A year looks like a reasonably long time when we think about it but it passes off in a jiffy when you have to live it. That’s how fast this last year of my blogger life has passed – in a jiffy!
This blog has become an important part of my life. It’s my diary, only public. Just as Iya stated in the first comment I received on the blog, this is the world of ‘self-expression’. More on Iya later. Coming back to the blog, I always wanted to be part of the blogger community. For more than 2 years, was just a follower, sometimes expressing my views via comments but mostly just a reader cum observer. Then, my wedding date got finalized. And what better time to start ‘self-expression’ than a wedding! And that’s when this journey started.
And in the midst of ‘marriage mania’, I went to Dublin (Ireland) for two weeks on training.
Come March and with everything behind me, it was back to routine work and married life. Some events had an epochal impact on me like the accident and the milestone. Some brought delight and happiness like success at work, Dad’s birthday and Roger Federer. Some disappointments like my driving license ordeal. Some observations on current affairs, Dubai taxi or Ramadan. A few movies. And some just brought plain ‘ol satisfaction or nostalgia like completing 3 years at Oracle, Bangalore, IPL, my team in Oracle India and my birthday. All in all, it’s been fun!
I would like to thank Priyanka, whose blog opened my eyes and the doors to the blogger world.
My wife for being my strength and inspiration. And for being my most silent reader! For the record – she has not commented ever.
Thank you, Iya, for your generous comments and for always being there.
My sister, Ruhi, for being an ardent follower with crispy comments.
And a big thank you to everyone else as well. There is going to be more. This is just the beginning. Stay tuned.
