I will not ask why or what happened... I will not even say 'I understand' because I seriously don't!! All I will say is:
'I'm wondering....!'

Dearest friends...

Well, it ended suddenly, didn't it?

The simplest and perhaps the most practical sounding reasoning that I give for ending my blog is that I know that in the near future I wouldn't be able to devote as much time as I would like to and hence, I wouldn't be doing justice to the blog.

A more important reason is that I was beginning to find it difficult to express myself honestly on this blog. No, I don't blame my NOT being anonymous (I think it was good that I didn't remain anonymous for the purpose of this blog). It's just that the last few times that I began scribbling something, I paused for a moment and had to think what would the reaction of certain people be if they read my blog. Having to alter my thoughts and words to suit the readership is certainly not my style; however, I didn't want to create a bundle of problems either. You can say that I read the early warning signals and have, by ending this blog, avoided the truckloads of problems that would've come later.

Yes, I am going through a rough period in my personal life, not so much due to external agencies as much as the internal turmoils of conscience that you might all be very well aware of by now. :)

But, like Raam Pyari ji once reminded me, everyone goes through problems, and obviously, some people are facing problems which make mine look minuscule in comparison. ~smiles~ Advice taken, Raam Pyari ji.

Like Mini said, it is perhaps a good thing that I have now stopped blogging. I shall, of course, look back at this blog with a lot of fondness, but no, I don't have any plans of starting another blog...not even an anonymous one.

The one good thing about this is that I'll perhaps go back to writing my diary on a more regular basis now.

And yes, I'll keep in touch with you folks one way or the other. After all, I wouldn't want to lose touch with some of the SWEETEST people I've ever known. Seriously folks, you people are the BEST !! God bless.

Shekhar said...

Shekhar said...

mini: I had kinda become used to writing posts.. ~sigh~ There have been so many times I almost started blogging again, so many times I almost started a new blog... but then scars of the past are painful reminders, aren't they?

astha: ~smiles~ Well, what can I say? Welcome to the blog. :) Do honour the blog by going through the archives. Cheers.

arpana said...

hmmm , now-a-days i visit this blog, only to move to another one - more specifically The Dilbert One. Try as much as I may, I keep losing the URL of that.
I kinda miss those posts which wld make me think im not the only one who rants about stuff that only people in late 90s discuss about :)

Shekhar said...

arpana: Lol.. Hmm.. Yeah..I've always thought I should've been born in another decade.
