This tag is from Aquarian Lady. I need to list down my five memorable meals. So here they are…btw..there are umpteen memories when it comes to food..but rules are rules! 🙂

  • The first such meal which always pops up in my mind is the road side paranthas near Delhi University. This road side shop gets opened at 10 PM in night and shuts at 5 AM in the morning. And what amaze me is that it is always crowded even at 4 AM! No doubt that the vicinity is unhygienic and so are the paranthas. But those were the carefree days when we were in the university. I don’t miss this by any chance if I happen to be in Delhi.
  • I cannot cook. This is what I used to think till I made this rice and daal on a Saturday afternoon almost a year back. It was simply amazing! No..it was! I did take instructions from my mother over the phone. I cant forget this amazing lunch I made.
  • This dates back when we were together. She was really hungry and I only had eggs and cheese at my place. There I was, wearing the apron and all set to make cheese omelette for her. Of course there was a disclaimer that I am not responsible for any consequences! J Okay! I did make it really good, but there was something which was missing. What was it??! Then it just hit me…I had a packet of Frito Lays too. And there was the topping as well. When I served her this…do I need to say more!
  • This one does not comes under “good memories”..but I could never forget this experience. My first buffet in a five star hotel. It was free (read someone else was paying for it) and I was with a few girls (so impression does matter).  I confess I didn’t have the best culinary skills (not now as well) and all of the others were pro in it. What a lasting impression I made!!!
  • This memory always comes with a tinge of sadness for the usual reason .She can’t cook..she knew that..and she dint know anything about cooking. But she made Maggie for me….coz when I was about to meet her I dint have any meal and I dint want to eat outside nor order anything from outside. That was my best Maggie and til date she does not accept it.

Well…I am tagging:

Shilpa, Nishi, Shruti, Divsi, Neilima, UL, Bydegrees……………………………

Ek…do…teen!!! :)

Shilpa from “A rose is a rose is a rose!” tagged me to do this.

If life could be defined in numbers this is what my life would appear to be.

Okay! It looked easy when I read it here…and I realized how difficult it was when I started doing it. Trust me..it took so much of time…gosh! I wonder who comes up with such novel tags!

1 Life to live every single moment. I don’t believe in the concept of seven lives.

2 Heart-breaks. Yes..actually! But I am still strong 🙂

3 Best years of my life spent in Delhi.

4 Eyes I need to see things clearly. Yes! I wear specs. Not many know!

5 is the best number for me. At any given point of time..I would like to choose 5 as a number. No reason..bas yun hi! We are a family of five..Mom, Dad and two elder sisters.

6 years I stayed in hostel eating the same rice and daal every single day.

7 reminds me of 7th Standard when I failed in two subjects. Actually failing would be an understatement. I failed miserably in both subjects scoring single digit out of 100.

8 is my birthday number. 8th December

9 pairs of sexy blue denims I own! Proud owner indeed! 🙂

 10 hours of minimum work everyday 😦 (Okay..this 10 number was a desperate attempt..It took hell lot of time to attach something significant to it!)

So folks…are you ready to take this up? Well..don’t run..I have 3 more tags pending! 🙂

Without any further thinking..let me tag first the tag lovers.I tag Rani , Neilima, Nishi. Then..lemme shake up my few folks who are in deep slumber for quite sometime now..Ashwin. (you better do this!), Zack (He is the tag buddy), Gayathri (there is one pending..so this is to pressurise you more :)), Soumya (The Mandrake Man!).

For those I have not tagged..dont be happy..you all will be tagged soon! 🙂

Here I finally completes the pending tags. 🙂

First tag:  “5 Lesser known things about me”  tagged by Shubh.  (Wasn’t this supposed to be “5 Things I love About Myself” ?? 🙂

Okay…one disclaimer! All the points mentioned here are true, however the fellow bloggers should not run away from my blog after reading this 🙂

1)      I keep every single SMS received for sometime (few days) whether it is a forward or a personal one. And very frequently I revisit my inbox, reads the messages and delete those which are becomes irrelevant and are absurd forwards. Due to this I bring back myself to old conversations and able to save those messages which still brings smile on my face. Today there are more than 300 messages in my inbox dated since last one year (When I bought my new phone).

I also don’t delete the sent messages immediately. However, when I am getting bored like waiting for someone..or travelling alone in a bus..I revisit the sent items and start deleting after reading. I delete every single one of them and don’t keep any messages in sent item.

