About Locomente

Hello dear reader…

First things first!

I always wanted to mark my footprints and own a tiny space in the vast area of blogosphere. But, I kept delaying it because I could not come up with a suitable name! I thought and thought. I thought further. But, what I came up with was either normal or already taken.

One day, I was feeling very bored. So, decided to just google and search for something. That thought per se sounded crazy to me. So, I searched how Crazy Mind can be translated into French, Japanese, Italian and even Bengali. And, when I saw the Spanish translation, I knew that this was it!


Thus, I named my blog as LOCOMENTE…
A conglomeration of two Spanish words:
Loco – Crazy
Mente – Mind


Incidentally, if you read Locomente as Logamende, it means “The World is Mine” in Malayalam. I felt elated with this revelation – a wonderful word that brings the west and us together J

So, Yahoo!!!
My blog was born on a Diwali afternoon in October 2011.
(Though a long way to go!! After all… Miles to go before I sleep, as Robert Frost poetically remarked)

Dear readers, I hope that my blog become synonym to one-stop nest in blogosphere which offers a cocktail of different genre - stories, poems, book and movie reviews, personal thoughts and experiences, photography and much more!

Well, as I romance words… come and fall in love with my words :)

Yours truly,

Locomente

  9. It just occured to me sometime back that , besides the obvious literal meaning in French and Spanish that denotes your Blog name- "Locomente" in Malayalam can mean, "My World". I guess that is also apt as the craziness of the mind.

    1. It could mean that also...
      In fact, when I had coined my blog name some years before, a few friends thought that it is Logamente !
