According to the blog the word Drishtikone is a word used for Perspective in Hindi. This blog is indeed simply a collection of the author’s perspectives on just about everything you can think of.
Visual Aesthetics – 8
Interesting and colorful look. However I must confess that this blog is a bit too cluttered. There’s just too much going on in both the left and right sidebar. This blog will benefit greatly from a little organization and cleaning up. Please lessen the links or at least put them in expandable menus. I also think the sponsors deserve better placement.
User Friendliness – 9
This blog has some pretty interesting features for the user. There’s the polls, and the cartoon for the day, and the usual comment feature. My favorite though since it is something rarely seen in blogs is the Voicemail feature where you can send Desh a voice message. This blog is pretty user friendly with all the navigation features needed including a link to the homepage when you go to a static page, whose absence is a pet peeve of mine since most bloggers never think of adding that. Due to the clutter though you will need to scroll down a bit to go to the Navigation section where everything you will need to navigate between posts are located.
Reading Enjoyment – 10
This is one of the most interesting blogs I’ve ever read. With such varied topics like poverty in India, movies, terrorism, spirituality, politics, and so much more. Desh has a an opinion about almost everything and his discussions are very relevant to people from the US to Asia and Africa and just about everywhere else in the world. Superb writing of a real thinker. This blog is a must read.
User Info – 10
Each and every post contains something truly useful. I didn’t expect to learn reading just the front page of one blog. It’s so much fun to learn something new each day. Relevant, useful, and up-to-date. This blog is truly more than just about one man’s perspectives in life.
Overall Experience – 9
I would have loved to declare this a Bloggy Award Winner but I have to be fair. And since this blog really needs to improve on it visual appeal than I can’t do that. Content-wise though this blog is a winner already.
