Yeah, I am back!!
Back in the blogosphere!
But, where was I??
Or what kept me away from my beloved blog?
Or how could I miss my daily dose of thoughtful insights from my fellow bloggers??
How could I spend so many days without marveling at the amazing talent, creativity and diverse thoughts in the blogosphere??
Oh, the reasons are many… (or are they the excuses??)
- The festival season…Navratras…Dusshera…Karvachauth…and the grand finale Diwali!
- The Diwali cleaning…gosh, how much clutter I had to banish from my home this time!!
- Kid’s CCE III (Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation…in short my exams!!)
- Then our baby’s school vacations…which topsy-turvies my schedule!
- Guests…Navratras and holidays attract a lot of Vaishno Devi Mata’s darshan!
- Shopping…my favorite activity.
- A new addiction…Farmville at Facebook! I need some more neighbors! (Please add me as your neighbor!!)
- Parties and get-togethers. This festive season, our evenings were busier than a Page 3 socialite! (Imagine at a place like Jammu!!)
- May be a bit of writer’s block! Actually, didn’t use the grey cells at all in this direction!!
Anyways, it’s high time and it’s time to get back to work!!
So back I am!
To start with on my blog and soon on all your blogs!!
Can’t wait to meet you all again!!

October 22, 2009 11:25 am|
Wonderful! Welcome back… and its such a big relief!
We… meaning those of us… who have become so accustomed to reading a-post-a-day from you, were feeling the ‘withdrawl symptoms’ already 😉
October 22, 2009 11:50 am|
Strange!!! But it was only a week that you had last posted …and I guess that’s a normal break you take to dish out a new well turn out post (like this)!
So were you really missing from blogosphere? Going by the comments it seems you are right.
I was wondering how my readers (if there are any left) would react …they would like to crucify me if I return back to my blog! ….I AM NOT WRITING FOR ALMOST A YEAR NOW …but am afraid to return to the angst of the readers.
Any gutsy suggestions?
October 22, 2009 12:05 pm|
Your posts were being missed.Hope to read more of you in the coming week onwards.
October 22, 2009 12:16 pm|
Back with a bang eh?
Now, Visit my profile, Something is waiting for you 🙂
October 22, 2009 12:44 pm|
@ Roshmi Sinha : Hi Roshmi! Good to see you! 🙂
OMG!! I must let my grey cells work overtime and let my fingers dance furiously on the key board to reduce the intensity of the withdrawal symptoms!! 😀
@ Ashutosh : Hello Ashutosh! I can understand your predicament. 🙂
But, you see, we are a gang of ‘addicted’ bloggers, who have this urge to express not only on their blog frequently, but also on ALL their fellow blogger’s blogs!
So going by that standard, not doing this for a WEEK or more is a serious aberration!!
Hence this post and these comments!!
And you write so well, so you must return back to your blog!! I am sure, your old readers as well as new ones would love to savor your expression!! So, get going and start blogging!!
All the best and Cheers!! 🙂
@ BK Chowla: Hello Mr. Chowla. Good to see you here!!
Yup, will try to do my bestest!! 🙂
