Returning with a Tag

Its been a long while since I blogged, in fact a long while since I caught up on a lot of blogs.

When I did so today, the first thing I saw was Astha's tag, and then Gautam's muse on my infrequent postings.

So this post is my response to both....the five things about me you wouldnt know otherwise:

I would have been a journalist...then I assumed I could always continue writing no matter what profession I am in - so I chose HR instead. How wrong I was!

I am a complete dinosaur when it comes to technology - and thats a very dangerous admission for a blogger to make! I believe a cell phone is for communicating with people, a camera clicks pictures, a DVD player is for watching movies, Outlook is for email, and a blog is for writing. You combine all these features into one gadget and give me - I'll quit life!

I hate slotting, branding, sterotyping of any kind. Are you an extrovert or an introvert - is one question i always have trouble answering.

My name, like most others, has a story behind it. My father wanted to name me Radha in memory of a dear niece he had lost to chicken pox. My mother decided to prefix it with Anu since she wanted her daughter’s name to start with A – her way of letting the world know that she wanted her daughter to be in the forefront in whatever she undertook. Also her way of making up for her own name beginning with an R – a letter that always appeared at the fag end, after 17 of its counterparts had come and gone…… after attention spans were long over. A phenomenon Freud would have called sublimation. So there they came up with Anuradha. My name. Their message for me - Stay ahead.

I hate coffee and anything that exudes its flavour. And coming from a South Indian home which wakes up to the smell of brewing filter coffee, thats like saying an Eskimo cant stand ice. Its probably for people like me that the Baristas and Cafe Coffee Days have "tea" & "hot choclate" on their menu. And thank God for that!

Wishing you all a great 2007! See you in the New Year!
