It is raining awards – The Versatile Blogger Award and Liebster Award

A couple of months ago, Ritu who blogs at But I smile anyway nominated me for 2 awards  – The Versatile Blogger Award and Liebster Award and it feels good. RItu has recently achieved a blogging milestone of 1000th post. So, friends please congratulate her.

For a change, I decided to be creative this time and thought of doing one post for both the awards.

The Versatile Blogger Award – 


Rules – 

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award and include a link to their blog.
  2. Tell the person who nominated you, seven facts about you
  3. Next, select blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4. Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Seven facts about me –

It seems I have blogged a lot about myself as a person and it is going to be challenging to come with 7 new facts which I have not given a mention earlier.

  1. I live in Bangalore, a place which has lovely weather throughout the year.
  2. I cannot cook or work in the kitchen without playing songs in the background and humming along. This is the only way I can enjoy cooking.
  3. If I like a song I will play it back to back several times until the time it is pointed out to me by external forces and my reply is “I believe in internalizing the song”.
  4. I am a boring person if you meet me in person. You can very well deduce that I express all my sense of humour (if you trust me with it) through the way of blogging alone.
  5. I am very good at connecting with kids.
  6. I do not like watching television.
  7. I have discovered gratitude in my life recently which has set the Karma rolling for me in the way of good wishes coming back to me from several sources.

With this I am closing this thread here. Yes, no nominations.

Liebster Award – 



  1. Once nominated, you answer 11 questions about yourself or your blog, then give 11 random facts about yourself.
  2. The next step is to nominate 11 more qualifying bloggers for the award and create 11 questions for them to answer.
  3. Then you must visit each blog you’ve nominated and inform him/her about the award.

My answers –

  • Why do you blog?

A – To express myself through written words.

  • Favorite music?

A- Hindi movies’ songs, mainly from 50’s and 60’s.

A- I would bore the regular readers of my blog to death if I mention that name again.

  • Coke or Pepsi?

A- I dislike both of them. Adrak wali chai (ginger tea) is for me.

  • What is your favorite historical time period?

A- History evades my mind. For me, the present time is the best time.

  • Read on a Kindle or paperback book?

  1. Hai Anamika,

    Congrats, dear …
    Still I can find some more like between us….

    I too don’t watch TV.
    I also hate coke or pepsi but prefer ginger green tea.
    That answer about paperback book was so funny. I enjoyed it.
    I too love to read only paperback books. I adore its smell and texture.
