What she wanted to tell me before I became an orphan?

It’s hard to be liberal when you see your dying mother asking you to leave her immediately, and the same way it’s easy to be liberal running your fingers on keyboard buttons and periodically grabbing the coffee cup to take a sip…..[read more..-

Who’re you? Introduce yourself.

This post should have been published earlier as the first introductory article of this blog. But not my fault! It has always been a task for me to introduce myself, blame my extraordinary invisible life achievements or my dislike to the concept of self-introduction.
After the grand success of my first blog post which fetched as many as two likes, I thought of giving a look to other famous WordPress blogs. One of which I saw was started just a few months back. I hurriedly looked for the blog’s first post to reconfirm whether it’s only me to receive such a huge response to the very first article of my blog or there are more like me. Unfortunately, she wasn’t as successful as me with only eighty likes on the first post in which she introduced herself. Here, after reading her introductory post, I thought of trying my hands on the same. Not that I do copy people but there shouldn’t be an issue with trying what you’re not comfortable with. Or else what sense will the comfort-zone-ven-diagram posts make which we often see being shared on facebook pages?

comfort-zone

Hello, my name is Swastik Saraswat…err! That’s too formal, no? Let’s just go with the flow and respect the comfort zone which is much needed than the magic.
Another problem with me is that when exams are around, so deep a sudden crave for writing emerges into my heart that I can’t resist the feeling. I already own a Facebook page which has managed to get around ten thousand likes so far, of course, with the help of other page editors; Suyash Pandey is the co-editor and sometimes, I feel he is more loyal than me to the page. The page has mainly been used to spread a few thoughts related to core Indian politics and social issues. Besides this, I have also written a book titled ‘The Other Class Of Human Beings‘ which is live on Amazon. I’m pretty sure none of you does know about it but don’t worry, someday you will. And yes, I do also like to click photographs which I upload on National Geographic website’s open platform. Needless to say, I’ll upload them on this blog too.

This weekend, when another entrance exam is around on 28th of January, I felt like doing something new and start a blog with a resolution that I shall write a new post every other day. This time, I’m not going to keep myself limited to the core Indian issues or a particular field. I’ll post all the stuff from what I get to see on the streets of India to the India of my brain; from Rajasthan’s sand dunes to the food dishes I do try to make; from my childhood stories to the vast fiction world residing in my brain. Hope to see you hovering around the posts every time. And wait! Somebody told me that my blog’s ‘follow’ button is not working, so before you share my blog would you please test the ‘follow’ button on the right-bottom corner of this page?
