This was the first post that I posted in this blog, exactly 365 days ago. The only reason I created this blog was to find out how my sister actually found it interesting to write stuff on a website and read about what other people thought about it. She had a livejournal account and so being the do-the-complete-opposite-of-what-your-sibling-does person that I was, I opted for blogger. I decided that I would challenge people to beat me at Yahoo Pool through my blog but I failed miserably in that attempt(who wouldn't with such a stupid post!). It was a while, about five months, before I really thought seriously about writing properly. I was inspired to write my first more-than-four-lines-post after watching two incredibly horrendous TV shows and since then I've been addicted to blogging, an addiction I don't mind at all. Blogging has helped me so much; it's made me much more self-confident and assertive and it's also helped me make new friends. I never thought that I would actually continue persisting with this blog for a whole year but amazingly I have. It's been so much fun writing and after what's been a pretty good year, I can finally wish my blog, "Happy Birthday!".

P.S: That Yahoo Pool challenge is still on ; )

are you planning on an event commemorating the 1st anniversary,with a flash presentation and a speech from you on the podium holding back the tears?;-)
the first one I read was ur hilarious description of ur delhi trip and adding Kal Ho Na Ho to every context.I called my mom and asked her to read it.then ur proposed film 'That Damn Cola'.reminded me of Pink Pather crossing the road.
then abt Fourth Umpire- its trash..i agree.Charu is the only sane guy there.for all his gifts as a host,i think he is working for the wrong people.why did he quit Star?he and Harsha would've made a deadly pair.Oh did i forget Extraaaa Innings?cricket is better off without it.

Umm, I don't know flash so it'll probably be powerpoint.

And thanks!

Congratulations!! Happy Birthday to your blog.. :-)

Btw, blogging has also helped you win a prize... ;-).. How do you want your 50$? You could wait until I come to India around March, or you could create a paypal account...
