'Aavjo' with a smile

'Aavjo' is the Gujarati equivalent of a 'phir aaiyega' in Hindi or a polite 'do return' in English. It is said at the time of parting or bidding goodbye.

It is time for this blog to take a break. (Nope, this ain't an April Fool's Joke.)

I'm not upset about anything in particular. Nor is it about this.

It is just that The Traveller needs to travel again, on a path where he might find it difficult to narrate stories. Make no mistake, I still love narrating stories; only that it is time for me to go about weaving another one.

Nor am I saying that I shall never return to the world of blogging. Just that I'm not sure whether I will, and if at all, when.

It has been an extremely satisfying journey over the last few months where I enjoyed narrating experiences as well as expressing my own doubts and fears.

This doesn't mean that I shall not be following the blogs that I so loved to read:

Abhinav Jain, whose blog I LOVE the most. At the end of every day, I would look forward to reading a new post on his blog just so that I could laugh away to glory in the dead of the night

Gosia and the absolutely glorious photographs that she takes

Sunshine, who hopefully, I will be meeting soon

Moonwalker aka fellow Martian aka the one who's going to send me chocolates from her first salary

Arpana, who deleted a post that I loved the most [ remember Arpana? :) ]

Sayesha, who writes her blogs with utmost honesty

Amit, a great sport and a fun person to interact with

Trash_u aka Saurav-ko-gussa-kyun-aata-hai. Although this fellow doesn't update his blogs often enough, he's good


Anant, a guy who I respect because he speaks his heart

Nitin, the (almost) ex-IIT dude, now ITC dude and the most trusted friend ever who's just started blogging. Dekhte hain banda kitne din tak naukri or blog dono sambhalta hai ;)

Anna who's become a good friend and has recently started blogging again

and last, but not the least 'her'.
