As much as the story I live in and the moments that live in me are but just mine, you my fellow bloggers are the family that has stood by!
It’s a whooping one year journey and look at how warmly have I been welcomed here.
I look back to where I started and I can’t stop laughing. I was so nervous about this whole blog and being able to cope up. The only thing I remember is telling myself that I can and I must. This however does not change the fact that I have taken innumerable breaks, been a very lazy writer and yet the love, the support has been unmatched. I am guilty of having written 92 posts (including this!) and I don’t really know if I am as much worthy of what this family has blessed me with.
You’ve showered me with compliments. You’ve pampered me with love. You’ve motivated me everytime my words speak out my heart. And most importantly, you’ve inspired me for this one year journey that I never thought I could even start.
By far, this is the best blogging achievement for me. And apart from this, I have been blessed with a decent number of people reading the blog, commenting, viewing and most importantly, staying by. It’s not often that a writer runs out of words but I am at this moment at a short of words to thank and to express what I feel about this magnificent year. Although, I guess that explains, my emotions attached to the blog and each one of you.
I’ve always believed the journey is the best part, and what better than this marvelous journey till now!
Thank you for stopping by, appreciating, celebrating and for staying.
Thank you for being such an important part of my story.
P.S.This is a dedicated piece of writing to anybody who realizes he/she is not doing a favor just because he/she has let their female acquaintances live a life they deserve. We need to get out of this loop where we literally beg for something which is a basic human right. The typical mindset that goes from “I have never ever differentiated between a girl or a guy” to “She is my daughter but I have raised her like my son” clearly stands to the patriarchal mindset which is willing to improve but not from the grass root level. It definitely isn’t a favor to let a lady be a lady in a man’s world. Also, why raise your daughter like a son? Why do we have different raising standards anyway?Modernization or social service are two vague terms used for letting people be. Letting us achieve our goals and pursue our dreams is not your choice, as a matter of fact, it is nobody’s decision. If I do not bother you with what you choose as your life story, I am sure you are nobody to write mine. The next time we reach out to women deprived of rights or a lady stuck up with unfulfilled ambitions, let’s just remember it is our duty and not a choice or favor to stand up for humanity cause we are nobody to decide for a fellow human being.
