A Post a Day

Some of my readers may know that I was participating in TMAST recently.  That's Tell Me A Story Tuesdays, sponsored by Elizabeth Harper of Gifts of the Journey.  With the use of a selected photograph and topic sentence, I wrote seven short stories over a period of seven weeks and published them on my Wordpress site Adventures in Fiction.  I thoroughly enjoyed this project.  But now, Elizabeth has revealed that she is taking a break from TMAST for a while.  I think I'll continue with my short story writing, however.  It gives me a lot of enjoyment.

I'm also privileged to be a member of the Loose Bloggers Consortium.  Every Friday, ten bloggers includingme, and (in alphabetical order) Ashok , Conrad , Grannymar, Helen, Judy, Magpie11  Maria, Marianna and Ramanaji ,  an informal group of bloggers from the USA, UK, India and Canada, publish posts simultaneously on a common topic, then visit each other and comment.  It's very enjoyable.  (Please refer to last Friday's post for an example!).

I've signed up for membership of a website called National Blog Posting Month  (NaBloPoMo). The 'National' in the title means American as in USA, but the website assures that it is quite international.  The commitment is to post every day for a month.  Well, I enjoy a challenge.  Let's see where it leads!


  1. I wish you well with it, gaelikaa.


  2. I did Nablopomo a couple of years ago. Good luck with it. I'm looking forward to your daily posts.

  3. gaelikaa-I responded to your fb mail. I do want to continue with Tuesday's. Check out my reply and see what you think. I'm also trying for a blog a day, but didn't start until today!

  4. Where do you find the time to keep so many blogs going. I fine one difficult enough at times.

    I wish you luck with the projects Gaelikaa.

  5. Ambitious and stimulating plans. Have a good go and have a lot of fun with the writing.

  6. I found a guy in Calcutta who sells vegetarian hot dogs, and MAN, they're soooo good....:))))

  7. That does sound like an interesting project. I'll have to check it out, maybe she'll continue it in the future. And what an interesting idea about the group of bloggers meeting every Friday. I'd be interested in giving that a try...almost like guest blogging. At least you'd have guaranteed commenters!

  8. cool! it might be difficult to keep up with it - you know, Time flies! You won't notice how days pass... But you can do anything! I know! Best of Luck, Mom!

Kipling Got it Wrong! Or Eastern and Western Culture - Reflections

What Is Culture?
I’m opening this blog post with a question. What is that elusive concept which is commonly known as ‘culture? Culture is way of life. How we live. What our values are.  Our customs, attitudes and perceptions. And also, I suppose, how we express ourselves in art through, such as music, dance, theatre and cinema.  It’s quite a comprehensive area and not too easy to define, really.

The Journey
I was born in what is commonly known as ‘the west’. I lived in Ireland for the first thirty years of my life. When I was thirty, I married my husband and came out to India to live here with him. That was the beginning of an interesting journey, which is still evolving. I must have had some east/west comparison stereotypes in my head. But in India, I found that the people I met had huge stereotypes in their heads about what they called ‘western culture’ and ‘western way of life’. Not long after I arrived in India, I was struck by the number of people who said things to me like ‘in the …

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.
