My Awards

These awards were given to me by other bloggers and are linked to them. Do remember that most of these awards, as they are given by other bloggers, are not “official” awards, but simply reflect the love they have given me.

This award was given to me by Paul of Cafe Philos.

The Honest Blogger Award has been given to me by Vishesh and Reema

Poonam interviewed me for her site. Read Interview

Vishesh and Amit gave me the Butterfly award and the Cup . Vishesh said that he gave this award for “the effort you put into each post and the info, the butterfly for presentation.” Smitha awarded me the Butterfly award for “a wide angle view on many subjects.”

The Proximity award has been given by Nimmy, Reema and Mish. The award is given for a “blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships.” Mish very sweetly writes “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement!”

There was also an award voting competition set up by Poonam Sharma in which I picked up a few awards. Not a bad haul considering I did not canvass for it. The awards are for individual posts and I have linked each award to the post on my blog which won the award.

Indian Homemaker also gave me the Resonance award. She very kindly the award is for my “brilliant, well researced, objectively written posts on every subject under the sun, from premarital sex, to movie reviews, to terrorism, gender bias including blaming of the victims, poverty, elections and all that can be called current affairs. Her blog is the place to go to if we need to stay in touch with the world”.

The Outstanding Blogger award has been given to me by Dev for “being a consistent, honest and an interesting blogger.” Dev has also said the following:

I have known Nita only through her blog and her comments. I haven’t met her in real or even interacted with her out of blogosphere (email etc). Nita’s blog is read by all and sundry. People from all ages, all races, all kinds of professional backgrounds and finally all kinds of different schools of thought visit her blog and share their diverse opinions (one recent post on a very controversial issue and hundreds of varied comments give you an idea regarding her blog’s popularity and her blog being a common platform for meeting of minds!). There are both 17 year old teenagers and 60+ men and women who flock her blog. The simple reason for her accessibility to and connection with everyone is her honesty, warmth and openness towards different people and their viewpoints. You cannot agree with any person in this world all the time. Similarly, some people might not agree with Nita’s views too, but that doesn’t stop her to express herself freely; she will rather be honest than care too much about how people will interpret her views. In her writing and comments, you can find both scholarly wisdom and child like enthusiasm in varying degrees depending upon the context and the nature of the post. Though I have one request for you Nita. I sometimes get a feeling that you have a very active fun side to yourself which I suspect you don’t show to us that much. We want to see bit more of that Nita too . Once again, thank you very much for your blogging Nita!

In fact, his writing all this is enough of an award for me! Thanks Dev!

The Blog-o-laureate award award has been given to me by Arpit. He writes that “This award is meant to honor the bloggers who have done astounding work, have come up with useful and enlightening posts and who actually in my opinion are the pride of the blogosphere”.

I have also won the “IndiBlogger of the Month” contest for the best blog on Politics & Current Affairs. This was based on votes and I was voted in out of a total of 129 candidates. What makes me happy is that I won without canvassing, and without announcing it on my blog. I feel this is a fair way to win. I did call up two blogger friends to ask them to vote for me, but that’s it. I actually don’t think I am the best blog but well, am thankful for the award! The actual award will be sent to me after they design a special one and when it arrives it will be inserted here.


IndiBlogger - The Indian Blogger Community

Vishesh gave me The Golden Pen award and the Addicting Blog award. His reasons: “Her views are very similar to mine(and at times I have understood my stance better thanks to her). I love her well researched posts , always informative..and of course the comment section is another world by itself.” Kanagu has also given me this award.

Kanagu gave me the Inspirational award for this reason: “For inspiring me to write some political stuff and reviews without any bias. He also gave me the Lens award because “they are bloggers who love to see the truth as it is and will go any length to get the clear picture”. Reema also gave this award.

