Last Movie Seen in Theatre Jodha Akbar. I had been waiting for it for a long, long time. And though it disappointed most people, I found it an entertaining watch.
Too long? Don’t care.
Historically incorrect? Don’t care.
Book Being Read None right now. Exams coming up. Plan to start with Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude soon after that.
Favourite Board Game Has to be Ludo! I’ve played Monopoly and Carrom as a kid, but nothing beats the sheer unpredictability and senselessness of Ludo. Ready for a game anytime!
Favourite Magazine Imagine a cricket-crazy kid who can tell you with unbelievable precision how many runs Dravid scored in the post-tea session in the 2nd test between India and Australia in 2001….that was me till around five years back. Thanks to Cricket Samrat and Cricket World and Wisden Cricket and the rest.
Then one day, I found myself looking at Alfred in the mirror, pulling my front teeth out and saying “What, me worry?” and its all been pure MADness since then.
Favourite Smells Nothing like wet earth. Without the shadow of a doubt.
And yes, the ‘smell’ of idle summer afternoons.
Favourite Sounds The rhythmic sound of drums and bells played together at Durga Puja. I wait for DP every year so that I can just close my eyes and for a moment at least, forget everything but that one sound.
And one more. OK. It’s a very ordinary, commonplace sound, I know. But I’ve always been in love with the sound of ceiling fans. Might have to do with my fascination with summers again.
If I think about it, those big, noisy coolers sound nice too.
What is the first thing you think of when you wake up? Simple. How can I get back to bed?
Worst feeling in the world Many of course. Hard to pin-point one. But being ill and alone at the same time has to be somewhere at the top.
Favourite Fast Food Place McDonalds. McVeggie Burger with cheese. Affordable and fulfilling.
Future Child’s Name You know what? I’ve been silly enough to actually decide on one. Not that I’m going to tell you.
Finish this statement, “If I had a lot of money I’d…” be confused about what to do with it.
Do you drive fast? Sometimes. Rarely, in fact.
Ek baar bahut zor ki potty lagi thi, tab kasam se bahut tez gaadi bhagayi thi!
Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? No. Of course not. Happ!
Storms - Cool or Scary? Dumb Question.
Do you eat the stems on broccoli? Zara hindi mein samjhayyega.
If you could dye your hair any colour, what would be your choice? Black. So that it amounts to not dyeing my hair at all.
All towns/cities you have lived in Patna, NewDelhi, Patna, Sindri, Patna, NewDelhi, Chandigarh, NewDelhi, Gurgaon, Gadhinagar. I wish Bombay is next.
Favourite sports to watch Cricket. Nothing like spending the whole day on bed, watching a test match day from morning to evening.
Football and Tennis are a good watch, but only if there are big names involved.
One nice thing about the person who sent this to you Dumb Question.
What’s under your bed? Two brooms, a discarded pair of floaters, countless number of thrown biscuits and chocolate wrappers, and a whole lot of dirt and dust.
Would you like to be born as yourself again? Yes. Weighing this against that, yes.
Morning person or night owl? Morning, for me, is the most dreadful time of the day. I think you have your answer.
Over easy or sunny side up? Ya Ya…
Favourite Place to Relax My grandparents’ house in Patna, with time suspended.
Favourite Pie Yaar main to ek hi pie jaanta hoon. Chocolate Pie. Wahi favourite hoga.
Favourite Ice Cream Anything with chocolate. Like Vanilla and Strawberry too. Free mein mil raha ho to koi bhi chalega.
And now, because most of the people I could tag have already been tagged, I invite only Calvin and Alien to carry on with the crap.
Also, now that Jezuz has shown signs that he is still alive on Blogger, I tag him too ;)
