Lets Not Say Farewell

oh yes, i was super busy till date.. i had this PG entrance thing yesterday, but that was not the reason why i was away.. falling ill has been a routine in my life for, say 3 years, and this time around it gave me crap ! and its all better now. and again, thats not the exact reason what kept me away. on a serious note, ever since my exams began, this void came to existance. i did not have any thing to write on and i never wanted, nor do i want now, to pen down something for the sake of it. thats not what i do. i write when i feel like, what my heart tells me to.. and life is much like a still photograph with nothing new happening and sticking to same routines.

and yes, i recently completed a mile stone for the second time :P +150 posts, and this time around, it really took time :D and like almost everyone does, i celebrated it with a series of guest posts, done by those bloggers who i read and enjoy, and they did their part, and must say, bring up the guest posts authors atleast kept this blog running !

blogging, i heard this term years back, the internet savvy me could resist the tempatation to try it.. so way back in 2005, i penned down my first post in a so called blog, and it was such an innocent me blogging, without knowing what exactly the terms blog and blogging meant. and then, i just forgot about all these and got attracted and then ofcourse addicted to another media for students and that addiction lived for 2 years.. then began my college life, and man, the initial days sucked, so did the final days, lets not mention it now. so thus being bored and jobless i started this blog titled "Quilling In Blood" and then i switched to "Obnoxious Mind" and then to this one "The Graveyard Of My Own Thoughts".

Initially i just wrote for the sake of it, but later it changed and i started writing only when i felt like writing, and what i felt like writing, and it felt awesome. there is thing that i said when i started this blog, that i would rather be happy if i have 5 followers and 5 responses than 50 followers and 3 responses..the reason ofcourse is, when i write, its primarily for myself and then only i share with those who follow me, and much important than that, i dont really like to be tagged as "one who writes".. i seriously cant do that.. i just pen down my thoughts.. but now, am really glad that these people who follow me like what i pen down..

Guest Posts have always been an attraction in every blogs.. yes, am glad i had guest authors to write for me here.. all it began with one post from Nyx, aka Aarthi.. i started following her soon after one comment in TWL annoyed me, and she being the admin had to clarify that, and well, along with her i met Stephen, another admin, clarifying the same.. what i like about Nyxs posts it, not always, but at times, she pens down some real thoughts on life, and boy i so like that and can relate!

the second guest to appear here was my own virtual sister Slow Processor aka Hasna! i dont remember when i first met her or when she met me, but its some time that she is in my social contact list. i like the way she pens down poems.. her lines, often has something that can make me think, something deep and dark hidden in it, and i love the freedom it gives me, like i can interpret it in any way that i want, and yes, she ofcourse agrees all the time :)

and the came this good looking girl form Bangladesh, Shomoita aka Lopa, again, my virtual sister, talking to her over FB & G Talk has always been fun and i love the “kiddo” word :D isn’t that right sissie? Never have i returned from her blog without a smile. Like her, its also very jovial :P
next to do the GP was calvin or sreehari, and man that single post recorded the maximum hits for a post in my blog, ( credits to google analytics) and on a serious note, i like what he does, i mean what he writes. And you might want to check his blog out, but warn you, he writes in Malayalam ! calvin am glad you were around when i needed support and guidance, and i am even more glad to know, that you will be there ! buddies, aren’t we?

I have found my emo twin in jinju.. the way we think, we act and we live, its the same,or in her own words, d shared laughter, tears n dreams....d solidarity of xprnces, reactns n lessons learnt in common...d amazing, jaw-dropping resonance..bein able to read each other's silence n feel d unexpressd n pick up each oders vibes widout evn trying...the "i knw jus wut u mean...coz dats exactly wut i've also felt"dat keeps popping up in d mind every moment v r 2gthr..( thanks to facebook :P) and she is one gifted person.. she writes amazingly good, but lazy and thus her internet activities are limited. And to be frank, at times, i totally don’t get what she wanted to convey and take it in my way, later discuss it with her, and the ofcourse, i twist and bend my point to make her admit that what i said is write. :( cant think now, once she is done reading this, omg, pray i be safe :D

Then there is this budding talent, the gifted one, Rahul, aka eternalthinker with his out of box thinking and his et, he got all to attract you to his blog.. man you do real good work and spend time on the works you do ! the et comics are just awesome and keep them coming, and btw, bringing up the old issue, sue Vodafone zoozoos, et is original. This guy is the one behind the modification of almost all my templates, and he is really good at it, am just giving him practice and training options !

