Answers to PENCHANTRESS’s Questions
1.What is your Native language?(I’m really curious about this one!)
Its Kannada . I am a south-indian 🙂
2.In what profession are you? If you are a student then, what is your field of study?
I am a software engineer .
3.Who is your favorite author and why?
My favorite author keeps changing with time. My recent favorite one is Khaled Hosseini
4. What inspired you to start blogging?
I just wanted to open up and pour out all the thoughts without getting afraid of getting patronized or judged. Coz when in person i would see people’s expressions but here i dont ..bwahaha
5.Do you publicize your Blog or Just use it as your personal space?
Not as of now. It is very much my personal space. That’s the reason i haven’t told any of my people about my blog
6.Do you really read the blogs of the Bloggers you follow?
Yes! Very religiously. Because there is absolutely brilliant content spread across various blog posts here. I never want to miss it.
7.What other hobbies do you indulge in?
Every year i make it a habit to indulge in a new hobby so that life doesn’t become too mundane for me. So for this year it is urban farming and learning a new language. I haven’t come a long way with the language learning. But i have grown peas, green gram, tomatoes and garlic at home as of now 🙂
8.Do you stand up for what’s right all the time even if it invites a lot of debate Or do you just go with the flow and try to stay safe?
It depends on the situation. Its 50-50 . 50% of the time i have stood up for what is right (Ex : In India when you are travelling in a public transport, if you come out of it with your dress still as ironed and pressed as how it was then it is a miracle 😀 . So there was an instance where a middle aged man was groping some girl . She raised her voice and he became quiet. After some time he did the same with her and it happened to be in my sight . I started screaming at him for his behavior. The entire bus came to silence including that girl and it looked as if the fight was only between me and him . So i stand up for what i feel is in my control and will not keep hush like the other passengers there thinking that its none of my business
Now there is an another instance where one guy was cornered by 6 guys and was getting thrashings. and there was this huge group of people standing there and doing absolutely nothing. I really really wanted to go and stop that fight . But i knew if i had gone then it would have been 1 boy and 1 girl getting cornered and thrashed by 6 guys 😛 . So if i find i am physically strong enough to stop the fight i would do it.
Now coming to debates. I do give my opinions on a topic and when i listen to others’ opinion i mean i literallyyyy listen to them and i get influenced by their opinions and will start thinking “Oh ya!! this could also be right !!” . So i am not that good at that and i am working on it and this is one of the reasons i started this blog . Trust me my bandwidth of voicing out opinions has increased to a greater extent 🙂
9.Who is the biggest inspiration in your life?
I admire a lot of people. But frankly speaking it has ended in “admiration” and not moved forward for ” inspiration”
10.Tell us one incident when you laughed your heart out while people thought you had gone mad.
Ok !! A friend of mine was telling me an incident that had happened with her friend.
This girl had gone to one of her relative’s house . She could not control her bowel movements after lunch and went to do potty (Ya thats right ! Its a poop story. Please go to the next question if you are having food while reading this ! Disclaimer Alert !!) . She did potty.But the flush was not working . She has all her relatives outside. Now she cannot wait for long as her family is ready to leave nor can she tell them . She took a lot of water in a bucket and poured it in the commode. But for her misfortune Mr.Poop was not ready to leave his place and go down the drain. so what she did next is she took a empty mug, took Mr.Poopbody from the commode in it and threw it outside the window. Now it should have stopped here. But it did not. Mr.Poopbody wanted a seat. So he flew and fell exactly on cycle seat.(Trust me i am not making this up) . Some guy came .I do not know why he was not able to make out the different between poop and anything in the world. He just took it in his bare hands and threw it. I did not know for whom i was laughing . The girl or the guy with cycle ..
Please don’t unfollow me for this disgusting story 😛
11.Say, you’ve been through a really bad time, how crazy could you get to pick yourself up?
Sometimes i am a switch. It is just on and off. I can pick all of my pieces in less time. But some other times i am a person whom i myself cannot tolerate.Oh god!!! i go cribbing and cribbing and cribbing for months together for no reason. Trust me.,. For some petty reason i can act as if i have entire world’s burden on me , i am the most unluckiest one and all those bullshit. ! But when something major happens i will have a straight face, all the patience and wisdom in the world and go around counselling other people who is sympathetic towards me .. 😀 😀
