The Beginning…

December 7, 2008

The easiest thing to decide was that I wanted to have a blog of my own where I could be anyone I wanted to be, write what I wished to write & think whatever came to my mind and express it. To put it simply I wanted ‘a place of my own’.


Like every woman I always wanted a place of my own which I could take care of, decorate, live, love, learn & evolve in. Many a women find their ‘home’ as that place where they do all that. Being a bit different I decided to have a virtual one instead which is easier to maintain as no one has a say in how I should have it or no one to displace & misplace things I have lovingly placed. Basically total control…


A place where friends are always welcome to have a word or two…..


The easiest decision made was to have a blog. I read a few (really good ones), got inspired & decided to try my hands on this new venture. With this thought my long lost dream of writing came alive with a spark.


Easier said than done, putting together all my ideas into a perfect page was more difficult that it seemed at first. Being a perfectionist  I wanted it to express the real me, convey it in a good way, be inviting & interesting as well, and above all should have some goodness about it too. “For every soul that touches mine should leave with some good received”, even if that is just a moments of pleasure.


So… Having all that in mind, I began my quest for a perfect (you’ll find that word a lot many times) Header. Oorja.. A name I knew & liked. Had it for years (my screen-name), it has now become my separate identity. That was an easy and obvious choice. What about the side heading which gives the actual message about the blog, what should that be..?


While all this was going on I also found myself stuck with the ‘Writer’s Block’. Couldn’t think of any good topic to write about for about a week. I kept churning all the ideas I had about this blog in my head & suddenly one fine day there was a flow of ideas like never before. One after the other thoughts came pouring, connecting and forming a mental picture of how I should go about it.


I finally found what I was looking for & things started falling in place. So.. Here I am writing on my own blog the story of how it all started……..

    That was a great post to begin with. Btw, what does Oorja mean?

      i think u r the first one to read it actually..

      Oorja is Energy in hindi. also VBR pointed out (which i didn’t know) that oorja is a name for Saraswati devi too.

      I chose it some years ago for myself… i loved the meaning… also my real name in some way has some significance in choosing this…
