Three things about myself

  1. When I was a child, I had a pet chicken that I loved so much. When it grew up, my mother sold it to a neighbour. I saw its feathers and other body parts in their dustbin the next day. I’ve never had a pet since then.
  2. There used to be a Mahogany tree in my family land. It was there since before my birth and was very old. In fact, it was one of the oldest trees on the land and I always had a special connection with it. During summer, it’s seeds would come flying everywhere and it would shed all it’s leaves. One day, my parents brought some wood cutters and started elaborate plans to sell the tree. I was devastated that they would cut the tree and started crying (I was a little kid then). My parents became so worried and they dropped the selling plans and the wood cutters went back. I had saved the tree! ( But not for long.Four or five years later, they chopped it down)
  3. I’m good at multitasking.This also means that I can’t focus all my energy on one task. The more busier I’m, the happier I will be.


Annie’s questions

1.What is the single thing about blogging that you value the most?

I blog so that I can unwind. It’s my safe place, where I come to during SHTF deep emotional turbulences and when I feel the familiar urge to create something. Writing allows me to think, to develop my own opinions and to flourish my creativity. I really wish that one day I would reach a stage to say that ‘writing is as natural to me as breathing’.

2.What episode or aspect of your life would you be most eager to “do over,” if you could?

I believe in fate, as most Indians do. So ‘whatever happens, happens for a reason’. Yet I regret that I didn’t pay much attention to building personal relationships when I was younger. I also repent that I didn’t pay notice to some opportunities that I was presented with. Ultimately all that one would regret is missed opportunities, I suppose.

3.What brings you the greatest personal satisfaction?

Productive work and deep conversations.

4.What musical instrument best describes your personality—and why?

I’ve never played any musical instrument apart from the mouth organ and the flute and neither did I study music much, yet I would say that I’m more like a Piano, an instrument with different flavours which produce all sorts of music. I hate to confine myself to any particular field and want to be as diverse as a Piano.

5.If you could perform a single act that you felt would contribute to world peace, what would it be?

Oh there is so much I would do!

Mankind has seen so much blood shed over petty reasons and I suppose all these wars are due to one simple fact, every nation and every individual are different from each other. Even though we share 99.9 percent of DNA, our differences are so huge that our thoughts are miles apart. So there is one simple solution to achieve world peace. Eliminate all the differences! No rich or poor(No I don’t support Communism though my state in India has a communist party government) and all men(and women) equal. I suppose it will be either an Utopian society or Aldous Huxley’s ‘brave new world’!

Oh! And about the one single act that I would do: Maybe to distribute all the wealth in the world equally? To hack into the system, one stroke and everything’s gone?!

On a personal scale, I would volunteer in education – environment protection activities. I realise how powerful knowledge is and may be the smallest thing I can do is to guide an underprivileged child to it’s full potential!

That was indeed a thought provoking question.

My Questions

  1. What do you think, is the meaning of life? In other words, what is the purpose of life?
  2. Which place do you want to visit (on planet Earth) the most-and why?
  3. Given all the wealth in the world, what would you do?
  4. What is your theory about the origin of the universe?(Apart from religious teachings, big bang, constant universe theory et cetera)
  5. What do you think, will be the greatest invention in the next 50 years?(No hyperloop, flying cars and martian settlements).

  1. I enjoyed getting to know you a bit through your responses. The stories of loss in your early years are very poignant, but your resilience shines through.

    I especially liked your reasoning for selecting the piano as the instrument resembling your personality—and your wish to distribute the world’s wealth evenly. Given human nature, I’m not sure that would solve all our problems, but it would certainly be interesting to see how broad the impact would be.

    I’m glad I nominated you, and thank you for your kind words about my blog.
