It's raining awards!!!

First it was Manju with her "Butterfly Award".

Then Gopinath had this irrefutable logic of a garden cannot have a single butterfly - you cannot argue against that....can you?? He added the second butterfly.

Krishnan awarded the PROXIMITY AWARD. This, however, comes with a rider. I am supposed to re-produce this paragraph as part of the award.

"This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in 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! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Let me now come to distributing the PROXIMITY award to some of my blogger pals.

I am most impressed by Nita, IHM, Manju, Priyank, Vinod Sharma, Prerna, Anrosh and Swaps. They get this award. I also give this award to Gopinath. He will be the ninth recipient and has already received this award. I presume there is no restriction in our perfect blogger world that a person cannot receive the same award twice....

Each one of them so truly deserves this award. From my perspective these blogs have become a daily must-read habit. Thank you all for enriching my life.

To end let me try and indulge in what has become the flavour of the season - "Say it Limerick Style"

Giving awards is a wonderful practice,
More so if they are to an apprentice,
Cheering my fledgling effort,
Helped developing adequate comfort,
To further churn out works of notice.

Mavin, thank you for the award...and for enriching me and the readers of my blog with your terrific comments which are always logical, balanced, mature and truthful.

Now it seems you have become a poet too...thank you for that great limerick on me on Gopinath's blog...

I wanted to thank you in similar vein
But all my efforts were wasted in vain
Deflected from my path
I wrote for Gopinath
And now that miss is giving me pain.

Believe you me Mavin, this limerick appeared out of nowhere, as I was writing this 'thank you' note!

Rhyming is fun, it does give some kick
Trying to thank you in a limerick
So Thanks and congrats,
but please don't forget,
I also gave you an award here,
which you haven't yet picked

manju said...

Congratulations! It does seem to be raining awards.:)

And thank you. I would write a limerick but unfortunately my writing abilities stop at prose!

Gopinath's "Artickles" said...

Hi Mavin. Great to learn about the rain you are experiencing ....of awards. I wish you receive more of them (trying to get back to good old prose).

Gopinath's "Artickles" said...

@Vinod - your deflection is due to the infection of a virus named "limerickitis" which prevents you to write in prose. Nice limerick there for Mavin!

swaps said...

"Proximity award", eh?? I think I will make this a theme for my photo.

Krishnan said...

Mavin, that was nicely said in limerick style. Expecting eagerly your posts on finance.

prerna said...

Thank you for the award Mavin.
So you are a poet too.Keep writing, it is a pleasure to know your views on different subjects. You come across as an unbiased and objective person.

Anrosh said...
