Uninterested readers can drop out at this level becuase a head-ache may be in the offing after reading the rest :)! As to the rest of the 'brave' ones.....read on....
I have always been a very private individual. And I mean private in every sense. I hate explaining myself, my emotions, my responses and my reactions to anyone.
But through this blog, I have done just that. And I have gone a step further in bridging the gap between myself and those few chosen ones. Because being private is not the same as being anonymous.
There are times when I involve myself very actively in and around me. But during the rest (which is most), I prefer to take the backseat – just observing life and people change around me.........
To most of you out there, this blog has served the purpose of a window, letting you on into bits and pieces of my existence out here. However, I have to admit that there’s a lot of it which remains untouched and unblogged and will remain so – a part of my private persona.
To those chosen ones out there, you have to understand that beneath this sunny façade chugs away a realistic and down-to-earth mind.

Achaa lagta hain that for them reading my blogs has become as much a practice as I writing them. When they express their appreciation through comments or mails. When I receive mails like “Hi chitra...me a silent reader of
Much as I like to believe that I am “Witty, sarcastic, optimistic”, I would like to clarify that I was not born one; rather I was moulded by something called the vagaries of life. Sometimes harsh, sometimes smooth, sometimes unrelenting, sometimes unchanging, and sometimes unforgiving, life goes on......
As I stated, I am a bystander – just observing life and people change around me.........and getting changed in the process......like a piece of driftwood.....just trying to connect to the rest of the world through this platform......through my space.
