Guys!! At the onset let me wish u all a belated Happy Friendship day. May the bond of our friendship remain unbreakable(We don’t need Fevicol ,do we ?). All apologies for not wishing any of you on Friendship day .It just skipped my mind so didn’t sms or call any of you although had to reply out of complusion to the forwarded SMSes I was getting throughout the day & though none of you also called or SMSed & I realized this one day after the F-day(don’t get me wrong here it means Friendship day ) but I m ok wid it bcoz as they say “Sound of silence” speaks the most & we dont need this wishing thing on a particular day.
Coming to the main topic of this post ,the other day I was thinking about this blog’s journey or rather our journey on this blog has been over the last one year. How was the journey been??I hope you would agree with me that TWM has been the the best thing that could has happened for remaining in touch after college .The journey here has been really great,to say the least.It has provided us a platform to interact regularly with each other-with people who actually are your friends(Raj-I hope we all are your friends first & “future prospects” later ;-)..sahi bola naa). Although sometimes this blog goes into a long slumber with the same post hung out there on it’s face but then somebody or the other comes in the shining armour to rescue it from dying & then hurray!! again the blog becomes alive.I feel that it would have been great had we had more of our friends here .I sometimes feel irritated that these guys have all the time to do everything in the world but they don’t have time to visit this even once a fortnight-some typical examples being Mr. Gandhi who has got an internet connection at his home-he even sometimes visits it s but never has the time to leave a comment,Karma who seems to have sunk into oblivion from the blogging world,Krishnan who has all the time to remain online on Orkut throughout the day but doesnt have even 5 minutes to spare .Leave aside AP & Shanoob as they work on their own whims & fancies so won't even comment on them .But then we can all hope that Maybe one day all these people run out of their bloody excuses & discover the fascinating world of TWM . Amen!!
Looking at the brighter side, though we are only a handful of people here but the interaction is so intense -sometimes very serious ,sometimes very funny but all the time very gud that it never gets boring to read posts & comments .
Also,in my opinion,this platform is better than the Topfloorers community on Orkut because it’s very difficult to post something continuously there without a reason but since somebody or the other takes the intiative of posting something on TWM so it becomes easy to interact here.One more gud thing which has happened since this big-time blogging phemonenon is that the interaction here has given a better respite from the urge to reply to utterly boring scraps on Orkut-the prime being “How are you?” & “Aur Kya chal raha hai ?“ .I have read & heard these two sentences so many times that they now make me sick & whenever i get these scraps I simply write back. “Fine” & “Bas Kuch nahin” .That’s it!! No it’s not arrogance but js that I don’t feel like replying more. Not that I do it with good friends but yes with people who just scrap you for passing their time.
Ok!! Coming back to blog-talk,these days it’s great to see the blog buzzing with posts ,pics & sheer number of comments on every post(On Raj’s post it has touched 20).Feels like we are actually talking to each other. Let’s keep on flying like this & hope that our other mates will someday get sometime off their supposedly busy schedules to come & visit this great forum.Also guys if some more people(apart from Topfloorers) get interested in joining this,get them on the bandwagon as we'll have more posts.
If we go like this I am sure that some years down the line we'll not only feel happy reading all these posts but you never know TWM may come in the limelight as being a trendsetter.Who knows more peeople(batchmates) may follow the TWM's way for expressing their opinions,talking to each other & above all keeping in touch with each other!!!
Anwyays,keep this blog alive. Post anything-literally anything.But no Ctrl-X+Ctrl-V articles though.Anything original,however small or big ,however inconsequential,relevant or irrelevant,it really doesnt matter as we are all waiting to listen to anything from each other.After all that's what Friendship is all about!!
Keep blogging.My own blog is dead & is resting in peace.:0
Cheers to the spirit of this blog!!!Cheers to us!!
LONG LIVE TWM!!!
