Adarsh, this is incredible, this is the exact same quote one of my team members sent me in the early days when I was struggling with India Helps and with victims who were taking undue advantage of our effort to help...

It will be suicidal 2 go against the tide.. so 'Humour' it should be.. though tht means um out of contention with only 2 posts 2 match d criteria:(

Bt in case it is not chosen, i'll go with "Autobiographical/personal" as the alternative category.

Nd yeah congrats Kiran.. guys read my post on the contest @ http://vipulgrover.blogspot.com/2009/06/indiblogger-of-month.html

(I can't miss a grand chance of cheap self-promotion;)

Thanks Vipul and Congrats to you too! Just a small correction to your post, IH is not a NGO, its just a blog that was set up to help 26/11 victims and grew into a movement...

I'm a huge respecter of Indiahelps as well as huge fan of ThirtySixandCounting.Smile Congrats Kiran!

Renee, thanks for the last competition, I have learned so much about the good and great work people are doing. I will never forget the picture of the child's hands in the old person's hands (the orphanage to old age home trip)...

And lot of others. Everyday I would share with my family some of the Great Work that folks are doing.

I think humour is a good follow-up to social causes, we need a break from the serious..., 

Would it be good if we could vote "post- wise" and not blog wise and vote for more than one person? It would help the indecisive ones like myself. A little thumbs-up style feature?Satya

am i doing blogwhoring here? dunno a little bit about my page -

Chronicwriter is the name of my name.  Chronicwriter is the name of my blog name too. Chronicwriter is the first blogger in the world. Chronicwriter is a humor blogger. Chronicwriter was born on his birthday. Chronicwriter is a complete humor man-since 1982.

Chronicwriter used to conduct Top-secret nuclear experiments for exposing an undisclosed North eastern Antartican province and was on the verge of Vasectomizing a female python when he decided to focus on his blog instead.

Blogwhoring?! Laughing

Hemal Shah

what does that mean?

Chriz

blog whoring is nothing but promoting your own blog url in many forums irrespective of what the topic is all about.

This present discussion was on choosing the right topic. I tried to talk about it and slowly i inserted my blog link too with an intention to make people read my page. This is blogwhoring. (Nothing unethical about it anyways)

I have recommended 'Public Health' issues or 'Education' issues. Regulatory issues are important.

 

Congrats Kiran. Congrats to all the nominees of April 2009 Award for best blog on Social Causes. All have their unique appeal.

Regarding the category, let there be fun after the serious category of the previous month.
