Shrawan Raja- Managing Editor
Hi, I’m Shrawan, an automobile engineer based in Chennai and the founder of IndianAutosBlog.com. When I began the website in 2008, my ambition was to educate Indians in knowing what was happening to our cars abroad. In my agenda were also foreigners, who wanted to know the Indian automotive scene, as it has gained a wide reputation for being the most interesting market in the world.
My favorite car is the Tata Nano. It has placed India on the global auto industry map and invited a lot of attention towards India and Indian engineering. The Nano has substantiated one thing- Any thing is possible if you put your mind and act together. It’s something we Indians need to be proud of.
Now that you’ve learned about me, its time you know a little about the people who work with me everyday on IndianAutosBlog.com.
Anjan Ravi – Deputy Editor
My name is Anjan and needless to say, I’ll argue with you to prove that I’m the biggest automobile enthusiast! My affair with four wheels began way back, about 21 years ago when I was living in Singapore. Ever since then, I can relate all my ‘important life firsts’ to cars. The first book I ever read was World Car Guide. The first cartoon I ever saw was Speed Buggy. And like most of you, the first thing I did when I turned 18 was to get my driver’s license.
People usually ask me about the best car I’ve ever driven. And I say its my good ol’ SX4. No, it really is. And another thing you should know about me is that I’m a Lamborghini person. Maybe it’s the history of the company, maybe it’s the way those cars are perceived to be, but my dream garage will have a Lambo for sure.
If I were to get one from the past, it has to be the Aston Martin DB5 in a good silver color! (Think James Bond.)
What am I doing right now? Well, I’m fantasizing about the day I get to drive my Mercedes CLA. It’s a beautiful car. Lets not argue about that!
Stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com !

Karthik Balaji – Part-time contributor, International Affairs
Hi readers! Ships or Cars, machines do tingle a mad adrenaline rush when you’re in control of one. My rush started way back in class 6 thanks to the splitscreen NFS II.
Since then, I’ve been an ardent fan of cars and Need for speed alike. Admitted that I do not speak the auto language, I do admire a car for what it stands for (and doesn’t). And when you’re so close to the major auto hub of the world, You cannot stop gawking at the high end cars with their ferocious rumbles. You wish to seek and experience how they would feel in your hands, even if it means to test out the beasts in video games. But you’ve to admit nothing beats driving around on a road, cruising or racing.
