The Canary's Speech

For someone who prefers sandals over heels this came as a total surprise.'Style and me huh?Poo you gotta see me!' is what I thought when I saw this...
My blogger friend Poonam of Beyond Horizon has honored me with this award.
I am pretty poor at giving award speeches.But today I am going to try.All I have to say to you is Poo that you are one of the most likable people that I have come across till date.I am not saying this because you thought of giving me this.I mean it and words are all I have to prove.You deserve my gratitude for you have been there with me quite literally and 'very bloggingly'.To me the most satisfying part of writing a post is reading comments from people like you.You have helped me blog better and I thank you for that.We may not meet over cups of coffee,we may not share jokes and we may not lend our shoulders to cry but deep down in my heart I know there is someone just like me out there who reads me between my lines,who understands things I do not want to tell and who makes me smile with her every comment here on my blog.You made my day today Poo,a zillion bear hugs to you.Keep blogging,for your words have the power and panache,spread  them beyond every horizon!

In between all the thoughts and feelings that we give and take in this virtual yet beautiful world of bloggers,I give this award to these sparrows who have touched me with their words,they deserve this and more.Pass this and all happiness on,blogging is a pleasure because of people you.Thank you everyone.In random order:

Sameera-Life In A Jiffy-For the many bubbles she sends;-)

Bikram Mann-Me And My Random Thoughts-For being an ardent appreciator of my every post.

Sarah Malik-Embodying Emotions-For the serenity with which she carries us through the disillusions and delusions of everyday life.

Lakshmi-Confessions...of a lost female...-For holding my hand when I baby stepped with this blog.

Muddassir Shah-The Rosette Stone-For speaking his heart with the most simple words always.

Pratibha Singh-Pratibha The Talent-For the awesomeness of the talent that she owns.

And as a continuation of this speech I am supposed to blow my trumpet,a seven times exactly!Now that is like letting the monkey inside me on my favorite tree.So here is something about me that will make your brows and ears stand up:

  • Read a book and then talk to me.
  • I do not forgive easily,forgetting is a difficult and different story altogether.
  • If you have a sweet tooth for sweetcorn,you are my friend for life.
  • I can be ruthless,uncaring and barbaric if you intend to harm anyone who makes me smile.
  • The canary does turn into a penguin at times.
  • I hate the fact that my brother's hair is curlier than mine.
  • I became a blogger by chance,I will remain as one by choice.

"Your blog is your unedited version of yourself.Your blog is what you say when there is nobody standing over your shoulder telling you what to do.It demonstrates how you think outside the rules.It is one of the very few places where you have complete editorial control.Don’t take that for granted"-Lorelle.

I more than agree with this quote,cheers to everyone who work on their blog and keep their flow of freedom alive.

A good day to you all!:-)

Hey "R", am gonna call you that from now on, as I have seen you end your every post by this signatory! :)

Thanks from deep core of my endocardium ;) for those most loveliest words from you, It means a lot to me! This is the first thing I read this morning, even when my mom always shouts "First thing you do every morning is explore your mobile net (Bit obsessed with it ;) and am so happy not to break that obsession today :)

Hahaha...You know what...I am crazy for footwear's, but not heels, "Simplicity is what Style is!" and probably we docs stick on this one 'Not to were heels as it can cause multiple problems'

Yes, am always with you 'very bloggingly', your write ups are most innovative, have something new to learn every time, that's why I love to fly and visit your nest :)

Keep expressing!
