NDTV News Feeds

Indian News Channel NDTV has started offering RSS feeds for the news content in NDTV.com

The painful part is that you need to register with them and they will email you a customized RSS feed link, which contains your user name and password in the RSS feed link. I don’t know what NDTV is trying to achieve by following this method. Maybe they want to keep track of the number of their RSS subscribers. Hope they don’t change RSS to Really Complicated Syndication (RCS).

10 Comments:

  • There is an easy way out if you use Bloglines or any other feed-aggregator. It would prompt you with a list of feeds once you enter the URL and click subscribe.

  • Now this is really funny, if one wants to know the amount of subscribers they have for RSS, this can be done simply with usage of some scripts, if you have checked Rediff.com's RSS, they track each RSS and everynews people come from.

    Thats something really good, but what NDTV trying to do is really crap, they should learn keeping userfirendly always helps, also RSS subsription takes lots of banwdith of the server, may be this is the reason they are adding so many security concerns ?

    Thanks of the update Kaps ;)

  • From antrix' posting it really looks like a Really Stupid Syndication. after all we have RSS for the single URL convenience, don't see a point in doing this way :-s

  • they have their own business motives... they can use personal information like e-mail ids for supplying their content...

  • @ev,
    I normally use the default feeds for Blogger based blogs

    @Dreamchaser,
    Even I feel that this is strange....that too from a tech savvy group like NDTV

    @Antrix,
    Thanks for the Bugmenot links....but I have already subscribed to NDTV feeds :-)

    @Narayanan,
    Even I don't see a point in doing this

    @Sai Thilak,
    People may not like to be spammed by providing their email ID's. The other options is to ask people to submit email ID's so that NDTV can update people about developments.

  • Rahul Gandhi’s Future Prediction by Pt. Shyam Sharma

    Mr. Rahul Gandhi had born on 19th June 1970. Mr. Rahul Gandhi is a Scorpion by Moon Sign and his Lagna his Cancer. Out of 13 Prime Ministers 8 were born in Cancer Lagna. Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Soniya Gandhi have also born in Cancer Lagna. Actually, Cancer Lagna is a King Lagna and those who are born in this Lagna are very hard –working, lucky and they definitely achieve success in their life.

    When Mr. Rahul Gandhi had born my Grand Father (Prahladrai Khedwal) told me that he will definitely become the Prime Minister of India, because his kundli has a very powerful Rajyog. As you know, when Mr. Rahul Gandhi was born Indira Gandhi had defeated Pakistan in 1971 War. This was one of the biggest victories of India over Pakistan. It was also a Historic moment for India and Indira Gandhi, which created a huge name for both of them in this world. Mr. Rahul Gandhi was also lucky for his father because he was the only person who was a Pilot and later went on to became the Prime Minister of India. Since he has born in Jeyshta Nakshatra he is very Honest & Sincere like his Father. Mr. Sachin Tendulkar has also born in Jeyshta Nakshatra and like Mr. Tendulkar he is also going to be a Winner and an Achiever in his life. Though he has born in such a powerful family he is still a down to earth person. He behaves like a common man to whomsoever he met. Since his Rahu is located in Eighth House he has a very long life. Fourth House Jupiter is making him famous in Public like his Father. It has been seen that Scorpions love their mothers very much and with the grace of their Mother they fulfill each & every dream of their Mother. Since Mr. Rahul Gandhi’s Twelveth(Foreign) House has a combination of Sun and Mars therefore he can become a very successful Foreign Minister of India. Looking at the present scenario our country needs a leadership who can take the common man along with him and make him a successful person in his life. In today’s world of competition we need a person who can represent India globally in various streams and without a shallow of a doubt that person is Mr. Rahul Gandhi. In the coming years we can face problems on the borders of our country because of our respective Neighbors therefore it is very necessary for us to be Careful.

    According to me between 30/09/2009 to 30/09/2015 is not good for our Country. Therefore during this time it is very necessary for our Military Force to be Alert. We can be facing problems such as Terrorism, Cross Border Attacks and Riots in our Country. Especially states like Assam, Meghalaya, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh & Tibet along with Kashmir have to more careful than the others since they are located on our Borders. We can be attacked by China, Pakistan & Bangladesh directly or indirectly. Therefore looking at this future scenario it is very necessary for us to elect a person who can face such kind of problems brave fully and show our capability to the entire world. According to me that person can only be Mr. Rahul Gandhi and I think this because in his horoscope Saturn is situated in Tenth House which makes a Neech Bangh Rajyog. As a result of this Rajyog he is surely going to become the Prime Minister of our Country and this period will come between 08/05/2013 to 08/05/2014.

    Now, looking at his present condition of the stars he will marrying soon. He might get married between 09/12/2007 to 30/08/2008. His wife will be very beautiful and she will belong to a good and reputed family. According to me his wife will be from a famous Political family and after marriage he will be a father of 2 sons. Currently Mr. Rahul Gandhi is going through Moon Mahadasha and Rahu Antardasha which is not that much result oriented for him. From 08/05/2008 Jupiter Antardasha will start and this dasha will be the most favorable dasha of his life. In this dasha he can become the Foreign Minister of India. He will be the most successful Foreign Minister of our Country.

    I am requesting Mrs. Sonia Gandhi that you should make Mr. Jyoti Basu the President our Country because he is vastly experienced in developing relations with other Nations. Also Mr. Basu possesses all the qualities of a good President such as Intelligence, Integrity and can be Diplomatic according to the situation.

    Finally, I would like to say to Mrs. Sonia Gandhi that Stars are in favor of Mr. Rahul Gandhi and he is definitely going to become the Prime Minister of India in the year 2013. But looking at the current situation of the stars my calculations say that Mr. Jyoti Basu will be the ideal President and Mr. Rahul Gandhi will be the best Foreign Minister of our Country.
