Resolutions!!!

At the beginning of this year, I had made a few resolutions. Eight of them to be exact. Lets see how I have fared on all of them…

1. Drink Water - I must've been a camel in the last birth, coz I can survive even the hottest summer days on 2-3 glasses of water! But the point is I'm human in this birth and humans need to drink water. So there...
Yay, I did well on this one! I now have at least a litre of water everyday, and at times even more… pat on your back Anks!

2. Blog More - The last year has been really slow. So I'll try and put up more posts. Complete the pending Goa travelogue and put that up (along with some awesome pics!) Watch out for this one...
Ouch, this was a bad one… even gave up blogging this year. But I have been fairly regular since my comeback… whaddaya think?

3. Complete my stories - This one has to be done. There are not one, not two but three half written stories with me right now. I gotta complete all of them! And Progati was a long long time ago!
Oops! A complete goner on this one… except for one hastily written short story, this section has been completely dry this year…. Hmmm, lemme move this to the next year’s resolution bucket! ;)

4. Try poetry again - I must admit I enjoyed writing the poems I did. Have you read them? No. Well, you can do that here, here and here. But I'll write more poetry, for sure!
Now this, I did! Mrigtrishna, Ek Mutthi Aasmaan & Uljhan were all put back to back on this blog!

5. Take care of myself - Something I tend to neglect at times....
I have been decently regular on this one… so no sweat!

6. Spend time with loved ones - Will kickstart this from end of the week!
Not bad on this one either! Given the hours and hours of traveling to work everyday!

7. Not fake smiles - My cheeks have begun to hurt doing this now. Need to stop it!!!
Yes! I did this too… No more faking smiles…! I say it as it is…

8. Do things on time - Anyone offering courses on time management???
Anyone offering courses on time management???

So there, my score is 5 / 8. Yipeeeeee Do! So Anks can keep a few promises! Now for next year’s resolutions? Nah, not this time… Am gonna take things as they come… Coz I have really begun to believe in this statement authored by yours truly

“Life has a way, of making even the best laid plans awry..... so why plan?”

What do you think ppl?

कोई नई बात नहीं है!

Blog: सच में, कोई नई बात नहीं है के Anks तुम किसीका birthday भूल जाओ... मगर फिर भी अपने प्रियजनों का birthday तो तुम कभी नही भूलीं...

क्या मैं तुम्हारे प्रियजनों में नहीं आता, जो तुम लगातार दो सालों से मेरा birthday भूल रही हो? तुमने कभी सोचा है की मैंने तुम्हारे हर मूड में, हर ख़ुशी में, हर मुश्किल में तुम्हारा साथ दिया है... तुम कई कई हफ्तों तक मुझे छोड़ कर गायब रहतीं थीं, पर मैंने चूँ तक नहीं की... तुम आधी अधूरी कहानियाँ छोड़ कर बैठ जातीं, मगर में चुप चाप इंतज़ार करता, और तुम्हारे आने पर ख़ुशी ख़ुशी तुम्हारा स्वागत करता... क्या मैंने कभी कहा के तुम इतने दिनों बाद आई हो, मैं नाराज़ हूँ, इसलिए तुम्हें log-in नहीं करने दूँगा? नहीं ना? तीन साल... तीन लंबे साल बीत गए... तुम्हारी हर ख़ुशी को, हर बात को, हर Rambling को मैंने सँभाल कर, सँजो कर रखा है... और तुम मेरा birthday भूल गयीं??? क्यूँ? आख़िर क्यूँ??


Anks: Hey ppl, thats my blog complaing that I forgot its b'day... I know, I know I shouldn't have, but u guys know me na.... I forget everyone's b'days... and if I would've wished the blog on time, it would've collapsed of shock!!! Don't u think so too??? So dear, it was just to prevent u from cranking off that I didn't wish u on time!!! :)

Its been 3 years... Gosh! Can't believe I lasted that long.... Have met a lot lot lot of ppl here on blogworld.... caught a glimpse of life in different parts of the world, different thoughts and ideologies... I never had any particular reason for starting to blog and neither do I have one to continue... That's why I took that break a while ago... But by jove, blogging sure is addictive! Coz, even when I was not updating the blog, I was blogging! Ya, I was wririting posts on my cell phone (and with T9 at that, not even qwerty!) and keeping them safe... some of my last posts have been from that pool.... actually, I still have some posts ready to be typed out and posted... will do that as soon as my lazy fingers feel like!!! :p

But you know what, the best part of blogging is undoubtedly the comments.... the different views and opinions... the experiences that you guys share, thats what makes the whole experience so much richer... thats what makes blogging really worthwhile! Thanks to all you people for reading and commenting... and the silent visitors to my blog, do leave ur footprints here.... i'd love to know you have dropped by....

While I am at thank you's, let me thank Juneli for the constant buzzes to get me back to blogging... seriously gal, if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have returned this soon... and only after I got back did I realise how much I'd been missing it!!! So thanks a million to you....

The second thanks is due to Ricky, the great... coz its only because of him that I realized now that I've missed the blog birthday!!! Thanks pal...

And to my dear sweet bloggie...

"Happy Birthday to you....
Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday...
Happy Birthday to you............................!!!"

Next year, I'll wish you on time.... I swear, errrrrrrr I promise, errrrrrrr I think, errrrrrrrr I hope, errrrrrr I pray.............


Blog: This girl will never change!!!!
And Ricky, thanks for the birthday gift.... :) I'll have Anks use it for some very special posts :)
