I have been blogging since 2011. I used Google’s Blogger platform until one of my friends suggested that he had difficulty accessing posts. He recommended me to migrate to a better platform. That is when I decided to switch to WordPress. I find that this is a much better platform.
I write mostly about spiritual topics to share and learn about life with everyone. I also love movies and write very brief reviews every time I find a good one to share it with everyone because sharing is joy, friendship and love! I have been exploring Vedic Astrology for about a decade now–so I share my ideas and observations on Astrology time to time. Some posts don’t belong to any category strictly–yes, this is a personal blog but it mostly contains useful ideas and observations, at least in my humble opinion. I used to scribble a lot in my college days, in order to improve my intelligence and creativity. Later on, I internalized this habit of scribbling upto the extent that it became an integral part of my life. When I started frequenting cyberspace on a regular basis in 2008, I started keeping an online account of my observations because it was easier and more rewarding as voluminous notebooks filled with my observations were both illigible and useless for others. I had to burn many of my notebooks to get rid of them as it was becoming a huge task to manage them and carry them with me wherever I went.
It’s true that it all started just with scribbling, compulsive uninhibited scribbling to reinforce creativity and original thinking. But one of the most crucial ingredients which enhances the learning for any individual was missing from the picture. It was the Feedback. We all learn from feedback and grow if we keep receiving appropriate timely feedback. Systems which don’t receive timely appropriate feedback die very soon. Therefore, I started blogging and it did increase feedback but only wee-bit. Why I didn’t start getting a lot of feedback for my ideas? Perhaps, because I could not get many readers interested in my blog. The ideas which I presented before my readers were not interesting enough to make them give their sincere feedback on them. I did get a few page-views on my blog but comments were very rare.
I live in India. I received a bachelor of engineering in Electronics in 2008 and worked as a programmer for about 3 years. I took voluntary retirement from professional scene when I was 27 years old because I wanted to devote my life for spirituality and service. I took renunciation in a spiritual ceremony in 2013. I am happy about life and grateful to the existence because I have become happier day by day in my life.
