BN & WWW crosses the 5 year Mark!!!

BN and WWW is officially 5 years old

This year,  the blog was almost solely  taken care of by   “Mr. Ragothaman”. I am sure you will all join me in recognizing his fantastic effort. His blog posts are well -researched,  and thoroughly written. I have personally enjoyed all his posts and cant wait for his next. A Big Big Thank You Ragothaman!!!

Madhana Raghavan, Soumya, and Subhalakshmi are also credited with keeping my interest and hope for  BN alive.

Today, the stats counter reads- 358,525 hits. The Blog has 211 followers!!!

Top Searches that brought readers to this Blog in the past year (apart from the usual Bharathanatyam/ bharatanatyam/Bharatham)

  • Chidambaram Natyanjali
  • Shanta Rao

The search for the following performers brought readers to this blog (I limit it to the top 10)

Its quite upsetting to see a drop in trend for the much sought after weird searches. But guess what I have Good News!!!

People are searching for” thesis titles” and landing up in this blog :-). While last year someone searched for  “prerequisites for doing phd in nattuvangam”, this year it was “how to play nattuvangum?” Yes ! There indeed is a growing academic interest in BN.

And of course people did search for “Leela Samson Controversy”

Thanks are as always due to WordPress for everything that comes free with this blog.

Once again, an invitation to all BN lovers, please feel free to write to us at Replace “at” in the above email id with @.

From all of us gossiping at the back end of the BN&WWW, “Wishing you all great times ahead, with lots of good BN in it”!!!.
