I was standing in an elevated place some where in Mount Kosciuszko National Park Blue Lake Walk.

Adventurous things come to mind in elevated places . This time it was during a hiking trip with family and friends. What a memorable experience and what a good new year’s resolution I could come to afterwards.. ” Winyu ” ( meaning Sun in the Aboriginal language of Ngunnawal people) is my newly re-launched blog and web media site.

Strangely the mountains prompt this bold, adventurous feelings, Re- launching of my blog came to me during the Blue Lake Hike. I was thinking about it for sometime, after abandoning my blog some time back. Strange this came as a new year resolution to my mind. Good times, natural environments and strange talks… That is what makes life’s new adventurers.

When my friend Prakash-A deep rooted mountain man, lover of visual cultures and places, an off beat anthropology and film maniac(sorry buddy!), and guess what a Nepalese oozing out mountain breath, talked me over to make this family get together and hiking trip to mountains, I did not think twice.

It was a well-deserved trip for two families -My family and his-whom shared a lot of things together over the years while settling down in this beautiful country Australia, where we live in the bush capitol called Canberra- originally in the home of Ngunnawal people.

The hiking trip was partly planned to celebrate my success finally in to the writer’s circle in Australia as an Emerging Writer- as my short story- ” Rosy Dreams and Rubbish Bins” was selected for publishing after getting through the SBS emerging writers competition in 2021 as one of the 30 selected entries to be published in an Anthology ! It was a surprise and a joyful thing after a long but on-and-off writing journey,

My writing drive has always amazed me as it comes back to me again and again. I have journeyed through print and web media especially writing on environment and science topics in my early years. I have experienced a life of a journalist and a writer as a freelancer. lt was truly rewarding as I always did it partly as a hobby and partly as a side profession whenever time let me in. My effort in this web media is to share my ” fun” and ” good time” in writing and journalism for a wider public and like minded people.

So Welcome to Winyu blog.. In which I hope to share stories about .. say life experiences and perceptions specially about books, writing, people, places ..and…what not. Also , it will be an initiation of a media web, in which I would like to invite my fellow writing enthusiasts and journalists to be guest writers as well.. big dreams in a mountain top.

Here comes 2022!… New name in air Winyu Blog
