The Blog

Monday, September 26, 2005


I have been tagged by themanwhowrote. I am not sure whether he tagged me physically or biochemically. This tagging movement on blogs spreads rapidly, across continents. Last time it was books and readings. This one is getting more personal. Answers marked with a asterik(*), are efforts to answer as genuinely as possible, hiding some private facts. These facts can be discussed in a more appropriate forum, at an appropriate time.

5 Favourite toys:
My Nokia 3350 - mobile-cum-hammer, it has some features which were not there in many of the contemporary costly mobiles. Bajaj M-80, with which I have had few memorable trips and adventures. This sane vehicle has at times carried 3 people without any complaint. Cooking gas stove: Plenty of times it has enabled me to cook Maggie and perform some experiments in cooking (thanks to all the living and other guinea pigs). My desktop of course, where I do all the work and write this blog. The Camlin comapss box I had in school, besides storing writing material, I would use it to play like drum.

5 Greatest Joys:
Italy wins any football match. It is a cloudy day. I am able to get into the local train. I meet an old friend at an unexpected place and time. Going for a long walk.

5 favourite TV shows(*):
Tom and Jerry show, Malgudi days, TWTW (The world this week) : The news were never like this before, Neev, and Byomkesh Bakshi.

5 things I would never wear in public(*):
lungi, sleeveless t-shirts, tight clothes, bright yellow trousers, transparent (Akbar Ilahabadi style) clothes.

5 places I would run away to:
$HOME, Mumbai, any beach, a hillstation, a horror movie show.

5 things I would do with $100 million(*):
buy a private jet; employ a pilot, and roam around to see the world.

5 Snacks:
Wada paav, Bhel, Thalipeeth, Chakli and shrikhand.

5 Bands I know all the words to:
while (true)
Please repeat the question;

I went for shopping and selected couple of shirts after going through 10s of shirts.

One year ago:
I was not writing blog and human kind was not getting to read some high quality reading material. I worked on IE and Bhindows.

Five years ago:
I was grappling with the first semester course work of my post graduation. It was first time that I was staying in hostel. I learnt to eat anything, yes, anything which is served in the plate.

Ten years ago:
I was younger and was learning the art of getting into the 'Mumbai Local Trains'. I played lot of 'galli' cricket. Most of my time was spent doing nothing. Then there would be exams and I would rush.

>> I worked on IE

I am curious to know what "work" you did with IE or it is an euphemism for "surfing".

>> Neev

I have seen the school where the serial was set. It is Scindia Highschool in Gwalior which in the serial is titled Vindhyachal School.

Yep you got it right. And then we had to fill status report using the browser. So all the work was accounted by IE :)
