Has it been that long?

Well – I’ve never really been a blogger. I have a blog. But never got much into lengthy and regular blogging. I shy away from writing long pieces in public internet space unless they are authorized publication spaces – peer reviewed spaces most often. Writing long pieces for me is associated with formal publication – […]

Time for wishful thinking again. Less FB status messages, more blog posts?

Shall I become hopeful that I might actually write blog posts regularly? No promises despite the subject header. Time will tell. If you noticed – this “blog post” is itself really written in a format similar to my Facebook status messages – and it would have been a tweet if I’d stayed with the first […]

As my FB friends list becomes more and more uncontrollable (sometimes I don’t even know why and who I’m adding when I get the requests anymore) – I am thinking of this huge “joint family” of social media relations that i keep shouting out to. Is anything in my life private anymore (yes it is […]

Hash tagging my Writing notes

I did have a good early morning ordering of ideas so I should be writing right now – but I am, of course interrupting myself to post this. It occurs to me that I have little writing related notes all over my blogs, emails, Facebook posts and twitter feed that I might do well to […]

Selfies …. Elfies whatever…

When the word selfie Began to be thrown around widely last year, I was reluctant to enter into that conversation and even annoyed at this new “fad” label for things young people have been doing in internet culture for years let alone what people have been doing since the advent of the camera …. Even […]

Sankranthi Subhaakankshalu

“Sankranti is the Sanskrit word in Indian Astrology which refers to the transmigration of the Sun from one R?shi (sign of the zodiac) to another. Hence there are 12 such sankrantis in all. However, the Sankranti festival usually refers to Makara Sankaranti, or the transition of the Sun from Dhanu rashi (Sagittarius) to Makara rashi […]

sinking sinking…thinking aloud in public again – research/writing journeys

[my initial instinct is to put this post on my LJ and/or in a private setting – and maybe I will change this into a private setting later…even here] Being part of multiple contexts – as I immerse myself here, there and then there and here – following the connections – I am once again […]

archive fever again

As I work on the final revisions on the book manuscript while the publishers examine the camera-ready samples – I once again got caught in an archive search frenzy.
