Unfortunately this winter break did not have anything in the way of exciting travels for me. But others were much more lucky.
Kerim and Shashwati, for example, have been doing interesting stuff in India. Read Kerim's posts on Dehradun, Denotified tribes (especially that one), and Adivasis.
Elck (Vernacular Body) also has been in India, and has great posts on it. I especially liked the post on Bombay.
And Ms. World has been all over Southeast Asia. There are a number of good posts there, so I'll just link to her whole blog.
And you should also read this week's bit from Fareed Zakaria (not a blogger, but I found his latest through Manish, who is one) has been in Delhi and Chennai recently. He is impressed -- to an extent -- at what's happening business-wise and otherwise. (Manish is less pleased... read his post too)
