7 seven years!!!!

7 years, saat saal.....I still can't believe that I've kept this place alive for 7 full years. Of course , this is not what it used to be in jawani, but still I keep on sneaking 1-2 post a month.

Best part about it , I met so many interesting people just because this blog. And irrespective of my frequency here always make a point to visit their blog DAILY!!!

**
7 years, everything has changed, or nothing has changed; I clearly remember when and how I started this place, sitting bored/idle wasting myself, in pursuit of something unknown, something which is still eluding me, something of which I still have no clue.

That anxiousness, that madness, that emptiness, that restlessness, that something something has not changed at all.
On surface things look different too, well I gained weight, lost hair; I don't smile much but I do talk these days, all that crappy small talk about weather and sports; may be I'm mixing into 'duniya' or becoming one.
Anyways, at the same time I don't count those as negatives. I call it natural erosion of myself.
Positives are aplenty, God has been kind. First and foremost is my son, it seems that life before him was a total waste.
**
Life has been a sequence of "snoozes" or "dismisses" so far or that's what we control; however what happens in the background is like a flowing river, totally unbridled , sometimes violent sometimes serene, and beautiful most of the times.

Congrats!! interesting how letting thoughts out changes us as well as sometimes reading others' too.. and I wouldn't call any time of life as a waste as long as you got something out of it or gave it something.

Keep up the good work! It's quite thought provoking.

congratulations on 7 years. Been reading you all these days. :-) The ending lines were amazing. I remember you getting married, going to the U.S and now you have a son while talking about sports and random things.

@Parth - Good to see you here; and your "n+1" theorem post keeps on haunting me now and then :-)

@Chandni - Thanks Chandni.

@Kanan - True, its mostly the two-way interactions that leads to something well within which had been eluding us. I disagree on your "any time of life" funda :-)


@Arunima - This blog was inspired from your, Pallavi and Manu's blog only; and it really feels good to be still in touch.

@Manu - Thanks Manu, I still miss your short stories on your blog. :-)

@Pallavi - Thank you, I've been reading you since your jhilmil rediff blog :-)

Congratulations on keeping your blog going for 7 years. Mine just completed four years, and at one point I had thought of abandoning it.

Meg said...

I just stumbled across your blog entry as I was looking into journaling for healing myself... I can relate to your feelings of restlessness.
Keep writing... I will follow your quest.

Cheers and all the best

Meg
