This page will let you know what has been added/updated and when. If you are a busy, but regular visitor to our site, this page will be useful.
It does not mention updates of the front page articles/forums [normally once a week] or of events [please check the calendar for that, or the 'recent posts' on the navigation panel on the left, or better still subscribe to firstname.lastname@example.org . That way the information will come into your inbox. We are not too particular about the number of 'page hits'! The information in the RSS feeds will not be available, but you can go to the home pages of those and subscribe to them directly.]
The feeds from the egroups [NgoJobs and NgoEvents] are updated every six hours--at 0230, 0830, 1430 and 2030 Indian Standard Time, which would mean, hmmm..., 0300, 0900, 1500 and 2100 GMT. The RSS feeds on NGO jobs, training and events from Eldis, reliefweb etc are updated every hour.

Sequential upgrades, so nothing spectacular. The resources and links has some more. The section on social movements has been shifted to a different website altogether: movements.in It is a wiki based website, so all the more easy for people to contribute.
12 December 2008
Updated the development calendar. The other information on the site has also been significantly reorganised so that there is only one, or at most two, 'front pages' at any given time. The data has also been organised into different 'books' so that once you get to a page, other relevant pages are displayed on the left. Do let us know how that makes for access and readability.

A new book has been added to track the media and terrorism. This includes medial coverage of Kashmir and Mumbai, and is updated as new material becomes available. The purpose is two-fold: one to critically examine the media role in reporting of terror and shaping public opinion and two to give different points of view.

Added a new 'book' India Shining: The figures tell for whom and how. One page on how the labour is being squeezed needs to be added. More pages will be added to this book regularly to keep it up-to-date with information as and when it becomes available. Appropriate for Ambedkar Jayanthi and Vishu.
10 September 2007
Added menu item Scholarships. This is more comprehensive that the one in 'resources and links'. The older one will be retained for a while, and then replaced by this one.
20 May 2007
Added two menu items Civil Society Summit and Journalist Awards
And also reorganised the menu: donor directory, social movements free books and stuff, human rights manuals etc are now put under links.
The links about us have been taken to the left panel (about us, contact us, documentation course etc.)
It is now less cluttered. Hope you like it.

Started a new 'book' More Donors Will be building that into a sort of donor directory.
This is apart from the donors directories [Each has about 1000+ donors. So now lack of funding agencies should not be a problem!]

Thanks to Shishira, we moved to Drupal 5.1. You would probably miss that if we didn't point it out. But what you wouldnt miss is our all new look, customised by Shishira again! Hope you like it. For those who prefer the older look, we have retained it, but to be chosen by individual members.
