Madonna With the Milk Soup, 1510, Gerard David 

Aromatic polyphagia
Conviviality that spreads
With tender love and warmness
Altruistic essence
Hunger cedes hands down
Beaming faces
Conjuring print
Moist eyes

That nodding of hearts
Grand intertwining of souls
A tight embrace

Love cradles the ship
Time hurries as love flowers
A tighter embrace

Life’s pages gets loved
Moments turn into memories
A tightest embrace

Introduction: It is that time of the year when there is too much holiday cheer and festive mood. Right from the start of December till commencement of the new year, the month long extravaganza brings life and heart into the lives of many people through lots of Weddings, Christmas Eve and New Year Eve.

And since Christmas Eve is around the corner, The Indiblogeshwaris decided to spread some cheer through the secret elves and what better way then reviewing a blog! So, I as the secret blog elf is reviewing the blog Dreams and Drama co-authored by Arpita and Swarnali - Friends by chance and Sisters by choice. Also, Swarnali writes at Half Baked Voices too.

Review: The first thing that I liked is the simple presentation of the blog through its template which is good on eyes, clean, crisp and beautiful and also the user friendliness in terms of navigation. The blog is up since September, 2011, with 140 posts and more than 1 lac visitors have graced the blog. This shows the writing prowess that both the girls possess. 

The blog is all about various stories told through the medium of many contests held at various forums and book and website reviews. With many accolades coming their way in the form of winning contests, it affirms the writing skills along with providing some great content for the reader. 

It is extremely difficult to find one good post out of so many beautiful posts that I suggest reading each and every post. What did catch my attention is the approach and attitude that both the authors display while writing any posts which is highly commendable. 

Few things which I would like to bring to the notice is that there is no social media tabs on the blog which is highly important in the world of bloggers, to promote their posts and get noticed. Also it will be better if all the tags or labels that you write on are displayed for allowing the readers to understand on the kind of topics you write. 

Verdict: Dreams and Drama is where dreams light up and real life drama unfolds in the posts.
