My New Blog www.takeme2eccentricity.blogspot.com
I wrote my last paper for the fourth Trimester on Thursday, Sept 11- Legal Framework of Employment Relationships.
And somehow, throughout the test.. for some reason, I just kept getting flashes of how I will give a closure to this blog as well.
It was a definitive thing: I will sign off. And I just couldn’t wait to do it.
Not quite sure why.
1. The fact that I think I have been sharing more of my mind in this blog than I had initially intended to. And I really believe that some things are sacred beyond all reason. And deserve the dignity of an audience that will do justice to the thoughts.
Doing ‘justice’ must not be interpreted as blind concurrence with the ideas proposed. No!
It means registering your opinion, however contradictory it may be, in a mature, dignified manner, allowing for a debate or a dialego.
Yes, call me fiercely arrogant. An arrogant little prat, and stupidly so. A hopeless, clueless, confused little 21 year old, struggling to make sense of the world around her, and probably doing a very shoddy job of it.
It’s a democracy, right?
I can paint a fish with wings, in dark shades of purple and shocking red. And I can store it in my vault, as a precious piece of art, and show it only to those I wish to.
D’oh, yes! I just almost read the Law (the Exam, people! ) .. and I know that the Constitution does not prohibit me from doing that. :D
So, here you go, I CHOOSE my readers. And my readers Choose me.
Allows me to write more freely ( else, I’ll suffocate to death :( )
And allows people to make a choice over whether they wish to read my trap or not.
Yep, utter crap it is… what I write sometimes. But this is my calling in life.
The optic through which I view the world.
And I wish to use it the way I’d like. Just as any Tom, Dick or Harry may choose or reject to invest their time in reading it.
2. I have observed unabashed plagiarism from this little space I’ve got here. Over the past many months.
I mean, not ‘inspired writing’ (which a small fry like me will embrace with open arms, and with due gratitude!)- but unacknowledged use of ideas, phrases etc, in published writing – without even a tacit, slightest acknowledgment of readership of my writing space.
Not even in a private, personal manner.
PS. For the record, this does not apply to those who used my posts with due acknowledgment of the fact of having lifted it from ‘somewhere’. Not at all .
And the matter rests.
3. The ‘closure’ thing had also to do with the fact that I thought that blogging was eating into too much of my time – which I desperately needed to use for my career building (hey, don’t snigger, arpita!- m serious! I need a job :-( :P )
Anyway, as I approached the last half an hour of the exam, I designed a brilliant way of going about it.
Here, I shall invite those whom I know in person, and whom this blog owes a lot for their sincere, loyal and affectionate readership *bows gracefully* :
A special note of Thanks to Meggs, Sumeet, Meet and Arpita.
These people get a direct invitation from me, to read this blog henceforth.

Thanks also, to all those who have been following this blog on and off, even if without being professional ‘readers’ :P – I welcome your criticisms, ur jibes etc and thank you too .. for being nice :)
However, I shall not take the liberty of inviting your readership. I leave the choice with you.

As for any stray reader who might have just stumbled upon this blog for the first time, by chance , and wondering where this blogger girl is going with this ::
Have a nice day, and happy blogging.
In case, you might want access to the new blog (hypothetically speaking!) – maybe after having read the posts on this one, please do leave a comment requesting for an invite, with your email address. Also, I would require a brief statement of purpose (SOP!) –
Why do you wish to read this blog?
- What do you think of this blogger’s writing?
- How/ why do you think my blog can add value to You and your time?
And/ OR anything else,
Your SOP will help me figure whether my blog and your readership will be able to do justice to each other.
I know this may sound crazy- or whatever :P
You think I’m kiddin’ when I say I live in eccentric-city! Nopes :D
PS. Since all the comments will be moderated here, your SOPs or requests shall not all be published, but only read by me.
There, you have full confidentiality :)
