Lumuhuku in exile??

with 2 comments

I was reading someone else’s “Back to blogging” post when I realized that I haven’t written on Lumuhuku for last 3 months!!! Even last two posts were more like loud thinking rants than real posts.

Frankly speaking, I am unable to come up with something to write on. My readers have run away. I have data (graph below) to prove it…


Though I think a lot, I don’t feel like writing about my thoughts anymore (atleast for time being). And a quote by Albert Camus sums it up quite nicely –

We all carry within us our places of exile, our crimes, and our ravages. But our task is not to unleash them on the world; it is to fight them in ourselves and in others.

By the way, I am active on a blog which might not be of much interest to everyone reading this post. It’s a blog on stock market investing in India – Stable Investor.

It would be nice to see a few of my old readers there.

As far as Lumuhuku is concerned, I don’t know when I will be able to write something substantial here. But just to put it on record, this blog is still alive, but (most probably) in exile.

A bit of a surprise

with 9 comments

Sometime back, I had the following as my status on Gmail [Google] –

I will quote the same here – “Dev is planning to sell Lumuhuku. Financially sound bids can turn this joke into a reality.”

I was administered with a lots of swearing & brickbats from my friends about how I could even think of parting with my blog. It was way too personal to do be sold. And I just told them that I was ready to part ways with my blog, if someone was ready to compensate me adequately.

The next day, I got a call from an old college friend. He had been a regular reader of my blog and a close friend. He enquired about my blog and my reasons for selling it. I told him the same and also told him that I have the domain Lumuhuku registered too. That meant that apart from owning,  I also owned .

And, then he told me that he was ready to buy it. I thought it to be a joke. And told him that it was fine with me if he was ready to pay me more than ***** bucks.

In the very same evening, I got a message on my cellphone that my account had been credited with an amount of Rs *****/-. I was shocked. I checked it online. And damn!! My friend had transferred the money into my account. The amount was much more than which I had jokingly told him. [My friend knew my Bank account no. since college days.]

So as it must be quite clear by now, you know what has happened. 🙂 I am a bit richer.

Details in the next post soon.
