Have you ever wondered that how time passes things which were alien and unknown become very important and the known and important become faint memories. I am posting this a bit late but then you are not a blogger unless you make the excuse “I so wanted to write this some days back but I couldn’t really find the time”.
Now that I am done with pleasantries excuses let me get to the important stuff. 16th November is an important date for me; its my mom’s birthday. But in addition to that it also marks the day in year 2005 when I wrote my first blog post. I don’t think I should provide the link here lest all you folks desert my blog and go. So this week on Tuesday I completed 5 glorious years of blogging; around 290 posts I have managed to clock an average of more than a post a week (special thanks to two NaBloPoMo I undertook).
But more than the average, the visitor count, hits, and subscriber there is one more thing which has kept me at blogging; the satisfaction of writing something, utilizing myself in a way that I really enjoy. Someone tweeted some days back on my timeline (I don’t remember who, so couldn’t link to the tweet) which I firmly believe about blogging “The basic reason for being a blogger should be intrinsic, no matter the readership”. So here I am after 5 years wishing a little space in the virtual world I created for myself a very Happy Birthday.

I wish that you keep adding the flavor and aroma to every one’s life, many more Ginger & Cardamom for the tea of life.
Coming back to November 16th, another important even happened; the book Urban Shots, where my story was published was finally launched on this day at Keps Corner Crosswords in Mumbai. So for the record I am a published author now. If you want to buy the book, it is available here.
