Well...the title makes it quite obvious I guess.
This is my 100 th post..and this blog turns 3 years in another 10 days.
I wanted to make it special for myself and for the few loyal readers...
So here is my anniversary-cum-century-cum-valentines day gift for ya all and most importantly to myself...yippeeee...
And my treat for everyone dropping by
A bit of a story
It all started actually in 2005 as a Newyear resoultion...It was a suggestion from a friend who had a great blog running...And like many other victims,I got addicted pretty fast...It was a total cool thing...I used to bunk my classes and sit for hours and hours wholly devoted for blogging[includes reading others as well]
Somewhere down the line I found friends who blog..bloggers who became friends...And the addiction was so potent that I started blogging for others..to please people with verbal gymnastics...to get more comments..and to get more hits...It gave me some sort of a high..but eventually like all highs it hit a low note..infact the lowest..I couldnt think of anything more to write to please people..hence I began to unfrequent blogosphere....But then,life comes in a full circle..and again I started writing and this time just for myself...not caring about what others think about me..and I survived many of my worst times just because of this catharsis
I dedicate this post to all my blogger friends-
Some I know well
Some I got to know well
Some read silently
Some I dare to comment on
Some who rekindles hope
Some who make me realize Im not alone...
The best of me...
It might not be masterpieces.It was pure instinct and gut which made me pick these three which I consider to be the top 3
- Princess v/s Queen-A flash of inspiration made me write this comparison.And I love it for the spontaneity
- She- Every time I read it,it amazes me and gives me inspiration to try more
- Will You?-I wrote this one out of sheer desperation and tears transformed as words.It will be the most emotionally laden post I have ever written.
The Best Of You...
This is a toast to all of you.
I am picking some of your posts which clicked with me instantly.It might not be the bestest..but I sure love those and more of you all...
And yes,I have read all your posts in the past few weeks to prepare myself for it..;)
So here we go [not in any particular oder]
Moment of truth
I owe him for introducing me to the world of blogging.And there are other fabulous posts which actually is he at its best.But this one is close to my heart,because he has written on something which I never dared to write about.
Its absolute joy to see him dip and paint a season of emotions.
This doc takes the cake for passionate writing.And especially this post oozes of fervent passion and courage.I totally adore this one.

Jiby is one of the most candid bloggers I have met in blogosphere.I envy the simplicity in its magnificence.And this post especially because it is a brilliant attempt at a short autobiography.I wish I could think so lucidly.

He is one of the real blessings I got from blog world.Cool as a cucumber,he never fails to speak his mind.This post is purely Adi and thats why it is here.

Every post of hers is a roller coaster ride of fun.She can make any shady day a brighter one.Love Sayesha for that.And these two posts for the boundless creativity and ahem..maybe because I won a prize too...
Just for the sheer gut of putting a taboo word into such a mesmerizing visual treat.Kafka cafe made a fine cappuccino there
From a legendary woman
This lady sings with her words as good as she sings with her beautiful voice.This post steals the thunder with the heartwrenching beauty of it all.Never seen a better post about mothers
Silverine selling ice
One of the most popular bloggers and with good reason.Her comic timing and brilliant satire is just too perfect.And this one is totally out of the world
he is close to my heart for many reasons.But one of it is that she is an ethereal writer.I hope she does publish a book one day.And this post specially because it speaks my mind through finely refined words
Its quite a world of wonders.He does an amazing balancing act of precise wealth of information and lively creativity.A heady mix of self and the world.This post because of its novelty and also because it talks about blogging.[Now you know I wanted to check out your archives..hehe]
Simple and great.No frills attached yet takes you to another realm of thinking.And here is one of those.

His one post = 1000 posts.All I can say he is a genius with the camera.This image had haunted me in dreams..[;)]
Her words are as intense as the person she is...This post..for its blazing intensity and it deserves to be told
Treat of some serious spices.Poignant and always thought provoking.Kudos to his ever enthu initiative
He does not write often.But when he does,its always rare and precious.
Jo was a pleasant find.She pleases with an easy yet powerful writing style.And this post of hers shows the fire in her words

Amazing sense of style.Serious humour at its best.Here is proof.
Nails the right spot always.Gifted with marvelous instincts and this post pictures it wonderfully

Like Sarah, whom I read religiously everyday but couldnt pick a single post because the beauty of the blog lies in its wholeness
Like Quills and Maya who dont write anymore [or I dont know of em writing...plz lemme know if you do]
Like others whom stumble upon once in a while.
Hope you enjoyed the treat.Please do add more of yours and others and if yo liked any[by some fatal accident],mine too
HAPPY BLOGGER VALENTINES DAY!!!
