Quiet.

I know. I have been quiet a long time. Part if the reason was that things were down and up and upside down for the last few months. I had quit Frontline, taken up another job and promptly ran from that place, biometrified and petrified through an endless series of rules that, well, didn't make for wonderful journalism. The break was put to good use. I attended the Kalaghoda Arts festival, chilled with family for a week and caught up with myself.

Lately, I started work for Tehelka and have been dividing time between the features' desk there - mostly editing and page-making rather than reporting - and my own desk (bed, table whatever) at home, trying to put together something longer, and hopefully, more insightful. Have felt the need to not blog for a bit, and have, therefore, not blogged.

In the meantime, readers of this blog are entreated humbly to have patience and keep coming back to read, in case I have something to say. In other words, don't go away!

Yikes good luck! I hear their features editor is a sandwich short of a picnic. Apparently everyone who's ever left Tehelka has left because of her!

Distancing so as to get closer. It usually works.

Hello Annie,

Sometimes it makes tremendous sense to keep quiet, take time for oneself and sort of go into silence. The readers of your blog would respect that and would leave you the time to be quiet for a while. That makes far more spiritual sense in a world that has the compulsive pattern of "running as fast as you can to stay where you are"... Take your own time !
