8 Random Facts About Me

Ruhi tagged me to write 8 random facts about me:

1. I am a wannabe movie director. Secretly, I desire to make it big there. πŸ™‚ My kind of movies are Kabul Express, Bheja Fry, Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, Forrest Gump. (Feel free to criticize them) πŸ˜›

I also have a post graduate degree in mass communication and journalism. I gave up an offer of working in a leading Indian TV channel due to nightly work hours. I try to feed journalist in me by writing about issues I would have as a journalist. I love my work as an Instruction Designer. I bet most Indians do not know what it is. We primarily work for clients abroad. Google the term or write a comment, me gonna help you understand. πŸ™‚

2. I realized, recently, that I can be very rude when it comes to it. My Dad and one of my friends are two people capable of bringing out the worst in me. 😦 One person I feel instantly guilty after being angry with is my sister. She is so lovable.

3. I love my company, I like being alone. Yet I cannot shop alone. I need someone with me to guide me through: to tell me how a dress looks or to give me more shopping ideas that I can use.

4. I am a coward on inside. I discovered this, years ago, while playing a computer game. In the game, you have to break the walls, using bombs, to navigate . At each level, there are worms you have to combat. I would always take “flight” approach instead of “fight.” Once I realized this inwardly, I went on to bomb all the worms and cleared all the levels with top scores.

Trekking In real life, I consciously push myself to do all difficult things that excite me. I jumped from a high cliff into deep Ganges, climbed rocks (rappling) and rafted across Ganges. You would say, no big deal. But it was a big deal, if you looked at my group of friends who spent at least 15 minutes on cliff top to decide if they should jump. I was scared too, but did not brood much. To the surprise of my friends, I went up and asked them to make space for me to jump. My friend looked up in surprised and asked, “you sure?” In his words, before he could turn back and see, I had jumped! πŸ™‚ That was how cliff-jumping kick-started for others. Though one of the friends hurt herself (not very seriously) as she landed improperly in the water.

But I am still scared of childbirths, stitches, fractures, and surgeries. I have Angst-o-phobia.

5. I have never cooked before in my life-except some occasional rice or chapatis. These days, because my grandparents are away, I am staying alone. I have cooked several Indian dishes like paneer, rajma, chane. Sometimes they taste real good, and sometimes there is some mistake. Like too much oil in paneer, one time forgot that chana was still boiling. They burnt at the bottom. 😦

I am throughly enjoying my cooking experience. There is creativity involved in cooking as well. Yet I think, when I start my family, and if I cook everyday for my whole brood after work, I may have to sacrifice my other interests as reading, writing, movies. Uh, I don’t want to sacrifice these, I need to find a balance later when it comes to it.

6. I used to have photographic memory at school. I just had to see something once, I would remember it forever. Perhaps that is why I academically excelled all through school without slogging a bit. But now I have poorest working memory. I hardly remember anything. Several ideas that I think I can blog or write about get lost everyday due to my forgetfulness. I can never state my daily diary. Yet I remember some things that happened long back. I am yet to figure out for myself how my memory works currently. Sometimes, extent of my forgetfulness scares me. Could it be more?

7. I am perhaps the most choosy in the world when it comes to food. The list of what I do not eat is too long. I am a vegetarian, I do not even eat onion and garlic. That rules out any Chinese, Thai or Japanese cuisine I may want to eat.

I am not even Coke or Pepsi fan. I drink them very rarely. There are very few sweets I eat. But I love spicy junk food like Tikki, alloo chat, alloo kabli (a dish with spiced up boiled potatoes found in Bengal) or bhelpuri.

8. I feel I am the most misunderstood person on this earth. 90% of the people in my life may not have the accurate perception of me. I do not blame them. I react and deal with different people differently. For one I am very introvert, for other I am like granny, I am very bossy for other, I am quarrelsome, I am softie. I think I don’t know myself. I just react by the instinct. Some believe I am very wise, some think I am lethargic (and they are right πŸ™‚ ).

I have to figure out for myself, which of them is essentially me.

I tag Dinsan, ManofRoma, Amit, Pradeep and Melani for this meme in case they want to. πŸ™‚ Anyone else who wants to do this meme is welcome.

