Her Wings of Inspiration

I haven’t been talking blogging very seriously when I started my first blog on WordPress, The Travel Diaries as the blog on fiction, The Divine Epic came much later. I just posted something about any random journey of mine and logged out, not bothering to think further about what I had written and on who all were reading the posts. The procedure continued for quite a long time with no change at all. I wrote, I posted and I got out of WordPress, but things had to change.

My most read blog, Movies of the Soul had mostly readers from outside India, and there was almost nobody from my home country reading my posts. Most of the visitors were from the United States and there were a fine number of readers from the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates. As Jesus said, “no prophet is welcome in his hometown”, and that much I found as I searched for explanations to why I have so many less readers from India. Well, I reviewed Hollywood movies more than the Indian flicks, and that should have been the answer.

It was during my time of not knowing anyone from the blogging world that I came across NamrataΒ and her blog, A Lexical Tapestry. I hadn’t been adding people from the blogging world before that, surely not to my Facebook, and she happened to be the first person from this blogging era to add me on the social media. So she became like the only person I personally knew in WordPress, BlogAdda and IndiBlogger combined. She also came with a Liebster nomination for me with her first message.


I have been reading her posts for more than an year now, and even though I was slightly disappointed that she shifted to Blogspot from WordPress, I later felt that it was another opportunity to go through another blogging platform. Her determination and variety in writing was an inspiration for me at that time. Even though I have loved to read almost everything that she posted, I remember her post about Sir Boast-A-Lot more than the rest.

There she goes back to her favourite program, Sherlock, and explains what she calls “evil beauty” (The Vampire Bat likes that a lot). She explains the same in fewer words, but you have to love it when a post against the deadly sin called vanity works so well. Another one I remember more than the others is her poem about Ganges, and a comparison there to the imagery of a woman’s life. Then there are the points that she raises about God and His relation to man has a lot of beauty associated to it!

Yes, blogging has been more of a platform to express myself, but it has also been a place to know others, and relate to those who think alike. I have found better people in the blogging world than I have found throughout my life, and this is no exaggeration. Seriously talking more about it, there is almost nobody whom I can relate with, in my neighbourhood. People still ask about the point of blogging. During this age, Namrata happened to be that blogger who became my first inspiration. I have always enjoyed going through her ideas and having long discussions about the same. She supported me a lot during my early stages of blogging.

With her blog posts, Namrata has always inspired me to write more, even up-to the extent that I now post one write-up per day on WordPress, and also to keep trying to bring more variety into my writings. She hasn’t been writing much nowadays, and claims that she is going through a writer’s block these days – so I ask my first friend from the blogging world, my favourite engineer and the first one to comment on my personal blog The Tea Cerebration(s), to nominate her blog in any of the categories at WIN 15, and along with he same, make that grand return to continuous blogging πŸ™‚Β #YouMakeMeWIN

I’m blogging for #YouMakeMeWIN to honour a blogger who has influenced me and deserves to be nominated at WIN15.

  1. I write frequently these days. People ask me to be consistent. I do not make money out of blogging. But this blog post in an example of one thing that I can boast about blogging. I have earned true people in my life. And just as you said, I also feel that I don’t find people near me, whom I meet and talk, good enough to understand me or even think good about me.

    Sometimes, I feel that everything in life just happens. We got connected through our blogs and I never knew that this blogging kinship would get so special. It just happened. And I love the way you think. I wish I could pet the vampire bat and the vampire owl and listen to their mindful conversation all day. They are one of your greatest inventions..

    There might be a very few people who think as you do. But bloggers are fortunate enough to find them from around the corners of the globe. This post is my gift of blogging. πŸ™‚

    About your writing style I would say that it influences me a lot. It makes me imagine which I love to do. You speak of reality through your imaginary characters. This is quite an art. (You are artistic. You must accept it).

    I wish you all the best for WIN15. You have inspired me in 1000 words. πŸ™‚ The title of this post makes me feel grrrreat! πŸ˜€ And as you have said I will nominate my blog for WIN15. Continue to inspire, Teny. Your blog is an awesome place for people like me to come and read what they feel is totally logical and mindblowing. Keep blogging! Keep writing all you think you should. And last but not the least THANK YOU for this post. πŸ™‚
