Liebster Award

Today - January 26th is the Republic Day in INDIA. In India, Republic Day honours the date on which the Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950.

The main Republic Day celebration is held in the national capital, New Delhi, at the Rajpath before the President of India. On this day, ceremonious parades take place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India.

Another important part of the Republic Day celebrations is that various awards are given away to the Indians honouring their service and exceptional achievements/service in all fields of activities/disciplines, such as Art, Literature and Education, Sports, Medicine, Social Work, Science and Engineering, Public Affairs, Civil Service, Trade and Industry etc.

What a good day to share that I have received the LIEBSTER AWARD from Sathya Priya of Thanks a lot Sathya!!!!!

Now this is the first time I am hearing about this award and I did a bot of research to find out what is this all about and how it started. Well I couldn't get the exact answer to the second question as to how it started since I lost my patience searching for the answers. :-) Anyways the earliest I could find was in 2010. Now LIEBSTER is a german word meaning "Dearest". So obviously this system should have started in Germany.

Anyways the rules have changed over time. The current rules when I received this award is that:

1) This is an award passed on to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. A means to identify new blogs and create more friends.
2) Thank the blogger who have passed on this award to you.
3) Answer the questions that the blogger has posted for you.
4) Identify some other new bloggers to whom you would like to pass on this award.
