Glad to share my entry for the #MusicDilSe blogging contest by http://www.funkaar.in which was named as the first prize winner recently. My sincere regards to the funkaar team for giving me the honor. It was my 100th post and it just got even more special.
Recognition from fellow bloggers and the veterans gives the much required boost to the irregularly irregular blogs like mine. My fellow bloggers have also graced my blog with the coveted “Blogger Recognition Award” and I am as ecstatic as humbled. All the credit for this triple reverence goes to:
Music is the essence of our lives and it is all around us, adding that little extra spark to an otherwise mundane routine. Music is like the air around us; we may not always see it but can definitely feel it’s presence if we care to focus. Music sometimes confronts us like a tiger roaring in African wilderness while sometimes it teases us like a koel singing on a distant tree. Music need not always be created but it can be discovered in the most unexpected places. Even silence is music to some ears. I wish my life had background music so I could understand what the hell is going on but not everyone is as lucky as Mother Nature herself. Here’s a poem from my archives celebrating Mother Nature’s lullaby…
Feeling so proud…received two wonderful award nominations from my fellow bloggers this weekend and I couldn’t have asked for more. I accept both the awards (obviously) and thank all the readers and followers for their love and support.

List 7 things about yourself and pass on the beacon.
Here are the 11 questions I was asked. You can pick any 7 while considering the second award.:-)
Which country are you from?
What, according to you, is the best thing about blogging?
Ans: For me, it is the feel good factor, the satisfaction that keeps me going. I get to express myself and connect with like-minded folks; it’s a win-win deal so why not?
Your favorite animal is?
Ans:Never thought about it but I guess fishes. I love them more in their natural habitat rather than a bowl. I have been under the sea and it was awesome.
What is your idea of friendship?
Ans: Friendship is what lasts forever. Here’s a post describing it better: Saludos Amigos
One song you’ll never stop listening to.
Ans: I think there’s a song for every emotion, every moment; so I will have to change over but ‘Hothon se choo lo tum’ is a nice one.
Do you watch YouTube? If yes, who’s your favorite You Tuber?
Ans: Not so often but I have seen ‘BB ki vines’ and he was funny.
Do you love animals?
Ans:Yes, but I don’t like pets.
Who prepares your lunch?
Ans: My wife > myself. I love to cook myself but donning the cooking apron takes more than just love. I cook whenever I can though.
What is the best thing that’s happened to you, till date, in life?
Ans: I would say I am expecting the best one soon:-).
Morning person or a night one?
Ans: NIGHT. In fact, I have seen the rising sun more often when I was awake all night.
Favorite brands – clothes and skincare.
Ans: Clothes: Well! Levi’s makes the best jeans for me.
Skincare: My wife takes care of my skin more than I do; so, whatever she chooses…
And finally the nominations for both the lovely awards:-
