Secrets Revealed!

... Well, if you can call them secrets in the first place!

I have been tagged by Sameera to list down seven of my secrets which I have never told anyone. This is hard coz of many reasons. To list a few -

1. I am a woman and nothing can stay in my system for a long time. I must have revealed these so-called secrets of mine to one person or the other at some point in life.

2. I am suffering from memory loss nowadays. I forget things way too fast. I call it the 'Quarter Life Crisis'. The point being that there's a high chance that I have forgotten some of my very own secrets!

3. If you think I am going to reveal my crush list, love list, relationship list (yes, they are all different types of lists), then please - exit stage left! (or right, whichever suits you ;))

I will jot them down anyway for all of you, provided that you keep them as a secret too! Pakka promise, no? Ok, here goes...

7 Secrets Revealed

1. The second thing I notice in a person is their hair style. The first being? Their personality. If they act like jerks, then automatically the ignore button is pressed and I don't notice anything else -- including their hair style! If you're a friend with great looking hair, rest assured I must have already asked you to reveal your 'hairy' secrets! ;)

2. I am very very tolerant with friends, strangers, acquaintances but I am a terror to my family members. I feel sorry for them sometimes!

3. I am closer to my mom than to my dad. I have told her almost everything - my heart breaks, crushes, insecurities, problems... almost anything and everything! I think I have inherited my sad sense of humour from her too.... ;) But the best trait I have got from her is her positive approach towards life.

4. I have learnt Carnatic Music for 3 years. This might make you go 'wow' and think that I can sing perfectly, but no... Dhanya likes loves to sing off-tune and loud most of the times! She likes the scared look her singing can bring upon listeners.

5. I love being around happy and wacky people who don't take life too seriously. All of my best friends are crazy in some way or the other! ;)

6. I have had many weird nicknames - 'Cricket' being one of them. And no, I do not mean the sport!

7. I don't take compliments too well. I dunno what to do with them! If 'compliments' were things, I would gladly throw the ones I am getting at someone else. I was considered the ugly duckling in my family when I was young, and now when people tell me I look good I just find that very hard to believe! But rest assured, it does feel nice and I do appreciate them eventually. :-)

Ready to reveal your secrets? Tell me something I don't know about you yet!


  1. Cricket! Lol.. :D

    Wen u said u have learnt Carnatic music something came to my mind! I took violin lessons as a kid.. just 2 or 3 classes..then didn't go for a week or two..went back after that break n they told me sir died! so my violin is still gathering dust! :P

  2. Where does this "Cricket" come from?

  3. tats so sweet :)

  6. @ Point 1, hair style??? What will you notice in my bald head then?

    Carnatic music is good. Cricket is LOL.

  8. ah! thats one good read...


    here goes my list -
    1 - I missed on 18th and 19th year of my life, and jumped directly from 17th to 20th - if u know what I mean...he he he
    2 - I am addicted to something that one who knows me well would never be able to associate me with, it might come out as a shock someday
    3 - Due to transferable nature of my fathers job,We shifted cities every 3rd yr and this way... people in one place know me as X type of guy while people on the next place knew me as Y type of guy... I has actually Z, which I never revealed to anyone but to two persons till date
    4 - I once wanted to be a treasure hunter. Shit! I feel so childish saying this and more childish in accepting that A part of me, still wants to be one ...oh no! did I said that,
    5 - I recently stole something(which is equally strange and hmm...controversial) from a genral purpose store, to perform a dare! Thank god, I was not caught...
    6 - I havent shared the seventh with 5 of my best friends and have done that with some not so close friends on net and with strangers of gtalk
    7 - I love her

  22. Cricket learnt violin at home. Too shy to even step out of house then.
    Hence, took up violin instead of singing. Lol, no one should hear her voice. Still regrets that it should have been casio instead of violin. Easy go na...na na...

    Hmmm...yep.. 2 type of pears...70 rs, 90 rs. A mix and match da. Cashiers make mistakes too...

    Cancerians are a lil crazy and lazy too...Balme it on others still...

    Org-anizational cross-hairs are tricky ;)
