Silverine tagged me and here goes my first take at a tag. As a disobedient tagee this comes a bit late…
I swear all the answers are best to my knowledge and the most honest answers I can give.
1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER: “Taare Zameen Par”. Bolo wi-fi and youtube zindabad. Saved a lot of money( does not mean I’m stingy!)
2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING? The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. Considering the fact that I have my exams coming up, my course books have been excavated and I’m trying to read them.
3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Chess if it is considered to be one. This sudden love for the game arose the other day, when I won a game for the first time. The opponent being a 8 year old kid ( Also, I taught her the game :P, sometimes being mean feels good)
4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Frontline, Business World, Outlook, Marie Claire, Reader’s Digest. When I started to learn Malayalam, Vanitha used to be a hot fav( even if I couldn’t understand half the stuff in it). With passing time, I’ve become mature enough and the magazine has become useless :P.
5. FAVORITE SMELLS? The smell after the first rains… I like the smell of petrol, turpentine, kerosene 😛 . ( don’t get ideas, people!!!), Jasmine and the smell of ripe jackfruit and mangoes.
6. FAVORITE SOUND? The sound of the grand-piano, the sound of streams or rivers flowing, the sound that babies make when they giggle.
7. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? When you feel you’ve lost all your self-respect.
8. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE? Till last week it used to be ,” Oh God! I hope there is water in the hostel today”. Now it is,” Isn’t it a bit too early to wake up”.
9. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE? Bobby ka Dhaba near Ulsoor. Cheap, reasonable and delicious food. Love their butter-milk.
In Trivandrum it has always been the thattukadas.
10. FUTURE CHILD’S NAME? Deepti., That’s what my mom wanted to name me. I’ll give them simple names, that can be spelt properly. I had enough trouble with that already.
11. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. “IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I’D be as clueless as I am now, to give an answer
12. DO YOU DRIVE FAST? I did. Back in 2001, I was in class 9 or so, I was learning to drive. Was trying my driving skills in a football ground. I sped and like one of these, I crashed into the goal post. It is by God’s grace that I’m alive to recollect the story of antics and that I escaped from being blinded by an inch . Since, then your’s truly is careful.
13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? Used to, till the age of 2. A teddy-bear named Ponnan, until I tore him apart to vent my frustration.

24. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN? Yes! but not as the only child
