You have no idea how much I wish that I could give you an explanation of the ‘break’ I have had.
The problem is that I really don’t have any explanation. There were no beautiful things; the gharwalas had no Herculean tasks for me; I wasn’t going on any secret mission; there was nothing highly important going on. It was simply ulta seedha at its extreme. I was sitting in my room and going through the archives of this journal, and suddenly I found myself typing some lines and posting them here.
(You are forgetting me, son. I typed something too.)
That’s my sub-conscious again. It (he?) has now decided to italicise also whatever it/he writes.
Anyway, you might be wondering that how this break ended too soon. It’s quite unlike me, after all. In fact, this break is much shorter than some of the unannounced breaks I have had in the past two years.
Yep. Today Ulta Seedha celebrates its 2nd birthday.
And just like on the 1st birthday, here are some ultay seedhay facts again, about the second year:
The second year of this journal was slower. Lack of regular updates is obviously one of the reasons. To be honest, the thought of quitting blogistan often crossed my mind. But somehow I managed to go against it. And let me tell you, going against this thought would not have been possible without you.
Yes. You. The readers of this journal, who come here, actually read my random thoughts, and then care enough to comment on them. And I am such a stupid giraffe that I keep on taking ‘breaks’. (Okay fine. But you look miserable when you try to be sentimental.) I still don’t have any explanation, but I owe all of you a big note of thanks. So, thank you all. For inspiring me, for encouraging me, and for reading my ulti seedhi thoughts.
At the end of the first year, I had wondered if I would complete the second. Let’s now see if I can make it to the end of the third one.
