Friends without a handshake!

  I had to take, what they say, 'a trip down to memory lane' when I was asked to nominate a blogger who have influenced or inspired me to take up blogging. And what I saw was a mirror! (OK that was rhetorical).
  I remember myself having want to start a blog and after some homework I patted myself on my back as I succeeded in doing so. I took an oath (Green lantern style!) to update my blog frequently and even did so for a few months. But something was missing which cruelly acted as a speed breaker to my habit of writing regularly (I was lazy but that's secondary).
  It was when BlogAdda gave me a chance to interact with other bloggers in the activity 'Game Of Blogs' that I found my moxie. They are the captain and 'wise' captain my team Mr.Anmol Rawat and Mrs.Preethi Venugopala. My feeling after connecting with them would be no different than Balin when he looked up to Thorin and said, "There is one(Two in this case) who I could follow, there
is one(Two!) I could call king."
  Interaction with Anmol started from the day-1 of the activity as he being the captain of the team had to be in a frequent touch with the team mates to check if no one's procrastinating. He reviews books and posts regarding any topic on which he thinks an enlightenment is necessary (And it's worth it!) His posts are enough to make anyone think twice in case if one is thinking otherwise! He has won many contests which is enough to show his skill in literature. Apart from writing he is very patient seeing that he would hold his nerve and reply me whenever I ask him any stupid thing (Last one being "Bhai does flipkart offers COD in case of vouchers?). Find the reason of his nomination here: Anmol Rawat

  The reason I got a chance to interact with Preethi was because we had a common favourite in genre, "Fantasy!". One good thing to learn from her is 'No matter how grown up you are never stop believing in Dragons, Unicorns, Wizards and Magic!'. Majority of her posts are related directly or indirectly to love showing the sort of person she is (you are what you write!!) It was because of her that our winning story was free from typos and grammatical errors.  A writer, artist, author, blogger and a mother and she plays every part perfectly. Any clarification regarding anything and she would be eager to help. Apart from her anthology 'The Second Life' her new book 'Without You' is set to release real soon, don't miss it! Find the reason of her nomination in the category 'creative writing' here: Preethi Venugopala

  The category of their nomination is tough to decide seeing the fact they could write extremely well in any given situation. These are the bloggers whom I've interacted with, who've influenced me and help me find my moxie in writing!

His Post!!

  It was not until I heard him talk about his frustration towards people (like, ****!!) taunting and blaming mindlessly on India's loss in the world cup that I decided I would beg him to write something on my blog (Yes, to increase, what they say, the 'Gethuness' of my blog). He's a film critic whose suggestions on movies at seldom on the down side and has an huge crush on a few stars like Nargis Fakhri, Raj Kumar Rao, A.R.Rehman, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and many more (Did I say few??). And now over to Ravish Chaudhary

                     No, I Won't Judge!
  Not so often does my phone vibrate many times a day, unless there is some superstar's film releasing. And all it takes is a person's appearance, a cricket match (make it post-match), an actor talking about the other sportingly, even him taking it on the same note, an arrogant cunt doing a silly chauvinistic act, a person talking just rubbish about someone for the week-long debate to start.
  No wonder, this looks absolute stupidity from the neutral audience point of view and for a minority of people who seek sense. Stupid fanaticism is the problem here. Not a single ball bowled and people already start giving the verdict, not a single game played and people already start calling the campaign shit, not a single game lost and people already start sensing/hoping for a lose, the latest one - only a single run scored and people already start sending "TRUE LOVE" forwards.
People have become so narrow minded that it only takes A LOSS for their medulla oblongata to bend both ways (calls for a rough double penetration). They never bother looking at the persons point of view. How embarrassing it gets to see their fellow fans talk wrong about them and the other. How it would be so wrong to pelt stones at their houses and their girlfriend's houses for not being able to fill their big fat bellies of trust.
Not one day did the group icons change in a month time and how one game makes almost all the groups change to pictures of Anushka Sharma calling Virat Kohli captioning "Anushka Sharma you *!" Yeah, that was supposed to be the group SUBJECT for a while. A few gentleman even blazed pictures of Anuskha Sharma for she was a part of the secret strategy that the Indians couldn't get over there at SCG. Have you people ever felt a Kookaburra ball before? Have you at least felt your balls before? No right?
One person starts the conversation by blaming Kohli and the other joins in blaming Raina, both join in after a while and start blaming the entire cricket team.
I'm posting a screenshot of one of the whatsapp groups I'm associated with.

  I remain to be the only person changing group icons and subjects even before the tournament starts, who is not blaming the team/still supporting the team along with a few people who're not so big fans of this game. And just then, I get another notification (by now I have muted all the groups). I'm reminded of me losing my cool for shitty people who will never change. One guy who shares an equal interest about this game and who's NOT BLAMING THE TEAM. Hallelujah, we're two now. Two in 1.27 billion! :D

  I wonder what's wrong with people. I have long lengthy chats with people who say the ICT sucks, I argue for no reason. I don't mind if its that English football fan who calls my country men on a spectacular run ugly or out of form. Its the people who so love this game, who even take a holiday by not taking up an exam for a match that talk shit that hurts. But I have known this by now, there is no way solution to end this stupid act. It's only on an individuals choice to support the good and the bad and there I end my blog writing hoping people will change at some time.
