  3. Hi Amod / Elisa / Ethan / Matthew

    I am writing to you as the founder of Therappo.com, an online counselling startup. Therappo is a live video-chat platform aimed specifically at mental-health professionals in India. I am an occasional reader of your blog. Its clean & simple approach is very nice – in fact in the early days of Therappo, it did help us define our directions in many ways.

    I am writing this brief mail to request if you could to carry a story on us on your blog. We keep creating content and if you like, we can send you some for your blog. Or alternatively, you can take a test-drive and write about us yourself as you please. In other words, we’d me delighted to work with you.

    We are essentially India’s only video-chat based online counselling platform. Our big uniqueness is that unlike other online counselling sites, we do not send our users to Skype or Hangout etc. We have a very powerful and secure video system that works inside your web browser without needing any downloads or installations. Therappo is not only useful for counselling services, but also for live-elearning sessions, tutions, discussions that need to be done remotely. Company Note attached.

    Would also love your reactions if you can find the time to browse through our small, tight platform sometime. If you are interested in taking a trial-run, please let me know, we will be glad to take him/her through the platform and its video engine.

    Regards,

    • Hi Sanjay – I don’t think this would be quite appropriate for our blog, unless there is a specifically philosophical approach to your counselling that you haven’t mentioned. Best wishes with your service.

  4. I am a reviewer with Prabuddha Bharata. This May’s issue has my review of Indian ethics and earlier I had reviewed books in honour of T S Rukmani and more recently, on Kalidas Bhattacharya. I am interested in Tantric philosophy (Kashmiri Shaivism), theodicy and Indian/Western epistemology. I am especially interested in Vedanta and Advaita Vedanta.
    If you please scroll down the link above you will see firsthand some of my reviews. thanks.

    Thanks.
