More blog awards to pass on

I noticed that I have three nomination posts to acknowledge and pass on. So, decided to do that today.

First, I’d like to thank Lori from Creating Beauty in the Kitchen for nominating me for a Liebster award. Delighted to accept the nomination. If you have not visited Lori’s blog yet, please do so as her delightful healthy recipes and craft work will be sure to enchant you.

I am combining my nominations for passing on this Liebster award with my nominations for the next award from Adorable Life blog. Thank you, Nimmi, for nominating me as part of your WordPress Family. Honoured and delighted to accept this special nomination. Within five months of starting her blog, Nimmi has shared many tasty recipes that she has been trying out. Do visit her blog, if you have not done so already.

Finally, thank you once again  Nimmi, for nominating me for another blog award – this time, the Inspiring blogger award. Appreciate it much.

I’d like to nominate the following fifteen bloggers, for the Inspiring blogger award, whose posts I enjoyed very much during the past week.

Congratulations to all the lovely bloggers and in lieu of questions, I’d appreciate it if you do share a favourite memory of yours, be it travel, music, movie or books.

To wrap up this nomination acceptance and passing it on post, I would like to share a lovely music clip. I have had this CD for over a decade now and had purchased it because it had one of my favourite musicians, tabla maestro Zakir Hussain, and one of my father’s favourites, South Indian violin maestro Kunnakudi Vaidyanathan collaborating together. Until recently, I did not know that A.R.Rahman was the keyboard player in this album and this was very early on in his music career. As this is A.R.Rahman music month on this blog, I am sharing this lovely clip from the Golden Krithis Colours album (1992).

Have a great week!

  1. Congratulations, Ahila! This is so well-deserved🙂 Thank you so much for including my blog in your list. I like your number 3 and number 6 responses. Thanks again for sharing this video, love the sound of the Tabla! Have a nice week😉

  3. Thank you for the nomination! I enjoyed reading your question and answer session🙂 I very much relate to your answers to #1 and #10! A memory related to music AND travel – when we were in Istanbul on vacation, we were walking down the street when this beautiful music filled the square. We had to track down the location to find the music – it was Omar Faruk Tekbilek’s “I love you” and is still a favorite.

    • Thank you for sharing a lovely memory of yours related to music and travel. I listened to the song you mentioned and it is indeed lovely. Istanbul is one of the places I hope to visit within the next five years.
