Is Indya.com to the web what mtv's to TV?
Indya.com caters to the entire family but I can't speak for TV channels. The Internet user is the 20-40 year age bracket which is the same for music channels.

Given the many horizontal portals in existence, what's different about Indya.com?
The fact that it is an exceptional brand, the technology and the quality of people and content will make the difference

What makes India the hottest web destination after Silicon Valley?
Really the number of net users. A Goldman Sachs study projects India to have 70 million users in the next three years. Also, the large cache of English-speaking people.

But won't that projection require a PC revolution across the country?
Information access shouldn't be restricted to the PC alone. Access to the net will be through many devices. And the prices of these technologies will drop.

The Big Question. When will the bubble burst?
Net isn't a bubble, some net companies are. All companies won't survive.

Do you agree with...
