One step at a time...
This blog has been a witness to my journey as a reader, writer and most importantly, as a book lover. I have shared my editing woes, of clients leaving me in despair, of books I have loved and lived and of course all the milestones that have adorned my nine year journey till here. Yes, this is the 9th year of the blog and I don't know how it all happened.
I just know - I want this blog to be the epigraph for the book of my life. This is what life meant to me and this is what I created.
All I know is this blog was the beginning of a dream in 2011 and I don't know what the end destination is going to be like. As the image above says, I started with absolutely no vision. I started this blog purely out of love for books and the written word. I loved listening to authors and their journeys. It felt magical to hold a book in my hand every single time and it still does. Given that I read my first book when I was 4, it has been a long way!
The goal might not be clear but milestones matter a lot for they remind me, why I embarked on this journey in the first place. Sharing yet another milestone of my life, to add to the virtual memory bank of my journey. I hope I keep adding to this memory bank with more beautiful and cherished memories.
And also, if you are a storyteller, a poet, a published author or a book reviewer and would like to submit your work to Kitaab, please do send it across. The submission guidelines have clearly mentioned what can be sent and how.
Thank you so much for being a part of my journey till now! Here's to many more of such milestones.
