Hurrah! My first ever Blog Award! 🙂

  1. Good Day Tanumoy,
    It has been my good fortune to find your blog and read some of your posts. I have also discovered of late, much to my smiling delight, that the written thoughts and posts of others from your part of the cosmos are also incredibly beautiful. You and your guests write English like I’m supposed to, but can’t.
    If I knew a salute in your language I would offer it to you but I don’t so I will just say “Thank You” and keep following. Perhaps I will learn.

    • Ah sir, I’m humbled greatly. 🙂
      In my native language Bengali I present a sweet “Dhonnobaad” (English: ‘Thank You’) to you. It’s a treat to have you here in my blog… so much of diversity, yet all united by humanity. I strongly believe that the mutual symbiotic flow of thoughts among all of us here makes our stay worth much more than heavens may offer.
      Good day to you, sir. 🙂

      • It certainly works inspiring.
        PS. love your name, with such a name you have no choice but to become a world-renowned writer. It really has that ring to it.
        “Have you read the latest book of Tanumoy Biswas?”

        Sounds good.

        • Woa! That felt great! *a Bro-Ho! to you* (Bro-Ho! is my way of greeting, with clinched fists meeting. 😛 ) You are officially my new pole star whenever I’ll be looking for some desperate drops of inspiration. Thank you! 🙂

          And like the Jamaican legend once said, “Bob Marley isn’t my name. I don’t even know my name yet”… I’ll try to get better and better. 🙂

  2. A big congrats to you! Glad you are enjoying blogging. One of the best things is meeting different people from around the world.

    • Oh absolutely! And thank you!
      It’s a pleasure to have so many great souls around, and learning so much in the process. A treat! Glad to know your thoughts as well. 🙂

  3. In these few things you tell us about you…………you paint an incredible tapestry, for these are the colors of beauty (of simple truths)………. I found myself nodding as I read each one. Thank you, my friend. ~ Love, Bobbie

    • I can’t thank you enough for the amount of inspiration I extract from your verses. And like its said, “What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies,” it’s an eternal gift to have you here. Cheers! 🙂

  7. Hiii. Thanks for your contribution towards making my blog what it is. Please accept my nomination for the VERY INSPIRING BLOGGER AWARD. Please visit my blog for details. Congratulations 🙂

    • WOW! Thanks Michael! Yayy! This is a miracle! Hallelujah!
      This award is such an honouring one… the name says it all! Congrats to you for the award, and I can’t explain how happy I am on being gifted this award! I just can’t! 😀

      Just one request: please give me some time for making the acceptance post, which I will surely do. I have to! Yayy again! *all smiles* 🙂

  8. You are welcome bro. You are indeed very inspiring to me and other bloggers. Thanks for all the “head-swelling” 🙂 sweet words. Please take all the time you need. But hey ! More awards are comingggggg 🙂

    • Oh wow! Thank you so much, sir! 😀 This is such a unique honour! I really have no idea if my humble blog deserves to be among such a great list of awesome blogs, but I’ll gleefully accept this. And I humbly request you to give me a while, as you know the formalities take up some time, and I’m (unfortunately) a perfectionist. 😛 Thank you once again! *pronaam* *yayy* 😛

      • Yes I know very well, formalities take time. You take your own time, no problem at all. I do not force anybody to accept the award. That’s why in my nomination, I always say “if you accept…”.
        Glad to know that you are a perfectionist. I like them because its a rare quality in today’s world.
        All the best,
        Have a nice time.
