I am on a new trip. I want to write short blogs. This is not to say that the long manuscripts with no end in sight will stop. No no, those will most certainly be there. I love to randomly ramble about pointless things, of course. (Which by the way, is totally different from ‘pointlessly ramble about random things’, something I do NOT do. Yes I’d like to believe that, so shoo!)

But I rarely write the ‘Hey, I woke up this morning and I was thinking..‘ type of stuff. The ‘Oooh! I just had a life-altering thought! Why don’t you come to my blog and read all about how my brilliant mind works?‘ routine is rather self-indulgent and vain, I guess. But then again, isn’t that what blogs are all about? Blowing one’s own trumpet in the name of self-expression? I know mine is.

    Both have their place in the blogging world, the long and short of it.
    Yes, I agree many of your posts are not pointless, random though they might be. Your reviews and previews especially are super !

    One more comment about your blog, its simply one of the “best looking” blogs around .. Also you seem to be constantly adding chothu ghantes and seentis .. good work

    [Anirudh] Thank you! Glad to know you find the reviews and previews worthwhile.

    [iii] See, that is what happens when you read too much into my RRAPT. Literally! :)

    Firstly, sorry about accidentally deleting my post! Nothingz goin right for me from the morning, and this was just one of them ;)

    I dont get the point… Whatz the big deal about the size of a blog? If I write a blog, at the end of it, I would like to feel good about it. Dont think I would bother about the size. Mebbe I am missin something over here… Pardon the newest blogger around the corner ;) Am just 1 week old in the big bad world of blogging!



    PS: Hey I added 1 more article to muh blogsite!!! Check it out… And also be nice and post a comment!!!

    Rrapturous post! I’ve always believed that Rrapting (though I had other random words for it) requires a lot of talent and effort and should be taken extremely seriously. Depending on one’s geographical, demographical and sexual dispensations it can be an art, a science, a scientific art or an artistic science and in certain cases, a way of life (eg. AB in Namak Halal who says, Aaj rrapt jaayein to hamein naa uthaiyo!)

    Shall keep watching this space from some glorious and delightful rrapting!

    On a general note, I think there seems to be some confusion about what it is I meant to say. My point was that regardless of what kind of rambling one does (random or pointless), blogs tend to be a lil self-indulgent and vain, even if cloaked in the name of self-expression, my own blog included. But to quote Seinfeld – not that there’s anything wrong with it! As I always say – If you don’t blow your trumpet, who will. And what better place to do it than one’s blog!

    [Hawkeye] Yes with gurus like you .. But what part were you alluding to? Being vain or writing shorter blogs? ;)

    [Vignesh] There’s absolutely no deal about the size of a blog. That is the very point of my writing. To write about a non-issue and give it undue importance. Thought that was apparent by now :D By the way, I am always nice. *ahem* I already posted a comment!

    [oxy_moron] With puns and digs like these its a minor miracle you haven’t yet gotten a couple of rraptas! :> But you have escaped by mentioning ‘aaj rapat jaaye‘, one of my favorite masti-waala rain songs. Asha sounds so playfully sensuous and Smita sizzles on screen. And Amitabh. Ab kya bolun!
