Hey!! I lost the post as it did not get published!! Shucks.. let me type again!! Oh dear dear!!

I was tagged by dear Shalini -my new online friend. Last time I wrote about her here only but then since there is a question about "who tagged me" I will write about her there itself... and save my time in re-writing this post again. I am copying and pasting the tag rules and questions from her post.

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by continue this game by sending it to other people. Now now Shalini I am not too sure of this.. I could not find 6 people whom I knew enough to tag them... siggh....

1.If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
I will feel sad. What else can I do? I love someone, it is for eternity but I cannot make her love me I cannot do anything life has to go on. But the love remains...

2. If you can have a dream come true, what would it be?
To see the world and then settl down in a house on the beach with glass windows opening to the seaside view. Of course a man never has just one dream.. I have many....

3. Why do you blog?
Well I started to share my feelings and make new friends hopefully and so had many blogs. But now I blog to feel satisfaction of creation.. so the only blog current is my photoblog where I wish to post creative photos of what I see around me. But alas.. I am not there yet!!

4. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
Too late to ask me this question. But I think it is best because love that is based in friendship is more permanent. In my case my love turned into my best friend - my wife.

5. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
To love is supreme. Anything that is supreme has pain too. What is more blessed? Who am I to judge what is more blessed. I just love.

6. How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
Love never dies for me. But why wait for the moon? Life is short.

7. Would you ask out the person whom you like?
Sure! I would certainly like to share time with her.. but gotta be sure first.. whoa.. I do not want to get slapped!! hehe

8. What do you want to be known for when you die?
I dont want to be known for anything. I just wish to die knowing I have taken care of my loved ones and have not left them in a lurch.

9. What takes you down the fastest? Backstabbing

10. What resurrects you the fastest? Bright cool morning, hilly road, soft music, blue sky above and flowing river below, and a long drive- this combination works best!

11. What’s your fear?what do I fear for?
Fear of not being able to share my fear with someone else.....

12. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Shalini!! My new friend!! She is cool, hep, different, cute, sweet, but most importantly INTELLIGENT with a depth in her mind.. I became her friend for this reason precisely so that I can dig into her mind to locate the treasure within.... I am lucky to find her..

13.Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Too late a question for me since I am married and I am not poor (not rich either though). But hey it is not good to be poor and married.. wives do not like that!! They will eat your head.. so better to be rich and single.. Rich and single .. if you are rich you will never be single..!! got me??

14. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who will you pick?
I can love many at the same time because love is a feeling between two persons, nd when one person in this case is different, the love too will be different to some extent. Of course the two will not allow this to happen.. so since I do not like to lose my love... I will not pick one and lose the other. I will not pick anyone at all.

15. Would you give all in a relationship?
Well all relationships demand your all.. so you gotta give.. or else you lose...

16. Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he has done?
I have a good memory so cannot forget. And who am I to forgive? I do not have the power to punish anybody so my forgiveness is autmatic even if I may not like to..

17. Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
Too late for me to reply to this question. But then even when you are single you need some relationship-- parents, siblings, friends, lover, living-in, whatever ... so there is no such thing as being pure single ... true & pure singles are mad people.... haha!!

18. Who/what inspired you to start blogging?
My dad died in an accident and I started blogging.. guess something cracked inside me!! All bloggers are mad.. I too am!

19. Why does one tag? Good question.. I too was thinking why I was tagged and should I tag. I guess people tag to make friends or acknowledge existing friendships? Or is it just some hidden desire to connect with people? Tags are for the young....not for the old I guess...

20. Tag 6 people: Now as I said I do not have that many readers whom I know well enough to tag.....still here is one online friend whom I know quite enough to tag her-- Reena, I'll try to be truthful, Monsoon Dreams, Muse, Sujoy, I-Feel-Random.

wow!! I got 6? !! Hmm.. well am relieved now that I have not let down Shalini.... :-0)
Will go to sleep now! What a relief!!!


  1. Wow , it was interesting to get to know this side of you and thanks for those good words about me :) I hope you enjoyed taking this tag :)

  2. Of course I did! Otherwise why do you think I was awake to post the message!! and whoa! do not thank me for those "Good words" about you..! They sound good because they describe you!!! I understand people.. very well... and you are one of the best... comparable with many that I have met and who are best too...

  3. You know what, It had to be on a blog that you realise that apart from a Wagon R and A grey Santro, we do share the same thoughts.

  10. Hi Dorothy thanks.. I used to think a lot.. earlier Haha!! now I am too tired to think... [my mind is too fertile for my ease!] .. maybe again I will think one day :-

    i will check your post just after I get some other pending jobs over.. no problems your adding any links whatsoever..wherever...

    but hey do visit my photography blog which is the main one..

  11. Hello...ahhhh do tend to write a do I. I fight that all of the time on my blogs anyway.

    Yes there are many varieties of relationships...the ones that slowly loose sexual interest and continue to live contently through common thoughts and ideas is most likely what people strive for in the end of their days.
    It is hard to compare the early stages of a relationship to the later stage. Many people also enjoy sex with their partners and at the same time are also attracted to 'strange stuff' for lack of a better term.

    Then we have the couples that love to share sexual pleasures with other couples stating that what is private between them a a couple is their love for one another and sex has nothing to do with it.
    In my post I was trying very hard not to cause too many forks in my thoughts and wanted to simply answer your questions through my mind.

    I do not put much investment into what psychiatrists state as they tend to generalize and/or use theories they read about as opposed to real life.
    I have always been a bit of a skeptic when it comes to therapy and whatnot.

    The great thing about our being human is that we all have the freedom to our own thoughts and perceptions.
    What opinion may work for one person may not work for the next. But in life we generally have a balance.

    I feel we would make good penpals as we seem to have the same thinking capacity about people. It is always enjoyable bantering with like minds.

    As always I look forward to your thoughts!
