World Peace Day AWARDS :)


Aaarti gave me Blogging Friends Forever award and now I get an opportunity to show my appreciation to some of the posts that made me feel there's still some hope. Since we are going through Times Of Intolerance, I would like to take the liberty to give it to those who have written strong and effective posts on this issue. What better way to end intolerance than becoming friends?
So, I would like give the Blogging Friends Forever award to bloggers who have spoken for PEACE.



I have described their Award Winning Posts the way our News Channels and Newspapers would have described them. It's meant to be funny.
The names are direct links to the awarded post.

So on the World Peace Day, BFF Award goes to (in random order)

Pinku who claims her God is the strongest :O
JottingsandMusings who is quite okay if you consider your God superior to hers!
phoenixritu for believing that God has his own agenda.
Hemanth for his religious vocabulary.
Chandni for suggesting we issue a fatwa if we are bored :)
1conoclast for being a half Muslim with a mission!
Yaamyn who wonders if terrorists are a Muslim copyright.
Roop who wants to know if the terrorists are winning!
Kislay who does not like being told that he doesn't look like a typical Bihari!
Nita for saying such stereotyping is genetically inbuilt is humans :)
Corinne for letting us know it is World Peace Day today, 21st September.
Mampi for sanity's sake!

I know there are many more such posts. So if you find a post that gives you hope in these intolerant times, please do leave a link in the comments.

Ajit said...

@ indian Home maker:
Somehow, i believe that we need to get these articles a wider audience.
Even if it makes a difference to one person out there, then the attempt would be worthwhile.
:)

Indian Home Maker said...

@Ajit Exactly my thought! That is why I put them together: Do add more links- if we can make a difference to ONE person, it will be worthwhile.
