bye bye 2009, welcome 2010

Wish you all a very happy new year 2010. May this new year bring lots of happiness to you and your family, and to all your loved-ones. May all your dreams come true and dream girls/boys too for those who are single :)

As I type these words I am wondering how  fast the year has passed. Like the previous year I could not believe it’s the last day of the year today.

Well, personally 2009 has been a little eventful for me. No major ‘wows’ though. But, yes, there are few things which I will remember for a long time.

For the first time I tried to write a diary and did not succeed though. I wrote for a couple of weeks and then stopped. Blame it on my laziness and lack of commitment.

I have moved to this new domain in February. To make it short, my first blog was hacked and was penalized by google as it found some ugly keywords in my site which were inserted by the hackers/spammers. I decided to move to a new domain with my name and here I am.

In May, I went to Coimbatore and stayed there for three weeks in the Isha Yoga Center. Now, don’t take me as a hardcore spiritual seeker who is after enlightenment and such stuff. At least not for now. It was more of taking a break from the monotonous daily routine and do something new. Those three weeks were few of the best days I have spent in this year. Made a couple of wonderful friends there.(Vinod ji and Sunita, I am not sure whether you ever get to read this article, but you are two of the best people I have met this year.) My idea was to spend some quality time with myself at the ashram and get rid of the confusions I had, but I must say that I accumulated more confusion at the end of three weeks than when I arrived there.

In June, I went to Bangalore for a weekend to meet Deepak and enjoyed a lot there. Thanks Deepak! Visited few of the places in Bangalore. Bought a lot of books at Landmark.

My interest in writing had turned into almost an obsession this year. I devoured many books on writing. Started reading classics to see how the biggies of literature wrote. I tried my hand at writing some fiction too. Wrote a couple of interesting posts here for which I got a very encouraging feedback. Hope the new year inspires me to pursue this hobby more seriously and to better my writing.

If someone asks me to name the best book I have read this year, it  would be Animal Farm by George Orwell. I have become a fan of Orwell now.

I attended a classical music concert in July for the first time. It was a good experience which I will remember for a long time.

There are few other interesting things happened and I am not going to write about them now, for few of them are lil personal to make them public… and others I am not sure whether this is the right time. Keep reading my blog!!!

And there is one thing that hasn’t changed though. My status in Orkut and Facebook is still singlelol..

Coming to the new year, I do not have any major resolutions and plans. Because we can’t plan everything. But I am sure that 2010 is going to be a crucial year for me, both professionally and personally as there are enough things to sort out in life.

Thank you for reading and let me once again wish you a wonderful year ahead.

    I wish that year 2010 is more eventful for you than the last year was. And more importantly I wish you get a chance to clear a bit of that ‘accumulated confusion’. While it is no life without confusions and questions, it is also not a great life without clarity and answers. Don’t take me too serious on that! I’m not so as good at writing as yet :-)

    Your work here is inspiring. I don’t hesitate to mention that I would not have started my own site if not for the inspiration I drew from Thanks for that.

    I personally saw you evolve through your writing prowess. I know what it takes to come to this level. Keep it going.

    I sincerely look forward to reading more from you. All the very best.

      Thank you so much Bharath. It takes a lot of humility to say that my blog has inspired you to start your own blog.

      Now, your comment seriously reminds me that I have been off track in the last couple of months with my writing. I haven’t written regularly. Hope to publish something soon.

      Thanks once again for your regular reading and letting me know of my mistakes, especially with my grammar.

      Good luck with your blog. Keep writing :)
