Rescued by a tag

Thanks , Srijith, for tagging me when I was wondering what to write for my blog. I am amazed at the skills you and Shankari possess , be it story or poem.
8 things/persons I am passionate about.
My blog : It has given me an identity and also earned me a respect from my dad..
My son : He is the reason for me to live.
My friendship : I cherish my two friend, one since my college days and another one : my colleague in Bombay who help me keep my head high and boost my morale.
Computer Games : Be it spider solitair, free tetrix or zuma Deluxe, I can go on and on….
Reading : Be it reading the newspaper, or reading the articles /news items in the paper covers/ novels.
TV serials : I am getting hooked on to three serials some are quite stupid , Kolangal (7:30 pm in sun TV) and I am getting to like this Sankara pandiyan character, Radha ki Betiyan (as such a stupid serial, but i got hooked to it), ek packet umeed (Interesting)
Environment : Sincerely trying to be passionate about using eco friendly stuffs.
Cricket : Want to be passionate about it as my son breathes cricket.

8 things I want to do before I die.
I want to lose weight and wear a tight pant.
Visit the Alps, N.Eastern India and Kerala
Get through one of those lucky draws/contests and earn crores!!!
I would love to stay at a serene house surrounded by garden on all three sides.
I want to gain one more educational degree.
I want to write a story
I want to live as if there is no tomorrow with no tensions/worries
I want to stand in front of God without feeling guilty and really thankful for whatever I have and not asking for anything.

8 things I say often
Akash (in various tones)
Oh God!! (poor Him!!! But being Him, he must understand)
WoW!! (Simple three letter word that encompasses all the adjectives)
I don’t know (simple escapism)
Just a minute
Haan, tell me (Got developed because most of my colleagues and my son have got used to calling me from their respective workstations)
Thank you (I say it to the bus driver, rickshaw puller and almost everyone)

8 Books I last read.
Kite Runner
One minute Manager
Six volumes of Ashok Banker’s Ramayana.

8 Songs I could listen to over and over again
Yesterday Once more : My all time favourite
I am on the top of the world
Neele neele ambar mein

Bhool Gaya Sab kuch, yaad nahin ab kuch
Jab koi baat bigad jaaye
Tuje dekh dekh

The songs I end up listening (this was not a part of the tag,but added it)
Dus Bahane
Maujha re Mauja
Do u want a partner
Pappu cant dance
Darde Disco
Jhomm Baabaar Jhomm
Dhoom machale dhoom

8 people I think should do this tag
Sapphira : I love her. She is a darling!! I would love to know more about her through this tag.
Inder : I know he doesn’t like getting tagged but it looks like he has got nothing much to write. Just to reinitiate him into blogging with this tag
Priya : Thanks for the lovely flowers and hug that u send me. Take a tag in return
Chitra : a tag for you whenever u return to blogging
Amitji : Would love him to take the tag. Would he?
6. open to all those who are interested…………..

Thank you, Chitra, for doing this tag.. :) I'm also a big fan of shankari's writings. Thanks to you. i must say.

You son is lucky that he has such a wondeful mother..! T.V.Serials I used to see once, nowadays very few are that good. I used to see amalu, on DD, ganga yauma saraswathi and all, In hindi Udaan, Mahabharath, Byomkesh Bakshi etc..

I hope you get the crores. Write a story.? I'm sure you have the talent to do that whenever u want.

I read the KiteRunner.. Was a great book.. How are these volumes of ramayana..?

Neele Neele, Jab Koi.. and Mitwa are my favs too..

Chitra, if at all, Amitabh Bachchan does take the tag, I will be thrilled.. thanks to you.. so did you ask him..?

P.S : Chitra, I've rectified the problem on my site. Thanks for bringing it to my notice. Because I had a popup blocker installed, I never came to know. My sincere apologies for any embarassment that I caused.

My Hugs for Akash.!

Have Fun, take Care and God Bless!

With Best Regards,

Hi Chitra, got here through Shruthi's blog. You have a great blog going here along with a natural flair for writing. :)

Also could you tell me a similar kind of learning centre for kids in Mumbai if you know of any? Thanks so much!

I am sure you know what WOW means. Wonder Of Words.
Take Care.
I came across your blog through my friend Chandini Santosh.

Hi Chitra, I see that you have read all 6 of Ashok Banker's Ramayana. Have you checked out his website www.ashokbanker.com? You could become part of his group epicindia like me..
And I get to hear a lot of the first 5 songs on your list because my son loves them....
Good tag...
