https://crazienerds.wordpress.com/

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Tag the post with #awesomebloggeraward
  • Answer the questions you were asked
  • Nominate at least 5 bloggers & inform them of their nomination
  • Give them 10 new questions to answer
Let’s begin, shall we? πŸ˜‰

Questions asked to me:

Q1 Do you believe in spirituality?

Ans: No, I personally dislike the way spirituality is commercialized these days. I believe in humanity more than spirituality. If I can comfort a troubled soul in anyway then that’s the most spiritually satisfying thing for me. That being said I don’t judge or dislike anyone who indulges in spiritual activities, I respect their faith & outlook towards it.

Q2 Are you into gardening?

Ans: Sadly there isn’t a garden in my current house but yes I’ve always believed that nature inspires the poet within us, in its own mystic ways. As a kid I used to help my grandfather plant roses & there I learnt the lesson, that a person’s beauty just like the rose, can blossom even amidst the life’s deadly thorns.

Q3 Share the picture of any DIY project you’ve done, if any.

Ans: In my teenage days, the doors of our kitchen & living room were being changed and the carpenter got a piece of inferior wood my parents were furious & were about to dispose it off but I used the carpenter’s saw during his lunchtime, painted the sides & ended up making a rectangular pin-up board.

Q4 Share the best-loved post from your blog, with link.

Ans: Broken Wings – I wrote it, the night I had to spend at a bus stand in blistering cold. I palpably felt the wings of my hopes & dreams break within me, that night. It was my poetic prayer that streamed through my shattered soul that night. Link: https://writingrhymes.wordpress.com/2018/06/23/broken-wings/

Q5 Is there any other art form you’re familiar with, other than blogging? If yes, what is it?

Ans: I tried to draw a phoenix once for my very first blog post but ended up making a creature that looked like a drunk ostrich that’s when I realized that I wasn’t meant to be an artist with paint brush. However, off late I’m learning how to cook some exotic recipes (if that sounds creative) with an earnest intention of not witnessing my mother turn into Thanos (because of the mess I make in her kitchen while cooking).

Q6 Which is the most used application in your phone?

Ans: A close tie between Instagram & Whatsapp.

Q7 What’s the longest time you’ve slept so far, at a stretch?

Ans: Once I hadn’t slept for like 48 hours so when I crashed & burnt on my bed I ended up sleeping for 13 hours. Haters may call me lazy but that’s close the average sleeping hours of a lion & in the immortal words of Zlatan Ibramhimovic – “Lions don’t compare themselves to humans”. Lol xD

“Lions don’t compare themselves to humans”

Q8) Do you prefer reading short or long blog posts?

Ans: The number of words doesn’t matter to me, what matters is the content that a post has. I am equally impressed with a hard-hitting short yet intense post as I am with a long detailed & meaningful post.

Q9) Do you volunteer? Online or offline?

Ans: I volunteer to assist other new bloggers to build & grow their blog in their own unique ways. I try to connect with them via Instagram, email, fb & sometimes meeting them in person.

Q10) Was there a turning point in your life?

Ans: There were 2 contrasting turning points in my life 1) When my dad passed away due to cancer. I guess that day a part of me died within me as I aimed to transform myself from a callous child into a silent warrior. 2) The day I got my first 500 followers on WordPress. That was the day when from a ‘nobody’ I felt like ‘somebody’.

If you’ve reached this far then you’ve earned my sincere respect. ❀

      3. Hehehehehe… Now please don’t kill me.πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Initially, I never intended to share my name out here but, also nobody asked. But, later on as I got along with a few, they did ask and I couldn’t keep it hidden for long. So when you asked, I though t of playing around for a while. And then when you misunderstood my generic comment,πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ I gave you the task of finding it on your own. I knew, it wasn’t difficult though.☺️☺️

  5. I enjoyed reading your answers, Sidharth! You’ve beautifully expressed your emotions.

    Loved your craft, cooking experience and even the flashback on ostrich! You’ve grown up to be strong over the years, and I admire your sense of humanity. Finally, 13 hours of sleep isn’t so long, that too in such a tired state!

    I’m happy to read your response and it was good knowing more about you. Good day, Sidharth!

  8. “looked like a drunk ostrich ” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    I’ve never seen a drunk ostrich, would you be kind to show me one! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Jokes apart, I enjoyed reading your answers!
    And that tiny poster saying ” Because you’re timelessly Priceless” is striking! 😍
    I wish you will gradually learn either not to mess with kitchen or to clean it after doing that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    And finally a very big Congratulations! πŸ’β£

    1. Lol thank you, I’m glad you liked the answers. I surely would have shared the drawing with you but I put it in trash 4 years ago, so sorry for that. πŸ™ˆ
      If you remember my story priceless, Vincent wrote something similar about being timelessly priceless, while gifting the watch to his mother if you remember. So I’m glad you picked that up. 😏
      I’m still trying to adapt to kitchen, a highly disorganised and clumpsy person doesn’t deserve to be in kitchen, but as they say papi pate k liye kya kya nahi karna padta. But yea I’m learning. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜…
      Thank you once again for such a delightful comment.

        Yes I remember that, that’s why only I pointed that out and could understand it in a better way! ❀❀
        papi ke liye??? (I’ve never heard that before. πŸ˜…) Kindly elaborate😁
        I enjoy reading your work and then commenting on it! 😊

      2. I don’t have any the confidence nor the zeal to create another disaster, don’t you think the virus outbreak has already created enough troubles that you still want to witness a creative calamity of me picking up the pencil to draw something. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œ Papi pate (sinful stomach) k liye kya kya nahi karna padta as in things we have to do to fill the needs of our stomach. Thank you so much for your readership and support!

      3. Well, your creative calamity is nowhere near the virus. It would instead bring a big grin on our faces like this –> 😁😁
        Paapi pate Oho! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I thought it’s sinful address (pata) πŸ˜‚
        Yeah well, Maine karna shuru ni Kia so I’ve no experience! πŸ˜…

      4. A big grin on your face… More like my miserable drawing may cause vision difficulties to your eyes. Some of my closest friends were like we’d rather prefer to cry tears of blood rather than ever see your drawings again. So either you are brave or you have really good insurance policy. Lol good for you that you are away from the corporate world. Enjoy yourself to the fullest!

      5. Your welcome! I’m indirectly protecting your eyes from a hideous exhibition of drawing. You’ll lose the capability to enjoy a good painting once you check my horrible creation. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Anyway I’m content painting a picture through my words that’s more suitable for me. πŸ™πŸ˜…
