Liebstar Award – #2

Hey guys, it’s totally an honor to receive this award for the 2nd time. Well, it’s almost been more than 2 weeks having been nominated for this award by this awesome blogger friend of mine Avni. Thank you so much for nominating me for this award and I honestly apologize for delay in responding to this as I was damn caught up and stuck in my work.

Avni has already made her presence felt across many fellow bloggers already because of her humble and kind nature. You guys should definitely check out her blog 11avni11 she’s a sweet little 15-year-old girl who honestly writes all that pops up to her mind and intends to make her readers feel good & satisfied about what she writes.

Liebster Award

It’s an award in which bloggers nominate other bloggers for showing respect to their works and their dedication. It’s an appreciation and recognition for all the fellow bloggers out there in the blogosphere.

Let’s get back and answer the questions asked By Avni!

1. Day Or Night? – It’s a little difficult to answer this question for me to be honest with this. Day – Gives me an opportunity to start a fresh and keep hoping. Night – Gives me an opportunity to spend some lone time & find peace within myself.

2. Coffee Or Ice cream? – Coffee for sure. Because, In one word – I just love it.

3. Winters Or Summer? – Winters it is. Simply because I love winter season as all the activities related to Christmas begins and there will be Carols, Christmas Sweets, Celebrations everywhere, Cake and so on.. πŸ˜€

4. High School Or University? – Yet again, it’s really difficult for me in some situations to choose between two. Like in the case of Day & Night and now this. Let me reason out why.. High School – Nostalgic! days which remains in one’s memories for the rest of our lives. University – Teenage time where in you undergo all sort of emotional battles and you’re in phase of transition from amateur teenager to a mature young adult. These two-phase being one of the most memorable days of my life. I really can’t opt between one and thus explained both of it.. πŸ˜‰

5. Dancing Or Singing? – Singing for sure. Being able to play guitar and sing along.. Dancing has never been my cup of tea.

6. Reading Or Writing? – Both again.. (I’m so sorry breaking your rule of choosing just one πŸ˜› ) Reading – It makes me feel good basically when I get along and connect with the other person has penned down. Writing – It lets me ease out my emotions in times of joy, in times of stress and so on.. πŸ˜‰

7. Children Or Parents? – OMG! Avni.. this question is surely like “Which one do you like the most? Your Left Eye or Right Eye?” πŸ˜› (Of-course, to a married man though). I being single, I have all the liberty to choose Parents as of now as I don’t have any children yet.. πŸ˜›

On a serious note. Children and Parents when they get older and older as we grow up.. They both are just one and the same. Their isn’t much difference between them if we look at them right? One request to all those who are reading this note.. please please take care of your parents when they start getting old in the same way as they managed to take care of you when you were a kid. We know it too right? we had no clue of what to we wanted at that moment but they still managed to understand it and provide us with it just to keep us happy and satisfied. If at all we attempt to just to do a little bit of what they did for us. Then, no doubt they will have their best of time in their old age. πŸ™‚

8. Street Art Or Paintings by Professionals (eg. Mona lisa, starry night)? – Street Art – No specific reason to it. Just like them.

9. Instagram Or Facebook? – Instagram – Because it is filled with only pictures that talk to me much closely and I connect with it well than I do with Facebook these days.

10. Hill stations Or Beaches? – Beaches for sure. I love the incomparable peace we get by seeing those tides running towards us and leaving us behind with a subtle touch. Gushing sound of tides, morning sunrise and evening sunset makes me feel happy within. πŸ™‚

11. What do you like the most about India? (Your views about India). – India being my country! I love it the most. Their isn’t just one thing that I love the most about India. There are many things of course. Being such a diversified country with huge masses living together and talking in various languages but still are together living in one piece of land and that is India to me. Diversified with different cultures but united with one proud though that we are Indians! and this I love the most.

In the end. Thank you so much again Avni for giving me this opportunity to answer these amazing questions. I really enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

What is this Sunshine Blogger Award?

This award is given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community.

Below are the answers to the questions asked – πŸ™‚

  • Why did you start blogging?

Well, the answer is I always wanted to have a blog of my own and pen down my thoughts and expressions through it. But, it never really came true until 7 – October – 2017. It was the day when I finally stepped into blogging community ever since then I am loving what I am doing here. I enjoy writing in my free time.

  • Who is your favorite blogger?

My favorite bloggers are many and among them all. I really enjoy reading the way Dr. Perry writes in his blog. He writes really well and motivates many others too on his blog MakeItUltraβ„’.

  • What keeps you going and motivated?

There is no single mantra that keeps me going or motivated. In-fact, there are many. To name one of it. It is always that desire in me to scribble my thoughts and ideas by which I am personally motivated or inspired. At the same time if it serves the purpose of helping out others too. Then that definitely makes my day and keeps me going.

  • Which is your weirdest habit?

Ummm.. there isn’t any such weirdest habit that I have or is coming to my mind right now! πŸ˜€

  • What is your favorite cuisine?

It is undoubtedly, my all time favorite “Hyderabadi Biryani” πŸ˜‹

  • What is your that personality trait which you would like to change in yourself?

