Happy Birthday

Exactly a year back on this day Cerebral Proclivity i.e. this blog was born. When I started out as usual I was damn enthusiastic. I had predicted that by the end of the year I would have posted at least 150 posts. Personal, academic, poetry etc. but as usual yeh ho na saka. As usual there were time constraints or sometimes I was plane bored. I am very lazy you see. There have been hundreds of thoughts that had come to my mind, which I had promised myself to blog. But ennui took the better of me. Heck, I don’t even complete the short stories and plays that I undertake most of times. But then that’s me. I get bored too fast. Well it’s not a virtue worth boasting about. Lets come back to the blog…yeah so…this was my first post. Arrival. Around a fortnight before I started my own blog I discovered (as in for myself) what blogging is all about. One day as I was googling for some info and I hit upon a Malaysian girl’s blog. As I went through her posts I was intrigued. I found this ‘blogging’ phenomenon rather interesting. Soon after that I went through a myriad other blogs. I used to frequent livejournal a lot then. Those days the blogs that I regularly visited were – Minnie’s blog, Anupma, Saira, Vulturo. Eventually Minnie made her blog ‘friends only’ and I had never commented on her blog. Although her’s was the only blog of which I had read each and every post, from the past archives of almost 4 odd years. I used to have this black template for a few months. But then I changed to this more vibrant one.

I made a couple of friends too in this blogsville .Tapsi (Who has shut down her blog but we sometimes catch up over sms) Chitra is a good friend now so is Nikita.

Here are a few posts that can safely represent the life n times of my blog over the past year. Some are happening. Some are well written. Some became a battleground, where words were hurled freely as swords. Some registered the maximum response.


One of my better poems.

On Songs from the nineties.

Where the battle ensued.

Just.

I still have readers who read this post over n over again.

Nostalgia

Catharsis

Honest words.

Arguably the most read post of my blog.

Happy birthday dear bloggie it’s been a pleasure to have ya. And what better occasion to extend a warm thanx to all my dear readers (I speak as if there are thousands of them…;-)hey! but how much ever they are…they matter!)
