First things first, I am alive, and I am kicking!!! 🙂 I was completely bogged down with work and a lot of other issues. 😦 Hence the unplanned hiatus on blog. The good part was that I completed the work well in time, and could meet the deadline. 🙂
Today, I would like to share some of the posts I loved from that part of Blogsville which I visit and read regularly. It has been 1+ years since I started blogging, and I have been loving every moment of it. It has brought about a lot of changes in me as a person, and in my writing as well. I discovered some amazing writers, who are great people as well, and have been in touch with some of them. This post is a dedication to all those wonderful people – my way of saying ‘Thanks’ for all those lovely posts, which touched me, made me cry, made me laugh, and opened up new avenues of thoughts in me.
The posts that I mention here are my favourite posts, which I go over and read again and again. They strike a chord somewhere within me, and I can relate to them. I would like to read your favourite posts too. Which are the posts you have bookmarked? Which posts do you love to read time and again? Please do mention them in the comments section.
Coming to my list of favourites, here we go:
Niths: A great fun person to talk to, ( my blog sis 😛 )Niths is an excellent writer as well. Her vocabulary, her absolute love for literature and music and her deep thoughts which she translates into poetry awe me to no end. I have learnt a lot from her and had some fultoo time pass with her as well. 😀 She has the gift of making one feel extremely comfortable, and that’s one of the qualities I love in her.
Au Revoir is one of her posts that brought tears to my eyes. Brilliantly written, it is the description of a father-daughter relationship. Silence (continued here) is another superb description of something that very commonly happens in society, which we notice time and again. To trust or not to trust is about a burning social issue, which most of us see around us. This was also the first post on Niths’s blog on which I commented. This is one of her beautifully, ‘randomly’ penned down poems. This is her take on Orkut testimonials, echoing my sentiments completely. All her book reviews and movie reviews have been awesomely written too, from the heart, and deserve a mention here.
Niths, I miss your poems and your short stories. I love reading them. It’s been ages since you wrote any. We demand some action to be taken in this regard. 🙂 I am yet to dig through your archives completely, and discover more delightful posts. It’s been ages since we caught up on our vetti talks too. 😦
Priya: A veteran blogger, an awesome writer and a great person – that sums Priya up in my eyes. (My namesake 😛 ) Her passion for books, her confidence, and her sense of humour are quite evident from her blog, and I admire her for that. Of course, for her writing style as well. I love her Monday Blues posts and random rants (with a liberal dose of profundity thrown in) in particular, though all of her posts are too good. She can make something quite ordinary sound quite entertaining – like this, this and this. She confesses her love for books here, a piece I really loved, probably because I share the same sentiments. Coming to reading, all her book reviews are excellently written, and I have picked up many good books at her recommendation.
Madame, please do give us more of your prose and verse. And, your profound random rants too! 🙂
