It feels good : Sunshine and Versatile

imageimage

Who doesn’t like recognition?

Who doesn’t like an applause?

Who doesn’t like a pat on the back in that not-so-perfect-day?

After all, Who does not like to be liked?…..

Seriously, most of us do as beneath this facade of flesh and blood, race and gender, nationality and nomads, we all have a quirky little apparatus called ‘heart’ and somewhere it craves for validation being human. So thank you for this honour and having trust on my ability. At least it makes me feel that I am pulling it off.

I am not going to say, this is my first one and I never got an award or so. But just that I am one regular girl who won some and lost some. But what makes this one special is the fact, that I have been blogging for a short span of three and a half month only and this is a real boost to my spirit. Thank you AnoopΒ Pillai from http://anooppillaiz.wordpress.com as you felt I am deserving enough to be on the list. And I really admire your honest reading and penchant for writing and sharing, which reflects in your blog…wishing you good days ahead. I thank Ruchi Chopra too for conferring me with the same. Ruchi’s blog @ http://ruchi2312.wordpress.com/ reflects her warm and affable disposition filled with vibrancy of nature captured through her eyes.

Let me not waste one more minute for thanking all my readers, the commentators, the followers and for the likings, who in this small passage of time have given me tremendous acknowledgement. It feels good.

Questions Please:

  • Favorite Food : I am a food lover; a gourmet..so any food cooked and served that matches my palate.
  • Favorite Actor : Quite a few and it keeps changing according to movie and genre….but if you insist Russell Crowe, Gerard Butler and currently Lupita Nyong.
  • Favorite TV show : I am a girl’s girl on this…Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives.
  • Favorite Tear Jerker : Roberto Benigni’s Life is Beautiful.
  • Favorite Sport : Tennis, all time favourite.
  • Lucky number : Any number which brings me luck….do let me know if you find one.
  • Tea or Coffee : There’s nothing like a hot cuppa burnt, mutty choclatey coffee on my mug and the aroma while it’s drizzling out.
  • Holidays : How much I love holidays but that reminds me we need a holiday….JB(my dear husband)….where are you? .. Can you not pick up the call?
  • Twitter or FB : FB all the way that has some of my close friends on the list and I love to be in touch with them.
  • Favorite Christmas movie : PS I love you.

  1. I know everyone does not like awards – but one thing I like about them is when people share their answers tot he questions – and I enjoyed reading yours! and if you need a lucky number – 23 is a pretty good one – just kidding….
    anyhow, I also like what you said about the pat on the back –

    have a great day! πŸ™‚

    • Liking or not, You know what each one has their own perspective and I respect that….more than the award, for me it’s a symbol..that someone likes your effort. Someone validates your ability…and there’s no madness in accepting that. Let’s keep life lil simpler…it helps. Thank you…for liking what I wrote..what matters more people reading me.

  2. Two of the movies you’ve mentioned in the post are some of my favourites. ‘Life is Beautiful’ holds a very very special place in my heart. Been exploring your blog today and I’ve been enjoying it πŸ™‚

  3. You deserve recognition and encouragement. I always enjoy your work, and I look forward to reading more of it!
    P.S.

    I genuinely appreciate your nomination. Encouragement from readers is what keeps me writing…or at least sharing the crazy things I write:)

  4. Three and a half sounds so cool! You reminded me of the old days when my blog was a new born and it received these little surprises. Feels great na?! πŸ˜€ Cherish these moments dear coz when you are ‘two and something’ blogger the joy of receiving these awards would have drained out and you’ll really miss it, miss everything about being a newbie!
    Anyways, hearty congratulations and may you receive many more πŸ˜€

    Wow. Congrats.
    I am a particular fan of versatile bloggers because you (we) are not confined to a theme or bound by any boundaries.
    You’re not fixated on only one realm and that give you the versatility to write about anything you wish to. Basically, all you do is write. That’s all that matters.

    Congrats again. I’m glad to read you…
