A moment to Cherish: Liebster Award

What does liebster mean?
 Going by the denotation of its German roots it means Beloved, Boyfriend, Sweetheart & Dearest.

 What is Liebster blog award?
 In the context of blog writing, it means giving the honor to the most preferred or best loved blog/bloggers.

  Why is Liebster award given?
Liebster Blog Award is an Award that is given by the blogging community to new upcoming and deserving bloggers, (As per the rules set up by the blogging community at large, This award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers) in acknowledgement of the good articles and posts they have written. In presenting a fellow blogger with the reward, the nominee is encouraging him/her to continue creating interesting and inspiring posts… And therefore it is also a motivational Award.

A brief:
Where do I start?
Well…I have never, even in my dreams ever wrote a word to get awards of any sorts...this is not why I write for; I write to reach the hearts of the readers through my voice i.e. my writing and I believe if I can touch even a single heart and change their life as such evade them from suffering my work is done.
Getting appreciated and Nominated up for an award is only a glimpse of reaching out to people and I hope one day my dreams would come true.

At this vague end of the year…I was pleasantly surprised by Thewhitescape who nominated me for Liebster award. It’s time I should express my heartiest gratitude to thewhitescape, author of ‘One head many hats…One life many stories’ at . Continuing with the thanksgiving to thewhitescape, wish you this coming year bestows you with profound heights to both you and your writing.
