Here are my responses to the questions posed by Gunjan:-

1) Why do you like most about blogging?
About Blogging I like that it gives you a platform to share your thoughts in a detailed way, it reaches to the specific audiences i.e. to those who really want to read something interesting. It is different than any other social network as while you blog you can enhance your artistic skills.

2) What do you dislike most about blogging?
Many people start blogging as passion, as their hobby, as they wanted to showcase their skills to others, gradually people make it their profession and only few people can keep Passion alive and they turned to be professionals by flooding their blogs with so many “How to”, “what to” blogs, which many times are repetitive. I dislike this thing that people forget the original motive.

3) How do you get blogging ideas?
There is only mantra behind getting ideas, “Always be alert, keep your eyes, nose and ear open” .
Actually I think that I am a good observer and while observing incidents, people and work around me I get ideas to write.

4) What did you want to be when you were a child?
Hahahahaha, this is a funny question to any adult living in his late twenties now. Each person grown up in 90s wanted to be a superman, yes he personally wanted to become something, then his mother wants something else, and suddenly father came and decide another profession, but after all, destiny takes him to a different stage.
My case is not different actually I wanted to become a Doctor till my class 10th, then an Army Officer, then I decided to become a physics scholar and researcher but then I found that god has written something for me in other profession and Finally I became IT Consultant or Software Engineer.

5) Which is your favorite book and why?
In today’s date my favorite book is “Shrimadbhagwatgeeta” and why, because every time when I read it, I do not get a single thing repeated. Each time I find something new, may be after my each reading the level of my understanding enhanced and I see the same thing in different direction.
 I request to all fellow bloggers to read it at least once, do not think that it is a religious book, it’s a philosophical book.

6) Of all the places you have ever been to, which one is your favorite and why?
Here I assume that the question is asked in terms of my residences in where cities then in that case my favorite place for living is Hyderabad, and why, because this city has it’s own pace of life, a royal pace, a charm of staying forever in the city. Even it is considered as a Metro city, it has its own share of calmness during usual business.
And if the question is about the tourist destinations which I visited and liked the most, then my answer is Gangtok, yes it is my favorite destination where I would like to go again and again or may be in my retirement age I would settle down there. I liked the people there, they are very nice, helping in nature, and you can see the same purity on most of the faces which you see on a new born baby.

7) Your biggest influence or role model is?
I do not have a fixed role model ever, at each stage of life I see role models around me, for example when I was in school then the topper of the class was my role model, I wanted to become like him, at the same time the football captain of school team was also my role model.
When I joined my profession, then I saw several skilled people around me who knew more than me about the skills where I am working so I made them my role model.
But being as a human being I always admire my Father, and wants to become a father, husband, son and human being like him.

8) What's your favorite genre of books?
I like Hindi humor, History, Fiction by Indian writers.

9) What time of the day is the most conducive for you to write?
Whenever an idea flashes in my mind, I put it on a notepad, and then whenever I find a little time during any part of the day, I write.

10) How do you overcome blogger/writer's block?
That I do not know how to answer!!!
