This is a tough tag as I have to answer eleven questions, and tag eleven people with 11 questions. Anyway, let me do the tag first.
1. Do you remember your first day in school?
Yes. Not the entire day, but going to school. No, I didn’t cry. I was actually excited about going to school.
2. Your favorite song that you hum often?
My favorite songs are different from the ones I hum often. ? . ! . I have been humming this ‘kolaveri di’ song often these days, but it’s not my favorite song. My favorite songs are listed here.
3. Which was your favorite subject in school?
Initially English and later on, Mathematics.
4. Are you happy with yourselves, well most of the time… for what you are today?
Yes. But I feel that I need to work more efficiently.
5. Role model in your life?
6. Have you got the habit of cursing often?
Not often, but rarely. I observe that I have become quite patient these days.
7. What do you do when you are very happy?
It’s very difficult for me to become very happy. It’s equally difficult for me to become very sad. I am slowly getting to realize that there is not much difference between happiness and sadness.
8. Do you believe in God or destiny or luck?
I believe in a version of destiny. I think that actions are in our hands and reactions (results) are not in our hands. Since someone seems to be controlling the reactions/results (sometimes even chain-reactions, which are actions in our perspective), they might be equivalent to God (at least for us). No, I don’t believe in luck. If I get a huge diamond worth many crores, I will not consider myself to be lucky. Instead I will throw it in a place where no one (me included) can access it. I think there are costs to everything that happens to us and every action of ours. There are costs even (and especially)to all the freebies that we receive.
9. Any regrets in life?
Not much. But I would like to meet the God’s controlling our lives (as per the above answer).
10. A sweet memory that you talk about often?
Again, the difference between sweet memories and bitter memories are blurring out, for me. I would like to see both in the same light. Both add to my experiences in life and help me form a better understanding of life.
The price we pay for not being affected much by bitter memories, is (in my opinion) we lose the ability to enjoy sweet memories.
11. Do you think you are a good son, daughter, brother, sister, spouse, parent? Mark yourself, if you can.
No. I am not a good son/brother. I am a good human being, and I need to pay the cost for being one, in our society. One cannot be both.
Ok, coming up with 11 more questions would be very difficult. These questions seem to have been framed quite well. So, I want the following eleven bloggers to answer the same set of questions. I am not tagging people already tagged by Sandhya.
I would like to tag – Kirtivasan, SM, Rahul Aggarwal, Nancy, Kee, My Era, P N Subramanian, Rakesh, Ashwathy, Kanagu, Sujatha Sathya. I know some of the tagged people will never do this tag, but still I am tagging them because I need to get my tag count to 11! 😉
PS: I am not going to intimate anyone, as well. Let’s see how many people pick it up.
