I think on this very date almost everybody in the cyber universe who resides in this country would update their status in Facebook, would tweet, would write a blogpost and would do whatever they can to commemorate on the importance today. It's Independence Day. 55th Independence Day, to be precise. If you understand what it means, independence equals liberation. Independence is freedom. Independence relates to self-government, self-reliance, self-sufficiency, self-determination... and release your entity from the control of others. Independence is all about being competent with your own capability, your own capacity, your own aptitude and competency; and above all - believe in yourself. It's the self-believe what make independence truly mean what it means.
On this very day itself, it also marked the birth of this blog. It was quite ironic, considering that it's also the day of the death of the people's Princess - Lady Diana. I remember it was at the bunker of my lab at UCL - after returning from Kensington Palace, visiting Diana's remembrance with other people who brought flowers to the palace's gate - I braved myself to enter into the weblogging world by signing up to Blogger platform. I don't know what am I jumping into, what to expect, where to begin with, what to write, and above all I haven't got a clue what would I share in here. All I knew back in 31 August 2008 - I wanna have my own blog after being inspired by Kirk Douglas whom the Londonpaper said also wrote one blogpost every month himself. One blogpost per month? I can do that! That's exactly what's going on in my mind then.
So, on this 31 August I wanna shout out I x MY. I x MY country. I x MY Big.Fat.Blog.
Happy 55th Independence Day. Happy 4th Anniversary....
