Challenges and Awards

Premio Dardos Award

Thank you Mon for nominating me for this award! The Premio Dardos is given from one blogger to another, in recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values that are transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. So that makes me feel great, and yes, I’m choosing to believe it is true, so there!

The rules are pretty standard


When you accept the award, post it on your blog along with the name of the person who nominated you and put a link to their blog.
Include the image of the award on your blog.
Write 7 facts about yourself.
Pass it on to 15 other bloggers, linking to their blogs and let them know. I won’t be doing 15 nominations. I would have done none, but that isn’t fair to the spirit of this award, meaningless as it may seem to many. I think the value of anything is the value you choose to attach to it, but that’s just me.

7even facts……

1. I rarely read a book twice

2. I quote obscure lines and couplets to people who have no idea what I’m talking about

3. A tee and boxers were my favourite home attire

4. I can’t walk out of the house with my toes showing, it’s just not done

5. I had three imaginary friends growing up. Thing was I knew they were imaginary and never talked about them to anyone

6. I’m mostly self-taught in all I do, from home repair to surgery

7. I can hardly ever find myself in a position to generalize anything to 100%.

That’s about it. I hope some of you do enjoy the award. If not, then I hope you enjoy the fact that I enjoy your blogs. 🙂


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
