Jo,at AMajority of Two had this interview thing going a couple of days ago.My blog,so far has been a meme free zone.But its going to change,for I decided to take up her offer of interviewing and being interviewed,but not in that order.I have to post my answers to five questions she put up on her blog,and if you want to do it too,consider yourself tagged...I'll be posting five questions for you at the end of my post.So here I go.
1. Have you ever been influenced by a work of art – music, painting, book – and if so, how?
The most romantic answer to this probably would be by music,but I'd have to say a book.The Odessa file by Frederick Forsyth.The Odessa File is a "thriller" novel , first published during 1972, about the adventures of a young German reporter attempting to discover the location of a former SS concentration-camp commander.
The name ODESSA is an acronym for the German phrase "Organisation der ehemaligen SS-Angehörigen", which translates as “Organization of Former Members of the SS”. The novel alleges that ODESSA is an international Nazi organization established before the defeat of Nazi Germany for the purpose of protecting former members of the SS after the war.(courtesy,dear wiki).This book was the first historical fiction I read,and it made me look at International relations in the modern world from a completely different point of view.
2. If you were a chocolate bar, what type would you be?
The type loved by one and all!
3. What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex?
Nothing works better than a good sense of humour.Coupled with the right attitude,it sure is a winner.
4. What, in your opinion, is your greatest accomplishment?
Greatest?Hm Okay.Should I be honest? or should I be good ?*winks*
For the majority of my teen years, I struggled with a weight problem,which if given a free reign could have had resulted in Juvenile diabetes(though at 18 I wouldn't consider it juvenile) and morbid obesity in future.But now I have tackled that monster,thanks to right excercise and a proper healthy fizzy-drink and junk food free diet.
5. How many friends do you have on your Facebook account?
I'm not that active on Facebook,it isn't a cult thing India,well I can't speak for a billion plus population,so I'd rather say the people I know anyway.To cut a long story short,not many.I'm much more of a Orkut person,and a couple of years ago I used to be a myspace adict.Besides,I only use SN sites to keep in touch with my friends,not for making new ones.I believe in actually going out and meeting people in person rather than with a screen and a thousand miles between us.Blogging,however,is a different issue...there are so many bright minds at work in the blogoshphere that its too good to resist!
Thats the end of it.You can answer these five questions or choose from the five I'm typing below.
1.Have you ever been through a wierd fashion phase?
2.To tackle the ever increasing problems like global warming,terrorism etc do you think that a World State would be more successful,or a confederation of states?
3.Say, some time in future we are so blessed that we can not only choose our friends,but also our family.For or against?
4.If you could have a career,other than what you have now,what would you like to be?
5.What are the things in your life that make you feel complete,the things which make you feel you don't want to be anybody but YOU?
