The expansionist meme

Axinia tagged me for this meme. I don’t like doing memes, but I have decided to do it as I don’t want to disappoint her. I’m not tagging anyone, though.

One religious work from a non-familiar tradition you’ll read:

I have almost no interest in organised religions. I have a few religious books belonging to different religions with me but I have not read them. Philosophy does interest me though and I have read the Dhammapada and திருக்குறள் (Thirukkural) but I don’t consider them as religious works. I would like to take a look at the Avesta as I am not familiar with it.

One music video-that you like-from your “least likely to listen to” genre:

I don’t know 😐

A book from a genre you almost never read, that you have read, or you will read (promise!):

Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen is a great writer and I mean no disrespect to her but I would never have read that book. I was forced to read it only because it was a part of my curriculum in high school. The curriculum had some fabulous books but I don’t quite understand why they included Pride and Prejudice 😕

Somewhere you’d never thought to go on holiday/vacation, and why it might be fun to go there?

Any remote and uninhabited island. I would like to escape from the crowds, the noise and the pollution for a few days.

A specific food you’ve never tried, but will because of this meme, honest!:

Raw tomatoes

A sport or game you really hate, or haven’t tried yet, but are willing to give one more go:

I am a sports fan and I like all sports and games. I haven’t tried winter sports as I live in a hot tropical city. I would like to try out downhill skiing or ice-skating or even curling if I get a chance.

A style of dance you probably won’t try (we won’t make you promise on this one):


A career job you don’t feel you’re suited for, and why:

Surgery . . . I hated dissecting (dead) cockroaches and frogs in my high school biology practical class.

An item that’s “thinking out of the box” for this meme that hadn’t been included:

Who would you like to be born as if you were to be born again?

If there’s one thing in life you wanted to do, and will do because of this meme, what will it be?

Learn to read and write my father tongue, Telugu, as it is one of India’s national and official languages and is also called “the Italian of the East” as every word in Telugu ends in a vowel sound.

  5. Sakhi,

    You’re welcome! I did try a slice of a raw tomato(without the salt), but I didn’t like it 😐 And I studied in Chennai. About Pride and Prejudice, they did take it off the curriculum after students and teachers complained that it was boring 🙂
    I’ll do the tag as I don’t want to disappoint you, Vishesh 🙂

    Спасибо! 🙂

    Gràcies! Yes, I like sports. And I love football. It’s a pity that Euro 2008 is coming to an end. Ens veiem! 🙂

    hahahaha…yes its a pity, because all the matches are really interesting!!! I’m enjoying euro-cup too!

  7. Sí Francina, Espanya seem to have broken their quarterfinal jinx! And now they meet Alemanya in the final of Euro 2008! Can the Espanyols beat a resurgent Alemanya and lift the trophy?

  8. francina says:

    I dont know Raj, but its amazing they arrive at the final!!!

  9. Yes, it is amazing. I hope the Espanyols are able to repeat what they did in 1964 i.e. lift the trophy!
