Embracing It - My First Blogger Award

It is weekend and I am in wait for a spark , an idea to strike my head, stroke my heart , flow on my finger tips and evolve out . I never knew that it is as arduous as giving birth to a baby that I am undergoing all the labor pain to bring my baby out. To all those who ask, if there is any good news, my baby will be out soon within few months....a baby whose blood vessels and veins are fibered with my ink and words.. With so much of pain, with so much of pleasure, with so much of anxiety, with so much of expectations, this mother is  waiting for its fullest growth and to deliver.Yes... My Doctoral Thesis is going to be my First baby. It will happen, when it has to happen. Time will make it and I am all positive...

Sitting with my Research Thesis , while sipping a coffee accompanied by the cold weather, all that I can do is to smile a while because it feels great to know that someone has come to my blog and taken a look around. You know that feeling…I started my blog on October  2011 and I never knew, I could keep it running to this day. Getting readers, who experience and appreciate me for what I write, is truly a blessing. When they accept my writing, they are accepting me as a person, they are considering me as what I am and welcoming me as the girl, next door to their life. When I hear it from  you  that had experienced it and you could relate it to your life, I feel  I am somewhere at Home. It is already rewarding for me to get this much page views, comment and likes of my fellow Facebook readers. 

  And now,  for the first time when I have been nominated for Leibster Blog Award by Anupam Patra of Reflections.   As a blogger, this is one of the best gifts,, one could receive.  It is all the more precious to receive it from a talented writer like him. His, is one of those blogs, that inspires me a lot and it is a kind of exploration for me. I met him from Indiblogger and it is from there, I am realizing the power of networking. I remember it reading somewhere that, in a journey to become a great writer , relationships are what you all need. Making friends, finding readers and earning patrons is nothing lesser than a challenge. This is very important in growing the platform and getting the words, heard. 

Non-writers think we write because we’re sad. Because we have issues.  But we write to save ten-second lifetimes which would otherwise have gone unremembered. We write to capture the beauty of a moment or a sound or a face...I am so happy for my Leibster Award.. The word Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isnt it pretty interesting? I love it  totally.
