7 X 7 Tags

I usually am very reluctant to respond to tags. But This one was irresistable.

7 things I wish to do before I die

1 Watch a Michael jackson Concert
2 Read all 4 vedas
3 Write a Book
4 Become a Politician (Chief Minister of TN to be precise)
5 Do Something to improve/market/improve-tourism Temples of South India.
6 Live over 100 years. (I try to login-messenger/walk-in when people talk about me)
7 Make a mainstream commercial Tamil movie (With item dance et all)

7 things I do not enjoy doing:

1 Listening to some parents talking about acheivements of their kids. (No matter what it is I dont think too much of it. And Some parents have even praised the smooth way in which their kids soiled the diaper)
2 Do my stuff myself (Like wash my own coffee cup, plate)
3 Hard Work
4 Worrying about uncertainities (It doesnt stop me from being paranoid)
5 Being Politically correct - Make small talk just for the sake of it - Adjust to Society.
6 Play any form of Antakshari
7 Search for a job

7 things that Attracted Me to Blogging

1. Ekta Mehra was the first blog I read.
2. Voyeurism
3. I like Writing
4. I am a rabble rouser. This is a good way to rouse... rabble
5. Keep in Touch with other people
6. This ventilates my frustrations in life.
7. Good Timepass

7 things I say most often

1. Enna Nakkala (are u kidding)
2. Podalanga (Its a vegetable - but i use it when i want to say 'bull shit')
3. Narayana
4. Elai
5. Pullai ( i call my wife/mom/girl-cousins this way)
6. Ammmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaa ( The movie Anjali's lifelong impact on me - I say this the way Anjali says it when she comes back home and calls Revathi from her bed). - It freaks out a lot of people when i suddenly say it. My wife took a long time to adjust to this.

Good list. A lot of stuff that I can call my own too (the Vaishnavisms, Thamizh cinema stuff etc.). Major point of difference - I LUV to play AntAkshari :-)

Hawkeye said...

thennavan said...

So can the need to watch MJ ;-)

anush said...

Sowmya said...

Thanks for posting the tag! Enjoyed reading it.
Become a Politician (Chief Minister of TN to be precise)
-south madras constituency'la ninna engal vottu ungalukke :)

Casement said...

A funny thought occured to me while reading your '7 things to do...', would you cast MJ in your item dance number?!

Sowmya said...

@casement - that was very funny! ROTFL!

Hawkeye said...


dont worry! only 10% of those who have started end up in kodambakkam and only 1% of those will actuallly do a movie.

so our actual competition maybe less ;-)

Hawkeye said...


ya its a family disease. if any of ur siblings were a rajini fan..i'd understand.

Hawkeye said...


good answer :-) but then need to MJ is kind of in the haemoglobin. not curable.

Hawkeye said...


regular visitor to ur blog too. welcome back dude!

yuvan is good in patches but not as consistent.

Hawkeye said...

Hawkeye said...

casement (and sowmya),

thennavan said...

Bharath, these days they do gene splicing and modification (genetic engineering-la) and you are talking about just blood components. Don't worry, where I work, "aaLaiye maaththidalaam" (Thillu Mullu Gundu Kalyaanam solra maadhiri) :-)

Anonymous said...

Just curious..

What's the significance of Sept 18th..?

Hawkeye said...

sept 18th is when anjali was born (she "died" same day too)

Murali said...

ashwin said...

Kaushik said...

Your about me/blog is a kind of idea I've copied onto my blog. Acknowledged you for that. Thanks. Have also referred to you in the context of hypocrisy, I hope you don't mind.
And not sure if it is relevant/needed, wanted to apologise for a not-so-pleasant reference to you in one of my much-much-earlier posts. I'm much less childish now, and also somewhat understand what you were trying to say in that post on LKS' blog, so kindly adjust. :D
Oh and before you say anything, I'm also from PSBB, so... :D

Kaushik (TG)

Kaushik said...

Shucks, just realized I have a PSBB-related post in my blog's front page. If, in the unlikely case that you are going to look through any of my posts, ignore this one, illena naan kizhinjen. :D
Also, it's ok if you don't publish my comment(s), I was basically looking for a way to communicate with you, didn't know your email id, so commented.

Ha ha ha. I love how you list "voyeurism" as one of the reasons for blogging. I realised that once I started reading blogs, I was surprised at how interested I was in the personal lives of people I didn't even know. :P That was a sad revelation for me. :D
