RSS Feeds for Indian Columnists

Frustrated by Indian Express's inability to provide individual syndication feeds for its columnists, I have written scripts to parse the HTML pages and generate the feeds myself.

Here are the feeds for
Shekhar Gupta
Tavleen Singh.
R. Jagannathan (DNA India)
Arun Shourie
Sudheendra Kulkarni
Ila Patnaik
Pratap Bhanu Mehta

If you want this for another columnist, let me know and I will add that too. This is very easy to do for Indian Express columnists as I already have the script, but I can also help with other websites.

P.S. The script is in ruby and I will release the source after I fix some things and clean it up some more.

Update: May 29, 2009
Added new feeds for Arun Shourie, Sudheendra Kulkarni and Ila Patnaik

Update: June 22, 2009 - Added columns feed for R. Jagannathan of DNA India

Update: August 11, 2009 - Feeds for C. Rajamohan , Harsha Bhogle , Shailaja Bajpai.

Update: Sept. 10, 2009 - You can use my shared page from Google Reader to see all the new posts from all of these columnists on a single page.

Update: July 18, 2011 - Added Karan Thapar.

One thought on “RSS Feeds for Indian Columnists

  1. I came across your blog while searching for Hridaynath Mangeshkar. 🙂

    I am a avid reader of Indian Express and firmly believe that it is one of the very few papers who do justice to journalism.

    Anyway, I would like to read articles by Sudheendra Kulkarni and Arun Shourie as well.

    Keep up the good work.
