I am very thankful to you, Lena for thinking about me me for this. Lena writes an amazing blog, which she has titled with a caption “the world through my eyes”. And her blog is definitely that. The world through her eyes. She has such a unique way of expressing her thoughts in each one of her posts and I would definitely recommend you to click the link and read her amazing posts!

As part of this award, I am supposed to

  1. Thank the person who nominated me for this.
  2. Answer the questions that has been mentioned in the post
  3. Post my set of questions for my nominees to answer
  4. Nominate users for ‘The Sunshine Blogger Award’.

So, first things first. I will be answering Lena’s questions.

When was the last time you tried something new, and what was it?

I think the last thing that I tried a new thing was blogging itself. Although I was very aware of blogging and all its possibilities I never really ventured into it. One day I read a post on my friends blog and found it interesting. I thought I would probably run out of things to write about or get bored but so far both haven’t happened. And I think I started doing it maybe like 4-5 months ago.

Who would you compare yourself to and why?

I would compare myself to my mother actually. I think I got my non-stop talkative and social nature from her. Like mother , like daughter maybe. Although I don’t think my mother would agree if she reads this. She would probably say she is way more awesome than me.

What is the thing that gets you excited about life?

Well, as you get older, you pass through different stages in life. Time where you step into new realms of education or a job or a relationship. Or it would be new interests and the excitement that comes with it. I look forward to all the aspects of life as time passes by. And I hope to make the most out of this. I mean,we only get one life right?

What activities makes you lose track of time?

If you asked me like a year ago I might have said sleeping. But I nowadays lose track of time following kpop band, BTS across various social platforms (which I love ). Also, I lose track of a lot of time I spend reading all the wonderful posts that other users put on their blogs.

What is a belief you hold onto which most people disagree with?

Well I tend to forgive people quite easily and can’t really hate a person just like that. I mean a lot of people say that that I am sacrificing my self-respect, forgiving people who in their eyes don’t deserve it. But it don’t really feel that way. None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes. And I strongly Beleive that forgiveness is a very divine attribute.

Have you read any book that has changed your life and thinking? If yes what book is that?

Many. I mean I don’t know if it changed my life, but it changed my thinking. ‘A ship of brides’ was very touching. It depicted a tale of a woman who tried her best to reach a safe and happy future. No matter what her past was. There are really so many more books but this was the first that popped in my mind.

Do you think crying is a sense of strength or weakness? Why do you think so?

I think crying is a sign of strength. It shows that we are not afraid to show ourselves in our weakest and most vulnerable moments.

Would you rather be given $1000 or have the charity of your choice be given $10,000? (be sincere)

Okay, I am not going to act like an angel and say I will give everything to charity. Obviously I would use not a lot but a little for myself, to solve any problems that that I have then which can be solved. But I would definitely give most of it to charity. We need to help each other. That’s what makes us human.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

That has no answer really. I wanted to do everything under the sun including befriending aliens and saving the world. But realistically speaking, I think my most frequent dream was to be a teacher.

If you could be a Disney villain, who will you be?

Hmmm.. Jafar maybe. Out of all the villians he gathered a lot of my dislike, making him a good villain. He was also very persistent in making his evil plans succeed. Sure, he was evil, but I appreciate his persistence.

How do you think youโ€™re positively influencing your immediate surrounding?

I think by blogging. I am not trying to act like some blogging god who influenced hundreds. But very recently I started writing my posts , even the reviews by trying to see the inner meaning. And what we can learn from it. Be it a movie, a book or music. And through that I have managed to reach out to people I know and don’t know much better through the posts I did and will continue to do. Now I will write the question that the nominees have to answer.

We all dream of what we want to do. What we want to be. There are some crazy dreams (like meeting up with aliens or saving the world like Superman) which we know will never happen but still dream about a lot. Then there are those realistic dreams, like being a writer or a doctor or anything which is “sensible”. I want to know what your “crazy” dream and your “sensible ” dreams are.

My nominees are-

  2. Congratulations Anjali. I am new to blogging as well. Have long way to go. Iโ€™d like to answer your question though.
    Being away from career and corporate world for more than a decade now and playing a full time Mommy, nani and homemaker, I have finally seen one of my craziest dreams. Itโ€™s a day dream, so I have given myself a time of 2 years and want to emerge as a successful blogger tycoon out of nowhere.
    Another realistic dream as I call it, is to earn at least a billion in my name through blogging and my upcoming YouTube channel Learn to speak English. Thanks for reading Anjali.
