It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way. .

– Excerpt from  ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens.


The Blog Tour :

Well, this blog is all about my love for the language. You can find a bunch of English tutorials in the ‘Tutorials’ category specially drafted to enhance English writing and communication skills. But the blog does not only deal  with the technicalities of the language.

Over a period of writing tutorials, I have also explored my emotions through the language that appears as creative pieces in the ‘From my Heart’ category and ‘Melody’ – the music of Life .Well, the emotions and opinion expressed in the posts and poems are true reflections of my heart.I also utilize this platform to connect to fellow bloggers belonging to diverse cultures to learn about different mindset and thoughts and gain a different perspective to life altogether.Blogging has made me more of a contemplative person. It inspires me.

In a nutshell, it is A Date With Life.

Story behind the origin of the blog : It was more of an impulsive decision than a well planned effort. I simply started it. No planning,No thought-process went behind the structure of the blog. It was simply – ‘Lets start a blog’. Though I was planning to start , but it was more of a 10-years-down-the-lane dream. And today I am glad I acted impulsively !

Future Prospects : I am a technical person by profession, so I am planning to include technical tutorials as part of this venture so that my learning can also benefit others. Sharing is caring !
