RaagVamdatt.com completes two years of its existence today
With your encouragement and support, www.RaagVamdatt.com completes two years of its existence today. The very first article on this website – Goal Based Investing – was written exactly 2 years ago on 25th of November 2007.
I’m sure this is just a small milestone considering the long journey ahead, but it is nevertheless an important milestone at this stage. Let me list a few important things that we have done together in this past one year:
The number of registered users crosses 8000
www.RaagVamdatt.com now has more than 8000 registered users. This number stood at 2600 exactly one year back – over 5400 users have registered themselves in this past year alone!
India’s first Hindi website on personal finance launched
India’s first Hindi website on personal finance – Aapka Paisa, Aapki Planning – was launched about a month back, and has received very good reviews and coverage. This website is currently in its initial stages, but would be at-par with this English version in about two months’ time.

Getting featured in Mumbai Mirror
The website got reviewed by Mumbai Mirror, a very popular mainstream newspaper. It got a very good rating of 4/5. The one thing that pulled rating down was a small issue with site navigation, which was promptly corrected after the review.
