I was asked by a friend directly – when are you writing for my blog? Followed by a – would you like to write for my blog? — Look at the audacity but first and foremost, look at the trust and friendship bestowed upon me.
I have been asked previously to write for a few bloggers, but somehow I couldn’t find the words either to formulate or to write.
Circumstances so happened that when Anindya asked, I had a thought in my mind, actually a couple of thoughts so I wrote Colour on my post and A Silent Enemy on his.
Thank you, Anindya for giving me the honor and the space to write a post on your journal. It’s not about viewership or how many really read and comment. It is about trust, it is about respect, and it is about honoring my wishes.
His only instructions for the post were — write on any topic you so wish, I will publish it knowing it will be well written — reading these words, how could I stop myself from writing words on his.
Anindya understood the depth of my thoughts, the pain which resulted in this creation and the sensitivity needed to handle my written words. He gave me the time and the silence to share my crisis with him, without asking me a single question.
This post is exclusively to thank Anindya for being a great friend and a terrific fellow blogger
(P.S. thank you, zombie)
It’s a great article. I would love to collaborate with you, Dr. Shalini once my NEET is ovee.
I am Shalini till you see me in the hospital or operation theatre
Okay. But doctors need to be addressed. They spent 10 years becoming one.
That’s cool… Thank you…
Good luck with your exams. All the best do well
Thanks. Hope we can collab soon.
We will. Exams are more important, they are in real life.
Blogging is virtual not really needed in medicine 😉
True. But it has helped me take my mind off things.
Cool. Study hard
That’s always sweet as you are…..:)….I am humbled once again……it ‘s a beautiful post by you and your words resonate with emotions and feelings, and that is very important in any creation, the most important elements, to be expressed whole heartedly……and I like you for that…:)
Now I don’t have words to thank you back…😇
What a friend! Thanks for sharing this one… Heading over to check it out shortly.
Oooh how sweet..
Hi Jay, you really are a darling and a sweetheart. Thank you for reading my work. Every time, you take a few minutes out of your heavy book publicizing schedule to write a few words, it humbles me and warms my heart.
I reiterate I am so totally crushing on you, right now. Your fan girl Shalini
You are welcome! Friendships and connection are important to me. Sometimes it takes a little bit to get back to reading posts, but I always will make the time.
Jay, you are first person I interacted with and you hold a special corner in my heart. So I will never ever doubt your sincerity. Remember fan girl crush😉
I still can’t believe I was first. That’s an honor. 😛 Crushes are ok!
Yp, you were, in fact I didn’t even know how WP worked. You helped quite a lot. I don’t forget acts of kindness
Well, I’m glad. 🙂 And think of where we’ve made it thus far!
True that. I am always thankful for the fates and to you for this friendship.
Great write up shalini…you knoe I am already a fan of your writing…so i just love it when i read something written by you…. I wonder when i will read something again…keep it up…write more!!😁😁😄😄
Heya boyo… Thank you so much for such encouragement.. Well I wrote my first guest post so…
Yeah…and now you will write more.. many more… I know it.
I know…how was your day?
Great…slaves are not allowed to have fun…but I had a pretty good evening!!
Hahaha… That’s fine… You got your enjoyment from a sat night
Yeah…got that…now how to spend a Sunday…still planning…lot to do…so less time!!
Oh that’s nice.. I thought Sunday is for relaxing
I thought so…but now I have to cover so much…i learned today…that out of 25 attractions in delhi…i have been to only 3…i was pissed…and so i am gonna cover atleast 3 tomorrow….gonna start from 9 am till late evening!!!?
Ok cool… Sounded like dating 3 attractions 😉😉
I wish….not really…just one would be great though…i am a one woman man….but no!!
What are your plans?
Nothing.. I never plan anything.. As opportunity arises, I act
Wow….so opportunity might come…and you may have to go to marine drive or juhu beach…would you go?
Great…do you know kamless!!
Do you know about memes and do you enjoy them?
No idea about them
You should miss…. maybe you will like them…maybe you won’t!!
But its worth the risk!!
Usme kya hai, marine drive, I can drive, juhu would be very far, I will cajole him to pick me up 😉😉
And drop me back home safely 😇
Oh you would flatter someone to get something done!!😂😂
No, I don’t flatter anyone. RAJ would consider it an honor
Yeah…but you said cajole…i thought he would want to go with you himself…no need to say…he is connected through 💓!!🤗🤗
Cajole is different it is manana and flattery is chadhana… Hahaha so I prefer cajole
Ok ok…see my vocab is messed up too…i thought it can be used for both!!
Nah.. Each is different
Sri, you talk as if he is very close to me, connected.. Idhar dur dur tak kuch atta patta nahi hai uska…
Like i said… you don’t really need him…he is as you want him to be!!
All yours to make up…all yours for everything!!
Imagination is a good thing, real is another thing…
What we imagine…our thoughts are shaped the same way…we think and speak the same way…so i say…imagine more….so you can see the same way…like you rightly said…no one is perfect…we have to enjoy imperfections to make a perfect relation!!
I am ready, Raj has to be ready to meet me
I am sure…he will be…give it time…maybe you need to learn a few jokes until then!
Yea.. The knock knock ones😂
😂😂 many more types out there!!
Acha to hum chalte h!!
Chalte chalte, mere ye geet yaad rakhna. Alvida kehna 😂😂
Wow…okay…alvida alvida…eye zalima alvida😂😂
Kisi zalim se pyaar kiya tha.

Sleep tight and dream well!!
