Appreciation Award



Quote by: Shiva Malekopmath

Pam! of Joyindestructible  has nominated me for this Award. This Award it seems is to be given to those from a Blogger to another Blogger who has built a rapport with each other and have virtually had lot of conversations, exchange of thoughts and ideas. As a result the whole relationship has been built on a strong footing.


I feel over a period of time the bloggers have established an Appreciation for each other. So, one would want to give something in return, to promote their relationship to be intact and long standing. In the regular course of blogging they would be qualitatively chatting but when someone exchanges with something as a reward it carries meaning to the relationship as a whole.


Meanwhile let me talk something about Pam! Before I go ahead I thank her for this Award. In the past few months or so when I first came across her Blog I commented on her posts and she in reply asked me to elaborate, and in return I asked her to elaborate the subjects. It went on for some time and it still does. She is a very spiritual person and loves Jesus more than her life. In a way her life has been Jesus. She lives in the farthest west of US in a farm of her own. She has children and grand children too. She living so far from me; clockwise she is very far, anticlockwise she is very near, as India, my country, where I live is geographically near to her place. But we are so near to each other, as she dwells near my heart and I to hers. We have had spiritual communion and agree to understand each other’s scriptural dictums. So is this consanguinity.


There are so many bloggers whom I really appreciate and have developed a good rapport to whom I have nominated awards and they in return have nominated me.


Here are a few whom I appreciate and nominate for this Award and they would participate in return to appreciate their Blogger friends who have come across them.



















  1. Thank the person who nominated you and post a link back to their Blog.
  2. Use the “Blogger Appreciation Award” image.
  3. Write a positive paragraph about yourself.
  4. Nominate other bloggers whom you appreciate.


Participating in the Award Posts is left to individual choice and taste.I for feel, participating in them gives me lot of pleasure and gives me an opportunity to recognise and develop relationship with Blogger friends.


Gudi Padwa is the first day of Chaitra month that marks the beginning of the New Year according to lunisolar Hindu Calendar.  It has many names such as Samvatsar Padvo, Yugadi, Ugadi, Cheti Chand or and Navreh. It is also celebrated in the North East state of Manipur and is known as Sajibu Nongma Panba Cheiraoba.

I take this opportunity to wish all my Blogger friends all over the world  a very Happy New Year. My Appreciation again to all of you for having made my Blog grow to what it is now and also wish that your support shall always be there.

Let the New Year bring you all Laurels and Your wishes and Dreams come true.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Dragon's Loyalty Award

Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Erika Kind!
A beautiful woman from the Liechtenstein (between Austria and Switzerland) a daughter, a wife, a sister, a mother, a novelist, a writer, a poet, a beautician who undertakes the following, massages and has products with essential oils, spiritual healing, Matrix transformation and an avid Blogger and on top of that my great friend in the Virtual World.
Erika is the name of a flower, it has other meanings also, one is Ever Queen and Ever Powerful, you may refer for more details if you want. She was on a holiday when she gave me this Award and was blogging from wherever she went, kudos to her. Kind is her surname but I feel she is very KIND at heart also.
To tell you more about her; she has written four books –‘I am Free!!!’ Is one among them.  It is already on the stalls and is been a best seller already. No sooner I see it in the stalls anywhere in India I shall buy it. It seems to be a touch on the spiritual side of all of us. You may buy it and read it and pass comments to her. The link to her blog:
She has given a stunning interview to my friend Mr. Ngobesing Romanus at Success Inspirer you can refer it at this link.
In an interview such questions should be asked to dig the in-depth and profound answers to those questions are in this particular interview.  You go read the interview you shall come to know.
She has presented me this Dragon’s Loyalty Award months back and I had promised her I would respond to her by this post. I was overwhelmed when I received this message of hers but could not respond immediately, as I have my own reasons for that. I don’t fuss on posting Award posts unlike some bloggers have put sign boards that their blogs are Award Free. Some do not accept at all, some accept but do not write Award Posts, some have an averse on those, some do not even respond or say thanks, OMG! But I personally feel this Award thing in the blogosphere is a fine act and should be considered as a ritual. One gives, one takes and then again one gives, what a wonderful act. After all it is in recognition.
This Award was initiated by …. … I wanted to write about them and explored about it but could not get the source. This is given to those who are loyal to you, that means people who visit your Blog regularly and read, like and pass comments on your Blog and who have become good friends in this Virtual World. I do not know why the Dragon picture or name is given to this; I explored about it but could not get any answer. May be centuries back the dragons’ used to be very loyal.
I thank Erika once again for awarding me this.

The Award requires to tell five random fact about me

I Love Swimming, when ever I see water in which I could swim, I shall never try to loose the chance.

I wanted to be an Actor, should I say a Film-Star. I did act in many Dramas in the Lead role always.

It is the Quality that matters to me rather than the Quantity.

Who is Who that does not matter to me, its I that Matters.

Life is a Journey and I believe in it.

Award Rules

  • Accept the award with thanks.
  • Give your readers 5 facts about you.
  • Nominate other bloggers and let them know.

I nominate the Following Bloggers who have been very, very loyal to me and have given all the encouragement, they have been visiting my Blog often and have commented on most of my Posts.

Thanks to them, go read them and put them in your basket.
