Before, I used to look for the smallest of the excuses to celebrate.
Now, God is giving me ample reasons to celebrate.
Thank you God. :-)

My article has been published by "The Hindu" in the Open Page,dated 18th September 2011.
I had written it in my Blog earlier, The Sad State Of The English Language.

  19. Firstly, congratulations Ashwini :)
    Next, its a nice read. I thought on a similar platform when our teacher chided someone in the class for answering in short-hand during exam papers! Thanks for sharing the idea and its a great way of encouraging people to write/speak properly.

    Keep posting more...

    Love,

  24. Hey first of all congratulations...:) I never use short forms, because I believe and has been proved that sms language affects your normal writing habbit.
    I received an sms from a friend yesterday....in that I noticed one word which was, 'Lemme'...it means 'Let me'. Both the words have same number of letters, then why not type it correctly, I wondered....Good Blog.

  43. Congratulations, Ashwini. Good one. Even I get irritated with this style of writing though I try my best not to. I am trying very hard to get used to it fearing that I may be called names if I don't. :)

  45. Hi
    If you are good enough to be published in 'The Hindu' you should be writing online ... for money. Do you think you are a freelance writer within, waiting to express your self to a global audience.

    Take it up as a hobby and get paid even as you refine your hobby to become a writer.

  46. Hi

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  47. to which email id we should send the article

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm thinking about sending an article to the open page too. I was wondering if it would be possible to send an article I'd already published in my blog. Now I know. Congratulations, BTW. Sorry, by the way. RIP English.
