Taggy Tags

This tag came from Bangalore via Delhi and Holland . I went into a procastination mode as soon as I saw the blogger who tagged me. I dont mind taking up tags as long as I can get ample supply of nariyalchutney . Previous tags are here , here and here .Since I am getting very few tags these days I assume that these young generation of bloggers think that I am too old to do a tag .

1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER: Last movie in a theater was "Khuda Ke Liye". This is the first Pakistani movie to be released in India in last 40 years and traces the life of two Pakistani brothers who have been caught up in a war between fundamentalists and liberal Muslims after 9/11. A good offbeat movie , more enjoyable since it is a different voice coming from Pakistan.

PS: My Friend who was with me didn't like the movie :P and caused enough misery by almost blackmailing me to watch Tashan. May be Jiby may enjoy it :D

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING: I am finding the Books in modern Indian fiction in Chetan Bhagat Mould very interesting and don't give much 'bhav' to the normal lot of writers. Just completed reading Tuhin A Sinha's book That thing Called Love set in the backdrop of Mumbai. A nice plot which tries to sketch out relationships in the lives of various characters suing Mumbai and rainy season as a backdrop.

3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME: I like Snake and Ladder and Chinese Puzzle - the game in which you create various shapes from seven pieces of various shapes.

4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE: Readers Digest.

5. FAVORITE SMELLS: I like smells of all things that reminds me of Malluland and Watercolours by God.



6. FAVORITE SOUND: Rain drops on a tiled roof

7. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD: Why to think about it?.

8. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE:I am too lazy to Brush.

13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?: It depends on what stuffed animal wants to sleep with me.

14. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?:Cool when I am watching it and may be scary if I am in the middle and is not a Storm in the teacup.

15. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?: I am a bike guy . Cars are too inconvenient to manage in Mumbai and other Indian cities.

16. FAVORITE DRINK :Smirnoff

"DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?: It depends on what stuffed animal wants to sleep with me."

For some strange reason I found this hilarious :D :D Go figure

Veno Mone Dinesha! ;)

Shikha said...

...And the tag will go to Bangalore now, although a certain person in Bangalore is now held up in Germany for a week more. So maybe the tag really goes to Germany now :).

Ah, what an ideal tag for a narcissist like me ;)

"Rain drops on a tiled roof"... *Humming a silent melody inside, thinking of how wonderful that sound is*. Rain in Malluland is so heavenly.

"No comments ,Since it will be a joint decision": How sweet :).

Other thoughts: your poor mother!!!
And of course, the poor non-stuffed animal who does get the final rights to decide to sleep next to you. Paavam ;).
