I came back to my world after a long time and what comes as a surprise is the Liebstar Awards. I am nominated for this by Zeba Noor who is an ardent follower of my Confessions of an Immigrant series. Thankyou so much love for nominating me for this.
This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It has German origins – the word “liebster
” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend. It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people. It is said that the Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere.
Other awards are a part of the whole “meme“. These include “One Lovely Blog Award”, the “Sunshine Blog Award” and the “Versatile Writer Award”. (source Zeba Noor

Thankyou so much Zeba Noor for this amazing nomination 🙂
As per the rules I will answer the questions one by one:
Why did you choose your blog’s current name?
The name Raga is my pen name and when I started the blog on wordpress I thought of this name and it sounded so perfect : Raga’s Voice where Raga is related to Raag in music and Voice is the voice that is from someone’s heart so Raga’s voice is a musical voice of a girl who writes from her heart and wants to share her thoughs with everyone.
What are your blogging aims till the end of 2017?
When the year started I had a lot of aims for the blog as I wanted to do some blogging marathons but after shifting to Canada, things changed and I started with Confessions of an Immigrant series so I would like to finish the Canada chapter by the end of 2017.
If you were asked to get a weird/unusual piercing on your body, where would you get pierced and (optional) why?
I hate piercings as it gives you a lot of pain. My friend had one piercing on her nose so I could guess how much it pains. But if I ever thought of doing so by mistake then I would try it on my nose only.
If you find Rs. 10,000 in a park, what would you do?
Well, first of all I will look around here and there is someone who is looking for it. If not, then I will go to the nearest police station and hand it over to the police.
What is the first thing you do in the morning and why?
This wierd but most of us do it. I switch off the my phone alarm and check the latest updates on my phone.
There is a flood warning and you’re stuck inside with no power. How will you pass the time?
Seriously speaking, my imagination ends here. I have no clue to what I shall do in that situation.
If you could have a super power, what it would be and why?
I would love to be invisible because I don’t want to be seen and found. I want to see others and know what they think about each other behind their backs.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever eaten while traveling?
The basic chips, snacks, mom’s mithi rotis.
How is your handwriting according to you?
According to me, I don;t have a good handwriting when I write very fast but when I am decorating it, then its appreciable.
