Award Time!!!!

I sat on it for a few days but did I tell you how much I LOVE getting awards?
The wonderful NewYearMum awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award and the Stylish Blogger Award (OK, so she asked me to choose, I took both of them, I am greedy  you see) . New Year Mum has dealt with all that life has thrown her way with such amazing grace that I feel nothing but respect for her. 
jjiraffe from TooManyFishToFry  also awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award. Girl, I was going to award you the same thing! I got delayed. :) jjiraffe is an amazing woman. A SAHM of twin toddlers, she inspires me everyday. 
Thank you so much.

The rules are similar for both the awards so here goes:
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Tell 7 things about yourself....(I will change this rule a little and tell you seven things about Danny and me combined)
1. Danny is named after a very dear bloggy friend of mine - Danelle. His Indian name is Agastya which means 'one who defeats the mountain'.
2. I hate cooking but love to eat mostly Indian food.
3. I have LARGE family. Three elder sisters and a younger brother. My eldest sister is 10 years older to me and my brother is 5 years younger..
4. I speak/read/write 3 languages, and learning the fourth. English is my third language.
5. I once helped a friend to run away from home when I was 18! Her parents were arranging her marriage with a guy she didn't like ans she was only 19. So I helped her run away and get a job.
6. I once slapped a guy in the middle of a market because he was getting too close. Guess what? He slapped me right back! Lesson learned - Never slap a guy in Delhi.
7. I like to try new things, experiment. And that includes religion. Have dabbled with most of the major religions of the world. Have also tried stuff life past life regression.
3. Award other bloggers The Versatile Blogger award is for 15 'recently discovered bloggers' and for the Stylish Blogger Award is for 15 blogs 'you feel deserve this award').... 
And the Award goes too....
Versatile Blogger Award: Unfortunately I have not read too many new blogs recently so can think of only two right now.

Congratulations on your award.

You know when we are young, people tend to give us money or small gifts before they go. So, I used to spend it all, and my bro used to save it. I once gave his entire saved money to a guy in the neighbourhood and he took a trip with the money! His mom spooned out my name from him and she told my mom. Guess, who got an earful?

Congratulations on the award - and a big THANK YOU for naming little old me. Sigh, I used to be stylish once upon a time.

I will chant for you and your family. It's a hard challenge for a man to be both a good father and a good husband if he never had a good example. I pray that he will dig deep. Perhaps an inspirational book he could read on the train would help?
