I am: An Idealist. Honest. An Optimist.
I think:one day there will be peace, compassion, justice, freedom, happiness all over the world.
I want: to live to see World Peace; a better India; Politics sans crime and violence;equality and justice for all living creatures, including women and minorities world over.
I have: the power to do my bit.
I wish: I was more disciplined. Had more will power. Did not get so obsessed with the latest interest that I neglect everything else.
I hate:Bigots. Fundamentalists. MCPs. Fascists. Taliban. Communalism. Honor Killing. Gender Bias. Cruelty to animals. Narrow mindedness.
I miss: My dad...NO one in this world can hear and advise as patiently.
I fear: if we do not do something, this country will be ruled by Fundamentalists/religious fanatics/hypocrites ('Girls should not wear jeans to allure boys' kind of governments).
I feel: Very strongly about justice, fair play, privacy, freedom, equality, about state interfering with citizens' personal lives (e.g. rights for gays and lesbians/celebrating Valentine's day).
I hear: Extra sharp. Can be a nuisance sometimes.
I crave: Ras Malai & Kaju Katli.
I search:and never find an explanation for why God created a World so imperfect.
I wonder: how anybody can have such double standards, no conscience, closed minds, so much fear, no feelings, so much greed, such dishonesty...and still look normal. (upon meeting such people)
I regret: Nothing very seriously, just little things that can be amended- not going to the Gym regularly, not starting to drive earlier...not driving the more spacious, more comfortable, family vehicle yet...
I love: My family and pets. My causes. Democracy. My freedom. Any body's Freedom.
I ache: for injured stray animals looking for water, food and some love.
I care: About what happens to children on the streets. About women on pavements ...about little girls and boys growing up in homes where alcohol and violence ruin their childhood.
I am not: as independent and bold as I'd like to be. But I am trying.
I believe: If we really, really want something we do always get it.
I dance: Love dancing very much. Always amongst the first on the floor and amongst the last to leave.
I sing: tunelessly, while driving, in fact all the time. My family will do anything to stop my singing :)
I cry: a lot when I see, hear or even read about suffering...
I don’t always: speak my mind.
I fight: without seeming to fight. But I do fight for what I believe in. All the time.
I write: to communicate, to share, to get something out of my system ...
I win: Do I care to? It's never about winning or loosing for me.
I lose: Again it doesn't matter, lose today, try again tomorrow.
I never: give up. At least not easily.
I always: am very cautious. Check the doors are locked. Gas cylinder knob is down. Kids have their mobiles with them. The car has enough fuel. Burglar alarm is working.
I confuse:people's faces/names/roads/dates. But never Zodiac signs.
I listen: Willingly and with pleasure. I am a sounding board for many friends and acquaintances.
I can usually be found: On the net. At my home. With my kids. Reading something. Watching CNBC TV18\News Channels. In the Gym.
I am scared: but I am not a coward.
I need: to keep growing, learning something new, taking care of my health and making sure Husband, Daughter and Son do the same. (read nagging)
