First Liebster Award, Thanks Rajni

Quite often I came across "Liebster Award" related posts, to be honest I was a bit confused and never  even bothered to understand it. There are so many awesome bloggers and I feel myself a toddler out here. But Friday night when I received a comment from Rajni in one of my post, where she mentioned  "you have been nominated for the Liebster Award". I was little confused and immediately visited the mentioned URL. I was so much delighted to see my name, along with my blog link, in her list of nominated bloggers.  But what was that for? As it was a Friday night, so I didn't waste much time to understand that and thought to Goole it out later. In the next morning, I received one more similar kind of comment from Deepak. I had some idea that it would certainly be some kind of appreciation for my blog but I was totally blank. I opened the link that was mentioned in Deepak's comment. Wow!  I didn't have to google it any more, as Deepak explained it so perfectly in his post.  I got to know that Liebster Blog Award is basically a blogger to blogger award.  The award is usually given to upcoming new and deserving bloggers. OMG! I felt so honored and was really inspired to continue blogging

Right from my childhood, I was never a good reader and writing was simply out of context. But few months back, not very sure, why and how I started to write? Initially I started to post my shits in Facebook. I was very delighted to see few comments on my posts and those comments encouraged me to write more. Later  I started to post quite frequently in Facebook. Some of my friends and college seniors always appreciated me and encouraged me to write more. I would like to thank my good friend Diganta and two of my college seniors Paromita Ba and Pratibhu Da, who inspired me to start a blog of my own. I didn't have much idea about blogs and all, so I had to google a bit. After a few days, many of my school and college friends were very much surprised, when  I started my own blog and everyone wonder and  few of them even asked me "How cum all of a sudden you started to write now a days? What happened to you?"

I thank Rajni and Deepak from the core of my heart for nominating my blog for the award. Honestly, it means a lot to me. Now I am again little confused "since I got two nominations, do I have to write two posts or single post would be fine?" Since I got my first award from Rajni, I dedicate this post to her.

As per the rule, I must write 11 things about myself. OK, here they are:

1. I was born and brought up in Bongaigaon, a town is Assam

2. Sorry to say, but I am a true atheist, right from my childhood

3. I did my schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya BRPL. But our school doesn't exist now a days, as few     years back it became DPS(Delhi Public School)

4. I did my engineering from Assam Engineering College(AEC), in Computer Science and Engineering

5. I enjoy Rock and Metal music

6. I like to travel to new exotic places

7. I am quite lazy and was never competitive throughout my entire life.

8. Presently I work for a company named Onmobile Global Ltd, as an Engineering Lead

9. I am a big fan of thriller movies and watched most of the Hollywood thrillers.

10. I am extremely cool kind of person and don't usually take unnecessary tension.

11. Presently I am some kind of settled in Bangalore and stay with my wife Anjali and our little angel Jia
