Hi, friends! If you all remember, it was during the month of September 2009 that my dear blogger friend, Paritosh had conferred the coveted Superior Scribbler Award on me. It was a prized recognition for an Islander like me from the rarely noticed far-flung Islands of Andaman & Nicobar and I have, hence, relished it to the maximum. After all, it’s not for nothing that the Great Mother Teresa said, “There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.”

That apart from making me gratefully ecstatic had left me with the crucial responsibility of passing it on to the next Five deserving bloggers, as per the rules of the Award. It was not an easy task as not only did I have the responsibility to confer the cherished recognition on the deserving candidates but also to ensure that the honor and glory of the Superior Scribbler Award is also upheld in the process.

Here are the Rules of the Award:

1.    Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to five most deserving blog friends. Check.

2.    Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award. Check.

3.    Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog and link to the original post at The Scholastic Scribe which explains The Award. Check.

4.    Each blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit the original post at The Scholastic Scribe and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who wins This Prestigious Honor. Check.

5.    Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules to his/her blog. Check.

Now, finally, after a long scrupulous scrutiny of the blogs that I’ve been following, I’m ready with my list of the deserving blogger friends.

And the Superior Scribbler Award goes to…

1. Neha Gandhi - For being so real and suave in presenting her posts throughout her vivacious blog – BREATHE and artistically believing that “breathing and expressing” go hand in hand, which is so very true about being an adorable blogger. She has fared so well in “inhaling and exhaling a lot of thoughts, love, gratitude & information”. Hence, I would relish passing on the Superior Scribbler Award to Neha Gandhi.

2. Arul Kumaran - An upbeat and promising young & enterprising management professional & blogger who excels in illustrating the multifarious intricacies of Human Resource and Marketing Management. Some surprisingly astute tips & tricks of the trade which make his rich blog – MBA Bazzar a fantastic source of knowledge and information for anyone from any walk of life. Hence, I pretty contentedly pass on the Superior Scribbler Award to Arul Kumaran.

3. Nupur - For making the RANDOMNESS of life such an enticingly addictive subject to read with some genuinely heartwarming real-life episodes presented in a classy manner which makes it a very human blog. Well, no surprises – Nupur is the next Superior Scribbler for me.

4. Sauvik Chakraverti - Finally, there’s someone who firmly talks about some genuine solutions and not barely problems. Tribals have benefited the least from the Indian state and its development policies. Worse still, their lands and livelihoods have been ruthlessly destroyed over time.” This is just the pick of the basket from the ANTIDOTE (“Libertarian Opinion from Indyeah”) wherein a daringly eloquent Sauvik Chakraverti, who is a seasoned author and journalist, blogs with a sense of carefree gumption and spontaneous concern about the multifarious burning issues that the largest democracy in the world is constantly faced with. To me, he is undoubtedly a Superior Scribbler.

5. Pankaj Sekhsaria - And last but no way the least, writer, photographer and freelance journalist, Pankaj Sekhsaria, author of 'Troubled Islands’ - Writings on the indigenous peoples and environment of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, is nobody short of a real Samaritan who has been blogging his heart out with utmost passion ATCROSSROADS for the past couple of years about the issues and concerns of the vital territory of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. A factual source of inspiration to me and many others, Pankaj Sekhsaria is a truly deserving Superior Scribbler.
