Its been 5 years and one day

since I started blogging. Brought to my notice by Jaya in a comment. She says I should blog about it and here I am with nothing much to say except that I am surprised at the time that has flown past. Have seen interesting, heart-warming, complimentary, rude, lewd, downright sexist and several other categories of comments. I have written whenever I felt like ranting, sharing, informing, soul searching and whenever I felt like weaving the occasional yarns of an imaginary world into a tapestry.
To you, reading this, Thank you, for being a part of this journey.

Wow Chinmayee.. Gr8 going.. :) I sure knows how it must feel to blog and keep a blog alive for 5 yrs! Mine is like 3+ years old.. So many people started blogging along! Most fellow blogs- dead! I ve seen people losing interest half way through it!

Kudos! May the number keep growing strong! Keep blogging..

U ROCK!

Out of curiosity to know what a singer would write in her blog, I started reading your posts 2/3 years back. I feel, most of the people know you as a singer or what ever occupation you have mentioned in your profile. But apart from that I have seen a person who think lot about the society

You have done a lot of introspection and made the readers to do unknowingly, thro your post. There are few post don’t have a title, so I could not give a link…but two of the best blogs are…

In one of your old posts you have mentioned…

This day. This time. I wish that I have a child's heart. No cloaks. Foils. Nothing. Clean. Clear. Pure. I wish that I never fall into the trap of an ego. And I pray that my wish be fulfilled. Cos, I know thats all I can do. Pray. I am not about to knock of a tooth to bury it on the path of an elephant. The roads are all tarred anyway.
God ... Help.

I wish and pray that you have child’s heart always and a wonderful life to spread positive energies.

I ev been visiting ur blog for such a long time now that I cant even remem the first time I did so... To b honest I bcame a fan(instant)of this blog only after discovering that v share a passion for diff languages probably not as much as you... I hav so admired the command you hav over english and the way u construct each sentence... baik pada anda!!!

P.S-it was me and not Jaya who alerted you...now dont judge me~!!!
luck be with you...

Usually the celebs are eager to create a blog, but then their enthusiasm dies down. You are different in that lot. Keep up the spirit of blogging and music.
