We started this blog about Malayalam cinema more than a year back and at the end of one year we want to pause for a moment and see where we are. We are happy to report that our online readership has increased to a scary level. This is besides the vast number of Feedblitz e-mail subscribers we have. What this means is that content published here is getting read by a large number of people, all around the world including one guy from Sudan. On our first anniversary we want to thank all our readers who have encouraged us to keep this site running. We are also grateful to our guest authors, Unni, Jo, KK and Raphel for their contributions.
So what brings people to varnachitram? What is in the mind of all those people who read what we write? Here is a snap shot of the most used search words in the past month as provided by Google Analytics. Once again we are thankful to Mamta Mohandas who beats all the superstars hands down.
On our anniversary, we want to discuss a topic which has been a bone of contention in the comment box – What ails Malayalam Cinema. This very important topic was suggested by Unni and he has written a multi part series on this topic. We also got few other folks to write articles on the topic and will be publishing the series this week starting Monday (with some scheduled breaks for review roundups). You can participate in this discussion by a) writing an article of not less than 700 words or b) discussing the articles in the comment box. Either way we hope you will join us.
