A while ago, fellow blogger Apple Rae tagged me to answer these questions below. I have been wanting to answer them from some time but boy! have I been busy. I’ve barely been able to keep up with my blogging schedule and firefight all the other areas of my life that are fast transforming.

But I like talking about myself. Which is ironic because I like to be known more through my work. So I guess thanks a lot Apple, for tagging me! I love your blog and have been following it actively since I started this blog in January.

So the idea behind the TMI tag is Too Much Information. I have tried to stay true to the meaning and toned down the responses to some questions. (You should be glad I did. Lol). I hope that the people I tag will also be good sports and answer these questions. πŸ˜‰

What are you currently wearing?

Black tee and grey bermuda shorts.

Have you ever been in love?

Lol, Far too many times I think.

Have you ever had a terrible breakup?

Once again, Far too many times I think! lol

How old are you?

27

How tall are you?

5 feet 11 inches

How much do you weigh?

92 kgs

Do you have any piercings?

Used to, up until I was 24, I used to wear ear studs. I also had really long hair and a hippy beard. Then I cut my pony tail off, began to sport a clean shaven look and decided to do away with the ear studs as well.

What’s your favourite drink?

Spiced Buttermilk/ Creamy black tea.

What’s you favourite song?

‘All my love’ by Led Zeppelin.

What’s your zodiac sign?

Cancer. (Yeah, I am emotional AF! )

How long does it take you to shower?

Depends. After work out showers are longer generally. Morning showers are pretty quick.

What’s your favourite show?

FRIENDS. lol I watch a random episode almost every day.

What’s your favourite band?

Has been forever and always will be… Led Zeppelin.

Something you really miss?

Sneaking off on dates when I was 16. Oh I miss those times. I miss teenage. πŸ™‚

Where do you go when you’re sad?

Depends on how sad I am. If I’m really sad I’ll switch off my phone and spend the rest of the day meditating in my room.. drapes shut, doors bolted. If I am ‘just so’ gloomy, I sit on a bench at a quiet corner in the park, observe birds and people. Write a poem on my phone maybe. Channelize the sadness. lol. Sadness is beautiful. Don’t block it. Enjoy sadness…write poetry, draw sketches… paint! πŸ˜‰

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

Depends on where I’m going that day. I’m not a hop-out-of-bed-and-ready kind of guy. Usually, it makes me a long time. Most women could get ready faster than me! lol!

Have you ever been in a physical fight?

Lol lots. I used to get into way too many fights all through kindergarten, junior school, high school through college and until right before I started working. I suddenly mellowed down after I started working and focused my energies more on my career and pursuing creative endeavors. I rarely if ever get angry these days but you wouldn’t want to push me into a corner nevertheless.

What turns you on?

Depends on the person. πŸ˜‰ Usually, a polished, cultured personality with a streak of hopeless romanticism and love for the arts. Someone who know how to carry themselves with grace. Grace is really important.

What turns you off?

Uncouth, insensitive, shallow, superficial behavior.

Qualities you look for in a partner?

Nothing in specific but someone reasonably good to look at, communicative and empathetic towards the disadvantaged and a strong sense of responsibility towards society. Romantic partnerships are strong when the sense of responsibility is strong. Both towards each other and to society.

What’s your favourite colour?

Blue, Dark Green, Pink, Black.. it depends, I don’t think I have one ‘favourite’ colour!!

Loud music or soft?

One with beats and energy mostly. I listen to a lot of EDM and acid rock these days. I hate ‘loud’ music. It should be intense but not loud. That is probably why I have never been to a concert or even a disco. My sense of hearing is way too sensitive.

Favourite quote?

β€œIf it was meant to be, it will be.”

Favourite actor?

Ranbir Kapoor (Bollywood hero.) I watched ‘Rockstar’, one of his movies, 46 times! I highly recommend you watch it if you can find it with subtitles. It will leave you breathless! The acting.. the direction… the music.. breath-taking!

Do you have any fears?

Yes, I fear dying with unfulfilled dreams.

What’s the last thing that made you cry?

A street dog trying to revive his dead friend hit by a car. Graphic and upsetting.. I know. Let that be a lesson for driving safely. Also.. Adopt strays over shelling out big bucks for pedigrees. You’ll be doing a great act of kindness and saving at least one poor animal from living on the streets.

Polar bear dying of starvation on iceless land Global Warming is real. Global warming is coming for all of us eventually and if you want proof that shakes your soul to the core and stirs you into action, this video is it. Do something. Anything. Spread awareness.

Last book you read?

India’s Struggle For Independence by Bipin Chandra

The book you’re currently reading?

