Dear Mr Blog,
This day, one year ago, I started blogging out of sheer boredom.Bhai suggested that I should try blogging to kill time and here I am , one year later, typing this post at almost one o'clock at night , even though I am terribly sleepy[yesss, people, am back to my khumbhakaran ways]...
Sometimes I wonder what I had expected out of this blog and how much of it I got!
For the first part of the question, I expected nothing.
And for the second, and more important part, I found soooooo many friends.
And the funny thing is 'people' per se were the last thing on my mind when I started blogging, I had no idea that there is a parallel blogistan out there..
Its funny how through you , I have managed to peep into the lives of so many others...to share their inner most thoughts, to see, that afterall, all of us are so very alike...
I myself have been a queer blogger..it is here that I am the most honest..and hence the most vulnerable. A couple of frineds here might think that they do not know me...okay they do not know that I have a weird nose or that I have crooked yellowish blackish teeth [I have managed to keep some secrets from them, you see*wink wink*] but in reality they know me better than most people I know in real time(gossh!).
I have thrown tantrums, sulked, bugged blogger friends, threatened them with closing down this place[ yh! right I am supremely vain and conceited, thats another secret!]..and what not..but you know Mr B, they have all taken it...
They have pampered me in many more ways than they think they have.They have listened patiently to me ranting and raving...tolerated my outbursts and what is more, have actually tried to calm me dowm.
Have actually tried to make a thoda sa silly, thoda sa stupid girl they have never met and most probbaly never will either, see a little bit of sense...
And you know what,more often than not, they have been succesful...
So, here, Mr B are some of my dearest blogger friends..one time strangers who have slowly, quietly and stealthily become a part of my part life :(In no particular order)
I will start with Niv( www.dottydotpixie.blogspot.com) who is a part of everything I am a part of.Here is to many many many years of friendship.cheers!*clinks doodh ka gilass*
It is funny how many sishetrs and brothers I have acquired over this past year...
It started with Sudhir bhaiyya(www.sudhirhasbe.blogspot.com), then came Praddy prajji(www.adjournment.bytebite.net) , a big time geek , whom , I dunno why, but I started refering to as 'prajji'...Praddy prajji sounded cool and prajji now he is !:)
There are sishters in the picture as well..another of my nautankiz began with singafuuriya bahin(www.sayesha.blogspot.com)--her blog is now a staple diet for me...I visit it so often and am so amazed and thankful for the frequency at which she churns out posts....I dun even remeber how we started with this bahin-bahin nautanki , but ultimately we actually ended up calling each others mum and dad, mausiji and mausaji!!!!heheh..And you Mr B, Miss,S rocks!! totally!!
Then there is Aarti di(www.rtiscool.blogspot.com) I have met her only recently but she is so terribly sweet that it is impossible to not like her . She also happens to be the only person on this planet whom I refer to as 'di '..I dun even address my real life cousins with that..It is only arti 'di'.:)
Then there is Moneyraj Singh India(www.chapaat.blogspot.com), who is like a brother to me.But he is also a supremely shilly boy!!!Very very shilly..will get angry at me for shilly things...will keep on insisting that he wont talk to me[shilly boy hai na woh, isiliye]He happens to be 2 years younger to me, but have a luk at him explaining stuff to me, asking me to be calm, trying to sort out my shilly rpoblems and you wud wounder who the older one is.... :)
That also brings me to Abhi(www.mydayzwithmyself.blogspot.com) His was amongst the first blogs I started reading..Yeah! yeah! eveyone knows Abhi is a funny guy who can make electric poles laugh..but he also happens to be a very sensible guy.His calm, sensible advice never fails to make sense .Extremely popular coz of his sense of humour, I like him better for his sheer common sense.[that does not prevent me from laffing my lungs out while reading his posts!]
And then saunters in Mr Kant(www.ranjanbox.blogspot.com) . I do not know any other person with whom I have fought with so many many times in such small a span of time. We fight and we fight and we fight..and then we take a break and then we fight some more! :) Unfortunately, Mr K happens to know exactly what should be said to get me seething angry one moment and in the pleasantest of moods the very next moment which makes fighting with him very difficult for me!*sigh!followed by a determined 'main-padhungi-likhungi-dacturr-banongi-type-of-a-luk, *
There is Sumit(www.sumittada.wordpress.com) a very regular reader and a not so regular blogger!!!Another geek in the making*sigh!*
hawwwwwwwwwww!!! HOw could I not tell you about my beti!!!!!!Creepu beti!!!!!!!!!chee cheee..kais hu main!!! Well..thats creepu beti for you..you would not know her,Mr B coz she does not blog but nevertheless, is a good friend and a sweet young girl who visits you very regularly.
Then there is Shreyansh(www.iamalluring.blogspot.com) who is amongst my pooranest readers.My posts are either hyper happy or hyper sad or hyper..err...hyper..as in they are always hyper..His, on the other hand are always calm.One can almost sense the calm brain riting that stuff..Thats why I like his blog.His posts are completely opposite to mine..and almost therapuetic.Granddd!! after bhais and behens,I now have found therapy through you as well, Mr B!!!:D
It is funny how someone can be just another new blogger one moment and 'OHMEGAWWWWWDDDD-he-is from-my-school!!!!!!!!!!!' the next followed by a 'OHHHH,YYYYDOUBLE GAWWWDDD-he-is-from-my-House-as-well' the very next!.That is exactly what happened with Fellow Martinian(www.adventuresofatraveller.blogspot.com) and me:)There are somthings that make you feel at home with some poeple in a nanosecond.Being fom the same school(though diff cities and diff batches,most probs) is one of them:)
Hail Hail the name we own!:)
and now now now now....the list can go on and on and on and on and it is almost two..
This has ended up being a very long letter but I just wanted to tell you a little bit about the many people I have met through you,Mr B.
It has been a nice one year.
I do not think my likhane wale skills have imporved one teeny bit..infact they is indeeds detereoratd but I have met some wonderful people thru you.
P.S. ooopppsss, I forgot to wish you!!! Happy budday!!!!!!
P.S--Hopefully lesser drama this year;)
