Boloji: Carrying a Family Together
Rajender Krishan Bookmark and Share

September 1, 1999, I started the website as a single page containing translation and explanation of the Hindu Aarti "Om Jai Jagdish Hare'.  The inspiration of initiating this actually resulted from an online chat on AOL that I had with Betty Sue.  Our chat from general talk lead to a discussion on Hinduism. 

After the first page, then came a few of my poems and I started writing on Kabir.  My wife, Meera, started writing articles on Family Matters.  Her articles have been an indirect dialogue with our children (who today are 33 and 32 and themselves parents) and also expressions of a mother based on her personal experience. 

Although in its infancy, Boloji to me personally became my third child.

Soon we started getting emails from a lot of people, commenting, encouraging and also showing interest to become a part of Boloji.  

It was in those very initial days when Boloji was still crawling, that people started joining hands with me to nurse the baby. Within the first two years, Boloji had published some excellent articles on the Indian Architecture, Vedic Astrology, Hinduism, Ayurveda, Family Matters and Individuality. Poetry section was another success.

My vocation or my qualifications have nothing to do with journalism, publishing or the complexities of web designing or web publishing. The only qualification I have for operating Boloji is my junoon of understanding the essense of Freedom of Expression.  An expression that helps us discover the grandeur of Liberty and the related rights and duties that come with it.

Also, I am not a writer, in true sense of the word.  I read more than what I write.  And I appreciate the writings of our contributing writers because they expand my limited knowledge and lead me to new horizons. 

The Hindi content of the site was gradually converted into Hindinest.Com and Ms Manisha Kulshreshtha became the independent incharge of the same. 

Gradually more and more categories were added on the site. 

In April 2005, Ms Aparna Chatterjee agreed to become our Poetry Editor and for the last seven plus years, she has helped in editing and presenting thousands of poems written by hundreds of amateur and professional poets.  My personal gratitude to her. 

In November 2006, Mr. Ramendra Kumar agreed to take responsibility of managing Bolokids.com focusing on writings by and for children and young adults.  He has done exceptionally good job. My sincere thanks to his wonderful efforts.

In 2010, we took another step of changing the interface of Boloji to a data-driven one and made it interactive.  This has helped in speedier publication of content.  While the site boasts of over 26,000 pages, over 9,000 pages were added during the last two years alone. 

Today, Boloji starts its 14th year.  

Boloji is now not just my child;  it is a large family of over 3000 contributing writers who have enriched Boloji by an excellent variety of content.  It is also interesting to note that the content that has been posted on our site is informative, educative and analytical. Our writers are professionals in their own fields of vocation and have enthusiastic willingness to share their expertise and experience.  I am indebted to all for their association with Boloji and having given me personally the experience of carrying a large family together.  

This blog should be considered as my personal note of gratitude to each and every individual Boloji writer. You all deserve more.

Comment Dear Rajenderji, I should have put this a long time back. Better late than never. I love to be part of Boloji where in so many qualified writers have been penning interesting and specialised articles for years before I became one of the family. It is a great forum for varied expressions of opinions, structured and researched. Thanks and best wishes to you.

Comment Hearty congratulations, Rajender ji. The voice of boloji is loud and clear, and has been thevoice of many writers. The readership is vast, and there lies the success of this site. For example, a eight-line poem of mine 'Small wish' shows more than 2000 hits during the past two years. Magical, is it not!  I find many accomplished poets, writers and authors in this site. I feel proud  to be part of this site. Thank you, Rajender ji, Aparna ji and the boloji team.

May it celebrate many many such happy returns under your leadership. Boloji has been a very good web magazine of standard content and it has lived upto its high standards it set for itself all these years. I have been a regular reader of your poetry section and I know how difficult a job it is yet, Aparna Chatterjee ably manages the editorial responsibility of that section. My personal congratulations to her as also to the Bolokids editor Mr. Ramendra Kumar. I also congratulate rest of your team members and contributors for making the Boloji what it is today... a respected and must to see magazine on the net. with very best wishes, NS Murty

Comment Dear Rajenderji,

I am two days late in congratulating you.You know why?I read almost everything that has been posted in the on-line journal.Amazing!! I had read somewhere that some critics have a doubt that William Shakespeare was not the name of a single man since it's impossible for one man to produce so much of work in his lifetime.They believe, perhaps, Shakespeare was the name of a company or a large group of people who had produced all that literary output together.

