The Versatile Blogger Award - Hip Hip Hurrah!

Day before yesterday, as I sat reading and promoting blogs on Indiblogger I wondered how nice it would be if someone would give me something like the Versatile Blogger award and Lo!
Nagini of passed it on to me.


Her posts are very unique and interesting and she truly deserves it.

I am honored and thank her with all my heart.

I love putting my thoughts, views, imagination to words and blogging has been a great medium. I would like to express my gratitude to every one of you who stopped by to take a peek. I get absolutely thrilled every time there is a comment in my blog or a vote for my post.

Now few things to be done!

1) Create a new post
2) Thank the lovely person who nominated you for the award
3) Pass it on to your fellow bloggers
4) State 7 random facts about you
5) Claim and post the award pic

Now that the first two are done,

I am really breaking my head about whom to mention here...

Amit Agarwal ,  Rajagopalan Ratnaraj and D Nambiar first came to my mind but they are there on Nagini's list as well. Also C.Suresh seems to have been nominated just yesterday or so.

So here goes my list

  1. Debajyoti Ghosh
  2. Anupam Patra
  3. LeoPaw
  4. Nanbanita Dhar
  5. Ranjith
  6. Bhavana
  7. Sangeetha Reghu Nair
  8. Ravi Akula
  9. Sujatha Sathya
  10. Akshay Kumar
 7 Random Facts About me:

Now thats not is it?...May be...Well,

  •  Tamil is my mother tongue but I can read, write and speak Malayalam and Hindi.

  • Cooking is one of my favorite activities and I am a foodie too- A vegetarian but I love trying out different types of food - As my father said I get fascinated by names and that sometimes has really disastrous consequences ;)

  • Atleast in looks I was intelligent before i.e. I used to wear spectacles as the moon always seemed full to me when I looked up...Courtesy: Short Sight or Myopia....And along with other experiments on my self I decided to undergo Lasik surgery and now I dont wear glasses anymore

  • I try walking whenever possible and I enjoy long walks. I have learnt some basic Yoga and I do not practise regularly but am trying to.

  • I love to read mystery and suspense novels - One of the stupid few who can stay up all night on the eve of the Engineering Graphics Practical Exam unable to put down Sydney Sheldon's Rage Of Angels!

  • My zodiac sign is Cancer and I seem to possess all of the so-called Cancerian traits. An astrologer once told me that I would not leave the country till I was 40 or so...But I have been staying outside the country for quite some time now in 3 countries US,Malaysia and now Singapore and there is a long way to go for 40. Bad Bad Astrologer!

  • I wear salwars, jeans etc as per my mood and the occasion but I love wearing sarees and I love wearing nine-yard sarees during the functions at home though I am yet to figure out how to tie the nine-yard one correctly!!

And now for the 'Claim and post the award pic' part - Here I go!

    Nice to know things about you. I too fall under the category of people who gets carried away by names.I've had some really precious and sometimes really weird moments because of that.
    What is the difference between 9 yard and regular sarees?

    1. Hi Leo

      A regular saree is around 6 yards in length...9 yard sarees are longer and are used to tie in the traditional manner .
