The Blog Recap, Recollecting the Past

Before anything, I thank all fellow bloggers and readers who spent their time here in nourishing and motivating me to keep going with the blog through their words of appreciation. Thereby, I also welcome new visitors. 

Recently, due to my mind-boggling curios mind, I took an hour from everything and decided to give a look at all of my posts irrespective of the topic (though, it’s not a surprise that mostly are related to books) I have written here in the past 2 years and a few months. Starting from the first one which felt evident till the recent one. It brings a recollection of memories whether the good memories, bad memories, the frustration ones, the generous ones and most importantly the feeling of accomplishment. All of these and many others too. Every post is like an attachment to a file that consists of details matching a reality which I was surrounded by the specific course of time. It’s a like a voyage in the past and reading through your journal. It makes me feel happy, abolishes any sense of voidness and at the same time bequeaths me to continue to do what I do. To write, to explore new things about the people who visit everyday, of course, the books (how the hell can I forget them?) and myself.

Looking back, at past, is not recommendable likewise is not avoidable. It holds lots of valuable of lessons, only if we agree on becoming his pupil with good conscience.

Let’s take a look back to some posts that either, I feel, might bring back your old memories too (if you are recurrent visitor) or might generate new ones.

GUEST POST: Zareen Naqvi- When your mom gets engaged before you do

It’s always fun to get to know fellow bloggers! I’m glad I have met so many. And am longing to meet more. Thus, I thought why not invite “Guest Bloggers” to my blog and share their experience in their own words? Well here is the first one. 


WHEN YOUR MOM GETS ENGAGED BEFORE YOU DO

by Zareen Naqvi 

First off, congratulations! Your mum snagged a fella before you. She told him to put a ring on it and he did. Unlike your ring finger, which is dry, lonely and vacant. Not to mention, without a ring.
