So I was asked to join this "TAG-athon" by Uma of Un-Lackadaisical Craps.
Thank you Uma for the tag. Not just for the tag, but also for making me write my 50th post :)
I am so sorry for taking so long to pen this down! been busy :P
So here goes the set of rules to be copy pasted..

  Rule#1: Put the rules on your blog.
    Rule#2: Every person tagged should tell 11 things about themselves,Answer the 11 questions asked by the one that tagged you and Tag 11 other people and ask them 11 different questions.
   Rule#3:Let the people whom you tagged know you've done so.
          Rule#4: Don't tag anyone who's been tagged before.
         Rule#5: Really do tag 11 others, don't go all ''if you want to take this tag''.

11 things about me??? 
1) Looks are deceptive. I perfectly fit in that category. First impression about me would usually be "She seems reticent" Believe me, I am the exact opposite. Talk to me about anything under the sky. I am all ears..

2) I take pride in saying I am a volunteer with BHUMI. For those who don't know what Bhumi is, its an NGO . We at Bhumi teach kids who have so much calibre but lack exposure. More on that in my next post :)

3) I am not a morning person.One thing that I hate is to get up early in the morning. I can never compromise sleep for any damn thing.

4) Horror movies are so not my genre. Watching even a lame horror movie has a terrible effect on me for days.

5) I love eating :D Wait not just that, I love cooking as well. Have tried out few dishes and did not screw up even one. :P *beams*

6)Music makes my day.

7) It annoys me when people fail to keep up their promises. A word is a word. And hence I never promise if there is even an iota of doubt on whether I will be able to accomplish the task at hand.

8)I am a very independent person. Being dependent leads to expectations which eventually ends in disappointment. So why depend on someone when you can do it on your own??

9)I am an indoor person. Traveling around is not my kinda thing.

10) I have got a variety of interests. Today I like something and tomorrow something else. Is that called being fickle minded?? well if yes, then I am happy to be one. Live to explore :)

11) I never regret about the past. bygone is bygone . I procrastinate work and at the 11th hour, I do not complain as I know, in the years to come, I will have a good time reminiscing these days.

I have so much more to say :D But I guess I will stop with this as the rules say !
 Time to answer the questions asked by Uma.
1. If a genie could grant you 3 wishes, what would they be?

Hmmm lets see. How about mind reading?? No not like Edward in Twilight. That is more like stalking. There were times when I have been desperate to get to know what is going on in someone's mind. So yeah that would be my 1st wish. "Selective" reading of minds! I repeat, only selective.

To own a chocolate factory. Exactly like the one in Charlie and the chocolate factory :D Choco addict I am :D

My third wish would be to go back in time and relive those moments that I cherish till date.
2.What is your favorite sport / song?

Sport- I love to play Table tennis and Badminton. Not really into watching any sport.

Song- That list is endless. Still to name that one song, my pick would be Rolling in the Deep - Adele(hardcore Adele fan)
3. What is the one thing, which you can’t live without?

    Well actually I cannot live without so many things. A shoulder to cry on, a hug that assures me saying this too shall pass, a comforting smile during hardship. I guess this doesn't apply just to me right??

4. How and when did you start blogging?

     I started blogging 3 years ago. It was an accident. Instincts, I should say. I thought I shall start a blog and here I am writing my 50th post :)

5. The inbox sms which you never wanna delete?

     Each and every appreciation/criticism that I received for my first short story is something that I treasure the most. :)

6. What is the craziest thing that you’ve ever done?

   Craziest thing?? Err I am a crazy person and I do every crazy thing :D Not just one to name. Reason for being very abstract is that nothing strikes me right now :D
7. What is the special gift you’ve received from someone close to heart?

I do not quite understand your question :P Every gift I have received till date is special in someway or the other. :)

*sigh* Finally I am done answering! Its now my time to question :D

1) The one thing that cheers you up no matter how bad the situation is??
2)Do you believe in a miracle? If yes, has it ever happened to you? When and how? :)
3)That one fantasy of yours that you know will never happen.
4)If given a chance to go back in time,what is that one moment you would want to relive?
5)Things done cannot be undone.! If at all given one opportunity, what is that one thing you wish you can undo?
6)Do you believe in love at first sight? If yes, then why? 
7)Name one movie that you never get bored off no matter how many time you watch that.

Tagging 11 persons? I think 5 would do. Awaiting your reply :)
