Has anyone heard the song ‘God is good, all the times’? If you haven’t, here is a link to it. It’s a beautiful song.
I will edit that to ‘God is good, most of the times’ 😛 cos couple of weeks back I was thinking if I could ever pay my ode to Maniparna, how amazing would that be. I am not even kidding, it’s true.
It’s a mix of personal and blogging reason that I felt, someday before I stop blogging I should do the honor of telling her how wonderful a blogger and person she is.
Last April or May, I happened to pass by her blog and I read a post of hers with beautiful mountains and an amazing trip written for some contest. There was no looking back after that. I used to read most of her post, comment on it if my little brains came up with something. To my surprise, she started visiting my blog as well and commenting which was not common in blogging scenario. An established blogger then with 833 followers, commenting on my blog which was 2 weeks old. Till date she remains to be the most visited with highest number of comments. It’s not about visiting, commenting but then it is something to put up with the stupidity I post which needs a special mention.
She is quite a versatile blogger. There is book reviews, product reviews, contests, short-stories, poems, haiku’s, haiga’s, tanka’s, photography, travels and God knows what more. I have had the privilege of mailing her one time regarding couple of doubts that I had; she wrote me back with the complete details and I was astonished to see the level of explanation that went in. She didn’t have to do it, but glad that she did. To write on all the above mentioned topics, you need to have a knowledge database.
One of the times, I nominated her for this and she normally doesn’t do any award/nominations but I have to appreciate her gesture of writing a post. It did make me feel good, so I entrusted her with a short story next. 😛
I hope if there is an award, she gets it. She deserves it more than anyone out there. Proof : One of her posts.
