And the Blog-a-Ton 25, Silver Edition topic is:

Date for Blog-a-Ton 25 : MARCH 04, 2012 

On the basis of the voting over last week, we have narrowed down the topic for BAT 24.

 Topic for Blog-a-Ton 25 :

Thanks a lot to Animesh Ganguly of penning down the mind for the inspiring suggestion.

  1. You can submit ONLY ONE POST for this event irrespective of the number of blogs you maintain.
  2. You can title the post as you wish. No restrictions there.
  3. You must justify this theme with a complementary post. To make things easier, you have the freedom to treat it the way you want. Its upto you; which genre of writing you choose, i.e. simple essay-type, article, dialogue, short story (even 55 Fiction for that matter), poem or whatever you feel like.
  4. Moreover, its up to you; which mood or tone you choose to set it in, i.e. serious, witty, humor, optimistic or whatever that comes to you naturally.
  5. If you are having a cartoon blog, photo blog, painting blog etc, even you can participate with your piece of art complementing this theme.
  6. You have the freedom to choose the language of communication. However, we'll suggest you to write in English to put across your views to the maximum members which will also help you when its the time to vote for the BATOM.
  7. Other rules regarding the posting will be conveyed to you later. So kindly wait for that notification on this Friday (MARCH 2nd) rather than putting up queries right now. If the queries are regarding general pattern of the event, please go through the posts about previous events.
So, you all have ample time to write it, but you'll have to wait till MARCH 4th to post it finally on your blog along with everyone else.

Please write your posts on time ( MARCH 4th ~ 00:00:00 – 23:59:59 IST ) as early or late entries will not be allowed to participate in the voting round (though the links will be added to the participants list).

Encourage your fellow bloggers to participate in this edition. You can share this post on various social networking profiles through the ShareThis widget present at the bottom of this post.

Have fun,
Blog-a-Ton Co-Marshal - Vinay Leo Ravindranath

There are more prizes than just the BATOM to be won this time.
Do stay tuned for more details.


  1. I hope atleast more number of bloggers participate in this episode than last episode

  2. Best of luck to all. I think I will give this time a skip. I usually like to think the entire week and write a story for Blog-a-ton. I still have not thought anything and I may be out of town this Saturday. Not too keen on writing a 55 er just for the sake of participation. See you all next Blog-a-ton.

  3. Looking at the topic at the moment I don't feel that I will be able to write :-) However, I will certainly try my best to participate.

  4. Hey, I just noticed a discrepancy and I think it needs to be corrected at the earliest.
    While this post says we can title it as we like, the newest post says we have to stick to "When journey means more than the destination".

    On following the rules of this post, I have titled my entry as something else. Is that a problem? What should be done about it?

    And honestly speaking, "When journey means more than the destination" is too large a title and is ruining the essence of many entries.



Seeking Redemption By Madhu Vajpayee

Presenting Seeking Redemption by Madhu Vajpayee.

The Blurb:

Story of a girl Meera, who is unwittingly drawn into a conflict from where she finds it difficult to emerge unscathed. It’s her journey from being a simple, medical graduate belonging to a middle class family to the uncharted territories of corruption and caste-based politics. Her path is crossed by two men, both compelling yet completely contrasting characters, who are going to change her life forever. If it is Aman Sharma who can challenge her ideals, defy her resolves and make her the person she finally becomes, it is Abhay Bharti’s sublime love which enables her to go through the vicissitudes of life. It’s also the story of her loss as well as triumph against her own demons to find her true self.

Book Review: Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time Edited By Saravana Kumar Murugan

Presenting Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time Edited by Sarav.

The Blurb:

True friendship is defined as a natural and spontaneous reaction towards a person with unconditional love and ultimate support to a person in all areas of life. A true friend is the one who is always with you when the entire world rejects you. A true friend is like a mirror who reflects the real you to you. In this unpredictable world of twists and rough roads, a true friend is a blessing, a rejuvenating factor, and is always fresh. Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time by Shades Publications, cherishes such true friendship, and this collection of 25 short stories on Friendship is a dedication the all true friends in this world.
