A shout goes out to A mouthful of sky for nominating me for the Liebster Award. She is another kind spirit in the world of blogs and we are connected because of WordPress and love of books.. and probably, a lot of things too.

For all you people wondering what Liebster means, here’s what it is.


Liebster Award –

” It’s a blogger-to-blogger award that tells a fellow newbie blogger that they are making the world a more interesting /intellectual /funny /better place. For a lot of us, it comes just when we’re facing that first blogger’s block or wondering if it’s all worth it. For the rest, it’s a shower of accolades. Either way, it’s a great thing. There are no certificates or trophies, but hey, appreciation from a fellow blogger is always valued. It is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.”
Liebster Award
 To be allowed to state that we won this award, we do need to put in some effort. It is kind of a blog chainletter award but obviously the primary motive is to recognize bloggers around the world and network. The rules are pretty darn simple –
  1. List 11 random facts about myself
  2. Answer 11 questions that Neelima has set
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers for the award
  4. Go back to their pages and tell these bloggers about the award


So here are 11 random facts about myself –

  1. Love blue skies sans the sun.
  2. Rains can be pretty depressing but somehow, I love London (a mystery for me as well).
  3. Love writing fiction even if I fail sometimes.
  4. Think toilet rolls are the best ever thing that were invented.
  5. Passionate about watching sports – football, tennis and cricket.
  6. Thomas Hardy is one of the favourite writers ever!
  7. Writing happens best with coffee and some background noise.
  8. Blogging takes me into a whole different realm of reality and dreams.
  9. If there would be something called a closet fashionista, I would be one.
  10. Huge fan of Christopher Nolan esp when his movies have Hans Zimmer as the music director.
  11. Wish to be a bestselling writer someday.


Now for the answers to Neelima’s questions –

  1. Favourite role model – ahh, thats a toughie. In few things, my Dad and in some, my brother.
  2. Favourite fictional character from books and movies – Howard Roark and the Djoker.
  3. Have you ever come across writer’s block? Suggest some ways to overcome it. – Just keep writing and when you look back, even though you may have written a lot that you dont like, there will still be some that you really love. So keep writing!
  4. What would be your next blog about? – A review of a movie I saw recently.
  5. If you get an opportunity to interview a person who is now dead, who would you interview and why? – Shakespeare, to ask him where did he derive all the inspiration to write such masterpieces from.
  6. Describe “fun” in your own words – Being there with the loved ones – travelling, hanging out et al.
  7. Describe the most memorable incident of your life – None that I can remember now.
  8. If you are chosen to play the lead role in a movie:
    • Who would you like to be directed by? – Woody Allen
    • Who would play the lead opposite you and why? – Woody Allen himself – would love to be comic friends with him in the movie
    • Give the title of your film – Of coffee and musings
  9. Imagine you have come to know from you trusted doctor that you have 24 hours to live, enlist the things that you would want to do – Just fly down to the “Theatre of Dreams – Old Trafford.”
  10. What is the one thing that really gets you angry – Lack of empathy
  11. What is the difference between being alive and truly living – Being alive is when you do all the things that are probably expected out of you yet, not contended. Truly living is when you may not be the richest person in the world yet have happiness and satisfaction from doing whatsoever that you want. Could be something as seemingly trivial as blogging maybe!
