I got a mail this morning, from a friend, reminding me that its been a while since I had looked towards my blog and an even
longer time since I had updated it. Not that there are many(any) readers for what I write, and come to think of it, if I had one
of 'em "visitor trackers" on my blog, it would read, "2 Visitors since May 2004". This inturn would sound more depressing,
resulting in a longer hiatus of sorts. But hey!...what the heck! ...if someone asks you to write, its ok to give it a shot.
Its been a terribly long time since I've come this way; been a long time since I wrote something. Here's making-up for the long
absence and for the words left unsaid.
It does look like I've been smitten by the travel bug. In the last couple of months I've travelled like never before. Its just
been one journey after another. I've seen places like Agra and Jaipur in North India; the Elephanta caves and Mumbai in the
west, and visited a few sites of experimental temple construction like Badami and Aihole, here in Karnataka. Its just been
travel, travel and more travel. And for once in my entire life, I feel like I'm having so much fun; I feel liberated... and it sure
feels nice. But it does worry me -- of waking up one day and realising that all this will disappear; that I'll be left with the idea
that I had had fun a long time ago; that it may never happen again, for a very long time. Just as all good things come to an
end, so will this travel spree. But I wish I could delay this feeling and this travel binge from expiring, for just a while
longer...for just a while longer....
However, looking at the bright side of things-- I've travelled close to 8,000 Kilometers in the last 2 months. I hope that I'll
finish atleast 10,000 Kilometers by the end of this year. Thats about 1/4 th the distance around the Earth, at the equator, of
course. I think its as a modest enough expectation, something to augur for in the coming days.
