Anu tagged me and that was a month ago. Sorry for being late buddy and here it goes….

6 whatevers about me.

1) Youngest kid @ home, quite a quiet town bred guy from Dharmapuri, attended school like every1, graduated from PSG CAS, Coimbatore and now post graduating from UoH, Hyderabad.
2) A true believer of Destiny, Humanity, Karma, Love and Relationships. Now basking in the beauty of life and its side effects (Courtesy Acknowledged).
3) Wanted to be a doctor, couldn’t, and didn’t make it up. A wannabe professor, a wannabe journalist, a wannabe writer, a wannabe MBA, a big-time wannabe Nobody in life, When I was a kid, I seriously considered becoming (rather being) a shepherd. Even now I imagine myself to be a shepherd, with my sheep grazing and me with a book in the lush meadows. Green grass, blue skies, strawberry fields, vanilla clouds, okay ENOUGH…
4) An inside-introvert, equally loves being in solitude and in company. Am a kind of ‘Alone in the Crowd’ guy. Cos even when alone. I have my own crowd n cloud of thoughts. A loner by choice. Sounds complicated, right! Well am ‘confused n crazy’. That’s what my folks call me. Am happy and proud of the beautiful people I met in my life.
5) Basically the jobless, can be bee-busy and log-lazy at times, an avid writer, voracious reader and a passionate listener of music, Keen and silent observer of life.
6) Just living every moment….

5 things I miss in life now.

1) My Coimbatore life, it’s where I learned to be on my own.
2) I miss those busy streets of UK, cross-cut road, Gandhipuram, street-side bookshops, coffee shops, ma favorite tea stall and the corner table, the chai shop near Cheran Book shop, Anweshana and a lot more of Coimbatore.
3) Well again my UG campus life, my seniors, my peers, my juniors and few Profs, Nila Mutram, Vinayaka bakes, Krishna bakes, the canteen, K R bakes, the road from CAS to SITRA, Cbe Air port, the hot chocolate…
4) My school life, those casual, carefree joyful days. I wish (just) I can turn back the clock. Well life is all about moving on…
5) Now ma reading habit was busy with ma project…

10 things I wanna achieve in a decade.

1) Take up another education level.
2) Clear ma JRF
3) Learn a musical instrument (well I already missed many opportunities till now, don’t want any regrets)
4) Teach. CRS ma’m and JB ma’m (my mentors’ n good friends) have been a great inspiration in ma life.
5) Work in between all this and be my own financier. {Outside help will also be greatly appreciated. Can even adopt me for tax exemptions. Dad n mom will be glad.}
6) Work with any concern or Voluntary organization concerned with children and watch them grow.
7) Meet certain people (for instance Nicholas sparks, Vannadasan, JKR, Nanditha Das, Vandana Gopikumar and Vaishnavi Jayakumar of The Banyan, etc.,)
8) Build ma dream house n christen it Malgudi.
9) To write a post informing ma friends that I’ve done all the above mentioned things.
10) Be a dad.

The book tag.

Just completed this beautiful book.
To kill a mocking bird.

The door was opened, and the gust of warm air revived us. Zeebo lined on Jordan’s stormy bankers and church was over. I wanted to stay and explore, but Calpurnia propelled me up the aisle ahead of her.

I Tag
1) Alpine Path
2) J O T T E R S
3) A little something
4) The garden of life