    Heyyyyyyy, these random facts were really interesting mam!!!! Got to know lot of cool things about you. So you jumped from a high cliff into ganges..wow!! That’s really awesome..I cannot do stuff like that in my seven lives..I cant even sit in Joy Rides…
    Yes, you can be rude..:p
    And ya, good luck with your movie making dreams..Iam sure you will make it big there..but not as big as me..:)

  3. 3 ruhi December 3, 2007 at 7:45 pm

    Forrest Gump is one of my favorite movies too πŸ™‚

    You are so adventurous! I admire you…I would have died on the spot on that cliff…LOL.

    About the cooking, you remind me of myself. I couldn’t even cut an onion when I was in India. Haha..and now I can make anything on Earth! πŸ™‚ When you really have to cook, then you’ll learn. So don’t worry about it.

    Thanks for doing the tag Poonam!

  4. 4 Poonam Sharma December 4, 2007 at 4:55 am

    @Dinsan: Will wait to read your post. πŸ™‚

    @lallopallo: “I cannot do stuff like that in my seven lives.”

    Aw, come on! Jumping was not a bit difficult, frankly. All you have to do is not to look at height and jump as far as you can. It was pretty easy in hindsight.

    ahah, you think I am rude πŸ™‚

    Movie director? It is still a longtime, I havent taken a single step in the direction.

    @ruhi: Thank you for the tag, I enjoyed this tag. Gives me opportunity to introspect. I am thinking of doing another one. πŸ™‚

    Yes, I am learning cooking. Now I do get some dishes right and good. But I am sure I o not want to do it daily after work to make my life monotonous. What do you think?

  5. 5 Crimson Feet December 4, 2007 at 7:25 am

    pretty interesting you are!

    those are grt movies and not many would criticize them unless they do it for a living… (kabul express possibly gets a little more credit than it deserves, by being put next to those other 4)

    i like the pun of “you not having taken any step in that ‘direction’…” (of becoming a movie director… lol)

  6. 6 Ashish December 4, 2007 at 7:27 am

    Alright, thats you [along with Ruhi] ticked off of my “go to dinner” list. I’m a 100% pure non-vegetarian. πŸ˜›

  7. 7 ruhi December 4, 2007 at 8:18 am

    @Poonam, You definitely don’t want to cook daily 😦 Ask me! I get so effin’ bored cooking daily…that’s because I have no option. Outside, almost everything is non-veg. 😦 So I have very limited choice. Plus, American fast food is extremely fatty. I’ve put on some weight too. As long as you’re in India, you shouldn’t even think about cooking.

    @Ashish, 100% non-veg? What do you eat for bfast? Chicken?

  8. 8 Ashish December 4, 2007 at 8:27 am

    No breakfast! πŸ˜›

  9. 9 Nishu December 4, 2007 at 8:30 am

    ok ! i was not tagged

  10. 10 Poonam Sharma December 4, 2007 at 8:50 am

    @Crimson Feet: Hey welcome! Glad you found facts interesting. I could have written few more, I think. It got me thinking about me.

    And yes, Kabul Express is v criticised movie, yet I liked it. Perhaps you are right, it underscores when compared with likes of Forrest Gump. “Stupid is as stupid does!” πŸ™‚

    @Ruhi: I mean I will not cook daily till I am single. What if I am married? I need a sensitive guy and a good cook.

    @Ashish: Why scrambled eggs and bacon could be had for breakfast? Very English, you see. πŸ™‚

    @Nishu: I actually thought of tagging you and deleted. Why don’t you go ahead and do it? I would like to read what you write. πŸ™‚

  11. 11 Ashish December 4, 2007 at 9:59 am

    Last time I knew Bacon = pork. Or did I hear wrong? πŸ˜›

    I don’t have Breakfast anyway. πŸ˜›

  12. 12 Poonam Sharma December 4, 2007 at 10:02 am

    @Ashish: Bacon is sliced and fried hog meat. It is almost same as pig. But English love it, it is their favorite breakfast. πŸ™‚

