A-to-Z of me #WritingWednesdays

I came across this interesting theme A-to-Z of me on Shalini’s and Geetika’s blogs. It involves stating 26 random facts about me and I thought of taking it up. Thus, here I go.

A- Age: 35

B- Biggest fear: Somebody stamping the word ‘sanskaar’ into my face. This word is generally stamped to despise or negate other’s behaviours and actions.

C- Current time: 9:51 am.

D- Drink you last had: A cup of adrak wali chai (ginger tea).

E- Every day starts with: Waking up at 5 am. Sitting by myself in the quiet for half an hour with a cup of hot water mixed with lime juice and honey.

F- Favourite Song: This is not an easy one for me since I do not follow latest trending music. I am kind of forever trapped in the hindi movie songs of the 60s era .One which comes to my mind right now is ‘Kuch dil ne kaha, kuch bhi to nahin‘ from the movie Anupama.

G- Ghosts, are they real?: Yes. Let’s just not think about them.

H- Hometown: By the virtue of owning a house, Delhi.

By heart, I have changed cities every 9 years so there is no town which I can call home.

I- In love with:  My son, silence, blogging and yoga.

J- Jealous of:  People who have so much on their platter and yet they manage them all with a smile and an open heart.

K- Killed someone: Not anyone in the last couple of years. Previously the casualty used to be my husband (only in my mind though). I am stereotypical this way.

L- Last time you cried: I cried profusely in June last year. The crying continued for most part of the month and then I decided no more tears now. What was the matter? Don’t ask me.

M- Middle name: None

N- Number of siblings: 1.

O- One wish: I have many wishes. For now the wish is to get a professionally done self-hosted blog absolutely free of cost.

P- Person you last called: That person is always my mother. I just now realised hers is the only number I dial.

Q- Question you’re always asked: Only one kid?

R- Reason to smile: My son’s chatter, getting enough silence in the day to keep my batteries charged, having fabulous and lots of books to read,  interacting with wonderful people virtually, knowing quite a few like-minded people which proves I am not an alien anymore.

S- Sounds that annoy you: I used to like the sound of azaan from a nearby mosque at various times of the day. It served as a reminder to take a pause and think of divinity. But for the past few days it seems there is another mosque which has come up in the vicinity and the sounds of the 2 loudspeakers and mixed up prayers is not soothing at all.

T- Time you woke up: 5 am

V- Vacation destination: Favourite so far is Lake District, Cumbria in North west England. Wish list is Lucerne, Switzerland.

W- Worst habit: I am too much laid back.

X- X-Rays you’ve had: My heels.

Y- Your favourite food: Sandwiches. Easy to make, tasty to eat.

Z- Zodiac sign: Gemini. Yes I have 2 faces.

Wasn’t it fun? Would you like to take this on?

If you do, please share with me and leave in the comments box below.

    Wow, this A-Z list sounds very interesting! And, that’s a neat list of things revealing so much about yourself! I think F is my favourite too…all 60s songs and that one in particular – “Kuch dil ne kaha..” is among my top favs too (co-incidence, yet again!!!) I too love the quiet time in the mornings, though I have it only on weekends (week days this luxury is lost as i have to rush to get lunch/breakfast sorted before son is off to school)

      It is fun to talk about ourselves once in a while, the self which is not a parent. Co – incidences seem to be in vogue these days. This song is melodious and shares my silent sentiments 😀 I spent this morning listening to this one and other songs from the Black and White era.
