Well this post marks the approximate anniversary of my blog (1 year and 15 days to be precise). And as on this day I look back in time, I have to admit, it has been a long time… I remember the day when I wrote the first post “The Mound of the Dead“, I had no idea that this blog will last so long. All I had in mind was a set of posts on the then recent Gujarat tour that one of my friends Subhradeep and myself had just completed. Thanks to his superb camera and brilliant photography skills I was able to add some gibberish of my own and bring out a ‘something’.
I was convinced that that blog won’t live for long. Reasons… Firstly I had no idea what to write… and secondly I had no idea that a physics student can write something which the ‘general people’ could read. No seriously… sometimes we ourselves are amused by the amount of ‘Dirac Deltas’, ‘Considers’, ‘If…then…else’ that have entered into our colloquial conversations. So I was convinced that writing was not my cup of tea.
That was a day… And this is another day. I never thought that I would make ‘friends’ with people across the globe. (And yes, my friends are jealous about it). Now wordpress has become more of a coffee house to me unknown people meet and become so close to heart that their problems seem to be our own. I can’t help but name some of the most amazing people I met in this virtual world. These will surely remain one of my dearest friends even beyond the blog…
Dietlind Wagner… The first one to comment on the blog and an amazing artist who lives in her wonderful little world of puppets.
White Pearl… My first friend from our neighbour from from the west ;). Amazing, cute, wonderful yet confused personality and a brilliant writer. She claim to be as worthless as a grain of sand, but names herself ‘White Pearl’. See I told you… confused personality. (Sorry Sister :P)
Maria Imran… Amazing writer, amazing poet and amazing artist. Currently appointed as my Urdu teacher ;).
Mekala Rodrigo… Brilliant photographer and my travel guide (in future)…
Sharmishtha Basu… With her short poems which go straight to the core of the heart.
And the list could continue but the clock is ticking past. And I have to rush to catch a bus.
The journey till now has been great
What about the future? We have to wait…
Thank you my readers for being with me and thank you WordPress for letting me me meet these amazing
Sharodiya Shubhechha (Autumnal Greetings) to all of you… 🙂
