Memories of 2011.....

Hello everyone! So final date of year 2011 has come and soon it would be new year 2012 or as I write maybe the new year has already set in some parts of the world. Year 2011 saw many ups and downs in whole world but here I would like to talk on personal level.

My first half of the year went in normal way with me watching tv programmes talking endlessly about them and basically wasting time while socializing and other things.  But second half did some changes to my life. I did something which I never thought I would. People make resolutions for new year but here I want to share past six months of my life and even though thanksgiving is gone I still want to thank a lot of people.

June 2011 encouraged by a very dear friend of mine Bhaskar, I started this blog. I was totally clueless on how things work and what should I be writing but constant support and mild scoldings and lot of encouragement I was finally a blogger. So here is big big thanks to you buddy to put me on this platform letting me express myself and being a chatterbox giving me an outlet to express my thoughts and feelings. Here is  wishing you a very super duper birthday today.  

Starting blog was ok but then I was panicking again. What title should I give to my blog, what url should I make which would reflect me. Along came to rescue another dear friend Vistaa who helped me with title and url. A big thanks to you dear Vistaa for helping me on this and also supporting me  and my   write-ups. Still do miss your comments buddy so please show your valuable presence here.

Nandini though invisible still was another one who supported and loved what I wrote and I had to make faces when she disappeared in middle but came back again with a bang.  

Gauri who without fail comments on each and every post of mine first and is always there to give me ideas. Psst.. sms post idea was hers. Thanks for being there Gauri.

Along the way came Sangeeta Vimi, Madhu, Prashasti ,Jolie,Mukta and others who supported me in their own way.  I still miss presence of lots of people but lives do get busy. Hope they do come around soon.

Next came big bunch of friends from and top of the list is vinod (itechcolumn) who I have bugged so much to get answers I am sure he must be banging his head everytime I ask him questions. I have learnt a lot from his site and implemented some of his ideas and tutorials here. Puru, Suresh, Hema and others thanks for being there and visiting my blog.

My post is getting really long now but I guess I am in mood to talk. The past six months have been a revelation for me and making me utilize my time and learn new things and making new friends.

Finally comes my family, my husband and my kids who would at times proof read to see if I have written correct grammar. I tend to forget my punctuations at times but people close to me know where my fullstop is and where my comma is. Ha ha..

I haven’t made any resolutions but I just wanted to thank everyone for being there and hoping I would see all of you along with those who are missing to be there again in new year.

There is one advert which comes on tv which says har ek friend zaroori hota hai ( each friend is necessary) so here is big wish for everyone.

celebrate new year  but dont drink and drive.
