Hi Everyone! I hope you all are fine! Happy Makar Sankranti and Pongal!

Makar Sankranti is an Indian festival when you fly kites and eat sweets! Lohri is another festival celebrated and so is Pongal! So I thought that I should do the tag today! So, let’s get to it!

I was nominated by Riddhi @ Whispering Stories and Dhriti @ Tomboy Diaries. Thank you so much guys for nominating me. Thanks to Prashansa @Reader’s Alcove for creating this award.


Rules:

  • Thank the person/fellow Indian sweets’ lover who nominated you! (or whose blog you found out about this award through)
  • Answer the 5 Indian sweets-related questions and add one of your own!

    Ok, so it’s Motichoor Ladoos, Kaju Katlis and Gulab Jamuns! They are so yummy!
  2. What’s an Indian sweet you haven’t tried yet but really want to?
    Gajar Pak. I like Gajar Ka Halwa, and everyone says that Gajar Pak is like Gajar Ka Halwa only, so I think I will try it and confirm one day.
  3. Name one sweet which is traditionally made in your city/state.
    Well, I am technically from Rajasthan- and well, Ghewar and Rabri are very famous there!

My Question: Which is the most famous sweet in your area?

Riddhi Question: Have you ever tried making an Indian sweet at home? Which one?

Ok, so, I tried making Besan Ladoos one day, but I wasn’t able to make them properly.

The Favourite Book Character Tag |Original|

Hey Everyone! So here I am with another tag. I created this tag myself, hope I did a fine job. Let me know in the comments and don’t forget to participate. So, let’s get to it!


The Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you and leave a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the tag: Srishti @ The Srishti Blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Share one or more book characters you think fits into each category.
  • Tag at least 5 people.
  • Have fun!

Here are the categories:

  • The dynamic
  • The powerful one
  • The smart one
  • The intelligent one
  • Who suffered a lot but has recovered
  • The most loved
  • The most famous
  • The unique

The dynamic

Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter. In the Harry Potter series, Neville begins as a frightened, awkward student. As he is shaped by conflicts with his friends and with the antagonists during the plot, his character changes into a brave young man, willing to fight for what he believes is right at the end of the series.


The powerful one

One Above All from Marvel Comics. One Above All is the most powerful of the Celestials. He was mistaken for another God of Marvel Comics (The One-Above-All) because both share the same name.


The smart one

Mel from Out of My Mind. Read this one if none of the others is on my list! It’s a middle grade, but it works for all ages. Mel cannot walk or talk, but she has a photographic memory and is such a genius! Yet because of her disabilities, she gets overlooked all the time. She has so much to say and share, but everyone sees her as the mute, unable to help herself girl. The game changes throughout the book, but can people keep up with her and change their perception of her? That is the question. Such a good read.


The intelligent one

Matilda. Ah, my favourite little child genius! She was incredibly smart but not in a home that supported her wit and knowledge. I love this story far too much, and it’s a great one to grow up with.


Who suffered a lot but has recovered

Nico from the Percy Jackson Series. I can only say that Nico went through a lot and being the son of Hades, he had to go through it all alone. He lost his sister and mother, and was stuck in the Lotus Hotel and Casino for so many years! He is brave and he suffered a lot but he at least got the person he deserved.


The most loved

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter Series. Not only was she smart, self-possessed, tough, and well, pretty much always better than Harry and Ron in every way, she never got all self-pitying and boring like they did.


The most famous

Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Lizzy is not only her father’s favourite child but the reading public’s favourite child in the mighty family of Austen heroines. Smart, irreverent, independent-minded (something rather extraordinary for her time), and blessed with “a lively, playful disposition, which delighted in anything ridiculous,” she never fails to win me over.


The unique

Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter. Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was the headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was a very wise and powerful wizard who almost every time maintained his serene composure hardly displaying intense emotions. He was a true genius who had genius in knowing, thinking, planning, speaking and almost everything! He carried along with him an aura of positivism, compassion, love and wisdom. Many times he was himself amused by his intelligence. He knew pretty much of everything and understood people and their nature. But this man who knew the personal lives of so many people hardly spoke about his personal life and emotions to anyone- not even to his favourite student, Harry.
