Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

My Oscar Acceptance Speech...


And I would like to thank, with all my heart and word-dripping soul Abha, who I fondly call my namesake, for this award! I am a feedback junkie, so to have my words read, validated and awarded...yes sirree, I am a happy Mamma! Thak you Abha, my dear, for thinking me worthy!

Here goes the rules for this award;
This award is for blogs whose content and/or design are brilliant as well as creative.
The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogosphere.
1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back
2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog’
4. Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize (optional).
5. And then we pass it on!

And now to pass on the torch:-
1) The Mad Momma: Yes, I know she has recently received this, but there was no way I could make this list without having her on it. She is an inspiration to me and I want everyone to know it!
2) Ratna Rajaiah: She is funny, wise and absolutely bloody brilliant! An absolute must read for those who like intelligent humour.
3) Shankari : A gentle woman whose wisdom and stories either inspire a smile or a thought for the day...and often both!
4) Monidipa Mondal : I love poetry. And this amazing young poetess takes my breath away. I just wish she would post more often!
5) Dr. Preeti Sharma : I know Abha picked her as well, but she HAS to have a spot on my list as well. Here's a little poem in her honour:
Her dental administrations
Often provide much of her inspiration!
A long lost friend, refound,
She never ceases to astound!
6) Fictional Desi : She's absolutely new to the blogging world and has but a few posts to her credit. In the spirit of which this award was intended, i.e. to promote brilliant writing, I happily place her on my list. I really think she is a new voice to look out for!
7) Still Thinking : An earnest writer who has things to say and share, and doesn't shy away from doing so. I award this to her as a huge thumbs-up and never-ending encouragement!

And there are so many mommies with blogs out there who make me laugh, nod in agreement and take my breath away. Like Noon, Mystic and A Muser. You women simply rock! You do, you do, you do and therfore you are nos. 8, 9 and 10! And, not to promote an about-to-be-released movie this Friday, but ROCK ON!

Thank you, M4! I don't think you'll ever know how much it means to me. I am honored and touched that you find me worthy of it. :)
