Five Rupees Wins An Award

Well, there you go. Some of you may know that Five Rupees was nominated in the Pakistani Blog Awards under the "Political coverage" category. Last week, they announced their winners, and lo and behold, we won in our category. They even gave us this badge to put up here.


I'm obviously flattered and honored, and grateful to both the organizers as well as Mosharraf Zaidi and Kalsoom Lakhani for nominating us months ago. Also, I am very whatever-the-opposite-of-"grateful"-is to both AKS and NB for helping me in keeping this blog constantly updated.

By the way, on a completely unrelated note, this blog is set to undergo a couple of changes in the next week or two. Stay tuned.

I have to agree with Manan -- the biggest and best change would be to get some black text on a white background.

Congrats, Ahsan!
This is proly one of the best Pakistani blogs out there, not just political but sports and other issues as well.
I might not always agree with everything that is written here or comment a lot but I surely appreciate all the effort you put up in the content.
Truly deserved!
Just a question: I know I am a few years late now but why did you guys name this blog 5 Rupees?

Ahsan said...

Thank you to all for the congrats. It's been a fun ride, made more fun by some very smart and incisive and well-informed commenters over the years.

Stevens: You know, I once tried changing the theme, and I screwed everything up, including our archives. I'm not very good with this stuff to be honest.

Jdee:

I actually don't remember anymore. I sent an email to NB, who's the one who came up with the name. As soon as he gets back to me, I'll let you know. If you still care that is.

You should be baffled by so a assortment of sites. You must ascertain regardless of whether or not this website consists of the superb reputation. I think possibly one of the most critical factors I will look at into account when I purchase wow gold from some website could possibly be the price,the pace of delivery along using the safety. Some wow gold purchasers who often purchase wow gold will know even if this website is famous, they might not article you wow gold at once. for the most part because for the fact they possess a tremendous quantity of purchasers every solo lone and day-to-day as well as they should cope possessing a tremendous quantity of orders every solo lone and every solo day. I would instead purchase from some Cheap WOW Gold internet web web pages that occur to be not so well-known but possess a superb reputation.
