Sometimes, one finds love, appreciation, courage and warmth from those you do not even know. Here in this world, where I write you letters, I’ve found so many smiles from so many strangers, who, believe you me, don’t feel like strangers – through their writings, their likes, their comments, their words of encouragement, I feel like they’ve known me and you for a long, long time – but we’ve discovered them only now.
One such person is fellow blogger Gabriel360live. Other than his heartwarming comments on the letters, he also surprised me by nominating me for two awards – a Starlight Blogger Award and a Liebster Award! Thank You Gabriel for making me feel special.
So, I’m going to opt for one of the nominations: the Starlight Blogger Award.
The rules for this award:
–Show off your award by posting the picture of it.
–Thank the person who gave you the nomination.
–Answer the 3 questions given to you.
–Pass on the award to at least six of your fellow bloggers and let them know of it.
–Give your nominees 3 questions to answer.
Here I go with my answers to the three questions:
1) What’s your favorite color combination?
White and Gold. Every colour has its own energy, that it envelopes you with, that it draws you with. White is pure, it’s subtle, it’s clean. Gold shines and exudes an angelic energy. When I think gold, I think beauty, I think angel wings, I think splendour, I think strength, I think heaven.
So when you fuse the two – it’s almost like a divine combination for me. It’s a circle of protection from the dark, it’s an upliftment of spirits, it’s the merging into the light – of gold and white.
When my Mowgli lived with us physically, I would surround him with the energy of gold and white, to protect him, to see him through every step of his life. And, I know he does the same for me now.
2) Would you ever change your name and, if you did, what would it be?
No, never. I was meant to be called Nupur Chaudhuri. It’s my identity, it’s who I am. It denotes everything that makes up ‘me’. It’s a symbol of my personality, of who I was, who I am, who I will become. I didn’t change my (last) name even after my marriage, and I have to thank my husband for standing by my decision.
3) Do you prefer paper books or eBooks and why?
Paper Books. I have given ebooks a try, I’ve read three ebooks but they fail to bring out that excitement, the flutter of my heart as I read creative words and lines on paper, that addiction to the pages, that impatience to turn the page and get more involved with the story…
And, as clichéd as it sounds, it’s the beautiful smell of the pages that scores the ultimate point over ebooks.
Well, that’s me! Now it’s the turn for my nominees for the Starlight Blogger Award. For those reading this, check the nominees out – you’ll love their blogs as much as I do!
