On two years of blogging and appreciation!

I’m happy. Feeling content. My blog turns two years old this month. For me it’s an achievement as I was very apprehensive about starting a blog. I have never thought that I could ever write 381 posts on my blog. But thanks to my brother Nilabh, who encouraged or literally dragged me to this interesting world and I’m glad. (I would like to congratulate my brother as he is going to be a published author as his debut novel ‘Swayamwar’ is going to release very soon. It’s a mythological novel, based on ‘The Mahabharata’. If you like Hindi and Mythological book, I’m sure you’re going to like it as it’s an interesting theme and Nilabh is a very good writer.)

Okay, back to my blog. It’s a very-very special space for me. It helped me to unlock my imagination and thoughts. I met some really nice bloggers. It feels great when my online friends appreciate my writing through their nice comments. When they support my blog by joining this site. I truly thank all of them. Appreciation really means a lot. It inspires. It encourages.

Here I am to say a very-very SPECIAL THANKS to NEHA from Neha’s Journal and JASKIRAN from Footnotes as they nominated me for two awards.
