my 7 things tag!

what a life this is…
am back on my blog after around 2 weeks,
in between work and more work, i cud just glimpse at what others were posting and thinking of the time when i’ll be able to finally post something…
lots of things happenned in between, i don’t even remember most of them, what the heck!
some of that will be reflected on this blog in days to come…

meanwhile, i got tagged this ‘7-things thing’ by a friend in the uk.
he basically is a traveller. he likes to click photographs and likes to talk about them.
u’ll see lot of nice shots there.

Seven Things To Do Before I die

  • dance
    (in the rain, with a white sneaker in one foot and the one bare)
  • drive
    (down the yellow brick road in a dark blue convertible with my sweetheart and the four children following in the attached caravan- but that’s the second trip)
  • backpacker’s trip
    (around the world won’t be bad!)
  • write
    (and prefarably get published)
  • live
    (in a street overlooking the liveliest street in the world on one side and the deepest woods on the other)
  • love
    (completely and without expecting anything in return)
  • i think these six are more than enough.

Seven Things I can’t Do

  • dance
    (have two left feet and a sub conscious that won’t let that happen till judgement day)
  • drive
    (am absent minded enough to completely forget what braking is)
  • concentrate
    (on one thing for a long time. say 33 seconds.)
  • eat
    (without reading or watching tv or talking to someone)
  • follow my to-do list
    (this is pretty self-explanatory)
  • move-on
    (i can’t change my past, when will i learn this…if my zipper remained open at that party, it is okay, i was a 9 year old then)
  • stop dreaming
    (i’ll die that day)

Seven Things That Attract Me To My Mate

  • emotionally practical
    (because i am not worldly wise)
  • expressive eyes
    (because eyes should speak more than the mouth)
  • intelligence
    (should love books and a thousand other things to talk about)
  • super rich
    (my poor writer existence would be a nice contrast)
  • loves travelling
    (prefarably adventure travel, although i haven’t been on one single adventure trip yet)
  • is a pretty good dancer
    (atleast that way i’ll learn dancing)
  • if nothing else, atleast both of us shud love each other
    (love to nag, love to strike, to to … u got the brief, right?)

Seven Books I Loved

  • We the Living
    by Ayn Rand
    (freedom, individual and the state. one book that has moved me most. till now.)
  • Chandrakanta & Chandrakanta Santati
    by babu Devakinandan Khatri
    (a tale of adventure, tilism, mystery, love, warriors, faith, life and so much more… sort of a fable, a mixture of lord of the rings with arabian nights)
  • Sherlock Holmes
    by Arthur Conan Doyle
    (anything, a short story or a longer one, i’ve read them all. the logic of simplicity, if you delete the impossible, whatever that remains however improbable is the truth.)
  • Robinson Crusoe
    by Daniel Defoe
    (i always longed to be alone and lost on an island, this book gave me all)
  • Mritunjay
    by Shivaji Savant
    (never before a character came out so well in a book. it seemed ‘Karna’ descended to tell his story himself.)
  • The Time Machine
    by H. G. Wells
    (my favourite fantasy, traveling and traveling through time)
  • The Alchemist
    by Paulo Cohello
    (so much to learn from a simple little story)