I am tempted to compare Mr.Rajender to Shakerpeare!!

Jokes apart, I congratulate and regard you from the core of my heart for your valuable service to the society.You have enriched the civilization by an inch in your own way.You have encouraged many writers and given them a platform to express themselves.

For me, boloji is family. One can see so many references and links to boloji in my blog. I am proud to be associated with you.My son also writes for bolokids.com
 Please keep up the good work.Congratulations to your wife and the the editorial team of boloji.

And for you to have lovingly nourished Boloji over this decade and a half is truly an achievement!  Congratulations to you and to Boloji and its remarkable band of committed contributors who have made Boloji grow into such a rich repository of creative writing.

Comment  It is amazing to know that Boloji.com has completed 14 years of its successful existence in the cyber world. A great achievement indeed!!!.  I remember seeing it sometime in its infancy, and as I'm looking at it now, I can say that it has grown like a gigantic banyan tree, spreading its many branches to accommodate various types of writers, to share their ideas and thoughts to the world.

It is this site which gave me the necessary confidence to go ahead with my idea of starting a platform for Indian writers, especially for women,  www.induswomanwriting.com about 3 years ago. I'm very proud to be associated with boloji.com.

As an Admin myself, I can understand how much efforts Mr.Rajendranji and team will be taking behind the scene, to work the site so beautifully, providing valuable information to enrich the knowledge of the readers across the globe.

Best wishes for the continued growth of boloji.com.

It has been a great pleasure being associated with BOLOJI. The name BOLOJI itself motivates us to speak our hearts out and you have done a wonderful job in providing this outlet for all of us. We felt encouraged to share our thoughts and ideas and I personally have been greatly benefited by your platform. The way you and your wife started this venture and expanded its horizon speaks greatly about your labour and perseverance and I I congratulate both of you for this noble effort. May BOLOJI live longer than all of us and be a window for new ideas for all posterity.

Thanks once again and hearty congratulations !

I'd like to thank you for the tips and for the patience shown.

Comment Dear Rajender, It was a pleasure and privilege to be a part of your third child's life and I wish it and all your children immortality. Reminiscent of this "Amarjyot" and a tribute to your Bhagirath effort in sustaining and nursing your last child from and through sickness and near death, I am pasting from Wikipedia a summary of O.Henry's great short story "The Last Leaf" as an effort to parallel yours but without the tragic end for the sacrificer. With fond regards, Gaurang Bhatt The Last Leaf is a short story by O. Henry. Set in Greenwich Village, it depicts characters and themes typical of O. Henry's works. Contents 1 Plot 2 Adaptations 3 References 4 External links Plot Johnsy has fallen ill and is dying of pneumonia. She watches the leaves fall from a vine outside the window of her room, and decides that when the last leaf drops, she too will die. While Sue tries to tell her to stop thinking like that, Johnsy is determined to die when the last leaf falls. An old, frustrated artist named Behrman lives below Johnsy and Sue. He has been claiming that he will paint a masterpiece, even though he has never even attempted to start. Sue goes to him, and tells him that her sister is dying of pneumonia, and that Johnsy claims that when the last leaf falls off of a vine outside her window, she will die. Behrman scoffs at this as foolishness, but—as he is protective of the two young artists—he decides to see Johnsy and the vine. In the night, a very bad storm comes and wind is howling and rain is splattering against the window. Sue closes the curtains and tells Johnsy to go to sleep, even though there were still four leaves left on the vine. Johnsy protests but Sue insists on doing so because doesn't want Johnsy to see the last leaf fall. In the morning, Johnsy wants to see the vine, to be sure that all the leaves are gone, but to their surprise, there is still one leaf left. While Johnsy is surprised that it is still there, she insists it will fall that day. But it doesn't, nor does it fall through the night nor the next day. Johnsy believes that the leaf stayed there to show how wicked she was, and that she sinned in wanting to die. She regains her will to live, and makes a full recovery throughout the day. In the afternoon, a doctor talks to Sue. The doctor says that Mr. Behrman has come down with pneumonia and, as there is nothing to be done for him, he is being taken to the hospital to be made comfortable in his final hours. A janitor had found him helpless with pain, and his shoes and clothing were wet and icy cold. The janitor couldn't figure out where he had been on that stormy night, though she had found a lantern that was still lit, a ladder that had been moved, some scattered brushes, and a palette with green and yellow colors mixed on it. "Look out the window, dear, at the last ivy leaf on the wall. Didn't you wonder why it never fluttered or moved when the wind blew? Ah, darling, it's Behrman's masterpiece - he painted it there the night that the last leaf fell."" Adaptations

