Every award is of significance to me because I feel appreciated for my writings and poetry and the hard work I put in my blog. I thank the beautiful writer and blogger L.E Hunt of The Palace for nominating me. Her work is phenomenal.
So, as per the rules, I answer the questions given by her.
What’s an interesting place you’ve been?
Well, lately I have been exploring my city, New Delhi because I felt the need to discover my own city before travelling the world. I visited a lot of monuments which have been a part of the cultural heritage since the Mughal Era and monuments dating back to thousands of years. I visited Lal Quila, which was constructed in 1639, and has been a part of Emperor Shah Jehan’s reign, to the centre of the declaration of freedom from the colonizing British. It was fascinating to see its domes with mysterious Mughal carvings and enormous gates guarding the monument which was once a palace and the home of one whole civilization. That place was something more than interesting. It was magnificent.
Strange childhood obsession?
This question cracked me up. I have always loved listening to music, but I never knew the lyrics to songs or their names. So back when I was in second grade, we didn’t have Shazam obviously, and I used to keep my radio on until that song arrived again. I stopped doing everything, hush everyone up and enjoyed that song. It was the moment of Nirvana for me. I was, and am still obsessed with finding out new music to listen to, whether it’s malls or restaurants.
Favourite book genre?
I am soft-hearted, yet my guilty pleasure is Thriller. Beyond suspense and scare is the real picture awaiting in the last pages of the book, sometimes yes and sometimes it remains an incomplete mystery for me to think all day.
If given the change to be immortal, would you take it?
My answer is yes, but I would use my immortality with caution and develop the wisdom I seek with knowledge.
Can you whistle?
I can’t actually. It sounds like wheezing wind.
Was there ever a time when you preferred a movie to a book?
Spoiler alert, I have never in life watched a movie based on a book and read the book at the same time. So I never got the opportunity to compare it.
Do you have any pets?
We used to. A dog, and then a canary.
If you had another ability, what would it be?
I think that every human has the potential to develop that ability, so why wish for it?
What place do you want to live the most (real or fictional)?
I am nostalgic of my childhood life in Italy, so there I want to go back.
Favorite Disney movie?
Many, many. I’ll list five instead. Aladdin, Wall-E, Tarzan, Mary Poppins, Lilo and Stitch. Disney has a special place in my heart. Every heartwarming movie of Disney makes me cry, literally.
What is the best thing ever, in your opinion?
Education. Because having knowledge is different from being educated. It can take you places. It can make the world a better place.
Here are my questions. Caution: May be a little heavy on the mind.
- What is your greatest strength and greatest weakness at the same time?
- What or who inspires you to write?
- Are you concerned about the dying Earth?
- What do you think is the best way to resolve an issue? (anything under the sun)
- Do you keep biased thoughts in mind while appearing diplomatic?
- What is your idea of serenity and peacefulness?
- Do you enjoy your solitary self?
- Are you openly weird or secretly weird?
- Do you loathe perfectionists? Or are you a perfectionist yourself?
- Are you superstitious?
- Have you ever felt that the world is conspired?
And the amazing people that I nominate are:
However, it is seven of them for now.
Congratulations, and thanks to all for being a part of my blogging life.