Weird.  I know. I am weird! 🙂

2)      I don’t believe in visiting temples to pay homage to God. I mean. The idea of visiting temple never inspired me. It really bewilders me why people throngs to temples like Tirupati, Badri Nath, etc after facing such hardship to reach the final darshan point. Entirely my opinion. And I don’t propagate anyone not to do this. This is entirely personal to respective individuals.

Not many people know this and particularly I hide this from my Mom 🙂

 3)      I am an epitome of impatience (Okay..I exaggerated…but you got the point..right!!). I can’t wait for good things to happen. To me the adage “sabra ka phal meetha hota hai” fails to apply. And its not that I dint try to be little patient..but eventually never succeeded. But as the way I am..I never stop trying.

4)      I dunno how you folks will take this. But I have terrific (read worst) mood swings. And people who are very very close to me feel the burns of it. And I do regret it.  But…..

5)      Okay…too many negatives…lets talk about one good thing lesser known. 🙂  I cant take compliments very comfortably. I go red..sometimes behaves awkwardly. I mean, its little hard for me to accept compliment gracefully. Can’t I say that I am modest?!  🙂


Second Tag:  “Show us something but would never spend the money to buy”  tagged by Shilpa, our originator of FB Community. For those who would like to have a look as to what this FB community is..visit this place. 🙂

Okay…this one is real difficult. It real tough to bring out one thing which I aspire but would never spend the money to buy.However, I would make a sincere attempt. And trust me I am making a sincere attempt coz I have been thinking for quite some time now. 🙂

I have a fetish for glares (even though I only own two of them)! I would love to have the most expensive (horribly expensive) and the hottest Dolce & Gabbana designer sunglass..but would never buy it.

It is unbelievably priced at $383, 609. I mean..WTF!!  🙂

So here I duly completed my tags. I would like to tag this to wake up few of my fellow bloggers – definitely Ashwin, Zack, Bydegrees…….folks, where are you all?! 🙂

All my FB folks are already tagged. So I am sparing them 🙂

I would definitely like to tag Gayathri, Sheba this time. And of course, Rani. (She did the book tag amazingly fast 🙂 )

Saima…you are a busy bee now. But still I am tagging. 🙂

Indyeah..it would be great if you can take the first tag. By the way, that 15 books wala tag is pending 😦

Saturday night. Nope. Saturday very very late night. Rather Sunday early morning. Its drizzling. Cool Breeze. And a serene night.

Best time to light a nicotine stick. The moment I lit it up, a thought came in my mind. When did I take my first puff?The day when I gave my IIFT entrance (which was such a disaster), I was sitting outside the exam centre with my friend. He lit up one and I asked for it. Just out of curiosity..u know!!

Oh! I thought..lets do this! Take one drag and let your mind loose and wander, and see what thoughts comes to your mind randomly. Cool. Right..huh!! So lets see.

 Second drag. The day I landed in Delhi for my graduation. What a feeling it was! This was the opportunity for me. Where I will go? What I will do? Which college I will get into? Thousand things were rummaging my mind.

Third drag. My first job as a call centre executive in one of the leading BPOs in Gurgaon. This job taught me so many things which I carry till date in my life. It showed me back, what I was and there was so much to be done to improve myself.

Third one. My hostel days. Why I bothered my parents so much to put me into boarding?! I still wonder!

 Fourth. Thinking about parents; Its been almost 13 years now I am staying away from my home due to my studies and work. 13 years.,and the years will keep adding. I am so lucky to have them, who have sacrificed so much to find me where I am today. I think, I would be visiting home soon.

 Fifth. Its been so long I had not heard her voice.

 Sixth drag. I should only think about good things. There are so many good things happened with me. I am a happy guy!

 Seventh & the last one. Why the hell it finished off so early!! Seems like its time to hit the bed. 🙂

 This is weird. But that’s me. The silent night sets this kind of weird things…you know!

Call it my nature or my destiny, why do I always find myself caught at the wrong place?! Even if things come as an opportunity, the odds are always high against me. I completely understand and more than experienced to realize that the taste of success is much better when the odds are high. But not everytime..man!!!

Anyway, an opportunity is an opportunity. There is only one way out – take it, exploit it and do the best one can. And that what I will achieve to do.

Meanwhile, I realized how difficult it is to keep quite (read less talking)! I am down with sore throat and my voice box decided to shutdown. Result – Amrit is suffering. I am unable to speak much .and trust me its very very difficult to keep quite or speak less. Aaaarrgghhh!!!
