Goodbye 2008, Welcome 2009

When I was sitting around on my computer this year, this blog was not yet born and the world for me was different in many ways.

I have lost people in my family, gone through a few uncertain times, witnessed history in the making in this world on television, seen the world dip into a financial crisis, all different aspects of the year that I did not know will be there when I woke up on 1st January 2008.

Writing again about nothing in particular

I know I should be writing about Donatella Versace, Singapore, Blood Spatter, Gecko Tape, and Houses.

Well, these are the search items that brought in the most number of visitors in all the time the blog has been out there, and I’m sure a post incorporating as many of these as possible would hit though the roof. Maybe I should try it out, write a bizarre piece (of fiction, of course) using these words as prompts!

Writing about silence

And while this was a noisy affair before, thoughts clamoring for attention in all directions, today I find I am able to focus better. I am quiet on the inside as much as I am on the outside.

Writing about a Crying Child

He is one of the many in Mumbai today, Jews, Hindus Muslims, Christians, who are left orphaned, bereft. All because some “men” with unlimited resources, selfish motives, and black hearts put guns in the hands of boys, 17, 20, 25 years old, who smiled as they shot dozens of defenseless people, believing they were achieving “martyrdom”.
