An “Involving” Week and Surprises.

This week was extremely involving. I wasn’t busy as most may say, but I just didn’t have time to sit and type. With a long weekend here, I’ll finally be posting more and am transforming into vacation mode with a one day trip to Agra!

In my absence however, two of my blogger friends surprised me with awards! My excitement was beyond control. Lovely Phoenix from The Perfect Phoenix nominated me for the Infinity Dreams Award, and a huge Potterhead Erika from Erika The Bibliophile nominated me for the Creative Bloggers Award. Be sure to check out their blog. They both write amazingly well. I particularly like Phoenix’s poems and since we’re both Potterheads, I don’t think me and Erika have trouble talking.

  •  Thank and follow the blog that nominated you.
  • Tell us 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the questions that were set for you to answer.

The answers to Phoenix’s questions are:

  1. How would you describe a rainbow to a blind person?
    It’s the most perfect creation that God could have come up with. Seven colors. They can change the world. 
  2. How long have you been writing? Why?
    I’ve been writing ever since I was in class four. I remember I wrote my first poem in Hindi for my mom who was angry with me. My first English poem was this
  3. What do you think is one thing without which you wont be able to stay sane? And why is that?
    Umm, it changes. The first thing that came to me mind was my family, but then she isn’t a thing. Then I thought that my phone. But I’ve been without WhatsApp for three weeks and it isn’t very tough. So maybe, I just need will to live without something. But, a more satisfactory answer would be my books. 
  4. What is the earliest dream you remember?
    I don’t remember. But a dream that I remember vividly would be the one which gave me idea for my story. 
  5. Do you think you were born in the right generation? Why/why not?
    Not. I think I’d have been more happy if I was born in the time when and where my father was born. Never thought I’d say this but I really envy the life that my father and my grandfather led. It’s the most perfect one I could imagine and would love to swap with them anytime.
  6. What do you pride yourself on?
    My blog.
  7. What symbol do you believe in?
  8. What’s your inner animal/bird?

    I’m happy with Akanksha. 
  10. Who would you like to meet? (Dead/Alive) And why?
    I’d love to meet JK Rowling and talk to her about the marvellous Harry Potter.

  1. Congratulations Akanksha, well deserved! 🙂 I was pleasantly surprised to see my blog on the list, thank you so much for the nomination! However, my blog is now award free so I no longer accept awards, but do know I appreciate this from the bottom of my heart ❤ and I loved reading your facts…21 hours really?? I don't think I could do that even if I tried 😀

  2. 21 hours … dayumm 😛 I sleep 12 hours and I feel so wasted. You are great, miss 🙂

    And you started writing right from your childhood which is amazing. I was struggling then to get my spellings right 😛

    All the best Akanksha. I think it’s a well deserved award, and congrats 🙂
