An Introduction

Well...for all those who don't know me, I am not a great writer, nor a brilliant thinker. Just a normal "common man" as they say on the verge of completing my engineering degree. Suddenly I see a wave of bloggers beginning to emerge, so why not me. I don't promise anything extraordinary here. This is just an attempt to explore my writing skills further and what better than a blog. Free of cost, not much time involved, update whenever I feel like and when a wave is rising, its always better to swim with it rather than swim against it. Who knows this better than a person like me, who has been living in the coastal belt of India or more specifically the scenic state of Goa for about 18 years of his life.

Now that the Statement of Purpose is done, lets get back to business. If you have come to this blog, you might find the title to be very strange. "History, Mystery, Daal and Biryani" .. WTF many might say, what is the relation between all these words. To be honest, there isn't any, so don't burden your minds trying to find one. I have copied this title from a storybook which I had read in my childhood. "Why the hell is it being used here?" .. well...these are the very aspects that I want to explore in this blog. The history...or the past which has made me what I am today. The mysteries that have always surrounded me, some of which I haven't yet been able to solve. Regarding the Daal and Biryani...well...i havent thought much about these points other than that i like eating both in my feel free to let your imagination flow.

Now that the confusion regarding the title has been somewhat cleared, let me start blabbering about myself. Professionally, I am an engineer (well..not yet...but would be by May 2010). BTech. in Information Technology from NIT, Allahabad to be more specific. Other than that, well..i would say I am a jack of all trades and master of some. Music has been a passion ever since I recall. Trained for 4 years in Indian Classical music, lost touch once the pressure of academics caught hold of me. Writing fiction was something which began with school dramas. My first full fledged short story was when I was about 14 and it was titled "Uncle John". Again, academics and studies suppressed this talent, but not for long. No sooner did I enter my college life, writing stuff was back along with a new passion for dance. Yes, I do a bit of dance too. This began with the fresher's function in our college in which the first years (it used to sound like a filthy word when our seniors would say it) performed for a whole evening. The Rajasthani folk dance (or rather ARARARARA as it is more popularly known here) began a new interest in dance and I am still hooked on to it. The next in line was my current raging passion ie Photography. I still can't understand how just a small interest turned into an art, a way to let my imagination run wild and to get the pleasure in clicking pictures which could convey a message or even show the beauty of simple things around us.
As you now might have noticed, my taste is not limited to certain aspects. This blog is mainly a way to explore my writing skills to the extent that I have not done earlier. I would be updating regularly, so if you are still interested, well...go ahead and explore my mind with me.
But before you do, let me give a warning. There might be some stuff which some people might not like or rather be ignorant about. All the events and happenings that I would be writing about are TOTAL FICTION which is of course inspired by true events that occured in my life. The names of the people used would be changed in controversial topics.

So I think this was long enough a first post....wait for my next one which would be coming up soon....till then.....Adios!!!!!!!
