TheFreePost.In is a break from the mundane. It came up at the end of several coffee-table discussions amongst a group of like-minded enthusiasts. We make a conscious attempt to promote South Asian cultures and peculiarities in particular but are also open to ideas beyond South Asia. All the sections in a way are primarily concerned with the eight South Asian nations viz- Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. TheFreepost.In is open for all believers in good. We intend to bring to you good news from across the countries and compile them in the section named “The Good News”. “Did You Know” brings to you facts about the region. “The Itchy Feet” is for all travel enthusiasts while the “Cullinary Junction” is to be the gastronomes’ rendezvous. We are open for short-stories, essays, poetry, fine arts, photography, and every possible way of contribution. Be a part of the cause.
