Yet another Tag!

Karin took the trouble to give me the questions of the tag on the comments of my previous post- and so here I’m –Thank You Karin- I enjoyed doing this one.

1) Was there any incident in your life which you feel, influenced you in particular?

Many incidents, I guess: Marriage, birth of my children, Death of my grandfather, and one another unpleasant incident which I don’t want to remember any more.

2) What are you afraid of? Please name at least ONE example!

I’m paranoid abt the health and well being of my loved ones.

3) Is there any nature-event, you particularly like (i.e. thunderstorm, rain, snow ect.)?

I like it best when the sky is overcast and there is a yellow glow in the horizon - just before the rains. There is something of the air then that makes me feel at peace- I don’t like heavy rains.

4) What kind of sport (if any) are you fond of or even actively pursue?

I’m afraid I’ve no interest in sports at all. I don’t even watch any sports. While in school, I used to participate in Running and Skipping relays and have even managed to win a few times but I was never passionate abt it. I loved running but the pressure of competing always put me off. ( if interested you may look up the answer to the question on my profile page and you’ll understand)

5) Do you easily get nervous or upset? "Blow up"?

Yes, I think I do- but may be I’m able to control my flare ups a little better nowadays. Atleast that’s what I’d like to believe- I must ask my children. I tend to get nervous when I’m getting late or even if I’m worried I’ll be late. Then another thing that completely rocks me up is when my loved ones fall sick. Then I’ve to really make a conscious effort to calm myself and think positive.

6) Do you dread getting older? Feel the biological clock ticking?

Well, while I don't actually 'dread' getting older, still when I spot yet another grey strand, I admit that something rankles somewhere. There have been random moments when I look into the mirror and have wondered if age is finally making footprints over my face/neck…but then I don’t brood over it. And now that I've started learning Bharathanatyam again, I've discovered that some postures which used to be very easy long ago now causes some agony. This does remind me that I'm no longer as agile as I used to be. I want to focus more on being healthy and cheerful.

7) Are you more a city-person or prefere the country-side?

I like the amenities of city life and the peace of the country side. It would be nice to visit the country side once in a while . Trichy does not feel too much like a bustling city and that helps, I guess.

8) Do you allow any kind of fashion to rule over your taste?

Not much, at least not beyond an experiment with the shape of the neckline of my kurta or sari- blouse.

9) Are you more on the introverted or extroverted side?

Somewhere in between- I’ve no problem going upto people and speaking, I’m not nervous in company, but I do find myself with lack of topics to talk about some times and when the silence looms large and loud, I’ve frantically racked my brains for small talk- and that is exhausting. I enjoy my own company a lot.

10) If you'd have to characterize yourself with one sentence - what would you say?

I guess I am an impulsive person who cannot hide emotions, and I love to laugh (guffaw) out loud without inhibition .

Hi Ardra,
These answers are BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks so much for having taken the time to do the tag - I HIGHLY appreciate it!
I am lost with one word though ...
Bharathanatyam - what is that? Anything connected with Yoga?

About Trichy - I have to check the map to know exactly where you're located!

Again - it is SO GREAT of you to have made the effort - thanks a million!
