An alphabet Meme

This is a meme from Sunday stealing  which I found interesting enough to do. Most memes are the same stuff that one seems to have done a countless time, if one has been blogging for a few years (which I have. I started this blog in October 2006!)
This one is an alphabet meme  which is the first alphabet meme of 2011.  I have tried to include lots of pictures to make it interesting :)

Here goes:


A is for Age:  



B is for Beer of choice: 

Vodka :P I don't drink Beer :)

C is for Career:
Writer and Artist

D is for favourite Drink:
 
Same as B :)

E is for Essential item you use everyday:  

My  custom made  powered sunglasses. (I have sensitive eyes--they eater easily :-))



F is for Favourite song at the moment:  



G is for favourite Game:








H is for Home town:



I don't really have a 'hometown'. (have never lived in a place for more than three consecutive years) I'm a true Indian.



I is for Instruments you play:


Learnt to play a few tunes on the Keyboard but cannot claim to 'play an instrument'

J is for favourite Juice:


Don't like juices much. Too sweet for me. :P :)

K is for Kids:
Two darlings (well most of the time :-))

L is for Last kiss:
A little while ago from my daughter.

M is for marriage: .

I complete SIXTEEN years of being married (to the same guy  heh heh) this year.

N is for full Name:

Once for typhoid was hospitalised 17 days and twice for my deliveries of both children.

P is for phobias:
Snakes--I am petrified of them.

Q is for quote:

 
R is for biggest Regret:

For saying some stupid things which seemed terribly important at that time. It truly does not matter now. Wish I could take them back, but they have been said. The spoken word once uttered never can be taken back. It was a big lesson I learnt, in controlling my acerbic tongue.

S is for sports:
I am a total sports person. Used to play Basketball at National level (a long time back) and also volleyball and cricket (yes I can bowl a perfect leg spin) too. I swim too. Used to be an athlete too.

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it.

It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.

That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…
