1200* BLOGS in 2045 Days with Lakhs of You!!!

1200th BLOG POST -->>

1200th BLOG POST 

     Once again the train goes into the same tunnel that creates nostalgia. Once again it turns towards the path that makes me remember 11 previous occasions when I saw the same greenery throwing pleasant ambiance all over me and others associated. Once again the destination has been touched successfully though a bit late this time. It's a great pleasure finding this portal reach its 1200th Blog Post after almost 2045 days. The current rate of blogging has dropped down to 1 post every 1.70 days. Somewhere my heart says that this is going to drop more in coming months but a passionate writer within me says that I am about to shock these statistics. Haha! Well, I am glad that my readers i.e. my co-passengers stayed with me and didn't leave me alone in this journey where reaching the destination is worth only if you have your buddies and readers along with you. I thank you all from bottom of my heart for always being with this space whenever it has been possible for you.

           There could not have been a better day than Holi to complete my 1200th Blog Post. I wish you all a colorful Holi and I hope your life will always remain joyful and playful like this festival. I am just done watching India defeating West Indies and thus, cementing its spot in the Quarter Finals. Any better day to schedule such a memorable event? :-) Writing blog has been a wonderful experience and I have always continued it even when there has been ups and down in my personal life. The way it makes me forget all the unpleasant experiences and march towards expressing the positivism I have somewhere in my subconscious mind gives a sense of spirituality and make me feel better about myself. Any interaction that I have with my readers allows me to believe that there are few souls who would be affected if I cease following my passion. 

            I have always seen great comments under the blog posts of my blogger friends. But when I open my blogging email ID and I find so many mixed reviews on my work, I somewhere feel better. I have stopped moderating comments as I find happiness in reading such comments and keeping it with myself. I paste the ones which ignites something within me in a Word file and read it whenever I start feeling uselessness about my existence. I imagine my life without Blog and the few readers I have generated through it sometimes. I only find myself depressed, sad, alone, lazy and purposeless. I find myself among one of those students who waste all their productive years in surfing Facebook, reading tweets, chatting on Whatsapp and clicking selfies for Instagram. And that's so intolerable to me! Hence, a desire to take this blog towards the last breathe of mine gets triggered again.

          Readers often complain about how I have moved more towards book and movie reviewing and less towards writing about the topics they loved reading. I understand the irritation. But I had changed my purpose of blogging the day I found the kind of knowledge and life books give to me. I wanted to tell as many people as possible about the benefits of reading and therefore I started speaking about the books I read so that people would pick the ones of their taste. Therefore, the story of book reviewing came into the picture and the overview of Blog changed. But even I have started feeling that it's a long time now. It's almost more than 250 books I have reviewed and I love the way authors, publishers, bloggers, book reviewers and readers appreciate them. Now I feel I should come back to what I loved- writing general topics, fictions and my opinions on the topics I feel matters for the people of my age along with the book reviews. 

         For last 2-3 centuries, the passion of reading beat the passion of writing in me. Somewhere I also started believing that I need to read a more to write better than before. And I think it's a long time and I should begin writing again to grab your criticisms and improve more. I had great ideas in my mind to write time and again but I controlled from writing them as I felt there wasn't much impact in those write-ups I was planning to scribble. I am still unsure about whatever I have planned to write in future but I want to get back to what made general surfers become my regular readers. Somewhere I am disappointing you along with me. And I can't afford to cheat my readers who joined me for something and are getting a totally opposite view of what I promised to deliver. It's time for some revolutions here too like it happened in Delhi few weeks ago. :-) 

          It's 2045th Day i.e. more than 5 and a half years of running this space. The last century has taken more than 250 days and I am somewhere guilty about the same. The track through which personal life was struggling was hard to change and connect with my writing soul. A disturbed mind can only result in disturbed thoughts and thus clueless writings. Hence, I purposely took time to get myself back properly. Finally, the jinx is broken and I have managed to reach the much postponed 1200th post. From here, I will look towards the next landmark positively and will like to reach it with flying colors. I was very ashamed of bringing my blog to such level hence like every time, I didn't invite people on Facebook to come and read my 1200th post as I want this to pass like just another blog post as I am expecting remarkable changes in my blogging style in near future. Let's see if I would be able to execute the same or not. 

         Once again, I bow and thank each one of you reading this post. Because the ones reading this are truly the best readers I have because it's the hardest time in my Blogging journey. And we have often heard, the ones who stays with us in bad times are the ones we should always keep near us. I respect every reader I have and I swear I always promise myself to never cheat you because I have a portal which can be paid for doing stuffs you and I would not be believing in. I manage to avoid such offers and persist this affair to be pure and true like it always was. There's a bad side in everyone like even Virat Kohli has but I try not to affect my blogging due to it like even he doesn't let his batting get affected. You must have seen how hard I have tried to compare myself with him that I have made a fool out of myself in the end of this post. Haha! But that's the fun in talking on my blog as there's no limitations and formalities. Thanks for giving me this liberty. Love you all!

 Marching ahead towards next century..

Congratulation! This has been a remarkable journey for you, no doubt. But your readers have been equally thrilled to go through your blogs......I, for example, become excited whenever I see a ARB...blog alert in my inbox. Then it click the link and become curious after reading the post title.....

I remember the initial days of your blogging....the way you have improved in your writing skills is inspiring....you have touched nearly every topic, commented on films and reviewed books so sincerely...hats off to that! Sometimes when I cannot decide which movie to see, I automatically wait for your review and then decide :)

Thanks for being there for us. If it weren't for your blogs, life would be a bit dull :) :)
