(Dear Brat ur tag is a little difficult for me to do. So i am doing the easy one first)
(I am very bad with my hyperlink-ings due to lack of patience..so please excuse that too…)
1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER:
I dont remember precisely. I think it was Dhoom 2 as part of the last college ‘outing’. I remember being the only girl in the hall cheering with the guys when bipasha made her grand bikini entry. (i am straight-just was shocked at seeing her from flab to fab in that movie)
2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
‘Societas Europaea’ by D. Kraakmann. (Yes Kraakmann thats the name of the author-prolly thats the effect the subject had on him) Too busy with syallbus textbooks to pick up anything else. :~(
3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Snake n ladder and ludo (the ones which had the games on either side of the board). Scrabble n chess required brain activity so avoided them.
4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
Nothing in particular as it depends on which magazine is available at the reception where i am waiting. However i would love to feature on the cover of Forbes and Time. (I will need plastic surgery for the Cosmo or Elle or Vogue cover)
5. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Being the foodie that i am i love the smell of onions cooking :~) Also like the smells of shoe polish and orange rind.
6. FAVORITE SOUNDS?
These days i like the sound of Dad’s caller tone cause i know i am calling home. Else sound of breaking glass (yes i am weird) and the hissing sound made when water touches a hot surface…
7. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
When i realise how much time i have wasted (I am feeling so right now too :~P)
8. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE?
I actually say this- “F$#@ i am late again!!!” or “Jus half an hour more…zzzz….zzzz” followed by “F$#@ i am late again!!!”
9. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
Natraj Dahi Bhalla Centre in Chandini Chowk, Delhi. In London, the 4 kebab shops in Leicester Square.
10. FUTURE CHILD’S NAME?
Being a true blue malayalee, it will be a nonsensical mix of my name and that of the child’s father’s. Since i do not know the latter’s name, i will have to skip this question. But i can assure u that the name will not have a meaning..it will only be a ‘sound’ (like jiji, liji)
11. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. “IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I’D…?
Get Mum enrolled in some gourmet cooking classes across Europe (Dad can enjoy post retirement bliss with Mum in all these countries) and enroll myself in Pineapple Dance Academy [they r so damn expensive :~(] All this after investing a major chunk of the money as per Dad’s advice, so it better be LOTS of MONEY [PS- Mother Teresa is not my role model and this is no beauty pagent]
12. DO YOU DRIVE FAST?
Only wen dear Balbir bhaiya was present and we were on a national highway. Its over a year i touched the steering wheel. :~(
13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No. Was/Is too much of a tomboy to do so.
14. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?
Would have been cool if they didnt wreck everything on their way.
15. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
I m still a stingy student, so no car yet. Though the first one driven was the maruti 800 with a pair of clutch and break, one for the driving instructor and one for me.
16. FAVORITE DRINK?
Totally depends on my mood. All time favourite is Banta from Chandini Chowk. (Lemonade with the goli kuppi soda and a special masala) The dirty water and unhygenic surrounding made it taste better.
17. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, “IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD
Pursue dance once again, learn a new language….
18. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?NO!!!
Yes. But would try and avoid eating this vegetable given a choice.
19. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?
After bronze, blonde and orange streaks and a perm my hair is not ready for another experiment. But as the question says “IF”- then it wud have to be Neon Red streaks. (I like solid, jango colors)

A bed anywhere warm and cozy. Relaxing for me = Sleeping

Apple pie which Mum makes cause thats the only ‘margarine-free’ pie i am aware of and she also puts raisins in it-jus the way i like it. Occassionally Xmas Mince pie.
29. FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
Mum’s pineapple ice-cream. Ever since in London, Ben and Jerry Cookie Dough.
[My mother’s culinary skills is every child’s fantasy come true. For a middle-aged malayalee mother she makes a variety of continental desserts. She will be receiving her third Michelin star this year :~D So dont think i am blah-blah-ing when i say “Mum’s apple pie”, “Mum’s ice-cream”. She even makes the cleanest, unadulterated chocolate truffle and cheese cake too :~P]
