Blog of the Day Award

Lighting does strike twice. In my case it's two of the very unexpected blogging awards from sources not even known to me. In the last post, I mentioned Linq.in. This time it is considerably bigger - The Blog of the Day Award.

I have been informed by Bill that I have won the Labour Day BOTD award [link]. This is such a momentous moment in my blogging life! I can't find words to describe my feeling.

I would like to thank

  • My parents - who hardly know that I exist (on the blogosphere),
  • My sister - who criticises me in a very sisterly cute way to make me feel  a tad inept,
  • My brother-in-law - who used to snoop around in my blog and my computer to make sure that I wasn't straight,
  • My esteemed readers - all 14.45 of them (as counted yesterday),
  • My bands Noise Market & Shoonyas - who continuously provide me with emotional trauma and fun (respectively),
  • My love, Vinokur - who never ceases to love me. It's incredibly true. I fuck-up almost daily. But as history tells us, Jews are perseverant. 
  • My neighborhood - with its wonderful blend of curses, stench and noisy children, it provides a wonderful environment for blogging,
  • My troubled childhood - without which I wouldn't be scarred in the way that I am,
  • .......
  • .......
  • .......
  • The suburban railway network in Mumbai - for serving me cheap thrills and hot men on the platter of inconsistent odour,
  • .......
  • .......
  • The fruit-wallah near my erst-while hospital - for providing me with incredibly tasty pine-apple plates at Rs. 5/-,
  • .......
  • .......
  • And finally, my friendly neighborhood laundromat - which I have just seen all but a few glimpses of; I can't afford it :(