Well, it would be my anger and less patience. At times I really get impatient and lose my temper. Which I am really working on improving on it. πŸ™‚

  • What are the first three things you always notice in a person?

i) Attitude – How grounded he/she is so that he/she freely speaks to everyone around without any ego.

ii) Honesty – According to me. It is one of the pre-requisite for a person to be honest and straight forward no matter what. Because, I believe when you are honest and straight forward things are straight enough to handle and less messier with very little complications.

iii) View point – I personally believe. In being positive with whatever I do. It is for sure to have both positive and negative in everything around us. But, it is up to us on how we take it. If we start looking at things in a positive way. Definitely, positive starts flowing in and around you. So this is what I would look forward to see in every person i come across. Be advised (on my personal experience again). If at all you find negativity in anyone try to explain about it and change it to the best of your efforts.

  • Which is the best book you have read till date?

It would definitely be – The Be Happy Attitudes by Robert Schuller. It was one of the books I read long ago. But, it still remains on of the best book I have read till date.

  • How do you deal with the negative comments of the people about your appearance or anything else?

Well, if you ever get any such comments. Be assured, you are being noticed. It means you are making a difference. There is something unique in you that is making people talk about you. Take it in this way. If they are spending their valuable time in talking about you. Then you are worth their time and that’s awesome πŸ˜€ Keeping it short. Until you are happy with what you are and if you are confident about your appearance. I really don’t think you should even bother about such negative comments and like I said earlier in this answer convert that negative comment as a compliment in your mind. It will make you merrier and happier again πŸ˜‰

  • What is the meaning of your name?

Haha.. I have always heard my grandfather relating me to be a king (i.e. in terms of wisdom and knowledge through lord almighty) and my name is Richard because my father loved it. So in correlation to this. I would prefer keeping the meaning of my name the same as grandfather explained it to me. πŸ˜›

  • What is your goal in life?

To be truthful and honest by walking in faith. Humble and polite to my parents. Attain all the enormous success in my career and riches in the world so that I can keep myself and all my loved one’s happy. πŸ™‚

Alright, 10 questions asked by Ritika to me and the answers for those are as follows. 

  • What are your future plans about writing?

Well, honestly I had always dreamt of writing and having a blog of my own from my college days to be precise. This dream of mine was finally accomplished on 7th Oct 2017. I would never forget that day. Having said this about how I started. Coming to plans, there isn’t any particular plan or such. But, I would definitely continue my writing to keep myself motivated and at the same time help every other reader who reads my posts and is benefited by it.

  • Who is your role model?

Role model. It would be no other person than My Parents. More specifically Mom. She is such a Gem. All that I am today is because of her. If it was not for the scoldings I received from her when I was in 1st standard of my schooling. For having failed in English. Maybe I wouldn’t have been here today writing something in English. It’s because of her. From that very day, I have never failed in any subject or anything for that matter. Having been given all the freedom in whatever I do. Mom and Dad were always supportive. To me in real life. They truly are my role model forever. 

  • What is your definition of love?

Love. This is something that I love the most. I Believe. Love is such a feeling which cannot be described. But can only be felt. Truly, this is that amazing feeling which you get when you are with the person you feel very attached to, with whom your really comfortable. In short, you can be yourself when your with that person (Be it your Parents, Brother, Sister, Friends, Girlfriend, Boyfriend or anyone for that matter). 

  • How do you promote your blogs?

When I got this question of how should I promote my blog. I did honestly approach Reema D’souza my Junior at college but is a Senior when it comes to blogging. She suggested me to keep writing and being active on my blog. This by itself will do most of the work of promoting and she also did a shout-out for me once on her Instagram handle. Along with it. At present. I am focused on writing the posts that makes a difference to the reader. I also post the images and link of the same on Instagram handle. 

  • Which is your best post so far?

My best post so far is Wake up. This post is all about how we make some plans and fail executing it. Because of procrastination. So, how do we really tackle it. To get more insight on the post content. I believe you need to visit it and enjoy reading it πŸ™‚

  • Where do you get most of the content from?

Content I write is all from my personal experience. All that I have gone through in my life and how I have managed coming of it. All the courage and encouragement I got by either reading some motivational articles or seeing some videos when I needed it the most. I make an honest attempt to simplify my experiences and write all of it. Well, On which Topic to write on. I get the prompts from all my loved ones around me πŸ™‚

  • Which stereotype irritates you the most?

Bullying. It is one thing I hate the most. Well, making fun of someone is fine. It’s all cool until the person made fun off is also is also enjoying it and okay with it. The moment it crosses the threshold of fun and exceeds. It gets personal. People will get annoyed. It will destroy their mental peace. So, I personally believe. Fun is okay. But we all need to a little careful so that fun don’t get turned to Bullying. 

  • What are your goals regarding blogging?

In the long run. I would want myself to see as a successful blogger. I have seen many a times people start blogging and over the course of time the blog becomes inactive. First goal is to make sure I write all the posts with honest and good content. So that end of the post, reader should feel it to be worth of his/her time. Second, to win the goodwill of as many fellow bloggers to learn from their feedback and keep growing in this blogging world. 

  • What makes you different from others?

I personally, believe every individual is bound to be different. My friends call me a Passenger Train. πŸ™‚ Mainly, because I like to talk with anyone I come across in very short time. Many say, I connect well with the people I mingle with. Thus, hopeful that my posts will connect with the readers too. So the Connectivity it is. the standout thing in me which makes me a little different from others.
