1500* BLOGS in 2589 Days with Lakhs of You!!!

1500th BLOG POST -->>

1500th BLOG POST 

In the world of noise, chaos and screaming, we close your eyes. We sit with a posture and chant one mantra for a long time without thinking about anything that troubles us. Mind fluctuates in the beginning but after some time, the stability becomes the regularity in the composure and we attain the energies that we never knew stayed with us since our existence on this planet. The habit of doing this is called Meditation and we never skip after getting to know its effect in our otherwise chaotic and disorganized life. The moment when we are meditating, we are in quest of nothingness in our mind so that we can hear the inner voices and nothing else. 

Similarly, 7 years ago, one day, out of my chaotic and disorganized schedule, I found little time to understand how can I share my thoughts with my friends and came to the conclusion that I will create a Blog to write my day to day events. With time and maturity, I started sharing substantial articles, reviews, self-help posts etc. The moment whenever I am writing a blog post, I am in the same state of meditation as I am away from the chaotic thoughts that generally keep interrupting my mind each second. I go into the mode of nothingness where a nice vacuum gets created in my mind out of which the stories start getting formed one after one which in turn gives birth to a new BLOG POST.

When I begun writing blogs, I didn't have any ambitions through it except a will that I would never stop what I have started and it would be remembered as the longest marathon ever run by one of the Indian Bloggers in terms of the duration and frequency of posts. It has taken me 7 years to reach to my 1500th Blog Post which is a dream for any blogger to continue writing these many articles. Being a student for 6 years and a corporate employee from last 1 year, there were challenges to take out time to update my Blog after the hectic daily routine but the quest to achieve something out of the residual life which does not even get counted in life of an average human being, I wrote this blog sometimes even at 3 AM. There have been times when I have woken up at 4 AM to write something which makes sense to the readers only when they read it first thing in the morning. I have never woke up this early for exercising, studying etc but I did it for this medium even when there are no monetary benefits out of this. It is just a passion that has never let me sleep if there have been something in my mind which was still not in a Blog Post. 

And as it is said almost everywhere right from our Holy books to motivational books to spiritual books, if you do something with all your heart, you will eventually get success or fruits from it. But the main motive should be to do something selflessly with pure honesty. I can say it for my Blog that I have never cheated or fooled my readers or any publishers/authors for whom I write. This Blog then gave me so many gifts in life that sometimes when I sit alone and think about this odyssey, I just can’t believe that a medium which got birth just for the sake of letting my friends know my update had such secrets hidden in it. There are several instances where Bloggers have mailed me to ask how to convert their Blog into something like mine so that it becomes popular and readers’ favorite. I have never been able to reply to these mails as I am still ignorant how did this Blog think of gifting me so very great moments in life that can never be forte of a common man just like I was/am. 

Today I meet celebrities not like their fan but as someone whose portal can fetch them more benefits and therefore they talk in order to request me something rather than me asking them for an autograph or selfie. I get mails from authors who are known for not replying to their fan mails and messages. I get so many great books to read from the publishers who generally don’t care about human feelings when it comes to selecting manuscript of an unknown personality. And recently, my designation at my organization got changed because of this Blog. Yes! You heard it right. Even this did happen and to my surprise, I am no more a Software Tester for which I planned for 2 years to be the one and 6 months in preparing for it. My employer incidentally went through my blog and asked me to do certain tasks that he felt someone with skill set of a Blogger can perform in the organization and changed my designation to a Business Analyst who prepares documentation after gathering client’s requirement and does all the interactions in a Software project life cycle. I still do not know the eligibility or basic requirements of this Designation but I am playing this role in an organization because of this medium. 

What more can I say about the wonders that this blog have done to my life. Even now when I look back and think if I deserve what I have gotten from this Blog, I only get a negative answer. I still do not have any target from this Blog which I can announce today and promise my readers that I shall achieve the same in next few months/years. But I am sure that my life would be changed many a times again because of this medium. If I take out the moments I have rejoiced because of this medium, my life is not even what a normal student/employee leads. It has been a big bore and worthless. Whatever little worth I have in the institutions and works that I have been associated with is because of the image and personality that this Blog makes people to create about me. Otherwise I have still seen only 1% of what learned men call “world”. 

