and the catharsis begins!

It was bound to happen. The number of bloggers I know. I knew I would get onto this megalomania (read: blogging) some day. I always thought I had nothing to say to anyone. But suddenly I feel verbose. There is a need to put things down. Points of view- concepts- ideas- takes- theories (for whatever little they are worth). This could be my space to clear my head. My catharsis (I have a love-hate relationship with that word). A space I enter, vent-out, justify in, explain, indulge and some such. The people I know may read this. It is inconsequential what they think (all of them). This is one space I have created that is for me- solely. I will try and avoid using this blog as a weapon/ tool to tackle people who I know would be reading this. Unlike the concept of aesthetics in India, where the viewer (rasika) is essential to complete the aesthetic experience, the neo virtual space is independent of readers. I think I feel like eating some aftereight chocolates.

:-( Like even MY opinion doesn't matter? *Going off to cry in a corner*
Am extremely interested in this weapon/tool angle...
Btw like what's with the prosaic template? ;-)
(And also - you really should allow anonymous commenting - how else do you expect other non-bloggers to get interested and eventually take the plunge like you did?)
geetanjali- your opinions matter but sometimes one needs to be. whatever that means.

this weapon is not to be used.

the prosaic template is to keep it nice and simple. there's always time to make it messy.
It is bound to begin. You hold back initially but once you get into it, it sucks you in.
