From a beginner..


May be this is going to be one of my worst writings.. not only because, it doesn’t have any point to articulate, but its going to be utter nonsense.. Its not that I want to write nonsense, but I want to see how my first writing appears in my Blog.. I try to employ the latest ideas, my imagination and make my Blog a colorful and interesting one… one which my family and friends will look forward to see everyday. I know I can’t be a master in a day. It happens eventually… I mean to say very slowly.

It takes ages for me to change... and I can say I haven't changed much in the past ten years emotionally (may be you can leave the last 2-3 years… coz that’s the time when the major things in life happened.. and I have matured myself a bit more than before).. But otherwise if u see... I have evolved slowly into a social human being, which accommodates the modern techniques of today’s civilized world. Or I can say I am left as a evolutionary handicap... I learned many things... but I didn’t master anything. Computer is just one thing.. I never saw a computer until completed my pre-degree. Computer was something beyond my imagination. It was then I was re-planted to Chennai for my college education –the first Big City I saw. I still remember the big Buildings, Roads trafficked by cars (all colors and all types. That time I categorized Vehicles as cars, bus, jeep etc as I dint know the names of the cars. The only cars I knew by name were may be Ambassodor and Maruti… the Beatiful cars where my uncles and aunts used for marriage. ), I felt it was a dream. Forget all these.. what astonished me was the Esculator ( it took ages for me to remember the word E-S-C-U-L-A-T-O-R) which I saw in Spenser Plaza. I couldn’t believe my eyes.. when I saw a staircase which moves on its own. And I was scared to death just to try that. I still do not remember how many times I went in the escalator up and down.. once my fear was subsided.
..Where am I leading my writing to.. come back. Though I write nonsense its should be sensibly nonsense. So I wont deviate from the topic. I was telling you about computer,… ya.. that’s what I was saying.. the first time I saw a computer near is my aunts computer in her Chennai home. I was fascinated by the colorful fishes which I could see on the computer monitor ( MONITOR-a term I learned much later) which disappeared whenever my aunt touched the computer. ( it took years for me to understand what I saw was a screen saver). I didn’t dare to touch it because I had a bad history of spoiling things. May it was then I developed an insatiable appetite to know more about these things. Once I left to my hostel, computer was something I could get “darshanam” only one in two-three months… that’s when I go to my aunt’s house. It was years later that I got to work on a computerize when I was doing my post graduation, I got a simple computer book for starters in Malayalam… one of my friend gave to me.. I don’t remember whether I paid for that.. but that book was priceless. I still have it with me.. the starting was with paint.. then I tried word, excel, PowerPoint etc. by the time I completed my first year in PG I became almost a master in MS office… because we had to give presentations every now and then. We had to prepare reports, projects etc.
In all social circles, we are under enormous pressure to conform to the 'norms' of many different peer groups: if you don't, you risk being teased and gossiped. I cant say its really a pressure for me, but I like exploring.. Computer became a passion for me. Owning a computer, which can think faster than a human brain has been a fascination when I saw it first. As I said I evolved... and now fascination is a necessity. I feel a major part of me is missing when I don’t have my laptop with me.
So this is just another beginning.. a beginning of a blog. I haven’t explored much about it but I want to have one. So let’s see how this progress to be...
I doubt many haven’t gone through my entire writing…if you have, then well I agree you got either lot of patience or you are somebody whom I know well. Anyway thanks for the patience. I want to try my hand in Malayalam blogging too.. because as I Said I can write in English (to some extent) but I think in Malayalam. Your suggestions are welcome.. that’s how I can improve.

Hiii da,
You were the first one who told me about blogs and yours were the first one i read till now. By started reading , I was so interested in that and I didn't think that I can finish it by a day. But the truth is that i finished reading all within 2-3 hours. that wa really nice. It took me to walk through the older days where we studied togeteher in Assumption college. Still it remains a nostalgic feeling in my mind. We royal 6, our friendships, some kusruthikal, palliyil pokal, sr. cheru, kallom parenju hostel il ninnum purathu chaadunnathu. I know that those days are not gonna come again. All thoose are just memories now, not just but loving sweet memories which will never fades till death.
Articles you wrote are really interesting, keep on writing. I wish I could do the same as this. But I don't know. so what I can do is to encourage you to become one of the next best writers. and i will encourage you forever my sweet friend.
