Celebrating Failure! Yes, you read that right!

I had signed up for #halfmarathon- a 15day blogging marathon challenge by a blogging community, Blogchatter. As expected I started with much enthusiasm and fervently rolled out a few posts. In spite of the crazy hectic schedules and travel routines, I was making sure that I write down something daily. I used all those pending ideas and thoughts and turned them into blogposts. Sharing them one post a day. However, there were days when the schedules over-powered and I missed posting even a single article. When I missed one post initially, I was upset over it. But then I realized that I have been achieving the objective I had in mind while signing up for this blogging marathon.

Blogging marathons like all the other marathons survive on the synergy of the community. This community encourages every individual to do better than his/her best. In spite of this knowledge, I have not been a part of any blogging challenge so far. Never thought I could do justice to this synergy. But I have developed a genuine liking for this wonderful community of bloggers called The Blogchatter. I have been interacting with some lovely people through this blogging community. So when they announced a blogging marathon, I thought of biting the bullet.  Though I could not participate as I had planned, I certainly made genuine efforts and tried to keep going. I pushed myself a little bit more and squeezed my schedule slightly more to accommodate some time for writing. And I finally did some of those things from my “to do “list. I also came across some lovely blogs during this marathon. Some of them made me smile, some of them resonated my opinions while some more stimulated my thought process and gave me more food for thought. All in all, it was a great experience. And though a failed to keep up to the challenge, I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it. So much so that I feel like celebrating this failure too!

Cabin Monologue

I feel nice. I spoke to my friend after a long time. I don’t understand why he distanced himself over the last few years. We were so close in college. We also got a job in the same company. Both of us worked hard to get where we are today. Our means were different, so were our expectations from our position. Of course, I love my family but I wanted to enjoy the benefits that came with my powerful position. He didn’t agree with me. I guess that was the reason he stopped talking to me. I was really happy to talk to him today but then he started the same old nonsense. What does he mean that it will blow in my face? That I should change? Times are changing, he said. I wanted to shout back at him that nothing has changed and it never will.

Cross Connection is not a book

Yes, you read that right. Cross Connection is not a book. Or, let me rephrase that. Cross Connection is not just a book. It is much more than that. It is a feeling I have lived for last so many years. It is a testimonial of the love of two completely opposite people who decided to come together. It is a tribute to their families with completely different cultures who came together and celebrated this bond of love. It is an ovation to the challenges that these two people and their families faced while adjusting with each other and came closer. And it is a promise that in spite of everything, this cross connection will only grow stronger.
