I find Google Trends a fascinating tool - sorry Yahoo Search and MSN Live Search - but today's hottest search terms in India have nothing to do with Porno or Katrina Kaif but all to do with Satyam. However, I saw that NDTV Profit is the most popular search term for news, though that said TV18 needn't worry since they'll be getting a bulk of the traffic today at MoneyControl - just skim the top twenty. The visitor numbers for these sites must be off the scale today.
I wonder how the trends will evolve through the day. Taking a break from seeing a puffy faced and visibly angry Udayan - who can't help but remind us that three months ago he was lied to at the second quarter earnings call. But to be fair, Udayan has a point, while Ramalinga Raju would like everyone to believe that he managed to pull off a Rs 5000 crore scam (maybe Rs 7000 crore) scam by himself, he couldn't have done it himself. Just like Telgi wasn't alone, this man wasn't alone.
Edited to add: Michael Hirschorn has written a very scary piece for The Atlantic. I foresee a flood of American reporters in India over the coming months, while the media scene here goes through a dramatic transformation itself.
