An excited, squeaky and lump-in-my-throat Hello there to all you lovely people!
I am a complete newbie to the world of blogging and have been at it for a couple of weeks. I used to just scribble in my free-time and completely annoy my parents and friends by making them sit through my ‘read-throughs’. I refused to blog even though they suggested many-times, thinking the tap might not work on demand. With their repeated insistence I started Nimbu Mirchi as a serious attempt to consolidate my writings and hopefully share them with a few who would care to read.
Two weeks down the road and I find myself truly humbled by the honour of the Versatile Blogger award which was so kindly bestowed upon me by the brilliant, funny and very versatile Maritz Nicole (Do visit her brilliant blog about her shenanigans by clicking on this link). Her writing is funny and completely immersive. She simply takes me to such different worlds with her writing. And I assure you, her blog will bring a smile to your face.
I thank her and all the awesome bloggers who take time to read my scribblings and then go ahead to like and comment on them. Your overwhelming encouragement gives me wings. To all those who follow Nimbu Mirchi and all those of you who have visited even one of my posts a heartfelt thank you. I am powered to write more and more and its all due to your support. Needless to say, Nimbu Mirchi would not be here if it weren’t for my parents or my friends who kept saying, “Can you just put all this on a blog somewhere?”.
So what does it mean to be a Versatile Blogger Nominee and Award holder?
I am thankful that Maritz Nicole sees potential in my writing and considers it to be worthy of the standards of the VBA award. But it also means that I have to bring my game-face on. And that I have to continue to write, and write and write well.
“Consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page.”- Versatile Blogger Award

P.S. Here are 7 facts about me

- I am trained in an Indian classical dance form called Bharatanatyam that dates back to more than 2000 years.
- I have an extremely diminished sense of smell 😦
- I work in a cubicle as an insurance underwriter, which seems boring to most people. But I love my job and find it stimulating. Not to mention the romantic notion of strangers helping each other in times of need without ever knowing it.
- I love travelling to near and distant lands as much as I love my hometown of Pune, India.
- I have a savage fondness for deserts, chocolates and other Indian sweets.
- I love laughing and trying to make people laugh.
