A Rare Honour!!!


An award no less!!! Praveen S. R., the honest and no-nonsense crusader is the one who has conferred this rare honour, having received his just the day before 🙂 !!! Thank you, Praveen!

As I wrote about my grandmother, into the blog post yesterday, I had these visions of walking through the paddy fields, with my grandmother, and cousins, around the month of December (years and years ago…), when many of the fields were green, a lush green, and along with it the vision of a lot of dragon flies, (thumbi) and yellow butterflies. I sighed as I wrote it, leaning back in my chair, soaking in nostalgia. My maternal side of the family no longer own any of those fields; all of it has been sold 😦 But the butterflies lingered, in that beautiful memory 🙂

And this morning, as I eagerly open the Dashboard for views, reads and to succumb to more blogaddiction (IHM, you certainly knew the symptoms!!!), I am greeted with Praveen’s delightful responses, and a new post of his to read, in which he has very kindly and graciously passed on an award he himself had just received! The Butterfly Award! Thank you, Praveen!! [and you get a link on this post too!!!] A butterfly to grace this space!! Goosebumps !!!

So, as Instructed in the Ways of Award Presentation and Conferring, this is what has to be done, as I understand, from Praveen 🙂

1. Put the logo on the blog. [I’ve put it on both of mine, I hope that is ok :)]

2. Add a link to the person who presented it to you.

3. Pass this one, and link other bloggers that you’d like to share it with.

I’d love the following bloggers to please accept this :



Shalini Devraj

Indian Home Maker


Corinne Rogdrigues

Prabhu Dutta Das

Sandeep Balan



Salil Ravindran


And congratulations to all of you too!!
