Liebster award.


Yet another liebster, guys! I’ve been nominated by Anushka this time. Tell me something girl, how’re you so positive in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for? I’m fallin’.

Your questions are so simple, they’re complicated to me. Let’s start, shall we??

1.When and how did you start bloggin ?
About four years ago. Someone close was a blogger; I decided to create an account so I can read from up close, which doesn’t make any sense; when have I ever?? So I was asked to try and I did. Nobody read at first, neither was I interested in writing but my first follower, Krissi, changed it for me. Though she isn’t writing anymore, we still keep in touch.

2.Beaches or mountains?
Too many people at the beach. Mountains, please.

  1. Would you rather read a book or watch a movie?
    Depends; sometimes I choose neither. Can’t we just get some food??
  2. How do you deal with stress?
    It’s usually stress that deals with me. I stay quiet, away from people and noises until I calm down.
  3. What appeals to you most, soul or appearance of a person?
    Soul (don’t tell me it’s the energy that gets scattered into the universe after death, please) is a philosophical concept and appearances are a facade. It’s always how you treat people who can’t do anything for you that appeals to me.
  4. If you could time travel, where would you go?
    I’d go forward and backwards and mess up the timelines, see things changing. For better or worse.
  5. Are you a talker or a listener?
    If you’re a talker, I’m a good listener. If you’re a listener, I’m a blabbermouth.
  6. Which do you prefer: calling or texting?
    Texting. Always. Makes confessions easier.
  7. What is friendship to you?
    Bonding with conditions that are reasonable and justified. It doesn’t matter how close people are, we all need our private space.
  8. Which do you prefer: thriller, romance or adventure movies?
    Romance works but Romcoms are the best! I don’t like movies that pull you to the edge of your seat, I’m here to have a good time, goddamnit, not have nightmares about it.😛 Any sci-fi that actually has a logical sense to it and adventure drama. Anytime.

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in!

Sorry, I was stuck playing the song in loop. Nominations, eh? You know me.

(OMG! I used an emoji in my post!)

(I’m being so melodramatic)

(Meh)

Ciao ciao.

              I don’t go out for private pleasure, only for survival needs (grocery, pharmacy, doctor, vet). Am working in home office and am lucky enough to live in the countryside with a big garden. People in the cities are not so well off and some have started to behave odd. Germany has managed to lower development of new Corona cases significantly, also our amount of intensive care beds is exuberant but the economy representants keep on screaming in politicians’ ears that we had to open, open, open to avoid a centennial economical disaster. (I can’t see a disaster in a 6 or 7 per cent loss of production, sorry economists)😄

              It serves the economy right, if you ask me. They have been snappy, greedy and exploiting for decades. They didn’t invest, they cut down interests on private accounts, they sucked out poorer countries, they chucked out employees by the row. Now this nice blow on the head will take them back to normality I hope😉

Third would be to create 3 new states which will be under UN protection: Kashmir, Palestina, and Kurdistan. What is your opinion, good ideas or romantic knick-knack?

  18. This was the first feed on WordPress today. I swear Bharath I loved your answers. And this is gonna be my longest comment on your blog…
    Let’s discuss it
    Beginning with Anushka’s description, you justified it completely. She’s worth it all. A wonderful human. And the way you portrayed her… Too good haa!

    The first answer was so honest…someone close ahaaa

    The second one, I love how you put forward your choice.. too many people at the beaches , mountains please.. cool one

    4th answer was the craziest of all. Stress deals with me.. you are amazing I swear.. I loved it to the core.

    You seem to know a lot about 5th answer. Impressive

    I never knew you could be a blabbermouth. I always knew you to be the quite one… Good to know there’s someone alike. High-five
    We gotta talk about a lot now. Haha!

    The answer you gave for friendship it was also a good one by the way.
    And the way you ended it all, it was fabulous trust me. I never knew this side of Bharath.
    For me you were always an unapproachable stubborn millennial.
    But this changed your image and for good I must add here.

    I am really really impressed by your answers. I found them really interesting.
    Congratulations for the award 🎉👏

      Anushka is amazing! Not just that but all the synonyms of it. Goa ruined beaches for me, Rashmi. I don’t like crowds and I’m a monster to myself when I stressed do I tend to isolate myself for a few minutes before getting back to normal.
      I am really quiet unless you get to know me and I am stubborn af. 😂😂
      When I talk, I don’t stop so I first give time to listen.
      And last but still the least, someone close, Han. Ab nahi. 😂😂

        Ab nahi… I know ab nhi.. that’s why you write dark stuff. But you see that good in that. At least there’s some inspiration. See if Bharath too begins to write about love and stuff, what different he’ll do? Let him write dark stuff which people connect to.

    You’ve answered most of the questions so tactfully it blows my mind. Plus, the fact that you dont think you’re too man to accept you like ‘romcoms’ is a nice thing and I sometimes feel guilty about my obsession with feel good movies when asked why I don’t watch more realistic things. I’m going to steal your answer for that from now on xD

      If Romcoms are only for women, why do men act in them? I hate stereotypes and I like what I like. Romcoms are fun! Besides I’m tired of watching one man take on a hundred, way too unrealistic. I’d love a feel good movie anytime! Any suggestions???

              Well..this is difficult question. Because I get expressionless 😜 or more appropriately faceless 😁

            15. You give out positive vibes. I’m not a positive person but yours is what I can take. It’s lighthearted positivity. Subtle.
              And that heart diagram what a good gesture. Thanks for that. 🙂

              Well.. about that heart diagram…I am always open for suggestions and learning..and if you thought it was needed…so it was😊

            17. I just do. People complain I’m a cynic so believe me when I say I get the positive vibes. It doesn’t always happen.
              You’re so considerate.

      1. But I have rarely heard guys admit that they like romcom. I can say the same and you are one of the bloggers I have known for a very long time. 🙂
