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!

Many years ago, when I lived in Dublin, I met someone nice and started dating. I wasn't serious, I just thought we could have nice interesting discussions about India, which I found absolutely fascinating, as I was working in the Embassy of India back then. I had no intention of getting attached with a foreigner, with all the attendant cultural problems. I was happy living in Ireland and the idea of marriage couldn't have been further from my mind. We both thought we could just keep things in control. One day, after a lot of emotional turmoil and denial, it hit us both that we were in love. Truly. Madly. Irrevocably. To the point where we couldn't live without each other. I'd known about the Indian system of arranged marriages and when it occurred to me that he would probably be married off by his family as soon as he returned to India, I felt physically ill at the thought. We are both tenacious and patient people. We realised that bringing our two worlds together

The Tale of One Kitty

The cat..... Those who know me already might say that they didn't know I had a cat.  I didn't, you know! Our dog, Duggu is such a handful, I didn't think we could take on another pet. But a few months ago, a beautiful cat (whom we eventually named Puggle)  arrived. She's not really ours..... Nope! She's someone else's cat who just went on what the Aussies might call a walkabout. My younger daughter Riya found her on the roof of our house, a pretty calico (three-coloured) cat. Riya was instantly smitten. Some milk was fed to the little creature and the deal was sealed. Puggle has been a regular visitor to our house ever since. And two days after she arrived, in mid-May, she gave birth to four kittens. We'd had no idea the kitty was enceinte. So what did we do? What can you do? If a single mom landed on your doorstep and gave birth in your house, what would you do? Try to help, obviously. As the cat bore no identification and had been roaming the colony unst

A Blogging Guru

This is what a guru looks like - well something like it! Back to blogging I'm back at my blogging again. Three blogs at the moment. Not bad really, is it? My favourite blogging adventure was my original expat blog, which, unfortunately, I had to close once I was no longer able to blog anonymously. Because it was what some of our US based friends might call 'way TMI.  This is my general blog, MBB is my book blog and My East/West Life is my current attempt at blogging about life in India for an Irish wife. Then there's the experimental writing blog on Wordpress....and you know, can you believe I've been blogging for ten years now? Yes, that's right. But I've taken a looooong hiatus from blogging recently owing to the loss of a beloved family member. And I've stood back from the blogging a little. And then I came back. And amazingly, I've discovered stuff I never knew before. New discoveries I discovered that owing to Adsense ads, I've
