Blogging has been a sexy and engaging pastime for many. It’s been there for some years now. Although it seemed that the charm of blogging would wear out over the peak years of Facebook and Twitter, some recent political and cultural events have proved otherwise. Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot by Taliban began to raise awareness for girls’ education in Pakistan as a blogger. Like Twitter and Facebook, blogging stayed too. Unlike in the past, where you may have had just one platform to blog, like this one you are currently reading, now many other websites offer blog-spaces. Interesting experiments take place in blogging, each day. One of the most important events that occurred recently in blogging in India was the introduction of Kindle ebooks into the world of blogging. Someone combined the flexibility of blogging with the reach and popularity of Kindle ebooks. This ‘Kindle blog’ came through BW Publishing. It’s our honor to be a part of this grand mission and historical event. The writer, whose mind dreamed this idea up is none other than the acclaimed author of the Hope, Vengeance and History Trilogy and the bestselling author of You Should Know How I Feel…, Mr. Anu Lal.

Bestselling author Anu Lal has taken blogging to another level. The August-September edition of the kindle edition of his blog, The Indian Commentator is coming out this month through BW Publishing. His blog, The Indian Commentator is one of India’s leading blogs and the only blog with a Kindle monthly edition, known by the name, Unclassified Intelligence.

Publishing random blog-posts in a collection is a fascinating idea, not just for the blogger. The readers too can take a copy home and cherish those amazing and useful articles, fiction, or non-fiction, art or cooking, for generations to come. Anu Lal’s topics range from books to cultural events and from movies to cyber culture. Mr. Lal has also revealed to our editors, his hope that by the end of this year, he would be able to compile a collection of his popular articles on various topics in an omnibus book form.

Recently, bestselling author Ashwin Sanghi Replied to one of his book-review tweets that involved the latest thriller in collaboration with author James Patterson, Private India. This book review has apparently been one of the top discussions in Linkedin too. Acclaimed by both national and International personalities, The Indian Commentator’s page views has shown a steady growth over the years. Thousands of readers visit his blog page http://anu-lal.blogspot.in/ every day.

The August-September edition of Unclassified Intelligence features eleven new articles, one of which is written by Dr. hülya n yılmaz, a published author, a freelance editor and a Liberal Arts college professor with an extensive teaching career. Her article titled “Don’t Think I Am an App!” appeared in the Indian Commentator previously.

According to Anu Lal, the idea of publishing blog articles in book form is very intimate. In his opinion, he himself would love to keep a personal copy of all that appeared on the blog over the years, in a printed book form. The amazing popularity offered by Kindle ebooks is the fact that directed him towards publishing collected non-fiction from his blog The Indian Commentator, in ebook format. However, he surely expects to bring out an omnibus edition in print by the end of this year.

“I would love to keep a printed copy of materials that appeared over the years in The Indian Commentator,” he says. When he approached BW Publishing, we were only glad to assist him in this endeavor. As one of our editors pointed out, Anu Lal’s readers too would love to keep a personal copy of his wonderful and soul-touching articles.

Truly, blogging has taken a new turn, here. Is it going backwards, to the world of books, from where it initially originated? One never knows. But the truth is, it all gets more and more exciting each time.

The previous edition of Unclassified Intelligence was made available free, and immediately, it shot into top positions in the bestseller list. Apparently, the editor was right in his comment about what Anu Lal’s readers might want.

The author has plans to release the August-September edition of Unclassified Intelligence in a week’s time. We are all set with the formatting and editing of the book and already gave him our GO. However, he is delaying the release for a few more days in order to include an unpublished and new article on “blogging” as a surprise gift for his readers.

Wow! When Author Anu Lal takes up his pen, who can ask for more!

For the time being, BW Publishing has to keep the reading community waiting.

Just a few more days.

Keep watching this space for more.
