Privacy or shelling

Firstly something about my meeting with Karun. It went fantastic.Karun is as he portrays on Internet. Exactly, just I imagined him 10kgs lighter hehehe.
Just now I was talking to a friend about her blog which I have started reading. She told me she didn't want many people to read her blog and that was reason she didn't advertise her blog. Is she yearning for privacy or is this an action of shelling oneself. I know that we all need privacy we all have to keep certain things strictly to ourselves, I don't contest that at all. What I am saying is that where the line of privacy seeking nature end and that of self protective wall building nature begin? Can it be found out? ever?
I mean if you take the pains of expressing your thoughts through a medium, is it a need of privacy to keep those hidden? Then why write it in first place? I know all cannot be intended for all audience, but then we can always choose how much to reveal to whom...
I have always made the mistake of shelling myself under the false veil of privacy. Something I regret many a times. This false veil is the biggest chicanery one can do to oneself. The moment you try to restrict access you create a barrier that deceives you, the barrier projects a screen a mirage of security when in fact it is preventing the mind from opening up new frontiers.
I recall a very famous dialogue from television serial "Andromeda". The situation is like captain person meets a very odd alien and talks to him, and while talking the weird alien alludes at the presence of many more weird alien species, the captain contradicts the weird alien...then he says..

"Captain, you claim to be an explorer?? Then open your mind to new possibilities"

Same way everyone has to open up his/her mind to new things, far from being held up in old shells of false security, try new frontiers. Who knows this may be the same thing you were searching for? Give up the false sense of privacy, privacy is essential indeed but it should not stop a person from being free and independent.

A very relevant song for occasion, here the song talks about the hesitance about love, but its the same about anything in life.
Here is Mitwa..

Teri nigaahen, paa gayi raheinpar tu yeh soche jaaun na jaaunyeh
zindagi jo hai naachti tohkyon bediyon mein hai tere paanv
preet ki dhun par naach le paaga ludta agar hai udne de aanchal
kaahe koi apne ko aaise tarsaaye jo hai ankahee jo hai ansuni woh baat kya hai bata

Dear Vibhav,
Its neither that I have built walls around me,nor I have I not publicized my blog.Only I wanted to remain as anonymous as possible to be maximally candid in all my writings.

And the only reason I didn't tell YOU about my blog was that I am a small fish compared to you.Who can match your mercury :).

I had no idea if you'd like to read mine.But I am really flattered that you approved it.
