This is gonna be BIG – ready for the surprise?

“…Your never know what the tide is going to bring..”, I never quite realized the significance of this quote by Tom Hanks in Castaway. Not until last month. My move to India came with a flurry of surprises – some expected and some quite unexpected.

One of the ones that I never expected was I coming 2nd in the list of bloggers for Clear Admit's Best of Blogging Awards. You know whats more - I also won in two categories "Best Essay Advice" & "Best Interview Advice" - talk about a whole cherry farm on the cake!!

I’m really honored and all I can manage now is two words of gratitude for your readership – Thank You! I also thank the judges and all the MBA bloggers for voting my blog and for your love! My hearty congratulations for a well deserved top spot to Dream Chaser and Orlando.

There are some other well deserved winners in my books – Madalogue and Rocky for the fantastic content, Steve for entertaining us all with his god gifted humor, Xlick, The Dreamer, and Braveheart for their awesome posts! Congratulations to all of you; I’m simply proud of being among such brilliant individuals.

Now you might be thinking what a lazy ass I am for taking so long to even acknowledge such an honor! I think I have a valid reason, and that brings me to the BIG news that I’ve been itching to share with you all for the past couple of weeks. So without further ado here it is –

I’m Getting Married to my sweet heart in two weeks! Yes its true and its finally happening. The talks started as soon as I touched the Indian soil and it took exactly 2 weeks to decide that the marriage will be before I fly off to Barcelona. The big day is on the 8th of June, 2010 in Mumbai and I’m having a reception party on the 13th of June. The past few weeks have been like running around as if my tail was on fire; and that my friends is the reason for this long due post!

Needless to say I am overjoyed and enjoying every minute of these bustling days and believe me it’s a lot of work. But I’ll try my best to keep you all updated on this roller coaster ride which just took off!
