being tagged

It's time i took ds's tag. It's quite some time, i know. ds, i'm very sorry. I hope you guys are still patient with me. A friend once asked me, 'Mo, what does one mean by tagging another person?'. I replied that i didn't know the answer. I still don't.

Here we go,

Q1. Are you happy/ satisfied with your blog, with its content and look?

Sorts. At times, i do feel that crap makes way as posts. Rather i could've have expressed myself only partly, when i think that i could have done a better job on the same. But at the end of it, i am pleased.

Q2. Does your family/friends(an additon from my side) know about your blog?


Q3. Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog?

No. There's no reason why i should be. I would, in fact be happy. Perhaps, they can read me better this way.

Q4. Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts?


Q5. Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself?

I do come by new blogs on my own. It's kinda nice.

Q6. What does visitors counter mean to you? Do you care about putting it in your blog?

Frankly, nothing. And counters: no. I'm not bothered by it.

Q7. Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?

I guess i did(am not sure), though for a very brief period of time. Possibly, i felt that i shouldn't be, again, bothered by it. This does not term me ignorant.

Q8. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?


Q9. Do you think that bloggers’ society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?

It is not. Isolation from the real world. A very very hypothethical situation.

Q10. Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it’s a normal thing?

No. It's normal for anybody to criticise me. Human behaviour, that's it. In fact, criticism is good, it makes us think.

Q11. Do you fear some political blogs and avoid them?


Q12. Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?

I was. But if somebody did do some wrong, it's alright for them to be arrested. Perhaps, we live in this fancy world where we consider all bloggers, saints(that's the notion that most of us carry, my guess). Realisation does hit me late.

Q13. Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?

No. Again, i live in beautiful thoughts. Something that i like exists forever. Those sorts

Q14. What do you like to hear? What’s the song you might like to put a link to, in your blog?

A tough one here. It depends on my mood. At times, i do hear a particular one twenty times over. I find the same boring a few minutes later.

Water(all songs)

Ganga(Bhupen Hazarika)

Manasa Sarovara(the title track)

Shubhamagala(Hoovondu Balibandu)

Aaj Ki Raat(the new 'Don')

I'm glad, i finished this. Really.

Ds, thanks for considering me. I feel privileged. And, i duly apologise for the delay.

Sorry, I didn't realize this was done. I thought you were buys with your studies and didn't have time. Since I didn't see you in my blog for long time, I just happened to come back to see if there are any more updates and lo, came across this, which was done a long time back.

Thank you!

As for the songs, I truly love the Kannada songs you have ehre. As for the Hindi ones, I hadn't heard them until now.

The songs from 'Water' solidified my theory that AR Rehman is so damn predictable. The same music tilted a little and reused. especially the first song in the links you have reminds me so much of his old songs.

As for 'Don', again, heard it for the first time. I think this is something which I need to get used to ebfore liking it. Thsi song is more like an acquired taste ;)

Again, thank you for doing the tag.

i so agree with you. his voice is golden. moreover the lyrics of that particular song is touching. it is played in 'ruDaali', which is amazing by itself.
what a plot, by mahaswetha devi! mindblowing!

i recieve your comment when i'm b'lore :) this city has some charm, u see!

the song from 'don', i got to like it a li'l late myself. it takes some time. but u'll start liking it. actually, i had some more songs on my mind when i had to do this list. but the thought that it can get boring(very), stopped me from putting them up.
