CPR for comatose Blog.

If personalities were colours, then the trait of self-obsession would be the new 'pink'! I honestly need to get a grip and move on to other things in life...but till then, I might as well indulge in good ol 'pouring out my soul' rituals in these tag things!

4 places I've lived in :

Bangalore, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad.

4 TV shows that I like to watch :

Madhur Jafferey's Flavours of India, New Detectives on Discovery Channel (I dont think it is aired anymore though) , Small Wonder (in English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil...bring it on in any language, it's always a delight!) and a certain anonymous Hindi serial that I am rather ashamed of admitting on the world wide web.

4 places that I've been to, on vacation :

Hm? My most memorable? Shimla-Nainital-Devprayag-Haridwar-Rishikesh '97 (One trip) , Durgapur (West Bengal) '96 , Goa '03 and Singapore '02.

4 Favourite food items :
  • Rasam rice with Papad.
  • Dessert Pizzas
  • Cinnamon Toast
  • Gulab Jamun with Ice Cream.
4 places I would rather be :
  • Home (I'm not complaining though. I just wish it was closer)
  • Burkina Faso (on Mondays mostly)
  • Egypt
  • Greece
4 websites that I visit everyday :
  • Hotmail (Yeah, some of us still use the thing)
  • Gmail
  • Delhi University website (for a long long time)
  • My Blog. (To re-read my stale posts.)
4 things that I hope to do before I die :

Bring a smile on a face everyday. (very Miss-India-ish no? But I did bring a smile on a little kid's face today, and was a beautiful feeling.)
Go backpacking across Europe.
Make the perfect Chocolate cake. (and pancakes, while I'm at it)
Write a book.

4 novels I wish I was reading for the first time :
  • Roald Dahl's Matilda
  • R.K. Narayan's Malgudi Days
  • Anuja Chauhan's The Zoya Factor
  • The entire Enid Blyton series.
4 movies that I can watch over and over again... :
  • You've Got Mail :-) Isnt it one of the most delightful movies ever?
  • Andaz Apna Apna
  • Mozhi
  • Ganeshana Maduve (ever watched this Anant Nag flick? It beats the socks off all Kannada movies!)
Do I need to tag this to anyone? I dont think people have been reading this blog anymore anyway....the paltry few who did read it might have given it up for good thinking it is history....until I find some effective revival strategy for my comatose blog, I'll leave it open for anyone to tag and be tagged.
