hey abodh! I came across your blog by chance. I was searching for some stuff on T.N. Shanbhag (of Strand). :)
The exhibition had really nice photographs. my compliments to rohan.
How did it turn out?
Candy told me today that we can even get postcard-sized ones made? Can we?

I wanted to know if it is possible to get an online shop going for wsd.

- Ashutosh, if you have not figured it out yet. :)

I have one guy in mind. Don't know what he is doing now. Was involved in setting up an online shop for a friend's site. So he may be able to help with the nitty gritties. Like getting a PayPal account to accept donations online, etc.
I will also ask around for a developer. Will keep you posted.

hey mate, I had seen the 'Strays of Mumbai' Calendar ad in the papers. Can I know where in Mumbai can I buy them? Can you tell me of a place somewhere close to Ghatkopar. I had sent WSD a mail but didn't get a reply.
