The questions from Bharati.... (which I've answered, which are hopefully interesting answers... :P )


1. Why did you start your blog? 

I started a blog way back in 2008...but back then, I used to mostly document my poetry in...and till 2011, I kept using my blog as a place to write poem rants. From 2012, it all changed.... I discovered the perks of blogging thanks to fellow blogger, Swarnali, and from this year, blogging has been a huge part of my life.


2. Who is your favorite author and why?

Ruskin Bond. He was one of the first authors who opened my eyes to extremely good Indian Writing in English...and I grew up with his first protagonist, Rusty. Rusty was my first crush and I don't think I've gotten over him.

3. What is the most delicious food you have ever eaten?

Doi-Maach. Especially when it's cooked by my mum...I am not a foodie at all...but this is ONE dish, I can eat all the time and enjoy it thoroughly too.

4. What is your favorite quote and by whom? 

"Never give up on the one thing, that you cannot go a day without thinking about." ~ Anonymous

"God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December" ~ J.M. Barrie

"The only reward for virtue is virtue - the only way to have a friend, is to be one." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

5. What is your favorite post that you’ve written? (Please provide link!)

Most of the posts I've written have been my favorite, at one point of time or another. So I'll pick them from three different categories.

Poem: Remembering in the Rain

Musing: You're NOT lonely, even if you are alone 

Short Story: Written in the Stars


6. Where is the most beautiful place you have ever been to?

Pondicherry. There's no doubt about that...it restores your energy, makes you feel good and one of the best places to discover yourself.

7. What do you believe is the greatest flaw among people?

That we listen too less, think too much and jump to conclusions (most of the time).
8. What do you like to do on the weekends?

Read a good book, play with Pippo (my cat), laze around for a bit, watch movies....anything to keep myself from working/studying.

9. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I'd probably learn how to sing. :-) But if that's too normal, then I'd love to learn how to cook delicious food, without taking too much of time....

10. What’s worse? A screaming Boss on Fridays or an emotionally manipulative mom? Explain.

Since I don't have an emotionally manipulative mum, I'd go with the boss... but I'm still a student. And the part-time jobs I have, never had the bosses screaming at me... Can I get a rain cheque on this question? :P

Here, I pass on the Liebster Award:
