This post is a continuation from here.
Thanks, people, for the links to your favourite posts in response to my question. I am yet to go through them. 😦
In continuation of my list of favourite posts, I would like to talk about two other bloggers today.
Harish: The Mask, Harish, has been writing for more than 3 years now. He is an awesome writer, and a great person and friend too. His specialisation in writing is romance – pure, beautiful, heart-touching romance. Nevertheless, he writes other stuff like comedy and reviews just as well. I have been reading his blog for almost a year now, and his posts have never failed to amaze me. I always end up with ‘Awwwwwww…’ or a 😦 expression at the end of a post of his. He has a wonderful gift of seeing the beauty of ordinary day-to-day things and translating it into words (and the gift of developing super-cool punch lines too 🙂 ). His posts almost always have that twist at the end, that I call ‘the Harish-factor’. 🙂
I loved this and this – hardcore romance. 🙂 I could completely relate to this, and had tears in my eyes when I read it.This, this and this are a few beautifully written posts, that left me feeling a tad sad. This is a great one about work and life, again something I could relate to easily. This and this are two more great posts, which hold a special place in my heart.
I still remember the day when I read this post of his in office, and I was laughing so hard that people all around turned around to look at me. 🙂 This post touched me greatly, and it was the first post I read and commented on on his blog.
I am yet to dig his archives and discover more wonderful posts, but I have mentioned my most favourites here from the ones I have read. That was indeed a tough job, since each of his posts is different, and extremely good. 🙂
Thanks a lot, Harish, for being the great story-teller, friend and human being that you are. May you get out of your writer’s block pretty soon and pen down a beautiful story with a beautiful twist at the end. All the best! 🙂
Rusty Neurons: Lest you be misled by the name, let me clarify that this lady’s neurons are anything but rusty. She is another awesome writer and story-teller. I am a big, big fan of her mini-stories, what she calls two-inch tales. It amazes me as to how someone can pack so much punch and profundity into a mere four lines. Another thing that amazes me about her is the closeness with which she observes human nature and relationships and pens down the nuances beautifully in her stories. Her slightly longer stories, Weekend warps, are a class apart as well, just like her miniature ones. Selecting my favourite posts is a tough job, as in case of Harish, because each of her posts has something different, something wonderful. However, I have tried my best to find out my most-favourites.
This, this, this, this and this are some of her longer stories that had me captivated. This is one of her long stories that saddened me a bit, but which I loved nevertheless. Coming to my favourite two-inch tales, they are – this, this, this, this, this, and this.
Thanks, Rusty, for being the wonderful writer that you are. Do write more of your stories. I absolutely adore them. Thanks also for your encouraging comments on my blog. It means a lot to me. 🙂