Indian Polity by Laxmikanth

Last show you watched?

I’m more a Youtube kind of guy these days. Can’t recall when was the last time I watched a movie. Hardly have the time. 😦

Last place you were?

In a parallel world were I didn’t have to answer so many questions.

Last sport you played?

Not a sport but I love walking. I enjoy taking long walks. As in really long.. I once walked with a friend from one state to another. Realised only when we reached the border checkpost. πŸ˜€

Anybody who’s reading this IS talking to me! Hey, what’s up with your life?

The last song you sang?

‘Imagine’ by John Lennon (I also like singing 1973 by James Blunt)

Favourite chat up line?

What have you been up to? All well?

Do you have a crush?

The only ‘crush’ I feel is the weight of my goals crushing me under them. Lol! But I have a huge crush on Emma Watson. πŸ˜‰ I’m a sucker for British women. I think it’s the manners and the accent that bowls me over. πŸ˜€

The relationship between you and the person you last texted?

Friend.

Favourite food?

Garden Salad with Italian dressing.

Place you want to visit?

Peru. I’m obsessed with the place especially with the supposed ‘Ancient Aliens’ connection! Whenever I get a chance to go there, I am sure as hell going to pitch a tent on Mount Machu Picchu overnight.. as high up as possible.

What’s the last time you kissed someone?

Been a while.

Favourite sweet?

I avoid sweets like the plague but I have a choco chip cookie once in a while. πŸ˜€

What instruments do you play?

I started playing the flute a little bit, a while ago. I’m more of a singer not so much with instruments.

Favourite piece of jewellery?

None per se. I do wear a rudraksha rosary on my wrist though. I wear a rudraksha rosary around my neck sometimes too. I find it extremely calming.

32 thoughts on “TMI Tag – Too Much Info about me!!

  1. Thank you so much for tagging me Jay ❀ It was really interesting to learn these things about you. FRIENDS is probably my go-to TV show as well. I don't even know how many times I've watched each episode. Teenage years are also nostalgic for me as well, the whole conception of 'love' was much stronger back then πŸ˜› But it was also a difficult time for me, since as is common for me and for most emotional folks, it was when anxiety and emotions first started to peak… Didn't you experience anything similar? Your fear, Agree 100 per cent… Your last time you cried, oh my god… I could keep commenting but I think I'll stop here πŸ˜› I'll prepare my answers for you soon πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. hehe… thank you so much for reading Evana. I’m so glad we struck a chord with common interests and views. I was holding back at first but once I decided to post these answers I decided to go all the way and actually spill out all the info. haha. Anxiety and Emotions peaked big time for me when I entered my teens. I used to run a lot and played 4 different sports at one point of time. I just channelised my energy into competing with others. lol I ran away from home for a whole week when I was 18 and went backpacking solo in the himalayas with virtually no cash. I also developed a notorious temper around that time haha but now that I look back I think my teenage is when I actually found myself. Everything so was fresh and new then. The variety of emotions especially. The last thing that made me cry.. that’s actually a video and I wanted to share the link to it here but decided against it. Maybe I will.. considering it could raise awareness about safe driving. I am eagerly looking forward to your answers. Don’t worry, take your time. If you rush it, you might be compelled to edit the interesting parts. πŸ˜‰

      1. Haha, you’re lucky you found sports as an outlet in your teens, only in my early adulthood was I able to discover their power (meaning 2-3 years ago :P). The running away part sounds so cool too πŸ˜€ For me, my teens were a very compressed time, I could only compare it to a boiling pot with a lid on it πŸ˜› I was always obeying to what others dictated to me, my parents, my friends… I wish I was more rebellious like you! It took me years to find a more suitable path for me… And I am still not 100% there yet!! But then again, who is?? πŸ˜› The link would have been one of those things that I would be compelled to watch even though I now it would have harmed me, and in the end would be traumatic… But you are totally right about the safe driving, and sometimes we have to face the harsh truth for something to really sink it. I am against turning a blind eye on things that cause us pain, even though, being emotional, my pain responsiveness is much higher πŸ˜› You are right, these questions are a great opportunity to even get to know yourself better… I am looking forward to the answers I will come up with as well πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ See you on my next post!

