A Note of Thanks..

Posted on

To Bloggers Premier League(BPL) & the judges of BPL for choosing my article Who Tires Faster as the best in the category and honouring me with this award.


GingerChai.com - Bloggers Premier League

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m honoured :)

Even though this was a boring topic, I knew it was one that I would immensely enjoy researching for as I had a reference point right at home in my husband who has been in the media industry for more than a decade. So a BIG thanks to him.

I also want to mention a journalist friend with whom I had a casual discussion about this topic a couple of days back which helped me a great deal in writing this article. So Sindhu, thanks to our talk the other day I got some valid points and links to refer for my post. Thank you for that :)

If you’re participating in a contest as a team, no win is complete without your team-members. And here I mention the 7 pillars of my team who helped me put my article together in our e-mag which we created for this particular round.

Ritu, Manna, Vibhuti, Deepak, Bik, Meghana & Karthik, a heart-felt thank you to each one of you and loads of hugs for being such wonderful teammates. Believe me it was immensely inspiring to be interacting with each of you. We may not have won this contest but we surely have found some great friends in each other :). And that’s the greatest win of all, right?? So here’s to friendship!

Last but never the least, Thank you ever so much to Lakshmi Rajan & his team at Cafe Ginger Chai for this opportunity called Bloggers Premier League. Because of you, I not only made some great friends, but got a chance to read a wide array of awe-inspiring posts. It was a revelation to come across such amazing bloggers spread across the blogosphere.

With this I end my acceptance speech post. Hopefully will be back with another one in the next season of BPL, this time with my team-members for winning the contest ;)!

Here’s wishing all the luck to the three playing teams for the upcoming rounds. May the best team win :)

PS: Here’s the link to our ezine Where Time Flies which has got us the award for Best Magazine. Yayyyy!!

    The stage drama is one which lost out to TV and Movies…

    D: You’re right, Sunder… Stage plays have been majorly hit because of the dominance of TV & movies :(
