On the threshold...

My dear blogger buddies and million+ readers,

Exactly this day, last year, I published my first post and what a marvelous journey it has been thus far. The joy of seeing my words being published on the internet was ‘something’! And then finding so many excited fellow bloggers, first-time greetings turning into friendship. However, all things have to change as change is the only constant! The sole purpose behind this blog creation has been fulfilled now and I have no more words to share with this world as the urge to capture newer horizons propels me elsewhere!

This blog will now become a private dialogue space now that she has turned one! Trust me, none of my words will make sense to anyone henceforth!

I thank you all for being a part of this wonderful experience...a phase of a journey that will always remain special! To all you youngistan, soar high as you chase your dreams. To all of us wondering whether chasing our dream was a good thing and should it be continued further..well, single-minded dedication and the patience to pursue it will bring success coz that’s how HE meant it to be. To all of us who have given up, arise and begin now! Trust Life – it is the best Teacher!

OK! Enough of my wisecracks. Better leave this to the expert. Signing off now with an inspiring piece from Paulo Coelho…

“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting......Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams master the lessons we have learned as we have moved toward that dream. That's the point at which most people give up.... (At this point) Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.”

May the force be with you

P.S: This does not in any way mean that I will not visit you. You will still enjoy the privilege of my 'esteemed' readership!! have to tolerate my nuisance

Aww no more posts from you? Well regardless, sounds like this blog accomplished what you set out for it to, so all the best with what you choose to pursue in the future! Hopefully that will include something to do with writing - because you're good at it, so don't just let it sit on the sidelines. ;)

And yes, your esteemed readership will always be appreciated. <3

Felt bad for a second that you will be not writing.
But as you said about change,i agree with you fully.
wish you good luck for whatever you plan to do in life.
my blog as well as our other bloggers friends will miss your comments and your writing
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

good luck

I can understand you wanting to do this and bid adieu to posting. Trust me I do, because these days even I feel like going the same way. And I may.

That is how all we writers are - We writers have our own quirks and eccentricites, but unlike scientists, we have enough words in our vocabulary to tell the world why we get our quirks. :-)

But wherever you are, whatever you do, I wish you all the very best.

P.S Yeh private dialogue thing kya hai? Kuch samjha nahi.

Ah! woman, complexity be thy middle name
What is it that you wish to say?
What is it that you want to convey?

Aila! Mein bhi poet ban gaya!
:-)

Kartz said...

Keep writing more and more. I love reading your blog.

ItAteMyBrain said...

I too believe that everything that happens in your life happens because God wants you to learn something and later and to test if u have learnt it well.
