Our doubts are traitors, And make us lose the good we oft might win, By fearing to attempt.- William Shakespeare
It was on April 16th last year that we published our 1st post. The idea of a blog had been germinating in my mind for a while but I had kept postponing starting one thinking that it was a bridge too far. But Jaya coaxed me into overcoming my initial hesitation and has since been assiduously taking down my ramblings thus enabling me to bask in reflected glory. Our frequency of posting has come down a bit in recent times because Jaya is doing some online work which has commensurately reduced the time available for blogging.
Blogging has made me read some of the old books in my collection and links that I had saved long back. Quoting from them has enabled me to kill two birds with one stone - firstly, it means that I have to dictate fewer sentences and secondly, I can indicate what I read nowadays. I am glad that the links that I had saved on a whim have not gone waste.
It is said that behind every successful man there is a surprised woman. I must admit to being as surprised as Jaya that we have reached this far. I have not been very active in commenting because I don't want to keep ragging Jaya to act as my amanuensis when she has many other hats to wear. I hope you don't hold that against me. And we hope that our blog is not content-free. (Mark Twain was of the opinion that only presidents, editors and people with tapeworms have the right to use the editorial "we". I don't belong to any of these categories but I am sure that you understand my use of the royal pronoun.)
