Why I Don't Accept Liebster Award ?

Why I Don't Accept Liebster Award ?

Liebster I searched is a German word which means beloved,dearest,sweetheart,etc which here in blogosphere indicates the blog you loved the most or the loved blog. I am lucky that so many blogger friend have nominated both of my blogs several times for this award the recent one by Anusree Burman  but I haven't accepted any. I am thankful to all of them for considering my blogs to bestow their love.

Since I am not accepting these nominations people may consider me rude or an asocial person who not wants any such interactions but I have some reasons for that which I think I should write to clarify my stand. Here are my reasons for declining liebster award :
  • Love should be unconditional but here so much conditions imposed to love a blog, some blogger only fulfill the condition to nominate at least 5 posts without actually liking that blog as I have hardly seen them visiting the blog they have nominated. There is no deal in love.
  • Why it's obligatory to answer 11 questions and than frame 11 questions for others, if you love a blog and read it regularly you could by default understand many things about that blogger. 
  • Display Liebster batch on your blog which is easily down-loadable from Google images that means you need not do anything to earn it like writing a post,a poem,etc. 
  • Copy pasting rules and then copy pasting comments to each blog you nominated what one learns from it? What's the use of this process? It would be better to send our blogs to liebster blog so that they display them there and ask other blogger to vote for them for their content. Each month then give that blogger the liebster award which received the highest number of votes. This could encourage to be better so to be voted for that award.
  • Limitation that you could nominate the blogger with less than 200 followers. What if we love a blog having more than 200 followers?
In the end I should emphasis on the point that it should not be a default award for the sake of a time pass activity but should be prestigious award you have earned with your work. But I am again thankful to all those who love my blogs by nominating me but I am sorry not to accept them for the reasons mentioned above.


  1. It's cool Cifar.. No hard feelings.. we all have our reasons and its totally justified.. Though I might add I do visit your blog. :P :)

    1. I know you visits my blog but I have seen such bloggers

  2. I agree to what you said above.
    A thoughtful one.

  3. Interesting. But I think love can never be unconditional. You're making an impossible demand :)

  4. So true!
    I had written something on it about 2yrs back:

  5. Now that's a different take on the award. I can understand your points. I guess it helps to promote unknown bloggers to a greater population.

  6. Some valid points, Cifar. Congrats for your Awards. Getting nominated means a lot :)
    Many people like me are yet to accept their awards owing to the process we have to follow. We are all hard-pressed for time. Some day, I hope to accept mine :)

  7. Well expressed your point about awards, but love is rarely unconditional... You're welcome to my blog to contribute a thought on this link.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
