Living amidst the prevailing culture of lies and half truths, should one ignore celebrating small victories here and there?
In this context friends, let me share with you the joy of attaining the first milestone of my blogging journey: the number ten thousand page views. The excitement and thrill of a mother, when her child takes the first step unaided or utters the first word is adorably documented in countless stories. Some what similar exuberance and childlike swing in my heart, I felt at this humble success. Howsoever time it took to cross the first hurdle, perhaps because of my poor social networking skills, it is still a win !
Who are the people instrumental in bestowing this joy? Of course my beloved readers spread all over the globe. Thank you so much for hitting my blog pages and perusing the gamut of my life’s experiences. Your support enthused me to carry on with my efforts at recounting the layers of my impressions of our sojourn in this universe.
Our lives are short no doubt, but imagine the multifarious challenges which crop up every day. We’ve to find meaning in the continuous struggle of our lives and try to either accept or solve unpleasant situations. We ought to learn to be happy while wallowing in the myriad fears and doubts enveloping us. For this, we’ve to be doers, and action oriented. Wasting precious time is a sin. We can’t postpone enjoying our small victories on some future date. Today is real. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow does not hold any certainty. Hence I realized that I must celebrate this sweet little success and ask for your blessings and your kindness. I pray to God to endow me with steadfast will power to write authentically and impart immense pleasure.
I have been fortunate to meet in the cyber space so many intelligent, charming and genuinely helpful co-writers, whose caliber in the craft is awesome and profoundly inspiring. I’m grateful to them for guiding me in the process of writing, I feel passionate about.
Can any one deny the fact that creator of any art form pines for applause? Recent example of Kamal Hassan articulating similar sentiments in the wake of his film’s release hitting a road block in his own state comes to mind. We can empathise with him and feel his pain. In this longing all of us are alike. All of us suffer from vulnerabilities. That is what makes us human. We wish to be noticed and crave good words to be spoken about, even our imperfect product. The generous gesture bears results. Makes the artist to work harder to polish his craft and give joy. It is like to be there for others who need our support.
I’m indebted to my co- bloggers on the indiblogging net work for enriching me intellectually and stimulating my thinking skills with their wonderful contributions. I too fill up a tiny space in this ocean of knowledge which is amazingly profound and colourful. What a grand opportunity to be among such bright young people who, while doing jobs, raising families and discharging umpteen numbers of duties, find time to present such beautiful creations!You’re real management gurus!
The astounding diversity of contributions reflects the gushing talent proliferating around us. Nurtured as it is spontaneously by the influence of great philosophical treatises which we have inherited and which enshrine in their sacred pages the wisdom of centuries of our civilization.
Young and old have their footfalls in this ever growing space, for expressing the distillation of enlightening moments of their lives.
I traverse the creative path here in the company of wonderful fellow bloggers. From technology freaks, gizmo geeks, travel enthusiasts, master chefs, gardening lovers and pungent humorists to those with magic eyes who lock up marvelous images for us, to those who put across deeply evocative poetic compositions, awakening in us the mysterious muses of our finer sentiments which run parallel in our lives. Then there are the blog posts which showcase mesmerizing canvas of personal literary collages which stun, stir, inspire, educate and jolt the stifling stereotypes.
Well here I'm !!!
