My First Liebster Blog Award

 

Liebster Award 2013 Action Wanted

I am happy that the year 2013 is ending with the Liebster Blog Award. This is the FIRST Award for the Action Wanted blog and I hope that such awards will keep pouring in the future.

To give you a little background, the Action Wanted blog was started in September 2010. This three-year old Blog is still a small family of around 15 articles. The pace is slow but each article is hand-crafted, nurtured, and cared in the same way as a director looks after his/her movie. I do not just write words in those articles but pour my efforts, feelings, experiences, observations, and emotions into it. And, the most important point is that whatever I write in my Action Wanted blog, I FOLLOW that – Be it doing regular Surya Namaskar or using Ayurveda products and promoting them.

When my Blog was nominated for this award, I was quite curious to know more about this. Here is what I am able to gather from my fellow bloggers:-

What is a Liebster Blog Award?

The Liebster Blog Award was created to recognize and/or discover (new) bloggers. “Liebster” is a German word for sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, or favorite.

Who Nominated Me?

I was nominated by my fellow blogger Namrata Kumari. I feel grateful that she thought of my blog.

What are the Rules?

  • Link back the nominator of the award (why not show some love back as well!)
  • Nominate 10 more bloggers (except the nominator) and inform them
  • Answer the questions asked by the nominator
  • Ask 10 questions from those you nominated
  • Add the award image to your site

Continuing with the custom, Namrata also asked me certain questions. Here are their answers:-

Q.1 What little do you do for your society?

Through my Action Wanted blog, I make an attempt to raise awareness among general public on social, political, and environmental issues plaguing our society like the need to take care of cows, protect forest, and eat a healthy junk-free diet. Apart from that, as an Art of Living Teacher, I take courses for children in the age group of 7-18 years.

Q.2 Hollywood or Bollywood?

Nothing specific but like to watch sci-fi movies. So, Hollywood.

Q.3 Which cartoon show was your favorite?

There are many – Dexter’s Laboratory, Duck Tales, and Scooby Doo.

Q.4 Name one movie which you can see again and again.

3 Idiots.

Q.5 One word that defines you most appropriately.

Humble.

Q.6 Who inspires you the most?

His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of The Art of Living Foundation.

Q.7 You can give up a million dollar for?

For the health and safety of my family members.

Q.8 Facebook or Twitter? Why?

Facebook. Because it reminds me of my friends’ birthdays, can accommodate more text with the added benefit of creating our own Facebook page, and is more visual in nature as compared to Twitter.

Q.9 A book that you think can change one’s life?

Ashtavakra Gita – A commentary by His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Q.10 Happiness is?

Temporary when its source is outside and permanent when you daily practice Yoga, Pranayam, and Meditation.
