#youprefer

Hey there. I know I have been ignoring this space for a long time for many reasons, throwing a post here or there. But I have started writing again and I’m gonna start posting again surely as a lot of thoughts and ideas have saturated my mind and my brain is just about to burst. Some of that is bound to leak onto this blog.

Anyaway, Sameer [whose tag can be read here] has been kind enough to tag me, reminding me of the good ol’ days of blogging.  Here are my answers to some random 15 questions based on a twitter hashtag #youprefer

1. Night Or Day

Although I always try to be a day person… I can’t help but stay up late.. so night I guess.

2. Facebook Or Twitter

Twitter.. I feel it’s more innovative and less intrusive.

3. Arranged Marriage or Love Marriage

Love Marriage. Even though I might not understand exactly what love is, or how it functions, I am biased towards it. Arranged marriages can lead to attachment which many people might call love, but love is just something else.. it’s that feeling of butterflies fluttering in your stomach, the raising of the heart beat like your heart is gonna jump right out of your chest, as you catch just one glimpse of that person.

4. Delhi Or Jalandhar

Delhi. Yeah, I changed this one to suit my needs. But, I really have fell for Delhi.. and I have no reasons for it.

5. Good looks Or Intelligence

Both? A little bit of both maybe? Come on, we do need both. I don’t mean we all need to be Brad Pitts and Hilary Duffs, but we need to have at least a presentable look. It’s just hard wired into our genetics to develop a certain likability for good looking people. Intelligence might make you successful, but you won’t have very many people to share it with if you aren’t likable.

I’m sure we’ve all witnessed cases where someone good looking might attain something they might not deserve as much as their ugly but more intelligent peers.

He wouldn't have many friends even if he was as brainy as Albert Einstein.

6. Money or Respect

You need both. Respect won’t matter when you are starving. And money will never be enough if you don’t have respect. Of course for some people, neither of these matter.

Just a really nice poster

7. School or College

School. Never been to college 😛 Hope it’ll be fun.

8. Perx or Jas

Let me explain this first. Perx was an alter ego I’d developed on the internet which had become too whiny and depressed and loserish. So, I decided to abandon it and start afresh as me.. Jas 🙂 .

9. Drums or Guitar

Air guitar and air drums 😉

10. Tea Or Coffee

Tea.

11. Art or Science

It used to be science.. but art is slowly taking it’s place in my heart. I guess I’m just starting to change my approach to figuring out the eternal mysteries. I’m starting to explore inwards instead of outwards.

12. Novels or Movies

Movies.. my first love. I enjoy reading only cuz I immediately start forming a script in my head side by side, imagining a whole movie right inside my head. There’s just something different about seeing it, a feeling of reality, a connect, which reading can never provide.

Like, reading about a person or chatting with them or reading stuff they wrote is such a different experience from talking face to face and spending time together. You feel like you are re-discovering that person. So, if I had to choose between the two, it’ll always be movies.

Mind you, I don’t mean movies based on novels are always better, but many times they are.. atleast when a skilled writer and director makes it.

13. US or UK

UK. I don’t know why.. europe just seems like it would be better.

'nuff said


14. Prose Or Poetry

Prose. Poetry is for people who can rhyme. The only poem I’ve ever loved is “After Apple Picking” by Frost.

15. Me Or You

It depends on who you are 😉 .

I’d like to further extend this tag to Ish, Priya, Reema and the prince of prose himself. Ciao!

The tag doing 3 x 10^8 m/sec

Yes, its the love tag doing the round of this part of the blogosphere these days. I have been tagged by Reema and the title comes from Priya’s comment on Arvind’s post.

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

I’m gonna go ahead and steal Reema’s style by posting pictures, but I’m gonna write the answers, so its a mix and match. Here it is:

1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?

I will ask her and find out why before going into depression and isolation for several weeks.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?

Make movies, publish novels, buy subway (restaurant), buy a Ford gt40, buy the fucking IIT.

5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?

I would prefer not to, but love is not a choice 😉

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

Being loved, always!

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?

28 days 6 hours 42 minute 12 seconds [DD]

Ok, seriously, if there is no inclination from her side, then until she is happily married.

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?

Win her over… what else?

9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your gf/bf or an actress/actor?

12. What’s your fear?

Not being needed, living a worthless life.

13. What kind of a person do you think the person who tagged you is?

A teacher to the core, with an alter ego of a student.

Single and rich, at least you can buy things to distract yourself.

Smile about the dream I had.

16. Would you give all in a relationship?

All except my blog…

17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?

The one who is more accessible, I mean who is more likely to say yes to me.

18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

No, I might forgive, but I won’t forget.

19. The one thing you can never forgive in love?

Backstabbing.

Well, Ashish, from the Geek World, has tagged me to do a music meme. I am really excited, I gotta say, you know a new legal job and stuff. Thanx Ashish and here goes the tag:

5 – You’re going on a long journey, what five albums MUST you take with you? Albums that you need to listen to regularly.

Hmm… top 5? They keep on changing every week, right now they are:

1. Meteora – Linkin Park

2 .Viva La Vida – Coldplay

3. Jaane Tu….. Ya Jaane Na

4. Curtain Call – Eminem

5. Hybrid Theory – Linkin Park

4 – What four albums/songs do you most associate with a
journey or travel experience? You know, the ones you listen to that
instantly transport you back to a place and time.

1. Enrique – Do you know what it feels like……

2. Dr. Zeus – Kangna [ Reminds me of all the friends I made at that animation coaching center, where they used to play this song all the time]

3. Dil, Dosti,etc. – Dum Laga [Strangely reminds me of the fun times we had in school]

4. Amrinder Gill – Ishq [Reminds me of my silent mornings I spent looking at her and saying nothing]

3 – Your three favourite songs of all time?

1. Linkin Park – Numb

2. Eminem – The Way I Am

3. Agnee – Shaam Tanha

2 – Two feel good songs, the ones that are guaranteed to lift the blues and put a smile on your face.

1. Tum Se Hi – Jab We Met

1 – Absolute, overall, undoubtedly the best album of all time, in your opinion.

Hmm.. here’s a toughy, an all time best album? I am not sure I have heard enough of them to even comment. But right now, I’d say none. I mean I love many right now like Jannat, JTYJN, etc. whose all songs are good, but these undoubtedly not the best of all times, so I guess I am yet to hear it.
