The above quote sort of sums up what I feel now but I can't deny the sheer joy of receiving Awards. When I go to some of the sites of the oldtimers, they have so many of these "Honest Blogger Award, Cutest Blogger Award, Foggiest blogger Award........" displayed very proudly & I always spend some time examining them.
In a year or two I will attempt some changes in my page layout wherein I'll make it 3 column page & fill the left side of my page with only Awards.
In the meantime I patiently wait for my blogger-friends to award them to me.
The 2nd reason why I love receiving Awards is to grandly award them to my set of blogger-friends. I sort of feel like Julia Morley announcing the Miss World Contest winners.
Now before I start sounding like one of those awardee's who embarrass the audience by talking too much on stage.....
And the award goes to .....
Deeplydip: For 'Styalogue'
Goofy Mumma: For 'Quack Rites'
JP Joshi: For 'My Philosophical Thoughts'
Shalom: For your Photo-Blog
Winnie The Poohi: For your Poetry blog:-)

I also received this Proximity Award from Winnie
There is a clear-cut message which accompanies this Award:
"This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers I'm passing it on to these wonderful bloggers:"
It is to be passed to 8 other bloggers for the sentiments above.
And they are....
Balvinder Singh: For Frankly Speaking Blog
Renu: For your Rasoi:-)
It's been a long post in the sense that it took me ages to link everybody up. So I am not exactly in a stable state to whip up a brilliant conclusion. And since I began my post with a quote, I take your leave with one too.....
“To those of you who received honours, awards and distinctions, I say Well Done. And to the C students I say, YOU too can be President of United States." George W Bush, 43rd US president since 2001.
