Thanks to Dream'r (Amit) that he tagged me and I could put forward some facts about me. Hope It is entertaining.
1)Once my Head of the Department asked me what you want to do in life; I said I want to be a Rock Star; one should have seen the look on his face. :P
2)Talking about being a Rock Star, I dig music; any thing from Beethoven to Beatles. I wanted and still want to have a band but in college performed solo due to ego clashes.
3)Performing on stage gives me a high like nothing else. Talking about getting high, I am also high on Football, reading and off course talking to girls (best if they are complex, pretty and smart).
4)The final statement in 3 may sound rash and politically incorrect but it’s a fact. Girls/Women are an inspiration for me, for the artist inside me. Inspiration for my writing, poetry, paintings and songs and seriously it is like Oxygen to me.
5)People say I talk really well and they are comfortable talking to me. It ends up me being a shrink and a sink of secrets to my friends; I guess I should have been Psychologist.
6)Talking about Psychology, I plan to read Sigmund Freud’s ‘The Interpretation of Dreams’. I want it because I tend to dream too much. One recurring dream from my childhood was running around without my pants: P. Unfortunately I saw it again a few months ago.
7)Currently my favourite brand of jeans is Levis. Levis 501® just fits great and I can go all day in a pair of those.
8)I tend to keep my room (clothes and stuff)in a bit of a mess as I feel things should be always at a grabbing proximity. This quality of mine tends to piss my mom off.
9)I have very liberal parents. My Mom once advised me against marrying saying that ‘if you want all the things in a marriage you can live in’. :-o
10)I had my first crush in standard 3 and wrote my first love letter too. :P You see I like to start early.
11) There are times when I cry but mostly alone. I feel crying is a very natural thing as eating, sleeping, breathing and having sex. (Please don’t have any wrong notions!!)
12)I love to eat; people say it’s a pleasure feeding me. I love all kinds of cusines, Bengali, Indian, Italian, Chinese, and Lebanese etc. Oh!! I have a sweet tooth too, Gajar ka halwa, gulab jamun, Chocolates … mmm … People say only one thing competes with great food … :P
13)You may think I must be obese but fortunately I am not. As I have always been into sports; played football in my college (Right/Left Back and Right out) and now I jog 3 to 4 kms daily.
14)I want to learn to swim as I think it’s the best form of exercise. By the way one damn astrologer once said I should keep away from water. I think these punks should keep their opinions to themselves.
15)I hate people who are presumptuous and give unsolicited advice. I also hate hypocrites but strangely one my closest buddy is a self proclaimed hypocrite.
16)I am choosy about my friends. I have lot of acquaintances but there are very few whom I consider as a friend.
17)I know so many people or rather so many people know me that I have a difficult time remembering their names and it is very embarrassing when they remember my name ( Obviously it is short and easy to remember !!) and I am rendered speechless.
18)Talking about embarrassments, once I was on stage and started a song off scale; good that I recovered (with the help from the guitarist) and completed the song with a blast.
19)I feel last 18 thoughts have been too serious like my life (At times I feel like asking myself ‘Why So Serious?!’). So now some really of the hook. I own an ipod classic and will buy an iphone 3G as soon as I reach the US of A.
20)I am a sucker for beautiful and expressive eyes, I love to get lost in them.
21)I was a philatelist (stamp collector) to the core; I even pinched some stamps from my friend’s collection. I feel the test of a true collector is if he can stoop down to the most immoral deeds to augment his collection; similar to the test of a true politician. By the way isn't a politician too a collector rather hoarder ? :P
22)I believe ‘revenge is a dish best served cold’; for example today people “Egged” me to play Holi but I had my revenge too. I pinched a few eggs from their own arsenal and attacked them after they had their bath. :P
23)There is a saying ‘Once bitten twice shy’ but I don’t believe in it at least in the matter of heart; other wise I wouldn’t be listening to Ghulam Ali, Jagjit Sing, Md Rafi etc so often. :P
24)I think our life should be a work of fiction so I keep on trying to forge it in that way. More I want it to be a Romantic Comedy, more it becomes a surreal tragedy.
25)By the way I can’t lie keeping a volt face but obviously I can in my writing. I love to mislead people. ;-)
This is the End Beautiful Friend, this is the end my only friend the end.
I tag Sophie, Komal and Pink Orchid. Any one else can also pick up the tag.
