Welcome to Revering Thoughts!

It’s good to have you here. If you’re wondering what this ‘Revering Thoughts’ is about, I’m here to help you understand it.

What exactly is Revering Thoughts ?

Reverie means the state of being lost in one’s thought or simply put, a daydream. Revering Thoughts is an idea born out of one such random reverie.

In its present form, Revering Thoughts is a Blog. As you’re reading this, you can already see a list of categories displayed on top, namely: Travel & FoodPolitical & Social IssuesMovies & EntertainmentRandom Philosophy and Others (there’s a lot going on here).

You can click and read through the posts in each of the categories mentioned.

When was Revering Thoughts started?

The blog was first born (yes, born en all), back in the day in 2008, when the Internet was a (still) a luxury in India. In a pay-per-hour Internet Cafe in Jatani, the types which mushroomed at every other street corner, the idea of having a blog to have my own writing real-estate, was born. And created right then.

Although, it wasn’t until I moved to Bangalore in 2012, that the blog got a much-needed re-birth of sorts. A new set of readers and the drive to write/express was found in the process. From a boring Blogspot to a cool WordPress, the infant blog grew up. And is still growing. (Thank you!)

The idea of Revering Thoughts is to be a hub of interesting thoughts, random and specific, a place to crib and rant about the world, a place to share and discuss – opinions about everything- and to document life’s varied passions and interests, which have changed over time.

The blog comprises of a lot of inferences and posts which talk about my personal life, memories from childhood, lessons from it or simply memoirs that I like to share with the world.

Apart from this, a running social commentary on everyday happenings, few political tidbitstravelogues and picturesreviews of movies and TV shows I watch, Books that I read, and a ton of random philosophies that my reveries allow me to write on.

The biggest lesson learned from writing and airing my opinions over the years is that it’s completely okay to disagree with an opinion and even healthy to open up to debate even radical thought processes. A democracy is borne out of different sets of ideas and not adherence to just one.

Of course, no one is perfect. I’m far from it. There may be opinions that I might have held in the past which I don’t subscribe to now. But instead of removing those posts/rants, I’ve kept it as a token proof to breathe in the fact that opinions change. Even mine.

I do hope you would like reading my Revering Thoughts as much as I love writing them.
