Random Thoughts: on The 2nd day of 2009

It was really great to see most of you guys responding to my last post which was in Devbhasha. I just wanted to write something on the last day of 2008... there were some vague thoughts..I wanted to say a lot but was unable to express myself properly so I decided to express myself in Hindi. (I always find it really comfortable talking/writing in Hindi, which is my mother tongue and was a 100% Vishuddha Hindi Reader/Writer till I moved to Bangalore in 2004.)

Learning correct English was (and still is) a difficult task for me, I had to push (and am still pushing) myself a lot to learn to express myself in correct English (I still make stupid grammatical mistakes in my posts, most of you must be aware of it) and this blog was actually started as an attempt to write more in English and learn from the silly mistakes I make while writing (some of my friends not only read almost all the blog posts but also tell me whenever and wherever my English goes awfully awry).

Anyway learning from past mistakes and move on – Jeena Isi Kaa Naam Hai! I don’t know if I am actually learning anything or not but I am trying to learn- new things, new words, new usages everyday. Some of you blog-buddies are also instrumental in my learning as I read and try to learn a lot from your beautiful posts – Thanks Guys!!

Wish to learn more this new year...


असतो मा सद्गमय,

तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय

मृत्योर्मा अमृतंगमय .

I think communication is much more than sheer language skills.:)
kai baar bhari bhari shbdou ko dekh kar samz hee nahi aata banda rula reha hai ki hasa reha hai.:-)

@ Swati - We all are learning..isn't that great?

@ Paaro - Well I had the same difficulty, besides some of the Hindi Blog Writers write in a fashion that it becomes difficult to understand what they are trying to say..

@ Sneha - I second your thought.

@ Mama - Mia - Thanks for the kind words..trying to work on the art of communication...let's see :) Keep visiting

No big deal... I like what u write irrespective of hindi or english.

Also, I think the best language to emote is Hindi.. u have words that speak more than the words in english :)

Last post was great.

Harshita said...

Arey! Gadbad ho gayi... last nahi... last to last post was great... last toh abhi mujhey padni hain :)

chirpy-paaro said...

Hey u can easily change the publishing date ...just change the date in the options for the blog... It will appear on the date you want.. infact you can reprint a previous date blog on current date...

DUBU said...

anyway our national language is always ignored so we must, whenever we can, talk in Hindi :)

btw, checked your photolog lol :D great way to start the new year. we spent the first half of the day lazing around and went to a temple in the second half... not bad hmm! :)

Dear Alok, I fell in your trap and read your new post before this one.... hehehee....

By the way, who cares whether anyone has a command over the language. We arent runnng a literary work here. The key is to be open to learn new things, and that is what will keep us going. I should say after starting blogging about our passion, I have learnt a lot more than what I had by reading through the comics.... It's a whole new world, isn't it brother ? :)

Happy Writing.... One suggestion why don't you merge your other blog and this blog, so as to aggregate the visiting users... I always find it hard to locate which one is your main blog. :)

Other than that my favorite collections like Manga Buddha, CineBook, Raj Comics.....

you have some of my wanted list like Watchmen, Absolute Dark Knight, Mouse Guard, DC Black & White, Bone complete edition, ... man you have a collection to die for... and yours is among the widest base.



You remind a lot of me in you.... I too enjoy spending half of my long holidays and vacations in my comics collection pile. sorting and cataloging them... by love of which I actually started blogging about the passion. You have a sweet sister to assist you in your mission, for me I always have to wage a lone battle all the time :)

The top of the pic is "Need a Break"..... You are like a tiny little comic lover..... which is inside all of us....

By the way, you cannot beat me in the Art of Procastination.... I hold a Masters in that :) and be ready for a night dacoit visit .... hhehehehehee
