Visceral Observations started winning awards with Ashish awarding my interview with consumer court case winner Lt. Col. Rajesh Yadav as best post.
Nita awarded me Brilliant blog award for my “brilliantly thoughtful posts” as she says. I am honored, specifically because, to me, she is epitome of professional and most regular blogger I have ever known. She does it without any commercial interests. Yet, day after day she churns out informative and well-researched posts about India.
Vaibhav bestowed me with another Brilliant Weblog award and so did Roop. Roop awarded me Brilliant Blog award in her painstakingly long post. You can find me at number 30 in her long list. Thank you, Roop!
Once I praised Roop’s idea of dedicating pictures in her blog (she clicks them herself) to others (blogger friends usually), she dedicated two of her next pictures to me. And you (Roop) thought I didn’t notice it? After Reema, Roop is another generous blogger I have come across. Generous to recognise you, your writings.
Vimal awarded me with the Addicting Blog award.
Reema had awarded me the Best Blogger award. And I gave her generous blogger award and a high-five. But she deserves more.
Xylene mentioned me in his award post.
Amit mentioned me as an inspiration for blogging in his post for his blogging journey. Now I feel honored again if I could inspire someone to blog.
Smita awarded me with what she called a PROXIMITY award:
This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Muse too awarded me with this award, saying:
In our blogs, “nearness” is a relative term. Some of the people I feel “near” to are actually quite far away physically. A blogger I know who embodies these qualities is half a word away from me. I award this to Poonam, who deserved the award even before she invested so much time, energy, care, and love into designing and implementing an amazing blog awards program!
And so did amreekandesi.
Kiran, a Malaysian blogger, handed me this Friendship Embracelet.
Nimmy has awarded me with these again:
Reema awarded me with Garland Award with these words:
“Talking about positive vibes, I strongly believe in them. A blog’s theme, name and post titles must look attractive and interesting to me before I subscribe to it. I pass on this award to … Poonam… for holding my attention since so long!”
The newsletter The Pakistani Spectator was doing rounds of Indian blogosphere for interviews. Here’s link to my interview that was published on their site.
P.S: It has been posted as is from my Word document without linking to articles and correcting smileys. Please forgive them.
Bows to all of you! Thank you, it is very humbling thing to be recognised for this blog.
