The Versatile Blogger Award

When you receive 1 out of 15 nominations, you feel good.
But when you receive 1 out of 2 nominations, you feel great. 😀

Thank you Miracle Girl for nominating me. I feel really nice 🙂
Visit her blog for interesting posts and miracle challenges.

Now,

7 Random Facts about me!

  1. I’m an Automotive Software Engineer (we program cars) 😀
  2. I hail from a pretty orthodox family of Darjeeling. But, since I was three, we have been living in Sikkim, a state in the Northeastern part of India.
  3. I love literature – especially because my paternal family is much into it. My paternal grandfather had translated the famous Bengali romance novel Devdas into Nepali. He also wrote a lot of other articles in Nepali. My dad, too, is a Nepali linguist – the first one to publish a book on Nepali Linguistics in India. So, I’ve probably inherited the traits.
  4. I may seem like an introvert, but I’m actually just the opposite. I take a “little” time to get used to talking to the other person.
  5. I write in Quora on almost all topics 😀
  6. I had tried giving up on Chicken for almost 10 months until I finally realized that I was just acting. I couldn’t.
  7. I love to stay fit – always!

Now, I nominate Novelacious and Aishwarya to take this award! Write seven random facts about yourself and nominate two other bloggers.

Cheers! 😀

The Sunshine Blogger Award

So, let me begin my Q & A session set by Novelacious.

1. The most adventurous trip you have ever been to and with whom?

2. Any dream vacation place?

A: Anywhere where there is a balance of nature and technology and I get to go with my best friends. Probably some island in Maldives. 😉

3. What’s your dream date (your would be lover as well as where are you gonna take him/her) gonna be like?

A: My dream date? Umm, I haven’t thought about it much. But, I’d ask the girl where she’d love to go and we can plan a dream date together. Haha.

A: Reading books, no doubt!

5. List 5 of your favorite movies of all the time.

Blogger Recognition Award!!

Well! This one comes as a surprise to me – thanks for the nomination Novelacious. I’m glad as well as surprised, therefore I don’t know what to write. I even don’t have so much of a blogging experience to nominate fifteen other blogs who, in my opinion, really deserve this award. But here I go!

Firstly, the Rules:

  • Thank the one who nominated you and embed a link to their blog.
  • Share how you started your blog.
  • Give a little bit of advice that new bloggers can take away.
  • Select fifteen other blogs who you think really deserve the award.
  • Visit the blogs you nominated and let them know.

Story of my blog:

I have always been a curious person. This curiosity led me create almost ten blogs by the time I left high school. But I never clung on to them – my blogs were nothing more than a few static pages of read-worthy (some worthless too) information. Even my WP blog is now more than 6 years old. But, I recently started to actually BLOG. A few months ago, I completed writing down my first novel. After six to seven drafts, I sent it to publishers and ended up with this. But I didn’t want to lose hope in my writing (what I consider good :D). So, instead, I came back to WP, albeit to really blog this time. So, started my journey which is going fine till now. I hope to continue growing with this lovely community of WPressers.

Advice to new bloggers:

As far as I know, I am a new blogger myself. If I advise others, it wouldn’t seem nice. But, yes, I have one thing to say – Knowledge is Power. Keep gaining knowledge and be more powerful. Blog and Reblog; Read and Write; Love and Be Loved!

(Please don’t laugh at my advice :D)
