Questions from Niranjan:

Q. Describe yourself in one word.
A. Impulsive.

Q. Why do you blog?
A. I blog and write to give coherence to my thoughts.

Q. What is the difference between a blog and a personal diary?
A. Blogs are online diaries. You can decorate the pages with different fonts, designs, colours etc. while personal diaries are traditional bound, handwritten thoughts.

Q. What do you want to change?
A. What do I want to change? I once read somewhere that if you want to change anything in your life you need to do the following: change what you’re doing or change your attitude. I guess I want to try that out and change myself.

Q. What do you like the most?
A. Mentally stimulating conversations.

Q. What would you prefer at any time in your life, love or money and why?
A. Love. Love can see you through the good and the bad times...I dunno if I could say that for money.. 

Q. What is your weakness?
A. I have many but if I had to choose, I would say it is my extreme need for organization, as sometimes it upsets others around me.

Q. Who is your role model and why?
A. My dad is my role model. He has always been a pillar of strength for me and I love him for being there for me through every single step of hardship that I've ever dealt with.

Q. Are you spiritual or religious or none?
A. I am deeply spiritual AND religious.

Q. What is your goal?
A. To travel and experience all that I can..to die with no regrets.

Q. If God asked you three wishes, what would they be?
A. That's a tough one..let me just quote Mirza Ghali here..."Hazaron khwaishen esi ki har khwaish pe dam nikle..bahut nikle mere armaan lekin phir bhi kam nikle.." :)
