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 :)

    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 :)

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
