The very idea behind starting to blog was this so called freedom to think and express views on anything and everything. But with the passage of time, this very freedom was curtailed by the presence of known faces online. Thoughts needed a U certificate censorship to avoid unnecessary arguements or explanations. And somewhere the true essence of what I wanted to say lost a battle against fear.
First it were a few friends, then my sis and now my students.
I am not too sure if I should celebrate the reach of this blog or crib about me losing my freedom with each new reader added on to it. As if my sis wasnt enough to question me on my posts, now I have my students coming up to me and asking what I meant when I wrote so and so…
But its fun. At times its so much fun to write something that only I understand or maybe the person in question would, and the rest is left for people to guess… I like those posts… cos thats one time censorship isnt really required. Thats one time I break free…
But then, when have I really cared for what I write as I have always written for myself and about myself. I know a few months back I started off with password protected posts driving my sis crazy. But then, a late realisation, and now those posts are no longer password protected. Yes vinnie you can read them now without a password 🙂
So, Neha, Jasleen, and the others who land in here, always remember my best dhamki… Minus 5 in your next term end exams 🙂
Till then… Have fun !
