So get set Goooooooooo …. 🙂

 

I have been very lazy and not done the Awards that were forwarded to me by some of the lovely bloggers and they are pending from almost 2012, So I thought I should take them up and complete them, also lately all I have been doing is putting pictures this is a change from them too ..

So Today a liebster award .. let me show off it ..

liebster-award

Here are the rules:
A. Thank the blogger who gives it to you.
B. Answer the eleven questions he/she asks.
C. Nominate eleven bloggers with less than 500 followers.

So let me thank all , Thank you so much Tandooripanipurilife , Chipmunk , DwindowSeat,Alka Narula Its been a long long time Since I got an award yayyyyyyyyyyyy, I feel honoured. Thank you. I am blessed to have such lovely human beings who are so nice and genuine people. Thank you all for being so good to me, God bless you all and here’s wishing all your dreams always come true..

1.
Tandooripanipurilife Gave me the following questions to Answer..

Here, we go!!

1. What made you start blogging?How is blogging different than keeping a diary for you or is it the same?

I need to thank a Lovely human being who made me start the blog a few years ago now, I did write a diary earlier and YES i do think blogging and writing a diary are two very different things, First of all a diary is very personal as no one gets to read what it says, while a blog is read by so many and all who read make up their own image of who you are. Which can end up good or bad. Also blogging actually helps as people who genuinely read you will hopefully give you some advice , which will help one in becoming a better human being.,

2. Do you have a pet? If yes, which one? And if not, why?

Well I love pets, back home in india , I have a few and I miss them like anything. Here in UK I got some fish and that’s about it , I did have a dog called rocky , who I kept for a few weeks but gave it back as I felt I was being horrible to him. I left for work early morning and came back late night, Rocky had to remain alone which was not fair on him.

3. Which city do you think is the best to settle down in India? And why?

Well off course MY CITY, CHANDIGARH.. the best place on earth for sure where my Mom and All my friends Live. I have lived my childhood and my youth in that city, have had the best time of my life in there. It has been beautifully planned, big clean, broad roads. The rock garden, the Rose garden, the lake, the movie theaters, the eating places, “Hot Millions”, “Tehal Singh” , The “Golden rooster” in sector 8, missing the lovely chicken soup. OH GOD now I have got all emotional

4. What is the one thing that you ordered in a restaurant and it turned out to be totally yuck and expensive?

Oh this happened this week, Went to Chiquito’s and WHAT A MISTAKE IT WAS, I had gone to visit my cousin and we planned to go for dinner to this Mexican place,Had to book a seat, the lady on the phone told us that the heating was off, so it might be a bit cold, That did not bother us much as it was not that cold, We went and made ourself comfortable. Now I do eat a lot so I ordered something that sounded HUGE and also it was the most expensive in the menu 🙂 I can be greedy I know. So I ordered this Chicken & Chorizo Skewer, for almost £15 pounds.. which boasted of “Succulent chicken breast skewered with chorizo and mixed peppers and served with lime & tequila sauce” before that we had a sharing platter of nachos and I ordered a Margarita while waiting for the food.. Mine was supposed to be a sizzler too, so out it came and the sizzling sound made my mouth water .. at the thought of having this whole thing ALONE.

the girl put the dish in front of me reminding me to be careful of not touching the metal plate that was very hot.. so picture this a Hot plate with TONS of Onions sliced.. sizzling, and On top of that were TWO KEBABS oh yes it was nothing but TWO kebabs with chicken pieces and different coloured Peppers..

20130301-224809

I took One bite , it was COLD.. it was like they had taken two kebabs from a freezer, put it in microwave for a couple of minutes , put them on a HOT plate with lots of onions JOB DONE.. The worst ever dish I have had and PAID for it tooooo … Never again , I left half of it on the plate.. then went to a local Indian Punjabi pub ordered a Chicken Tikka with a Nann .. that cost me £3/-.. Yummyliscious that filled my stomach 🙂 Nothing can beat that now can it ..

