We have been awarded..

..by Maxu! I first met him on my first day at Google. One grinning aloof face amongst many tense ones and of course one of the 3 men in a predominantly female crowd. The trainer asked all of to introduce ourselves and share what we did over the weekend. Most of us said ‘politically right’ things like, getting ready for first day of work/chilling at home. He was the only one who said, ‘I was playing cricket till 4am and got ready and came to work’ very matter-of-factly at that! Jaws dropped and everyone was looking at this overgrown guy who dared to even say something like that. That’s Max for you. No one he’s a mini-celebrity amongst bloggers.

I normally don’t like to do tags. But this one came with an award and I met Maxu yesterday after almost 3 years. So, cheers to that!

The rules of the tag are: Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better.


I’ve never really written about my family here in all our chaos and splendour. But I wrote this one post as a tribute to my grandfather who was a brilliant person. This post talks about Diwali at home! These posts here are written by my favoritest cousin and are super funny!


Surprisingly, I have only one post dedicated to my friends. I wrote this at the end of my first year at Hyderabad as a sort of thank you for all the people who made it special. This one is about my imaginary childhood friend. This one is about the super funnest weekend I spent with K, one of my best friends.


This blog is filled with memes. That’s kinda why I started this blog in the first place. So my picks would be this this and this

My love:

I’ve attempted to write quite a few sappy stories here. None of them are exactly real, but that’s the closet mention to romance that’s been made here. Posts here here and here

Anything I like:

I’ve linked some of my favorite posts here for no reason at all! Here here here here here and here

Phew, so there you go Maxu, you can’t not call this a filler post ok?

Now, to pass the tag and the award on. For a change, I think I’ll actually tag people. So here’s my list

Kalpana – She was my trainer at Google. Super trainer, super mom, super person and moreover a super blogger. Her Dear Raunak series are extremely personal and moving. I’m a big fan!

Morpheus – Again an ex colleague and a brilliant writer. Quirky and witty.

Mercury – Best friend, inspiration to blog, excellent writer, full of life! Again, a big fan

Inba – I started reading her blog only recently. Super wit, sharp tongue, great observation, brilliant posts.

Afrin – We share quite a few common interests. Photography, Isha, and rambling in general. You must start putting up proper posts again, no one liner πŸ™‚

I’m adding 2 more to the list

Nandini – Ex googler, smart, witty, super energetic, now in Amrica. Her posts are always sincere and extremely entertaining!

Dilip – Fellow photowalker, photography mad, techy, brilliant writer, great company, razor sharp tongue, hilarious in all!

My good deed for the year is done πŸ™‚
