ZDNet: Indya.com is Gone
Indya.com started with an ugly show of its financial muscle, hype and unequalled fanfare. It paid no attention to quality of its programming or practiced thrift in its business processes. Even without the dot-com bust, Indya.com was headed for trouble.
Lesson from Indya.com -- If you are going to be a failure, don't be a failure that everyone loves to hate. Arrogance is never a virtue.
That leaves just four portal players in India -- IndiaInfo (who badly need a usability consultant for their website), Rediff (who badly need some kind of revenue), IndiaTimes (who need journalistic integrity), and Satyam (who are in need of all of above).
