  1. Congrats on your first award Pratibha! :D I am so glad that I was one of those you chose, thank you, it really did make me happy. :) :D I love white too! :) As I have twice done Liebster posts on my blog, I am going to answer the questions right away here:

    1. Favorite Book: Not a single ultimate favorite as of now but love(d) reading Premchand, Malgudi Days, A Thousand Splendid Suns, PS I love you, City of Djinns a lot.

    2. Movie/Book that i can watch/read again & again: Some of the books mentioned above and for movies, I can watch Rajshri Productions 90's family dramas like Hum Apke Hain Kaun and Hum Sath Sath hain again & again :P

    3. Comfort Food: Anything super spicy, Peanut Butter.

    4. Cartoon Character: I have watched very less cartoons compared to my generation and I regret that but from the ones I have watched Noddy and Oswald are my favorites.

    5. Guilty Pleasure: Can't think of any. (Reading beauty blogs ALL the freaking time?)

    6. What I absolutely hate: People (mostly ladies) breaking queues on the metro (Anybody breaking queues and that too unashamed, I HATE those people!!)

    7. I wanted to share everything that gets my attention in life, big or small and that too through writing. I am so glad I have a place to write about that!

    8. I enjoy places with people and culture more than natural beauty. So abroad - Venice, Italy, Morocco and many more places! In India, for long relaxing holidays I would prefer peaceful places like Munnar, Kerala, Pondicherry but I really, really want to visit culturally rich places like Kolkata, Gujarat, Benaras, Pushkar etc. :)

    9. Short temper.

    10. Yesterday only I did two embarrassing things. One was when a colleague asked if I was coming to this other person's wedding, I gave such a vague answer as to why I was not coming that the person who asked almost walked away while I was speaking!! :/

    11. Many. One that I can think of 'Girte Hain Ghudsawar Hi, Maidan-e-Jung mei'. It means that only the ones who have the guts to ride a horse get injured in battle grounds. Basically, if you get hurt, it is ok because it means you were making an effort for something.

    That's it. :) Hope my answers ain't boring. :)

    1. Oh that was fast,thanx for such a prompt reply. I also love Noddy and Oswald :) and talking about metro there are so many things that irritate me about metro crowd.
