Jhatpat tag!


Poonam tagged me for this jhatpat  tag :

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4.

Certainly it was true that a part of me hoped desperately to be adopted by Mr Tanaka after my mother died; but another part of me was very afraid (Memoirs of a Geisha).

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can & catch air?

Newspaper which I was reading five minutes back before I started doing this tag.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Last night I watched Jailed Abroad : Peruvian Cases on National Geographic Channel.

4. Without looking, guess what time it is?

It’s going to be 12:00 in the noon.

5. Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?

11:44 am (Ah! I need to finish this tag by 12:00).

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

The sound of the ceiling fan and somewhere outside my balcony, I can hear the honking of cars.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

I stepped outside at 6:00 am this morning to attend my French class at Alliance Française de Delhi 😛

8. Before you started this Q&As, what did you look at?

Poonam’s blog to copy the tag.

9. What are you wearing?

A red t-shirt and blue colored shorts.

10. When did you last laugh?

In the French class where people were hilariously speaking French (not to forget mixing up the genders as well).

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in?

The walls are painted in light cream color with a lamp and a tube light fixed on the wall (sorry you will never find posters on my room’s wall unlike other teenagers) 😉

12. Seen anything weird lately?

No, not yet.

13. What do you think of this quiz?

The post’s name speaks volumes about it.

14. What is the last film you saw?

Kaminey (you can read the review I wrote in the last post).

15. If you became a multimillionaire overnight, what would you buy?

Unlimited stock of chocolates , an exotic spa exclusively for me and I might consider living  in a barsati in Delhi.

16. Tell me something about you that I dunno!

I love to write 😛 😉  ( a very obvious answer)

17. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

Remove the reservation system and bring a change in the educational system of the country which will focus more on the talent and ability of the student’s rather than judging them only on basis of marks. (I want to replace the concept of Academic Quotient by Intelligence Quotient).

18. Do you like to Dance?

Yes, I have completed Inter advance level of  SDIPA( Shiamak Davar Institute of Performing Arts) .

19. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?

20. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?

Still thinking………………………………… 😉

21. Would you ever consider living abroad?

No, I want to spend my life in Delhi. It’s the perfect home for me and I think there is something about this city which holds me back, an intangible connection.

22. What do you want GOD to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?

Welcome to heaven ! 😛 😉

Finally I tag Amit, Oorja , Kanagu and Vikas.

Music for your soul


Music is the divine contemplation of the soul. It is the longing of the heart , a string which if hit at the right note makes the world look beautiful. It brings out the heart felt sorrow, elates the soul and above all shows the way to be in touch with the almighty residing within you when life brings sheer misery and loneliness.
Well this post is dedicated to all the music lovers for music knows no boundaries of race and religion. Interestingly one of my personal favorite is meticulously appreciated in this post. 😀

VOLARE (Italian for the infinitive form of the verb “to fly”)!!! Well I don’t know how many of you have heard this song, but it is a peppy Italian number by the Gipsy Kings. Frankly speaking, I don’t even know the exact wordings of the song, but if you play the video (scroll down) you will find a picturesque background in black and white with young girls dancing to the foot tapping number and to add on the pulse and groove to the song the melodiously played guitar makes you also feel like jumping on the dance floor and getting into the mood for some salsa. 😀
I first heard this song at one of the SDIPA show and it left me thoroughly mesmerized.
So if you are a music lover or wannabe musician, then just go ahead and listen to this song and surely it is going to leave you asking for more. 😀

Feeling mesmerized then go for the lyrics :

Original version

Pienso que un sueno parecido
No valvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y d’improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito

Volare oh oh
Cantare oh oh oh oh
Nel blu dipinto di blu
felice di stare lassu

Mas alto que el sol

Mienstras el mundo se aleja despacio

Despacio de mi Una musicadulce tocada

Pienso que un sueno parecido
No valvera mas
Y me pintaba las manos y la cara de azul
Y d’improviso el viento rapido me llevo
Y me hizo volar en el cielo infinito

English version

sometimes the world is a valley
of heartaches and tears
and in the hustle and bustle of sunshine appears
but you and i have a love always there to remind us
there is a way we can leave all
the shadows behind us

volare oho cantare ohohoho
let’s fly way up to the clouds
away from the noisening crowds
we can sing in the glow of a star that i know
all we lovers enjoy peace of mind
let us leave in confusion and all dissilusion behind
just like birds on a wire and the
rainbow together we’llfind

volare oho cantare ohohoho
no wonder my happy heart sing
your love has given me wings
nel blu di pinto di blu
felice distare lassu
no wonder my happy heart sing
your love has given me wings
