Sidin Vadukut is a columnist, writer and blogger from India. He is currently the managing editor of LiveMint.com. He is the author of the best-selling novel, Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin Einstein Varghese. One of the early bloggers from India, Sidin’s blog Domain Maximus rose to sudden fame with his Travails of Single South Indian Men of Conservative Upbringing piece.
After graduating, with a few free months before he started work at a factory in Chennai, he began to write long, digression-full email newsletters to a few dozen batchmates. It had movie reviews, random essays, thoughts, ruminations, jokes, bad jokes, poor jokes, abysmally poor jokes. In October 2002, someone showed him this blogging platform called Blogger by Pyra Labs. And he thought it was awesome.
He has done his engineering from REC and his MBA from IIM-A. One of the early bloggers from India, he also writes for mainstream media.
He writes the hugely popular column, Cubiclenama, a humorous take on corporate life and mainstream corporate culture for Mint Lounge. He regularly contributes to various websites including Mint and ESPN CricInfo.
Seeing the current scenario and quality of Indian blogs, he feels that with the number of talented writers out there we should have more multi-author blogs for politics, books, culture and so on. Also it would be awesome if there were good sports blogs; especially for cricket.
The latest and upcoming, new trends, topics related to corporate life and mainstream corporate culture, that he shares through his blogs and articles everytime for his readers & the industry across, entitles him to be our Bloggerati of the fortnight.
