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.

NEIGHBOUR! Things have changed so much these days; it is difficult to know who our neighbours are. To whom should we call our neighbours? To most people on this earth in these times, life has been on the run. From the work place to back home is a tiring job and one gets retired by the day’s end to shoot back into the favourite bed. Where is the time for people around? We live in Apartments, Flats, Bungalows, Chawls, Farm Houses, Hutments, Etc; the more sophisticated ones in urban areas live in Rove-Houses, Villas and Bungalows. We do not know most of the times or we do not attempt to know who our neighbour is.Villas_in_Bangalore_Silvanakalkan-luxury-villa-for-sale-252502889047 In India and most countries, it is common to find people living in villages and townships where houses are attached one to the other with only a distinction of a wall. ChawlJhopadapatti 1 Those human beings living beside our dwelling place, whom we consider as just human beings only; I think if they were of a different species we would attempt to drive them away. download (3) In the dwellings that we live, most times we are bound to meet and interact with those people and we tend to derive problems, troubles, fights, ill behaviour, abuse of language and filthy talks rather than having friendly relationship, good ties, inviting each other on special occasions, sharing happiness and sorrows, helping each other at times of crisis and so on and so forth….. At times it may come to police intervention or filing of law suits against each other which would prolong for years and years. Ultimately to decide upon and say –“what horrible and toxic neighbour I have or am living amongst”. Almost two thousand years back, Jesus preached and he thus spake – “Love Thy Neighbour”, what he actually meant and to whom he was referring to as neighbour is now to be pondered. Did people live in the same manner as of now and behaved in the same fashion that made him speak so. Volumes might have been written on this. I am not writing anything new, I think I am only giving it a new twist. Living in the dwellings in these modern times like as I have said above. We instead made arrangements to live, separately from our neighbours. This made us live away from those people who live beside us, whom the world calls ‘neighbours’. We call it our civilised society and a developed world. Resulting in, to make a generalised statement as to –‘who is our neighbour and what love is’. That’s why Jesus’ message is as fresh, as important, as contemplating and as thought-provoking. As for now who all are doing the “Blogging 101 June 2015”, to them, Word-Press team has extended the preaching of Jesus. It is as to our approach towards our neighbours, they mean and I mean our fellow Bloggers of this world. We have lessons like this  ………..which I would not want to disclose as it is a private class only for those bloggers who are registered, but my classmates do know about them. So we ought to know and are to learn and act as to what Jesus said-“Love Thy Neighbour”. That means to say we have to be always in good connection with each other, have cordial relationship through your likes, comments and follow, spreading your horizon, meeting different people from all over the world from all walks of life, young and old. Spread LOVE throughout the ‘Blogging World’, who is your neighbour now. LONG LIVE WORDPRESS!!! Blogging 101 Emblem
