Editorial

For a change I do not want to write about what has been happening around. Not Metallica nor the F1 . Not even about celebrations – Diwali, Halloween or Bakri Id. Maybe I do owe a responsibility to mention that 31st October is the birth anniversary of Sardar Ballabh Bhai Patel, but I will not go into that either (my respects lie with him of course) nor can I bring myself to speak about the Guwahati Serial blasts…The wounds are still raw. Sitting in front of the laptop, at 2.30 am, I have this sudden urge to know more about you all. I would like to know more about the ones who are religiously reading our E zine ? Who are you all? Where do you come from? Do you like us? Do you occasionally spare a thought for us? What makes you smile? What’s your story? your dreams? your aspirations?  Each publication day I notice that the visitor counts shoot up 12 am on wards? Who are you all who so loyally watch us over? …And suddenly I am curious to see the faces in front of  the monitors. You make our day by your mere presence yet we have never met each other nor will we ever in probability , but some how we have made a connect. And at this moment of truth I realise that you are what makes us. Nothing can be more important for us than you all. Sometimes in our attempt to find a deeper significance we miss the obvious. At times in our bid to achieve the extra ordinary , we forget the little joys of common-ess. While most of the times in our search for the most important , we forget that what we have with us is the most valuable of all. And with great joy I have realised that we have you with us. We have crossed the mark of one lakh unique visitors just recently and that was possible  because you were with us all the while. I don’t know if we will ever be etched in history, but for you , this edition we have brought before you few pages from History. To me, history is synonymous to memories and when finally I grow old ( which I am already) I would like to have fond memories of   Fried Eye and those unknown eyes which used to make our day every publication .

    Thanks very much for your encouraging words. You made our sunday. 🙂 An eternity is too less a time to know a person I guess. But the first step has been taken and the rest will follow suit. 🙂

    • 🙂 pleasure is all mine and the feeling is mutual in my heart as i was delighted taking a random stroll on all your articles … Can’t say about others but i’m not that Complex mystery that it takes eternity to know me … 🙂

  3. Without even writing much, u mentioned every thing be it lights of Diwali eve or the sorrows of Guwahati Bomb blasts , the huge roars of Mettalica in Bangalore to the swishing waves of stylish F1s .. that is the beauty of this Fried Eye.
    So you surpassed count of one lakh viewers … Many more to come !!! my best wishes are there with you. May u grow by leaps and bounds daily. I don’t know about your desire of etching a place for yourself in the pages of History but i wish you always be the Present as people tend to forget the History but Present remain on d mind sets of them. As far as you want to know your viewer so this is really a tricky one to attempt.
    ”Who am i ?”
    This sound- so- simple-question of yours has kept many souls on the whirl. Many sages have spent their lives in the caves of Himalaya just to find out ‘who are they?’ and still clueless. A thirteen year old kid named Narendra left his home just in the search of the same question of yours when he encountered it and later on we all know this boy by the name Swami Vivekananda after he got the answer of ‘who is he’. A prince Sidhharth at the prime of his life, relinquished his all luxuries again the motto being the same and today we all bow our heads in front of Lord Buddha.
    But i am not that great and neither in the possession of such an intellect to find out the query of yours – ”Who am I ?” but parents gave me a very unique combination of name and by religion i am a Brahmin but a Warrior by my profession so that was all about me … 🙂 we would keep meeting and getting old together over here till the time i get posted to a utter solitude 🙂
    have a nice day .. Sunday Suprabhat !!!