Choco and dudo are relatively new to my blogger buddies list, but they are too cool to be with :P this choco girl can give life to emotions.. i wonder why she writes so much of sad poems, but they are all so well crafted.. and choco’s blah blahs :P that is something funny about her.. she can write the sadest poem and then the next moment can come up with some blah blah blah and tweets :) girl, keep doing it, but start writing lines what makes a curve on our lips :) dudo is mr. Philosophy. Like rahuls et, dudo is shrijit’s virtual identity. Thanks to him, out group blog i-phrase is now actively running.. meeting dudo was a surprise, first in FB and then i G talk, he is the one, who is always around !

Anupama and i have a history.. from arguments to this friendship it has grown, and damn, she writes so much and i hate reading long posts, but guess what? Hers write ups are worth reading. Thanks for being there in my g talk, always available, and for often managing to cheer me up.

And finally there is leo, the most celebrated one in the blogsphere.. he is the poet ! and i love what he writes, but sad to say, i don’t understand the acros he pen down.. am more comfortable with the other type of poems and stories your pen down, and well, my addiction for templates had made him give me a name TT, and :D i love it, cant help it when it comes to templates leo :D

Thats all about the GP authors here, and i definitely want to mention K Parthasarathi, who has been the source of inspiration and one who always wanted me to come good in what ever i do, Lakshmi akka for her support, love and mails, and the responses to the buzz, Sindhu bhairavi for her comments, mails and for asking me to stop writing negative posts, Rugma, Kajal, Rakesh Vanamali, Neelima, Neethu, Divsi, Mahesh, and all of these 70 people who follow me, everyone who reads what ever crap i write, and google, for providing me this plat form to write.

This is it people, i stop writing here for now..yup, i seriously don’t have anything new to write, and i don’t want to write for the sake of writing.. but i promise, i will be back, but at the right moment ! so lets not say farewell..

So long folks, so long !

Love, Shravan.

Dear Shravan,
Good Morning!
Thanks a bunch for mentioning me in your post.
I would have fought with you right now,but you must be having a sound sleep!:)
Writing nearly 210 leeeeeeeeeeengthy posts;imagine;not an easy task!without any drafts,no plans,just straight to the new posts.:)Creativity,nah!So first the bouquet and the brickbats!
Hope u know history repeats!:)
You do always restart your reading habit;Get the spark from sincerely yours and turn into fictions!Do we complain a fiction has thousands of pages?No;still people spend money to buy book nd read!
If reading is passion more than a hobby,the length of posts should not be aproblem!:)
Anyways,I am not taking away the cheer.
Get refreshed and recharged and do come back!
You will be in my prayers.
Wishing you a wonderful future,
Sasneham,
Anupama

shravan,
what u've written smacks of sincerity.
i know u would b back soon.........the gift, or rather the 'curse' of creativity is such that it 'll never leaves its victim in peace.

This is when I should really come up to the comment form and scribble a few words, right? :)

I remember following u from that all-red themed blog to a lot of different different themes every week(ahm). And how u went from a time of pretty negative posts to posts of smiles and happiness. And how you take the long and short breaks.

Its indeed nice to look back and see how time flies and how people unknowingly get closer.
*showers good lucks upon you* ^_^

Shravan RN said...

@Dudo
Yes Mr. Philosophy :) am glad you people love reading.. but cant help quitting..

Shravan RN said...

@Anupama
Yup, i agree, writing +200 lengthyyyy posts is no easy job, and you do manage to do it quite well :) and reading habits, yes, its true, we sit and read, but thats totally a different way.. having a book in your hand gives a different feeling than reading from the screen :P and thanks for keeping me in your prayers, i hope to return back some day :)

Shravan RN said...

@Hemanth
Negative posts just come like that.. one way of shedding the negative energy for me is to write it away ;) and thats one reason, and the other reason being this the graveyard of my own thoughts
:P

Shravan RN said...

@Chocolate Lover
I hope i will be back some day.. and you are worth the mention ;)

Shravan RN said...

@Lipin
Thanks man :) and i totally agree, the gift/curse always do follow.. and lets see when i will be able to break the blocks and come back !

Shravan RN said...

@eternal thinker
Yes it indeed is time you comment ! :P templates have always been one factor that keep me dragging to them.. just cant help trying new templates and reach to perfection :) ofcourse with some added help from you :) and my post time line reflects my current state of mind and thus the array of posts in various moods ;) breaks, i have always taken, and have come back in no time, but this time around, i don’t really know when !

Shravan RN said...

@Jinju
Yes you have told me though i didn’t agree on all times :P and twin, ;)

Shravan RN said...

@Neethu
Pleasure ! i hope to return back some day.. after all this is my virtual home !

Hasna Fathima said...

I cudn't catch up with this post on time since i too was away from blogging, for the same reason..
But, I would like to say, I loved your posts & the discussions we had over some of them..
I loved your poems & I remember asking you for more but you always insisted that you will write only when you feel like doing so...
The reason for this short withdrawal is good enough but just for this season..but I expect you to come back once this season of 'nothingness' is over..
Love u a lot..
Pathu..
