I like the presentation.

I like the colour palette.

The contents are informative.

I get to learn new things.

And most important I get to see how other people view the world.

It introduces me to many blogs and websites I never knew about.

I get to visit other people’s home and see their home decor,how they celebrate festivals and it introduces me to their hobbies be it painting,gardening cooking etc.

I make new contacts through email with people whom I have never met and may never meet around the globe.I come to know of their interest and passions.

 Reading is my hobby and when I see photos of books displayed on bookshelf or coffee table I try to see what other people are reading or pretending to have read.

Whoever first started blogging thanks to him or her?

Reading blogs is informative,relaxing and fun.

A big thank you to you all bloggers who make it possible.

Now let me know why you follow blogs?

Like a butterfly that visits different flowers to collect nectar,similarly a blogger visit different blogs to collect the best information ,ideas and enrich their lives.

Yesterday I went to the printing press near my house to get an old book bound.

I am visiting this place since childhood and the proprietor knows me well enough that everytime I go he offers me tea and we chitchat about his business and changes taking place in the surrounding area and society in general.

While conversing with him yesterday I just mentioned to him how busy he must be as schools are going to start and children must be coming to him to get old notebooks unused pages bound in a book.
He laughed and said “Those days are gone, now days kids don’t do any such thing.”

I remember when we were kids as soon as our results were declared old text books were sold and blank pages of notebooks removed and kept together to bind it in a book which could be used for homework or as rough book.

I still have this habit of removing blank pages from old diaries and journals before disposing them and keeping them in my black folder so that I can use them when required.

From the numerous posts that I receive I collect the ones whose back side is blank and use this paper for sketching or scribbling notes.

I surely would like to know if anyone else does that.

There are not many buildings in mumbai who's architecture is that we can proudly show or would like to see other than the existing heritage buildings in south mumbai.These are buildings built during the british rule and even today stand tall  as jewels in architecture.Most of them adorned with details showing fine craftsmenship and aesthetic sense.
