Photobucket had recently made a very dick move by disabling all third-party embedded pics unless I pay $399. I've been blogging for 13 years and have 2000+ embedded pics across 650+ blog posts, which are now all unviewable. I'm working on moving my images to a new host, so until then, please do bear with me if you cannot view any images on my older blog posts.

Chp 34. Izawl.com

The time to bid adieu to my seniors is nigh. Will post a special message specially dedicated to them shortly.

5 more days to go and one year is over for us too. Recently what have I been up to?

I came across this amazing mizo interactive website.
Izawl.com. It has been active for many years now, but I never knew about it At first I was a bit hesitant on posting any messages there. But slowly I gathered enough courage. The thing is, my mizo sucks big time. Ofcourse I can read and write mizo perfectly, but since I haven’t spoken in mizo in such a long time, well there’s a slight problem when I try to read a mizo sentence that has typos! I mean, when someone makes a spelling mistake while typing in English, you can easily make out what the person actually meant to type. But in mizo, gawd, I’m completely lost if I come across a typo! Coz one word has like zillions of meanings, it all depends on the pitch n pronunciation.

Anyway, I didn’t give my actual details there. I used the nick name “Sandman”. That way, if I make any grammatical errors while typing in mizo, nobody will know who I really am I told only two people, “Jupiter” and “Gisele”, that I’m from IIMB. Those two have become my regular chatting buddies at that website.

I have the advantage of being online the whole day (and usually whole nite too) at that website, as most people come online from a Cyber Café or from their work-place. Me, I have the luxury of browsing right from my bed anytime of the day

I have decided to go to Church today. Easter Sunday. The only time I ever went to a mizo function here in Bangalore was on X’mas, and that too bcoz Hminga was here. After he left, I became an even more deserted island when it comes to a mizo thingie. Not that it bothered me much, as all my life I’ve always hanged out with a non-mizo crowd. But yeah, sometimes, now n then, I do feel a deep shallow emptiness inside of me, not having any mizo frens or not knowing much about my culture. That’s why I have decided to go to Church today. I will meet many of the izawl.com regulars there: jupiter, mos_def, sick sad world, Gisele, ne0n, XXX, ammi, nunoi etc etc. They couldn’t believe it when I told them I’ve been in Bangalore for almost a year now, and none of them has heard about me (It’s a community thing. Everyone knows everyone types.)

Anyway, lets see how things work out