5. If you see your enemy (or simply somebody you dislike) in a helpless situation, will you go forward and help them? Or leave them and enjoy mercilessly?

I think I know for a fact that I am an Idiot and it has been proven a lot many times , hardly learn from my mistakes. I would probably go and help them out . But I am one who never forgets what they did to me and I will never be friends again with them no matter what ..

6. Have you ever been caught by your parents doing something totally inappropriate for your age?

Inappropriate well , how can someone says its inappropriate because if I did anything like this , then I did it because I thought it to be appropriate.. :). Although I must say I have a long list , I have done a lot of stupid things. I have had a drink or two and got caught.. I had had a fight with someone and got caught.. I remember one incident one of the Teachers had refused to fill up my lecture’s in second year and we had to have 75% attendance to get the roll number, I had requested the teacher to help me out , but he would not budge .. So we declared a strike in college and I remember Walking into lecture rooms asking everyone to Vacate the college as We had called a Strike.

As I was going out .. in walks my Father with his friend who was My English teacher and Saw me Shouting at the students ..

it was an embarrassing moment as I was supposed to be a good boy at home 🙂 he he he he

7. What is that one thing that you criticize publicly, but do the same in private?

hmmmm .. I am not sure. I probably do a lot But I do my best to do what I say .. and I do wish god gives me the strength to do it all the time ..

8. Do you like water sports? Which one?

I LOVE THEM.. I have done a lot now, Jet ski ( Oh I have an experience in that, I had gone to Australia , gold coast where me, my brother-in-law and two kids went for a jet ski, one child with me and the other with him, we ere enjoying so much riding the waves , etc etc , when all of it finished as we were heading back to park the Ski, my nephew says , MAMU let me touch the water and he bent over, his hand did not reach the sea so I bent to the side a bit more, The next moment We were both in the water with the SKI on top of us .. As we came up, all I could hear was the little guy shouting SHARK SHARK he he he he .. so we managed to climb up the ski but to our bad luck when I tried getting up because of my weight (OVER WEIGHT) we went down again ) … he he he he

Speed boats, Scuba dive.. it is FUN

9. Have you ever thought (or actually did ) of harming somebody very badly in order to get back at them? How?

Yepp .. when I was growing up college time was the time of gangs and trying to be the strongest group in college so we have had a few major fights etc.. I have been hospitalised a couple of times with stab wounds , broken leg .. but then those days are long gone I have grown up now well so I think 🙂

10. Do you fart and behave like the other person is guilty of the crime?

Oh yes.. have you used the Fart balloon.. it is fun in a crowd you press that balloon and it makes that funny noise, suddenly there is an odd silence 🙂 he he he Yes I am bad like that.

11. Have you ever been caught by the police ( or worst locked up)? For what reason?

I am not saying anything on this 🙂 My lips are Sealedddddddddddddddd…

Thank you All..

See you again on the next contest …

I was having this interesting conversation with a friend of mine, when the topic of Blogging came up specially Commenting.

A couple of interesting views came up

1.  I was asked how come I go and comment on a lot of blogs, even when it is seen that they probably never visit me or if they visit they don’t put a comment or even reply back to the comments I make.

Well I am sure I have replied to that umpteen times, I guess its in my habit (right or wrong) I don’t know , I always have something to say which sometimes has put me in trouble too.  I also feel that since the author has taken the time to write what they have written, maybe it will be good if we also read what they have written and give our two cents worth of view.

I am sure like I feel happy to see all the comments pouring in they too would feel good.

Although I must say I try my best not to write two-word comments as I think there is this culture in blogosphere that you comment on mine only then I will comment on yours, Which I have recently understood. I am sure a lot of people have written about this phenomenon a lot many times.

So Now I think I will have to change the way I look at this place too.

2. Indiblogger and Voting :-

On Indiblogger there is a forum called indivine where We can put our latest post . The people in your group then can come and Read it,  Now all this is fine but I have always had this problem with Indiblogger on the voting phenomenon.

