Liebster Award, the II

Source – Life in Sketch

This is my second Liebster Blog Award and I thank Sivaranjini for nominating me. Since I’ve already worked on the requirements of this award (here) I’m answering her questions right away!  ( I loved her questions)

Here we go …

1. Have you seen the movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? Don’t you think whatever the character Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) did to both the heroines (Kajol, Rani Mukerkji) was the most selfish thing to do? (Let’s just talk about the movie only and not the personal life of the actors) Your thoughts please!

I have not seen the movie, with some help from wikipedia, I’ll try answering. Love, friendship and any emotion for that matter, can be judged by the person involved at that particular person living through it. So I cannot comment on it.
2. What’s your take on human rights for rapist?
 I always wonder why does human rights step-in for inhuman acts. Sometimes we need to think beyond Gandhiji’s ‘An Eye for an Eye’ concept, to instill fear in the hearts of wrong-doers.

3. Women have gained freedom long back. But have they been granted that freedom in practice?
 By the books and records Yes! in practice, it is no! As Gandhiji said, only when a woman can walk without a fear of crime at 12 in the night, has freedom been truly achieved. It is reality in Sweden, why not for India then? (some day?!)

4. Do you believe in love at first sight? (Apart from your parents, yes, we all fell in love with them at our first sight, right?  )

Ah, the ‘question’ is here. I do not believe in love at first sight. A lot more happens than what just meets the eye. A few years before I would have put my hand up in favor, but meeting different persons, I would not prefer that.

5. Would you choose love or friendship when you’re put in such a complex situation?

It is situation based I believe. It would be wrong to specify ground rules, because it is emotions and there can be no fences whatsoever. 

6. Describe love from your point of view. (Exclude the love for your parents, that’s always there, if not then shame on that person!!)

Love is God, however in recent times I see it is also the most manipulated word.
7. Your most favourite food and the most hated food.

 Well there can be only favorite food, mine is subs; there can never be most hated food, so say badly prepared food can only be classified that way.

8. Coffee (Just type what comes into your mind immediately. Please let it be for more than 5 words at least!)

 Coffee reminds me of rainy days, exam days, JK Rowling, hazelnuts and of course F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

9. How can we differentiate between love and other similar feelings like crush, infatuation, and addiction?

 Love includes all of these crush, infatuation, addiction and the like and yet love is something much more than that, it holds respect, trust, understands differences and so on.

10. If you’re made the Prime Minister of India for one month what are the changes that you will bring for the country?

 I would ensure black money is weeded out and slums are eradicated, and scrap ROTE system of learning and introduce a system which more understanding based.

11. Your favourite song

One song is just too difficult to choose, I listen to classical, folk, carnatic, hip hop, electro, trance, dubstep, pop, rock but more or less mood based. So favorite song of one day will change the next time.


Re: Libester Blog Questions

Here goes my answers to Deepak Raghuraman‘s questions,

1) What is the happiest moment day in your life and why ?

The day when we won third place in Cluster V Basketball Tournament was the happiest day in my life; and why was I happy? It was after months of hard work that paid.
2) Who is the one person who inspires you most and why ?

I believe everyone has certain unique qualities and each of these inspire me. Some are good speakers, they inspire me to work on my speaking skills, and good writers inspire me to write more, the list is too long to write. It is because I believe everyone has something to teach everyone, a continuous process.
3) How you want to see yourself in the next 3 years ?

 Honestly I have no clue, I have varied options, and many forked paths that can make all the difference in where I see myself. It might not be the best response, but it what I’ve got.
4) If you have given an opportunity to create and implement one social awareness campaign , what would it be ?
I would choose to propagate awareness about the ancient lives of Indians – Saraswati Valley Civilization among people. We think they were not advanced, but on the contrary they were far more advanced than us, they had advanced in an all fields of technology, science, architecture, mathematics, genetics, and finance. *Ignorance is never bliss*  
5) What is the best blog you have ever read (Can restrict to blogs of CBC members) ?

It’s unfair on my part to choose just one! I like them all. As told above, each of the blog makes me want to write more. 
6) Education or Experience – What would you vote for ? You should select one and tell why ?

Experience, because education is a one way process and more theory based, it is not affected by dynamic conditions. Personally too, I believe that experience helps people get a perspective, it gives the third dimension to education which is 2-D’ed.
7) You are given an option to have a conversation with one person, who is no more. Who will you chose and why ?

Lord Mountbatten, to question why he divided Indian and Pakistan.
8) What did you want to be when you are a child and what you are now and what you want to be in future ?

My plans keep changing faster than a flag fluttering against the sea winds. I wanted to be a doctor when I was young, *any child’s first fantasy when they are gifted a doctor’s set*, then it set the stone rolling, I wanted to be a security guard, army or navy officer, Indian PM, surfer, a wiz in networking, a chef, too big a list again. (Sigh!). I’m a gonna-be-graduate now and I see myself becoming a financial analyst in future.  
9) Make a rhythmic prefixes for the 7 days of week . Eg: Super Sunday, Marvelous Monday etc.,
Sleepy Sunday
Monotonous Monday
Terrific Tuesday
Wandering Wednesday
Tedious Thursday
Freaky Friday
Soulful Saturday
10) What are the Best and Worst in Blogging?

Best and worst in Blogging is that, you need readers. It opens room for communications and discussions, simultaneously for manipulations too. 
11) If a movie was made about your life, what would be the title for the movie and who will you chose to play the lead role?
A lovely question, it would not even qualify for a short film though (haha!) 
And I would play the lead role (re-living is not a great option though :P)
