It was a pleasant surprise on Sunday morning when I opened my mailbox. There was a mail redirected from the comment box of my blog. Namaki has presented me with an award !

I quote: ‘Hello Raji ... Let me offer you the Arte y Pico award for your blog ... because I like your stories about Indian culture and traditions etc.” I understand that the award is given to bloggers who are artistic in any way.

My most sincere thanks, Namaki. I am happy that my writings tell you a little about our traditions, even though I have not made any conscious effort to specifically talk about them.

Now it is my pleasure to offer five people the award.

Adi for his beautiful bilingual poems.
Sunita for having created a natural garden, which I see through her photographs and complementary writings.
Gardenia, who has a way with words, and brings alive her part of the country
Indrani for her wonderful photographs.
Flowergirl for writing so interestingly about flora and fauna.

Bonjour !
C'est Raji !
Bravo à Toi...

Congrats, Raji. Namaki is perfectly right, you know. You really do bring alive so many aspects of Indian culture that is either forgotten or taken for granted.
And, thank you for awarding it to me in turn. I'm not going to ask you, "are you sure?", just in case you say "hmm... on second thoughts..."! ; )

You deserve the award, Raji. Congrats!!

And I humbly accept the award you give me. Thank you!

Hearty congrats to all the recipients of this prestigious award.


Thanks, everyone. But like my son says, to choose only five is not fair. I must admit I had a difficult time choosing, for I love all the blogs I visit.
