Proud to be a Microsoft MVP in Client App Dev on Jan 2011

Hi Friends,

First of all Happy New Year 2011 to everybody.

Its been a long journey to the technical world. I have always tried to sharpen my knowledge as time progresses and also wanted you to know more about technology. I am very much inclined towards technology and in love with .NET products.

January 1st, 2011 is been the most eventful day in my life.  I got a mail from Microsoft, that I have been selected as Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional" in "Client Application Development". Its like a dream come true and is my biggest award of life. Its priceless.

What is MVP?

MVP is the biggest Microsoft Award to Community Champs who devote their valuable time to the Community, helping people when they need and also share the knowledge to online forums. To know more about MVP, please follow here.

Yesterday at night, after coming back home I received a mail from Microsoft, which says :

Hi Abhishek! Congratulations for this achievement! Three months ago I also went through the same happiness as I was nominated a Client App Dev MVP here in Brazil... It's really, as you said, priceless!
Well... I'll be in the MVP Summit next month... If you're there, meet you then!
