On Meeting new people...

Whenever I meet new people... mostly online nowadays... and get new friends request on fb...the first thing I wud check is the person's knowledge of language ... Being born n brought up in India ( i'm not sure if thts the reason), I am always impressed by a person who speaks English flawlessly.... its not that I am this idiot who thinks knowing English n speakin it well is everything...but sumhow i feel it gives me an idea of the person... i like ppl who spk their mother tongue fluently too.. but once i get a friend's request with a personal msg in broken English... i do reject it instantly...

The next thing tht can make a good first impression is the books sumone reads... if it suits my taste.. or I find they r books worth reading.... it definitely makes them move up a notch on my "What I think of u" meter...I esp like it if they read the same books as me, which makes me feel we hav sumthin in common...

I love to socialize... i Love meeting people, making new friends...

"Make new friends and keep the old, one is silver and the other gold"

What if God just decides to take me away one day??? then all I wud have to treasure would be the memories of the time I spent and the happy moments I shared with others...

When you post sumthing on ur blog... every blogger in the world... really does tht with a wish tht people read the post... n comment on it... n a comment on my post really makes my day :)
Makes me put on a stupid grin tht stays all day through....

*** Sigh**** melts my heart everytime I see that kid on your display pic... Really cute..

So the good English speaking types impress you? Yo, Shakespeare, dude whatchya doin up in those skies man?. Come down ye, and sweep Lakshmi off her feet will ya? :-P

Sorry about that. I can only write nonsense :-)

But good to know that there are girls like you who like and appreciate people with good language skills. There aren't many in your breed, I can tell you :-)

And I can understand how you feel about the comments thing. I'm sure when the word spreads around about your blog, you'll certainly invite more readers and more comments. Your blog is serene and beautiful, and I'm sure the accoloades will come flowing with time :-)

But no matter what, never make the mistake of judging or benchmarking your blog by the number of comments you receive or the number of followers you get to have. Always trust in creating good content - there is no substitute for that. At the end of the day, blogs should be written for the love of writing. Period.

P.S : One sureshot way of getting yourself noticed on the blogosphere is by actively visiting others' blog and commenting on them. It works. That's how people get to know you and how nice your blog is :-)

P.P.S: I never care about commenting on blogs because I've got a lazy bum.

P.P.P.S: Oh that kid again... *Sighhhhh* :-)

I am a man who cannot resist rescuing damsels in distress. So to fulfill your wish of comments ,here's mine.

Also as for language...

Urban mode: "Ey yo gurl! Wassup wid it?! Gurl yo so fine, you can be my side anytime! Come get jiggy wid' me!"

Classic Flirt mode:"Pray take me, to be your consort. I pledge the world and my heart to you. Henceforth only mellifluous utterances extolling thy divine grace and breathtaking beauty shall escape my tongue!"

Hokies! That's enough charm for now.
I'm 'following' you.
"Wherever you go I will be there"
Jaam Jam Gaadha Jaamine paranjatha :D
Keep blogging!

i guess u have just entered the blogosphere, tension gheo nakos (translation: dont take tension)...just as parikshith baba said one way of increasing comments is to comment on other's blogs. it does work.

BTW i agree with that broken angreji thing, never mind the fact that my own english is maha bakwaas :)
