Saturday Special: Snacks and Leftovers

If you're new here, welcome. The Green Light Dhaba is Delhi's only "virtual dhaba." We serve up fresh thinking on the environment, the economy, and justice every Tuesday and Thursday. Because we are new, we've also been working weekends. But the guys and I really need a little time off. So we came up with the idea of a "Saturday Special."

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you'll still get a full menu of fresh thinking and a place to sit and talk.

On Saturday's we're going to try a new format:
snacks and leftovers. In the snacks section, you'll find short bits and links that we just weren't able to work into the main menu. Some of them may turn into longer pieces in the future, and some of them are just for fun. If you have ideas for material we could use in this section, please do let us know. In the leftover section, we have the best of the Green Light Dhaba, for those of you who might not have seen it all.

Just one more thing, before we bring out the menu. We are a new here in cyberspace, so we need all the help we can get. If you like what you see, please give us a shout out, blogroll us, tell your friends, etc.

Let us know what you think of the Satuday Special, and we hope to see you back here next week.


  1. Nice menu! Looks like you keep a little notebook with you when you go around collecting links and ideas to blog about :)

  2. @Bhagwad--Ha! I confess, you are right. I have one of those 15 rupee rough copies you can get in any Delhi market. Mine has a stylized drawing of some animals on it.
