I tagged myself, forcefully, to make a post !!!

What do you know about your blogo-friends ????

Actually nothing, when we start reading their blogs. But slowly, we get a sense of their personality through their words and expressions.  The issues that bother them, the memories close to their heart, the people who trouble them and those who love them dearly.  In effect, we get to know them slowly, with every post they write, which is a honest reflection of that blogger. 

So many of these things make the readers relate to them, with similar personal experiences.

Its been some time, since I am part of this blogoworld and I am so happy to say that I’ve made so many wonderful friends over here, than in real life.

Have all the like-minded ppl come together, here ????

And yday, one of my wonderful friends, Swaram, asked us to answer the following questions in her blog, because she was so bored at work  😉   and she needed some real good entertainment. What better way !!!! 😉

But, Swaru, I just can’t answer them over there – you see, I need fodder for my blog. So, I made a post out of it. Brilliant me !!!! LOL 😆

I was introduced to this wonderful world of blogging through my best friend, Butterfly and I started of with Blogger.  Dear Butterfly, this one is for you.

 So, it’ll be only Butterfly who used to write comments to my posts. Even though we meet everyday, you see we were neighbours too, it was fun discussing our posts !!! 🙂

It was you, Swaram, who came and wrote the first comment – a person  I didn’t know at that time.  And I was so happy to know, that you stayed in the same city with me.  And the first post, which I read of yours was the picture post on squirrels, when you go for your morning walks. I still remember those pics.  I was maha thrilled to receive your comments and would anxiously wait for your visit again.  And slowly and surely, I understood the kind of person you are, through the morals you follow, the code of living you have for yourself and the best of all is the spirit with which you approach life.  🙂

When there is a troll on your blog, when a friend back-stabs at you or when the robbers raped your home, you’ve come out head high, full of positive spirit towards life and that makes you a wonderful person !!!! Hugs to you !!!! 🙂

Yes, I love you, as a blogger, as a friend and as a fellow Hyderabadi !!! 😉

You are one of the finest persons, I’ve met so far and I wish we meet soon !!! Yes, sometimes, I scold myself for not taking a serious initiative to meet you. I should have dropped at your place for a breakfast of aloo parathas !!!! 😉

Now, I’ll answer your questions, OK !!!  

1. Who are you?

I am your blogger friend, waiting to meet you !!!!

2. Are we friends?

Absolutely !!! 🙂

3. Something I have and YOU want?

That smile which takes you through all rough times !!!! 🙂

4. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.

Actually, I like your nickname, Swaram !!! Swarams are the basic notes in music and they are very essential for every raaga, as the swarams define them.  It’s a lovely name, which suits you well than your actual name !!!  Maybe, I can say, that you are the swaram in Su’s life. Wah !! Wah !!!!

5. Describe me in one word.


6. What was your first impression of me?

That you’ve good morals in life – remember the post in which you explained how you tried helping your maid’s children, with their studies ???

7. Do you still think that way about me now?

Yes, indeed.

8. What reminds you of me?

That we should meet soon.

9. If you could give me anything what would it be?

Anything you ask !!!! Maybe that Tupperware something, that I promised you !!!!  And a big bear hug !!! 🙂

10. How well do you know me?

Enough to write a post for you !!! 😉

11. How do you see me in the future?

Spreading the smiles !!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t ??

So far, NO !!!

13. Are you going to post this in your blog and see what I say about you?

Yes, I’ve posted. Now its your turn, dear. 🙂

  2. OMG! U really made a post of it? I can’t believe someone so sweet can exist Ums!
    Now, you see for yourself – I am there, na !!!! 😉 Now, after your comment, all the ants are attacking me !!!! LOL 😆


    1. Know what? this ws such a sweet gesture that I actually hv no words Ums. Might sound filmy, but its true. If I hv come out positively out of trying times, its bcoz u ppl r with me. Seriously!
      I am so glad I visited u from Butterfly and left that comment 🙂
      Yes, I am glad too !!! Becos, I’ve made many a frnds thru your blog !!! Its a wonderful journey for me, too !!! 🙂

