It’s All About You, Baby!

We care about what you want. We pay attention to what you say and we respond.

Sound like your dream spouse/parent/boss/lover?

Nope, it’s just us at Republic of Brown.

30 issues down and we thought it was time to reach out to you, the reader. After all, you customize everything you touch. Used to be just cufflinks and towels that got your personal imprint. Now you want – nay demand – a little (insert your name) in all you do.

So, we went though all our stories to get a sense of what you deem “Like” worthy.

While a helpful exercise, we’re not satisfied. We want even more direction from you. After all, it’s your world. Being the geek-meet-chic types, we dug around the internet, did some coding and pasting and came up with a poll to let you decide next week’s topic. Just vote, and voila – you’ll help choose if it’s music, fashion, food or something else Indo-cool we bring your way. We’ll tally your votes by Sunday night, pour a big pot of coffee (or a stiff scotch) and start hustling to do right by you.

Just think of yourself as managing editor, sitting in a white leather chair in front of a big red desk – kind of Devil Wears Prada-ish .

Now let your voice be heard. ( can take this widget and share it.)

And in case you were wondering, the top five stories in order of most “Liked” by you are:

1. India’s Frida Kahlo
2. Louis Vuitton, Diwali and a Dinner Date with Waris Ahluwalia
3. Hustle and Flow, Punjabi Style
4. India’s Answer to South Park
5. And tied in fifth place:
Monica Dogra, Ambassador of a New India
India’s First Oscar-Nominated Film Gets a Re-Mix

To personalize RoB even more, send us an email to with a story idea. If you include a catchy RoB style subject line, we’ll pay special attention.
