The blog turns 5, and I have only you to thank for it!
Note – Read till the end, because that’s where the asli masala is!
What started in October 2013 as a way to get out of boredom (read unemployment) has quickly turned into one of my prized possessions.
It took me a week to come up with the name ‘A Curious Army Wife’, after husband, aka Major Sa’ab vetoed ‘An Angry Army Wife’.
Every blogpost thereafter has been an attempt to chronicle our unique life. Yes, it’s tough, it’s exciting, it’s tense, and it’s nomadic…. which is why I have lots of stories to tell the world.
This blog brought me in touch with some amazing like-minded people, bloggers, authors and publications, who gave me the confidence to keep going.
My parents and in-laws gave me so much gyaan whenever there would be a couple of weeks’ gap between two posts, it felt like they were getting paid to pester me into writing more.
Officers and their wives (and girlfriends in some cases) showered me with “Ma’am amazing blog” dialogue which made me feel like a miniscule celebrity in my head. Unn sabko dher sara Ashirwaad.
And finally, my Major Sa’ab urf the person who checked, double checked and then checked once more each and every blogpost to make sure I don’t write anything to get him into trouble — he needs to be given due credit. Yeah, he would point out mistakes sometimes, but then no husband is perfect na.
He has also been my chalta firta fauji Google. So congratulations to you too Major Sa’ab, this blog is your baby too! You would want to give me a gift for this 5-year milestone na? Don’t worry, your debit card is with me, I’ll save you the trouble.
And now the asli masala part. Hee haw haww.
