Sunshine Blogger Award

First, a thank you to Steph over at heyytherebeautiful for nominating me for this award. πŸ™‚

Next, I don’t nominate.

And now, eleven questions to answer….

  1. Are you scared of something? Why?

My own mind when it’s let loose…..Oh, and drowning! πŸ˜€

2. Have you ever been to Malta? If no, would you want to visit? And for those who are Maltese: What are the qualities that you love about Malta?

No, never been there…..Would like to see some of the extant medieval architecture there. πŸ™‚

3. Is there a particular book you are fond of? Why?

Oh there are too many to count. πŸ˜€

4. What is you favourite memory from your childhood?

Lazy summer vacation days, lounging around, reading….

5. Would you rather be batman or superman?

Batman. I don’t want to depend on some sucky sun to give me my powers…..

6. Can you hula hoop?

No, and believe me I tried too. lol

7. What made you start this wordpress blog?

A foolhardy desire to teach the world. πŸ˜€

8. Would you rather be Harry (from Harry Potter) or Frodo (from Lord of the Rings) ?

Frodo? Ouch! Hairy calloused feet and always depending on someone to bail my a** out of trouble. Harry, any day.

9. If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?

Nothing anymore. πŸ™‚

10. What’s the best way to comfort you when you’re having a really terrible day?

Leave me alone with my staples. πŸ˜€

11. What is one thing you’re embarrassed to admit you want to try?

Swimming. I should have learned when I was young…sigh!

Thanks again Steph for nominating me, and I hope everyone you nominated has taken it up! πŸ™‚


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. I was, and am suffering from depression and things had gotten out of control. I had chronicled it in my posts, but I have removed them. Not because I wanted to hide that facet of my life; if that were the case, I wouldn't be writing this. But I was lucky to come across many, many wonderful people out here who helped me. Even if it was just to post and tell me I wasn't alone. I can't tell you how thankful I am for all of you. I've tried since, to tell my own story as an attempt at catharsis (didn't work) and as a means of telling others that they weren't alone either, not in their depression, nor in their cutting or burning, nor in their thoughts of and attempts at suicide. So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost dark self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on. I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice. I am a depressive, have been for some time, so some things do trigger me for no rhyme or reason; I don't expect anyone to understand that this happens, just maybe accept that it does. If not, I am sorry.
