The times they are a-changin'

Today is the dawn of a new era here on my blog. Out with the old and in with the new, because the times they are a-changin'. Bibliophilia was a blog dedicated strictly to books and bookish things, but as my interests have changed I was starting to feel a bit stifled and did less and less writing for the blog. I didn't want to give up blogging as I enjoy writing and having an expressive platform so I decided to take a page from Madonna's book and embraced a sort of reinvention. Thus Kahaani was born!

In the spirit of Kahaani, I shall give the story explaining the choice of the name Kahaani as direction and replacement for Bibliophilia. I received a copy of the Indian movie Kahaani from a former business associate and friend in 2013. It is a riveting mystery thriller which I highly recommend. I enjoyed the movie so much, because the meaning of Kahaani - which is story is central to the movie. I also loved the word Kahaani that I decided that if I got another cat, I would name him or her 'Kahaani'.

Having said that, Kahaani is also the name of one of my cats. The most peculiar one of my cats, I think. I
found her on a Sunday in May 2014 in a rosebush in my garden. I responded to mewing that I thought was coming from my other cat, Sirius, but turned out instead to be this adorable Calico cat that just peered into my soul and stayed in my heart. She was tame, not yet feral but far away from home, quite hungry and had so many ticks on her. I fed her, removed the ticks, played with her and kept her close - waiting to see if she would stay. A week later she was still here so she went to the vet, got her shots, got spayed, dewormed and became a permanent fixture in our home. And that is her story. I shall elaborate on Kahaani's story as time goes by. I shall also write about Buster and Sirius who are also female companions.

However, I digress.

Kahaani will focus on stories, regardless of the medium - be they songs, movies, series, books, poems or pictures. Content will be more diverse - it may not always be about stories but it will be whatever is intriguing me at the moment.

I have already started with the cosmetic changes, adding all the links will take some time, so please bear with me. I welcome any ideas or suggestions or even questions.

 I hope that you will enjoy this new part of my blogging journey with me.
