Finally an AWARD my way...and not an Lifetime achievement award....


Prologue: Before you guys say, "AWWW NO, not another Tag", i must tell you that this is an award and not a tag. So stop nagging and ranting....:)))

Finally, I have made it in life thanks to Sucharita on circa 29/06/2009(i have to mention the date as per the rules). Before I could finish my comment on Global Madrasi’s blog about him wining an award, I was tagged and awarded. The comment I wrote in that blog was-(( :- wow, congrats. i wonder when will i get an award. i think i am like Dharmendra, no awards in his entire career, only LIFE TIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.just kidding...:))))))

Oh boy, I do have a karinakku .

I have always wanted to go on stage and collect some award. I have watched several Oscar award nights and fascinated by the display of shock, joy and bewilderment by the awarded actors.

I may or may not win another award in my life time, but I want to take this opportunity to make a “Thank you speech”.

“First of all, a big THANK YOU to you, Sucharita, for considering me and being so thoughtful that I deserved this award. All I have is a frail vocabulary and dreadful writing skills which comes in my path in thanking you in the most appropriate way.

I would like to remember my Dad, who took all the possible efforts in making me initiate into the world of letters. The stories and fairy tales he read to us children and the imaginary yet tangible world he took us into, has all resulted in the person I am today, standing at this juncture to collect this prestigious AWARD. I remember the first comic book he bought me, without waiting too long for my stubborn cries. If my memory is correct it was a hindi comic of Chacha Choudhary, and how the bald man from JUPITER captivated my imagination so much that I started my own juvenile research into possibilities of finding another such bald man from Jupiter, who would do anything for me, including flicking a jar of Cadbery’s Dairymilk from the CSD canteen.Those were the days when Larry page was as unpopular and unknown as I am today, and google would have sounded an offensive word.What I want to say is that there was no GoOGLE and I had to search through heavier-than-me Encyclopedias to come to the conclusion that Jupiter is anything but an affable planet.

My Chemistry teacher, the lady, who once had one look at me and proclaimed that I would never make it in my life. I want to thank her for bringing the resolve in me, that one day I would prove her wrong and show her HYPERMYOPIC-EYES that sheer dedication and determination alone can lead anyone from a nasty boy to an award winning blogger that I am today, Ladies and gentlemen.( thanks to Sucharita again).

I also want to thank my wife, who believed in me, and made continuous promises to read my blog( which she has never kept, thanks to my already mischievous daughter). I also want to thank her for being featured as a character in this blog without her consent, in most of my blog posts. without otherwise this award wouldn’t have been possible.

Last but not the least, My fellow bloggers, Google and Microsoft for the WORD, without whose support I wouldn’t be typing this Award speech.

Thank you LADIES and GENTLEMEN for your continuous support.

Looks like Tags are pouring in more than the monsoon. I hope this is my last tag for at least few months. Oh, I think I have one more to go.

P.S: I have been writing self-degrading posts lately, I guess it’s time to prove how erudite am I(AHEM) . My next post is going to be a BOOK REVIEW. So watch out.

Ciao all..

Gymnast said...

Hey there..

Thanks for the award , i am honoured.My mom , after a great deal of censoring , and inspite of a big drama put up by me , made me remove my last post. She says i can post as i wish after i get married , and move out of her house!

And as a response to this taking away of my fundamental right , i was planning to quit blogging...since anyway i dont have the freedom to do as i please.
But this award thing is such a nice surprise that its making me rethink my decision.

Thanks again!
