An Award – Unexpected one!


Receiving  awards is fun, no matter how senior you are , and pretend that “I have seen all and done all”. An added joy is to receive it from young bloggers , like Somesh.

Another icing on the cake is, being called “Sunshine “. Me! No one in the family is amused. They say” oh, what does Somesh know”.

I am cheerful and all thanks to Somesh.Take a bow, young man!

All right . Now comes the rules, and …mmmm… a different one ..

I have to

    • Answer some questions about myself
    • Nominate some of my favorite bloggers
    • Let them know that they have been nominated
    • Share the love and link the person who nominated me
    • The questions are
      1. Love or Money?
        After watching the Documentary I am by  Tom Shadyac I reaffirm my faith in love. We need loads and loads of it in our hearts and minds, to connect and cherish.
      2. High salary or job satisfaction? 
        At 62,  Job satisfaction, is what keeps me alive.
      3. Favorite Book?
        I am an avid book reader, now it is Barbara Kingsolver’s books. Poisonwood Bible, The Lacuna.. How best an author can play with words and tug your heart!
      4. Television character that you simply adore?
        I do not watch TV. House was the last one I loved.
      5. Favourite Music
        Sanskrit slokas, by MS, Bombay Sisters..
      6. Favourite type of movie
        Any movie with family, drama, epic, mystery…
       The bloggers who come to my mind when I think of Sunshine are:
      1. Jeevan : He is the one who fits to the title. A cheerful young man, finding sunshine in daily life.
      2. Debajyoti : Very popular Blogger, and a versatile,entertainer too. I am sure , these award are a habit. Here is one more.
      3. Gwyn of “A Celtic Cow girl – ” A writer by heart, an explorer by nature, and a lover of Creation by design.” ‘
      4. George –  A happily married retiree living on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee., who posts wonderful, cheerful photographs, is in love with life.
      5. Abhinav A person who loves nature and loves to photograph it.
      6. Thanks Somesh, I love it:-)
