My first award


When I got a comment from Indu ji in one of my blogs that a surprise was awaiting me at JEETE RAHO  I rushed to the page full of excitement and was surprised to see my name included in her list of bloggers for the LIEBSTER  award  ---it dId send a flutter down my spine because I never thought my name would be included in any such list and that too by someone of the caliber of Indu Chhibber.

Thankyou so much Indu ji(indu chhibber) -----I am sorry I am very late in posting my blog  but it happened because it is one thing writing a blog and quite another responding to something as serious and important as this ---it requires so much concentration and seriousness which I could not devote because November- and December  share 5 birthdays parties 4 anniversary parties and then add to the list Diwali and New Year celebrations and  again 9th January ( b'day party of yours truly)---so all this prevented me from devoting my best in earnest to answering the questions; ,forming questions and then listing 11 names --which was more difficult for me due to my  being new to the site .I hope you will understand and forgive my laxity.

and now to as you have said ---earning the title
