Today, I’m here with my first ever nomination… “Wanna Know You Better!!” A blogger friend of mine was kind enough to make me a nominee and in his words I have been condemned to answer his questions. Well, he has got some real humour!😂
I was nominated in early September last year and now it’s May end! You can do the calculations if you want but I don’t fancy being a calculator…! 😁🙏 Due to certain unavoidable reasons, I wasn’t able to embrace this challenge earlier (sounds formal no! 😅) In simple words, I had my 12th class books staring at me whenever I tried to open the blog… So, I chose to stare at them instead!
Alright now, shall we begin? Being a “good” girl, I will now do as the Rule Book says…
This challenge “Wanna Know You Better!” has been started by a blogger Riya! I just found her blog when I got to know about the challenge. Do pay a visit at Riya’s Blog. I’m sure you won’t regret that because she is indeed a versatile writer!
Thanking The Pensieve
The day I had seen the name of this blog for the first time, “The Pensieve” I knew it would be an interesting one, and yes I was right! But be careful, because once you’ll press the above link you’ll enter a beautiful world and won’t want to come out of that! Hey! But you’re gonna visit, right?
Many many thanks to Dr. Soumitra Patil of “The Pensieve” first of all for nominating me and secondly for confirming that he is ‘he’ because I’d assumed him ‘she’! 😂 My apologies Dr.! Girls are like that, they find a good blog and think it should be a ‘she’ not ‘he’ like Hermione was all set to believe that ‘The Half Blood Prince” was a princess actually! So, I’m no different! 🤗
Your Questions, My Answers!
Get, Set, Go………..
Q.1 The reason/ inspiration behind your blog.
Well, there was so much inside me and in a yellow folder of mine, so I decided to pour the contents into a pensieve like yours so that even others could enjoy it! The geography teacher of mine Anindita ma’am, had given me this idea actually! You can check her blog here.
Q.2 Sun? Or Moon?
My pet name is “Bhanu” which means Sun! And without Sun, Moon can’t shine at night! So, I’m in for “Bhanu”! Though a joke is there that Moon is more essential than Sun because in daytime we’ve light! 😅 Crazy isn’t it?
Q.3 Are you a night owl? Or are you a morning person?
I’m both and I’m neither! Because when I go to school I’m definitely a morning person who because of sleeping late at night gets late for school almost daily, and then have to endure the taunts of the guard having scary handlebar moustache! It’s not that easy to persuade him! I’d even offered him laddoos on my b’day but despite my bribes I and my brother were once sent to home straightaway from school for being late by 5 min… 🙄Well he has got a point that I’ve got to get punctual. I think I will try…😄
Q.4 What did you want to be when you were little?
I used to sing this
“Achche bachche rote nahi,
Apni aankhein khote nahi
Inhin aankhon se padna hai
Doctor baabu banana hai!”
(Good kids don’t cry, they don’t lose their eyes because these would help them to study and become a good doctor in future)
But I’m in Non Med so LOL!
Q.5 Any fictional character you think you relate with the most. And why?
I’ve already mentioned her name before… Hermione! I think I’ve got that slight air of impatience, knack for reading books and never-ending desire to visit library and some years ago I even had her bushy hair though jet black like Harry’s !
Q.6 How do you deal with stress?
I listen to BK sister Shivani! Those who need answers to their problems just search her on You Tube and then immerse yourself in her divine teachings!
Q.7 Which one of my posts is your favourite? And why?
You’ve got a plethora of amusing posts but if you ask me to pick one, I’ll say “Energy!” Being a science student I felt very connected to it and you catalysed me through that post! (Check out the post and my comment over there.)
Q.8 You are the last remaining person on this planet. What would you do?
I’ll sort a banyan tree and would try to do what Dhruv had! (Check out Hindu mythology to know about this great soul)
Q.9 Do you believe that everything happens for a reason? Why so?
Well yes! God has his own plans to make us learn through even the simplest of events… Through our own actions, we allow Him to formulate a ‘bhagya’ (fate) for us! The products we receive in our lives depend on the reactants we choose! Each soul in this Universe is linked to other souls… We’ve some unfulfilled tasks and to complete them we meet each other, do our ‘karma’ and that decides our destiny!
Q.10 What is your definition of ‘true happiness’?
I think when you stop feeling too much bad or sorrowful for something or when you stop jumping with mirth at your achievements… When you attain a constant state which is peaceful and satisfying letting you see your inner world… That day you would be the happiest because you will radiate an unflinching blissful aura then! Well, that requires self control! Maybe someday I would be able to do that… 🙂😇
