Another Award

I have been presented with this Cherry on Top award by Insignia. Thank you very much Insignia and it is an honor to receive an award from you.

There is a ground rule for accepting this award. I have to say 3 good things about me.

Usually when describing about themselves, people are critical …..unless they are in an interview situation. Most of us think saying good things about us are considered as self-praise. Still, since this post calls for saying 3 good things about me, here they are:

1. We have been living in the United States for a long time and still converse only in Tamil at home.

2. I will give anything, including my own life, for those people who I love and who are dear and near to me. I consider their happiness is my happiness. Every day I pray God for their health and happiness. As the Tamil saying goes, even if they need Tiger’s milk I will get it for them. Incidentally, they are the same people I engage in petty arguments and fights.

3. Whenever I help someone (like a sick person unable to afford a doctor or operation), only me and my wife will know about it. Sometimes, even the patient will not know who helped.

Now, I would like to present this award to the following:





Please accept this award. Thanks.
