A blog award!

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award!!

I have not got these nominations before and so I was surprised that folks like my blog. Thank You Himani Agarwal for stopping by and giving me a vote of confidence. [Do not like the PINK colour though : ( ]

Some Googling threw up this “The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. “Liebster” is German for “favorite”. This award is the favorite blog award then.

These awards mandate that you cannot keep it and are meant to be shared. The award is but a chain mail, but it never hurts to share some appreciation and affirmation which is wanted dearly by everyone. So this is my affirmation and appreciation and in the spirit of this mail here are the rules: -

a. Post 11 Things about yourself
b. Answer 11 questions from nominator
c. Choose 11 deserving bloggers and link them in your post
d. Set 11 questions for them.
e. Inform the nominee by commenting on one of their posts.

So, here come eleven things about me in no particular order-

1.          I am unique (mother Earth will not be able to have another me)
2.          I love to sing and my favourite is Gospel
3.          I love comics and believe that I will read them always
4.          I think that biriyani is the most complete dish ever invited
5.          I know that the happiest I will be is at home
6.          I know that home is Chennai
7.          I am sentimental
8.          I am an idealist and worse I expect the same of others
9.          I believe in God and I am grateful to Him for what I am
10.      I love my family and my extended family and know that they make Heaven (& Hell) here on earth
11.      I am still learning the meaning of the word Satisfaction

Now I need to answer 11 questions set by Himani.

Thanks a ton, Clement.

First off: I do have more than 200 followers.

Second: I don't do tags on my primary blog but collect my awards and record them in my gratitude blog.

Three: If it suits you fine, I could answer 11 questions here but the catch is, you should choose 11 for me ;)

Thanks again and congrats on the Blog award.

Joy always,
