Liebster Award

Finally!! Time to address my long due award nominations!

Thank you Respectable Married Woman for my first ever blog award! Her soulful writing on harsh realities of the society and glimpses of her art work are a treat to the readers. Do check out her blog and thank me later.Β  πŸ™‚

Like everybody else on Blogosphere, I’m copy pasting (something that I’m really good at, being a developer) the rules for this award, which are as follows:

Β 1. Thank the blogger who nominated you

2. Display the award on your blog

3. Answer a set of 11 questions provided from the blogger that you were nominated by

4. Nominate 11 bloggers, each with under 200 followers

5. Create your own set of questions for your nominations to answer

Here are my answers to Respectable Married Woman’s questions. Please be aware that my responses are no way going to be entertaining by any means. Proceed further only if you wish to know a bit more about the mind behind this blogΒ  πŸ™‚

1.What would you do if you had ten million dollars/pounds/rupees etc?

That’s a lot of money!! But yes, I have some crazy start up ideas but lack funds or investment. So, may be I’ll invest in setting up a start up business and create employment on a large scale. I would use the remaining to build good schools with accommodation for QUALITY living and education for the underprivileged in India or any place across the world.

2. Rate the following qualities/attributes , that you look for in a relationship or a partner(ascending order): Mental/intellectual stimulation and understanding, emotional understanding, physical compatibility or attractiveness

This is easy! (Highest- Lowest Priority):

  1. Emotional Understanding- This is of utmost priority to me, because no matter how intelligent/ attractive your partner is, lack of emotional connection will result in emptiness in a relationship.
  2. Mental/ Intellectual Stimulation
  3. Physical Compatibility or Attractiveness- Least bothered about this

3. Top 5 places to visit or vacation

These are a mix of places that I would be glad to revisit along with the ones I would love to go on a vacation at least once. Not necessarily in this order:

  • Kashmir, India (visited)
  • New York, U.S (visited)
  • Santorini, Greece (would love to be here some day!)
  • Paris (yet to visit)
  • Maldives (yet to visit)

4. What is religion(not god)Β according to you?

Religion to me is Humanity.

5. Would you call yourselfΒ  more analytical or creative, give reasons?

Well, due to my educational background and career, I have to admit that my brain is more inclined towards being analytical. But I would love to call myself creative too, as I always feel I have a creative streak due to my interest in art and writing. One such attempt to hone my long lost love for creativity, was the advent of this blog. πŸ™‚

6. If you could change one aspect of your life overnight, but have to give up ten years of your life, would you do it and if, yes, then what would it be?

Without any second thoughts, I would give up any number of years of my adult life to have my childhoodΒ  back and remain a kid forever!! I wish something like this existed in real. Sigh!

7. Do you believe in the supernatural, magic, or however, you want to call it?

Supernatural: I can think of this in two ways. I do believe in positive supernatural power, as the reason behind this very existence of the universe. As I never understood how matter can exist all by itself! While the other supernatural, say spirits/paranormal is a complicated area for me. As of now, I can say I do not believe in it.

8. Three random facts about you, that we don’t know already

  1. I have a master’s in Management Information Systems
  2. I do not understand coffee/ tea addiction, even though every other person I know is addicted to at least one. I don’t drink either!
  3. I have a habit of reading the ingredients, nutrition facts, or any other random stuff that is printed on the back of chips/chocolate packs. In fact any pack. I also make sure I read the piece of paper that is used to wrap a road side samosa/ other delicacies, before I throw it away.

9. How would you like to be perceived by others?

People usually perceive me as a reserved and down to earth person. I’m happy with this tag. I hope people are reminded of the quote, “Actions speak louder than words”, when they think of me πŸ™‚

10. Tell us the funniest thing you ever heard or read about

It’s hard to pick one, as there might be too many. But when I first heard/ read about the World ending in 2012, I felt it was the funniest. Though I later started freaking out when I read few Nostradamus theories!

11.Do you like, doing these award nomination Q/A, why?

I like doing these as I am an amateur in the blogging world, they are a source of encouragement. Award nominations help explore new blogs and throw a platform to know a little more about the writer behind the scenes.

Now, my nominations are:

Gary

bloggeray

inkyfire

serenasinclair

menmystiquesnmysticism

pluviolover

hiddenminds

itsallaboutus978

B’s love

I know they are less than 11, but I was unsure of how many have less than 200 followers. Any budding blogger who comes across this can feel free to answer the questions.

My questions:

  1. Describe yourself in three words.
  2. If there is something you would like to change about yourself, what would it be?
  3. Three random facts about you, that we don’t know already.
  4. Your top 3 favorite holiday destinations
  5. Your inspiration to write/ blog
  6. If you had the power to change one aspect in the world today, what would it be and why?
  7. Your favorite season
  8. When you are not writing/blogging, what is the most likely thing we can find you doing?
  9. A book you would read over and over again
  10. A favorite quote you believe in
  11. If you were to be stranded on an island and had a chance to take just one thing with you, what would it be?

Hope I’ll get some answers to read! πŸ™‚

  1. Congratulations on the award first and foremost. Your wonderful blog deserves more and more recognition.

    Reading some of your answers, I felt like it was me answering. They were so spot-on for me too — the answers for 2,4,6 and point no. 3 in 8.
    I regret to tell you this, but I don’t do award and chain posts. I apologize in advance if that hurt you.
    Once again, congratulations. Keep these wonderful posts coming. πŸ™‚

    1. No problem at all! It’s perfectly fine! πŸ™‚ I took this challenge, just to reveal a bit more about myself, as I did not disclose many details in my ‘About’ page.
      And what a coincidence?! Do you have a habit of reading that crap too? πŸ˜€ I’m so glad to know that we share such a weird similar habit πŸ™‚ and also similar perspectives. Thank you for all the support. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      1. You’re welcome.
        I don’t know the reason, but I always read the labels. If I’m eating something in a page from a newspaper, my eyes will go to what the papers are saying. I tell myself that it shows my curiosity. But what it actually is, I have no idea. πŸ˜€

      2. Haha, you are resonating exactly how I feel! πŸ˜€ May be it’s just our curiosity to read anything and everything that comes our way. Or may be we love words so much, that we don’t tend to miss even the tiniest paper with words! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so very much for taking time to stop by my blog and comment! Means a lot to me πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Yes, no act of kindness irrespective of how small it is, will be ever wasted.
      Gary is a wonderful person and his writings are amazing. I have the privilege of calling him my first blogger friend. πŸ™‚ I follow your blog via emails and you are very inspiring!! You have a great blog, useful for many budding bloggers like me.

As always, some parts felt like me reading me, but I guess that’s how our personalities are πŸ™‚ That said, I am a very new entrant to blogosphere and I definitely know I have less than 200 followers!!! That doesn’t seem so bad though, especially if I get to answer interesting questions! What say you πŸ™‚

  6. Congratulations for the first award :). So I really enjoyed reading your answers :). Could see many things in common. Oh yeah, those are the list of places even I would love to visit.

    Coffee addiction : that’s something even I don’t understand. Since I don’t drink coffee and tea, hence don’t know the reason for the addiction. πŸ™‚
