About TFI


The Flabbergasted Indian (previously Hetal Patel's Blog) was launched in November 2012. In the last six years, from a naive teenager, I have grown into a perceptive man and similar has been the journey of the blog. 

What started as my personal blog where I used to share my experiences has now become a place where I try to make sense of things that surround us. 
The blog is about socio-cultural, political and economic issues of India along with sports, thought experiments and the best of all fan-fiction. 

Flabbergasted means shocked or surprised and the idea behind using this name is that The World in general and India in particular as a country and the people of India often do things that are shocking (negative) and also do things that are surprising (positive).
