A Small Recognition - A Stepping Stone


Photobucket

Confidence grows with encouragement and recognition.

A memorable event in my life happened a week back and thought of sharing my happiness with my little blog and my buddy readers.

A popular tamil television channel Star Vijay had designed a program called "Sigaram Thotta Pengal"(Translates to Woman who have reached heights) as part of their Women's day celebration recently.

They honored women of great caliber from 13 different categories such as Medicine, Entrepreneurship, Social service, Cookery etc..

Each of such award holders were asked to identify and introduce one youngster from the next generation who is coming up in their field.

Mrs.Mallika Badrinath the well renowned chef in South India got honored with an award for her excellence in culinary skills and she in turn announced me as the "future chef" :)

I was literally in cloud 9 when I got a call from Vijay tv informing the news, but then I also felt so responsible when it was about her belief in me coming up in the field.

I would like to take the chance to thank few people this day. My first heart felt thanks would go to my parents, especially my mom for teaching me how good food would taste and how to make them as well. It is she who introduced me to the kitchen and has encouraged me throughout so far. Thank you so much Amma :) Love you.

My second thanks would go to Mrs. Mallika Badrinath for have believed and felt the talent in me :) If not for her this recognition is not possible. Thank you mam :)

My third gratitude is for Star Vijay for planning such a beautiful event and creating a lovely category to introduce youngsters and encourage them through this. Hats off to the creative channel :)

My fourth thanks would be for my hubby and new family for encouraging me to go on with what I like to do :) Hugs to you all.

My last thanks is for you all, my readers who have constantly sent mails, written comments and liked my recipes and presentation. Your encouragement was the only reason I could keep my work going always :) Thank you all :)

The recognition has given me a lot more of interest to climb further steps. I would definitely work hard for it and hope I reach the hill some day with all your support and prayers :)


The grand award function happened on 4th of March 2012 at Besant Nagar Beach between 6PM to 9PM and the program got telecasted on 11th of March from 2.30PM onwards.

I don't understand this language, so I forwarded to the part where you enter.
Congratulations. Truly a moment of pride, no matter how small the recognition.
Which I don't know why you called it 'small' in the first place ... you were crowned in front of so many people & your solo interview appeared on TV!!! And now you're on YouTube and you're so popular ... that's big!
