Spreading the Cheer

Wow , what a beginning to the day. I was declared as a Blogger Friend by Rads. And then by Aparna.

I am touched ladies.

Here's my list of Blogger friends. They are super bloggers themselves, but above all, they're friends , whom I didn't know before, may have never met, got to know mainly through blogging and who are the epitome of kindness.


In no particular order


Hang - my Chinese blogger friend who writes a nice English blog and is hugely open minded.


Preeti - she doles out the "bubblegums" and "candies" in bagfuls, that I am now addicted to, along with a few hundred others


Reva - the best sense of humour in blogosphere


Jonna - the Swede who writes a superb blog on China from Suzhou


Mark - the Yank, ditto, ditto from Xian


Richard - the most revered laowai blogger from Beijing


Stephanie - Ok Kanmuri, as she prefers, who writes the best researched posts that bring Japan to life even if you haven't been there


le embrouille blogueur - that's a joke ; he's most "un embrouille"; writes beautifully, and has the kindest comments


Adesh - whom everybody will declare as a friend, the most supportive blogger, very well read, passionate about what he writes, and does so much for fellow bloggers


Sandip - the first blogger I knew, who's been blogging for years and continues to thrill, although he's getting lazy.


Chris - the Canadian, who reinforced that even today, in business, there can be a heart.


And then of course


Aparna - the most "touching" of bloggers , who can bring a lump in the throat with a few words


Rads - the most polite and caring of bloggers, who has a nice comment even in your most boring of posts, while her posts are uniformly first rate.


Thanks Aparna and Rads, once again, for your kindness.


And to all ye blogger friends - Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum

Ramesh, thank you very much for taking me as one of your blogger friends. It's great to make new friends through blogging. I like your writing and would be happy to learn more about India from you. Learning about coder in India in comparison with China's migrant workers is a great start.

Mark said...

Thanks a lot, Ramesh.

Really appreciate all the thoughtful comments you're leaving on my blog.

Keep things going strong over here. Like Hang said, I'm painfully ignorant of India. Hearing things from an Indian perspective is really enlightening to me.

Must check out.
