I love Tags. A lot. A real lot! so when Shantala tagged me, I couldn’t wait to have it on my blog, and here it is!
Name a cartoon(s) that you love.
Politicians. Especially some pompous heads of state * wink, wink * On a serious note I am in love with the animated film – Moana and the vibrant girl essaying the title role.
What is your favorite song/s right now?
Teri Khair Mangdi by Bilal Saeed. It is such a lovely song from an ironically titled film ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ as most people could hardly bear to see it once.
What could you do for hours (that isn’t reading)?
I could write for hours! And surf the net! If the internet is down I love to clean out cupboards and rearrange everything.
What is something you love to do that your followers would be surprised by?
I love doing all housework, except for Cooking- which I abhor. I also love folding clothes.
What is your favorite unnecessarily specific thing to learn about (this can do with books, I guess)?
I like reading instructions on labels, any labels. I have no idea why I do it as I promptly forget what I read. Also,at the time of need no instruction has helped. Ever.
What is something unusual you know how to do?
Is sewing unusual? If it is then that is my unusual. Also, I make most Mithai’s at home, from Rasgullas to Milk Cake to Kaju Barfi and more.
Name something you’ve made in the last year (and show us, if you can).
I made a Miracle Hair Oil – courtesy a recipe shared by a dear friend and the results of using it have been truly miraculous! Also, my post went viral, with 6,500+ hits in a single day and about 28 thousand hits, and counting.
What is your most recent personal project?
Well, my most recent personal project was supposed to be ‘ME’ but it’s not going too well I am afraid. I have been pretty negligent and have put myself last. Hoping to get back on track soon though and reverse the damage.
Tell us something you think about often (maybe while staring out of windows).
Story ideas. Thoughts about life, about the past and the future. What to cook for the next meal. Why has the Dhobi not bought my clothes yet. Clever comebacks to bitchy remarks made my others years ago. Also, some gory scenarios, with the sky ripping open and strange things falling down. I think I’ll stop here, before I freak you out. I am a Stephen King fangirl, btw.
Give us something that’s your favorite, but make it something oddly specific, not like your favorite food, but like your favorite food when you’ve been studying for hours and forgot to eat. Or, you know, something like that.
I am not a fan of aerated drinks at all but sometimes I have this pressing urge to drink Coke with lots of ice and a dash of lemon juice. When I get back home after a trip I want Pakodewali Kadhi and Chawal. I love the famous, originated in Mangalore, ice cream Gadbad which is a delightful mess of about 6-8 flavours of ice cream with squares of jelly, more nuts than I have in my family and sauces drizzled over it.
