Tag - Dhi Na Dhin

Was tagged twice not so long ago.....finally decided to dwell into them and write them down:
Tag 1 : (by pri)
5 Things in My Room:
My Writing Pad and Pen (for every little thing i scribble it down or sketch it)
My windows to the outside world (one real window for light and air and my bills gates's window for rest of the stuff)
Books - lots of them and all kinds - simultaneosly reading 5 different books depending on mood
Hard Drives loads of music -desi, english and hinglish and movies - in short my entertainment center)
Thought Balloons (every now and then there is some thought that I have - i blow it into a imaginary balloon and let it float in the room - in times of solitude - i burst few and carry them on - beleive me the mind stays light and the thoughts dont dissolve)

5 Things in my Bag
Sorry I dont carry any - like some other blogger had mentioned earlier - probably this was created by girls - mere bag me tereh bag se kam samaan kaise !!!!( how come my bag is lighter than yours)

5 Things in my Wallet
Wallet is the physical existent identifier of who I am in this country - and with relevant safety resources
License - identity
Credit Cards -need to eat and fill fuel
AAA Card - American Automobile Association card - for emergency situations like car break down - accidents etc etc
Medical Insurance Card - a must as I am on the road a lot - never know what can happen
Metro Card and NY Pocket Map - love New York - so carry it in my wallet with a metro card for the subways.

Phew!!!!!!There I finished the first tag.

Tag 2 : (by jaggu)
My 8 Habits - Facts in Life

1) Beleive in myself - to a point that people think I am despotic - but its part of my training as an architect - where if I dont beleive in my design how can I build something for someone - has now become my inherent quality
2) Movies and Music - anytime anywhere no matter whats happening in the world - I can watch a movie or listen to some sounds from any part of the world
3) Books - as described above love to read
4) Experiment with Food - am a vegeterian and love to cook so experiment with different cuisines from all around the world and give them a vegeterian twist - well honestly have not required to cross that line as yet - find everyone happy to serve you their version of vegeterian food - and have eaten in restaurants here from almost 24 different countries and cuisines.
5) Tea - love desi chai (tea) - can drink it anytime, anywhere -
6) Chocolate - damn this is my weakness - really in any form - chocolate bars and candies, truffles, cakes, mousse, bourbon biscuits, chocolate milk, chocolate horlicks and complan :P......
7) Rum and Coke (previously old monk and thumps up ) - dont know how long and how many i must have had -but always go back to my dear old rum - reasons are simple -
Gam ka Sathi Rum (friend in the time of sadness is rum)
Khushi mai bhi hamesha saath denge Hum (will also be you friend when sharing happiness)
8) Travel all over
Thats it - how I wish life was as simple and straightforward as doing this tag. I dont want to tag anyone - if you like it pick it up and let me know when you complete it so I can visit you and read it.

dude I drink anything - nothing specific....but Rum and Coke is like Soul drink - prefer that to others....
i did not know cooking too - but survival here alone - made me learn it and now its fun to experiment

the tag obviously is just a surface of ones life - if life could be categorised in 8 items - wont it have been easy, predictable and boring :)

first time is good - if you make it happen again and again - will block you WARNING (just kidding)

am new to all this so excited....lets see how long it lasts :)

c e e d y said...

@abhishek
dude yes it was you....and i think you are perfectly right....maybe we need a guy tag as what are the five things that you will carry if told to evacuate - only five things (girls i think will be perplexed)

c e e d y said...

@lena
looks like and whats wrong....sweetness is what we all need in our lives all the time :)

anuj said...

music is life ..
books are d vice ..
and life is d experiment here .. which sadly fails all d time ;)

rum .. have jus tried bacardi once ..with orange juice tht is ..else u knw .. its like netime dude .. I think its one of the better ways to reminisce with less pretence involved .. it sets u free somehow ..

@anuj
i agree with you here
i think we in our 'loneliness" hide behind the shrouds of books....etc, well atleast this blog is smg where you can write without any hangups....and i am not a compulsion drinker just a social one :).....
have made myself immune with this drink so dont loose control ;)

@cinderella
do you beleive in "less is more" if yes appropriate reaction

Ottayan said...

Thought balloons: Thats a good thought.. idea.

Cinderella. said...
