Liebster Award 2017

Liebster AwardHello I just recently got nominated for the Liebster Award Thank you Bisma , A thought process , for this recognition. I am intrigued by your thought process that made you include me in this list. And yeah I am sorry Bisma I ‘ve taken too long to respond….for several reasons …1. being me the idlebrainsite …i had to live up to my name…2. I really wanted to make sincere nominations of the people whose work i had truly enjoyed and left me moved…And although Bisma you are one of those too bad i cant nominate you again or can I ? Once again thank you for the nomination 🙂

So here are my processed thoughts for those prodding questions:Let’s begin !

  1. What does your name mean?                                                 My name is idlebrain suggesting that i took up blogging to redeem my rusting brain and yeah i guess i was too lazy to really conjure up a nice one.
  2. What inspires you to blog?                                               Actually my very first blog answers that question. THE BEGINNING
  3. What is you favorite book and why ?                               There are too many The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood,  The Fountain Head by Ayn Rand, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte , The short stories of Dorris Lessing, Serendipity by Umberto Eco, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie, My name is Red by Orhan Pamuk and of course the poems of Williams Carlos Williams, Maya Angelou, A K Ramanujan,  ….in a random order , those are a few that come to my mind at once.
  • What is your favorite quote?                                                      I am too lazy to type all….but if u insist let me say Mallarme’s “To define is to destroy, To suggest is to create” something i try to achieve in my writing…
  • One thing you’d like to change about yourself?                  Not one….many…there is always room for growth….if I may equate change to growth
  • When you look at the sky, what do you feel?           It usually triggers introspection….And a thought process begins 🙂
  • What is one thing that disgusts you?                         Character assasination
  • What is your biggest weakness?                           Hmmmm….I wouldn’t use that word….I am an optimist.
  • Do you think practicing detachment is the way out?              I have tried it so many times….like a rubberband 🙂
  • What do you do when you are sad?                                          I cry it out….Seek refuge in words
  • How does solitude work for you?                                              I simply love it….I m most compatible with myself….

  1. Wow, thanks. I am first on your list?! Seriously? I will take part in this, although I don’t know how someone actually wins this competition, or everybody counts as winners? Glad someone reads my war stuff, hope it didn’t flipped your guts while reading. ;D

      1. I’m extremely good with plotting and prompts, but the quality of my grammar and vocabulary is negotiable. I thank you THEE for kind words my dear SIR. I shall tap myself on the back now.
