Over the next few days I went back to Niall’s blog and read almost all his archives. His sensitivity, and some of the things he had written made me cry. I hesitatingly ventured forth to leave my nervous comments (Here I was, totally awed by a really talented person—Was I even ‘qualified’ to comment on such brilliant work?) I was pleasantly surprised by his response. He was prompt, warm and delighted to hear from me. (and so very humble too!) After that, we were constantly in touch through emails and our respective blogs. We learnt so much about each other, each other’s cultures, countries, perspectives. Our wavelengths and way of thinking matched, on so many things.
Niall is a person who updates his blog every single day (unlike some of us!) showing us, his progress, on the picture, he is currently working on. Sometime back, when he did not update his blog for four consecutive days, I called him up from India, and we spoke briefly. Later, he sent me a mail saying “You are real, Preeti!” and I laughed at that.
If I rave anymore about Niall, you may begin to think that he paid me to write this piece about him! Hop over to his blog and see for yourself, what I am so impressed about. Scroll down, click on the pictures and see them enlarged, only then one sees the dots. His work is so fine and precise. Oh– if you arent too awestruck, please leave him a comment too! 🙂
