10 Day You Challenge- Day 1: 10 Secrets


Preeti started doing this series of tags which is to posts interesting things about her. The idea seems interesting to be on the blog; so I start with 10 secrets (things which the readers of the blog won’t know) about myself-

1- I once disposed off my school test notebooks when I got terrible marks and later claimed to the teacher that the notebooks were stolen. (I was caught 3 months later when one of the neighbors whose empty house I had thrown away the notebooks came to inspect the house and duly returned the notebooks to my parents after spotting the name)

2- I have a sweet tooth; it is very difficult for me to resist something sweet. Some years back when my weight wasn’t a concern I would not even throw away the sweet syrup from the gulabjamuns and rashogollas but rather drink them or have them with bread or chapatti

3- On the same note, I can have almost everything vegetarian with bread, which includes things like chocolate, butter jam, fruits, sugar syrup, lentils, milk, cereals etc. I can eat bread for 7 days a week 3 times a day.

4- I have never been a sportsman or followed any sports religiously until I started working and started playing squash and following cricket, and tennis.

5- I wrote my first poem when I was in class fourth, my class teacher told to my parents that I am good in writing. Though I couldn’t figure out what one can do by writing poems. Thankfully I didn’t choose it as a career given the state of English poetry writers in India and sadly I don’t have a copy of the first poem I wrote.

6- The following sets are in my wish buy list for ages- Calvin & Hobbes, Dilbert and Amar Chitra Katha.

7- I hate watching TV.

8- I created an Online game for my college fest which got some 1 million hits on the day of its launch. The entire experience of designing that game was so close to me that I still quote it as one of the most satisfying experience.

9- I have never touched a drop of liquor till date.

10- I hate people who do not take ownership and responsibility of their work.

    Ha ha ha Omg I actually did that first point! I was scared to death with geometry so I had literally hidden my Geometry exercise book in the cup board way below other stuffs. When my exams came up my mom was furious that the whole paper has a section that I haven’t studied n she hasn’t seen the book too.When it all came in front of her, omg i was ….i still imagine so afraid but then I actually hid that book :O

      @Himadri: ROFL!!! I can totally relate to what you did. Now that we look back to incidents like these, they are not only funny but also makes me wonder “What was I thinking.”

    Dear Prats……… I have been waiting for your latest blog post for quite some time now. This seems to be a good idea. This is how your fans and followers would get to know you better. I too will follow this idea. This post has given me fodder for my next post. Keep up the good work.

    @9: ahem,a man who doesn’t drink and is a man enough to accept that 🙂 *bol kis film ka dialogue hai?* 😉

      @Scribby: I have heard this dialogue and felt so appropriate being applied to me. (though I am not able to remember the movie, was it Pyaar ke Side Effects or One of the Madhur Bhandarkar movies?)

      Yeah I could have been a bard, thankfully I didn’t otherwise this blog would have been full of limericks 🙂

        the dialogue is from the movie ‘Hum-Tum’ said by Isha Koppikar for Jimmy Shergil 🙂 ghanti baji ? 😀

          @Scribby: Oh yeeeessss…. How could I forget that… Its one of my all time favorites and I could recite the movie by dialogues…. damn I guess I need to see it once again 🙁 Thanks for reminding me of it *searches for the movie in the hard drive*

    Very interesting secrets!! You have a sweet tooth too!! That’s a new one… sweet syrup with bread/chapati! My mom used to knead the dough with this syrup and then make either parathas or roll it as a roti and cut it in small pieces and then fry them.

    Will come back to check out the rest of the Nine posts of this challenge!! 🙂
