Welcome to the India Uncut Newsletter

Hey, my name is Amit Varma.

If you have landed up on this page, it is probably because you are familiar with my previous work. I used to run a blog called India Uncut between 2004 and 2009. (It has since become dormant, and I use it now to archive my published pieces.) I now host a long-form interview podcast called The Seen and the Unseen, and teach an online writing course called The Art of Clear Writing.

Besides being a blogger and a podcaster, I have also been a columnist, a sportswriter and a professional poker player. I’ve written one mediocre book, but plan to redeem myself soon. And I want to write more now, stretch my writing muscle, write as I please, and not be bound by the constraints of publications and house styles.

That’s what this newsletter is about. I will write about India, economics, politics, sports, philosophy, liberty — and about writing itself.

Do subscribe if you wish to get full access to the newsletter and website. This is a free weekly newsletter — though I hope to be more frequent than that.
