Well, I certainly feel honoured to receive this award. Thank you, Amrita. It is my very first blog award! Am I supposed to put the button on my site? If so, you'll need to help me!
Thanks again. You made my day! It is a cold and damp day here in Toronto. Blessings.

OH, thank you so much, Amrita! This is such a beautiful award, with such a special meaning. I am deeply honored!
I am technically challenged, so I haven't a clue how to put this on my side bar. But I will save it to my Word program in case I learn how!

Blessings, Amrita!

Putting the award on is not too hard. You first save it on your computer then go to the layout section of your blog and paste it on the side bar.

Amrita, what fantastic awards! And you made them yourself _ you are easily as clever as The Fixer at this sort of thing!

I am very honoured to receive this garland and I always feel welcome when I come here!

Thank you.

Thanks, Amrita! I don't use Blogger for my Morning Coffee site, so the setup is a little different. But I do have a Blogger account for another blog . . . perhaps I'll display my awards there! It is http://rbcoffeetalk.blogspot.com . I'll see what I can do! Thanks!

Dear Amrita,
you are a mastermind. Creating your own award, that's really something.
I am flattered that you were even considering me, but I am not for the time being able to cope with technically challenges, and will not be able to fetch it..
A good thought, be it even undeserved , warms my tired heart.
And I love the way you are teaching about the many unknown sides of the rich Indian culture.
The other day I found myself explaining about some Indian topics with authority,-all knowledge I've picked up from being visiting your blog site.
Your government should grant you an award.
Have a rich week-end with your family.
All the best from Felisol
