Being Tagged!

Standard

I suppose this would be THE most delayed, response to blog tagging game and to be honest for the first time ever, I can truly claim that this time the delay wasn’t solely due to my much blamed laziness.

You see last few months have been really happening on this part of the world. I was on the road most of the time, went through 10 countries(Europe),clocked more than 5000 km, learnt a new language, helped a friend in editing a book and last but the most important, I have finally picked up my craft. Yes people! I will be launching my own studio of photography and digital art by end of this year (No I am not quitting writing).

Coming back to the task at hand, so here is the thing, onwindydays has asked me to answer a few questions and as per my friend here,

I must…

1. post the rules. (X)
2. answer the questions the tagger listed for me (Getting there…).
3. create (or reuse) 11 questions for those I tag. (I liked these questions, I think I will use them again.)
4. tag 11 people. (Okay!)
5. let them know they’ve been tagged.(Oh man! this time I will definitely get Kicked out for spamming)

Moving on to Questions…

1. What is your favorite quote, who is it from, and why?

There are many, but the current one is by Ratan Tata, (Prominent Indian Industrialist),

” I don’t believe in taking right decisions. I take decisions and then make them right, so always believe in your ability and efforts.” 

Reason being, I wasted more than 29 years of my life not taking the decisions I should have long ago, simply cause, I was too afraid of being wrong. Now a days, I am making new mistakes and it feels great!

2. Which song can bring you to tears or reminds you of your childhood?

Well, its a Punjabi (my mother tongue) song, its about a middle aged man recalling his small village, long lost mother and lack of things in his childhood days, that made life much happier then, than it is today.

Artist  – Gurdas Mann

3. What is one thing that keeps you going day in and day out?

There are many, but mostly I think, the fear of leaving this world with regret of not having lived enough and My partner’s constant pushing keeps me going. but I do break down more often than I would like to.

4. Why did you start blogging?

Too much activity in my head and first time living alone, got me to start writing online (whatever happened to that blog, hmm).

5. Is there one thing that you regret not doing in the past? If so, would you be willing to share what that was on here?

Regrets are many, too many to mention, but mostly I regret having higher expectations and dependency on others in the past. Thankfully I am keeping it in check these days.

6. What is one thing that you saw that restored your faith in the human race?

I have had the fortune to see so many people bounce back in life from fatal setbacks and that’s pure human spirit. This is what got us out of caves (and thumbs) and this is what will ensure that we survive through worst of storms.

7. Rain or Sun?

Nothing beats Indian Monsoon but I like European Sun too.

8. What movie had the most impact on you? (A movie that just really made you challenge your view on anything)

There are many,

In pursuit of happiness, Tare zameen pe, Lakshya (Both Hindi movies)…

9. List five words that describe your character.

Creative, Dreamy, Patient, Lazy (too patient with myself, I guess) and very Protective of the ones I love .

10. What is your greatest fear?

Dying without leaving a legacy behind.

11. What do you ultimately want to accomplish in the days to come?

In the end, I want to have a life so enriched with experiences that I would be able to say goodbye with a smile.

As I said before, I really enjoyed answering these questions so I would really love to hear about them from you too. So here are my 11 bloggers and their Questions….

  1. Awesome! Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. These kinds of posts can take a while to put together so yea, thanks for doing that! Loved the answers, especially numbers 10 and 11. Also, that trip you had trekking Europe sounded like it was amazing! One day, hopefully I can travel abroad like that 🙂 Keep being awesome!

    • Dear friend,

      Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed reading the Q&A as much as I did answering them. I am here in Europe for a while and have plenty of contacts in India so if you just want to go nuts exploring that part of the world ever, I would be glad to help you out in anyway I can. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity of being tagged.

      Regards,

  2. The colours are stunning in this video – the red my most favourite favourite shade of red.

    The children look so carefree, so joyful. It is difficult to imagine beatings behind those doors. Just how can it be. How can man destroy such beauty – the beauty of joyful spirit?

    The mother washing her son & feeding him, is especially beautiful.