      2. Haha mademoiselle.. I got into sports to impress the ladies. Lol. That I accidentally became genuinely interested and good at them is another story! Being rebellious is not as cool as it sounds. My parents were strict. Military strict. I braved groundings over groundings over groundings. At school, punishments over punishments over punishments. That made me popular with the girls too. Lmao. No wonder I sobered out when I entered my twenties. Being wild and free was too much of a stressful statement to make and with diminishing returns. I have updated the links in the answer. Let me tell you in advance.. They will haunt you for weeks if not months. I am sharing them nevertheless because the message they convey are extremely important. I am 100% committed to both of them. Spraking of 100%.. Being 100% there means there are no more problems to solve. No more improvements to make. The Japanese say if there are no problems left to solve, no improvements left to be made, that’s the biggest problem! Yes it’s true, when you begin to talk about yourself .. That’s usually when you realise what goes on in your head. Hehe πŸ˜‰

      3. Hahah, well, usually the outlets we find we find by mistake, don’t we? For you it was like a 2 for 1 deal: you got to let off some steam and impress the ladies πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ . I understand that it must not have been easy, but at least from a yound age you got to realize that the road others pave for you is not always right. And plus, more girls πŸ˜› . Haha I 100% agree with the japanese saying. Jack Nicholson has said the moment you have stopped learning is the moment you are dead. As for the videos, you were right to link them.. I will watch them when I know I will have the time to ponder on them after and let them sink in properly (meaning when I will have time to cry :P). But you are right, sometimes we need to rattle the perfect little universes we have built for ourselves.

      4. “We need to rattle the perfect little universes we have built for ourselves.” How true.. How beautiful.. I think that is the crux of all improvement and self development. That is the crux of a higher knowledge. Even enlightenment I dare say. I firmly believe Evana, that where there are no roads, no guiding footprints.. We can build our own path.. We can pave our own way and hopefully leave behind guiding footprints for those lost like us.. We are all students in this vast existence overflowing with unimaginable variety of experiences that will help us grow… and that is why we must also be teachers. The least we can do is lead by example. Being a rebel is a good thing. You are right. It means you are taking responsibility for your own life. Building your own ideology. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

      5. Haha yes, to be honest I can’t take full credit for that phrase, I was inspired for it from a Coelho book I am currently reading called ‘The Zahir’.. I saw in your ‘About me’ that he’s one of your favorite writers, so maybe your familiar with it.. The exact phrase is: ‘People do their best not to remember and not to accept the immense magical potential they possess, because that would upset their neat little universes.’ Again, this suits the point you are trying to make quite well. It’s just quite hard at times because we are so used to the reality society has built for us that it acts like blinding headlights and we’re unable to see anything past them.. We’re trapped in this black hole that sucks up all creativity.. Anything that doens’t fit into the mold they have made for us is automatically rejected.. So you feel obliged to comply. Hopefully that won’t be the case for me and I will continue carving my own path.. Even if its through posting poetry on a website. I guess that’s better than nothing πŸ˜›

      6. Wow Evana.. it’s been so so wonderful interacting with you. I am glad we connected here on WP. Your comments have made my poems far far richer than they were without them. Thank you so much!! Coming back to the topic we were discussing.. I dunno.. you read and you read and then you write and you write.. paint, sketch, sing… create in all forms available to you.. express… and then you realise in the end.. All you’ve really ever done through all of it.. is just get in touch with who YOU really are inside.. I think, that’s what matters and counts. That you can look within and see the world.. in it’s true glory.. as it is.. outside. πŸ™‚

      7. Thank you Jay ❀ I feel the same. Your writings are the closest 'mirrorings' of myself and my own feelings I have found on the internet. That is very true… I guess that is the most important thing. Discovering yourself, and then, if you find people to follow your path, that's okay, if not, that's fine too πŸ™‚ But at least the path you will have carved will be true to yourself and your own feelings… That's the goal.
        About seeing the world as it is, well, that's the thing, I believe you give meaning to the world around you, and that the world 'is' in many shapes and forms, depending on how you see it… So, by getting in touch with who YOU are, you see the world at it's best, at least, it's best depending on you πŸ™‚ It's like choosing the best filter for you instagram photo πŸ˜›

      8. Lol you are mirroring my thoughts exactly. I can’t believe there’s so many of us out there! lol you on a more closer level 100% and altogether, since I started blogging.. I am amazed at the people I’ve met. Writing about the same issues.. carrying similar feelings.. voicing similar emotions and raising hope in their own way. I think that’s what writers are like. I think that’s why being an artist is like being a god in your own small world. You create so you can understand yourself. I wonder if that is why he has created this world too? I wonder if that’s what creation is all about.. going inwards for inspiration.. putting it all outwards and then coming inwards again to make sense of what it says about you… Evana.. I think I know exactly… it’s like breathing.. it’s not like an instagram filter, it’s like photography itself!! lol

      9. Yes, I feel the same way.. This may sound funny, but there are time where I feel grateful that the internet exists, just for this purpose… If it weren’t for the internet, I would have just feel weird, isolated and that I don’t belong… Well, more than I do now, at least πŸ˜› At least now I know that there are more out there, and the internet has helped us connect. What you seek is seeking you!!!

