When Do You Restart Blogging?

October 28, 2009

There are so many times you want to restart blogging, some of which include:

  • Seeing¬†at least five¬†photos of Shobha Karandlaje every evening in the local newspaper – Her cycling, running, lighting the lamp, getting on a bullock cart and several other skills are truly admirable.
  • Being the proud father of a darling daughter, whose picture was clicked by tens of cell phone camera owners, when roaming around Mysore palace during Dasara.
  • Watching cricket on TV, day and night, and realizing how much I miss this in America.
  • Completely getting frustrated by the traffic in Bangalore and cursing myself for being the ‘ohhh so sensitive’ NRI.
  • Celebrating Deepavali with fireworks after more than a decade.
  • Tracing Bendre‘s path which inspired him to write ‘mooDala maneya muttina nIrina’.
  • Getting a CD released, which has my poems, my mother’s music and the biggest contemporary singers.
  • Getting annoyed by the pathetic quality of Zee Kannada Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and especially getting irritated by immature comments from ‘judges’ such as Archana Udupa.

But, here’s the reason which finally made me write again:

  • Mother and son talking way past midnight; listening to Susan Boyle, Adam Lambert, S.Janaki, P.Susheela and others; reminiscing the old days; remembering so many old friends, wondering where they are now; talking about all the happy moments, and the not-so happy ones, and learning several new things in the process; nostalgia……

Life is beautiful…………..
