….A new beginning!!

Manor Of The Ardent -Quite an absurd place it seems on the onset…doesn’t it? Lets try and decipher what it can be? What is it? A Manor..a villa…simply a place …a gathering of ardent people.

Why Ardent? Well, just because obstacles fail to deter these people from doing what they like…Ardent… because each one of them is driven by passion…Passion for Love…Love for the country and its people…Passion for Music…Passion for travelling…Passion for Science…Passion for Living life less commonly…So… this place will witness an extravaganza of sorts.

But still, what is it? In a smaller, understandable form..its a collaborative blog. And I feel it’s the least we can say about it…as it is much More than that… Its an assemblance of bloggers from all genres, with an amazing fetish for sharing of knowledge and experience . Its a commemoration of Love and Respect…for people…for their work…for the admiration of their work…for the longing…for the sake of not missing their effervescent pieces of art…more commonly known as posts.

Its more than a collaborative blog. A venture…unseen…A lovechild of people who, till very recently hadn’t, even met. A befitting example of organizational bond developed amongst its associates by an intranet blog. A community of people who know each mostly through a very effective medium of blogs, who have now ventured out into the open with their plethora of experience and knowledge…into the manors of a wider audience.
So…How did they come together? A common background of working or having worked for the same organization and being in an unforseen bond.
14 people…of varied experience…of varied interests…of varied knowledge…of varied calibre…driven by varied passions…come together to start this extravaganza…which in its first week of conception has set records and standards of the highest levels…Just a small example of this claim:
Visits (total in 8 days) : 1700 (approx.)
Average visits per day : 200 +
Total Posts : 45
No. of comments : 500 +
Visitor locations : 300 (approx.) from all around the globe
Amazing? Not yet! As the wonderous potential this space holds is tremendous. One writer is on the verge of starting an All India Trip on foot for the mere Love of this Country – India..Another one is an already an acclaimed blogger for his travel, advertisements and consumer review blogs…One writer is brimming the release of his Music Album, One has already released One…Another is a movie database…One is very health conscious…Another one has a passion about bicycling…and the list goes on…and on…This post is actually too small to describe even a single one of the writers…
So…what should you expect in the space? Everything! Travelling…Movies..Music…Reviews…Books…Humour…Politics…Society…Personal Statements…Experiences…Diversity…In short …the space will be a wholesome infotaintment.
Now…what are you waiting for?…Go!…Get hooked and book a permanent space in the Manor! 😀 😉

Sitting on the Moon, Watching Planet Blue!

Savithhhhhhhhhhaaaaaa =) hehe… you said it!! Now that’s what we’d call you as.. 😉 heheh.. just kidding. 😛

Okay.. so Savita passed the baton to me, but I’m sure I’ll try my best to blow the flames off with the gibberish all over.. 🙂

1. What is your passion?

Besides the fact that I live through music (may be you know how if you’ve come across my blog posts earlier regarding this addiction, a beloved obsession), I’m kind of a speed maniac as well, riding my bike genrally at an average speed of 70-80 km/h. 😉 Have a deep interest in Physics, and most of the science stuff in general, nature. I love to fly… would want to sky-dive and try “bird-man” once in my life.

2. Cinema and Politics?

I adopt a lot of imagination, motivation build aspirational dreams through movies.. so, does that help make it clear my choice of movies!?? 🙂 Used to love Sci-Fi a lot from childhood. Politics, yes, deeply interested in it and aspiring to contribute all I can in making our nation, and the world, a better place. Would love to join Nafs in this endeavor some day.

3. One good thing you want to happen in India, for people – Long term

Bring back the old glory – my golden sparrow. :’-) Taksha Sheela… Nalandaa.. Yoga… Spiritualism…. the west is adpoting our tradition and we’re moving away from ourselves, our true soul.
Good things I’d want to witness within my lifetime… Uplift the poors, develop the villages, start with education & infrastructure. A nation-wide knowledge TV accessible to anyone, which broadcasts knowledge off all the fields. Not just another GyanDarshan, but highly sophisticated knowledge channel that aims to enrich the lives of every indian by providing the right information, a channel that speaks the truth, is NGO-funded, aims to bring TRUTH out, and make every indian feel proud of what we are capable of, how well we are doing, and where we would want to go.

