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.

Space Culture?

NASA is building a new Voyager spacecraft that will carry the best of modern human culture. What belongs onboard?

This question did quite confuse me a bit, is it the noun one of ideas, beliefs, customs of various societies/places around the world, or the biology verb one meaning like tissues cells,
bacteria, etc.?

In case of former, well it’s an interesting question, considering either people like/are proud of culture(s) of others/their own, but at the same time are quite critical of the same. And worse, it can go to extremes. AND, in many cases, they are not wrong too! In the name of culture, there is tremendous amount of stupidity and utter non-sense all around the world (and I come from a country which that can be seen at first hand literally everywhere, regardless of who)
I believe whatever culture one follows, it doesn’t mean anything unless it has rational reasoning to it to a certain extent, and most importantly being decent human beings.

As for the latter, well I’m no biology expert so I don’t know.
