Starlight blogger Award

Starlight Blogger Award 05/30/2015

Hearing that I’ve been nominated for starlight blogger award is a beautiful surprise. Lately, I’ve not been accepting some awards, thinking that they’re for new bloggers but this one comes from a very diligent blogger Prakash Hegade and the fact that he is among those readers of my blog who have been here with me from the beginning of my writing journey made me feel that I need to accept this kind gesture of him.

Do check his book Run – The Secret Destination. Once, you’ll finish reading his book, you’ll find yourself looking at life with a whole new perspective.

Here are my answers to his three  questions

Share the link of your first blog post you made on your blog?

Hmm.. it’s tough, actually before writing here on WordPress, I started with some writing forums. I posted some of my posts there then I shared them here. Once, joining here on WordPress, I was lucky that I discovered a blog named the writers’ hub with weekly hub challenges which were intended to motivate and help bloggers in writing.

I wrote these six words stories for the hub challenge.

Thrice defeated; still charged, I’m optimistic.

Hospital sounds haunt me, she’s gone.

 Associate a meaning and describe black and white?

I don’t believe that things in life needed to be black and white. There are lots of colors between them, why not enjoy little bit ambiguity?  🙂

If you were to invent something, what would be it?

A medicine, people would take in the morning which would force them to keep a smile on their face throughout the day but ignore it what I’ve written for I believe it is very much in our own control 🙂

That reminds me of a Mathematics teacher in our ninth grade, who was stern in her appearance and responded to our queries quite rudely. Gradually, students stopped asking her questions, she noticed that change and as she was young, we took liberty and discussed our issue with her. Surprisingly, she readily accepted that problem in her attitude and from the next day, I saw a smile on her face.

She’s still teaching in same school and last week when I met her after some more than ten years, she welcomed me with a great big smile on her face 🙂

Keeping the beautiful gesture showed by Prakash Hegade in mind, I’m also including three of my nominees for this award here.

Deb author of the blog ONCE UPON A HOT FLASH believes in showing gratitude for every blessing in her life.

A positive attitude with an abundance of gratitude and a laugh at menopause is her tagline. She has taught me to remain hopeful in life.

Ancient Skies believes in compassion and love for nature.He’s among those readers who have been here from the day one of my writing journey. He writes that he’s always learning and growing, I like his humble attitude.

I’m so glad to discover Nashrah author of the blog PAINTED IN WORDS. I like her photography and reading her posts is always a refreshing experience for me.

Here are three simple rules

–Thank the giver and link their blog to your post

–Answer the three questions

–Nominate others

My questions for my nominees

1. Any quote from movie or book which has remained a source of inspiration for you?

2. The post on your blog for which you feel that you’re emotionally attached to it?

Allergic to E Challenge

I was nominated for the Allergic to ‘E’ Challenge by my friend Fatmawaty. It’s a beautiful blog from Indonesia. Please do visit her blog. The life without “E” is difficult to imagine. So, let’s have a try 🙂

First, here are the rules for this challenge:

1) Write a whole paragraph ( a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy for ya?)
2) By reading this you are already signed up.
3) Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure.
4) If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.
5) If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.

Adding drawings was a fun. Photos show warmth of colors. It’s amazing. Pooh and owl look calm. Right now, I’m thinking of a classic book by a profound author which I’m trying to finish. The Sunday is approaching and visitors will make it a fun day. Sun is shining and lucid sky is smiling. It’s vacations and Ramdan is approaching. It’s 9:23 am and now I’m going to wind up my post. It was tough. Unknowingly, I was about to touch upon the “no go land” in this post 🙂

My nominees

1. Prakash Hegade

2. Ameena k.g

3. Arfa



These drawings are made by my sister and we made these greeting cards for our family.

Thanks to “Eeyore” for patience. Can’t mention his presence in the post and I’m reading “Pride and Prejudice”.

Finally, lots of “E’s” here 🙂
