I was nominated by the lovely prajakta for the love-hate challenge, and here goes my list!
Ten things that I love –
- Shahrukh Khan, the love of my life and I pretty much objectify him so he has to top this list! I love this man, to the moon and back.
- The tingle that I feel when I read a romantic conversation between two protagonists in a book, needn’t be entirely romantic, witty flirting works too.
- Reading a book over a cup of coffee in a fortress of pillows and blankets while it’s raining outside.
- A cup of strong chai after a long day at work.
- Chocolate/ice cream/ brownies/ cake (you get the gist, right?) on the days that I feel like nothing is in my favour, to just take a big bite of it and surrender for the day. Or ponder on life’s problems over a plate of steaming hot pav-bhaji, chocolate milkshake and dahi puri 😛
- Long late night conversations and jamming sessions.
- Handwritten letters.
- The hindi songs of the 60s and 70s, because there can be no voice more melodious than Rafi’s or Mukesh’s or for that reason Kishore Kumar too!
- Watching the latest Bollywood releases, I try to catch up on almost every decently watchable movie alone and then manage to sing all the songs out loud 😛 Yeah, if you have heard your neighbour annoyingly singing the songs in the theatre, there is a very high chance that we have already met 😀
- To finish what I had planned for the day, that feeling of achievement when I tick things off my to-do lists.
Ten things that I hate –
- People who spit and litter.
- Not saying please and thank you while asking/ after taking favours/things.
- When small talk is made just for asking a favour, why beat around the bush?!
- Extra chirpy people when you are discussing extremely sad events. If you don’t bring your sad stories or chocolate and its cousins to the table, please don’t even bother!
- Not finding things at the moment that I need them, the rest of the time the damn things keep running around creating a mess!
- People who don’t respect others, be it anyone, rich or poor, pretty or ugly. It takes a little to give someone else the dignity that they deserve.
- When people knowingly cross limits, be it in relationships or friendships.
- When we don’t realise that it takes little to make a difference, if people like us try and act helpless when all it takes is to raise your voice or make a little donation, as much as it costs for a cup of coffee at a fancy place.
- When people throw stones or harass street dogs.
- Eve teasers.
And I nominate –
