On e-friends, proximity and award!

There has been mixed opinions on e-friendship. Some feel that online friends will never be genuine since they portray a completely different aspect of their characters when hiding behind an ID; in effect giving rise to deceptions. Some say that internet friendships helps introverts find an outlet. Some thrive on the net. No, make that many. Some have gained life partners over the web and some have lost their lives too, trusting their e-friends. E-friendship is a debatable topic.
It is true that I am personally quite wary of people I bump on the net. Since I cannot have an eye contact with them and cant examine their body language, I am not sure of what lurks behind those words that have been typed. I guess with age, we are mature enough to be careful and guess the intentions of a stranger but its the young teenagers and adolescents who are more prone to get misled.
An yet, ironically, I have found some gem of people through the net. One of them is Monika.
So, all I can say, Monika, is a big Thanks from the bottom of my heart cos you are one of the many who made me believe that net friends are genuine and for keeps! Thanks for this award.

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness
in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These
kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or
self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut,
even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these
writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and
include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

And now, time to pass it on. I pass on the award to
Couch Papaya
Yes, I have taken the liberty to add 1 more. ( I am known for writing extra from my childhood days ;) I used up maximum supplementary sheets, bindaas!)

These are some of the people I met on the net and who have become good friends offline too!
Thanks dear friends for restoring my faith! Time to cut the ribbons and propogate friendship!


E mere Vatan ke Logon

Got this through the mail and I wanted to keep reminding myself that there are people who sacrificed their life for our sake and their sacrifice should not go waste. We need a change and badly at that!

My salute to these brave soldiers
