10 things you didn't know

Random bits of information about myself:

1. I hate being right handed. Lefties are so much cooler!
2. Only two things can make me cry. India and Innocence.
3. Sometimes I wish I could chuck it all and pursue a career in the arts...music, cinema, photography, anything. Creativity stirs something in me. I also regret not being able to pursue a career as a cricket test match umpire...sigh!
4. If I could change something about my appearance, I'd remodel my nose.
5. Bengali, Urdu and Telugu are sweetest languages I have ever heard.
6. I can never choose between mountains and beaches. I love them both!
7. Words I use most frequently these days are,'whatrussaying?', 'what bloody?' (I'll explain this later) and 'right'.
8. I am too much of an idealist for my own good.
9. I beleive religion is divisive.
10. My favourite food in the world in 'parshe macher jhol'.(Quite unsure what its called in English. If any of you know, please let me know.)

Well this is 2005's last post. Hope you guys have a blast bringing in the new year. Please be careful and responsible in your revelries. Hope to see you all in 2006!

Cheers!
Abhishek.

Something I regret not pursuing also..........music.....started quite a few times.....changed more than half a dozen teachers, but never took it up seriously. Wish i did!!!!

Would love to learn to dance, but somehow feel I'm born with two left feet.......can Never learn, try as I may!

Why whats wrong with your nose?? Heh :P

And have you ever sat on the left side of a leftie during a meal??? Most uncomfortable! You keep knocking elbows and generally jostling for elbow space...particularly is you are eating with knife and fork!!

And one last thing..how does one go about being a professional cricket test match umpire?? I actually never thought about it...

Shubho Noboborsho!!And thonu nava saal di mubaraka...just learnt that from a Sardarni friend..am totally kicked about it and am trying it on everyone :)

Abhishek Chatterjee said...

rita - thnks and same to you 2!

ron - i just dont like it! i would have prefered something more acquiline..and mubaraka to you too! and as for cricket umpiring, there are tests etc. one has to start at the domestic cricket level and work upwards...
parshe macher jholer engriji kii??
