Today marks the third year of my blog, An Abyss Of Imagination, Creativity Unleashed. Anniversary celebrations are always nostalgic whether it is a celebration of a romantic relationship, marriage or a blog. The attachment to something you love and are passionate about always surfaces with a surge of uncontrollable emotions.
The mind automatically transmigrates to that minute in time when blogging was a trend which everyone had to try it out once to experience it. The hesitation of -”Should I do it? What would I call it? I don’t want to sound too cheesy. Will anyone come to read my blog? “
These questions flooded my mind always. But the bold step was taken and the name was coined in.
An Abyss Of Imagination is a bottomless pit of knowledge where every kind of information is welcome. It is written with the understanding of spreading knowledge, creating awareness and entertaining. It is not all vanity but aimed at creating a lasting impression. Quenching the thirst for knowledge which no one will answer has always been the goal of this blog. The bold, direct approach in my writing style is to enhance the thought process of every reader.
Of course, I get bombarded with negative comments but I take it in my stride and forgive them because of their ignorance. Not everyone can take in the truth and not everyone is willing to change for good. But my aim is to expand the knowledge and guide those who think about “progress” whether it is related to health, fitness or spiritualism. Some readers have been very kind and written notes of encouragement. Many have valued my opinions and imbibed my responses in their daily living.
I expect anniversary presents from the readers in form of on-going readership, helpful pointers and encouraging comments. This will fuel my passion further and I intend to continue this quest of writing for this Abyss Of Imagination, Creativity Unleashed until my last breathe.
Thank you for your best wishes and support.

Akshaya Tritiya is one of the most significant day in the year. In 2010, this day falls on 16th May. There are numerous instances in our Hindu texts that mark this day as auspicious.
It is said that every minute of this day is positive and provides blessings and abundance. Hence this day is the best day to get married.
Marrying on Akshaya Tritiya brings good fortune, prosperity and longevity to the couple. Most Indian Hindu customs requires the right muhurat or a significantly positive time of the day.
This is based on the constellations and the planetary positioning of the bride and groom’s birth chart. It is deducted on the science of astrology. But Akshaya Tritiya nullifies all the negativity, Graha dosh or ill effects of the planets.
It is also the best day to buy gold, silver and platinum. The reason for this is explained in the Mahabharata. Our previous post “Buying Gold?” will give you a detailed understanding behind this reason.