I am in midst of several emotions that are going in my heart and mind while writing my 1500th Blog Post. The fraternity of Bloggers may not hold me as someone who has a great literary value but few people who believe in me will definitely stay with me for many years to come because they know how this medium have fledged from a teenager’s cry to self-help posts to opinions about books and movies. I will always respect my readers for giving me time to develop and they still keep reminding me about the genres that I have still not tried on my blog. I feel blessed that people who have never met me are concerned about my versatility and success. What more can a middle-class boy dream of? On this 1500th Blog Post, I would like to congratulate my readers because it is result of their patience that someday I would fulfill their requirement by writing a perfect Blog Post which they have been waiting for since joining the medium. Please stay by me as this 15th Century is not the end but just another landmark which have gotten achieved because of the chemistry that you and I share. And I will leave saying what I always say, “Your Support is My Success”.




1499th BLOG POST -->>

Life is a continuous process which never stops and you never get a break from it. Meditation allows you to take a little break from the chaos of life but still, there is no run away from life. Life is one of the serious issues of our existence yet many of us end up avoiding it until it becomes a mean of survival for us. Living should never get converted to surviving ever. Your living style should only get mooted to super-living and mega-living levels. There are many ways and lifestyle that leads you to that position where minute details aren't interrupting you from living a happy life but reaching to that stage is in itself a big parameter to activate for yourself. We know the methods and ways out there but we are not ready to take the path. The conscious does not allow us to leave our premises and go out the barriers which kept us safe all this while. And because of which we keep getting submerged in our past and not even the present. 

When I say past, it is not the good ones but the bad ones indeed. No one likes remembering good things that one achieved or lived in previous years of life but everyone remembers only the seconds that caused them pain. Many people end up living their whole life cursing that shit which took place with them. I hear so many friends asking about why that particular thing happened with them at that course of life when everything was great with them. They have this assumption that if that particular event would not have happened with them that successful streak of their life would have still continued even after so many years and that particular unfortunate event took away the positive flow in which they were moving ahead.

Many people are still living in quest to receive answers for those events that went wrong and are not out of it even when great opportunities are lying around them. A person who was expelled from the last job due to politics isn't concentrating in the new job at MNC which can lead him to the places because he is still stuck in the question about what his boss must be thinking about him then and right now. A student who failed in one difficult subject last semester isn't concentrating on 5 easy subjects of this semester because he is still in depression about why examiner passed another friend of his and not him even when he wrote better answers with explanations. A lover is still thinking about his previous partner about what led him/her to leave him/her rather than concentrating and giving the best to the current relationship where the partner is ready to die for him/her. 

Why are we always in the quest to get answers of the things that is already a part of our past? Why don't we believe that it was a mystery which will remain unsolved and we shouldn't waste our time in analyzing what happened because of which uneventful happenings took place? It's time to stop searching answers for the soul because even soul is wanting to get liberation from our stale and dead thoughts. It wants to get absorbed in these new struggles of life and wants to get passed or failed in it to grow our personality from what it is today. Let past remain in past and let's not dig it again and again to hurt ourselves more and limit the pleasures that life is awaiting to give us. Throw all those stuffs, photographs, things etc that haunts you again and again and takes you back to your life that is nowhere close to today and things that can affect your today. Some questions are not to be answered but to be forgotten to get answers of many unasked questions. :-)

Y Films' Sex chat with Pappu & Papa: Sex education in style!!! ***½

1498th BLOG POST -->>

Y Films! have made a great entry in the world of web-series with their shows- Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies Room, Man's World and now "Sex chat with Pappu & Papa". Though I won't say that it's a very out of the world stuff but it's something that's needed in today's India where ultimately, parents will have to come out of that shy world and explain their kids about sex rather than making them learn it through Internet and friends and knowing things wrong for a long time. In the first episode of this web-series, when the child asks his father about what masturbation means and father starts explaining him, as a viewer, I did feel awkward about it but with time, I understood what's actually it is conveying. 

This has been the missing element between the talks of parents and children in our country. Every time, child asks a question related to sex, parents only fool them by giving some weird answers rather than actually teaching them properly about what the "word" means. This series show it perfectly how with examples, the words can be explained to the children without actually generating awkward between both the generations. The writers- Gopal Datt and Devang Kakkad have done a wonderful job in scripting all the 5 episodes and keeping them of limited time as that's what web-series is all about. The director, Ashish Patil's work, is also good enough. 

All the casting is perfectly done and it's wonderful watching each of them in their role. Talking about the not-so-good points of the show, I would say that grandfather's interruption between the father and son's conversation only irritated the viewers rather than making them laugh and enjoy the same. Also many jokes seems to be forced which doesn't suit the flow of the good dialogues. Rest I would love to watch the 2nd season and expect writers and director to do it more perfectly next time. But still, this is one of the most refreshing and recommended web-series. I give it 3.5 stars out of 5.
