The Hundie

This is my 100th post. One Hundie. One Hyundai(I drive an Elantra. I digress). It is a big number. I don’t even want to look at my old posts because I may cringe. And I may cringe with the current posts when I write my 200th.

I am going to note down the 5 things, in no particular order, that I have learnt since I started blogging.

1. You may find friends in unknown places. Like blogs. They are much, much better than having 1000 people on Facebook.

2. People may say they don’t care about what others say. But everyone yearns for appreciation. And secretly salivates for it. I am guilty. Appreciation is my drug. So keep saying nice things to me. 😀

3. Blogging about what I feel is like an overnight pimple reducing cream. It momentarily heals it. But it can’t stop the next zit. But heals it when it pops up.

4. Reading blogs motivates me to write better and to expand my 10 cubic cm by volume brain. Also, I like to read about other’s lives. Does that make me a perv?

5. I have realized I am not a feminist, but an equalist. It makes me mad when I read about men’s self-entitlement habits. But it also makes me mad when I read people jumping on men straight up and pretending that women can do no wrong, except if the woman is a mother in law. A change in mindset is needed by both sides. Don’t just rebel for the heck of it.


In other news, the parents have moved into ‘our’ home. It finally was all ready and we got the possession. They are extremely happy and I can’t wait to go home! They have sent me pictures of my name on the letterbox, in the lobby and on the front door. I want to get the last one taken off and just put the last name. The doggie has been taught to use the plants in the balcony for any pee related activities since we had a large backyard at the previous place and he will miss that. Taking him up and down the four floors, even with lifts would be inconvenient. He has always been so good about his bathroom habits that he hates when he has accidents.

We will miss our koyals, sparrows, kingfishers, bharadwajs, squirrels, goats(don’t ask) so much. House sparrows have started coming into the home, so it feels nice. Mom has found a female doggie in the complex called ‘Champi’ that gave birth to 3 pups few days back. We plan to get all spayed in the coming months. So all is okay in the world. We have our fauna.

    I totally agree when you say that people on blog are precious..more than having those lame people on FB.. people whom we don’t even know! 🙂

    Your new house description sounds nice.. put pics once u are here.. 🙂

    Have fun! Hugs!


  3. Those 5 points made absolute sense to me. Few concerned people on blog are more satisfying that a whole city on facebook. And Appreciation is the basic requirement for Art ( I would Include writing in a form of art too).
    You must be loving US but every now and then, You must be missing things that you experienced back in India during childhood.

  4. Congrats on the hundie. Loved your analogy in point no. 3.

    I am sorry, but allow me to point out that you have picked up the wrong definition of feminism. Feminism is not about favouring women over men. Feminism does not support the view that women can do wrong. Hell, NO! That isn’t true. If you believe in equality for both genders, you are a feminist. Period.

    I understand if you tell me the tag makes you uncomfortable. It made me too at one time. Please read this post. I talk about being an ‘equalist’, and not a ‘feminist’, just like you. Do read Mary and Sig’s comment, explaining to me what feminism is. Over the past two years, I have now understood feminism at a deeper level and I want to correct all incorrect notions people have..I almost wanted to delete that old post because I no longer adhere to my old views, but I am glad I didn’t. It shows how my views have evolved 🙂

    • Thanks Pepper.
      It is indeed food for thought. I believed myself to be a feminist but I get disillusioned when i see comments and blogs by people dissing men left right and center. There are some well meaning boys writing in letters to tale help from people and the letter ends up getting dissected sentence by sentence and the boy gets told gow he is a senseless tool. Thats why i started feeling that getting rid of gender in my head and perceiving a person as a person is better for me.

  5. Happy Hundie buddy 🙂 Wishing you reach a thundering thousandie soon!
    No you aren’t a perv, cause I do the same and I confirm I not one 😉
    #3 was brilliantly put!!
    Congratulations to your family on moving to new home 😀
    P.S.- I loved the name ‘Champi’ 🙂


  6. Congratulations on the ton!

    And no! Having a desire to learn about someone else’s life is not being a perv for sure.
    It just goes on to show that you are genuinely interested in knowing more about someone. Kind of agrees with the natural curiosity humans are blessed with, and you should be proud of this fact, rather than be ashamed of it.



  7. Congrats PB! As I have said many times, I always look forward to your posts. 🙂

    PS: Feminism is all about equality among the genders. Like you mentioned, ‘rebel just for the heck of it’, people twist it into being favorable towards women and in such a bad way!


I love to get notes. So, go ahead...
