The Silly ME!

Jodi and Aarthi tagged me to write 8 random facts about myself and Sameera has tagged me to write 7. Wat should I do.. ok I will write 9 random things about myself.

Tagging rules: 1. When tagged you must link to the person who tagged you. 2.Then post the rules before your list, and list eight random facts/habits about yourself. 3. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to eight other bloggers.

Hmmm..its quite difficult to select only 8/9 random things about me.

So here I go with 8/9 random facts about me very randomly.

1) I love my name. I was named Preetilata after the famous freedom fighter Preetilata Waddedar. She argued that many young people have already given their lives for the freedom of the motherland, now it was the time for the girls to embrace the same fate of honor.
I also share my birth month with her. To know more about Preetilata Waddadar, plz go to

Preetilata waddadar

I share my b’day with Kaviguru Rabindra Nath Thakur. Each n every word will fail to describe him. He is such a legend. The greatest writer and artist ever born on this earth. The first Nobel Prize Winner of our country ( for his collections of immortal poems called GEETANJALI) and the author of our National Anthem. My day starts with listning to Rabindra sangeet and ends with reading his poems or short stories or novels.

To know more :

Rabindra Nath Thakur

I bow before both these above mention legends.

2) When I was in 10th std. My computer teacher had proposed to me but I had a crush on my tuition teacher. Atlast I hv decided to marry Shaan (the famous bollywood singer) but alas he got married within next couple of months. :(


3) Once I considered Hector of Homer’s Illiad my ideal match. (But now I know such people can only exist in books and there’s nothing called an ideal match. It is just a manupulation of our needs, desires and dreams.). Today also I am awed by him. I do have a soft corner for tragic characters like Hector of Illiad and Karan of Mahabharata and Charles Dicken’s David Copperfield.

Hector(Eric Bana) from the movie Troy


4) I have dated:
In high school ------- Science
In college ----------- Arts
And now --------- Commerce

But at the end I have fallen in love with Poetry and Painting ( my childhood Sweethearts)
[HMMM..thus in a single sentence I can describe myself as "jack of all trades but master of none"]


5) I am crazy about nature and colors and at the same time black n white also fascinates me a lot.
I cannot resist myself from picking up fallen leaves and flowers. I think Peepal Leaves are the most beautiful leaves and painting on them gives a new colorful dimension to my multidimensional life.


6) As I don’t own a camera and not even a camera mobile phone so I am deprived of clicking picks. But still I guess I can be a good photographer if I have one. [so anybody out there planning to gift me a cam ?? ;) ]. Jokes apart I seriously do want a good cam. I wish I can buy one soon.

I took this photograph few months back from a frenz cam. How is it..?


7) When I was in high school, a rumour was spread that this time there will be a snowfall in Delhi. As obvious everybody laughed at it and ignored it. But I actually believed in that silly rumour and waited for the snowfall very desperately and excitedly.
Ahem!…ahem!…. I know I am an idiot !!!
But till date my fingers are crossed and will be crossed till God knows what time.
Who knows when God will listen to me! If there can be a snowfall in Sahara Desert then why not in New Delhi!! May be one fine day….. :D
( I guess now u guys can imagine how much I love snow. I almost became half crazy and half lunatic when I was in Kashmeer last to last year)


8) I do have a very bad habit of doodling and scribling everywhere. My notebooks are full of doodle drawings plus silly but cute scribbles. And every day my maa scolds me after discovering new doodles on my washed bed sheets and jeans. [When I was a kid the walls of my home were full of doodles and scribbles.] :P


9) I love my eyes and through them I want to explore the beautiful world as much as possible. Even after my death I don’t want them to be closed. So I’hv decided to donate my eyes. No this is not a fake decision at all or not even to impress anybody but this is something I have decided to do honestly.


Now as per rule i will tag,









Compassion Unlimited

  10. Hi Preetilata,
    Thanks for the honor of tagging me but I'm really very sorry to inform you that I don't do tags, memes and awards. I'm deeply honored by your tag, don't get me wrong. It's just that I don't want to omit anybody when my turn comes to tag or give an award to. I just don't want to hurt the feelings of those I will not be tagging. I treasure each and every person that visits and honors my blog and I treat everybody equally and without discrimination. I have my own reasons for blogging and I hope people will respect those reasons. Anyway, thanks again for tagging me and I hope we remain as friends. Smile always and have a pleasant and fantastic day.

  11. Hey thanks for taking up the tag...n i was waiting to c ur eyes..thanks for tht too..btw u hav pretty eyes..n the pic is jus having a cam..but still not able do anythng big with tht..gr8 work...:)

  12. Nice knowing more about was lovely reading your thoughts...I have also done quite a few tags last week!

  13. Great tag Preeti. You dont visit mah blog this days huh ?

  14. Hi Preetilata,
    In compliance with my promise to visit your blog again and to make comments on your post, here goes.

    1. Now we all know where you got your name and the distinguished persons who celebrate the same date for their birthdays. I do not know Preetilata Waddedar (I will read about her in my next visit here) but the eminent Rabindranath Tagore (that's how they spell his name in our history books)is so well known for his exquisite poetries and other notable achievements.

    2. Ha, ha, ha. You have your usual crushes before, with your tuition teacher, with Bollywood star Shaan, with Hector of Iliad, with Karan and David Copperfield. My, my, my. You have such strong imaginations when you were younger. Did any of them made a proposal to you? He, he, he *lol*

    3. Your favorite subjects are science, arts, commerce, poetry and painting. You are a jack of all trades and master of none. Hmmm, sounds familiar.

    4. So you want to paint on peepal leaves and you love the vibrant colors of nature. It's the creative spirit in you awaiting to be unleashed. Watch out world. Here comes Preetilata. He, he, he *lol*

    5. So you want to be a camera buff and wants to get hold of a camera.
    (Paging all admirers and wannabe suitors of Preetilata. Now you know what to give her as present on Christmas.) You might end up with a stack of cameras in your lap. He, he, he, *lol*

    6. Ha, ha, ha. So you dreamed on seeing actual snowfall in New Delhi. It was almost an impossible dream. Probably in the future, you will be able to see that, what with the global warming that have caused havoc and unnatural weather patterns. If the people of New Delhi will experience that, they already know whom to blame. Ha, ha, ha. But wait you actually experienced snow in Kashmeer. How's that for realizing your dreams. Better still you can marry an Eskimo in Alaska and have a lifelong experience of snow. He, he, he *lol*

    7. So you doodle a lot even in your mother's beddings and in the walls of your house. You must be a budding mural painter or a habitual vandal (those who spray paint walls with graffiti)he, he, he, *lol*

    8. Ah, I love those beautiful, soulful eyes. It is as if I am looking at your very soul. So noble of you to donate your eyes to somebody just in case St. Peter knocks on your door (knock on wood, perish the thought).

    There, I already made an exhaustive comments on your personal tag. I will be sending them via email to all my correspondents. he, he, he (joke only) Thanks again for your friendship. God bless and have a pleasant and eventful day.
