I am thrilled and accept the accolade with grace….But before that…
“Thank you! Oh! Thank you! I can hardly believe this! I feel so blessed! And these
I just want everyone to secretly suspect that even in my wildest hallucinations; I never would have fantasized that this could ever happen to me.
You know when they first told me (in my comment box) that there is a surprise for me on their blog, I just had to take a minute and think about how generous my FBs have been. I guess it all just makes me feel kinda numb!!
First off though, I want to thank the Fellow Bloggers in the Blogosphere, who looked deep within their hearts before giving me these fantastic awards! Also, I want to thank God, for being such a powerful force in my life. And to Mom & Dad, who taught me to take life by the horns. And to KG and AG, for being the guinea pigs in most of my posts! And finally, to all the readers – I couldn’t have done it without you!
Phew…that was quite an emotional ‘Acceptance Speech’!! 😉

Hearty congratulations to you, Shilpa, on receiving this bunch of coveted awards from all over!
This proves the degree of talent, the depth of thoughts, the height of buoyancy, the fervour for blogging and of course, the very art of socializing meaningfully & sincerely that has gone into on your way to becoming an adorable Star Blogger.
Kudos to you, Shilpa! You deserve it all truly.
I reckon, it’s time for you to bask a bit in the glory of this rainbow of awards, but am sure, you are not the one to be doing so, for the avid blogger that you are.
And thanks indeed for leading the Superior Scribbler Award, eventually, to me through Paritosh, the Superior Scribbler himself.

September 29, 2009 7:50 pm|
Dear Ms Shilpa whose nobbut a Rose
I really can;t praise you enough in prose
So I’m forced to say things in rhyme
So I hope you’ll forgive me just this one time
If you see my pages
you will now see
I didn’t quite give an award to thee
they went instead a different set
to whom nature filled the heart and head
But I enjoy your blog
read every post
comment on those
which move me most
Please keep up the good work
especially the fiction
where 55 words
limit your diction
Your courage I praise.
That, I’ve never tried
Though you have encouraged me
to go for a double-five ride
Thank you indeed
for the floral bouquet
of words and ideas
I come across each day
So though I never ever gave you a prize
I would like to give you a ‘virtual’ plant
of just the right size
not of course yet another rose
something less colourful but in perfume very close
A fragrant creeper called Clematis
With cruciform flower,pointed leaves, that is
a veritable perfumerie on your door step
to remind you of pleasures
you give others, adept.
And now I bid you, milady adieu
and hope on my blog to see you too
The last time I feted a female over there
it turned out to be male! Life’s not fair!
Tongue in Cheek!
Today’s word verification – gomit
Usage – The persons I’d like to gomit most of all are the lady indibloggers that I know!
November 26, 2012 8:57 am|
OH MY GOD!! This is the most wonderful and mostest beautiful words for my blog!! I am touched beyond words and kicking myself simultaneously about missing this post of yours on my blog!
Thanks a TON, truly appreciate it! 🙂
October 23, 2009 4:24 am|
Heyyyyy! Another one! Wow! Thanks! 😀 I was wondering when this one will come to me… I was even toying with the idea of gifting it to myself if nobody else did so in the next couple of months! :p
Btw, I just noticed… haven’t u collected the award from me till now… from here?
November 26, 2012 8:58 am|
LOL!! So, you got it now!! And so very deserving too! 😀
