No one says…

You know, Someone’s grandmother always told Someone never to waste time in life explaining. Someone is bound to understand sometimes but Someone cannot understand Everyone all the time. Therefore Someone did not understand the grandmother and went on explaining for Everyone. Naturally, Everyone does not understand Someone and explanations remained pointless….

Yeah yeah, it was a meek attempt to play upon the Somebody, Everybody, Nobody game that most of us would have played in childhood. Anyway, the idea behind it (don’t explain! don’t!) is to tell you that the Metblog is a fun place where posts are written by people for the sheer fun of capturing their little moments in the city on a regular basis. We are not a newspaper, we are not an official city guide, we are not reporters on duty who can afford to cover every little happening in the city at the cost of our day job (as CC might put it, heck, we are not even paid). Yet, sometimes, we are a little of all of that. Sometimes, more. One might say we are an ongoing conversation about Chennai. Sometimes meaty, sometimes lean. Sometimes nourishing, sometimes a pain. Yet, pretty regular wouldn’t you say?

So, sorry to dampen that wild surmise dear reader hh, but cliched as it sounds, we write for love!

    Looks like Somebody’s grandmother was right, what was that all about? :-)

    Very nicely put. After reading thru some of the comments (on other topics), I feel Metroblogging Chennai should put this as a disclaimer :)

    Lavanya,
    Like I said in the comment section of another post here.. I love reading the Chennai Metblogs for what you all present. I get to know about my Chennai in two ways – whats happening these days when I live far far away and sometimes its history. Some of the posts also make me nostalgic and force me to comment :)
    All in all, I applaud everyone of you for making it very interesting.
    I also (try to) read Boston metblogs (I lived there for sometime) and Denver metblogs (I live there now) but to be very honest, they are not even one-tenth as interesting as Chennai Metblogs!
    ps: It is pretty obvious you all write for fun..look at the number of posts!! :D Keep it up!
