I was nominated by the gracious Ara from Recuperation. She manages a marvelous blog and all her posts are a reflection of her kind personality. Please do check her blog and shower her with your love and support. She deserves this and much more.
My answers to Ara’s questions :-
1.What social stigma does society need to get over?
I don’t know if I can ever have one specific answer to this question. What really bugs me at my current phase in life is that girls in Indian households who are single and have crossed the age of 30 are subject to a lot of pressure to get married. They are made to believe that their existence is worthless (despite being successful in their respective careers) if they don’t get married. The society keeps hammering negative thoughts in their parent’s minds, every single discussion revolves around prospective grooms, the girls are told to dress in a certain manner, groom themselves better, lose weight and many such hurtful comments to crush their self esteem. The society really needs to stop meddling in other people’s lives and pass unnecessary judgement based on their orthodox views.
2.What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?
Probably gossiping. I know gossiping is never cool but as a kid I never realized that. I try to not indulge in it that much as I find it uncool to talk about other people’s lives without having any facts checked.
3.What’s your secret talent?
I have a fairly decent memory when it comes to remembering people’s clothes. I know it’s completely useless talent to possess but I can recollect people and incidents from the color and type of clothes that they might have worn on a particular day.
4.Which is your best all time hobby?
The two ‘R’s in my life. Reading and running. Both help keep me sane and can cheer me up in seconds.
5.When did you realize that you loved writing ?
I always loved writing as a kid. I had a troubled childhood, writing in my diary was my biggest escape from the hardships that I’ve faced in life. Writing has always helped me clear me thoughts, for a over thinker like me, that’s a huge step in the right direction.
