Your First Post Challenge

Abyssbrain of mathemagicalsite nominated me for “Your First Post Challenge”. Here are the rules of the challenge.My post isn’t anyway close to as weirdly accurate as Abyss’ has been, but it was my first. In all honesty though, my first posts were posted on blogspot.com and ported here when I moved to wordpress. I don’t know when exactly I did that though, and technically this is my first blog post, so it works for me!

  • Copy-paste, link, pingback or whatever way you want to, your first post.
  • State what type of post that was. E.G. Introduction, Story, Poem
  • Explain why that was your first post.
  • Nominate 5 other bloggers. Five because I know the pain of opening a lot of tabs at once.


This was my first, March ’09. I can see now I was cursing all and sundry way back then as well! Some things never change…. 😀

Nominees…… (oi vey! Which is strikingly similar to hai ve! that someone from Punjab might say if they didn’t want to use a customary cuss word!)

1 Eric Wong

2 Heavy Cloud

3 Akiraa

4 Cloud Urchin

5 Nidhi


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  2. The link is broken I think. Maybe you haven’t pasted it correctly. It happens sometimes.