I have been involved in a few nasty discussions too over time , But I can’t understand this VOTE thing.  What is it for.

Although to vote one has to open the post,  yet in my eyes if  as a reader I have opened the post then I should read the post fully, Why bother voting if  you don’t read the post.   It takes a lot of marketing skills to get lots and lots of votes.

I have realised that most just press the button again quickly to vote, hoping others will come to vote too. I don’t particularly like that idea as again I doubt if all who are pressing the VOTE button actually Read what one has written.

In my eyes I would much prefer people to come over , at least read what one has written and yes also let me know if they have liked or disliked ,they agree with what I have written or not agree, If people don’t tell that then how is one going to learn. How can one learn that they are doing a mistake, till someone points it too.

Blogging world has become a lot like attention seeking sorts.  This voting process seems more of getting a hit or traffic on your blog.

I am not the one to shy away from saying yeah I put my article up there , So people in my group know I have posted a new post. I am lucky many of the people do come and read what I have written which is a good feeling.

3. How come MEN or the male species don’t comment in that number on  blogs written by other Men compared to those written by the lovely ladies.

I had not noticed this until recently, It was pointed out by this good friend.  I did not know what to say . So I thought about asking everyone who visit here and read what all junk I write about, what is the reason.

I in no way am saying I don’t want the pleasure of the company of beautiful lovely people who already come , But why is it that the male version who I definitely see at almost every other blog written by ladies and whose blogs I do sometimes comment on , Not comment on this blog 🙂 .

Is it some sort of man thing , which I am not getting. Because I visit blogs irrespective if they are written by a woman or a man, would be fun to know the reply to that one . I think there is a Gender Bias in blogging too, I dont want to give examples and embarrass people but I have seen it happen.

What do you think people.. Do you feel the same way as I do, OR am I completely off my nuts as usual ?

Does it matter to you who visits your blog ?

Does it make you feel bad if people don’t read what you have written but just comment for the sake of it .. Or press the Like button. 

Do you feel bad when you see people whose blog you have commented,  they don’t even reply to you and WORSE still they Reply to every other comment but yours on their blog.. 

What do you do,  Do you stop going to those blogs.  ?

You can tell me that I am just being a moron 🙂

Contest and Award :- What do you see … (3)  I have finally got to declaring the 5 winners of the contest, I know its taken a long time , as it was tedious for me to make name slips of everyone who gave the right answers and then asking a colleague to pick up 5 names .. 

Thank you all for participating and it seems Everyone has almost got the answers correct, So after much deliberation and talking to a couple of blogger friends , I thought The award will go ot the First Five who commented.

On the post  Bikramism’s What to do for Fun:) .. part 4 I had promised to tell what Two of the list I have been involved in , well here it is I have done

1. If it’s a general store or a big food shop, What we can do is Get some  boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they are not looking.  

This was at the Birmingham airport, One of my friends was getting married and we were to go for his stag do to brussels, It was an evening flight, which got delayed by 4 hours , we had already had enough to drink so there was no chance we could have drunk more and allowed to board the plane , so we thought of what we can do which will be funny, When my turn came BOOTS (the pharmacy in the departures lounge) looked very inviting and some of the boxes of condoms found their way into the que of people standing to be served .. HOW they reached there I have no idea .. I was drunk so I don’t recollect he he he he , blame it on the alcohol .. nothing to do with me

2.  Get into a fitting room, shut the door, wait awhile, and then Yell very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’

This was again on of those stupid dares, nothing worth telling other than the face of the guy standing in front of the changing rooms was worth taking a snap shot of my friends said , Also I was told by a few of you who have emailed me that I should have taken one of those prank scents , that gave out a smelly smell.. to have made it more real.

*************************************************************************************************

Last but not the least the Guest Post The Little Children of India  I had given for Rachna Parmar of Rachna Says  got picked up by blogadda as their Tangy Tuesday pick.

I would like to thank Rachna for giving me the opportunity , and thanks to all the lovely people who read that post and commented there, If not then do have another look.
