  2. Answer the questions from your nominators.
  3. Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.

My Answers to Kaushal:

  • What would you do if you got $50000?

Take a trip to wherever I can with all that money!

  • What is it that makes you unique?(Any three things)

My attitude, my values and my actions.

  • What is your favorite color? why?

Red and Black. Because they represent the strongest of emotions to me.

  • Outsider or insider?

Outsider.

  • Pet lover or hater?

Neither I guess. More of a stay-away and watch person.

  • Your views on a little pot aquarium in your room.

It would be nice. But then I don’t think I would be able to maintain it.

  • Arranged or Love marriage- preference?

Either ways, I hope I find someone perfect for me.

  • Success or Family- more important?

Family always.

  • Do you believe in past sins and re-birth philosophy?

I believe in Karma.

  • What is your favorite number? Why?

8. Because its my birthday.

  • Can you leave your country if you’ll get better future promises in any other country and settle down there?

It would be a lie to say I wouldn’t.

My Answers to Anand:

  • Which is your best memory?

I can’t pick one as such! Memories from my childhood and college are my best.

  • Do you feel you are at peace with yourself?

I don’t think so. I feel there is a lot I can achieve and that I haven’t pushed myself hard enough to attain those things. In a way, this is what motivates me to redefine my limits.

  • Who is your guide, guru or counselor?

Without doubt it is my Anna (elder brother). He is my go to person anytime anywhere. I know he will be honest and sincere to tell me what I need to know and not what I want to hear.

  • What makes you feel very good?

Accomplishing something I have wanted to or finding happiness in doing something outside my comfort zone

  • Which quality or habit in your life you like the most about yourself?

I am straight forward and I call it like I see it. Even though this often means I have to face consequences, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

My family, my feminist friends and individuals from the web who help me learn new lessons from either own lives or mine.

A perpetual feeling.

I am never afraid to step out of my comfort zone!

It has. I have read so many remarkable articles on so many blogs! It not just broadened my outlook but also helped me improve as a writer.

Getting uncomfortable!
