Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshine

Firstly apologies for being so late on this one too 😛 was a bit occupied.

This came from a very charming friend of mine, Aditi of (‘KALKAARI’ ).I have no qualms to say that she is one of the most creative person I know, very diligent and focused. Do check her place and U won’t be disappointed.

 

RULES FOR THIS AWARD :

  1. Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Nominate some wonderful bloggers and write 11 questions for them to answer.

 

My answers to the questions:

 

  1. Explain an innovative way of pronouncing your name.

Well, I pass this on to Aditi, I have this firm belief she will definitely put her creative driven self to pronounce my name majestically.

For my sake,

‘What’s in the name?’ …any pronunciation will only lead to me.

 

  1. What are you most passionate about and why?

Intrinsically m passionate about things that don’t matter to people around me or even if they do, it would be meekly.                                                                                                                  Things like spending days with a blunt pencil to bring out an ocular sketch or writing devoutly in a deep night and sleeping the next morning or the peculiar ways I strum my guitar. From being an observant movie watcher to a poetry fanatic or lurking on my dreams.

                                                                                                                              

  1. How did the idea of ‘blogging ‘come to you?

I heard that people blogs their hearts out by many, but I wasn’t sure or rather apprehensive about blogging initially. Then on one given day I just did all by myself and I liked it, it gave me peace.

 

  1. What inspires you every day?

My inspirations are not very particular, they depends on my mood swings.

 

  1. What is the meaning of life to you?

I consider myself to be too incognizant to answer that, perhaps the quest to find this answer is the meaning of life.

But certainly if I can make people happy, be good, can make them feel good is worth living…..because- ‘Either you do things worth writing or write things worth reading’ is the only way you’ll be remembered after.

 

  1. Would you race with me?

Where are you, still tying up shoe laces? I am at the race track….hurry up now.

 

  1. A date at a fine dining restaurant or a date beneath the stars?

Beneath the stars for sure, beside a calm, soothing lake which can reflect the shine of the moon & stars and illuminate our faces and bless our feelings, and a cool mild breeze to flirt with us assiduously.

 

  1. What makes you happy?

A great poem or book, laughing kids, seductive art piece, strong breeze, a dreaming woman, a thoughtful man, chirping birds, a ground with a game, progressive solitude and coffee.  Making people laugh or listening to the dreams of the old.

 

  1. What is the meaning of sunshine to you?

Sunshine means ‘belief’ to me. Belief in the existence of good and optimism. Belief that the tiredness of the world could be hung up some day. Belief that we all are fortunate enough to be blessed in our unique ways. Belief that we can get our soul freed by the touch of love.

 

  1. What do you think about writing?

Writing is harmony to me. Very sacred and turbulent at the same time. It’s like a postern to peace. Where I can be complete me, unaffected by hue n cry, futility and tempestuous of the people around, its my touch of honesty I reckon.

 

  1. What is it that you love to write about the most?

I haven’t thought about it much, but I don’t consider myself as an inspirational writer, I am more of the murkier kind. My mesh of words comes from triviality of life, ambiguous destiny or so called destiny, politeness of love, and my observant blemishes etc.

 

THANK YOU ADITI FOR THIS  😀

 

I would rather like to repeat the same questions, as they are thoughtful enough.

 

1.Explain an innovative way of pronouncing your name.

MY ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS ARE:

  1. What are you currently doing in your life?

Professionally I work in capacity of an electrical & maintenance engineer with a reputed real-estate firm. And be sure I don’t like it at all.

Personally, my incognizance is too prudent to figure this one out.

  1. What did you want to become when you were a kid?

Truly speaking I always wanted to be Batman, was infatuated by the gadgets and heroism perhaps. Though, I still want somewhat similar attributes.

  1. How far will it take you to become the person you want to be? Or have you reached that state?

I reckon I am in lacuna of it, that Delphic state, still seeking what I wanna be. But for sure want to be a good, noble, kind man that lived with generosity and love, perhaps it might take my whole life to be that way.

  1. What is the most liveliest, most beautiful memory you have?

The day I first saw my new born brother, that would be the most beautiful memory till date. His closed eyes meant dream to me and the touch of his fingertips were divine.

Liveliest would be when I first got picked for under-15 cricket team.

  1. Would you like to change anything in your life, maybe your past or present?

Yes, my insolence towards a few, in the past. It would be pleasant if it could be eradicated.

  1. Who do you cherish, love the most in this world?

That’s easy, my family. I don’t particularly tell them that often but they mean the world to me.

  1. What is that one thing you will choose to do, even if a million dollars were offered to you to stop doing that?

You gotta be kidding me, million dollars are heck lot of money :P…lolzzz

Perhaps, love for literature or my solitary indiscreet sketching.

  1. Where in the world (if you had your whim) would you like to live?

Paris, most probably

Its said cities have sexes, London is a man, Paris a woman. So I would like to explore Paris then, I like how this city offers the knack, the charm, the intellect and conjecture that somewhat intrinsically defines a woman.

  1. Who is your favourite author/poet? Quote your favourite lines.

That’s not fair altogether, but still if I had to then I would pick ‘Munshi Premchand’ for his courage to write sanity and ‘Charles Bukowski’ for his courage to write insanity.

Quote: Out of many I would pick these,

“The intelligent have plans; the wise have principles.”

“It is in the heart that the values lie. I wish I could make people understand that a loving heart is riches, and riches enough, and that without it intellect is poverty.”

“People with no morals often considered themselves more free, but mostly they lacked the ability to feel or love.”

  1. Why do you write?

I always had echoes in me, good or bad I can’t shout, but they were always there. I wanted to paint my recluse somewhere so whats better than writing. So, I would say I write for myself basically, it gives me peace.

  1. What does ‘being happy’ mean to you?

‘Being happy’ for me is being loved and loving someone out of my soul, out of everything. Doing things which brings me satisfaction, peace. An act of benevolence or something. Eating with people I love.
