An inquisitive mind is often the victim of punishment.I knew teachers believed,and executed, this adage,but here the tables were turned,and was punished when I questioned a blogger,about the what and how of TAG......AND GOT TAGGED IN RETURN.

Frankly ,would have never responded to the tag.However, it's true that the question,
what are the 5 random things that people don't know about me...quizzed and hounded me for days.....is it that i am so transparent,that there's nothing which people don't know about me???OR is it that i would have to dig out my secrets and desires and fears and put it up!!!!!!
Found them five points to ponder!!!!!

1. Have a miraculous ability to oscillate between being an introvert and an extrovert.....how and why it happens i don't really know......love being with people,never really care about saying things which are politically correct,but somehow, intensely worry myself silly about why I said it and whom I said it to,????maybe I'm an ambivert or just plain old indecisive!!!!!

2. intensely hate plastic bags......they have a rare chemical ability to raise my BP to abnormal limits.It does embarrass family and friends,when i carry my own bag everywhere,and don't leave any opportunity to lecture people on shunning plastics.....shopkeepers,shoppers caught unawares,school kids...i drive my Eco lessons anywhere and everywhere....It amazes and irritates me,when i see people ask for a huge 5 kg plastic bag,to carry home 1 solitary nimbu !!!!!
"polythene dena bhaiya is every Indian shoppers' fav line."

3. am hopelessly patriotic.....romance,lovers dying to meet in heaven,motherly love...nope....nothing gets the senti out of me as much as a dose of desh bakhti.Strangely,can never sing the national anthem,without feeling tears well up in my eyes.India's struggle for freedom remains my fav.lesson,and often get emotional teaching it.

4. Don't want to sound psychic,but have a rare ,and sometimes irritating ability of receiving vibes from people.....good or bad.....which warns me or pulls me towards them......99% of the time....... I'm correct.Also have an insanely high level of expectation from the people whom I call F.R.I.E.N.D.S.....lethally high.....(don't know how the two things are connected....but am getting a vibe that they are)

5. Cannot do without my daily dose of exercise......whether that daily dose of exercise leads to any calorie depletion(and mostly it does not)...is a fact ,i don't bother...but the satisfaction and exhilaration,whether in a park or the gym ....is a mood elevator for me..... working up a sweat is worth ,every trickle of sweat.

Yey! I am the first one to comment!

First one is little confusing. Others fit in nicely into the image of an ideal teacher.

just one thot crossed my mind though. do introverts tend more to be politically correct?? if i was in your classroom i am sure you wud have said 'gud question'.

and the other rule of this ball game is that u tag others to do the tag.

Hehe.... so now i know what to do when i come for lunch , whenever that is

1. If you are on the introvert extreme, not to bug u to buy an XBOX. If you are on the extrovert extreme, not to bug u to buy a playstation.

2. To not get any gifts or candies or icecream (hehehe) because i tend to get them in plastic bags :p

3. NOT to talk about india's latest cricket loss

4. Cover my head in aluminium foil, folded and terminating in a point - so that all my thoughts radiate upwards and go to the moon...

5. To get some strong rope to tie myself to the strongest piece of furniture around, in case u decide to drag me for excercise (and im sure one look at me - thats the first thing u'll think of )..

gifting candies without plastics are welcome.
don't tell me you prefer being tied to furniture,rather than a walk...will make you change your mind.
