Me and My Blog gets an award!!

I was surprised to get a comment on my previous post "Do You Know?" saying that I was awarded the "Awe Some Guy Blogger" award.
The rules are simple. Adavait has given me this award. I am sure he did like my blog (else why will he award me?? ). Now it's my turn to select 5 more bloggers. These five folks are supposed to award another five guys this award and link to me. As simple as that.Read on for who my 5 are.

Before I go on with my list of Awesome bloggers(I will have five guys and five girls), let me put my views on this whole awarding stuff.
i) It will give me an opportunity to thank the fellow bloggers whose blog I really appreciate.
ii) It lets other's know what I am reading and what I enjoy reading.
iii) A way to assess my blog reading pattern. I was surprised by the geographic and ethnic pattern of my blog reading.

It was difficult to choose five from so many blogs I read. Here's my criteria for selection:
i) No Community/Group blogs.
ii) Blogs that I read and can identify with the bloggers.
iii) Blogs that I read without fail, but rarely comment on.

So here goes my list:
Awesome Guys:
Himanshu Sheth: Thoughts Prevail (A good friend)
Prashant : Know Prashant (My alter ego)
Tanay Behra: Remain Connected (Creative)
Raymon Chen: The Old New Thing (Techie, One blog i never commented but read all posts in the last 2months)
Thomas: Blogvaria (Short, Regular and very useful posts)

Rocking Gals:
Annie: Buttermilk Clouds , BlogU (If ever, I am in US I would love to visit her and try her cuisines,better known for her blogger University)
Lavanya: All things Considered (Energetic)
Sara: iLoveCode (Techie...)
rads: kowthas (old) (Land of Origin!)
Dhivya: Coffee and Conversations (Waiting to read her next post!!)

Now all the ten folks above, please nominate your 5 or 10 awe some bloggers!
