Six words and my Life

CBC has once again initiated a tag, this time it's only six words. Brevity is the essence of communication or so I thought until my bachelors / masters degree when we were awarded marks based on the number of additional sheets we used.

The CBSE education instilled in me the art of writing short and to the point. That's part of the reason why I always found it a little painful to write any article with a large word limit. The 6-word memoir is the perfect platform to get back to brevity!

And that..

... is my life in 6 words!

Infinite Hope; Everlasting Love; Only You!

(PS: I can even do a three word memoir - Hope; Love; You! Heck! Even a one word memoir - You!)

Thank you Doc for passing the baton to me. Ganesh Puttu blogs at The relay race will be continued by the university rank holder and hardcore Genelia fan - Gayu Venkat -

A-Z - The Journey

I signed up for this challenge on a whim. There were no second thoughts. Neither did I have a plan nor a theme. I didn't know if I will be able to complete the challenge. I did try to think of a theme but I decided to go with the flow. The first week was fun. I even managed to prepare some blogs in advance for the 2nd week. And then, the drill began, with a bit of work pressure and folks at home needing attention, amidst the shopping sprees and movies, I managed to complete the blogs on time.

There were some people who religiously read my blogs and gave a feedback. There were those silent readers, those who messaged me with comments and those who religiously followed only the comments section.

Over the course of this month, I gained a few followers, I followed a few and loved reading some blogs that actually inspired me for later posts. There were posts on food, yoga, weird places, stories and someone even did an entire series on a wedding.

Here's to all of you who completed the challenge, to your perseverance! Way to go! Congratulations.

And if you ask me if I'll do this again, it's a big yes.
