My online cloud...!

A couple of years ago, my father was gifted a beautiful diary, elegant pen, a stylish time piece and the required stationary during a product launch. It was a usual practice to gift the attendees at least a diary or a pocket organizer or a timepiece. As soon as my father arrived home, I was so fascinated by such stuffs that I would grab it from him yelling - "It's mine", even before he opened the gift wrapper. I've still preserved few of the diaries I've pen down my thoughts, the feelings which I never expressed nor dared to! When I had no one to vent out my pent up emotions, I began to record them in the pages of my hidden diary. The sweet memories, the sad days and what not. My diary was my best friend because it had more patience to listen than people around me would.

At times, I would just write few incidents which were not related to me but were related to the place where we live. Whenever I scribbled such thoughts, I would ask my darling childhood friend whom I've known for the past eighteen years, Praths, to read it and let me know her opinion on it. She would read them carefully and appreciate them, suggest if they need any correction.... Well, she is the person who motivated me to start this blog. The first post of this blog is dedicated to her . :) She is also a salient reader of my blog. Even though we hardly meet these days, she narrates the incidents accurately I've expressed here!

A friend of mine once asked me--"Why do you write even the smallest thing on your blog? I would've never done it."
I replied--"If not same incidents, similar incidents happen in everyone's life. All of us must've faced it once upon a time. What's wrong in recording them?"
Who knows someday after I die, dear ones might read these golden memories and cry with joy :)

Its been three years of blogging . I've met few wonderful people through blogging. Though I haven't met many in person, I hope to meet you all one fine day :)

I started to blog to overcome the frustrations, betrayal by those whom I trusted. Those, whom I believed to be my friends, underestimated that I cannot sustain without them. But they were wrong! They are jealous of my success even now. But who cares, now they're nothing to me. The days I prayed some miracle should happen and it did happen. Hence, the name Silver lining :)

At times, I try to keep myself away from blogging, but I can't. It's not blog addiction; this blog of mine has become an integral entity of my life just the way sleep, food and money are! I'm sure most of us might re-read the archives and smile with happiness.


As far as my diary is concerned, it is resting in peace. I do write few incidents that cannot be written here..

If Anne Frank hadn't written her diary, we wouldn't have learnt the sufferings during the World War.

Happy Blogging, dear friends :)) Its a blog which accompanies during sorrow and joy, until we die :)

  2. Glad that you took to blogging. Personally I never could write down more than one entry in my diary, but seem to write a post pretty often when the mood strikes.
    I can relate to penning down events with the thought that others might have something similar if not the same incident happening. I have been asked why do you write everything, somethings should not be so out in the open - all this when I really have not even revealed all :)
    Keep blogging! :)

  11. Hi,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

    Cheers,
