It has been more than a year, since I have written a thing on my blog. A blog that once upon a time I used to consider my hide-out, jahan mein cheekh bhi leti thi aur awaz bhi nahin hoti thi (Piyush Mishra's quote). But strangely, since I have stopped writing- with time there are too many pent-up things I have accumulated.
But today I am not in a mood to complain, I am just here to tell that what an absolutely amazing platform I had and how brutally I ignored it in these last few years. Blogosphere not only gave me some very good memories but most importantly a direction to my aimless life.
It all started with short stories, which led to few rhyming words and then I started writing down what I felt, it was more like talking to myself but in a way that makes it look less crazy.
In the meantime some really great projects came my way. I became one of the few lucky ones to win the penguin short story contest following by four other nation-wide contests. My short stories were turning into films. Everything seemed to be like a fairy tale story. Things were just perfect. Please don't think I gloating, no I am not. I am just like one of those crazy fools who likes to believe what they write and not what they think.
But if you think closely, what good is a road without few speed breakers, eh? Soon life took over cutting every thread of idealism and happily-ever-after with blunt reality. People came and people left, sometimes consciously, sometimes they just slowly and steadily drifted apart.
Was the change painful? Yes. Would I do things differently? No, Maybe.
I do know there are people who enjoy reading what I write and I am also well aware there are more than few who don't. But one thing is for sure I hope to blog more often at least twice or thrice in a week, not for anybody, just for my sanity. Dear readers, I hope you enjoy this bumpy yet interesting ride.