Take care shalini😄😎🤗
Good night happy night
Btw you are still up!!🤔🤔
Yp I am
Cool…one man army!!
One woman… And army ka pata nahi
I know you to be a sweet soul. Reading your about page now I see you are also of great learning. Bravo! Please update me on your mum’s situation. I love to know she’s getting better and better.
Hello Sir, thank you so much for your concern. You have a kind heart. Mom is getting better, healing has not started, but the pain is reducing so I am thankful that she is comfortable. Will keep in touch sir. I have prayed to all my Gods to make mum ok. Will go to temples with her once she is ok
You are so caring. Thank God your mother has you.
Sir, learning and knowledge is lifelong.. It’s up to us, even a child can teach us a lot. So textbook knowledge and real life knowledge are different but important aspects
You are right. Some are blessed with both. May God always bless you with both!
Thank you so much Sir. I always believe that it’s Blessings from elders and blessings from God, they save us and protect us from harm. My personal experience.
Thank you for listening to me with patience and understanding without me saying all the words. You are kind beyond words, especially in times of stress.
I am trying to be a good daughter, some days I am not. Most days I am… Will work harder to make up for days I have a break down. Parents are everything, they are my world. they didn’t let go of me when I needed them. So when they are old, I won’t let go of them. I wish more people thought that. But to each his/her own
I really wish we would have more daughters and sons thinking and acting like you. You are a role model to other young people. May your light always shine!
Sir, in India most of us look after our parents, in fact if my friends are out of town, I am the standby doctor for them in case of medical emergency, till they are back. And my friends do the same
That’s why I love India. You have lovely hearts. In some other places people don’t care much. Bravo India! I love you.
Aah… Thank you but Sir, trend is changing. Nowadays youngsters aping the west and more elderly are kept in old age home. But I am old fashioned, principled, won’t do that. I can’t even think about it.
It’s unimaginable in my country. It’s like dumping your mother or father.
In your country, are the youngsters looking after their parents??
Some do; some don’t care much. But generally they do.
That’s great. That’s what life is all about. Most people are so involved in the virtual world with Twitter WordPress Facebook, they have forgotten that until you care for people in the real world, however good you portray in the virtual world, we are judged by our actions in the real world. But with the invent of internet most have forgotten. I myself have met the so called “good people” on Twitter and elsewhere. Strange way of living
Genuineness is a lost art, sir
That’s life. Permanently changing.
Silent enemy is such a powerful poem. You’re turning into a poet it seems.
My Jeni girl, you read it… Omg omg thank you so much…
I went through that incident 5days ago. So had to write as I was so angry…
Thank you for reading
Thank you so much
Reblogged this on Die Erste Eslarner Zeitung – Aus und über Eslarn, sowie die bayerisch-tschechische Region!.
Awwww that’s sweet of you
A really good article, wish i could write this way.
It just came automatically, Michael. I also wish I could write like this always. Sometimes I can, most of the days I appear blank
Hello Doc! 😉 Great article, keep on also writing this.
Hey Michael, thank you as always. Have a great week.
Thank you for taking the time to comment on mine. I appreciate it always
Thank you Shalini, for the always great reviews. Its very good for deciding what to read next. Have also a good stress-less week inside the biggest city of India, i read. Wow! Michael
Mumbai is tiny originally made up of 7 islands but it’s big at heart. At least some of us are good people, including me 😉😇
Yes, i think so. But here in Germany, our village has only 270 citizens 😉 unbelievable big. LOL
Wow, really… That’s great. I hate crowds..
Oh, sometimes i love crowds. Here i think, i am like on Mars. 😉
I think I will like crowds if I had someone holding my hand. Otherwise not so much.
Oh, within 20 billion people, you always will have someone holding your hand.
Hahaha Michael, they all would be unwanted ones😉 but I have never held anyone’s hand
Sometimes one can be alone even with 20 billion people
Dont say you are alone? Why?
Well, I hope to find someone someday who will stay forever and not run away
not run away? LOL ???
Hahaha… Yp.. Hopefully he won’t
You have the choice. The world is open to you. Dont forget this.
Hahaha Michael, I hope so. So far that has not been happening. I hope before I leave this world, I do find
Wish you the best. You will manage it, as all the things before. I am sure. I will visit you for marriage.
Hahaha… Thank you Michael… That seems too far and I am from dark ages, very old😉
But such is life…
If there are a lot of people for conversation, i love it. Here all things are closed, and we are only two hours aways from Praha, where is so much fun.
Oh that’s cool and nice…
Have a great week… Have a happy week. I wrote a guest post this weekend my first, so I thanked my friend
Same to you, too. Dont loose your happyness.
No I will not, I will hold on to it tightly… You too
nicely done 🙂
Thank you so much… I hope so too
Why you only write about books. You can write posts on your perception about life or experience ?
If you have read this post, you wouldn’t have said this comment. Or if you had read any of my previous or my guest post, you wouldn’t have written this comment.
Haha is it so….
Actually I love interacting with people then reading their posts….Yeah I would read your at least few of your posts for sure….to correct my self…
Ideally you should…. You assumed I write only on books
Then for sure……
I will read them and comment….Them. Actually I would love to do that….But interacting with different mind gives me different feel…
Yes… But you asked me a question as to why I don’t write on life and perception, then I realised that you haven’t read the post where you are commenting
Yes I have not read it . But now I am at your blog and trying to find out post which is not a book review.
Give me some time . I am on the job.
Actually I have clicked on your link to “colour ‘ and trying to figure out it’s book review or your point of view of “colour “?
