It all started quite a while ago, the Awards Ceremonies, in my corner of Blog-o-sphere. And to my delight, and utter and pleasant surprise, there are more and more of those who feel I could be given more :)! These wonderful souls are gracious to say the least, finding that particular something in the limits of the space here, that they gift and share these prized sentiments and awards. Thank you to all of you, all, and all… not just the givers and the sharers, but all those who have dropped in and shared my rambles and wandered aimlessly with me on Overdrive!
I’d like to list the givers and the Trophies 🙂 below. Each comes with its own unique and beautifully crafted picture, that we can all be proud to display on our blogs, and share in its appreciation! Also, I would like to then pass them onward, to light up more blogs! And to share in that fuzzy warmth that I now bask in 🙂
Have already acknowledged the receipt and the sharing of one, The Proximity Award, given by Indian HomeMaker, Dhiren [Hitchwriter], Deeps, Rukhiya, Shail and Prabhu Dutta Das, at my other blog, on this post, The Honour of Proximity .
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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Indyeah, she takes me down these trips fantastic, down memory lane 🙂 and shares with such intensity and passion her perspective, that it’s a pleasure to read and spend time at her blog 🙂
Corinne Rodrigues Everyday Inspirations, that is Corinne for me 🙂
Omana, a good friend, and very new to blogging, [which incidentally I am too, but I can safely say now at least, that there is a newer blogger I know :)] and an awesome poet, who writes in Malayalam. She has just begun and I know there is more that will be shared in days to come. This is yours, Omana, in anticipation of all that I know I shall feast upon, on your blog 🙂
Nikhil, for the rollicking humour in the way he delivers satire, for his informative posts, and for being very entertaining with posts and notes by way of comments 🙂
Prabhu Dutta Das
[Salil, now you can claim, thrice was I offered the Kingly Crown, and thrice did I decline, lol! To all the others, this refers to the delightful note that Salil, Sal, left with this post :)]
[though she has just learned the ropes, she certainly writes beautifully in Malayalam!]
The Poet Award , shared by Meena
This Award Especially goes to [gentle strains of the violin and piano… :)]
[for her verses in Malayalam that give me goosebumps!]
for all the beautiful poetry they share:), and make my quest for nuances of words all the more delightful!
PS. This has been a long time in the oven [from the beginning of this year :)]. It would now seem to be done, though not as well as I would like to have it 🙂 Still the garnishing is beautiful, with all those lovely pictures of the awards, and I shall serve it this way; hoping that it will reach all of you too!
Edited to Add:
What goes around, comes around, we have been endlessly reminded. But this once I love that saying, and how it translates into such a pleasant and awesome reality:) Indyeah shows me how!! IMAO, she rocks!!! [Practising Lingo :D, and stating fact simultaneously!!!!!!!]
Thanks a tri-zillion [just made it up, for infinity, lol!] for …. well, words fail me 🙂 My comment is there, for now..as I’m still catching my breath, at the breadth of emotion there!!

Re-edited.. LOL!: Indyeah’s comment tells me of occupational hazards and earnest learners, and brilliant goof-ups because of a slip between the thought and the keyboard :D!!! IMHO, she’s going to be a great teacher, for the simple fact that she knows how to undo what most of us would very very squeamishly hesitate to do 😀 😀 :D!
And so it comes to be that I must state that yes, In My Humble Opinion, she does truly ROCK!!!
[Connectivity problem yesterday, so I could post the comment, but not update here 🙂 Do excuse me!!]
