Diwali 2011 - Should I write a book!

Every year during Diwali I remember the things I did in past years. I guess it is not good to remember old days or should we only think about future? I dont know but it feels really nice when I think about past years. I know I shouldn't do it but I can't control the thoughts coming in my mind.

Last Diwali was my first Diwali after my marriage and we decorated the whole house and I made rangoli! yeah. Before marriage I always used to do some stuff every diwali, like go for a long walk, or sit in park for couple of hours, I miss that now. Life is really busy with lot of thing and I know it is not worth it. I am giving up lot of things now and planning to lead a simple but happy life. It is not that I am not happy, I am happy but I have made my life very occupied that sometimes I realize that I am not really enjoying the life the way I should. No matter how much money I earn or how many materialistic things I buy it can't replace the joy of simple things in life. Now when I look at my daily schedule I am always running and doing one task after another, it is like a robot or a machine doing mechanical work. I have deceided that I will not let things go like this.

As I have been saying repeatedly for so many days now that I will not be taking any more projects now, I mean client work. All I will do now is I will work on my own portals. So Sparxsys will not be taking further projects. I prefer working for myself only.

Coming back to Diwali, I like this festival like most Indias but I feel that things are not like it used to be in the past. Anyways lets talk about positive things.

On the other side, Vinod and I have been discussing about an idea these days that we were thinking for the past one year. That idea has something to do with our real passion. We have not yet formalized on that yet but pretty soon we will decide about it and hopefully in couple of months we will announce it :) I am also now thinking seriously of writing a book. I always wanted to document my life, experience in some form. This blog is certainly a place where I write about my day to day life but I also want to write some book, I have not decided whether it will be fiction or autobiography but it will be influenced by my life. I am not really a writer but Vinod asked me to write a book. I do write a lot, mostly on this blog and other places. I am a bad writer for sure but that doesnt matter as long as your readers get the message! Or may be if not a book I will write collection of short stories, may be that will be easy. My problem with writing is that, i hardly read back or revise whatever I write. I find it too boring to read your blogs again :) so if I write short stories I will have to spend less time revising it :p lazy me. I have not decided on that yet and I have not decided whether I will write a book or not but I am giving it a thought! I know there are many people who will laugh when they hear that I am writing a book :) so am I!

Happy Diwali guys! and thanks for reading my blog.
