Well, it’s been a while I had some gifts stored safely in my locker, all waiting to be shared with the lovely people around. But firstly, I have a list of wonderful bloggers to thank:
1. Archita: A charming lens-lady, spreading positive vibes around. Her posts will make you look at life differently for sure. Thank you Archita for the two lovely award nominations! Experience her world here.
3. The blog Belsbror (the title was chosen in recognition of the author’s younger sister): An aspiring novelist and a challenging realist, his insights and opinions are a treat to read. Thank you for the shining award nomination. Read his thoughts here.
4. Tazein Mirza Saad: An inspiring lady with some beautiful thoughts, she has this wonderful ability to reach your heart with her spiritual posts. Thank you so much for the three awesome award nominations! Visit her blog here.
Mr. ‘M-Square’… he is one person who can tickle the funny bone, even during the toughest of times, with his ever-joyful demeanour and innocent words. I must admit, God was very kind to us when He decided: “Ok, let the mortals have some fun now!” And thus appeared Michael Monday on this earthly realm, always ready to share his joy and fill every soul he meets with his radiance. Stephen King once said: “Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down, but it takes a genius to make people laugh.” This was precisely written for you, Michael. Thank you for the wonderful nominations (here and here). You truly are one gem of a person!

Now, the TWO wonderful Awards which were gifted to me (I must admit the names almost have a Blog Oscar jingle!):
Gift. The greatest gift you can ever give another person is your own happiness. And that’s what Aditi did. “I have nominated you for a bunch of awards,” is what she wrote, and Voila! The moment I read it, I was like … (yeah exactly, it was … !) Stunned to silence for some few good minutes, before I gained my mortal status, owing to an infallible power cut and a jealous tropical summer.
Say ‘Hi’ to Aditi Mittal! A charming young lady who loves travelling, is opinionated and headstrong, and can be brutal if required. (Beware!) For she can charm you not only with her demeanour, but also with her words. And so, getting nominated for a platter of awards from such a graceful and vibrant personality like hers is a treat indeed. Thank you Aditi for the multiple honours! To read her tales, visit her lovely web journal here. 🙂
Now coming to the Awards, there are FOUR of them. Mighty ones! I was a bit curious about what they actually stand for. So I did a bit of research on them and came across some interesting details. Some are directly explained and some inferred. A charming collection, no doubt!

Ok! So this is sweet and funny!
“Hi, my friend. Your posts always make me feel like going for a degree in English Language,” said Michael, while sending this lovely gift on a hot afternoon. Well, I wish I was an English Major too! Alas, I’m not! 😀
So, meet Michael Monday. Educationist. Adviser. Business Management Specialist. Blogger. And above all, a Great Friend with a Pure Soul. It’s a privilege to be nominated by a person like him for such a Super Sweet Blog Award. Thanks Michael for honouring me with this sweet gesture. Let’s make this world… SWEET! 🙂 To read his inspirational articles, kindly visit here.
So, after some sunshine, it’s time to make this world a sweeter place to be… not just through words or promises, but by touching every soul. Sweetness defies gravity and even a heavy burden of life vanishes under its charm. And thus it has been during my journey though the ‘blogosphere’… meeting so many sweet people, having a great time talking to them, sharing glimpses of me with them, and learning so much. Thank you to all! I shall end with Andy Rooney’s quote: “Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.” 😛
Hurrah! My first ever Blog Award! 🙂
Thank you so much Kavita Joshi for nominating me for the SHINE ON AWARD. She is a great person to be around and learn from (even virtually), and has a wondrously versatile blog. I would recommend all to visit her web log here.
Just 22 days of my experience in the ‘blogosphere’ and a challenge has been hurled at me – the challenge to ‘shine on’! With such seasoned bloggers and great souls around, The Nomadic Soliloquist is ready for the next adventure. Big hug and thanks to all the friends and the followers for your interest, contributions and suggestions.
