The Week it was

Okay I am back again pretty soon as I had promised in my previous post. Still I don't have any idea what I would write today but I had begin and intend to complete this post in an hour only.

Yeah so I have got some clue what I could write for this post. I will discuss how this week had been for me and what I did.

As I work in Noida and live in South Delhi I have to cover huge distance daily and it took me around minimum of two and a half hours to cover one direction journey. From last one and a half years me and my Colleague friend Amit are covering this strenuous journey day in and day out, a large part of my day is spent in traveling. I can not afford a car so I have to use Public transport which consists of travelling by Bus, #delhimetro, Auto and then a km of walk to reach my Office. Last week I came to know of a different path and I have been using it and results are very good two and a half hours journey is now reduced to two hours only. Having said this journey now consists of paddy fields too crossing them my Office suddenly emerges which feels good. So all in all minimum of 1hr is saved from my daily routine which I could use some where else.

Now to some very important issue the "C" button of my Office laptop has came out from its place and what has left is a rubbery inner button which is helping me to type C [ as I type this post also ] but now it has also come out of its place. Work in my Office is done through this laptop only and believe it or not the most used button is C[ probably this is why it has came out ] , now what I can do is to go to the Service center and get it repaired which I am not in mood to go,secondly I have one backup keyboard of my Bro in Law's PC which I could use but then taking it to Office daily is not viable last remedy of which I am thinking is to use Fewi Quick[smiling] what say ? will it work ?

Now to not so very important thing, I was getting training in my Office on a new technology from last month which I always wanted to learn, I thought I would never get to work on it but one fine day a mail came to me and I was surprised to see my name in the list of trainees for that technology. From last week I had started to work on that technology and coming few days would be very challenging for me. Hoping for the best.

Oh yeah India and Pakistan celebrated their Independence day this week and a welcome holiday after so many months too for us. So many freedom fighters fought for our freedom[5 words starting from F in this sentence wow !!] we must surely spare a thought for them every now and then as we get time. I wrote Pakistan in the first sentence, don't know why but I am very obsessed with Pakistan and things related to it. What was nice to see on Facebook and twitter this Independence day was Indians greeting Pakistanis on their Independence day and vice versa. I had always believed to prosper we both countries should move ahead together, hopes others have this feeling too.

Tomorrow I'll be going to my hometown Meerut [bad thing >> have to wake early morning]. As I finish this post I am still struggling with this worn out button C  :( ,Indian Idol is coming on TV to which I am not giving much attention. Okay I must take leave hoping to return soon with some productive and nice post :)

Back to Blogging

So after quite a long time I am here again and writing, I know there are some people who missed my blogging a bit and so had I. About a month back I had jolted down a post on my Blog but didn't know what happened I left it in between[still pending in draft]. Those who know something about blogging would agree with me that its a difficult job, after a hard labored day in Office all you want to do is relax, spend some time with family and watch TV a bit. But then there are many persistent and regular bloggers too who no matter what happens do Blog and take it very seriously.

Personally I like writing and sharing my thoughts with you people but as I am not an organized person by nature it feels cumbersome to me to place pictures and make post aesthetic. As I visit many blogs daily most are very narrative,informative  with nice pictures and tight grammar and they look nice too but this is the only thing which keeps be back from writing. I have not seen much blogs with text only. There is a  blog of a Pakistani Medical intern Abdul Majeed who on contrary have mostly text only posts and I like it a lot to read his thoughts.As it takes lot of time to organize posts with Pictures so from future what I would do is follow him and it will help me come back to blogging and I my purpose of blogging will also be fulfilled. Also an interesting fact about Abdul Majeed is that he is one of very few Pakistanis who is Vegetarian[ Yes do visit his Blog ] .

But then it does not mean I will not post any pictures , I would but only whenever needed. About three hours daily I spend my time in #delhimetro and I have a so called smartphone too which could also help me in writing short posts, if any thing comes to my mind at that moment I would like to share that with you there only.

Now what I would do today is to tell you about 3 Blogs which are very close to me, if I am free and want to read something nice I move towards them. 

First one is The Delhi Walla . If you'd ask me about the best city on this Planet I would say Delhi[though I have not visited many other cities]. Eversince in 1992 when we first moved here and then again last year I had closely observed it, there is something in it which makes it apart from others. One fine day I sat and started searching about the best Blog on Delhi and it does not took much time and I landed on this Blog. The writer Mayank Austen Soofi [ what a name to start with ] describes Delhi as City of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya and Arundhati Roy. This blog contains the spirit of Delhi, you would fell in love with the writing style of Mayank. It has helped me to visit and know many places in Delhi which without it I would have never visited.

Second Blog that comes to my mind is Final Transit . Now this is a world Blog I would say written by an Indian Priyank Thatte who resides in Canada. He is a wanderer who after working some months would collect all his money and would leave to travel a particular country. When he writes he would write extensively with each and every detail from planning to food to travel and to everything. He would prepare about the country he is visiting for eg when  he visited Russia before he landed there he already mastered Russian language.

Lastly there is another travel Blog which over the years by hard work of the author had became one of India's most successful blog. I am talking about My Yatra Diary . Its a blog which would virtually make you visit to most of the holy places in India. Author Arti [ Fellow Blogger ] who is gifted with beautiful writing heart will make you stick to her post until you finish it. She would add many informative things about the place she is narrating about and would describe in such a manner that you would feel you are actually present there. Recently because of her writing she got a Chance to visit Japan and I am eagerly waiting for her posts about it[she already has started posting about it] . Incidentally she is also one of the reason behind my Blogging,she would persistently come on my Blog and will urge me to write to which I am very thankful to her and I feel very honored to have such a decorated  visitor on my Blog.
