Another award nomination! Thank you Silas for this wonderful acknowledgement! Check out his blog, he’s a wonderful writer and a fellow canine lover 🙂
The Rules for this award are –
- Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.

- Give 11 random facts about yourself.
- Nominate 11 blogs
- Notify those blogs of the nomination.
- Give them 11 questions to answer
These are the questions which I’ve been asked to answer :
1- You have been given an opportunity to master one skill. What will it be and why?
The ability to fall asleep the moment my head hits the pillow and then sleep so deeply that not even the sounds of rampaging bulls can wake me up. I’m pretty sure it’s a skill.
2- One author, dead or alive, you want to meet. Who will it be and what will be your day plan?
I would really like to meet George R R Martin. He’s definitely alive, and my day plan will revolve around me trying to coerce him to just finish A Song of Ice and Fire already! It’s been four years since I’ve finished reading the whole series, The tales of Dunk and Egg, all the background stories, all the theories, even the TV series. And I’ve repeated this cycle thrice. I need the winds of winter to blow away to finally give way to spring; which still seems to be a distant dream 😦
3- If you ever became famous, what will you be famous for?
I’ll become famous for being the only person who couldn’t come up with an answer to the question, “If you ever become famous, what will you be famous for?”
I’ve just started reading Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and intend to finish it. I’m listening to Charlie Puth’s “Marvin Gaye” while eating a wholesome breakfast of puffed rice cooked with stir fried onions and potatoes, with a light tempering of green chillies and mustard seeds, garnished with freshly chopped cilantro.
5- If you could only wear one color for the rest of your life, which color would it be?
6- Do bald people use soap or shampoo on their head?
Liquid body wash, maybe?
7- What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard today?
Salman Khan saying that racing tracks are for racing, not main roads.
8- What is the one thing you can cook better than anyone else.
I’m a fairly decent cook and can cook pretty much everything that has a YouTube tutorial, but I feel that my Chole Bhature rival my mother’s 🙂
9- Who was your most important mentor and what did they teach you?
My English language teacher in high school. “Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst” is what she frequently used to say and I abide by it till date.
10- You are given an opportunity to start a new life. Where would it be? What would you be? What all would change?
I would like to be a Panda living in the forests of China eating bamboo shoots all my life. My habitat would change, for one.
11- Do you believe in life beyond earth?
Of course I do! In fact, I can safely predict that in 2035, Matt Damon is going to grow potatoes on Mars and survive there for 560 Sols.
