I express my heartfelt thanks to Jyotirmoy Sarkar for nominating me for The Bloggers Recognition Award. His blog at http://jyotirmoysarkar.blogspot.in contains posts coming straight out of his heart and strike a chord in the heart of the reader.

- Write a post to show your award.
- Briefly tell your blogging journey.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
- Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award.
- Comment on each blog you have nominated to inform them and share the link you have created.
My journey as a blogger
My journey of writing started off as a Hindi writer and further moved on as an English reviewer of books and (mostly Hindi) movies. I used those writings only for the purpose of blogging. I blog both in Hindi and in English and try to be a constant learner. I do not write for the public. I write only for my heart’s contentment, venting out my own stuffiness, giving expression to my thoughts and feelings and my own creative satisfaction. This journey is endless and does not require any destination.
My advice to new bloggers
Since plagiarism is a big problem in the world of writing and art, I only advise the new bloggers to abstain from it. It’s legally incorrect. And it’s ethically incorrect as well. Let your conscience be your guide and pen only original without plagiarizing the creation of anybody else.

I have come across many more excellent bloggers. However since the number of nominees has been prescribed as 15 only for this contest, I have no other choice but to leave out many deserving candidates. I apologize to all of them whom I am not able to nominate because of this restriction.
Good luck to all.