Recently a site gave me this badge:

Top india blogs award

A wide angle view of India

Top india blogs

The Humane award was passed on to me by Kanagu, for those who show humanity and kindness:

Here are more awards from Kanagu and Reema gave me these too:

This blog was given to me by Kanagu and then by Reema:

This is another I love your blog award, this time from Reema:

    Hi Nita…I have been following your blog for quite a while. You changed the template :) ?

    Anyway, congratulations for crossing 1 million hits :) and all the best for your blog…quite late, but still..hope you extract the optimism out of it |

    cheers!

    Thanks Veer. Good to hear from a reader. :) Yes I changed the template as I was getting a little tired of the old one. This one is easier on the eyes and less cluttered I think. – Nita.

    Hello Nita,
    This is receipt of your brilliant work. Your are really great.
    your blogs are always been intelligent, educational, focused on social issues, well studies, well presented.
    You are great. hats off to you.
    Keep it up.. and all the best.

    one more thing, buy your own domain, you have huge number of fan followers, traffic is very good on your site. think of earning monay as well by posting google ads on it.

    Thanks Vichavan. And just today I was thinking I was so tired of all the work, and wanted to quit the blog! I am serious, this was exactly what I was thinking and then I saw your comment. Something to keep me going! Well, about own domain, for me that is out of the question, because of technical issues. I am quite blank on that and struggle even with minor tech issues here on wordpress. As for ads, I am quite sure I do not want to earn money through my blog, not now at least. I want to thank you for taking the trouble to write the comment. It made my day and resolved to keep me going! – Nita.

      By the way, I recently checked the monetary value of this blog and it the valuation was about 1 Lac dollars! (Reema’s sidebar has that widget).

  6. October 12, 2008 8:09 pm

    OMG!!! U were thinking of quitting ur blog??? From all your old readers who fail to appreciate you and motivate you once in a while and take you for granted I apologise. Even if we dont express it u must know how much we love your blog, how much its part of our daily reading, how much we are used to it :) Blog on dear!

  7. October 12, 2008 8:11 pm

    If u quit blogging , it will be like Merill Lynch going bankrupt and whole blogosphere will go in crisis. People will get fired from their job of writing long comments and arguing at length in blogosphere :P :D

  8. October 12, 2008 9:20 pm

    Reema, thank you for those kind words! :) Well, I have never felt so strongly about giving up as I felt today. It’s just that so many things have come together that I am just about tearing my hair due to lack of time. I think I need to take a break to fulfill some other commitments, but not right now as during Diwali I will be taking a break anyway!
    Thank you being there.

    Hi Nita,
    You are an excellent Human i ever met in “writing” with complete unbiased & balanced views.There is a strong need for people like you in todays english electronic media where people has to just skip present channels due to their biased views.Now i had replaced those biased english channels with your blogs.Once i encountered a complete opposite view in one of your article.But you were kind enough to entertain my point of view without any bias.

    Well, i can hear you quitting from Blogging only if you are starting a new English channel for India. otherwise i cant afford to miss your blogs.

    Kumar, thank you for saying this, it is indeed the best thing that anyone has said about me and my blog. I try hard to be unbiased, and even though I have my own views, I try to accomodate others views as well, and its good that some people feel I am suceeding. And while I am too poor to start an English channel, I will not give up blogging. At tiimes I consider the idea, but the feeling has never lasted more than a day. – Nita

    • November 4, 2009 10:45 pm

      Nita,
      I only hope that feeling never comes up, coz, it would mean a big loss to the blogosphere.
      Lots enjoy, and many more will be enjoying your blog in the future.
      Thanks for your concern towards us.
      Happy Blogging!

    You will succeed.
    That will be biggest award and actual use of your time spent here.
    Good Luck!!!

    May this confession be the equivalent of Eklavya’s Gurudakshina to Dronacharya! Thank you so much!

    Rashid, Sri, Dev, Nikhil, Vasudev, Kaber, Shailesh, Rambler, Jalpesh and all those who have taken the trouble to congratulate me or say something nice about this blog. Believe me, all your comments of appreciation mean a lot to me and inspire me to keep blogging.
