Woo-hoo..!!! Celebration Post..!!! :) :)


Actually, I got to 100 followers today all excited {triple digits for this lil ol' thing?? really ??}

I feel like taking a moment to celebrate the readers of this blog. You guys! I don't much acknowledge that more and more people are finding Madhulika Speaks a cozy space to drop in on, and that makes me happy! Some of you know me personally, and a lot of you just via the blogosphere. I love sharing little pieces of my life, my family, and my endless projects with you, and am glad you enjoy it.

Truth is, I'd blog even if just for myself because I get to babble everything here :)
But it's fun to have a growing readership, and really fun to occasionally run into someone who tells me, "I read your blog!" :D :D :D

I really Love all of you and I want to tell you people that its because of you that this blog has become so dear to me :)
Seriously, it is.

So I was thinking what I could do to celebrate 100 followers...

I could always give $100 to one of my subscribers?

Nah. That's stupid. I barely have money as it is, why the crap would I do that?

I could always give my 100th subscriber a steak dinner?

That's even dumber, why would I treat my subscribers to a steak dinner? I rarely have a steak dinner. ;)

So after careful thinking, I have decided to give a proper Indian lunch to ANY ONE of my followers whom I get to meet personally (I know its crazy, but its fun).

And apart from the lunch I am also looking forward for at-least two guest posts from my followers or any (random) reader of my blog..!!!

So, if anyone is interested in writing a post for my blog then please come forward and become a part of my celebration.. I would really LOVE it...!!!

Please contact me to show your interest by dropping a mail at

Hoping to hear from you soon :) :) :)


P.S. -   I'll post the guest posts by 8th of October :)
P.P.S.- Because of your overwhelming response to the guest post, I have increased the guest posts from Two to Five..!!!! Love you all loads..!!!

Congratulations! That's a second - we hit 100 the same weeK!
Time to celebrate with a good meal and Champagne!! Would have said yes for guest blogging but I am away this week, so I don't think I will have time to write something but will look forward reading what others have to say.


Mrsupole said...

Congrats on the 100th and I hope you get to meet any bloggers who live close to you.

I will make you an offer, if you ever make it over here to So.California, I will take you to lunch at In-N-Out Burgers, and if you do not eat beef, they have grilled cheese sandwiches for vegetarians. They opened an In-N-Out Restaurant in Texas, and on opening day the line was over 5 miles long. Or if you want to go somewhere else that is fine too. And then we can make a cake for dessert. After that, you will never have fear about making another cake. Just kidding, we'll get one from Costco, yummy.

Congrats again.

God bless.

Madhulika said...

@MarieHarmony : Congrats to you too :) :)
I would have loved a guest post from you.. but I understand that you are busy...
so, may be some other time :)
Thanks a lot anyways :) :)

@Mrsupole : awwwww.. Thats really very sweet of you :) :) I'll definitely come down to California some day... cant let such a great offer go in vain..
So, you better be prepared becuase I am drop in any time ;)

Bikramjit said...

ok on my way.. will hold you to that ..


Madhulika said...

@Bikramjit : waiting ;)

kaykuala said...

Congratulations, Madhu! You came by only recently but you've always been there since. Thanks for the company!

Since the lunch is a standing invitation you'll be overwhelmed (reading from the response in the comments)

Care to tell us later who's the guy to savour the tandoori, masala and resam with you!

When I was in Safdarjang Enclave, Delhi, years ago, we used to go for grilled fish at one of the many al-Frescos in the evenings. We would ask for'Charr coke' (there were 4 of us)and 'charr thanda pani' or was it 'grum pani' (I meant warm water but I got my hot and cold mixed up now)

Thanks for the memories!

BlackLOG said...

Madhulika said...

@kaykuala : Thanks a lot :) :)
I am glad you enjoyed your time in India. And yeah.. "thanda" means cold while "garam" means hot ;).
I hope this will help you not messing your hindi words ;)

@jayendrasharan : Thanks a lot.. and the lunch offer is for any one of the follower whom i get to meet personally.. so it can be anyone :)

@The Updater : Thanks a lot for passing by... Hope to see you around :)

@albusclosethedoor : well.. You follow my blog, it doesn't really matter how.. so you are still in for the lunch... :)

As far as the stalker is concerned... why to feel so negative?? may the person I give a lunch party turns out to be a great human being and may be I would get a great friend :) Be positive dude.. Life isn't that unfair... :)

@BlackLOG : awwww.. that was bad :(
But don't worry... I would love to complete your 100 for you :)

Anonymous said...

Lol right now Pakistan is not a tourist attraction, more of a journalist attraction -.- But yes the world is a small place after all :P

The Dreamer said...

CONGRATS :D I'd only wish I had as many followers as you <3

Stranger !!! said...

Haha.. People ! They suck. They are not happy with anything you do. They give you advises that even they don't follow. Take those worthless brats out of your life. As simple as that :) Nice read, BTW.
Simple yet pretty expressive writing, I must say !

R. Ramesh said...
