  2. Answer 11 random facts about yourself

11 Random Facts about Me:

1. I am a hardcore fan of Chai. Earlier, when I was working, I was running behind aroma-rich coffee machines and fluorescent cafes. But during pregnancy, I had to give up this habit so I switched to the relatively safer option – Chai.

2. I’m a single child to my parents. This fact never bothered me until I got married, because in the past, I always had a dozen of maternal cousins around me whenever the summer holidays set in. After marriage, I realize the emptiness of not having a sibling on my own, a lot more than I ever thought I would.

3. My friends play an indispensable role in my life. My friends circle is too small, I’d say. But I’m more than contented with what I’m gifted and if you let me, I will even humblebrag about their positive influence in my life in a separate post. Two of my friends are so close that they know the entire life history of mine in a nutshell. But my secrets remain a secret with them. Do you know why? One friend is talkative but forgetful, most of the time she has no idea what I’m talking about but chooses to just console me. The other friend has a great memory but never opens up her mouth even if you offer monetary deals in exchange of a conversation with her. How lucky am I? πŸ˜‰

4. For those who are already following my site, this news is not new – I am married to Dr.H. But here is something I never told you before – We studied in the same school (that too in the same class) for 4 years but barely spoke to each other (though Dr.H often claims that we spoke once on our farewell day while distributing the gifts to teachers).

5. I’m not religious but I do believe in prayers, miracles and karma. And super powers too. Did I say Karma already?

6. My heart palpitates for what seems like nothing to others. My friends call me ‘padapadappukari‘ which means “the girl who constantly palpitates”.

7. I enjoy reading books. Of any genre. As much as I love reading books, I do not like to lend any of mine. Looking back, there were multiple instances of losing my best books to my close friends, in the name of lending; there is also a bitter incident of me failing to return few books to one of my senior friends. I regret both. Lending is basically a bad habit, if you ask me.

8. Fish, in any form intrigues me. Fish fry, fish curry, fish fingers and what not. I grew up in a place where fish curry is served for lunch on a daily basis. It’s midnight and I don’t want to crave for the crispy, crunchy tawa-roasted fish fry until dawn, so let me quietly jump to point number 9.

9. I detest Indian politics. Neither do I support any leaders nor do I believe in the facts and figures that media portrays to the common man. I’m still waiting for the right leader to steal my heart. And vote.

10. My favorite song right now is ‘Visiri’. It uplifts my mood instantly. The mellifluous music, the aptly complementing voice, the unadulterated tamil lyrics, the soul-stimulating visuals with subtle romance tittivating it a bit more – such a beautiful song!

11. I’m not a neat freak. I may not keep the house ship-shape if you drop by unannounced. I take a little liberation in housekeeping as a self-reward for looking after the kid all by myself. There won’t be any gooey dessert stains or empty cola bottles on the floor though, I assure you.

Questions Asked: Just state 15 random facts about you.

I am going to follow the same trick my nominator had used – add 4 more facts and make it a solid 15. Here we go!

12. I have an eidetic memory, which does more harm than good.

13. I suck at keeping in touch with friends and relatives. Please don’t hate me if you don’t get a call from me on your birthday, I have recently developed a strong aversion for phones. Chances are that my hearty wishes, prayers and tight hugs might happen for real, sans the whatsapp representation of it.

14. I wear kajal ALL the time. In case you spotted me kajal-free, Oh, hello Dr.H!

15. When I was a kid, I had a penpal. Her name is also Divya. We are still in touch, not by ink but via social media. We have never met yet and never will and that’s what keeps it alive and going.

My Nominees:

For this award, I follow the rule and nominate up to 11 other bloggers. Please visit their beautiful blogs. We all are a family and together we can help them grow. Thank you!

      Hi, thank you for visiting my blog πŸ™‚
      Kajal is a black colored paste (made up of certain ingredients that I’m not aware of) that is used to decorate the eyes. πŸ™‚
      About point number 15, We sort of decided not to meet in person, to keep the flame of curiosity in our friendship alive. But sigh, after the impact of Facebook in our lives, we were compelled to know the identity of each other. I won’t say I felt bad about it but the old fashioned ink-dipped writing and the joy of imagining the character by their own verbal description thrilled me more :’)
