Here are the 11 questions I was asked. You can pick any 7 while considering the second award.:-)

  • Which country are you from?

Ans: India

  • 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.

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?

  • 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…

The Wizard of Blogs Award

Indian Bloggers

Writers, poets and bloggers,

         Well! I have known myself for a long time now but some things still manage to amaze me. A while ago I was grappling with words and I did not realize when I became friends with them. If I put the evolution of my writing/blogging on a time scale, I would still be crawling out of the sea…and flying high is most nearly a distant dream only. Appreciation for my work at such an early stage certainly gives a boost and being recognised by fellow bloggers makes it even more special. I take this opportunity to thank you all for the love you have been showering on me and my blogs. I write because I love blogging and little milestones like these surely help but as I have said in one of my posts @https://doc2poet.wordpress.com/2015/12/27/bucketlist/ :

 के  मंज़िल  में  क्या  रखा  है, गर  सफ़र  पे  अपने  नाज़  है,

गीत  कई  गुनगुनाने  हैं  अभी, और  समय  ही  अपना  साज़  है ||

        Thank you Sneha Sasi kumar from https://lifeasapotpourri.wordpress.com for showering a bunch of awards over me.  It has been a pleasure following her blog and posts. Please visit her blog where a lot of amazing articles are waiting for you. I love whatever she comes up with and I am sure you will too…

One lovely blog award

one-lovely-blog

                 Well! That is self explanatory and isn’t it amazing.  It is indeed a lovely feeling writing this post and I am bedazzled.

              So many awards in one go, yup that’s how it goes. For the sake of ease, I have taken the liberty to merge them all into one: The Wizard of Blogs Award. However, each award has its own legacy and I respect that, so you may accept these awards individually or as one. You deserve them all.

The Wizard of Blogs Award

 7 random facts about me:

  1. I am a pediatrician by profession and currently working with the govt. of NCT of Delhi.
  2. I love sketching and pencil drawing but it is just another amateur endeavor of mine, never got to train for it. You can see some of my sketches on my blog.
  3. I absolutely crave for travelling & visiting new places and always have a plan under process with family or friends, not always easy to cram it up in my busy schedule though.
  4. Driving gives me peace, not exactly in the traffic mess of metros but long drives are serene…can’t have enough of them. And a comfy SUV is the cherry on the cake.
  5. I think there is a song of every moment, doesn’t matter if you are happy or glum, just pick your song and let it cruise…music is the most magical thing I have ever experienced.
  6. I even tried my hand at guitar but it asks for a lot of effort and time…had to let it go but I still dream of playing it live some day…Live shows and concerts gives me chills…
  7. I have been married for almost 3 years now and I absolutely love my wife. She is my inspiration, my drive, my flair and everything else.

A: It allows me to be myself, keep the real me alive amidst all the fuss about society, earning, work etc.

Q: What is your inspiration for your posts?

A: I write about romance, poetry, current events, social cause, etc. Basically anything that comes to my nerdy mind.

 Q: What do you think about rankings?

A: Rankings give your work credibility, gets you noticed, gives a sense of achievement, is a mode of peer appraisal and lot more. Basically, I feel it is a good thing and should be there.

Q: Do you have a plan for your blog?

A: Yes, I plan to get bigger and better but most of all…keep it running & make it large.

Q: What would be your dream campaign?

A: Blogging for me is mostly a dream in the making only, so it is a bit difficult to answer at the moment but I would love if I can make a meaningful change or impact with my blog.

 Q: What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?

A: Well! Just keep going, connect with people and you will sail if you love what you are doing.

Q: How did you get into blogging?

A: Seriously I don’t know…I have been writing for a while and one day I was just blogging. It just happened and I am glad it did.

 One strength and one weakness about me:

Strength: I think my strength lies in the fact that I don’t like to give up. I always strive to step closer to perfection with my persistent efforts. I don’t always succeed but I try to harvest positivity.

Weakness: I guess excess of something always ends up being a bad thing and I may have been juggling too many things lately, so not being able to strike a balance sometimes is the weakness I would like to stay away from.
