Thanks a ton Prakash Sir for nominating me for the Brotherhood Of The World Blogger Award  which is the second time I’ve been nominated. It’s an honor to have been nominated by you. Do check out his blog for some genuinely creative stuff. Sir, I hope I give the suitable answers. 🙂

1. Which one suits you best – yo or yo yo?

Ans – I’m not a hip-hop person so yo or yo yo is something I can’t select from. But, choosing yo-yo would be great because I’ve seen people doing tricks on the yo-yo. Haha!! 😀

2. Are you a yay or a whatever person?

Ans – Depending on the situation, mood and the level of excitement, I can be both.

3. What is your idea of a flop movie?

Ans – A movie filled only with masala, item songs, no story and cheap humor should always be a flop (which is not the case, sadly). Overall, I guess a movie should be thought provoking for it to be a hit.

4. Bike or car?

Ans – When I’m driving – bike. When someone else is driving – car.

5. Sunny evening, five best friends and what?

Ans – And roaming around here and there reminiscing about the old days and playing pranks, maybe.

6. “Game of Thrones”. Yes or No?

Ans – Definitely yes. No reason to go for a ‘no’.

7. You and your only best friend. Walk or movie or other?

Ans – Me and my only best friend – choose a good location, bring some stuff and start chatting.

8. Chess or carrom?

Ans – Chess.

9. How good chef are you?

Ans – The only thing I knew how to cook has recently been banned by the government (if you know what I mean). So, I learned how to cook an omlette and that’s the only cooking I know. So, I guess it makes me a wonderful chef. Hehe!! 🙂 😛 😀

10. Short and crisp or long and descriptive?

Ans – Short and crisp because it maintains the thrill and can never be boring.

So, these were my answers. I guess you enjoyed the post. Feel free to comment. Those who’d like to answer these questions, consider yourself nominated.

The rules are:-

1) Thank and link back to the person who nominated you for the award.

2) List the Rules and Display the Brotherhood of the world Award logo to your post and/or blog.

3) Answer the questions set to you and then you may create your set of questions for your nominees.

4) Nominate around ten other bloggers and let them know about the award.

Keep writing. Keep blogging. Keep smiling and keep spreading happiness. 🙂

A Place For My Tunes

image

I dream of a place far away,
Which would echo with the tunes I adore.
Far from the reaches of anger and foul play,
Far from the clutches of terror and gore.

Where the strumming on the acoustic guitar
Would make my heart pine for more.
The sensational flute solos not too far
Would caress me and mesmerize me to the core.

Where the slow beats of the drumsticks on the cymbals
Would keep my tapping feet rhythmic.
And the aura filled with clear and soothing vocals
Would break the melancholy and fill the soul with music.

Captivating me,
It would make me forget everything.
Inspiring me,
It would keep my blood flowing.
Hypnotizing me,
It would cast a beautiful spell,
And silently,
It would take me away from this hell.

Thanks a lot Ameena for nominating me for the brotherhood of the world bloggers award, which, I accept gladly. It’s the first time I have been nominated for an award and it feels good. To tell the truth though, I tend to give pretty boring answers to open ended questions. Nevertheless, I’ll give it a shot. So, here are my answers:-

1. What is your favorite book?
Naming one book is quite tough. So, I’ll name three 😛
(i) The Godfather by Mario Puzo
(ii) To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
(iii)Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen

2. Why do you blog?
Why do I blog? Well! I have always been a guy who hesitates a lot when sharing what he writes. So, I seldom showed my poems to anyone. One day, while surfing the net, I came across a wordpress blog and I really liked the community and the whole concept of blogging. And, I started this page. So, in a nutshell, I blog because people give honest replies, they don’t judge you unnecessarily & I really love my community. 🙂

3. Define love according to you?
A tough question! Love, according to me, is a feeling which makes us care about someone unconditionally.

4. If you had to choose one – fiction, non-fiction, poetry, which would you choose and why?
I’d definitely choose poetry because poetry, (as Meena Ma’am once wrote), is nothing but emotions packed in verses. A world of emotions can be painted in just a few lines. Poems can just take you to a different place in a moment. They captivate you. And, I think that’s the beauty of poetry.

5. Characteristic of your ideal woman?
Seriously, I have never thought of that. All I can say is that when I think of an ideal woman, I think of an angel. So, I guess, an ideal woman would be an angel (in disguise, maybe! 😛 )

6. Life is – a roller coaster, mountain climb, landslide, other?
I’ll go with roller coaster because, the beauty of roller coaster rides is that there is constant thrill and you never know which turn the carriage (or whatever it is called) will take next & the same applies to life. Plus, after the ride, we all leave happily. And, I guess same happens with life. In the end, we all leave contended.

7. Favorite author?
Again, naming one would be difficult. So, my favorite authors are:-
(i) Mario Puzo.
(ii) Agatha Christie.
(iii)Munshi Premchand.
(iv) Jane Austen.

8. What legacy would you like to leave?
Again, never thought of that. But, I guess I won’t leave anyone despising or hating me. 🙂

And, thanks a lot again for nominating me, Ameena . Answering the questions was fun & challenging and I loved the questions.
