Awarded

and so many questions to answer 😛

Leo & Reshma blessed my blogs [ Reshma reads my blogger page and Leo reads this wordpress one ] with this lovely award.

Rules :

  • Post 11 things about yourself
  • Answer 11 questions set by the nominator
  • Choose 11 deserving bloggers meeting the criteria
  • Set 11 questions for them.
  • Inform the nominee by commenting on one of their posts.

Usually I do not accept awards [ I am lazy to write a whole post about myself ] but recently I have some new blogs for you all to check. And so bear with me dearies ..

ME ( though I doubt my regular readers will find anything new here )

1. I am not comfortable writing prose ( fiction / non fiction ). I either wander from track or end up writing all poetry like sentences.

2. I love south-indian food more than north indian when given an option outside home.

3. I do not like changes in plans. If i make some plan , I want it to be followed strictly. Last moment changes irk me.

4. Lack of sleep and hunger made me a complete monster 😛 yes , I am the last person you would mess up with when I am sleepy or hungry.

5. I can not concentrate on anything if once I think of writing. When in that thought zone , I do not welcome any distraction.

6. I love questions. More so , the ones that make me think. Unless too personal , I like people who keep discussing different thoughts , beleif , ideas etc. I even ask a lot of questions from people I love most. Its the easiest way for me to know about a person.

7. I owe my reading habits to my mother. Most of my thoughts and experiences have her influence. One can say , we are more alike than siblings.

8. I love short poetry forms. I am too lazy to read long ones. I don’t even write long ones unless in rare moods.

9. Friends mean a hell lot to me than any relative. Many of them are my extended family sort.

10. there are times when I suddenly grow restless. I realize I can not spend consecutive 2 weekends at home without going out somewhere.

11. I fear a lot of things – losing my loved ones to unnatural causes is the biggest one.

And now the questions which I will be answering both Leo & Reshma’s questions in next post.

Jingle & Becca passed this award to me [ Did I tell you I loved the award image !! ] As per the rules , I can share it with 1-20 more bloggers. But before I do that , here is a poem I want to share with you all :

The Bridge Builder by Will Allen Dromgoole

An old man, going a lone highway,

Came, at the evening, cold and gray,

To a chasm, vast, and deep, and wide,

Through which was flowing a sullen tide.

The old man crossed in the twilight dim;

The sullen stream had no fear for him;

But he turned, when safe on the other side,

And built a bridge to span the tide.

“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim, near,

“You are wasting strength with building here;

Your journey will end with the ending day;

You never again will pass this way;

You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide- 

Why build you this bridge at the evening tide?”

The builder lifted his old gray head: “Good friend,

in the path I have come,” he said,

“There followeth after me today,

A youth, whose feet must pass this way.

This chasm, that has been naught to me,

To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be.

He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;

Good friend, I am building this bridge for him.”

Found this as a part of this article : Crerative Desires

And here is the carpet being rolled out to my most read and appreciated people in blogsvilla :

The amazing story teller Fubar [NothingMan]

My most recent reader and a wonderful blogger Bikram

Scribbling Gal for the most touching posts

Vinay for being so inspiring

Riika for being THE most talented blogger I have come across

Trisha , the one poetess I so much like reading. Also her paint work is excellent.

Fiveloaf for the fitting finest emotions into least of words

Luna for her wonderful blog and most honest writes.

Kenia Cris for amazing words and some fabulous images along them.

Mad(am) Kane for making me smile as much as think wise with her posts.

No one writes haiku as wonderful as Nanka.

Talking of stories , I am reminded of Chatterbox – simple and sweet !

 

Enjoy reading these blogs if you don’t already !

To You dear friend

You say things are no longer same

Well, I am not the only one to change;

You appear to be in some pain to me

wonder why you think its better to hide it;

You still mean so much so special in my life

I just am at loss of words to express this time;

I wish I could break the wall you think there is

but since there is none, how do i still fight it ?

This and that

This weekend i was at my cousin’s place – me and my aunt comfortable in blankets and listening to hemant kumar songs on youtube – she knows every single line of most of the songs still !!

My uncle was in the next room watching cricket match and no one is supposed to even touch the remote till it ends, so there are two TVs in the house – one for his cricket and rest for others to watch. Suddenly we heard the channels changing and all of us were curious to know who or what made it happen. After 5 min of browsing all the channels, my uncle came in and asked – “On which channel is the show with these old songs coming?”

We all laughed so much when we realized he was listening to the songs we played on youtube.

I will not forget this incident for long time. Such pleasure , such innocent joys.

And here is one of my fav Hemant Kumar song –
