I am happy to announce that I have just completed posting my 500th article to my blog. After I posted my first article to this blog site on 20th April 2009, I sent an email to my family, friends and relatives as follows: “Hi! Everyone, I have just started blogging under the title: ‘Raghu’s column!’ I strongly wish and hope I would find time to contribute regularly to this column on wide ranging topics: My views, memoirs, parties, forthcoming events, local issues / news, family announcements and many more topics. Please visit http://srisrilara.blogspot.in/ from time to time, please read my articles and post your comments for me and others to benefit”.
At the time when I began blogging, I never thought I would reach a figure of over 500 blog posts. As events came up and ideas, thoughts and memories sprang up in my mind I kept writing as and when possible and in these three years, to be precise in 37 months, I have posted 500 articles with well over 3,500 photographs. My son, Srinath is abroad in UK, and my nephew Dr. Uday Bhaskar is in Saudi Arabia and similarly a number of my friends, relatives and ex-colleagues who are far away are very happy to read my posts on current events at Hyderabad and those concerning me. And the blog is serving as a ready reckoner for me, our family and friends over various subjects concerning us and I presume it is helping a large number of other visitors reaching my blog in search of information.
I wish to continue blogging as long as possible, as I am thoroughly enjoying this new found hobby.
