Things that please me!
Okay, so Exquisitetagged me to write about things that please me. I am of the view the material things can never please you; they are only the source of convenience and necessity. There are certain things that I like or used to like such as movies (have my own collection), music, PC, Internet and the list goes on.
Today I’d like to pick three things that pleases me in some way.
Mark Twain said that good friends, good books and sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. I think he’s right. Good books are the ultimate source of pleasure, information, stimulation and imagination. I always feel good after reading something that touches my soul, my inner self. I would have shared my shelf picture… but er… I like privacy and to to be honest it is so stacked with books that it seems like crashing down 🙂
I would nonetheless share the photos of two books that are unforgettable to me due to one reason or the other. The first one is called The making of Asoka. This book will always be important for me since I won it in a draw. Believe me I had never won a single draw before that. If any of you used to read children magazine Taleem-o-Tarbiat you would know that it had a quiz section and those who used to have correct answers would get gift books published by Ferozsons. The problem was that many participants would have correct answers and then draw would come into play. My best buddy from school, lucky girl, won thrice in a draw. While I would be like, heck! what’s wrong with me. As a consolation I would only see my name published in the print.
So when I woke up one fine morning in 2002, I got a mail. I was asked to send my mailing address. I had even forgotten that I had ever participated in that online quiz. I was skeptical but I was proved wrong when within a month I got that big parcel right from UK. Won’t forget it. Winning is pleasurable and then winning a book that was about my favorite movie and actors. That feeling is still alive in my memory!
Book number 2 is Still Reading Khan. To understand my passion for books and for SRK it is enough to say that I own this book. Well this is the most expensive book I ever bought. I don’t think I’ll ever spend that much on any book 😛 I bought it for 5,000 Rs 😕 I am not kidding but I think it was worth buying.
Windows Live Messenger/Yahoo Messenger:
Well, I am addicted to both. It connects me with my loved ones. And yes, my messenger buddy list is not something like 50 0r 100 people. It is very limited 🙂
Lastly, cell phone! I like my current cell phone. I am not much into playing music on phone. But I like it for video and still camera and internet connectivity. Whenever I am taking rest I end up fiddling with it. Sending texts, setting alarm (snooze is wicked), writing quick short notes, ringing up my siblings at odd times, checking the time or just to see my way in it’s light when the power is out 😛
After messenger it is the second best thing.
That is it on my part. Although my list could have been long but I would limit it to three things like my fellow bloggers. I wish I had cute pets to talk about. But I have none! Gosh! I am so boring! 😛
I now tag:
