Diwali-The festival of lights

A very very happy diwali to all 🙂

In all of my 20 years, I’ve not yet understood the fun in bursting crackers. And I don’t think I ever will.

What really does one get out of them?  Except for tons of pollution. I might be more sensitive to the pollution because of being allergic to smoke, but even for those who aren’t, my question remains the same, what oh what do you get, guys?

Okay, you burst a cracker, say a bomb, then what, a lot of noise, smoke?? Where is the fun?

I totally see the point of rockets et al, they look really pretty up in the sky. But why the ones which give only noise???

Why can’t we all celebrate this beautiful festival with a lot of diyas, lights, clean and decorated homes, lots of sweets (my favourite part), gifts and most important of all- family ! 🙂

Anyway, a very happy and prosperous diwali everyone. Enjoy yourselves, in whatever way you wish to  !! 🙂

 P.S. I happen to be scared of the loud crackers…. So, pleaseeee don’t burst them!!

A beginning

Okay. So here’s my first post (not literally). Starting this blog and writing took quite a lot of thinking. Not really thinking actually. I was sure I want to start but wasn’t sure if I want to express my thoughts this way. See, I’m getting all muddled up.  Okay, let me start again.

I’m more on the introvert side, in general. But with my friends, with whom I’m comfortable, I don’t hide anything at all. And I speak A LOT. But I’m not very comfortable writing down things about myself here, at least right now. But since I love writing, I hope to overcome my introvert-ness. I haven’t told any of my friends or family about this blog, for the sole reason that I’d feel awkward if they read this. I have no clue why I’d feel that way, but I most probably would. Only strangers are reading this, is okay with me. For now.

There are a lot of reasons I’m starting this blog. One, mentioned above.

Another could be because I love talking about myself. My sister calls me a show-off, though I disagree. I just like talking about myself, is that such a bad thing????

Another benefit, by default, is that writing here is going to help me practice for the exams I have to take in the near future. This includes CAT(for MBA) and GRE(for MS).

And, considering my current state of mind, I definitely need an outlet for my highly confused, complex, muddled-up thoughts.

So, enough for my first post. Would soon be back with more.

P.S. frankly, I don’t think ANYONE in the world is going to read this stupid post, but I’d love to be proven wrong.
