How did you celebrate your blog’s fourth birthday? Asked my friend who had recently started a blog of her own called ‘game of lies.’
Well, it had been a very different kind of celebration, I said .
In what way? She asked full of curiosity.
No parties, no fan fare, infact it had been a very low key affair, I replied. Sadly, very few of the visitors to my blog remembered the date because of earth shaking events originating from our very home town, I lamented.
That’s the reason I started blogging and I could zero in on a name without any difficulty, said my friend.
I understand but I find nothing wrong with the game itself, only the people playing the sport have resorted to lies and more lies living in a fool’s paradise, I said.
Then shall I change the name of my blog? Asked my friend in all seriousness.
Yes, I think you should, I said.
Why don’t you suggest one? She implored.
‘Sport devoid of sportsmen’ I said after pondering over it for a while.
Ah, that’s more appropriate. I shall immediately replace it with the new one, she enthused.
But please remember to change it once again when things improve, I warned.
Certainly, but do you think they would?
A very remote chance, I said knowing fully well I was lying to myself !
