India blocks Blogs

I read this news in Rediff and was shocked ! Is India following the footsteps of China?

What's more puzzling is the lack of coverage of this news by the Mainstream media ( atleast until now).

Here is a quote from
a blog that I read a few minutes back.

What I find disappointing is the mainstream Indian press. Where is the outcry? Where is the discussion? This situation has been visible in the Indian blogsphere since Saturday morning Indian time. It's now (very) early Tuesday morning in India and yet I haven't seen any coverage in the mainstream Indian press beyond the Rediff article mentioned above.

What's up with the "world's largest democracy"? Why no discussion?
