TALE OF A BLOGGER (PART IV)

 

GUESS WHOSE HANDS ARE THESE!

It was on tenth March Two thousand and Seven that I wrote a poem titled

LIFE AND TIME

Which I feel like reproducing when I am keying in for my 200th “ENVIUS THOUGHTS” in this blog https://nvsr.wordpress.com

 

Oh Mortals! Time and tide waits for none

So never treat time that flees as fun

Life is short; love is long and so love all

Love knows not young or old and short or tall!

 

Life is short, death sneaks in at its sweet will

So, do things right, speak things kind, make life still

With peace and poise, joy and health all the time

Serving poor, helping old, be your pastime!

 

Beware life is precious, time is precious

Never waste life, lest sure it goes vicious

Fritter not life, waste no time, don’t compare

Pleasures the idle have that bring despair!

 

Sing in praise of timeless God and time full life

Lead life with grace to serve all and God sans strife!

 

How the time is passing on untiringly and rapidly! I am just wondering what I have achieved in my life which has as of now seen seventy four years rolling by! I am deeply introspecting whether I am standing anywhere near to the expectation of the above poem. Obvious answer, quite a long distance to traverse!

 

Yes; coming to our topic of this SUN DAY STORY , this is the TWO HUNDRETH post since the blog was launched on 28th February 2015 with a SUN DAY STORY titled “MY TRYST WITH LIFE INSURANCE CORPORATION OF INDIA. Overwhelming encouragement I got at the hands of the viewers/ readers as is seen by the ever growing “view score” has almost made me an “addict” to the blog and the blog related work!!!!!

When I started, never I dreamt that there will be viewers from 185 countries will view the writings and the views will be running to THOUSANDS! It makes me feel that a great “NOBEL PRIZE” is conferred on me!

 

Yes; as on date the total views are 13100 from 185 countries! But for this Blog statistics, I cannot even name 173 countries!!!!!! This is as at 15.00 hrs. on 3/9/15.

What are those countries; I give the list below just for me to feel proud of it:

Leaving the statistics aspect of it, it gives immense pleasure to any writer-highly intellectual or otherwise, highly creative or otherwise, big or otherwise, intelligent or otherwise! In my own assessment I belong to the “otherwise” category in all respects!

I hope to go on forever-of course so long as Lord Almighty’s grace will be with me in the form of physical and mental agility.

It helps me in taking the things in its stride-appreciated or depreciated, views increases one day and the next day it goes to negligible figure! A thousand views take one month once and the other thousand takes just 10 days! All these things must be a part of the bloggers’ life! So take it easy; do thy work dutifully and leaving the results to God as Lord Krishna tells in HIS Geethopadesa!

I do thank you all my beloved viewers and solicit your encouragement and support in this effort.

Thanks in millions! Bye for the day!
