Reflection on Attaining 5K Mark & the LIKES Let me wish along with all my brothers in IL on the occasion of INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’s day - all my senior and junior sisters in IL a more happy more prosperous more lucrative and or more remunerative quality family academic life . Ok ladies and few gentlemen - you must be longing rather wondering whom to congratulate and why & when. Yes it is special day for women of the worlds & the ladies of INDUS. Today is not the beginning of the first day of new month when our chairman emiritus @Cheeniya announce awards for the outgoing month for the best narration recognising the fellow IL’ite contribution(s). But then there is opportunity for you all to wish..... You might have had achieved milestones and others were proud of your achievement. You might have got titles, red ribbons and thrills and what not: in that process you have been in the past might have greeted by many here. Like every fellow IL’ite I too have experienced across threads - varieties of emotions, made personal friends, exchanged specific ideas, shared about many recipes & story of “ills” , sought remedies for maladies & suggestions and solutions and read others’ take, concerned for woes of others, empathised with posters in various fora including emotions in their trimesters, enjoyed reading and contributing for threads in original fiction and non fiction stories and anthologies in English & in mother tongue. (Some tongue-in-cheek FBs included) I Even experienced thrill in responding/reacting to posters with rebuffs/rebukes evidencing their strong association and or aversion. Some contributors exchange intellectual gymnastics, demonstrate shadow boxing, even verbal pyrotechnics threatening to quit accusing some bias and prejudice et al. Some provide good humour..some disappear and appear as new avatars. After all this, today I am mighty pleased & thrilled, as I had breasted the 5k mark sprinting all through. And feel in the heart of heart, greatly indebted to all my followers & @IL_Admin who encouraged, recognised my blogs and contributions in various fora including media. Thanks for boosting my overall score of “trophies “ to past CD ( in Roman numerals). For 5000 in Roman you know what you write - yes you guessed it -“ (V) “ Thanks to all my followers who facilitated me in achieving this funtastic FEAT OF 5000 LIKES*. MY special thanks to @Itsmylife143 Who had given me the click of 5000th “like” on this International Women’s Day. *Thyagarajan Messages: 4,553 Likes: 5,000 Points: 415 GOD - You cause all love your trophies.
