We are all flooded by news every minute, do I need to recommend more? Yes, if you are a non or average reader like me and like to hit google news every now and then to find out what is happening. But, the recent RIL Acquisition of Network18 got me thinking.
When I started handling TTP almost an year back, I made a list of all the blogs that covered indian startups and few international must read blogs. Every day, I diligently went through each of the blogs, which gave me lot of useful insights on how founders, PR agencies and other factors worked in the entire game. Feedly became my must read stuff everyday, a new habit I never noticed until recently.
As TTP painfully ended mid may – I no longer write at TTP, but still scan all the blogs and read all the important pieces published everywhere. Now, with nothing to write, I started reading more. text and topics. As Narendra Modi became PM and I became aware of feedly’s super powers, I added more and more sources.
With my feedly fully equipped to deliver all the useful and useless stuff to my laptop, I realized that I have stumbled across very insightful and lesser known blogs. For my dear readers, here is the list –
a) NewsLaundry : http://www.newslaundry.com
The website is rich with lots of opinions and the best part of it is the clothesline, which is a hilarious video take on current media. Make it a part of your reading routine.
b) TheNewsMinute : http://www.thenewsminute.com
Formed by several veteran journalists, this offers unbiased news and lot of links to other websites with content worth reading.
c) Quartz India: http://qz.com/india/
I first came across this when reading Mahesh Murthy’s views on Flipkart and Myntra deal and am stuck to it ever since. They publish really cool info, with lots of charts and unique news.
d) Scroll – http://scroll.in/
Quite Insightful. Watch out their left side scroller, and an article explaining today’s news in brief. Must add to your list.
e) LiveMint – http://livemint.com/
Although doesn’t quite fit here, it’s one of the best digital newspapers I’ve seen. Some of the articles are delightfully detailed and accurate. The last one I read was on RIL Acquisition.
If you still crave for the regular dose of news from TOI, Economic Times, DNA and other regular media outlets,there is an easier way : News In Shorts App. Just install the app on your Android Phone and read the regular news in much faster, efficient way.
NewsHunt is another app worth mention. Apart from adding a whole lot of e-papers, it sends push notifications when an important event happens. It’s good enough to keep you looking sane in any conversation.
