Geeky posts no more

Between work and, I hardly have time left for this ‘personal’ blog. Never started this with ambitions of becoming the best known blogger on the Indi-blogosphere or anything like that. I am not that good either. I was told I would find like minded friends via this thing called blogging. And that I did, a good number of them, and so so very like minded that we have a whole big geeky site we all call our own now. Mission accomplished! However, on the subject of blogging, I do find interesting reactions to a question I have asked around – “So really, why do you blog?”. The one that intrigues me the most is – no answer, a posture of discomfort, with “why do you ask me” looks. Anyway.

Thanks all for your support (no names here, but you know) and encouragement. All this stuff – talk of infrastructure, positivity, local governance etc – all of which can summarily be rejected as boring, is where my interests are. And I will continue the talking, and as much as possible, some doing at

I am not sure whether to continue this blog as a place for pure ‘personal’ takes on other interests such as Hindi Music, Ancient History and Regionalism of our country, R&D outsourcing/offshoring ), or to just pause all this for a while till I can be sure of finding time to make at least one post every week. Let me think.

So long then. I will be back, very likely here itself in a re-invented way. Or elsewhere. But regardless, I am always around you-know-where. Just google silkboard :)

  1. Hi Pranav,

    I’m a new visitor to your blog when you have almost decided to stop blogging, or at least cut back on the frequency of your posts. This is a kind of situation we bloggers face when our main bread-earning occupation leaves us with less and less time every passing day for conviviality. In my view, it’s always good to continue with something that has a dividend to pay in future, say near future. Don’t you like to read your own old posts? Aren’t they so very nostalgic?

    Thanks and wishing you very best in your new pursuits.


  2. Thanks for your note Mr Nanda. Saw your rambles, history and computer applications, thats quite a combination. Actually, after all the developmental geeky stuff, history is my most favorite subject. Only books (not a big number anyway) I have on my shelf are all history – ancient Indian history. I am probably going to surface elsewhere with something on that subject.

    Can’t change this blog’s nature though. Better to stop it because its a personal-emotional thing, can’t see “silkboard” blog about non-developmental/traffic etc stuff. And thanks for the tip. I tried that just now, feels good to go back and read your own old posts!
