The Liebster Award


Hello! πŸ™‚
I’ve been nominated for “The Liebster Award” by a wonderful bloggerΒ Muskan. Thanks a lot for the nomination, Muskan & sorry for being a bit late.
So, according to the rules, I have to state eight random facts about me & then answer a bunch of questions asked by her.

Eight random facts about me:-

1. I am a 21 years old graduate working in a manufacturing company in Pune that produces automotive parts among many other things.

2. I am a huge music loving person & I am a big fan of rock bands such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Poets of The Fall, Linkin Park, Coldplay, One Republic & many many others. And, I think their lyrics inspire me to write. I also like musicians such as Shankar Ehsan Loy, Salim Sulaiman, A.R.Rehman, Amit Trivedi, etc. In a nutshell, I like songs of almost every kind.

3. I love to sing (to myself generally). I was the lead singer of our college band which we called “The Broken Sticks” (because our drummer used to break a lot of drumsticks while practicing). Sadly, we all went different ways after college and now I miss them a lot.

4. I can’t stand when people waste food. And every time someone throws food off their plates in front of me, I end up giving him/her a free lecture. I don’t know why I do that.

5. I love watching movies of all genres. I currently have around 50 “to watch movies” which I don’t know when I’ll watch.

6. I am quiet at first but if you know me, I won’t let you be quiet & will constantly annoy you with pj’s , mimicries, caricatures and all. I like to join two entirely different situations and then crack jokes on the combo.

7. I am a huge huge fan of F.R.I.E.N.D.S and Chandler is my idol πŸ˜› . I mean I dream of cracking utterly sarcastic jokes with the best timing, like him, someday.

8. I love Agatha Christie novels and each time I finish one, I wonder how the hell could she think that much. It’s unbelievable. For the same reason, I love Sidney Sheldon too.

(Hang On! There’s more)

The questions asked are:-

1. How many books have you read till date? Which is your favorite?
A: I’m not sure but maybe 30-35 books. MY favorite book(s) are:- To Kill A Mocking Bird, Pride & Prejudice, The Godfather, And Then There Were None, The Devotion of Suspect X and Harry Potter series (obviously). I’m sorry to have mentioned more than one name. πŸ™‚

2. Which song is the most played on your playlist right now?
A: Right now, it’s an instrumental acoustic guitar piece called “Can You Stop The Rain” by Les Sabler. It’s a magical piece. Here it is for those who are interested:- Β Can You Stop The Rain

3. Have you ever been stalked? Like in real life?
A: Haha..nice question. But I haven’t been yet, unfortunately. Had I been stalked, me and my stalker would definitely be friends by now. πŸ˜›

4. What is your deepest desire?
A: To have my own studio where I’ll hold jamming sessions. I wrote a poem actually regarding this desire of mine :-Β A Place For My Tunes

5. Are you a better speaker or listener?
A: It depends on the situation I’m in. I can be both or neither one of them sometimes.

6. Which F.R.I.E.N.D.S character do you relate yourself to the most?
A: I think I relate to Joey and Chandler both. Joey, because of my love towards food and mouth watering dishes and Chandler because I love to crack jokes (although not as good as Mr. Perry has done as Chandler).

7. A memorable quote?
A: There was a movie called “Shawshank Redemption”. In that movie, there was a quote something like this:- “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing should ever die”. This line, esp in reference to the movie, is just amazing.

8. A girl you had the biggest fight with months ago turns out of the blue and behaves like nothing happened. What do you do?
A: I guess I’ll ignore her at first but then I’ll get back to normal depending upon her response. Seriously speaking, I don’t know what I’ll do because my fights don’t last longer than a day.

So, here were the answers. I guess I did not make anyone fall asleep by such a long post. And Muskan, I hope the answers were up to the mark. And thanks again for nominating me.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

So, thank you for reading and Happy Diwali everyone!! Be safe and enjoy! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Really glad to know that.
      Music – always been my first love.. My mom used to make me sing while she played the harmonium (and I used to feel like a maestro πŸ˜› ). So, I guess I’ve taken a liking from her.
      And Chanandler – Well! He is amazing. Ain’t he? I mean, even after 12 years of the program getting ended, he doesn’t stop to surprise us all. It’s just marvellous.. πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah, Chandler is an amazing character. And is always a delight to watch him!

        Same here, music is my first love too.That’s an amazing feeling. I have been trained in carnatic music for 1.5 yrs. But never stopped my love for music. It used to be so much fun to sing along with the harmonium. And your story sounds so what similar to the movie of farhan (like the sinbad the sailor :P). You should really reunite. πŸ™‚ My happiness definitely lies in singing and music. Maybe someday I can be a part of a band as well. πŸ™‚

    2. Carnatic music! Really difficult, I’ve heard.
      Well! It’s great to know that you still pursue your love of music. Same with me. And I think it is really important to have something like music stand by us all the time, through dark and through light. πŸ™‚
      And as for the reunion, I hope it happens soon. We really had the best of our time chirping as well as screaming.. πŸ˜›
      And as for the Farhan flick, it’s flattering to hear the comparison, but believe me, we are not worth it..
      And, you sing so well you sing that you don’t have to wish for a band as they themselves will come looking for you. Just keep the passion alive within yourself! πŸ™‚
