1. If your lover betrayed you what would your reaction be?
I’m assuming its with a girl. So, initially, I’ll be too worked up screaming abuses and crying my heart out. I guess getting drunk is always an option. When I finally come to my senses, I’ll probably move out of the house and while I’m at it – take an undefined leave of absence from work and head to Hyderabad. My best friend’s been behind my back telling me to visit her for years now.
What I’m trying to get at is this – life still goes on no matter who lives or dies or who stops becoming a part of it. Its all easy to say, I know but its going to be real crappy to actually live it. Hoping to not face it, at least not in this lifetime.
2. If you have a dream come true, what would it be?
After being aimless and goal-less for such a long time, I’ve never thought about this question at all. So I’m finding it very hard to answer it … ah, who am I kidding I’ll take - Rich and Famous, any day!
3. If you could, whose butt would you like to kick?
Ooh… I read Vidya’s answers and liked what she wrote. So I’m going to change my answer and say – I too would like to kick everyone’s butt at some point of time or other. And yes, I’d like to kick my own butt because I know that it is not physically possible for me to do so, even as truly I deserve some of it.
4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
How many zeros is that??? How much would that be in rupees??? Heh. I’ll blow it all up, if I get the chance. Travel around the world, gamble it on the casinos, buy a hotel like Burj Al Arab in Dubai (I hope a billion dollar covers it). Distribute the rest of it among my friends. Thats right – though no more Orkut friend requests, okay?
5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
Erm, she’s a girl so I guess not. The other guys who’re sort of best friends are too much brotherly sorts, so no go there either. Even if I had a best friend who was male and hot to boot, whats the use? In any case, I dont want my husband to be doing all the things I would’ve done in answer #1.
6. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
As long as that someone spoils me rotten, as I expect him to, it’s okay with me both ways. Call me materialistic, I believe I dont care.
7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
I hate waiting. I cant stop fidgeting when I have to. Then I start cursing the late kates and even when they finally show up, I’m often spoiling the mood by griping about the whole thing. Love just flies out of the window at times like these.
8. If the person you secretly like is attached, what will you do?
Nothing. I secretly like innumerable people every week, attached or unattached. Acting upon it would hardly be the appropriate thing to do. So I grin and bear it till the next person comes along.
9. If you could root for one social cause, what would it be?
Child labour. Its so rampant everywhere yet we do nothing about it except for hire more children to do our dirty work perhaps.
10. Do you lie?
Everytime. I can live with it. However other people have a problem with it, for which the answer is to lie some more.
11. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
I dunno. Here? Still blogging, maybe. Unless I have to go run that expensive hotel I bought. If nothing else, I’d like to be happy. About living my life as I want. Happy to be alive and feel grateful for every single moment.
12. What’s your fear?
Losing people I love. Not being able to do things I want. Of horrific creatures coming out of the dark to haunt me. Being stagnant at work. Being bitter and cruel to others. My stupid anger. Being corrupt and hostile. The list goes on.
13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
I like Gurpreet. I think she’s got an awesome sense of humour and I like reading her blog. She’s got a terrific daughter, Ruhi about whom I just love to read. If I have a daughter myself one day, I’d very much like her to be like Ruhi.
14. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Heh. A minor re-write. I’d rather be married and rich. Like I am(?) right now.
15. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who will you pick?
I’m more and more getting the impression that this questionnaire isnt meant for married people! Who would I pick? I guess this is the kind of time Inky Pinky Ponky would be put to good use.
16. Would you give all in a relationship?
All and more. I’m an extremist. I usually do everything or nothing at all. In any relationship for that matter. Its a different thing that I dont try to expect SO MUCH back in return. Thats just being delusional. The thing is – its better not to expect too much and be happy when you get something back at all.
17. Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he has done?
Nope. I’ll carry that sting with me to the grave. Well, it actually all depends on my mood, truthfully. Whoever did that horrible thing would have to catch me in a good mood and see what happens.
18. Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
I love being in a relationship. I’m too much independent for my own good, I know but I dont think I can do without my husband either. I loved being single before. Its so liberating not to be answerable to anyone and do whatever the hell you want to. I’m happy to have experienced both.
19. Your all time favourite song. Only ONE. And why?
Strong Enough by Sheryl Crow. I used to listen to this song while growing up. Makes me feel nostalgic. Plus, its one heck of a song, in my opinion.
20. I TAG these 6 people because…
Shaliya – cause she’s the kind of single girl I would have been if only. I’d love to hear her thoughts on this one.
GWBE – The Pri of the AnDePRin gang, the defunct cough syrup company. I’ve never seen her do tags so I’m happy this one is unavoidable.
Sree – I love the way she writes. I cant wait to see her post.
Shradha – I want to know what she thinks.
Vidya - I would like to know what her answers would be.
Ansu – She’s on a long vacation right now. Does she have her work cut out for her when she comes back!
