First Attempt

This is my very first attempt at starting a blog, but not my first in writing about my thoughts. The last time I did that was in the year 2000-01, when I had to study for exams. Since I hated doing that (hated the results than the exams really), I sat down with study material and prayed to God - "help me please! let me pass this exam - next one I will study for...I PROMISE!!!" Having said this little prayer and all my previous exams' experience telling me (that God does help in clearing, a.k.a. passing, these exams) I would get to writing.

It was not only writing that I did, to make my concerned parents think that I was studying. I did all sorts of things, played book cricket, wrote letters (yes, I had pen friends and also had a long distance relationship), wrote about me - that was just for my eyes...Now, amongst all this the actual act of using pen and paper - the effort of putting words to thoughts is key.

I have always been of the opinion that I can write, i.e. write in a manner that is more than writing exams. This came to me in XI-XII std, in school when I started writing for the school magazine and it also got published (some achievement for me). School was the first and the last for me to write and see it in print.

Now, I think it is worth a try to get back to writing a little. And with that - here is my blog!
