Numbers are one of the greatest puzzles to human mind. They can cause excitement, anxiety and fulfillment. There is something complete about whole numbers. You feel little satisfied and at peace on achieving something, however small it is. That's why I always used to get an itch when Bata used to price most of its shoes at Rs 99.99.
Anyone striving for perfection knows that the journey from 99 to 100 is more difficult than 0 to 99. You can feel the anxiety and excitement built when a cricketer gets closer to century than any other score. I remember when Nadia Comaneci attained a perfect 10. Though the digital displays were not ready to show the score to the world, her splendid display made it crystal clear. In many fields, it is a landmark. Once you have achieved it, no matter how long you go, you know you have earned a marble in the jar.
Once in my student life I had experienced the ecstasy of scoring a perfect figure and years later the disappointment of missing it by few points. Today, I became little dizzy when I realized this is my 100th post. It took me 15 months to write this, a little longer than I expected. But as it is said, joy is found not in destination, but in the journey. It has been a wonderful odyssey indeed and am honored to be bestowed with such good blog friends and the awards – one from Suma and other from Monika. Thank you and I herewith pass on the “Brillante Weblog” to (that is if I could find any who has not received it yet):
Archana – She has a knack of creating an interesting post from almost anything.
Archana – Her tidbits about life and the way she looks at it is very refreshing and encouraging.
Sumana – Her tiny and little not only brightens her life but our day too.
Ceedy – His short stories need to be compiled into a book. Very well thought over and beautifully written.
