Versatile Blogger Award . Do I Deserve It ?

The"Versatile Blogger Award" was first passed onto me by Gayathri(  back in April. The generosity was graciously reiterated by the very kind  Jayashree (,   Saher  ( ), Jasmeet Kukreja ( ) and Vijayabhaskar Siddareddi ).

Rehya Bond who blogs at Ik Life. Ik Chance. has since my nascent days of blogging, kept me encouraged by her feedback. Today she has become the latest conferrer of the Versatile Blogger Award on me. She is an amazing blogger and she herself has been awarded this award simultaneously by three persons. I congratulate Rehya for having bagged the award and I heartily thank her for passing it onto me.

Since the second time onward, I've found it quite embarrassing to dedicate full posts with regard to the award. Frankly speaking, it's like blowing my own trumpet. But I've always gone ahead and written a post about the tag anyway, since I believe that every blogger who conferred me this award is in no way less important to me than his / her predecessor. And that I have no reason to discriminate by writing with regard to being tagged by one blogger and not doing so when I'm tagged again by another. This may sound classically naive, but that's the truth.

The back to back conferment of the award has not by an iota diminished its charm and even today I experience the exact excitement that I'd felt when I was given this award for the first time. A writer is what his readers say he is. So I'm delighted by Rehya's adulation. Many of my readers may agree with the decision of Rehya and all others who have awarded me 'The Versatile Blogger Award' and yet there may be many more who may not do so. Since I can't help asking myself whether I deserve this award, I'll leave it to the judgment of the readers who dedicate their valuable time to read my blog regularly. My admirers make the writer that I am as much as my detractors.

  1. Anupam, your title of the post made me wonder, "Is he joking?"

    You deserve this award and much more!

    And I think you should have listed the people you have tagged... it works as promotion for their blogs also. :)
