Merci beaucoup!

First of all, apologies on the tardiness picking up these awards. Guilty and no excuses! (Have  quite a few, but will spare one and all 😉 )

Butterfly Award – for the coolest blog. I really don’t know if I deserve this with all the cribs –  & depressing posts that have been put up on this! Graçias one and all who have awarded this to me…

NautankeyNandri for writing my name properly & I know you intended this award for A more than me 😉 Thanks on his behalf .
VimmuuuShukriya & congrats on getting that special some one in your life 😉
Vishesh –  A loves butterflies, so do I. Gràzzie
Scorpria – Welcome back  to blogging! Valarey nanhi for the award & the scoop on you know who 😉


The Trophy Cup was awarded by Vimal, Vishesh & Scorpria. Danke!


Well, in the lead up to this award ( for investing and believing in proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships)  in a foreign language bestowed upon me by Bhargavi & Scorpria – I used some words in other languages to say Saagha xalda hwa ,Baie dankie, Dhanyabad, Shukran gazilan, Dhanyawaadagalu and finally in my mother tongue Tamara krutagntha.


Got the words for thank you in other languages I don’t know from here 🙂

Now the onus on me to pass these awards on to my fellow bloggers….
The butterfly award goes to
Nova – hoping to see posts from the married you soon 🙂

Nautankey, Bhargavi, Aaarti, Praddy, Sharada , Vimal, Arvind– For all the fun times we had and will have. 😉

I think I am kinda listing all on my blog roll  here , so let me just say…to all on my blog roll ( I know some of you have already got these awards and this is just reiteration on my part 😉 ). I would actually like to give this to a few friends of mine who don’t blog, but do read this- those who have stood by me through all my downs & hoping/praying for my ups to come soon, those who I miss a lot (the alphabets I have used 😉 )….  Here is to proximity 🙂

Thank you all once again! Thank you seems to be so insufficient a word sometimes!
