And we turn five!

Five years and five readers later, I can still proudly claim that I am as passionate a blogger as I was when I started way back in 2007, on a Friday morning, getting bored at home in Kolkata, waiting to begin the B school journey.

A lot has changed in the past few years: from a young, slightly naïve and temperamentally unstable girl, I have become older, more naïve and more temperamentally unstable…

I have been to B school, figured out it was a completely useless waste of time (except Corporate Communications), failed a few finance papers, drank a gallon of alcohol and made some really good friends…

I have also worked in two world-renowned MNCs, done well for myself, fought religiously with the bosses, started a new team, drank a gallon of alcohol and made some really good friends…

Having worked for the aforementioned world-renowned MNCs, I have figured out that I am not made for Corporate World and I have continued to chase my passion for writing, hitting the wall each time…

I have gone out with people casually and not-so-casually, fallen in love and fallen out of love, got stuck in the moment, moved out and moved on…

I have changed houses frequently, lived with the best of friends and then learnt to live alone, take care of myself and embrace the loneliness…

I have also helped India win the cricket World Cup…

But while I was doing all of this, I have continued to cherish the longest lasting relationship of my life: with this blog!

Happy 5th anniversary

@You - Yes I know. I just cant write till the time I really have a line of thought ... And since usually and invariably I have thousands of parallel thoughts running within, I just cant start off ... :-)

For 5 years of light-hearted, yet thought provoking writing, for 5 years of making your readers (may their number ever increase!) laugh, smile and think that someone out there knows how they feel, for 5 years of never giving up on your passion through all the ups and downs in your life - cheers girl! You make us all so proud! Here's to many more years of wonderful writing!

Oh boy, all I can think of is how different life will be in the next five years. It's almost scary. But I know for a fact that this brick in the wall stay. Knowing that, gives me comfort...somewhat like knowing, that a friend is only a phone call away.

Congratulations!!!
