10. What do you think is the key to any successful relationship?
Communication and honesty together make for a successful relationship.

  1. I blog as my day job--you can actually get a lot of freelance assignments, if you still want to be a columnist. I use Elance--highly recommend it. I just saw that and thought it might help you reach your goal more quickly!

  4. Thank you so much, Judy Girl, I am truly honored! I got to know a little more about you with this! Chocolate - ah yes, we share that love in common - chocolate never fails to make me smile! You got to meet the Dali Lama? Have you told that story here? If so, send me a link, if not please do!! I think you will be an amazing teacher because you love learning and you have a joy for life that your students will appreciate! I suspect that one day you will write a book... and hopefully send me a signed copy! <3

    I have just finished writing a long post with my answers to the above. It will appear on my blog shortly after midnight, since I've already posted one long piece today. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you again for your friendship, you are such a bright spot in my life!

    Btw Like your family- my parents are also into teaching profession, I am a water sign too who loves to be near waterbodies and yes last but not least I wish to travel the world one day... :D - Hi-five on that! :))

    1. I still don't know in which profession I will settle down in life, I am a wanderer when it is about job and career. Have tried different careers, have studied different subjects. :)

    2. First thing that I see in people- Their eyes and their smile- both are supposed to be pleasant!

    3. Every super-power comes with a responsibility. Still if I have to choose one- may be invisibility- but then I don't want to pry into people's life- I want none as of now!

    4.First of all I want to invite God- he is the most famous name I have known! Then other two people will be ummm Nelson Mandela and Will Smith!

    5. My Favorite book is The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough. And movie I love Pinjar(Hindi) and Kate and Leopold (English)

    6.The lesson about how to cram for exam. Though I still lack in it.

    7. I normally pass my time listening to music- soulful. If not that then dancing, sleeping, writing and reading poetry (I love reading it)......

    8. It is all about traveling :)) I am stuffing my bucket with new lists every-day!

    9. My favourite Childhood memory- my whole childhood has been a favourite memory from the past! My mother fondly tells me the stories about it.

    10. I can become a polar-bear and can hibernate for a day. :P (embarrassed )

    11. Yes. I very much do believe in re-births. One of my grand aunt remembered everything about her previous birth from her routine life, her kids and husband to how she died. I would love to be born as----- human----a lady... (yes I am very much in love with my current life) :)