  13. 13 puresunshine December 4, 2007 at 1:27 pm

    loved the story about playing the game to realise the coward in u, and then looking inwards and top scoring. that is what we all should do in real life. beautiful story. thanks for droppin by. πŸ™‚

  14. 14 ManofRoma December 4, 2007 at 5:02 pm

    I cannot meme you. Lack of time (and knowledge)… 😦

  15. 15 ruhi December 4, 2007 at 6:27 pm

    @Poonam, What if you’re married? Husband will cook? simple! I always wanted a guy who can cook for me and my bf does πŸ˜‰ Sometimes you do get what you want. πŸ˜›

  16. 16 ruhi December 4, 2007 at 6:56 pm

    Hey Poonam, how do you know about Aloo kabli? Are you from Calcutta?

  17. 17 Poonam Sharma December 5, 2007 at 4:02 am

    @puresunshine: Yes, the game did make me realize. To be honest, I am still scared on inside, 😦 but I try to push myself. I put a courageous front. And, Welcome to Visceral Observations! πŸ™‚

    @manofroma: Take your time and you need no knowledge to do this meme. As I wrote in your blog, all you have to do is write 8 random facts about you.Its only about you.

    @ruhi: he he, you are lucky! I doubt it is easy for me to find a guy who cooks well. I would rather ask for an understanding guy, also one who can hire a good cook. πŸ™‚

    Alloo kabli, yes, I have been in Calcutta. Actually Haldia, I did my schooling there. πŸ™‚ I used to love spicy alloo kabli. I miss it in Delhi. 😦

  18. 18 kpowerinfinity December 5, 2007 at 4:27 am

    Everybody things they are the most misunderstood on Earth πŸ™‚

    And good luck with your cooking experiences, it is waaay overrated πŸ˜› (had written about my own experiences here.

    And am going to Google for Instructional Designer and then come back to you!

  19. 19 Poonam Sharma December 5, 2007 at 8:00 am

    @kpowerinfinity: Nah, I am misunderstood as I have a very assertive way of speaking my mind. It is often misunderstood as aggression. 😦 Or my mildness is taken as weakness and so on.

    You mean culinary skills are overrated! πŸ™‚

    I read your post, so you aspired to be Kitchen Idol of all things? ha ha

    Yup, will be more than happy to enlighten you in instruction design stuff. πŸ™‚

  20. 20 Amyth December 5, 2007 at 8:45 am

    Aloo Kabli!!…. Haldia-Ma’m! :mrgreen: … Pardon my blabbering madame..

    By the way, I have followed your tag.. 8 random facts about me too… NOW on air! πŸ˜‰

    U must be thinking, I’ve lost it!

  21. 21 dinsan December 5, 2007 at 11:44 am

    I edited my post πŸ˜‰

  22. 22 Poonam Sharma December 6, 2007 at 5:46 am

    @Amyth: Nah, it happens when people are not well. πŸ˜› Read your tag and also comments. πŸ™‚

    @Dinsan: Well, it looks better now. Glad you paid heed to feedback. πŸ˜€

  23. 23 ish December 6, 2007 at 1:25 pm

    I wasn’t here for something like 3 days right? And things really fire up when I’m not there. I logged into Google Reader today and there were like 59 unread items. You people do write a lot when I’m away πŸ˜›

    OK, I think you should have done that TV job..then I would have gone around saying my love guru is the hot chick who comes on that and that TV channel..would have been so darned cool!

    And who told you you could be the choosiest when it comes to food? That title is officially mine and if you don’t believe me, ask my mum. The toughest thing in her life according to her is thinking what I’ll eat throughout the week. And all that when I’m not even a vegetarian.

    And I’m coming over the next time you make rajma or chane, those are two things I lurve to eat!

  24. 24 arvind December 6, 2007 at 2:59 pm

    Ah that was a good description about urself..
    WAs that games WORMS fort…
    πŸ˜› …i love that game..

  25. 25 Poonam Sharma December 6, 2007 at 3:14 pm

    @Ish: I read at least 59 blog posts everyday. Somedays quite more than this.

