Trick or Treat

If bloggers had their own Halloween and could go from blog to blog collecting “treats,” what would your blog hand out?

A moment of truth. Doesn’t exactly cut it as a treat though.

I always find Halloween very fascinating. Too bad it isn’t celebrated here in India, just among few pockets of people here where I live in Mumbai, but too bad I’m not much of a social elite either.

As Dexter Morgan puts it, “I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask… not just me. People think it’s fun to pretend you’re a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I’m not. Brother, friend, boyfriend – All part of my costume collection.”

I feel that’s true for many of us.


Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.

I remember my first day of college back in 2010. Suffice to say, it was not something I want to remember. In a way uneventful, boring day with a petty fight against the professor right in the morning within some minutes of college beginning. That bad start is still sort of lingering.
