There is always a first time and there are no second chances. With my first blog ever, I make this foray into a very well-populated community characterized by shared experiences and a zeal for attention. As a professor, I try to guide my students on the path of knowledge, on which I too continue to tread. As a researcher, it is my endeavor to constantly update myself and make my own contribution. As a blogger, I will try to do all of these and then some more.
My world is all about exploration. Its about exploring ones own self to frame ones own identity, philosophy and purpose. I believe in living life inside-out. I hope my blogs will reflect this journey of mine, in which others are welcome to share their insights, by really looking at issues that affect our lives, or those we can identify with.
All our lives, we seek to understand others and seek to be understood by others. That is the relationship we strive to achieve, be it with people, society or our environment. That is, I believe, how we grow and how our reality acquires a meaning. And, this is the process I wish to take to this platform, so that as I share my thoughts, feelings, philosophy, knowledge, experiences in the lofty Himalayas and those with the mystics they are home to, others can reflect, discuss and offer insights that will hone our understanding of life.
Just as I juggle so many interests from books to music to dancing to quizzing to philosophy to languages to scriptures to adventure to yoga my blogs too will tackle every topic under the sun. You may not like everything, may not agree with everything, in which case, drop in a line and start a discussion, so that it may lead to an exchange of ideas.
Finally, why blog? The technological edge of instant feedback, great outreach and democracy therein is hard to resist.
Why read it? coz I am writing it 🙂
