I am Microsoft SharePoint Server MVP – 2011

Hello Everybody,

Friday, 1st July had a sweet surprise in store for me. I received an email from Microsoft stating that I have been awarded as the SharePoint Server MVP for 2011. Frankly speaking I couldn’t believe that I was the intended recipient of the email. But, after going through the email compltely (more than couple of times) I confirmed that it indeed was targeted for me.


I would admit that I did dream of becoming an MVP and this was very much like a dream come true. I really feel very honored and humbled on being part of the elite group of expert people around the world.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who have directly or indirectly contributed in this achievement.


Thank You Microsoft!!!
