I have been following r2iclubforums for years and years. I have written about this forum in my book, Return to India.
When I posted in the forum recently to publicize my book, the organizers came back to me with a barter arrangement. They would help publicize my book and I would help publicize the forum. There is no legal agreement or fee from either party. It is a shared cause that we both believe in.
This made eminent sense because it is both transparent and useful. For anyone who is caught in the r2i dilemma, I highly recommend this forum as a place to engage in. There are countless people who are going through the angst and dilemma and therefore, you feel that you are not alone; that people understand what you are going through; and that there is a community of people with shared goals.
Having such a community is invaluable when you are doing something that you think is contrarian. For that reason, I recommend r2iclubforums as a place to visit. And I thank them for publicizing my book. The link to the website is below.
