The Sunshine Award

The Sunshine Award is a lovely sunny flower that bloggers give to other “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.
I was tagged for this lovely award by Jennifer Faye, a dear friend and a fabulous author published by HMB. Check out her post here.  
Now, for those tagged onward in this post, the rules of the ‘The Sunshine Award’ are as follows. They are really simple:
(1)     Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2)     Do the Q&A below.
(3)     Pass on the award to 10 – 12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.
Rule 1. Many thanks, Jennifer. I'm guilty of being tardy, I must say extremely tardy in putting up this post. Let me just say I have an excuse that I was working to meet the deadline on my second book for HMB and the days just flew past! I'm delighted you thought of me.
Rule 2. Q&A

Favourite Colour: 
Peach. It isn't a coincidence that when I first met my husband I was wearing a peach Punjabi suit. I always have one or two outfits in this lovely colour. And just look at this gorgeous peach rose.
Also pink and green lavender are also favourites closely following peach :)

Favourite Animal: 
I'm not a pet keeper, though I like goldfishes flitting in their bowls. For just looking, I like the majestic leos. ah, what an inspiration for a shifter :)
Favourite Number:
 4 and 6. Six because I'm somewhat of a believer in numerology and 4 is a quirk. Rose has four letters and 4 was the sumtotal of my roll number when I topped in Physiology in first year medical, which are reasons of sorts.

Favourite Non-alcoholic Drink:
I'm a tea person. Can't get any task started before stoking up on it :) 

Facebook or Twitter:
I'm maybe slightly inclined towards twitter. It's rather easier for a reserved person like me lol. That said, I do love chatting and meeting new people on both. FB messages are wonderfully convenient in keeping in touch with regard to the time difference across the world.

Your Passion: 
My family and my writing. Which is why I'm constantly at war which to devote my time to! *grin* but yes both are very fulfilling.

Giving or Getting Presents:
Who doesn't love to get presents? Do I sound greedy? Let me redeem myself by adding I don't go for expensive presents. Just thoughtful ones, even if it is my favourite sweet ras malai brought by hubby.

Giving is wonderful as well especially when I get to see the surprise on kids' faces.

Favourite Day:
Wednesday. Surprised? Well, midweek you get into the flow and I think more productive.

Favourite Flower: 
Roses. Especially peach roses. Chrysanthemums are a close second.

So this is about me and now longing to hear from the people I am passing this award to, who are:

Adite Banerjie

Aimee Duffy
Carmen Falcone
Hema Dhawan
Jennifer Drogell
Julia Broadbooks

Maria Perry Mohan

Mary Middleton

  1. Peach is such a romantic colour and good in all seasons. My favourite colour is maroon which looks horrible in our Indian summer. I love tea too, Ruchita, that's more we have in common. Thank you for tagging me. Will get to work on my post in a day or two.

    1. Maroon is definitely not summery but you can wear it in winter with panache :) can't do without tea, love coffee too, but not that much. Looking forward to your post!

  2. Never knew about this. Anyway, congratulations!

    1. Hi Brendan, nice to see you here. Guess it's a niche thing among the blogging authors so probably that's why you didn't hear about it. Thanks for your wishes!

  3. Brilliant post Ruchita! Thanks for tagging me, I'll get my post done soon :-)

  4. Congratulations on the award. Loved reading all about you.

    All the best!

  5. Loved your answers. Was so nice getting to learn more about you. :-)

    1. Thanks a whole lot for the tag, Jennifer.

  6. My post is ready, here it is.
