The "Seven" Tag was passed on to me by Anitha the ThoughtRaker, who has a blog with some exquisite writing. I am in love with her poem on tearing up a rainbow!

Though I told her that my list would look almost like hers, I am making my own anyway.

7 things I wish to do before I die

1. Write a best-selling, award-winning book :)
2. Get fit enough to effortlessly run a marathon.
3. Travel around the world
4. Learn at least one song each in all major languages of the world.
5. Bring out an album.
6. Give a speech at a UN Conference.
7. Adopt a village, make it self-sufficient and raise it above the poverty line.

7 things I do not enjoy

1. Impoliteness
2. Pollution
3. Papayas
4. Hypocrisy
5. Bureaucracy
6. Corruption
7. Dirty toilets

7 things that attracted me to Blogging

1. The fact that everybody had a blog. :)
2. The fact that I felt I could write better than some of the bloggers I came across.
3. The fact that I love to write, and I thought a blog would be the right test-pad.
Yup, that's it! :)

7 things I say most often

1) Oh mannnn....
2) Wow!
3) What a life!
4) Yen gottha.. (Kannada for "Know what?")

3. India Unbound and The Elephant Paradigm - Gurcharan Das
4. All books by James Herriott
5. Books by James Michener - especially The Source and Hawaii
6. Enid Blyton's mystery series - Probably got hooked on to books thanks to "Dear Old Enid"
7. Ruskin Bond, RK Narayan
and Arthur Hailey, Robin Cook, Jeffrey Archer, Roald Dahl, P.G.Wodehouse and lots more!

7 Movies I want to watch

7 pieces of Music I enjoy

This is going to be very difficult.

5. Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, etc. etc.
6. Old Hindi Melodies, and a few new ones.
7. Folk songs.

No, I cannot stop, nor can I continue...... Aaaaaaaarghhh Help!!!
