Rug Pundits aims to be what others have earlier called a “filter blog”. The Authors share material on different topics that are currently in their scope of interest and which they would otherwise discuss sitting on a carpet, sipping ‘chai’ (milk tea). Being currently separated geographically we have taken these discussions to the web.

The word ‘Pundit’ comes from the Subcontinent (“a learned master”, often a Brahmin) and ‘Rug’ of course, although stemming from the Swedish language apparently is linked to the Persian and Central Asian region in its use.

The painting seen in the top-left corner is a Mughal painting ‘A Mughal Nobleman’ of 17th century in Indiana University Collection.
