My Centenary Post

Here I am, writing my One Hundredth Blog Post. Yeah, I repeat, this is my 100th post. Wow! Wow because I can’t believe that I have finally reached here. I remove my helmet, raise my bat and look towards heaven. Super excited today to write my 100th post. I know it was a tortoise walk but at least I didn’t give up this time. I have been waiting for this day for a long time. But when this day came, I don’t know what happened, It literally took me a lot of days, in-fact months, just to open my laptop and write on this topic. Not because I was busy, I was basically too tired to write on something. Just Imagine, I had a topic, I knew the content, yet I took months to write. Why? But Why? I keep asking myself this question. 


My 100th Post

As this post is my 100th, this post is exceptionally remarkable and extra special to me. Because I am ending this year with my 100th post. With Christmas and new year around, I like to revisit my posts. Well, As I said in my earlier post that I started with this blog almost 13 years back and as a newcomer my first post was about “Happy New Year 2009“. Oh! What a coincidence. Started with the New Year and ended with the New Year.  My last post was in October 2021, The Suspicion, Almost a gap of 2 months now. It’s really funny, when you know what to write, yet did not write about it. But these 2 months were not easy for me. Because, I had to keep my readers busy. and hence had to keep on sharing my post on social media. Well, A big thanks to all writers on twitter who followed me (main, important and necessary), who supported me and encouraged me to take part in their discussion. Well, now Since I’m a housewife and  hence I can’t match my timings with the discussion forum. But I am happy to see increasing numbers of followers on twitter. Really Big thanks to all “Writers Lift”  community. I would also like to thank LinkedIn for giving me the opportunity to create a discussion forum on their site.

Last but not the least, I want to thank all my readers, who have actually read and given genuine comments. Though not on my site, but on social media or on my face. Yes, many were positive and some were negative. But at least they were genuine. You are what keeps me going! Yeah, I will write more and more and more.

Feels really good when your work gets appreciated. Since now-a-days I write a lot, I started writing a 100 word story. You can check my momspresso blog. I enjoy writing 100 words there.

Why do I write? Because I love it and I know what and how to write. Ha Ha ! I feel relaxed after publishing my post. I feel as if I have achieved something in my life. Though not really, But yes I have achieved new readers, new followers and of course appreciation from my readers and that feeling is incredible. I have almost 70 followers on facebook, 462 followers on twitter (almost more than half are writers), 39 followers on my website and 12 email followers. I know, the count is less but I know slow and steady will win the race.

Again, I would like to thank each and every one of you who have the patience to read my piece of heart. It means a lot!  Love you all. Keep reading.

Happy Gudhi Padwa

Gudhi Padwa in London

This program was organized by Ilford Mitra Mandal in London. The program had a very good attendance with a good mix of young and elderly people. The program was kicked off by hoisting the Gudi at the hands of the senior citizens, followed by games for kids and grown-ups. The games like racing, Langadi race, three-Legged race and last but not the least Kabaddi were enjoyed a lot by the crowd. The raffles also provided valuable funds to the charity for Dr. Prakash Amtes’ project Hemalkasa . Finally the traditional snack of Wada Paav and dhokla was excellent.Read More
