A new beginning!

Hello people!

I am writing a post after a year.


So much has happened. Brexit. Trump. Rio. Brangelina. You get the gist, right? It was a tough year, and brought out the introvert in me. There were times when I felt like a silkworm, weaving cocoon around myself, thread after thread.

And I missed the blogosphere so so much! And you wonderful people, and your wonderful posts. Although I did sneak a peek now and then Continue reading “A new beginning!”


The diary of a Valentinophobic

With the Valentine week lurking round the corner, waiting to pounce on the hapless and the fortunate alike, I thought it pertinent to share a humorous post on the travails of the vanquished in this week.
Does it ring any bells? 🙂

Maze Odyssey: The diary of an ecophobic

Have you ever seen a group of new born puppies? You would’ve, definitely. Those cute little creatures are apples of the eyes of all those around them and draw many an ‘Awws’ from the feminine counterparts of simple hard working beings like me. But amidst all the mind numbing and breath taking coyness and playfulness of these wonderful creations, those with a discernible eye wouldn’t fail to notice one or two of the kind who would be distant geographically and emotionally from the rest. They would be alone, toying with a piece of cloth, or digging with an eagerness fit for goldmine workers, or just lying down basking in the sun, snapping at any incoming flies.

A chance encounter…

This is a small part of my slightly bigger repertoire.


I locked my room and hurried out of the block. I had just woken up. It was 9.15 by my watch and I was 15 minutes late for the class of Prof. A.K. Jain.

Day Four: Give ‘Em What They Want

Namaste 🙂

As per today’s assignment, I did a basic stat analysis of my blog.

Here are my revelations:

  1. I have been a slow starter in blogging with best views ever at 87. I don’t mind that. I started walking and talking much later than normal children. Heck my parents were worried to the core about me till then. 😀 And I turned out fine. 🙂
  2. Most viewed post is https://pranjalsrivastavawordpresscom.wordpress.com/2015/10/25/trip-to-dhauladhars-kasol-and-beyond/. Because I used Facebook & Quora to promote it.
  3. The like/view ratio is best (almost 100%) for https://pranjalsrivastavawordpresscom.wordpress.com/2015/12/09/427/. Because the viewers themselves were bloggers. So you know, blogging etiquette.
  4. My favorite, and oldest post https://pranjalsrivastavawordpresscom.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/valentine-week-phobia/ wasn’t viewed much as earlier my blog wasn’t easily navigable.
