Sahasra is the proud owner of these thoughts. Since most of my content is from my brain, i guess i won’t have any copyright issues. And when i copy, i for sure will let you know and credit you. See, I am one honest copy cat.
I am not that confident enough to go post my blog address on my Facebook and all, but i can say that i am in the process of achieving that confidence. I know, there is a long way to go. But the best part is, i am trying my best and i will never quit. My writings may not be that great, my language may be weak, but i’m not going to stop. That’s just because i don’t break easily, i am stubborn and have never been a quitter and will not be in future. As i said, i am in the process of reaching my best point. So bear with me and my writings.
One important thing is that Sahasra isn’t my real name. It is a name that is really close to my heart and hence became my pen name. For now, i choose to be anonymous. Well, not forever, but at least till i gain enough confidence to go public. 🙂
And i thank you all in advance, for patiently going through my blabber. I may never meet you in real, even if we have met, we may never know. But i still am happy that i am here and had a chance to tell the world about me and my feelings. I am happy that i got to know all of you and had a chance to know your thoughts. I consider reading an absolute pleasure and writing really difficult and time/energy consuming process. But i still wanted to give it a try and so here i am.
Thanks for trying to know me and thanks for trying to ride with me on this amazing journey.
With lots of smiles 🙂 and Love
You will find your way yaar Just a little risking taking and exploring,…And you will reach the place you want to
🙂 Thank you paatiamma.

Hi Sahasra, I have nominated you for the Liebster award. It is just a fun thing, and is entirely up to you if you want to play along!! 🙂 Great having you as a blogging friend! 🙂
Whoops, forgot the link…here it is 🙂 http://theoldfellowgoesrunning.com/2014/11/05/the-liebster-award-a-network-for-new-bloggers/
🙂 Thanks for choosing me for the nomination Carl. That’s a really nice feeling. You made my day and thanks to you, my day started with a big smile. You guys out there are really inspiring to lazy bugs like me. I’m glad i found you people out here blogging. I wish, inspiration is just like caffeine that just kicks in instantly. 🙂 But since it is not, i will keep working on making it effective. Thanks again 🙂 Have a nice day.
You are most welcome Sahasra.
You are a great writer, and am so glad we have connected. 🙂
Congrats on stepping into the world of writing and blogging. May you grow, enjoy and make many new friends. Thanks for joining my blog. Blessings, Brad
Thank you Brad. 🙂
Hi Sahasra, hope your day is going well. Just wanted to say I nominated you for the Harmony and Peace Award. Details are found on this post http://theoldfellowgoesrunning.com/2015/01/25/three-inspirations-two-awards-one-awareness-month/comment-page-1/#comment-593.
Hopefully this will bring more visitors your way. There is no obligation at all whether you carry the award forward. It is yours to keep! 🙂
Thank you so much carl. Yepp, I am doing well now. All thanks to my mum. 🙂
I am actually feeling guilty for accepting but not doing the award posts. I will have to finish the old award posts first if I have to do the current one.
Thank you for thinking that I deserve an award like this. 🙂
So glad you are doing better! 🙂
Hi Sahasra, I have nominated you for the Liebster award! In order to accept it, check this blog: https://polomi.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/the-liebster-award/. Congratulations and I hope you have fun accepting the challenge just like I did 🙂
Thanks polomi. Not sure if I willbe able to take it ahead or when I’ll posting it but I will do it for sure sometime.
Thanks again for the award.
Hi Sahasra, I love your name. And you have a nice blog here 🙂 Regarding the fear of taking it to FB, worry not! It took me 4 years to do that. Just do it. Don’t wait for long is what I’d say. 🙂
Thank you for all the love and support Ranju. I found you through the book review and really liked it. And about me going public, i think being anonymous helps me.Though i seem like the don’t care type, deep down i think i seek approval. I want to get rid of that stupidity within me. And till then, i cannot risk going public for the sake of my need to talk and be free. This place lets me be the way i want and to not care about what others think or feel of me. 🙂
Lovely knowing about you… What your name is? What you do? Is not very important, it is who you are, as expressed by your writings that is important. All bloggers occupy a world of thoughts… This is so much like the movie ‘Matrix’ where wordpress and blogger are the real world for us, and our lives are largely the ‘Matrix’…
I googled for the meaing of ‘Sahasra’ and it came out to be ‘a new beginning’…. so this is a new beginning for you… FB is generally over-hyped and something that is a necessary evil… I use it as a platform to keep in touch with friends whom I cannot be bothered to phone or meet 😛 and earlier I used to post photos there… I still do but rarely…
Anyway, after another long comment 😀 bidding you good night 🙂
Thanks Santosh. Except for the handsome Keenu Reeves, i was never really interested in the Matrix and so knew very little but when i think of wordpress, i get a strange feeling as i know many people through their thoughts spread out for everyone to read. You almost bare it all and yet you can be anonymous. This is something that works wonderfully with me. 🙂
Sahasra actually means “a thousand” in Sanskrit. But as every other word does, it also has a different meaning when in usage, and somehow it became “a new beginning”. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
I know this reply is months after your comment. I’m sorry for that as I just missed it somehow and now thought it’s better late than never. 🙂 Good night and take care.
