Welcome 2012... !!

It is the first morning of the new year. In fact, half the day has already past and we are 365.5 days away from the next new year :) And the day is no different from yesterday, as I had mentioned in my earlier post. Sometimes, I find the New Year celebrations a bit over the top. I mean what is so different and special about the 1st of January. Do we suddenly experience a sea-change in us ? Do people suddenly appear different ? What is it about this date that we suddenly become conscious of all the sins that we have been doing in the past ? But then, as they say, if you want to turn over a new leaf (albeit briefly), there has to be a starting point. And therefore, I guess, it does not matter if that starting point is either someone's birthday or a randomly picked date from the calendar like the 1st of January.

So here am I, with this new blog. As I indicated earlier, this is just a cosmetic change designed to shadow my inherent laziness all throughout last year as far as blogging went. Just six odd posts in the last year was way below par. Anyways, it is time now to look towards the future. One change that would have been immediately noticed is that the title of the blog has now expanded to 'Thoughts along the way... '. Which way, you might ask ? Well, the answer is : I do not know. But what I do know is that I am along a journey, a path that takes me to a destination that I am still not sure of. I will get there one day, of this I am sure of. And this blog is just an opening for all that I think of during this journey. In fact, come to think of it, we all are making or individual journeys. 'Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana...' as Kishore Kumar famously said. Or, a couple of years later, in a mood considerably more melancholy, Kishore Da went 'Zindagi Ke Safar Main Gujar Jaate Ho Makaam..'. The concept of life as a journey has been celebrated since time immemorial. And it is this concept that I seek to discover. To walk along the journey of life, to take the rough with the smooth and to finally keep improving through all that, is what we should all look for.

But thats about it for the gyaan or, more realistic, a manaic typing of thoughts that suddenly shot up in my mind over the past 10 minutes or so. In fact, I have resolved to write most of my posts in not more than 30 minutes. Just allow the thoughts to flow. Of course, the end result might be that you, dear reader, is subjected to quite some thrash. But then, I think, it is worth experimenting.

So till my first real post...


  1. Congratulations and hope to read interesting posts. Try wordpress instead of blogspot. I feel that it offers better options.


  2. Thanks Sir !!.. Yes, I had evaluated WordPress as well, in fact, have made a similar sounding blog there too :).. lets see which one I end up using.
