Posts Tagged ‘Tag’

Writing everyday of the month is becoming very very difficult, missed yesterday did not want to do it today too, so the easiest thing was to take up the Tag that Visha started, Although I was not tagged, I am still taking it up, Sorry Visha for that. She herself has done the tag here

So here we go, I love sports hence the topic of the Tag also sounds very sporting “Play Volleyball”

Rules of the tag:

Answer all the questions. No ‘pass’ or ‘no idea’ type of answers.
No cursing me if you found the tag to be difficult while attempting.

Here is the tag –

1. List all the ingredients which went into making the most interesting dish you ate today.

Well it is bright and early in the morning, being a Monday(this post was supposed to go yesterday) , rushing to work and as usual had a late night, hence am running a bit late so this one is very easy for me to answer, especially since I am very retarded in the field of cooking 🙂

SO here we go, this is what I have had and its easy to make .. Take a bowl, Pour the contents of the pouch in it, Add some Milk .. Put it in the microwave and after 2 minutes it’s all done .. EASY PEASY 🙂

C.

I was recently tagged by Smitha from  Any Excuse to Write…

What this is about: To unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavor to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again.

Rules:

1) Blogger is nominated to take part

2) Blogger publishes his/her 7 links on his/her blog – 1 link for each category. The links are:

– Your most beautiful post

I love all my posts, I know everyone says the same , but then I cant decide which one is more beautiul than the other, Since when I am writing at that precise moment that is most beautiful. I will cheat from Smitha and ask a question here.. When you are commenting DO tell me Which one you think is the best Article I have written.. Go on give it a try?

– Your most popular post

It seems one of the recents posts on my birthday has been most popular.. 11-11-11 It’s got the most comments

– Your most controversial post

I think I get into trouble in a lot of posts I write especially about the nation, and on NRI’s who are settled here abroad., But I liked writing the one on Slut walk and the comments that came after that were good too , it was fun replying to them all too , Another was the One where I asked the Terrorists to kill the parasites of our great nation rather than killing the innocent hard working people, that brought a lot of lovely comments too .. to the fact that I was said to have written to it just to get a few comments 🙂 .. To the Terrorist.

– Your most helpful post

Well Again how do I know, I have found that sometimes the post that we write to say something rarely get read or commented upon, while some stupid posts which are either put for the sake of putting one or just a picture gets a lot of Comments, Maybe its sign people telling me how bad a writer I am 🙂 …    I think since christmas is round the corner Would like people to read this one on Drink and Drive.

– A post whose success surprised you

Now that is a Good question, Frankly each and every post that I have written brings a surprise, For I think I am still learning and have got a long way to go.  Lot of my friends have given me advices, Some have shown  surprise with eyebrows raised thinking have I written or HOW did I manage to write that post.

– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved

Some of the posts that I have written on problems faced and how the Govt is taking us for granted probably needed more attention by fellow bloggers.  Farmers of our nation.. They are the backbone of our country

– The post that you are most proud of

I am proud of a lot of posts. I am a emotional person and I live a lot with memories missing a lot of people , my posts on my Father, my Friends , My village are very close to me. I usually write what i feel irrespective of what others think :).  I have a few to mention here ..   Fathers Day , Anupinder , Ravjote, Babbar

3) Blogger nominates up to 5 more bloggers to take part.

Now the Fun time in who to Tag, 5 for me is too less but I will try to keep it to 5.

1. Insignia
2. Punam
3. Sandhaya
4. Harman
5. Destination Infinity

Thank you everyone for all the love and care you have shown me and my blog over the last 2 years ..

Incredible India

I found this interesting  tag thought of taking it up!

We all know, how vast, rich and incredible our country is!  There is a lot to do in this vast country, I have loved being to every place i have been , Have so many lovely memories of every place

The rules are:
1. The list contains all the states of India and their capitals are in brackets.
2. Make bold the states you have visited, and mention your favourite memories of that state.
3. Include only states that you have really experienced, and have felt the culture of the place. The touch-and-go while travelling in a train does not count, because that way I believe I’d have seen a little more, but it does not give me a feel of the place and so they need to be actually visited.


Note: The format is State (Capital). The ones I have visited are in bold.


1. Jammu & Kashmir (Srinagar): Well 1985.. jammu and kashmir tour with school.. the beautiful places on way .. Kokernag where Jhelum starts .. Anantnag ,Srinagar Gulmarg, Pahalgam As they said if there is heaven on earth then its here.. The dal lake … , Stayed there for 20 days visiting all the places .. One of the places of which along with very very good memories , I have one very bad memory.. brought back memory of getting bullied .. The first place where My best friend Anupinder showed me how to stand againt the bullies, How to take it on even if it was 5-6-10 guys against me alone.. I can never forget the night where we were challenged to dare to come to there room and we did , we got beat up so bad , but we went there and Anup stood with me .. Thank you anup whereever you are , I know you are looking at me .. Thanks
