The month has simply flown by! Just one more day left and one more alphabet to go!
Before I knew it though, the dreaded day had arrived! Not having prepared anything beforehand and quaking with nervousness, I agonizingly typed out my first post, A for Asthma.
I half hoped no one would notice it!
For the second post I wrote about my village bazaar, all the time thinking to myself, why would anyone be interested in this tiny, forgotten corner of the world.
But then Liz Brownlee stopped by to say, “how fascinating to have a little window into such a different life!” I was over the moon!
“I can’t wait to see what other adventures you will have to share,” added Donna L Martin, motivating me to go on, giving me a sense of responsibility about this endeavor — that there was no stopping, now that I’d begun.
As the days went by, I discovered more great writers and even better human beings — Jemima Pett, Pam Margolis, Keith Channing, Curtis Bausse, Megan Morgan, Subhmohanty, and soooo many others! There are many more I know and I hope to add you all to this list soon — now that I won’t have to write everyday and can read all of you in peace 😉
And your love letters, Gulara, will of course have to be read all over again!
So a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Damyanti for encouraging me to be a part of this madness; my friends Sukanya, Dipti, Malobee, Bhaswati, Deba, Urmi and Tuski, for tossing up interesting words everyday; and Arlee Bird for starting this whole crazy fun thing!
Today, I am surprised to be feeling more sad than relieved that we are close to the end!
But for now, we can all pat ourselves on the back for having successfully completed this challenge…well almost! Yayyy!
This post is the 25th in a series of 26 posts that I am writing throughout the month of April as part of the A to Z challenge 2016.
