Hello everyone! Welcome!
I am a ‘veteran’of the AtoZ blogging challenge, if I may use that word, and have participated four times. 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 were amazing as I was able to focus and eventually get to theme based posts! This in turn led to me gaining immense knowledge of the Public Parks in Pune (theme for 2015) and Herbs (theme for 2016).
Hence having a theme for this year was almost a given. Let me tell you it has been a very difficult choice. After my experience with herbs in 2016, the plant kingdom was the the most obvious choice.
However I realised that I needed to get back my spark in writing creatively so with a heavy heart, plants were put on hold.
My search for a theme thus widened and almost literally, the sky was the limit. Then suddenly, I hit upon this idea of writing about a contemporary AtoZ , as seen from the eyes of half-a-century-old me!
Ok… give or take a couple of years…
The earliest memories of the alphabet are A is for Apple, B is for Bat. Does C still remind one of Cat? And what about D?
Do these time-tested alphabet-object co-relations still hold?
I hope to put together 26 posts of some anecdotes, some observations, some experiences, some suggestions …
So folks get set for a 21st century / middle-aged / Puneri look at what the alphabets mean to me now…
Fasten your seat belts, as this roller coaster takes off on the 1st April 2018 (and thereafter Sunday is a holiday on the April AtoZ blogging challenge).
Do stop by daily or as often as you can.
I look forward to your visits and comments.

I can still see the pictures that used to go with A is for Apple etc on the classroom wall 🙂 It's amazing what sticks – most of the time I can't remember what I ate for lunch – lol. Good luck with the AtoZ – sounds like a great theme.
