The Journey Begins

My first write-up as a blogger!!!!..

Well Well..I never thought I would gather the courage or rather would give importance to my desire of writing about my thoughts ever..But here I am..

I sometime in the middle of something and out of nowhere start wondering about the true purpose and motivation behind everything that I am striving for.. I am a human..I am being human but how??

So when I was coming back from my work, I looked at my watch and the time was 7.30 pm..Suddenly the time chart for next few hours..rather until tomorrow was there in front of me.  8.30 pm @ gym…10 pm@ home watching some show…@12 am work and again 8.15 am @train to office…Is that it??

I wonder when did we (“humans”) become so predictable and so sure about what lies there in the future..or are we living in some sort of self created delusion. But what concerned me was that why was I not thinking of that very present moment and excited about taking to my fellow passenger (the very reason we are called social animals)..In the thirst of defining myself, I have probably forgotten who really I am..In the race of life, I forgot the importance of a second pause!!

I think I forgot being human

  1. Certain Write Ups don’t deserve a feedback. When things come out from the heart, I think we should just stop and stare rather than put them out for judgement.

  2. Your thoughts and your feelings creat your life.!! And by this blog you made it clear to enjoy your present rather than thinking about future 😄

  3. At times it is those few subconscious thoughts that truly tells us where do we come from and where are we going. It is a must for us as “humans” to ponder on these thoughts. Nicely written Niraj.

  4. Hi, found you on First Friday; you left me a link. Nice to meet you!

    An interesting thought. How would you define yourself as ‘human’, what is it to be human? I like your contemplative thoughts, and I like how you bring your personality into what you write. I think there are a lot of introspective people on here who would relate to what you write.

    If you would like advice, I would say to make sure you have a clear purpose and outcome for each post (even if that post’s purpose is to breed enquiry), within an overall plan for your blog. You may have already done this. Make sure you have a clear idea what topics your blog will include and the style of your pieces, (readers like continuity) and if you wish to have several topics, use the tags in the edit post options to categorise for ease-of-reading.

    Secondly, just read through your work afterwards for any sentences that cause the reader to stumble. This is something all writers have to do, because the way we think isn’t necessarily the same as the way we read. Change any sentences that are difficult to read to make them simpler.

    A great first piece, you have tonnes of potential, and are clearly quite philosophical. Which worldly questions will you be delving into next, I wonder?

    2. Hi, I published my another post. Tried to follow your suggestion. Please let me know your valuable feedback.

      Also can you guide how do I connect with larger community and seek inputs. Thanks


      1. I read it and it was much better. Nice job 😊 It is always difficult writing in a language which is not your native one, and the nuances of words take a little while to get the hang of – especially English which is so fiddly! I would suggest reading examples of good English as much as you can, and writing frequently, this way you will learn faster.

        In terms of connecting with the larger community, it is a case of taking the time to read and comment on people’s posts, helping where you can, and building relationships, just as I have spent time with you.

  6. Hey,
    I think this is a great start for a blog.:)
    And I love that your not chit chatting around.
    Just straight to the point!

    As a feedback I would maybe suggest that you go a bit deeper in the questions that you raise.

    To me this post was over too soon. I would have liked to read more about your thoughts.

    However, if you want to keep it short and just produce more, I totally think that’s alright, because, I will definitely follow you and read through some more.:)
    Hope you keep it up!!
    All the best to you, and may the writing open a new door that banking never will.:)

  10. I agree with you and often have these thoughts when stuck in the rat race of life. I find always having a future holiday planned and seeing the world is the way to keep myself afloat. Great post, would love if you could check out my blog sometime and let me know what you think!
