A Tag

1. You must post the rules.

2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post & then create 11 new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.

3. Tag 11 people and link to them on your post.

4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

So here are the 11 questions that Nancy of Refelctions has tagged me with

1.) If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

It would be definitely something to do with making people happy , to take away their pains and make them happy and content , at least for a while… please pardon me for sounding like the finalist of Ms. Universe.. but I really really meant it.. :)

2.) What was your favourite childhood television program?

Hey I remember those Sundays, for which we used to wait patiently through out the week, and on Sundays starting 9.00 am there were so many programs, I don’t know whether any one remembers but there was a serial called ‘kachi dhoop’ starring Bhagyashree, and many other kids and I used to love it…and yes I used to wait for the ‘Chitrahaar’ on Wednesday and Friday’s 8.PM,… see how much I loved it.. I still remember the timings..

3.) Have / had any celebrity crushes ?

I do not know whether any of you remembers, but there was a time in the 80’s (ooh.. there I gave it out) when ‘Govinda’ was a rage, he acted in so many films , I was a huge fan of his, If you can call it a crush..that is…

4.) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I am so fascinated by the view of the alps and the green green pastures and picturesque landscape, I think I can give my two feet to get there and spend a lit’l me time… vow.. what a thought…’Switzerland’ :)

5.) Name 1 thing you miss about being a child.

The only thing I miss about being a child is the house where I lived in kerala for the first 5 years of my life, this house was surrounded by nature’s bounty and there were acres of paddy field stretching out and then there was a Railway line.. as you must have seen in many of my posts it is one recurring scene .. so I miss that place.. very badly..

6.) Name the one comic/book character that you loved the most and why?

I used to read a lot of comics and I liked all of them, especially ‘Archies’ and ‘Phantom’, I was a big fan of ‘phantom’, every time I read a phantom comic, I hoped to see the face of Phantom,..but I never came across any issue giving out this.. has any of you come across such an issue and is that comic available nowadays.. ?

7.) What is the one thing that you are dying to try but haven’t had a chance to do so yet ?

It is to go travelling on my own , may be to some pictersque villge , may be in kerala, may be somewhere else, just taking in the natural beauty, watching the birds, the flowers, the leaves , the trees .. just the thought of it gives me so much pleasure.. and may be reading an interesting book sitting under a ‘Gulmohur’ or ‘rose apple’ tree..

8.) Do you have a role model – someone you want to emulate? Whom do you admire the most?

All the women who are balancing life so beautifully, sometimes failing , sometimes winning and sometimes standing up admirably are my role models.

9.) What do others make of you?

I think people who know me well knows me as a straight forward person, simple and down to earth , I am quite friendly and sometimes I can make others laugh too, and yes sometimes the ‘being straightforward’, lands me in a soup too….

10.) Have you ever gotten into a fight or punched someone ?

Oh.. yes.. very much , the earlier apartment where we were living was a kind of hell, there was something or the other happening every day, bad enough situations sparking off arguments and in one such argument I really wanted to punch the guy I was talking to .. but then I could not (of course I feared being punched back).. well…

11.) For Girls – If you woke up tomorrow to find out you are Brad Pitt, what would be the first thing you’d say upon looking in the mirror???

I would go find Angy .. and rest is any body’s guess ;)

And as usual due to lack of enough blogger friends I tag the following though it might not make a list of 11 people


P.S: Sooorrrryy.... guys as I am a lazy goose I have not created 11 new questions, all of you are free to do it and the lazy one's carry on  with the same questions ;)  after all, rules are made to be broken :)

Rain and a soul

The silver lining disappeared,

Winds with claws gnawed on

Rain drops pattered on intermittently,

rays of peeking sun hid behind a gray cloud,

abandoning the shine to an ominous dark.

Sky waited with bated breath,

looking for a moment to grasp the rainbow.

Below on the ochre land ,

a humming bird circled a violet flower,

peeping in for honey and dew.

The swaying branch of the coconut tree,

sprinkled the drops of pouring rain,

on to a clinging vine embracing her.

A wandering soul drifted around,

calming the lamenting heart with scent of wet earth.

Then, spotting a lone lantern ,

slowly, turned itself into a moth,

to enjoy the heat of its own peril,

in the dim, beckoning warm light of the lantern.
