Liebster Award

Thank you, Anonymously Hal for nominating me! She’s a wonderful writer whose like a rebel without any rules & that’s what I really appreciate in her writings. Please do visit her blog & read some of her writings, I’m sure you’ll like them: https://anonymouslyhal.wordpress.com/

Rules

1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
2. Share 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you.
4. Nominate 11 bloggers and make them happy!
5. Think 11 questions and ask them to your nominees.
6. Notify your 11 nominees.

Facts:

1. I love interacting with poets, bloggers & artists. By interacting with them, I get to learn so much & this helps me to elevate my own creative horizon.
2. I’m blessed with the titles of Prince of Darkness & Poetic Psychopath, which often make me feel as if I’m a product of a lovemaking session between Lord Voldemort & Shakespeare, lol. However, In reality, I’m a very reserved, harmless & emotional person.
3. You’ve ever seen the quiet weirdo who prefers staying in a corner, entranced in his own thought. That’s probably the kind of person I am socially around people. I may appear as a lively chatterbox, but I’m more of an introvert in real life.
4. I went through depression to the point, that at one stage I was suicidal. That’s the reason why most of my past poems are dark & melancholic. However, I’ve learned to survive with a smile now & certainly not suicidal anymore. ❀
5. I’m not a morning person. I stay up till late night as I enjoy the darkness & the tranquility that accompanies it.
6. I absolutely love to collaborate with bloggers/poets, although I can’t say if my fellow collaborators always carry the same sentiment about me.
7. I’m a sapiosexual. It’s always the thoughts & the overall personality of a female that captivates me, rather than her physical traits.
8. I loathe fake people. I always respect an honest hard truth rather than artificial sugar-coated lies.
9. I love cakes! If you are close to me I’d probably give you one of my kidneys but I sure as hell won’t share my cake with you, because according to me underwears & cakes aren’t meant to be shared with others.
10. I have certain personal rules that I follow while writing a poem, like a poem should have a constant rhyme, the emotions should be uncensored & in a line, there shouldn’t more than 11 words.
11. I create memes every now and then.

The 11 questions that were asked to me are as follows (along with the answers):

Q1. What is your favorite food?
Ans 1. Anything vegetarian, for which I don’t have to pay. lol!

Q2. What country are you from?
Ans 2. I know I am annoying at times, so please don’t send goons to kidnap me lol, just kidding. I’m from India, the country that’s blessed with diverse culture & also the country turns into some sort of a microwave during summers (due to the immense heat).Β 
Q3. What’re your favorite movies?
Ans 3. The Pursuit Of Happiness, A Walk To Remember, 3 Idiots, The Joker… To name a few.

Q4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Ans 4. Why would anyone like to ruin the perfection I contain within me lol. On the serious note, I have my flaws, but I embrace them rather than despise them. For it’s these glorious imperfections that make us all a limited edition in our own right! πŸ˜‰

Q5. What is your profession?
Ans 5. A banker by profession, poet by heart.

Q6. Biggest regret in life?
Ans 6. There are a lot of things I regret, but perhaps not being able to help my dad reduce his financial troubles while I was in college… That is something that I regret the most in life.

Q7. Favorite word?
Ans 7. “Perhaps” as it leads to so many poetic paradigms.

Q8. Why do you follow my blog?
Ans 8. Because I love the honesty of your thoughts, the intensity of your emotions & the flamboyant flair that you possess as a writer.

Q9. Who’s your role model?
Ans 9. I appreciate some people, but I don’t consider anyone as my role model, because I feel trying to be like someone would be a waste of the original me.

Q10. If you were an ice cream flavor what would you be?
Ans 10. Chocolate, as it sinfully delights most of the people. xD

Q11. Do you believe in an afterlife?
Ans 11. No, I live in the moment. I don’t believe in Karma either because I feel it may affect the decision that I may otherwise take based on my logic & reasoning. For example: If I see a cake, I pounce on it, regardless of the consequences lol.

Note: Based on my personal experiences in the past, I’ve always felt it’s better to be an enigma that others wonder rather than an open book that people can easily understand. I know my last poem made some of my readers cry, I sincerely apologize for that. Making you cry was certainly not my intention but instead, it was more like something that I needed to get off my chest. With that all being said, with this post I have tried to entertain you, with a desire to hopefully make you smile by revealing a bit about who I truly am as a person. Thank you again, Anonymously Hal; for considering me worthy of this recognition.

If you liked this post, then I humbly request you to like, comment & follow my blog. πŸ™‚

  1. I loved your answers, and thank you for nominating me! πŸ˜€ We are the tame in that I also like online conversations online, and I often fade into the background when I’m with others.

  3. Sidharth, thank you so much for this nomination. Truly, I feel so honoured!! And I want to say that I think you are such an amazing people-person online, in spite of being introverted offline.

    I loved reading all your questions and answers. A Prince-of-Darkness vegetarian Poet-Psychopath, what more could one hope for in a blog-friend?! 😜 I feel so lucky so be in this crew with you!! πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜‡ ;))

    Also, I hear you about depression and suicidal feelings, as perhaps so many of us can from time to time. It’s wonderful that you’ve overcome them through your amazing self expression in writing.

    And I love cakes too!!! (Who on earth can’t love cakes – cakes keep the years (or months, or weeks, or days!) properly measured, that’s what I say. ;))

    If you’re as awesome a banker as you are a blogger and poet, the banks are as lucky as we all are here on wordpress. πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰

    Again, loved your post, and thank you so very much for including me in the nominees, I very very much appreciate it. Virtual hugs, πŸ€—πŸ€—xoxoxo Lia

  4. Congrats and thanks for nominating me but I find it too difficult to nominate 11 bloggers as I don’t know who would like it and who would not. Besides i don’t like answering direct questions about myself in general and prefer to leave this to one to one interactions.

    Liked by 2 people

    1. You can always leave it as open nomination in case you aren’t sure about your nominees that’s what I usually do when I find myself in a similar situation. But I truly respect your privacy so that’s perfectly alright. I genuinely respect your creative art so felt this post would be incomplete without nominating a fantastic blogger like yourself. However, I truly enjoy one to one interactions if you want to get in touch then you may do so in the form of email, fb, insta or WhatsApp (my number is +91-9811310426) whatever suits you the most according to your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you. πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks Sidharth, that is kind of you. I noted with interest that you like me are a banker on the prosaic side of things. So we have that in common aside from poetry my friend.

  6. You know what, there were so many instances while reading your post that I felt like it was me talking about myself.❀️❀️

    I now realised why do you always say the things you’ve said about me. Felt like a male version of me.😭😭😭

    From your difficult time with yourself, to you being the quiet soul, love for memes, sapiosexual was 😍❀️

    There are many more similarities.😱😱

    1. Haha by calling me a male version of yourself you already made me feel temperamentally in a more beautiful place. πŸ™ Thank you for your kind words, and taking out the time to go through my post.
