A message in your inbox can change your life….forever. It happened to me, Pandora Poikilos, a versatile blogger, writer, whose work centres around book reviews, product reviews, feature articles, ghost writing e-books, among other things, tagged my blog, http://sulekkha.blogspot.com/ , as blog of the week (23rd March – 30th March 2010) at http://peacefrompieces.blogspot.com/p/blog-licious.html.
My heartfelt thanks to her, as she has helped me realize a part of my dream, by choosing my Memoirs. My dream is the same as any other Blogosphere member’s dream, to be recognized for all the hard work that I put in my writing, to be appreciated by my fellow writers and to reach all corners of the Blogosphere and beyond.
I started my journey in the Blogosphere on a sad note, my father’s passing away made me want to put my feelings about him, down in my blog and my earlier entries are all my tears and longings pasted on the pages of Memoirs. He helped me even after he had gone away from my physical world. He had wanted to see me excel in the field of writing and was my harshest and dearest critic. I hope to realize his dream of becoming a good writer and every day I stand before god, with folded hands and pray that I am able to reach those in need of some hope. If my writing can motivate, help or bring a smile to someone’s face, if I can make a difference in one life. It will be worth it.
My father had lived by the philosophy of the great Stephen Grellet, dad had had this quote framed and put up in our living room for us to see every day and live by it.
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
It’s strange how god sends his angels, disguised as humans to enrich and transform our lives, I am grateful to him for sending me all these and many more , who have added to my humble existence with their contribution. Jim Brandano, bestowed upon me the Versatile Blogger award this month, thank you so much for the same Jim. You set the ball rolling…
Eva Manya, was another link in the chain of angels, her invite to Rimly Bezbaruah,( another angel), resulted in her inviting me to Ladies Club, a blogging community, set up by my Mitr(friend) Kriti Mukherjee, I have yet to meet Kriti in person. All these wonderful people and rest of the members of the Blogosphere have contributed in numerous ways to my life, be it by their comments, links, likes follows or silent readings. A big thank you, to all of you out there.
As my Award week comes to an end, I feel a bit nostalgic about my blog not being posted on Pandora’s page, but am happy that some other blogger will be given a chance to shine and proudly display his/her talent to us all. My best wishes to all and god bless.
Lucks aka Sulekha
