Vee tagged me to yet another revealing tag…a tag which would tell you 100 things about me. But people who are doing this tag have not checked the numbering. Its actually 87 questions. One made a mistake in numbering and rest followed!!! And I made it 86 as I don’t like odd numbers.
Here I go:-
1. Last beverage → Water
2. Last phone call–> 1 hour ago
3. Last text message→ 12 hours ago
4. Last song you listened to→ Genda Phool from Dilli 6
5. Last time you cried→ Don’t remember
March 22 was International World Water Day and to celebrate the day and to spread awareness about water shortage and water conservation, I conducted a quiz in my last post. The response from readers was poor and only 6 people took the quiz. 😦
He got 20 correct answers out of 22!! The runner up is Aathira who got 18 correct answers. Biju gets to display this wonderful badge [designed by Blogosphere’s official Badge Designer Chirag] on his blog’s sidebar.
The Pink Panther i.e. the first one starring Steve Martin was a hilarious movie which I enjoyed watching. Here is a scene from the movie where Steve Martin as the French Inspector Clouseau is trying to learn an American accent but fails miserably.
Music is an integral part of Bengali culture. Almost every Bengali girl in Kolkata learns singing. The older generations (and all the Non-Bengali persons I have come across and who were familiar about Bengali culture) actually expect every Bong girl to know how to sing “Robindro Songeet” but all of us DON’T know!! And then we are looked down upon for being “Probashi” (Out of state residents) and for being contrary to Bengali culture. Anyway that is another long story. Let me quote Wikipedia to explain what is Robindra Songeet.
Rabindra Sangeet also known as Tagore Songs in English, is a form of music composed by Rabindranath Tagore who added a new dimension to the musical concept of India in general and Bengal in specific. The Rabindrasangeet, which deal with varied themes are immensely popular and form a foundation for the Bengali ethos that is comparable to, perhaps even greater than, that which Shakespeare has on the English-speaking world. It is said that his songs are the outcome of 500 years of literary & cultural churning that the Bengali community has gone through.
Looks like Vishesh loves to tag me. Sigh! I was tagged to do the Google Image tag. Here are the rules:-
# You are given a set of questions.
# Google the image which best suits the answer and post a picture from first page of image search with minimal explanation.
# After you finish tag 6 other blogger friends and let them know.
1.Your age on your next birthday?
I cropped the pic as I wanted to keep my blog G rated 🙂
Yippeeee!!! I am soo happy!! My blog post where I wondered that why Aishwarya was awarded Padma Shree has been mentioned in the Bloggers Park column of the Bangalore Mirror and the Mumbai Mirror newspapers. (I guess both have that section common!). Thanks to Appu for informing me and to Nikhil for being sending me the scan of the article.Here it is :-
Until now we all have been receiving awards for our blogging styles and blog posts. Now there is an award for commentators (Shouldn’t it be commenters? Webster or rather WP dictionary should add it!) doing rounds in blogosphere. Apar gave it to me for being nice to her and Vishesh awarded me because in his words
“whether is a “phew!” or pointing out mistakes, she always comments”
