I’ve been tagged by Rahul of Cognitive Amalgamation. Thanks dear!!

I have taken some time to respond, 'coz this one is a bit different. I have to answer questions asked of me and ask further set of questions to anybody I wish to tag. (Thats Rule #2, btw)
Here are rest of the Rules:

Rule#1: Put the rules on your blog.

Rule#2: Every person tagged should answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you, tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.

Rule#3: Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.

Rule#4: Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before.

Rule#5: Really do tag 11 others; don't go all ''if you want to take this tag''. [Yikes!!]

Here are answers to questions Rahul asked:

1. What are you passionate about?

2. Cinema and Politics. What do they mean to you?
Cinema implies recreation. I love purely commercial Bollywood flings, because you go in expecting nothing, and come out thinking how idiotic people can be. :)
Unfortunately, Politics mean nothing.

3. One good thing you want to happen in India, for people – Long term?
100% literacy

4. One good thing you want to happen for yourself – Long term?
It's maybe obvious... I wish people would stop calling me fat.
5. One good thing you want to happen for yourself – Short term?
I am too blissful a person to want anything like this.

6. A frank thing you want to say about one of the bloggers here?
Here.. where? I love the works of most bloggers I come across in blogosphere. I detest technology blogs, 'coz I cannot relate to them.

7. Belief in God?
Only in times of crisis. You can call me Agnostic.

8. One thing you would surely do to uplift this poor country?
Kill certain politicians, if I could.
On a serious note, I inspire people not to cheat.

9. One secret about you?
Secrets should better remain secrets, isn't it?

10. Do you hold any regrets in your life?
There have been disappointments,but I havent held them as 'regrets'.

11. Adventure if any in life…lets count:
Starts right from school days. Countless.
Here are 11 questions you have to answer:
1. What does blogging mean to you?
2. Name the person who influenced you most.
3. Which is the last book you read?
4. Which are the subjects you hated most in school and college?
5. If you were to become a sports celebrity overnight, who would you choose and why?
6. Name your dream travel destinations- India and Abroad.
7. Describe your job briefly.
8. What is your alternative career option?
9. Do you really think the world will come to an end after December 2012?
10. What are the things you would like to do before you die?
11. Your views on television soaps?

I hope, those named below take this tag:
1. Sushmita of My Unfinished life
2. Ashok of ashokism...
3. Ramesh of Global Madrasi
4. Arvind of Simple Stories
5. Rachna of Rachna Says
6. Sulagna of pink n black
7. Sandipan of Sandi's Musings
9. Deepika of Words as a Form of Life

Nice to read your answers, Anupama. I wish I could kill off politicians too :), and I seem to be more of an atheist now. Thanks for tagging me!

SRK said...

Done. Now, I have a question. When and how did you come across my blog? :)

Sandipan Mitra said...

Thanks Anu. Hopefully will get back into habit. Here's mine:

Anupama K. Mazumder said...

I like the way you put it. :P

Thanks for doing the tag, having moulded it in your own way. But, what is this question? I discovered your blog sometime in 2009, how I am not sure, and have been revisiting from time to time. I thought you would appreciate it.

Keep blogging!

SRK said...

I know you have been reading and commenting fairly regularly. Just wanted to know how you got there. Trying to figure out if you know someone who knows someone who knows me etc., It doesn't matter, but I am just curious.

And I half-did the tag because I don't actually know 11 people who still blog, and I am too lazy to come up with 11 questions :)

vinayak said...

i like your long term goal of seeing india 100% literate. btw, me too working on improving the computer literacy in india. we have a group called every weekend we go out and train people;)
till we extend our hands to the right cause we can't expect to see the nation to be perfect.

Bikram said...

came over from Rahuls blog, loved the replies.
especially to the last on having regrets .. good as you say those bad times are just experiences :)

Amen to the 100% literacy though


Anupama K. Mazumder said...

I just found that I discovered your blog in 2008. Phew!!

Yes, its important for all of us to realize that we all have roles to play in having a world class nation. Keep up the good work!

Think big to achieve big!!

When I open your RSS feed it puts up a whole lot of strange characters, is the deal on my end?

Anupama K. Mazumder said...
