The “One Lovely Blog” Award

A heartfelt thank you to Lopa of http://lopascribes.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for this award. This is what she had to say:

“I am honoured to nominate you for the One Lovely Blog Award! Please pick-up your award at http://lopascribes.wordpress.com/. Copy and Paste the Award to your blog and follow the rules of acceptance. I am very aware that some people do not wish to participate in Awards, and I completely respect that… no strings! But in any case, Congratulations, you have a Lovely Blog.”

Lopa, short for Lopamudra, which is a lovely Indian name, writes about a variety of subjects, and occasionally brings forth hidden facets of the history that is commonly known, which make for interesting reading. My complaint with her blog is that she is irregular in posting. I hope she is able to contribute more regularly.

Thanks again Lopa.

That was, incidentally, the first part of the award process, which is “give credit to the awesome person who nominated you”. Since Lopa’s blog speaks for itself, that was the easy part.

I will now blithely overlook the uncomfortable second part of the acceptance process, which is “describe 7 things about yourself” and move directly to the third, which is “nominate 15 other bloggers”.

Here they are (in no specific order):

The rules of the award are what have been passed on :

1. Give credit to the awesome person who nominated you.

2. Describe 7 things about yourself.

3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Through the short period I have been blogging, I have had the opportunity of reading some unique and wonderful creations, on a varied set of subjects. I hope to spread the joy and pleasure that I get from reading their blogs by nominating a few of them for the One Lovely Blog Award and hope that readers who stumble upon my blog will also find a way to theirs.

Though unrelated to the Award, I also want to make a general request to all readers to try and leave comments on the posts they read and which touch them in some way.

  1. Thank you so much…and once again I want to say that you truly deserve this award!!
    And for your complaint, it’s a complaint that even I’ve against myself. I am trying my best to write regularly, and let me tell you, your complaint is a huge encouragement. 🙂

  2. Congratulations Ankur – thank you also for thinking of me. I’ve dropped off for about a month now and glad to be remembered.

    For some reason I’m not receiving updates of your posts and will ‘follow’ again. Let’s see how it goes.

    Cheers, Eric 🙂
