10 Survey Questions

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you are not anonymous, do you wish that you had started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?

I am not blogging anonymously and I never ever wished to blog in such a way for I always loved my real identity. Good or bad, I wanted to be myself whenever I do something.

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.

  I am from a place where women are always in shackles. They are  financially and even emotionally dependent. Arranged marriage is what normally happens. You would get married to an unknown person. Your opinions are not sought for anything that totally related to your life. But I was adamant that I would get married only after establishing a career and made clear that arranged marriage was not my cup of tea.

A person who is confident and knows her true self.

Incredible India

 This is the text I received on my mobile...I do not think I should clarify further.

What is India??? " 
A nation where Pizza  reaches home faster than Ambulance and Police.

Where you get car loan at 8% but education loan at 10%.
Where rice is Rs.20/- and sim card is free.
Where people worships Goddess Durga and kills brutally the female foetus.
Where Olympic shooter wins gold, govt gives 3 crore (30 million) and another shooter dies fighting the terrorists, the govt gives 1 lakhs ( 100 000).

Really an Incredible India