      I am so so sorry we were not able to meet up when u were here. U did try ur best even when u were packing and moving. Remember how u surprised me with that phone call to wish me on the wedding day? That ws such a sweet thing to do. I so wish u cud be here and the 3 of us cud meet often.
      Not to worry. We’ll meet when we are destined to. Till then, this blogo-friendship will continue. 🙂
      But then, life is unpredictable and Wth, this does give me a chance to enjoy the beach n other things in Umas Chennai no 🙂 Loads of hugs to u and God bless u 🙂
      See, now you find other reasons to come to Chennai !!! 🙂 Actually, we can attack Vimmuuu, together – that will be fun. LOL 🙂

      Butterfly, where have you flown away ???? Towards flowery fields ???? 🙂 Come soon, dear.


      1. Wow! Wil def. take it from u when am in Chennai and hope that happens soon 🙂
        Wonder what Vimmuuu wil say to this 😛
        He better be prepared. He has nothing much to say !!! LOL 🙂 🙂 🙂


    1. Masood, Swaram has asked everyone to answer to this questions in her blog – did u answer there ????

      I’ve answered here, in my blog. Thats the diff. No precendence. 🙂


  3. Oh such a loving post! Gives hope for those afraid of making new friends with unknown people…so true friendship still exists in so many lovely forms! Kudos! :)))


    1. Thanks Indy !!!! So far, the friendships I’ve made with my virtual friends have proved good and honest and warm. If my intuition says yes to a person, I think I go for that friendship.


  4. Very sweet post! I loved it, the poem, the words and your answers!! Delight to read. More so b’cos I could relate to what you wrote about Swaram – Though she wasn’t the first to comment on my blog, she was the first virtual friend I made. And then, so many other like-minded people through her vast network.

    Its a nice pretty world out here :-)Wish U a happy weekend.


    1. Thank u, LW !!! Am so happy to know how Swaram has helped build this blog network, for many of us like you and me. Its nice to know that she was ur first virtual friend. 🙂


  5. woah, never thought swaram would have a fan !!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
    Why ???? Whats wrong ?????
    well, anything for a post huh ums ? 😀 😀 😀 😀
    Wellll, not anything. But tags I love always have a big attraction to me. 😉

    But I have seen such online or offline bondings only between girls. I have not come across any guy doing a similar gesture for another guy unless if he is you know-you know 😉
    You are a nut !!! Girls bond well with just simple gestures and good listening and talking. I guess, guys are different – you shld tell me.

    and yes, swaram is indeed a very good human being ! I second you on that ! 🙂
    Finally, some admission of truth. Why, you want her to make aloo parathas when u visit Hyd, next time, eh ???


  6. Awww… what a sweet sweet post! 😀
    I am so glad that you have found a friend like Swaru Ums.. 🙂
    She does spread smiles around!
    And the cartoons are lovely!
    Espcially the “I love my computer; my friends live in it” one!!! 😀

    Hugs to you both and touchwood for such lovely friends!
    God Bless you both!


    1. Thanks Pix. 🙂

      Yes, its wonderful to know the virtual friends, in reality too !!! 🙂 And thank you again, for touchwood, hugs and blessings from God. 🙂

      Hugs to you !!! 🙂


  7. Umi!!!! Thanks for those wonderful words!!! You are the best and I so miss you. Life was a lot easier when u were around! Damn, You had to go away!!!

    Swaram: I am away in Vizag. These days when I am upset, I’d rather not blog than write a crappy, angry blog!


    1. Its weird to address you as Butterfly, do you know that ???? 🙄

      But, when we stayed as neighbours, life was better and happier, with someone like you to share it with – like the little tidbits of things which happen around me !!!

      But, still, I’ve not found anyone like you, you are the best friend for me !!! And you’ll be !!! 🙂


  8. Awww…cute. Love all those colorful quotes. Touchwood to yours and Bins’ friendship. Psst..can you tell Bins to move to WP? She is the only one still loyal to Blogger (Smita too grrr…) 😡


    1. Thank u, Sols. I am just going to get her password and do the shifting myself, then she can change to a new password – I think thats the easy way !!!! 😉

      Let me talk to her abt it. 🙂
