Back to Blogging

Life was bit busy for me in recent times and that is why I was away from blogging. The biggest motivation for blogging (any blogger would vouch) is the encouragement given by the readers. It not necessarily be praise all the time even brickbats are welcome. I was especially elated to see Gautam Satpathy putting up some comment here. I have been regular reader of his blog and it is sheer pleasure to read him. Hope I continue blogging and try to improve upon it.
