My first post

I dedicate this blog to Zephyr of  Cyber Nag for inspiring me to start it, my son Siddharth, for starting it for me and my daughter, Mudita for giving me joyous moments by her simple yet thoughtful acts.

It was not easy for me to start on computer. Initially, I was so busy with my children growing up. Moreover, the comp was not available to me, thanks to my son. Then one day, I realised, that my children have left for hostel and I had all the time in the world and very few constructive things to do. And then my children told me to try my hand on the comp. I felt like a one year old child trying to learn ‘how to walk’. Interestingly the two angels which took my help to learn to walk were providing me support this time. My son like a strict tutor, getting irritated with my repeated mistakes and often throwing up his hands in despair. And my daughter, like a patient mother- teacher explaining it to me and encouraging me to try once more. Believe me, it is a very interesting journey for the three of us, proceeding with bouts of laughter on my mistakes. And all this time, my hubby ( he is a man of few words ) keeps smiling.

I  have named my blog “Kachha Lemon”, because, I am a beginner and would like to enter this field as ‘kachha limbu’. Then why ‘lemon’ and not ‘limbu’? I know this question will be put to me, sooner or later. Actually, I wish to write in English and Hindi, both.

I know I will make many mistakes. I am equally sure, I shall improve with your help. Not only will I look forward to your comments, I will appreciate your constructive criticism.

  1. welcome to blogging ma’am 🙂

  2. Whoa Pratibha! What a wonderful start to your blog! Trust me, I will soon be taking pointers from you. And I am glad to know you will be bilingual. though I might not comment in Hindi, I would read all of them and comment in English. Way to go. I am sure your kids must be damn proud of their mom. And thanks for giving me credit, though I haven’t done anything except stoking your interest in writing. We would have missed a good writer otherwise. 🙂

    All that this ‘Raw Lemon’ needs is some salt, Methi seeds and oil, and being kept in the sun, for it to be converted into an item that is of prize value.

    I wanted to comment on it in the same tone; but so many thoughts came to my mind after reading it that I’m not sure if I could do justice to my thoughts my penning them down in 5 mins.; not to mention being fair to the bold frankness that you wrote with.

    Often we fail to see the positive side and tend to focus on negativity and failures. It is not the failure but the fear of failure that causes heart burn. Further, we tend to get confused between (healthy) anxiety and and fear /being scared.
