Writer’s block is what I am going through I guess. Either I don’t have much to write or I dont have the time. I wonder when this will end. It will end some day for sure , that I know.
Meanwhile , please bear with me. As for now , here are tiny winy updates.
I received my Indus Lady Cap as a participation gift in women’s day contest for this piece of writing. Its a lovely cap , but I have been forgetting to click a pic everyday. Thanks a lot Indus Ladies !

These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this text into the body of their award.

If its raining awards , who won’t like it 🙂 So lets change the rhyme like , “Rain Rain Don’t Go Away” 🙂
After the Brilliant award by Mama Mia and Puja , the same comes from PG and life begins and here is what they said
PG says , ” I like her style of writing, her directness and honesty with which she writes her posts. It is a big pleasure to read about her dear son Aryan she dotes on. She was also the initiater of the blog Healthy and Tasty. Her blogs look beautiful. The topics are as interesting and not so rarely thought provoking.”Life Begins said : “I would have loved to award this to you too – But I know you have already been awarded. You are great writers and inspirers. Keep writing!!”
And then comes this one from ~nm , the blogging friends forever award.
Thank you ~nm , I am touched. And I pass this on to
Asha : I know her from when we both just started blogging and I think we bonded well since then
Monika & Ansh : A recent friend , but special
Puja : I love her for her short to the point posts
Aargee : She is a very emotional person. I hardly knew her before I landed in her house for my first blog meet and we are friends since then.
Neera : I like her for the way she writes. Clear , honest and right from heart.
Another award comes from PG who called me a Million dollar friend. This is what she writes :
“This curiosity was always there, to get to know her, as I happen to know her hubby, but haven’t got the opportunity to meet her. But, then I got to know of her blogs and liked them immidiately – her good writings and the lovely stories about her Aryan, which i have been reaing since about a year now. So, until we meet one day, for now do with this award…. :)”
Thank you PG. I never knew much about you except what was told by my husband. But I discoved so much about you through your blog and you sure are a wonderful person to know.
Now again , its my turn to pass this on and I send it accross to some people who will be my friends forever beyond this virtual world of blogs.
~nm : You know you are special and I don’t need to say more.
Mama Mia : Blog or no blog , you are a million dollar friend.
COS : You are a sisterly kind of figure for me , I don’t know when and why you became special to me.
Pixie : We share a bond beyond any words , again don’t ask me when how and why please.
WIAN : Since the time I know blog world , you have been there as one of my best friends.
AM : Were you my twin sister once upon a time ? Why did you stop writing dear.
Each of the blogs that I passed the awards on to have been special to me. All of these lovely ladies , speak their heart out.
Editted to Add : K3 also called me a million dollar friend in her own unique way , she calls me, “The ‘glowing’ Ms. Extraordinaire “. Now do I need more reasons to be on cloud 11. Thank you K3. You made my day!
Thank you ladies , I am on cloud 9.
Here are the details about the award.

So now I go on passing this award to 7 brilliant blogs :
Gauri : Her blog is my guide to motherhood. She writes about two super smart kids and how she manages to raise them the way they are !
Manasi : She is the woman of today , creative and innovative.
Indian Home Maker : Her blog is my food for thought 🙂
Soliatre : Her blog is like a breeze of fresh air to brighten my day.
PG : She , her thoughts , her kid and her kitchen stories , I totally adore all of them 🙂
Vidooshak : I look upto his blog for all thats happening around the world 🙂
Trishna : I love her blog for the honesty with which she writes and for the antics of Aadya 🙂
MummyJaan bestowed me with this lovely award. She also digged down to the reason for the award and the creator of the award said so :
“This award will be awarded to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!”
I am flattered. I never thought someone thought that I have a positive influence in out blogging world 😛 or for that matter, any influence all together.
Thank you MummyJaan for calling me a good blogging friend and a nice person too, I wish everyone around me think the same 🙂
I am also obliged with the privelege to acknowledge some of the other blogger , who I feel are NICE …ohh there are so many ..
When I just took the break ..I was awarded by two of my blogger friends ..Collection Of Stars and Pixie and this is what they said about me respectively:
“She leaves the most apt comments. I think she has shut shop for some time but I hope she gets back real soon.”
“She too writes well, her posts have always left a mark on my mind and she always comments on my posts! :-)”
So like it always happens ..the person who is awarded is asked , “How do you feel Today ?”
I did the same to myself ..”How do I feel..did I expected this ?” I feel great , excited and enthusiastic ..and I never expected this. This blog was started spontaneously one day and the purpose was just to pen down my thoughts.Something like a daily diary. As it went on , I figured that it works great to stress out. Also I enjoyed getting opinions from strangers (not so strangers now) about the deepest of my thoughts , without being judged.
So the journey continued ..and this daily diary of mine became a hobby and a passion. Writing a few lines and reading some from others , works like a great stress buster. I know that there are people who think alike , who face similiar problems , who live a life like I do. And also , people with a different outlook , which is not that bad too.It also became my way to socialize and interact with the world beyond work and home. So my husband who often asks me , as to why I am so emotionally attached to my blog , would have got his answers probably.
And , now that I know that a few people do look forward to read from me , IT DOES MAKE ME FEEL GREAT ..THANK YOU COS ,PIXIE and ALL THOSE WHO READ FROM ME.
So now that I am done with my Thank You speech ..its my turn to make someone’s day.. 😀
Gauri : For the effort she puts in each post.
WIAN : For her honest and timely comments and her simple and straight forward writing.
MNAmma : For managing twins and blogging so well and commenting so often ..hats off 🙂
