The Liebster Nomination: The chain blog award

This came as a surprise :) I have been nominated for the sweet Liebster Award by my friend cum fellow blogger Dreamz and Clouds. Thanks a bunch girl!

On receiving this nomination, I set out to find out what this award is really all about. Liebster Award is an award for upcoming bloggers with less than 200 followers and for who someone believes deserve some recognition for their blogging. This is a good way to encourage people to visit new/interesting blogs. Some trivia about this award are:
  • The word 'Liebster' is german and means dearest, sweetheart, beloved and boyfriend (really!).
  • It is a chain award, that is, it needs to be passed on.
  • One can either accept this award and pay it forward, or refuse it and interrupt the chain.
  • There have been variations to the rules over time.
  • This award is by the bloggers, of the bloggers and for the bloggers!

The rules of the award are -
  1. Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them

  1. Thanks for the nomination Natasha. but I would rather not like to participate. But I am answering your ten questions below:

    (1)What is the last movie you watched?

    The last movie I watched was an old Hindi comedy movie titled "Rang Birangi". It is an 1983 film, with Amol Palekar, Parveen Babi, Farooq Sheikh, Deepti Naval, Utpal Dutt and Deven Verma in the lead roles. I loved the movie for its simple humour and the comic mix-ups created by the characters.

    (2) What is the one thing you would like to do before you die?

    I would like to play cricket once with my old childhood buddies in the field in front of the house I resided during my childhood. I grew up playing cricket in that field and till date I miss that field and the cricketing moments spent there..

    Spring, of course. It makes you feel so wonderful and alive.