Hi Susie, I have a quick question about your blog. Could you please email me when you’re free? Thanks!
Are you sure this is the blog you wanted to comment on? I’m Sahasra. Anyways, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My guess is that you are looking for Susie Reece.
Here’s her site “http://susiereece.com/”. You can contact her over there.
Love your observation: “I consider reading an absolute pleasure and writing really difficult and time/energy consuming process”. You just couldn’t be more right. I keeping hoping the writing will get easier. It hasn’t happened … yet. But some days are better than others. Thank-you for reading and following my blog.
🙂 And yes, some days are just better when you don’t even think about writing anything but it just flows. I wish it was the same everyday.
You have a really nice blog out there and I’m not yet done stalking yours. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂
Thank you coming over and sharing your thoughts. Please keep visiting and have a great day Jill.
Oh, so glad you like my blog! And yes, I’ll be back to read more of yours 🙂
interesting blog you have… you write well
Wow.. never knew that a compliment early in the morning gives this big a boost 🙂 Thank you Rajiv.
You are most welcome!
Do you have a blog or something similar? Just got curious.
This is my blog
I now know. Earlier during the day, i was checking on my laptop and clicking on your name only led me to the Gravatar page and nothing from there.
Found you when I came back my mobile.
Thank you for liking my blog post http://gringopotpourri.com/2014/11/13/germany-a-love-affair/. Best of luck with your blog. Remember that the blogging community is a supportive group. Keep up the good writing!
Thanks a lot scott. I heard a lot about berlin and Germany from friend and they just created a curiosity in me towards the country and hence the interest in anything related. Yours is one nice post that just made me more interested.
Thanks for all the support.
Hey! I have a quick question about your blog. Could you please email me when you get a chance? Thanks!
Sure. Gimme your email address.
Or else you can mail me here. email@example.com
First, thanks for the FOLLOW 🙂
Second, I am glad to know you are not a quitter, so I will wait for that time when you’ll finally reveal who you are 😉
I should return the thanks hey. Not sure how I found yours(Carl’s blog i guess), but loved it after reading a few posts and had to follow.
And, even I am waiting for the day when i will be ready to come forward. My friends and family will be surprised and shocked as well. 🙂 😛
Or you’ll be surprised they suspected it all along 🙂
Yeah, that too. A shocking reaction would be,”huh, I’m already following it all these years!”. 🙂
LOL!!!! Now THAT would be a pleasant surprise!
You have a beautiful blog. Bye
Just read your FRIENDS OR NOT post. Unfortunately, comments disabled. But I’d like you to know I know exactly how you feel. Do move on. If they’re like that, they don’t deserve your friendship. Smile, wave, say something nice. That’s it…STAY POSITIVE!!!
But you know, it just feels bad to even think about it. Thanks hey.
You’re welcome. Like I said, I know how you feel. Hang in there.
I saw that you reposted one of my posts and began reading yours. I am blown away. You have a gift and a vulnerability that is very unique and very special. We seem to be traveling somewhat of a similar path. Continue to write, continue being brave. I am 52 years old and can promise you that it is never too late to take flight.
Thank you. I personally find my posts depressing and cheesy 😀.
I’m a bit scared of the unknown and thats how i ended up on your blog. I wanted to find out how it is like to be in this phase and what to expect. I’m sad that you had to go through that pain, but I’m glad that you shared it with the world. Thank you so much for doing that. I know it takes a lot to share pain. But it helps many like me, considering the fact that there is very little sensible and non-judgmental thought available around.
I’m not sure what you saw in me, but I’m afraid to face this world and hence hide behind a pen name. Maybe, that adds to my vulnerability. But i can only be thankful. One day, when I get really better at it, i will be able to put my words to better use.
You underestimate yourself. I did for years so I can relate. Your words have power and they are special and authentic because they are yours. If writing under a pen name gives you freedoms you’re otherwise too afraid to explore, then so be it. Take those freedoms. I wish I had written about what I was going through sooner. I was afraid. But, look at you putting yourself out there. You should be proud.
It’s a scary thing to feel the things you’re feeling. I should know – I felt that way for 26 years. I’m glad my blog resonated with you and hope it helped. Stay in touch. We sound like we’re a lot alike.