Comment Heartiest congratulations to you (and me) on  Boloji completing 14 years. Your junoon has helped  hundreds of writers  find a excellent  forum for expressing their thoughts.  As far as Bolokids is concerned,    in many places I have become identified with the website. Kids sometimes call me the  ‘Bolokids’ uncle. The Government of Meghalaya is organising  a national level youth fest in which Chetan Bhagat, Suhel Seth  and many hotshot celebrities  are participating. I have  been asked to conduct  the 'Bolokids Workshop' which had received an ‘incredible’ response the last  time  I had conducted it in    Shillong, in May. It has been an enriching and fulfilling experience working with you and I am confident  Boloji  will grow from strength to strength. I have made many friends thanks to Bolokids and Boloji : Dr. Amitabh Mitra, Aparna Chatterjee, Ananya Guha,  et al.  Please convey my congrats and regards to Meeraji.

Comment 02 September 2012 TO: Mr. Rajinder Krishen,, I’m so happy to know that on 1st September 2012 Boloji.com stepped into its 14th year and also to have a better glimpse of what a large family it has grown into in the meantime by the support of a number of eminent persons, while it is hardly a year I have discovered this superb site and started contributing to it. While I’ll soon step into the octogenarian club and running a failing health, Boloji.com is certainly one of the not many noblest efforts I have come across in my long walk of life. I only wish, it gains perpetuity, all time remaining in the hands of competent persons with vision like you. While Boloji.com is already an aesthetic treasure house, with my small ability I have tried to enrich it with my translations of Rabindranath Tagore, however insignificantly. I do believe, Boloji.com will grow mightier with the passage of time and transmit its illumination to the posterity through the garbage of history. Yours sincerely, Rajat Das Gupta

Comment  I have been associated with boloji since the last decade.  I was inspired to write poetry, (an amateur talent I did not know I had), when I was to drawn to a competetion posted at the site, which to my surprise, I won!  I have seen Mr. Rajender Krishan toiling each week to publsh a new set of articles, editing and making it fit into the format (tireless work indeed).  He won my admiration and adulation because he never failed to do a remarkable job week after week.  This hobby of his must have been overwhelming him and his family but they did not relent.

It is great to see his success in creating a wonderful site for erudite writers to express their opinions.  It must be gratifying to see his nascent site from 1999 grow, bear fruit and turn into a handsome teenager today, resourceful and ingenious.  From the reader's feedback I know my own articles have been helpful to others as reference points, including to some of the universities.  This has given me immense satisfaction.

Thank you Rajender and family.  Keep up the high standard and your good work.

Boloji is instrumental in giving budding poets and writers a chance to expose their creativity One this special eve, I shall open my special bottle of Gwalior Champagne celebrating the 14the year of Boloji on an evening like this an african sun stranger than me coerces me to think of shadows longer than a life between us i think of only you at gwalior, the boloji love poems i sent u regularly u had them framed the ravines revelling in time separation in rusty corridors and ruthless summers too i love you i had said in boloji i still love you and the infiniteness of unbearing like a tiny drop of a day falling regularly still Amitabh

Comment  My relation to Boloji is only 2 months old. But these two months have given me a new concept of journalism. The great care and concern of an Editor for the writers are rare. To stand by a writer as a friend , philosopher and guide is a great feat. All these make Boloji a Parivar. Nowadays joint family concepts are disappearing and nuclear family is coming in its place.Boloji Family is enlarging itself day by day. It is a matter of pride to be with such  a news portal. The images chosen for each and every article without breaking the copyright rules  add to the creative and layout aspects of a news portal. Thanks and wish boloji the happy 14th birthday from the core of my heart as a freelancer as the portal is in the truest sense  provides a platform for sharing freedom in thought

