’s inside the company,schools,colleges
    actually it is a web search engine type web site in which you can type url which you want to visit and that will open in your browser even if it is blocked by your administrator.
    because you are now accessing the (.ru) domain which your admin will not block and now your request is going from russia directly to let say so it will open and you can enjoy all things on that.

    In the words of its author “PluginID, named after the slogan β€˜Plug into Your Identity’, is a site about helping you realise who you are”.

    Hubspot is basically the alpha and omega when it comes to internet marketing.

    Some of the coolest web technologies are on display @ Also they have a very comprehensive ‘downloads’ page that contains nearly every piece of code that you’d need for a website

  • 14 Annkur // Feb 19, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    Ok here we go: – A super site for technology lovers – Serves all alike – amatures and experts. I feel the american blogs aren’t (always) that easy to relate for Indian readers. So Digital Inspiration scores for me. – over 11k posts in 2008 – Anything on technology and its there. Reports global stuff aswell, Search India … they have covered tech hapennings here aswell. Often before Indian biggies did. 24×7 updates, thats what impresses me. (And not to forget their authority – They are capable of knocking off $4bln off apple market value in 20mins) – While engadget is mostly gadgets and small posts on latest updates, TC is the industry reporter. If you are looking for review, analysis on tech hapennigns this is the place! (Not to forget the startups)

  • 15 Divya Chakravarthy // Feb 19, 2009 at 4:39 pm

    Ok Kunal, (you did mention you have my size!!) there you go!

    My top picks: – The cause is amazing and a site which never fails to move me every time I read it – Their content is great and they are mostly just aggregating it – never let me down whenever I have searched for music!

  • 16 ankita // Feb 19, 2009 at 5:17 pm

  • 18 Mahafreed Irani // Feb 19, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    1. Nice mix of writing on Mumbai:
    2. Comprehensive search for people
    3. My own blog πŸ™‚ because it is mine

  • 19 Nirav // Feb 20, 2009 at 12:22 am

    Here’s how it goes for the three categories you’ve mentioned –

    Website: – super site to discover and connect with Indian blogs and bloggers

    Blog: – a great resource to learn if you are a blogger and to inspire if you are starting! πŸ™‚

    Forum: – great discussions!

  • 20 satish // Feb 20, 2009 at 12:25 am

    My top 3
    Indian creativity at its best.
    weird and wonderful things
    The site every Indian loves to check out πŸ™‚


  • 21 Narayan // Feb 20, 2009 at 12:33 am

    I would say Reddit ( is a gem missed out by a lot of Indians. Lots of interesting news and even more interesting discussions to read. Another from the top of the head would be Freakonomics blog ( Very interesting read. Third one I visit on a daily basis is Lifehacker ( Totally awesome. You don’t have to be a geek to appreciate it!

    No long queue, accessible on mobile to book ticket. Really useful


    Sharekhan is very popular and rocking the share market ! Real Need.

    i got my first job using this website !


  • 26 Hemantkumar Jain // Feb 22, 2009 at 3:27 pm

    1. – upload / search for documents
    2. – upload / share presentations

    over a period of time .. both these sites have managed to have a very good collection of docs and ppts’ on practically a very wide range of subjects. Like we do google search; a search on these sites often yields very good results.


    no explanation needed here …

    I also thought of the Indian Railway booking sites … , etc … but Raxit has already mentioned them so i am not repeating (by repeating them her)


  • 27 Nikhil Kulkarni // Feb 22, 2009 at 6:26 pm
    Its a site to backup all your data … starts with a 2 GB free account and an extra GB for every two people you refer to Mozy. The person who registers from your referal also gets 512MB for using your promotion code/ URL.

    I think in an age where all of us have huge amounts of data we want to be backed up and some of us so paranoid about loosing it that we backup our backups – Mozy is a gr8 solution. They take care of your backups …

    Call it BaaS .. backup as a service ..

  • 28 Nikhil Kulkarni // Feb 22, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    to add my 2 mores – doesnt need an intro … site to share presentations which are a cross between mindware – officeware and Art. Artifacts which are made in order to be shared – pity we didnt have such a service ealier. – amazing service which lets you scrap any (technically) static webpage and create a feed (XML / others) out of the changes in that page. Uses:
    1. change tracker … call it google alerts customized to changes on specific pages
    2. converts old web1.0 styled pages into new web2.0 styled content (RSS/XML)
    3. Coupled with services like Yahoo Pipes! classic content based mashups can be created …

  • 29 Karthiksn // Feb 24, 2009 at 9:42 am

    Had to go through my Google reader to find some sites.

    First is I am actually subscribed to two different feeds from Engadget. One is normal tech feed and other is mobile one.

    Second one is The Symbian Blog for all the happenings about Symbian OS.

    Third one is a daily dose of Cartoon,
    It has one of the funniest of web comics on web.

  • 31 Chetan Thaker // Feb 24, 2009 at 10:41 am – The best way to let the world know what is going on, in just 140 characters – Social Bookmarking, at it’s best with news from all over the world, sports, politics, funny stuff, hot trending topics, etc

    Sadly, but honestly, I dont think there are too many indian blogs/websites that I could come up with which are worth mentioning.

    Cheers !

  • 34 Salil // Feb 26, 2009 at 11:04 am

    1. Passive Aggressive Notes – Venting can be an art. And how. A smashing collection of ANGRY notes/hate mail from all of the world.
    2. Get Satisfaction – A more constructive way to VENT (don’t analyse me by my choices πŸ˜‰ ). A gr8 way to connect with the massive corporations and tell them what you liked (or didn’t), or about a bad product or service. (And they do respond)
    3. Stupid India TV – This one is the funniest (tho it hasn’t been updates for a while..) Screen grabs from apna own INDIA TV. A museum that unwittingly archives the deterioration of Indian television journalism .

    PS: My blog hasn’t been updated for ages either.. And i did try some experiments wid JavaScript (in d latest post) which didn’t quite come off.. And am too lazy to take tht post down. So bear wid it.. (if u go there in d first place)

  • 39 Lavin Mirchandani // Feb 27, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    1) | India Brand Equity Foundation

    Indian Website. Amazing research and inside matter on industries. A Must for startups and entrepreneurs researching their market. Moreover-FREE CONTENT!

    2) | Project Get In Line 2.0

    A project from students of the CMU university that works on making the waiting in Q funworthy.
    Its cool because u dont have to download anything, and play games with your phone as a control – I’d say indeed inovative!

    3) | i Love Bollywood

    A social network for Bollywood lovers. The beauty of this site is the backend tech that makes its search an uber cool feature.
    Also its smart manner of leveraging UGC to automatically generate related content types and making the site richer by 3x.

  • 40 Rajat Sachdeva // Mar 6, 2009 at 7:22 pm – Well, you wanted great sites, this website/app is the mecca for great sites hence making it a great site itself! – If we’re online, we all type! Now we can see who really has the fastest fingers in a typing duel against our friends. Freakishly addictive. – It’s good to see how some Indian online advertising is shaping up and taking creative form. Support the cause!:D

    I know I’m late(and won’t win the prize) but WTH I use these 3 sites extensively.

    1. Aalaap ( ‘s Lincr( and LinkBunch ( – Lincr is the equivalent of tinyurl, LinkBunch – well you get multiple links combined to 1 single URL.

    2. Arun (aka Mixdev (’s txtbin ( – want to enter lots of text (say, a log file output) and publish it ? Txtbin’s for you!

    Finally, I can never, ever leave out twitter. (
