A feather in one’s cap

I have been nominated for 2 awards by my 2 wonderful and brilliant fellows from this space in the beginning this new month of an innovative year of hopes and dreams which has to come through! Well, it was all because of my present busy schedules these days and some other personal issues, I was unable to look at its publication and hence I do apologize both of them for the delay in updating this award nomination post.

The award which I received at first was “Leiebster  Blog Award” from Soumya Dheedhi and Sofia, who are two among my favorite writers in this space. Soumya Dheedhi always do magic with the random poetry stuffs which expresses her well profound and mirthful contents. She can easily play with the normative words of expressions via her posts that strike every reader’s mind by the delicate opening of her thought provoking gleams. Now, a brief description about Sofia would be a bit hard job for me to share about I guess. She is SIMPLY ‘AWESOME’ in all respects as a writer who is especially concentrated in ‘ROMANTIC’ supremacy. I came to know about her ONLY by the end of ‘2012’ or birth of ‘2013’ it seems. What makes her PERFECT as a writer is the variety of contents she used to share for her readers itself. As a reader whenever I see her update in my mail account, there exists some keen curiosity in me for knowing about the contents she has added during this time! If you’re searching for kinda dandy articles, I strongly suggest Sofia’s world for it.

As per the rules provided for receiving of this award, I must have to answer some interesting queries attached to it.

1. What makes you happiest?  

Whenever I used to think about my days with my dear and near ones.

2. Do you love the Ocean or the Mountains more? 

I do love Mountains for a better refreshment cause of its silent atmosphere.

3. What has been your favorite moment of 2012?  

With my sister during Onam vacation.

4. What is your favorite quote and why? 

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
John F. Kennedy

A thought provoking quote which serves +ve hope in life!

5. Do you like yourself?  

101%! 😉

6. Do you stay up till the Stroke of Midnight on New Years Eve?  

Of course!

7. Something you wish you get it done ASAP?  

The short-film project which I’m doing now.

8. What was your favorite class while still in school?  

Social studies.

9. What musical instrument have you tried to learn to play?  


10. Anything you wish you had learned earlier?

The skill of MIMICRY!

11. Do you like to do crafts or draw or even paint?

“The Beautiful Blogger Award” was the 2nd one for which I have been nominated from Sofia again. I’m so much obliged to receive this honor too from you, wise lady. As per the rules, I have to state 7 random facts about me and you could check it out here in my Audible Facts page. The nominees for which I’m going to give this award are:






Thank you so much, Soumya Dheedhi and Sofia for passing me these glittering nomination tag! I’m so much obliged to receive it from both of you. Congratulations to all who got nominated as well. Have a great time ahead for all of you, WP blooms. God bless. Cheers.\m/ 🙂


Blog of the Year 2012!

I have been nominated for ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award by one among the versatile writers in my WP blooms list. Thank you so much for reminding me during the selection procedures and nominating for this honor, Kim.  I’m so much glad to receive this interesting nomination from ya. Those who haven’t know this lady can check out her blog here. Wide variety of indulging poetries and genial stories are waiting for you over there. Have a nice read through her posts, folks.

As we all are going to float up into an innovative year by the end of very next month, this award can be considered as a notable one with this year’s (2012’s) specific tag I guess.

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information, check out the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

Now, here comes the most difficult pursuit while receiving the award nominations which always stuck with me in this space. Better if I say, “for all of us”. Nominating few among the 300’s of my pals, who all are good in one or other part of their writing task on my blog contacts list would be a rough cum half heartened job ya know? Anyway, as per the rules mentioned above, I must have to nominate a few for this honor. This domain always serves me ecstatic pleasure and encouragements via likes and comments for my little posts over here. Hence I specially dedicate this tag for all of my fellow followers in WP sphere. Thank you so much for your sincere supports and cares for an aspiring blogger like me. Here are my nominees for this award:

1) http://awakeandfindingpurpose.wordpress.com/
2) http://carolineskanne.wordpress.com/
3) http://adventurousandrea.com/
4) http://deliberatelydelicious.wordpress.com/

One Lovely Blog Award

First of all, my apologies for the delay in updating this Award Nomination post, “One Lovely Blog Award” , which was handed over to me by the 3 wise teenage gals of prominence in their highly creative and ecstatic thoughts- SheikhNina and Sheevi respectively. Thank you so much for nominating me for this honor, gals. 🙂 I’m so much glad to receive this award from you. 🙂 The only major condition I have seen for accepting this award is sharing the 10 FACTS about me, which is already avail there on my headed page tag. You can check that out here:

Audible facts!

Now here comes the most difficult process on this award nomination procedure, which is always a “??” in front of me while taking part on this ceremony! Being a part of this blogging community, how could I select 10 among my fellow followers as nominees? It would be really hard enough to choose 10 most prominent followers, since I value each and every fellow-beings ‘INSIGHTS’ rather than the ‘QUALITY’ of the contents they are sharing via their-own world. This time, I would give preference for those, whom I haven’t nominated yet for any of the awards I had got. So here are my 10 nominees for this lovely blogger tag:











In order to continue the practice, here are the rules nominees:

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you
  2. Post the award image to your page.
  3. Tell seven facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 10 other blogs
  5. Let them know they are nominated

Once again, thank you so much for remembering me during your award nomination process, Sheikh, Nina and Sheevi. My Heart-felt congratulations to all the fellow blooms, who gets nominated too. Have a great day ahead my WP family members. Cheers.\m/ 🙂

With love,
