Hey guys! This is a little mutual effort in form of a collaboration to know more about the blogger community and to spread cheer! These are a bunch of questions asked by the autumngirl@survivalguideforyourlife and my answers penned out to the best of my knowledge. Check out her blog, it is full of book recommendations (is there a thing as having too many books?, atleast not for me!), travel tales, baking scrumptious eats and general knowledge that’s good for your health: @AutumnGirl
Who are your top three favourite singers?
I absolutely adore music in a lot of forms, so asking for a top 3 would be too less! (I will name a few more..) I love music which entertains and has an impactful message wrapped with it. The singers on the top of my playlist are Taylor Swift (“You need to calm down”), Sia (“The Greatest”), Selena Gomez (“Back to you”), Camila Cabello (“Havana”) and Vidya Vox (she’s my all time favourite!).
If you could move to one part of the world where would it be?
I would like to move to Ireland, or maybe any island. Someplace different from the usual, where I could get a taste of the new culture and cuisine.
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only read 1 book for the rest of your life, which book would it be?
In hope to find treasure on a deserted island, I would settle for The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (I highly recommend this read, it stays on the top 10 books of all time on my list) and Tintin-Crab with Golden Claws (I love Tintin just too much, and this specific volume has a reference to find treasure on a deserted place just like The Alchemist!)
If you could meet any famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa from the ones who are gone (They still live in everyone’s heart and that is a reason enough to want to meet them!). From the ones who live; Michelle Obama (because just reading her biography isn’t enough), her personality makes you wish you could meet her atleast once; also I would love to meet Nigella Lawson (the celebrity chef) over a tea party.
If you only had one more day to live, what would your last meal be?
I would love to eat something I have never tried before, and if it is my last meal it gotta be a giant king size 8 course degustation!
Would you rather be immortal or invisible?
I would love to be invisible after stealing Harry Potter’s invisible cloak and sneak around book stores without the fear to get caught.
What are your top 3 tips for brand new bloggers who want advice on boosting their blog?
Originality is key, make sure your posts are checked out of plagiarism and are grammatically sound. Be regular and religious in your work, do it well and steadily (and that does not mean putting up something on a daily basis). Take feedback from the audience who genuinely like your work, build on the categories of your blog that you love to work on and that your audience love to see. I have gone through these points, and trust me, things have worked wonders for me!
How would you sum up India in 3 words?
Warm+Diverse+Full of culture!
What are your views on the current Kashmir crisis between India and Pakistan?
It is a road map to the ‘new India’! It is change for greater good. (Do watch the recent Bollywood movie ‘URI’, to get the taste of the past tensions and surgical strikes in Kashmir).
If you could be anyone for a day, who would you be and why?
I would kill to be Arya Stark for a day and explore around and beyond Westeros, eat a lot, ride on the big horses and fight the giant beasts in the dark woods!
