But then what should I do now? Can I write more blogs? Thanks to Mouthshut, I know that I can write well enough. The added advantage of blogging is that there are no restrictions on blogger which exist on MouthShut. I can write just about anything and everything. A brief comparison between blogging and mouthshut told me that I can continue to write on Mouthshut as I have been doing for the last one year but I will use blogs to express my thoughts on things and topics that cannot be a part of mouthshut.
I know that there are a lot of problems associated with mouthshut, but still I like to write on it. It gives me happiness as I get to interact with people there and their varied responses are sometimes difficult to reply. I like that, and I am being honest. I have a lot to talk about and mouthshut has given a mouthpiece to my thoughts. Today was a happy day for me as I wrote my 50th review and have got a good response from mouthshut members. But blogging is different. There are things and topics that cannot be added to the mouthshut database, for obvious reasons as well, and I have random thoughts about them too. It is for this reason that I have started liking blogging.
For instance, my last blog was about astrology and its various aspects. After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that it cannot be added to the mouthshut database. That’s why I wrote a blog on it. The added advantage was that I was able to write a much longer blog than what I could have written on mouthshut. Plus, there is the added advantage of having privacy in that I can hide my blog from public view, but I cannot hide my review (of mouthshut) from public view.
Even while blogging, I run out of ideas. One moment I had like 10 topics hovering in various corners of my mind but as soon as I sat down to key them down, I lost all the thoughts. That happens a lot. Mind wanders all over. Even as I write this blog, my mind wandered back to 1998, as I remembered going to PVR Anupam (Multiplex) with my friends to watch Kuch Kuch hota Hai (A Bollywood movie). I just recalled the fun we had extracting Rs. 250 out of one guy who was late for the show and we nearly managed to miss it thanks to him.
My mind again wanders back to PVR Anupam, although the year has changed to 1999, as I recall myself and some of my friends ogling at girls from a nearby college. I really can’t do much about my mind; it has a tendency to wander everywhere. It is still wandering, as I listen to a sad song at midnight on a local FM radio station. But then let’s just say that these are meaningless random ramblings. To be honest, I don’t know why I should write it and go to the extent of posting it on blogger.com
Another random thought – just moments ago, I heard on the radio that Indian hockey team has lost a match to world champions Germany. No wonder, our sports teams are hilarious. In fact, we Indians are really hilarious. We go to the Olympics, Asian games, the Commonwealth games and fail to win medals. We play Cricket, the country goes crazy about it, and we end up losing to just about everyone on planet, including club-class teams like Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. And yet, we hail our sportsmen, calling them heroes. When they win, we raise them to cult status and when they lose, we dig their graveyards. And at the end of the day we believe in the Olympic philosophy – that victory and loss are part of the game, and we must not give a thought to it. Given the competitive nature of world sports, we must stop thinking on those lines and start looking at our sporting resources in a more positive way so as to achieve some good results.
