This blog is no longer being updated. Last post was “Farewell”.

So what does a person write on his blog after 2 months of no updates?
Considering my reputation and my track record regarding updates, I should be one of the most perfect candidates for answering the above question. Sadly, however, I have absolutely no clue. I could, perhaps, write about the current war on whatever-it-is-that-you-call-it-these days going on in the north-west areas of the dear motherland. Or it might just be that I could offer my intellectual insight for every crisis that our nation faces currently — from different brands of religion to numerous ways of helping those unfortunate souls who have had to flee from their homes to cursing our incomptetent, pathetic, and absolutely worthless leaders to debating whether Lay’s is halal or haram. But, as the fact remains, I don’t know jack about religion, I am as clueless as most of us who want to help the immigrants but do not who to trust, my knowledge about politics and politicians is close to nil, and I am definitely not qualified (both in the matters of religion and nutrition) to decide the eatability (if that’s a word) of Lay’s.
And that leaves me to write nothing else but nonsense, which, as you can guess, I am doing. In fact, I have been publishing nonsense here for more than 6 years now. (In all fairness, though, many good bloggers who I know have written more posts on their blogs in a single year than I have done in these 6 years. And their posts are not nonsense as well.)
Anyway, back to the question.
One might suggest that I could tell you what on earth I had been doing during these past two months. To start with, I have been bloghopping. By bloghopping, I largely mean checking my feed reader for updates. I do miss those early days of blogging where I could literally bloghop from one blog to another by clicking on hyperlinks and then marveling the creativity that was spread all over Blogistan. I still marvel, but the literal ritual of clicking and going to another blog has sort of faded. A feed reader does that for you now.
I also have been Facebooking. By Facebooking, I mean watching and “liking” videos, photos, and links posted by my Facebook friends. (I also just realized that that’s one of the lamest things I have said on my blog.)
And I have been procrastinating. By procrastinating, I mean not doing anything. You might include in it not updating this blog as well.
All right. So you might have guessed by now that I have lost my mind. I certainly have. And you might also guess that I have nothing to write about. I certainly have not. This is, as they say, an update for update’s sake. Total and complete nonsense. And I must apologize, so I apologize. For not writing anything here on Ulta Seedha, and for keeping you waiting, and for ending your wait with this piece of trash that I am writing right now.
A real update will follow soon after a short break. I promise.
