* Heather Timmons, the site's Delhi-based chief blogger, will be joining us via teleconference.
* Jim Schachter, the associate managing editor who helped get the site started, will be here in person anbd will explain how India Ink works and how it fits into The Times's global strategy – and, more important, field your questions and suggestions.
