Pouring some Blog Love :) :)

I so wanted to write this post since long. Have you ever come across a blog where its posts have been the kind that You have wanted to write? I have. And trust me it can get eerie at times. Now, as you know, we the writers have the habit of getting ideas to write upon at weirdest of times. And hence I have a habit of writing those tidbits of thoughts in my phone to be developed into full-fledged posts later. Some get developed into proper posts, while some lie in the drafts folders of your phone.

But what if I told you that you see posts written on those lines at somebody else’s blog and that too in a manner that you wanted to write. And mind you, it can be a coincidence once or twice but so many times. There has to be some connection with the blogger, isn’t it?

And I share this kinda weird spooky connection with Sreesha Divakaran who blogs at Petrichor and Clouds. And the connection I feel with her is so strong, I have named her as my kumbh ke mele mein bichhdi hui behen.

Take for instance the Halfway post that I wrote. And read hers ‘Figments Of My OverlyActive Hopelessly Romantic Imagination.' Both the posts are written in a different manner but the story line is so damn similar. I was shocked at reading this. And I type this, I am even scared that I can be blamed for some kind of plagiarism :0 But, trust me, I didn’t even know Sreesha Divakaran when I wrote Halfway.

And then I was almost awed when I read this post of hers called ‘Our Silent Game of Hide and Seek’. Because I had something on these lines drafted in my phone. It couldn’t get spookier. Wait. It can. She wrote ‘The Unintelligent Life Form’ and I was nodding my head all through the post because just like her I too was thinking why didn’t I study Literature.

She is the kind of writer who calls a spade a spade. I mean there are times when I really want to write something harsh or bitter but I hold back. Simply because I think I wouldn’t be able to handle some sensitive topics. But this girl is raring to go. For example, read these posts called Why So Furious Lets Put That Tissue In Its Place or her ‘The Backstabber’ She seems to have her teenage rebellion back in action with some of her posts ;) And while I was searching for the links for the above posts, I caught hold of this one – ‘The Big Fat Indian Wedding And Bride’. Go dig.

And Sreesha’s poetry is to be devoured. I just love her for those amazing verses. Go enjoy them here. If you are a fan of horror in a teeny weeny format, she has that too on her platter here.

And before I start crying, all I would like to say to her is ‘Sreesha, darling stop scaring me with your spooky posts :P’ Lots of love from your kumbh ke mele mein bichhdi hui behen ;) Mmmuaaahh
