Six random things

Scarlet tagged me in this game of 6 random things about oneself…Its interesting and I am game for it...So, here I go first posting the rules and then the writing 6 random things about myself (Actually I broke the rule and went ahead to write 7 things...but I’m sure nobody will mind :))…

Here are the rules ~

1. Link to the person who tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Write six random things about yourself.

4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.

5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.

6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.


Some things about myself ~


1. I can relate myself with a river ~ have never been able to stay in one place, one thing or one situation for long ~ love it and hate it!

2. I am a bundle of contradictions ~ I love the rains and the sunshine, partying and meditation, simplicity and style, rock and country music… luxuries and roughing it out…. the list goes on...!

3. I am unbelievably bad at handling my finances, tax returns and stuff like, to the extent that I don’t even remember my total salary package….which infuriates my sister, who is a banker! And I don’t really care for money, but love the things money can buy..! :)

4. One of my aims for my life is that I want to be able to play one musical instrument really well before I die ~ working on flute and guitar ~ On a highly positive note, I will end up learning both of them really well ! :)

5. I simply love green chilies and nobody else in my family does. But when I cook I cant help but be generous with the use of green chillies… and those days we run short of dessert..!

6. My childhood was spent in Kashmir (a beautiful hilly place in India which is known as the ‘Switzerland of India’). We had fields of roses behind our house and our garden had bushes of huge white snowball flowers…vivid memories of those days still bring the smell of that air to me…

7. I have learnt that things change, people change, situations change, but life has to move on…acceptance and letting things be is better than resistance. (well, actually am in the process of learning it…)

Now I tag ~

What I wouldn't give to see a photo of your hilly place in India.

I'm currently learning how to play the keyboards better, and I agree with your #7...a difficult thing to learn but it's the only way to LIVE.

#1 and #2 are so you...they read like poetry.

Thanks for playing along. I loved your answers! :)

:) I have so many random things about myself on Chai ki Dukaan that I might not be able to randomize myself further :P

now it would be just secrets coming out and it can get too risky :P

Kashmir, I know the reason why its called the heaven on earth !!! Have been to SriNagar once and can't wait to be back !!!

@ Scarlet: Thanks for tagging me in this game...it did bring forth the memories of lot of things which had got hidden somewhere in the layers of time...


@Pink dogwood: Waiting to know you more..! :)


@ Sharanya: yeah girl..just give it a shot..the place is worth it...! Will check out your list...!


@Arch: It surely was amazing Arch..but its side effect was that since me and my sister had grown up surrounded by those mountains, we has assumed that the whole world was like that ~ beautiful and peacefull...! Imagine the kind of shock that we felt when we shifted into the concrete jungle of one of the biggest, busiest, and most polluted cities of India ~ Delhi!

Cant wait to have a look at your list ! :)

@ Om: yes Om, I agree with you...and I myself am a reader of those random thing abt you...tagging you was probably an attempt to squeeze out one or two of your gaurded secrets...but you guessed it and slipped out...!! he..he kidding :)


@NRkey Menon: Will check it out..!

How about the random photos and the things I did... that should be random enough to qualify for the tag :)

Wealth power love desire,
One goal to live for before we die,
One taste of glory,
One mouthful of sky..."
