‘Tagging’ isn’t as bad as ragging, well almost…

August 8, 2006

Tagging, I thought, was a children’s game in which one player pursues the others until he or she is able to touch one of them, who then in turn becomes the pursuer.

But there is a different type of ‘Tagging’ game played in the blogworld. Today, The ‘Professor’ has tagged me. And this is the first time I have been tagged. Somehow, even when my seniors caught me for Ragging, I wasn’t scared. But this ‘tagging’ business is little scary, I thought, until I started writing…..and I found it cool! So here goes!

I’m thinking about:
Newspapers and retired life.

I said:
Exams are the worst thing that happened to mankind. (And got one on my head from the invigilator)

I want to:
Get the whole world to taste CTR’s Benne Masale Dose.

I wish:
I had met RK Narayan and listened to his stories.

I hear:
My wife asking me from the kitchen: Did you change the baby’s diaper?

I wonder:
How some people can be so quick in Mathematics?!

I regret:
Not being quick in Mathematics.

I am:
Extremely unpredictable and moody.

I dance:
Whenever my prediction is right.

I sing:
Whenever I drive. OK, even when I am a pillion, I sing. Well, even when I walk, I hum along.

I cry:
When I watch Deewar, Sadma, The last scene in ‘Kamanabillu’ and also thinking about the most precious commodity in the world, Amma.

I’m not always:
Impatient and angry.

I make with my hands:
Cartoons, Collages and Coffee

I write:
Extremely long posts. And that makes me light.

I confuse:
Rarely. I think ten out of two people don’t confuse.

I need:
All the newspapers and magazines in the world published till date. And I also need the time to read them all, from the ‘Masthead’ to ‘Printed and Published…’

And finally:
I wish I had been born in Malgudi.

I tag Kishor, Gangadhar, Vijay, Travel Plaza and Sanjay

    Shruthi: I am as excited as a kid, coz you gave me 100 on 100! 😀 Thank you Professor.

    Kishor: Even I was a ‘hosaba’ to this Tagging business till Shruthi clarified my doubts. I asked Shruthi:
    really donno what to do when someone tags you! plz tell me what do i do?

    Shruthi replied:
    Nothing, just copy my post, retain the words in bold, and delete the rest, and put in your own responses and post it on your blog. At the end, you “Tag” five people – it just means that they have to make the same list. That’s it!
    Of course, you are completely free to ignore the Tag too!

    Did I hear you say, “That’s all, is it”? Well, after the problem is solved, everything in the world becomes THAT’S ALL! 😉
