The Proximity Awards!

Yeh Bolly-bloggers ke dosti!

I found Memsaab's post this morning and found it utterly charming and happy-inducing especially its snowing a bit here in Vancouver. I completely love the idea of these awards, over these past few months since I started this blog, we've all become Bolly-friends! Though eight great blogs were hard to think of, lol I don't wanna offend anyone by leaving them out but we're all good mates now!

“This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

Memsaab, I adore all the Shammi posts which made me run out of class to go to the video shop which is jsut one street down from my college! And through Memsaab's great reviews, I realized I watch waaaaaaaaaayyy too many movies, especially during the ages of 7-11 up to now! Memsaab's trivia posts always make me do a hmm invisible beard scratching moment, and thanks memsaab for putting up with my inane comments on your blog!

Post Punk Cinema Club, one of the first blogs I happened upon, I love the new Anil-pyar which I obviously had a lot to do with! PPCC's reviews always give me new points that I never think of, in movies like the whole Husband-is-God in RNBJ today. Ppcc has shaped my filmi journalism career now by making me view movies with a critical eye!

Beth, the resident celebrity of the Masala Pradesh, I love the earlier Akshaye-pyar reviews which made me swoon and wonder about his receding hairline and hair-plugs! The lunchtime polls are always such fun, and Beth's adventures with King Khan make me wanna search Vancouver for one myself!

Bollyviewer, one of the funniest blogs around, the screen caps are hilarious and always make me snort aloud with laughter during my journalism classes! Now that I'm 18, I'm sure i can vote in a ton of filmi polls now and we must meet up we're in the same rainy and snowy country!!

Filmi Girl, the best podcaster and Helen-lover around! Her update of filmi news is great and I have to credit you Filmi Girl for introducing me to OP Ralhan and your screencaps are gigantically brilliant!

, I love this blog as ajnabi's reviews have such fun and spunk to them, which makes me laugh aloud and nod along all the time, and a never-ending pyar for Shahid!

Todd at Die,Danger,Die,Die,Kill and Teleport City, the funniest blog which reignited my love for Feroz Khan and Dara Singh, who I had suppressed many memories of watching Dara doing crotch-locks. His various reviews from all over the world made me appreciate the great battles of Dara versus a dinosaur/ape/lizard/frog?!!

Shweta, great insightful reviews that make me laugh and often influence whether I'll trapse many buses to seeing the big movies!

Hope you all like the awards given, anyone not mentioned you may receive a Masala Pradesh badge of "Good Citizen-ness" and although I haven't met all of you, I'm sure due to the great planning of Shweta and Beth we'll all meet at the meetup in NY!
