Weird Questions Meme. Blog marathon post 5.

It's been quite a while since I did memes on my blog. So for today's post,  I thought I would do one  from Sunday Stealing as today is a Sunday. Besides, the questions also are different from the ones I usually get in my Interviews :) (I get tired of answering the same questions over and over! "How did you get into writing?" "Where do you get your inspiration from" "How do you manage doing so many things." "What are your future plans" "What is your book about" etc etc)

Here goes the weird questions meme  from Sunday stealing:


What is your ring size?
I have no idea! I wear three rings though. One belongs to my dad (hence a Man's ring) and one is a diamond one gifted by Satish, and the third is a kind of a stone.

How often do you wear jewelry?  
Every day mostly. But on some days, I don't.


When was the last time you consumed alcohol?  
Last evening. (and no it wasn't Vodka.).


Any big plans for the summer?  
 Summer is still a year away.


What is your favorite comfort food?  
Curd rice! I can eat it anytime.


Do you prefer broccoli or asparagus?  
 Broccoli please.



What color are your bedroom walls?  
 Pale Cream  and they have some absolutely marvelous paintings by Niall Young.

With whom do you live?  
Family..Husband, kids, dog and a guinea pig :)

Which Star Wars movie is your favorite?

I hate Star wars.

How about Harry Potter?  
 I hate Harry Potter too.

What was the last movie you saw in theaters?  
yeh jawaani hai deewani

Did you get the popcorn or candy?
Pop-corn.  I hate candy. (just realised that i seem to hate most things most people like- for instance, Star-wars, Harry Potter and Candy)

What is the most romantic text in your inbox?  
 Do people text anymore? They use only whatsapp and chaton and bbm, I thought. I don't know about 'most romantic text'  but I did get a marriage proposal on FB recently. I laughed my head off.

Have you ever played miniature golf on a date?  
Never even played normal golf. last time I played Golf was on a video game.

What’s a phrase you overuse?  
'Lissssen..you aren't listening' is something I use often which reveals a lot about how much my family actually listens when I say something. No wonder I write so many books. At least my readers listen to me. heh heh :D


Do you always use good grammar?

Only when I am writing something. In messages I use words like ain't and coz and U.

Do you have an accent or a speech impediment?  

Wrote a whole post on Accents here

What did you eat today?  

 Upma for breakfast , pav-bhaji for lunch and Chinese for dinner. I made the breakfast and dinner. Ate out for the afternoon meal.



What do you do at work?  
I dream and imagine stuff.

Do you know the rules to any sports?
I should think so. I played basketball at National level many years back. Unless of course they have changed the rules since my time. heh heh :D

Do you prefer to watch or play sports?  
Definitely play.

What is your favorite kind of hat to wear?  
If I had to wear a hat, it would be a cowboy hat.

Do you pray?  
Yes. Mostly Every day.


To whom do you pray?  
To the Universe, to the higher powers, to Lord Vishnu, To Infant Jesus, To Goddess at Chottanikara temple in Kerala, to my dad.

What is the closest mountain to your house?  

Doddabeta Mountain (8650 feet) ,which is about 197 kms from Bangalore, which is where I now live.


What size engine is in your vehicle?  
 2ZR-FE, Gasoline, 4 cylinder inline.16 Valve, DOHC, Dual VVT-i(Dual Variable) 1798 cm³ (cc)
(Oh how I love google :D )

What do you need to do tomorrow?
 Need to  walk, exercise, write, create, cook, read and try to be more happy.

  5. I sometime feel,after reading all your post and book.. I know everything about you( that a fan should know :-P ) .. But then you manage to surprise me everytime. :-) .. Its always nice to know about you. Undoubtedly a different set of question. I am sure next time someone interviews you.. They will sure get some inspiration from here:-)

    loved all your answer..

  6. Sparkle passed away peacefully in his sleep. RIP sparkle. Snowy is as active as ever.

    @Hanni: No--the ring was suggested by someone who has an awesome and a well-paying job, at an MNC. Astrology is his hobby and he is extremely good at it. He did not charge a single paisa--and hence the possiblity of 'fraud' for his benefit is ruled out completely--and yes, the ring has helped a lot.

    @Nitu: Awww..Thanks and hugs.

    @Ariel: :) Welcome to the club :)

    1. Oh Preeti. I think I wasn't clear in my last comment. I'm sorry about that. I never meant 'someone' suggested it to you to you for 'money'. What I intended to say was a little sarcastic! :) you've mentioned that you can get angry badly, so I teased asking if ur close ones suggested you wear it:) I hope there isn't anything rude in this comment, coz nothing was intended. Its just a casual comment.

Why you are making a mistake if you don't speak up about #MeToo

The last few days have been tumultuous for everyone in urban India. If you are a working professional, or have worked at some point in your life, or if you strongly believe in gender equality,  it is hard to not get affected by the #Metoo movement. The #Metoo movement has taken off in India, like the  metaphorical snowball. I too, like many of you,  have been following closely, in shocked silence, as it has been unfolding. I can't tell you how happy I am that women in India, are standing up in solidarity, taking back their dignity.

Several  powerful men have been named.The stories have come POURING out.
I shall not go into details of the men named or the incidents here, as it is all over the media.

When something happens in your field of interest, it is natural that it affects you more than the incidents that happen in other fields. For me, what has been particularly disturbing was that the names from the field of literature that were coming out as well.

Earlier, in press in…

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…

5 easy and useful tips to help you achieve your goals.

Dreams are goals with a deadline. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. I am a huge believer of these two statements.

Many a time, I have been asked this question
'How do you do so many things? How do you focus on your goals? How are you so dedicated?'

Many have written to me asking me to share my routine/ time-management/how I organise my day. So here goes:

Currently I am doing a challenge called Intkober where you do 31 drawings in Ink, in 31 days. The prompts are given in advance. Click on the link to know more. Thousands of artists all over the world do it, each year. I post my drawings on myInstagram art handle.

This is in addition to my writing which I do daily. I also make a portrait every single day, apart from Inktober.

I guess, to most people who see this, it looks like a LOT of things and they wonder how I manage it. Here are five  things I do, which help me. (and I hope they help you too)

1. Define the goals.

At the beginning of each month, I write down (in a dia…
