This is my second award on blogger and m super thrilled
It is said that Liebster blog award is started in Germany and is used to highlight budding blogs or rather another way to acknowledge that they have done a good job. This is awarded to upcoming bloggers by fellow bloggers. It’s for blogs with 200 or less followers and so is a way to spread a word about budding blogs and get them more readers.
Now its my time and here you go :
Rules: When you receive the award you must post 11 random facts about yourself. Then you should answer 11 questions that the nominator has set for you. Now it’s your turn to pass the award to 11 other deserving bloggers, linking them in your post and ask them 11 questions. You are not allowed to nominate back the blog(s) who nominated you. Visit their page and inform them about their nomination too.

As I look into the rear view mirror, I realize that I have changed a lot since the last year. I have stepped out of my comfort zone and demolished my self erected boundaries which were created to identify myself, the real me.There was a phase in my life when I felt that I had completely lost my identity. But after 3 years of introspection I'm clear of who I am and my goals. I have managed to create my own individual identity. A good student, a poet, a deep thinker, a blogger. This is how the outside world identifies me but among all these tags how many know the real me? Can i extend their vision beyond these tags?
Let's admit it, we love being tagged. The kind of tags given to us by people we encounter in our daily life. An understanding friend, a good poet, a doting daughter. We associate ourselves with these tags so much, that in this process we feel our own identity fading away. Hardly anybody knows the emotional baggage the good poet carries, the true emotions of a daughter or the broken heart of am understanding friend. In retrospect I realize that I HAD to lose myself in order to find myself, I had to fall to rise again. I am changing everyday. I discover something about myself everyday which is beyond the tags I have been given by the world. I am creating my own identity which doesn't fit into someone's 'stature'. My past has sculpted my present, and my present is sculpting my future.
Don't just associate yourself with the tags the world gives you, discover things about you. Trust me, it's a wonderful journey :) jump in the wagon and enlighten the trip :)
Problems in any kind of relationship are like the rain. They can either destroy everything, or make the relationship stronger. Rain also plays a dual role. Here I draw a parallelism between rain and problems in relationships.
The sky thunders loud as the clouds approach the heavens cry I can feel the rain Teardrops settle on my skin Insecurities creep in and I feel pain. As dark clouds of doubt overshadow the sun I feel cheated of a childhood dream In the bludgeoning of chances fear leaps in All I can do is shout and scream
Rain disturbs the placid lake Devoid of movement and action Our love was devoid of emotions or concern Survived by white lies and passion The dew drops as fragile as relationships Trickle down the petals as they open There is still some love that is left, There are still some promises unbroken -Nupur (strictly fictional)
