Tangy Tuesday Picks....Me


It seemed like any other rainy day.

Leaving for work 2 hours before time (contingency planning for non availability of rickshaws and late running trains), getting drenched in the rain which cant decide which direction it wants to pour from, wadding through waist deep water, getting splashed on by a truck and coming back home after an hour, completely drenched with the umbrella turned upside down.

Yeah seemed like just any other rainy day.

But an email changed it all. Kya email? An email which proclaimed "Your post has been picked for our Tangy Tuesdays "

My initial reaction was..ya u guessed it right...Fainting!

My second reaction was....screaming Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

I finally realised I hadn't checked the email! Well, this is what it said:

Congratulations! Your post has been selected by BlogAdda as one of the top posts for this week's 'Tangy Tuesday Picks'.

BlogAdda has started 'Tangy Tuesdays' and 'Spicy Saturdays' where BlogAdda picks up good posts from Indian blogosphere and serves it to the readers on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This way, good posts are acknowledged and readers get to read quality content. This is also an opportunity for everyone to interact even more in fruitful discussions.

In case you would like to inform your users about your post being selected as "
BlogAdda's Tangy Tuesday Pick", we have attached an image that you can use it on your post.

Yup, yup, yup my blog post being picked up by BlogAdda for Tangy Tuesday picks!
Cant believe my eyes! And the best part is that I am not even a member of BlogAdda. My brother seems to think that word of mouth got my blog post there....I, as usual have no clue..too numb to even think!

This is what the post intro says:

Who : Shanu
What : Based on a True Story (2)
Tangy : The opening line of the post says ‘Most Embarrassing moment of my life’ . This line says it all about the humorous post by Shanu :) . In our earlier picks we had a similar post by Vimmu . Both these posts are a must read ones :D .

Excuse me while I faint again!
