If I were a..Blog marathon post 6



This tag was actually a trap which I fell into at Life Begins'  post :-) She had listed things about her beautifully and I was reading and smiling and boom--the last line said I had been tagged just because I read it :-) I had promised her I' d do this tag.


Here are my answers.



If I were a month, I'd be December definitely and undoubtedly. I love this month. (not hard to guess why!)


If I were a day of the week, I'd be Thursday.(I got married on a Thursday, my son was born on a Thursday and Thursday also holds the promise of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, yet to come!)


If I were a time of day, I'd be 11.30 p.m: This is the time by which my family sleeps and I get a few delicious hours all to myself which I really look forward to as I'd have finished all my duties as a mother and a wife :-)

If I were a season, I'd be Spring. I totally love the flowers in bloom.

If I were a planet, I'd be Jupiter. That is my ruling planet as per astrology and somehow I love the largeness of Jupiter.

If I were a sea animal, I'd be a Dolphin. They are gorgeous and so intelligent.

If I were a direction, I'd be ..hmmm..I guess North as that is where the Himalayas are :-)

If I were a piece of furniture, I'd be a nice cozy bed :-)


If I were a liquid, I'd be Vodka for sure :-) Heady, Intoxicating and addictive :-)

If I were a tree, I'd  hate it!! I cannot imagine being rooted to the same spot for years!


If I were a tool, I'd be a high power drill ;-)

If I were an element, I'd be...I hate chemistry--aaargh. Element reminds me of the periodic table and the nightmares it gave me. No elements for me!

If I were a gemstone, I'd be emerald or ruby. I like red and green. I would NOT be a diamond.

If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a Jazz trombone.

If I were a color, I'd be black. Somehow these days that is my favourite colour.


If I were a emotion, I'd be a deep throated chuckle  that rings through your soul and makes you savour the warmth of laughter long after it is over :-)

If I were a fruit, I'd be a raw green mango with salt and chilli powder :-)

If I were a sound, I'd be THE song in someone's heart

If I were a car, I'd be a McLaren F1.

If I were food, I'd be plain white rice.

If I were a taste, I'd be the taste of cold water on a hot summers day.

If I were a scent, I'd be Eternity by Calvin Klein

If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be my six inch  wedge heels :-)

If I were a bird, I'd be an eagle

And If I were to tag people I will tag whoever wants to do this!

  3. You would NOT be plain white rice! You would be some exotic dish with a variety of colors and flavors thrown in... you would be so tantalizing to the tongue!

    I don't know you in person but your blog is an excellent insight into the kind of person you are - for an almost regular reader like me. You have this multi faceted, creative personality which is so not plain rice!

  4. " If I were a sound, I'd be the song in someone's heart." that was the top answer according to me. other answers too were honest but likely to change with age. You have already become the song of many cheerful hearts. THANKS!

  7. Good one
    Too long for me to put answers for each.

    BUT Yes!, I can use this info to do social engineering around you and get your passwords ;)

    So whoever is doing this next, let me know. I'll try to get some money transfered from your account to mine :D

  8. Rohit: I just read whatever I wrote :) NONE of my passwords are even remotely associated with anything here :-) In any case you are the one who has taught me to make passwords secure :-)

    Sparkling: Don't take everything literally and to the dot ;-) :-) Make it 12.30 :P :)

  9. Aish_nini: Thanks :)

    Roshan: A fabulous compliment indeed! Thank you!

    Bhavya: heheh. I may seem so. But I am really very simple at heart :-) I do looooove white rice. Especially when I see construction workers working whole day and eating it with just some salt and chilli powder (and no vegetables or curry) I value it all the more.Thank you so much for that truly fabulous compliment.

    Mihir: Thank you

    Life begins: I must that you :)

We have already started receiving pictures from as far as Kedarkanth. I am absolutely loving it, and it is so moving and wonderful to see all the pictures.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me …

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