4. One good thing you want to happen for yourself – Short term

Neither hastily take any job… nor procrastinate my decision till death. I’d want to live my dreams… each of them… one by one… starting with music. 🙂

5. One good thing you want to happen for this community of bloggers – Long term

We reach the acme of the goals we’ve set for ourselves, continue sharing the life as we live through, and some day in future meet again in a grandeur intellectual meet that aims to make the world a better place… do something for the world.

6. A frank thing you want to say about one of the bloggers here.

Nafs – I like his guts, but doubt his path! 😛 But I’m DAMN sure he’s going to set a good example for all of us.
Abhishek – I love his intellectual quotient and love for physics and hunger for knowledge.
sanket, hashir, deepak – bunch of coolness.. 😉
All of us – together – can do something really great and helpful to the world. Hope we do so soon..

7. Flirted?

Always… but never. 🙂 I keep on looking.. like a wolf towards a moon (hope you’ve heard that story). Won’t utter a word though, never. But I genuinely admire the ones I like. Some pure admiration with clean intentions and emotions, thats it. 🙂

8. Loved?

In school.. had a close friend… (in std 6. 😛 ) but we changed school… and she disappeared.. .and I still miss her… is that love?

8. Loved?

Same story continues in school days… plenty of times… so CCP.. read.. re-read..

8. Loved?

And then… nothing in college – graduation.. 😉 friends and music kept me busy… 😛

8. Loved?

In masters.. hmmmm… hmmmmmmm… may be!? 😛

8. Loved?

Came across so many lovely miracles that took my breath away or skipped a heartbeat or two… 😀
Just a stare… then a glare… and I’m lost in all despair……… Listen You’re beautiful (by James Blunt)…. this one to all the beautiful girls in the world… 🙂

8. Loved?

Well… There’s a friend I like a lot now… but don’t know if thats love? :-/ 😀 😉

8. Loved?

Hmmm… Okay so point is … I’m single and looking… dying to fall in love (and then know that that’s the feeling they call love… and know that I’m drowning in it..  feel it, live it…  😉 )

8. Loved?

Nimiety of nostalgia covers my heart as I think of this word. Could never figure out what it is, and if I had liked someone, was it love or what.. BUT, I can say for sure.. I love my dad, family, my friends, India, nature, Universe.. 🙂 (seriously… when I think of the greatness of this universe.. I feel equally good. 🙂 ) And yeah… I love music for sure. 😀 Well, I’m very very VERY V-E-R-Y emotional person… you see.. O:-) So bear with all these blah-blah, and my search for THE ONE continues.. 😛

9. A country you want to visit?

A Country? Well there are many I want to… specially UK (again and again), Ireland, Pakistan, Special Places – Polar regions, Mount Everest, Egypt Pyramids, Amazon forests, and every natural beauty here on earth. 😛

But my dreams have outgrown reality… and I wish I could sit on the moon once and look back at the earth.. then mars.. or Europa?!? 🙂 Ohh I love this universe.. 😛

10. Belief in God?

I don’t know!!!!! At times I’m atheist, at times I’m not. Depends… 😉 😛 lol… but lately I’ve moved much more away from God, specially due to the rigid and mindless traditional approach set towards spirituality by the society. Where does the conscience get to play its role!!???

11. One thing you would surely do to uplift this poor country.

Wish I could continue adopting the child I did.. 😦 But, may be, in future, for sure I’ll try to contribute in changing/establishing a better education system..

12. One secret about you.

I’m afraid to die for the fear of not being able to know what happens afterwards to the conscious world, the universe. Becasue I want to know every secret the universe beholds, and witness all of its miraculous happenings!! Also afraid to have realised at the end if that wasn’t the life I wanted to live!!! To face the what-ifs at the end.

13. Unforgettable memories…

When I lost my dad in std. 5.
The naughty, possessive, cute and charming girl who became my friend in std. 6. And after a year or so, never appeared back! No where!!
Witnessing earth-quake of Gujarat, its havoc, and the aftermath.
Lunacy that led to Cleansing and Purging in the riots. 😦
Some of the many ethereal experiences.

Phhew… finally I’m finished. 😛 So…. who’s next? VATSAL – hold the baton and carry it forward! Hope there are some flames still left in it… And your time starts now… 😀

P.S. Whoever put the VPP category here… thanks! 😉 Made it easier to sort. 😀 ROFL..