Comment At the outset I thank the almighty for imbibing in me the skill to express. Here I wish to quote Rajaji's commentary on Bhajagovindam - "When intelligence matures and lodges securely in the mind, it becomes wisdom. When wisdom is integrated with life, and issues out in action, it becomes Bhakti" And in a poetic sense this Bhakti when given a form in verse gets transformed to "Poetry" All verse that remains within or with the poet is a futile exercise. And for the past fourteen years the hardship taken by Sri.Rajender Krishan ji is really a blessing to the community of poets. Especially for us now "Boloji" has become a way of life. as the lips urge for a sip of tea in the morning the hands reach out to the URL "http://www.boloji.com" and the eyes start searching for something new that is published....and life continues...till the end of the day... I pray for the growth and development of this portal on its 14th Anniversary and Thank RK ji for all his efforts he and his team has taken to keep it "Lively" - everyday....every moment....

Comment My congratulations on your 14th Anniversary and the splendid journey you have covered. What I appreciated most from my assosciation so far has been the 'Freedom of Expression' and which was a prerequisite which I requested when you invited me to contribute. All good ventures flourish with 'JUNOON' All good wishes for your continued success.

Comment Boloji thrived and will continue to grow because of its purity of purpose. Is it sheer coincidence that its birth was sparked by "Jay Jagdish Hare" ? May it continue to acquire more strength and influence worldwide!

Comment  Dear ALL!
My association with Boloji goes back quite a few years -- certainly more than a decade!
I miss dearly the 'friend' that through our Jyotish connection, one day suggested that I should write to Raju bhai! Always listening to 'Light and illumination', I succumbed to the INGIT!
He was right and I was meant to write and we all simply connected and the MAGIC just happened and ALL because of the DEDICATION of RAJU_bhai as I have always fondly addressed him as!
I had no clue that this was the birthday of our beloved BABY! I am a jyotishi but I often forget birthdays and anniversary dates for members of my family and extended cyber-family! (MEA CULPA).
Bravo Raj and Meera!

ORDINARY PARENTHOOD ...!
====================================
When they arrived; even before their faces were "seen"...
Their unmistakable presence was 'felt!'
As they grew -- bigger and increasingly' independent'
We sighed a sigh of relief
Chasing that illusory freedom that was meant to be 'just' that –  always just around the corner...!
But from that initial 'joy-filled response', ours more than theirs...
... arose an everlasting *bond* of responsibilities impossible to shake off --
Alive even through their infantile and juvenile attempts to escape and declare themselves FREE!
Only parents can survive the frustrations, anger and despondency; helplessly shedding a lonely tear...
...while still remaining connected to that first 'encounter'; That *moment* of creation ...!
Personally encountered, embraced and welcomed into our lives, FOREVER, no matter what!

Comment  From Mr Rajendra Krishan to Rajendra Bhayi-that has been my association with Boloji, since April 2006. Boloji deserves not just accolades but all the love from the readers and contributors. 
The way Boloji has been making strides, I am sure it will spread far and widw and the number of hits on the website would go on ever increasing.
Best wishes

Comment It is surprising that before crossing its 'TEENS', Boloji had promoted so many writers and viewers. Personally I am grateful to Rajenderji for his continued patronage for my views and writings on several topics and also many times adding a personal touch to the writer in enthusing him or he to write more. 

I am sure in the coming years Rajenderji's boloji will be the most sought after medium of many aspiring and established writers to express themselves without fear or favor on a variety of topics. 

Many more Happy Returns of the Day to the third and the youngest kid of Rajenderji!

Comment  Dear Rajender Ji,

                                A very informative and interesting note on the BIrth and attaining of adolescence by BoloJi.

Although very Indian in name, Bolo Ji is one of the best English e-magazines, for which you and your wife deserve

all praise.

                               
                                 Congrats. and best wishes,
