Anil Kurup's blog stands out from the crowd - not only in content but in the looks itself. When you visit Musings - Anil's web home - the first thing that welcomes you is this looming ice mountain and a little climber at the foothills only as a shadow.

Is it symbolic of something? Well, that is one question I have always had but never had the courage to ask. His blogger 'about me' says nothing much; if you won't take my word for it, check it out yourself.

As you scroll down the mountain, you would wonder what is there in store for you that day. Some of his posts are way serious for my simple mind, however, the posts where he opens up himself about his dreams or pasts or happenings, it is such a treasure to read. These are my favorites. I guess it is because real life amuses me more than discussing politics or serious affair. Anil has started to open up more these days as we can see from some of his recent posts...

I normally read these posts very slowly - word by word, forming the sentences and musing over them and going back to read the last two sentences together and then move a little forward only to come back to the beginning of the post to repeat all the same... I cherish these posts and enjoy his language. Oh! not to forget, I'll always keep a web dictionary open on the other tab for looking up some of his words; the fun he has with words is amazing.

If you are a serious reader who loves politics and the like, you would be in love with most of his posts where Anil welcomes your comments for and against his views thus enjoying a hearty discussion. On the other hand if you are a light reader like me who likes real life stories, following are my suggestions for a must read at Musings!

* August 23,1988
* The odd couple
* A journey into fantasy
* Little romance
* Sweet Caroline

Oh dear this was compliment at its devastating best !
Are you serious?

Thank you for the appreciation.I hold it forth as the mountain in my post and me the tiny speck of stardust, the man at its foot hills.
Have I begun opening up? Was I cloistered in a cocoon?I guess cocoons are translucent!

Thank you much for the words you have for the Blog.

May be you may force yourself to read my first post,"Why I'm not a Christian" and express your comments. And the post that is close to my heart, "The Dream".

Thanks again

:) Loved this post. Exactly what I feel about Anil's posts. Some of them I am not sure how to comment on. They go way above my realm of understanding. :)

Hmm, a frequent visitor to Anil's website I must confess I have never really considered that mountain peak before but now you mention it you have me wondering.

Visited his blog from this post. I can safely say he shines like the snow shines on a mountain on a sunny day :)))

Wow...that was a well deserved compliment.This is far better than many of those awards I see being distributed around.
Anil is a man of exceptional qualities.His language skill is exemplary.To be honest,I often refer to some dictionaries to get to the meaning of words.And he uses them with such eloquence and ease.
It takes time for any person to openly communicate.And only after you know to whom you are talking to.

reading this post, what came to my mind is
"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;
Not to the sensual ear, but, more endeared,
Pipe to the spirit dities of no tone." By John Keats

Having been one of Anil's close friends for nearly 27 years, I am happy to note that his language skill is finally recognized, though friends know the depth and breadth of his vocabulary well enough! ;-)

Blogs have a way of bringing the real person from behind, however one may try to hide.
