Finally !!!!

Writing is no trouble : you just jot down ideas as they occur to you. The jotting is simplicity itself – it is the occurring which is difficult’ – Stephen Leacock

And that is what happened exactly. I write this first blog, with much effort, in terms of taking out time. & I guess at the end of it, I would need to send it to a good editor (read : Sayantani di) because I am sure it will be language wise too bad to read!
Nevertheless, I can be excused for this being my first entry! :)

So coming back to Sayantani di (sorry, but I can’t help not to use ‘di’). When I met with an accident, back in Jan, and eventually told her about it on orkut,her first question was : “so what do you the whole day? Orkutting & novels? N do you do bloggin too???”

I wasn’t much aware of ‘blogging’ till then because the blogs I had read before were mostly poems (again some orkut pals), and I am not that creative…
(So orkutting was really what I was doing to pass my time.)

Then she told me how addictive even blogging was and asked me to start one of my own. That was 24th feb… but being the lazy bum I am, I delayed it till date.
First I wasn’t sure what to name it, and then what to write about! (Though I told her that the first one would be dedicated to her!)

So, Sayantani di. Well, I haven’t known her since much time & saw her on orkut only (precisely in the Photos of ODM – IV) but I somehow felt a kind of draw.
Maybe because she is a Bengali, or more so because she is a boiddyo (that is a caste in Bengali’s, & I am the same. & Yes, I can get a little weird at such ideologies). Also we wear the same kind of frame. Lol!
We haven’t talked much, just know that she is an editor and I guess, an art lover. Now I am really looking forward to meet her.
(Btw, Sayantani di, don’t get too surprised reading the above stated facts because I never mentioned them before, but that IS what was going in my head when I scrapped you the first time.

So finally I did it!! My first blog! Now after reading it, I have a few more points –

1.I seemed to have used a lot of brackets, don’t know why!!
2.Those who reply/comment on this endeavor of mine, (PLEASE DO. :P) kindly write words to encourage me… hehe!
& lastly,

3. while I write this, there is R.D.Burman’s songs playing on my winamp. Isn’t he a genius??? (I wrote this point so that people can have ATLEAST something to comment on. Lol!!)
