My First Award...

28th April 2012: I was on my way from Ahmedabad to Delhi by road, and was bored like anything. And then, just to cut the boredom, I thought of checking my e-mail through the mobile phone. I remember there were 21 unread e-mails in 2 days, but there was one which was standing out all the way. "Indu Chhibber has sent you an IndiMail", the subject line said. I opened the message, which said "Please view this for a surprise gift". For some unknown reason, I couldn't open it at that time. It was still 3:30 PM and we were hoping to be back to Delhi only at 01:00 AM, late in the night. All through the way, all I thought was what possibly could this "gift" be. I was dying to get back to home, and see what exactly lie behind that e-mail. Finally, we reached home at about 01:45 AM, tired, with a wish to get straight to bed and no one to disturb. But all this tiredness was vanished, atleast till the time I came to know what exactly was the "gift". I was overwhelmed with joy and happiness when I came to know what was there behind that link. 

It was "The Versatile Blogger" award.

I had been to various blogs, and seen this same picture on their sidebars, and had always thought of the day when I'd be getting the same. I knew there was still time for me to get to that position. But this came as a surprise, a happy surprise. I had never expected this to come so early. All I have to say is Thank You Induji for believing in me and my work. This actually encourages me to write more. I can't express how happy and joyful I am at the moment. This is probably the most exciting and happy moment for me. I hope to meet up your expectations and come up with more posts in the time to come. 

Now, coming to the formalities. Every award has certain conditions to be fulfilled, and this is no exception. 

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a picture of the award on your blog.
  3. Share 7 random thoughts about yourself.
  4. Choose 7 bloggers to pass the award to.
  5. Inform them about it.
The first and the second points have already been covered. Coming to the third.

.:| 7 Random Thoughts About Me |:.
  1. I'd rather prefer a holiday at a deserted place, than a more "developed" place.
  2. I don't mind spending the rest of my life with an Internet connection and a laptop. 
  3. I can type/write more than I can speak.
  4. I like playing with a screw driver.
  5. I plan to read books of all religions, including the mythological stories.
  6. I like to read random facts. 
  7. Missiles, Rockets and Intelligence agency fascinate me. 

Now, coming to the difficult task. I don't actually think I have the capabilities yet to judge a blog, but I'll list some of the blogs, that I really enjoy reading. There are a whole list of blogs that I enjoy, but I'm just going to list only those who have not been awarded this yet. So, here is my list. (The list is totally random in all sense)

So, this was my list. Once again, a big Big BIG thank you Induji, for this lovely surprise. I don't have words to thank you.
