Shaswati Talukdar is a productive filmmaker from India with already quite a number of films on her resume. She lives in New York and blogs about films, culture, and politics on blog.shashwati.com, this week's ecto-powered blog. The blog's design is sweet. In particular, note the neat gray patterned background on the sides (the entire design is available as a WordPress style download). It is a design that seems to work well with Shaswati's writing. If you're into movie making and you have a keen interest in culture and politics, this blog's worth your time.
