Awards (accept and present)

I have received the following 3 awards which I would like to acknowledge.

Insignia presented me with Excellent Blog Award. She wrote:

“SG : He is an encyclopedia of information. Look forward to his posts as they have one or the other interesting trivia. So the Excellent Blog Award to SG”.

This is analogous to being called as “brahma rishi” by Vasishtar.

Neha presented me with I Love Your Blog Award. In her post "I Love to Read Them", she wrote:

“SG – The first time I visited his blog as he shares the same name that of my firm. And I am glad I visited his space, for I found the ocean of knowledge there. I admire him for his knowledge about history, Sanskrit and anything related to general knowledge. His each post and the comment section too is loaded with all possible kind of information about the topic he has blogged about. It is my dream to be his student one day”.

I am honored and humbled to receive this much accolade from Neha.

Lostworld presented me with Addicting Blog Award. She also picked a post from my blog for her readers to read. And, she chose “Musical Chairs in the Plane” written by me on September 25, 2009. I am glad she remembered in December 2009 what I wrote in September 2009.

I am honored and humbled to receive this award from lostworld.

Now it is time to present 2 awards to 3 people.

The first award, EXCELLENT, is presented to 2 lawyers. They are Neha and Sanand. They often write about legal issues and give us clarifications. I would not call them as just blogging. In USA, it is an unwritten rule that all lawyers (including famous and high-priced) do “pro bono” work. I do not know about India. But I consider Neha and Sanand do “pro bono” work through their blog contribution. That is why this award is presented to these 2 lawyers.

The second award. Award for Best Blog Comments, is presented to “Who Posted This?” He does not write any blogs. He does not comment for all the postings. He selectively makes his comments. I have a feeling more people visit my blog not just to read my posts but to read comments made by “Who Posted This?” also. His comments make me laugh and at the same time think. That is why this award is presented to him.

  23. Ummm…was that award really necessary for Who Posted This?

    That ass clown is totally undeserving of any award.

    It's true that he is handsome and debonair and very charismatic.
    I know that he is also highly intelligent and worldly and classy.
    Let's not forget that he is also courageous, funny as hell, and one of the sexxxiest MEN alive on this planet.
    And most of all - he is sooo modest because he never brags or boasts about himself.

    With all of that being said, he still doesn't deserve this honorable award.

    Regards,
    Aishwarya Rai

    p.s. Hey SG, can you tell me how to contact him - I've been trying to hook up with him for awhile now but he never returns my phone calls, e-mails, and text messages.

  24. You have got to be kidding me.
    Who Posted This? wins the award for the guy who puts up the best comments.
    That's ridiculous.
    Now if I refused to accept an OSCAR then he should refuse to accept this award...especially since I was waaayyy more worthy than him.

    Regards,
    George C. Scott (for Patton - May God have mercy on my enemies because I won't)

  25. Ok, for once in my life I’ll be serious.

    Thanks for the award SG.
    Not necessary but certainly appreciated.

    Also thanks to other people that said they like my comments (lostworld, Mindful Meanderer, Shruthi, Titaxy, and others)

    Regards,
    Who Posted This?

  26. Thanks for your comments Praseela. You made my day.

  27. Thanks for your comments Aishwarya. He may not deserve this honorable award. But he would never claim "NRI Status" to avoid income tax on the prize money.

    You want to hook up with him? Surprise. Surprise. I thought you said career is more important than anything else (including family).

  28. Thanks for your comments George. Please take a page from history and do as Marlon Brando did. Brando was awarded an Oscar in 1973 for the movie The Godfather. He was angry that the native American Indians are not treated properly and therefore refused to accept the award. However, he sent a native American Indian woman (in full apache clothing) to accept the award on his behalf.

    Please send an East Indian woman dressed in Kacheepuram Silk Saree to accept the award on your behalf.

    Thanks for reminding us Patton’s famous saying “May God have mercy on my enemies because I won't”. I also like his other saying “No one has won the war by dying for his country”.
