Thanks Kaddu. An award was exactly the thing that I needed the most. Considering from whom this award came, it means a world to me. Kaddu, you are one of the best and most admired bloggers .
Of late, a strange blue has surrounded me. I have no clue what it is. It happens to me sometimes. Without any visible or obvious reasons, I feel depressed. My mind tells me that I have no reason to feel depressed. I have an adoring family; A job that pays me rather well; an address of my own (my own house) and a beautiful wife and daughter; yet the world looks gloomy. But I guess it happens to all.
A lot of people inspire me. I was watching the interview of Vishal Bhardwaj the other day, and I was awestruck by his simplicity and nonchalance to all the success life has bestowed him. Look at him, the whole world is talking about Kaminey. For me, watching the movie was an awe-inspiring experience. All may not agree, but the movie was one of the finest in bollywood, at least in a long time. And then I watched this interview, and I was like, “WHAT? Is this the same guy who made this movie?”. He is my hero, and the cause behind the logic that true talent needs no self-promotion. You have it and it shows, and it will only show if you have it.
The Zombie Chicken Award
As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.
I am passing the award to 5 among the most talented of bloggers in my list. They sure inspire me, to say the least. They are in no particular order.
Aparna: You have rockstar-like abilities to attract. Every post of yours is a super entertainer. Wit comes to you naturally.
Sujata: What I have observed about you, you have an Arundhati Roy like sensibility to small things. You should try your hands at writing a book. You pass on the emotions to the reader in the most effective ways, with simplest of words. Way to go.
Sucharita: Vivid and candid: words that come to my mind. Reading your blog is traveling with you, to another era, as if it happened yesterday or the day before. You sure should write a book. You are a great narrator.
Santanu Da: I have this awe about him, he never stops inspiring me. In fact, I look at him as a reference point.
Gayathri: The youngest, yet a talent house. She is gifted and someone I look forward to reading all the time.
Thanks Kaddu, I just couldn’t wait to respond to this award. Any more awards? Let me know, I am a sucker for AWARDS.
P.S: All awards(recognitions) come with greater responsibilities....So does this...a Short story competition is coming up for the winners. I would give the topic and probably the plot too. All you have to do is to write a story.....So watch-out...