        And you are right, writing has helped me understand myself more than I ever have before. It has given me clarity that I never could imagine it would. I wasn’t even expecting this result, I was just writing because it felt like a no-brainer, like a reflex, it was something that came out naturally. But through it I now feel like a different person, more aware of myself, my desires and my needs.

        And about photography, you are right. I once read a quote that photography has little to do with the things you see, but everything to do with the way you see them. πŸ™‚

    1. I know.. 😦 What will haunt you is that he is visibly crying the poor guy.. after all his efforts in reviving his friend have gone in vain.. If you watch the video about the polar bear starving to death, I am pretty sure you will stop at least start talking about global warming with your friends and acquaintances. It’s such a serious matter and I am amazed there are idiots out there who refute that it even exists. It is happening.. right now… 😦

        It’s sad how all because of one species (humans) everything is slowly reaching its end. And the worst part is, not everyone is concerned… some are not aware and some take it to lightly.
        You know, the some human’s nature, unless it doesnt start affecting them, they don’t care.

    1. Hehe Cancerians are the most intuitive and nice people out there. πŸ˜‰ We are an emotional bunch though. Like me.. I wear my heart on my sleeve all the time. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I should say thanks a lot to you. You nominated me for the Liebster Award so early in my blogging days and gave me the opportunity to share more about me. Then this tag.. which I am guilty of being late to respond to.. but this has been so much fun too. If not for your questions, I probably would never have come out on my own and share so much about me. haha

  2. Thanks for the tag. It was really wonderful reading your answers and you seem to be quite an interesting person. β€˜FRIENDS’ is my favorite series also. I can watch it anyday. Also, you do seem to have an interest in the β€˜ancient aliens’ thing which is really curious and unexplored. Much can be done about that. The concept of love was really innocent in the teenage age. You will find yours surely!!

I believe there’s a lot lot more to things than what we just go with in our ‘normal’ lives. Society just hushes things up cause waging wars and keep us running like rats to run their big corporations is what’s important to them all. πŸ˜› Teenage was really magical. Everything was so fresh and intense back then. So much hope for the future. We were always eager to grow up back then. lol Guess it was all a sham!

    1. Hahaha I hope you are well Haripriya. Glad you found my answers entertaining. Creative people are usually quite similar. Especially wrt their way of handling sadness and melancholy and channelising emotions into creating something. I will surely give that poem a read. πŸ™‚ Ranbir is truly great and I am eagerly waiting for his biopic on Sanjay Dutt. He is such a thorough actor! I watched rockstar so many times esp. Because of the phase of life i was in when it came out. I could relate so much. Finding a quite place.. In Mumbai.. O wow.. I feel so landlocked here in Delhi. If only I lived near the sea! You’re so lucky. If I lived near the sea, I would probably rent a boat alone and sail it somewhere far into the sea and lie on my back looking at the stars and listening to the waves… As for running away… I do crazy stuff from time to time. Haha. That’s what keeps my creativity flowing and the spirit of adventure within me.. Alive. Eagerly looking forward to your answers. πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah i was probably a school going girl when rockstar came but unlike other kids i always use to go after some stories or facts not just good looks of an actor or person. Well, regarding sea, you think i hav’nt tried that i was going throught some tough times (nt brkups!! ):p just some family issues i went to a sea shore i felt never coming back but eventuly the police πŸ˜‚ askd me wht u r doing alone n calld my parents. Trust me staying in a city like mumbai is v difficult no cliff, hardly any parks which are always full. I wish to runaway at some isolated island πŸ˜› . Yes creative and adventurous people always attract others!! πŸ™‚

      2. Hahaha happened to me once. This was around the same time I had run away.. I was so fed up of everything.. I went to sit by myself, listen to some music and smoke beside a lake in a park near my home. Two police men on beat pulled me up thinking I was some criminal. Haha when I told them I had come there just cz I was depressed they were shocked and insisted on calling my parents. I bribed them hundred rupees and they let me go on the condition that I won’t come there at night again. πŸ˜€ you can rent a boat though. No one will ask anything. There’s the possibility the boat might capsize and you might drown if you’re not careful… Lmao but the coast guard is relatively a lot better. They don’t trouble you much. At most they’ll take a look around your boat with a flashlight to ensure you arent smuggling anything. Lol. πŸ˜‰
