A Vote of Thanks: A Potpourri of Vestiges hits the 200K counter


I am delighted to share with you that today my movie blog A Potpourri of Vestiges has hit the 200K mark. I would like to start by thanking the Almighty. I would also like  to extend my sincerest gratitude to all my readers and friends who have been instrumental in making the blog reach this far. 

What had started out as a mere means of self-indulgence has today blossomed in something significantly promising. A Potpourri of Vestiges has finally started to fulfill its true purpose, that of serving International Cinema. Today,  I am fortunate to get zealous readers from all the nooks and corners of the globe who, like me, are keen to fathom the depths of Cinema, layer by layer. 

As I continue this amazing journey, I would like to offer my deepest gratitude to all those who have helped made it a reality: the fellow bloggers/cineastes at various blogging/social networking platforms, especially IndiBlogger, theLAMBPagalguy, WriteUpCafe, Facebook, and Twitter.

Here I would like to make a special mention of a few fellow bloggers who have been a constant source of inspiration for me and have been kind enough to offer their helping hand as and when I have needed it: 


1). Jugu Abraham (MOVIES THAT MAKE YOU THINK)

2). Bonjour Tristesse (BONJOUR TRISTESSE)

3). Subhorup Dasgupta (Subho's Jejune Diet)

4). Mahesh Iyer (meshuforyou)

5). Haricharan Pudipeddi (Movie Roundup)

6). Arun Kumar (Passion for Movies)

7). Eric Hillis (THE MOVIE WAFFLER)

8). Akshy (Akshy's Multiplex)

9). Raghav Modi (Ticker Talks Film)

10). Shantanu (U, Me and Films)

11). Alex Jowski (Alex Jowski Movie Reviews)
