my own self..

I picked up this tag from Mathew. Writing this was exciting as I dug deep into myself and came up with these facts :). So here I go.

1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER:

Everyone’s favourite – Taare Zameen Par

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?

“One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Simply Awesome. Grab a copy today if you love reading magical realism.

3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?

Loved playing Ludo. Now nothing much. Cards of flavors Rummy, Paral (Theen Paththi) are the present favorites, if they count to be a board game.

4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE?

Sportstar, Mathrubhumi (Even though now a days the standard of Mathrubhumi is coming down), All the Onapathippu's of main Malayalam magazines, Bhashaposhini.

5. FAVORITE SMELLS?

Smell of earth after a rainy day
Smell of Fish Fry especially if the fish is Ayala or Maththi
Smell of good Malabar Chicken Biriyani.

6. FAVORITE SOUND? Of MUSIC?

Sound – Of my Bird after she is revamped by Gopettan. Tuff, tuff, tuff… , of torrential rains..

Sound of Music – mmm let me think. A. R. Rahman’s usage of flute in Tanha Tanha in rangeela, and also in lot of other songs.

7. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?

When I am alone, I think about the various incidents my life which I could have averted if I could have behaved in a much better way, and at that point.

8. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE

Where is My Specs?

9. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?

When I was staying Koramangala, it used to be the Modern Bakery near our house. Now nothing much. Bhagini Paradise satisfies my hunger for Biriyani’s .

10. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?

I do not know about future child’s name, but I do like the name Appu a lot. I guess that’s the most used name for kids in Kerala. M.T's protagonist in Naalukettu is called Appunni. May be I am influenced by that

11. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. "IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I'D...?
Our Economics Sir taught us, money is what money does. Frankly I do not know; may be I will venture for a world tour on my Red.

12. DO YOU DRIVE FAST?

Yes I do. But that doesn’t mean I drive rash. I do drive fast when I have the mileage to drive fast. Like on way back home to Vadakara, I touch 90-95-100kmph on Mysore Road, while I reduce to 80 after Mysore.

13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?

No. My sister does.

14. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?
Love Storms. Perfect would be watching them approaching you from a paddy field

15. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?

First Car is yet to come. First Bike I owned is Bajaj Pulsar. And First Car I drove would be Hindustan Motors’ Ambassador Mark IV.

16. FAVORITE DRINK?

Tea Any Time. Soda Sherbeth, Sharjah Shake and Panchasaara Vellam.(This you will find only in Vadakara where you call it Panchara Vellam. You add sugar onto water then add a few small onion pieces and take it. Awesome it is)
Hard Drinks : Bacardi White Rum, Bacardi Reserva Rum, Antiquity Blue Whiskey. Off late my favourites are Mansion House Brandy and Old Monk Rum. So cheap you know :) .

King Fisher Strong is Welcome anytime.

17. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD .....

19. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?

How about Pista Green?.

Cricket any time. Football on World Cup and Tennis on Grandslams.

22. ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU.

I took it up from Mathew. I know he is quite a jovial guy, but when I look at his profile pic and see that big mush I get scared :).

23. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED?

I am a Tharra fellow :). My bed is on the floor, on it sides I keep the book I am reading currently, my mobile and my spectacles. Under the bed, there would be the tons and tons of dust if our maid servant hasn’t cleaned that day. (That means I was still sleeping while she was cleaning the floor around my bed).

24. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN?

No. I don’t. There are a lot of bad things in me which many of the people around me don’t like.

25. MORNING PERSON, OR NIGHT OWL?

Both. I can sit late and watch any movie and read any book, and I can wake up early to go anywhere in the morning.

I don’t like Pie.

29. FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?

Panjasaara vellam is given in my place too without the onions. And even Honey vellam. In fact it is usually given when the guests refuse to take anything. Because the guest should not leave without partaking of anything from the house.Old world hospitality! I like it somehow! Good one. I liked your detailed description of favorite drinks! :)

Nice to read ahead.
Panchara vellam - with onions? or did u mean lemons?
Daey, you could stop those java (or whatever )codes after 5-6 tags.

Also, I thought you forgot to mention cities like Troy and Chicago :)

Good tags, altogether da. Keep it coming.

Silverine - Panchaara Vellam Rocks!! Onions add a real good taste to it. Yep Favourite drinks deserve a detailed description :)

Mathew - Nope. I love that Smell

Sree - Nee kudichittille. Its with Ceriya Ulli only. That code Was put only in MS IE. Stupid Browser. I use Firefox so everythign was ok. Anyway have chanegd now. I didn't live in Troy or Chicago. To me there was no life there. Philosophical ;)

Sree said...

No man. Im hearing/reading for the first time of such a kind. Will try next time :)

Yes, its gone now. Much better :)

Ha ha, true. But its where the first strike happend in the history of trade union workers all across the world. May be the 'life' is gone during the capitalist world

I loved reading this Dhanush... You're such a down to earth guy... no i don't mean you're a tharra :-)

I've jus come out of a long blogospherical hibernation...so am lifting your tag to mine and tag my friends in turn...

Dhanush said...

Sree - come home I will give loads of it :)
Preethika - I don't know how ppl get an impression that I am a down to earth guy. Even Seema felt about me as she wrote in her blog. Most of the ppl whom I meet tell me I have a QJaada :). May be because of my serious looks;) Thanks for taking this tag. Will come and comment soon.
