7 things

Over the past 5-6 months, I have been offered awards by fellow bloggers approximately 2.00000000001 times. But I kind of ignored them because of my own vanity and laziness. I still don't like awards but it feels disrespectful of these guys when you just don't say anything on it.

This post is dedicated to "ME" and "I-Heard-U". Thanks to both of you for considering me worthy of it. Turns out I am not :-)

And from now on, new agenda: shorter blog posts. Consider it more of a constraint :-)

Here are 7 things about me:

1. Messed up mind

I tend to think too much. So much that sometimes I am in a mentally blank or numb state because of so many things. And it is a very peaceful state of mind. I am able to feel happy and guilty for the same thing. Similarly, angry and forgiving, and, remorseful and past-rationalizing. Its a bit complicated ... and great :-)

2. Love for Hindi and Punjabi

I totally love these two languages. If it was socially acceptable to say that your mom had two tongues, I would surely say that I have two mother tongues :-) 

3. Love for food

This one, I am sure everyone who knows me, knows. Though lots of people and my dad tell me I am missing a lot by being vegetarian and not drinking etc., I love what I can have.

4. Love for my mom

This one has been stamped on me. I love my mom just like any other person, but my friends seem to have taken an exception to it. This all can be credited to one Navdeep Toor. 

5. Love for reading... randomly

This one I suspect is true for every blogger. Though I am not sure about the random part :-)

6. Love for hypocrisy

With growing up as a person, I am slowly and a bit hesitatingly starting to accept that I am a hypocrite. This is because I have different standards for others and for me. I am thankful for my life to have provided me with situations to discover this aspect of mine, though. Something to change in myself, even if a lofty ideal, is welcome.

7. Love for lazing around

This is so true that it did not need mentioning. I can do something, and keep on doing it, just to avoid doing something else.

    1. Thanks. I guess each of us here loves writing but doing it with consistency is an issue. Maybe this is what separates us from people who write for a living.

    1. Today's modern facilities make lazing around really easy. So many books, internet, music, phones etc. etc.

    1. Thanks. It is not 2,00000... but 2.00000, but I would surely love to use a comma instead of a decimal point :-)

  6. I can say for all of us, that we love you for these qualities Kaushal saab(Ooh i so much love addressing you by this name!) And being messed up?? found you the most suljha hua person bro! Why undermine yourself? And hypocrite? Boy! No way you are a hypocrite! You always give me the right advice and we both know it that a hypocrite can't talk like that! You are the man bro, you are the man!

    1. It is like corruption: the most corrupt make it a point to look as clean as possible. At best, my consideration of myself as a hypocrite or messed up mind might be some sort of imposter effect, but I highly doubt it. We might have to sit and discuss.

      We are all either men, women or others :-)

  7. I tend to think a lot as well...I tend to waver back and forth a lot depending on the issue. Mainly because I see a lot of grey rather than black and white.

    1. Thinking is good. I am not so sure about the grey part...

    1. Dear Bear, I guess when I say I like getting to know you, it sounds redundant. Because everyone loves bears!

  11. Dude, let me tell you I took a resolution to write smaller posts and that's when I started writing even lengthier posts. So I've given up on that and I focus my energy on trying to make my lengthy posts easy to read ;-)

    1. This comment almost made me stand up with laughing. I myself am kind of afraid about even longer posts. But for the moment, I will stick with trying for shorter ones. Let us see how long I can go.

      Delete
    2. :) I guess to write shorter posts, one needs to be an lethargic & impatient person like me..

    3. Someone once asked Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan to deliver a lecture. When Dr. sahab asked the person what duration the lecture would be, he was told 15 minutes. So, he replied that he needed a month to prepare.

      Then he added, if the duration was 1 hour, he could have delivered the said lecture in 10 days. And if it was 2 hours or more, he could deliver it even at that moment.

      So, from my and Ashwini ji's side, and from Dr. Radhakrishnan's side, it takes effort to shorten things.

    4. yeah... Cent %. I like posting whatever comes to my mind. When I see how much I have written then it looks like a book! The worst part is I don't want to erase any of the lines after writing. It's not impatience Dwiti, it's a talent. You have it. I need to take training from you. 1st and 5th point suits me more than other points. Good one KK :)

    1. No, Diwali was on November 3.

      It is according to a Hindu calender so falls on different days each year.

    2. In Brazil we celebrate "Dia dos mortos". It`s celebrate on November 2 every year. In this day (its a holiday) the people go to the graveyard to clean and bring flowers to family or friend who have died. I like this, but it`s a little sad. My grandfather died this year and it`s difficult for me go to the graveyard ):