    Nah, TV job may have made me frustrated devoid of my personal life. At least now I get to pursue my interests. I am glad I do not fit your definition of hot chick. Let me be your “respected” love guru πŸ˜› he he

    Welcome to finicky foodies club! Sure you are welcome to my meals, but I am new so could be inconsistent. Kabhi achcha to phir kabhi bura.

    And I too lurve rajama and chana (I think I was a horse in my last incarnation. πŸ˜› )

    @Arvind: The version I played was called Nitro. But it comes in different brands with different games. It could easily be worm’s fort.

  26. 26 ish December 6, 2007 at 4:36 pm

    Ah, I can’t read that many posts everyday because of the time factor. Usually I have around 18 posts to read in a day at an average and that’s easy. I still have 10 more to read actually.

    Who says you don’t fit my definition of a hot chick? And it’s not only looks that makes you a hot chick, it’s the attitude and various other things, y’know.

    Haha, you know what my parents call me? They call me a gora Madrasi because I lurve rice. I can eat rice with anything..be it rajma, chana, dal and many other things.

  27. 27 ruhi December 6, 2007 at 6:09 pm

    @poonam, yes, 59 blog posts at least?? wow girl..that’s a lot. you shoudl become a full time blogger, seriously. there are lots of group blogs that “hire” writers and pay them lots of money for writing each post.

    Hey my favorite dishes are all south indian πŸ˜› except for chola batura. heh!!

    ish, i’ll call you gora madrasi too now πŸ˜‰

  28. 28 Poonam Sharma December 7, 2007 at 4:30 am

    @Ish: “nd it’s not only looks that makes you a hot chick, it’s the attitude and various other things, y’know.” Cool! I take it you think I have the right attitude. πŸ™‚

    @Ruhi: I have read 150 blog posts in a day and 59 is pretty much average. I am a voracious reader, so I read them. That is why I keep finding new blogger (it helps when I want to interview them) πŸ™‚ but I never comment. I am too lethargic. If I comment in blogs other than my friends, it must have been really really good.

    @ish and ruhi: I like south indian too. These days, with my grandma away, I have been eating south india way too much (for breakfast and lunch) that I look forward to north indian food i will prepare when i go home. πŸ™‚

    I dont mind calling Ish gora madrasi too πŸ™‚

  29. 29 ish December 7, 2007 at 12:58 pm

    And now I’m thinking, did I make a mistake when I told you guys about the gora madrasi thing? πŸ˜›

  30. 30 raajyadav December 9, 2007 at 1:29 pm

    Random facts about you made an intresting reading. I could associate myself with fact No 6 about ur memory. I too had this gift of pictographic memory till abt 7-8 years ago but i think the life takes its toll. Now I hardly remember what my wife tells me the list of things to do in the morning but still have a pictographic memory of my office jobs. Strange but true. I too am trying to figure out why this happens.

  31. 31 vaishno December 9, 2007 at 2:49 pm

    so much of wat u wrote is like me! was feeling as if i it was my article!

  32. 32 Poonam Sharma December 10, 2007 at 4:53 am

    @Gora Madrasi: How was your exam? πŸ˜›

    @Raj Yadav: Hey, Rajesh Welcome back!

    You are right somehow my forgetfulness has never interfered with my job. But it certainly is evident in my personal life? Why would that happen?

    @Vaishno: πŸ™‚

    Hota hai, chote chote shaharon mein aisi badi badi baatein hoti rehti hain. Which ones did you identify with most?

    Sorry poonam couldn’t reply you and I haven’t even updated my blog for I donno how long,Very busy these days,
    whats truemor? checkout http://www.truemor.com
    yes if you take a backup on wordpress it’s another blog

  34. 34 Poonam Sharma December 14, 2007 at 5:48 am

    @Pradeep: It’s all right. I understand. I have been busy too, so I have not posted anything since 7th.

    Thanks for the truemor link. πŸ™‚

  35. 35 Elito January 18, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    I could relate to a lot of your about me. In effect by writing it down, you are also trying to find a logic/explanation for them.

    Somethings i could relate to:

    – I gave up an offer of working in a leading Indian TV channel due to nightly work hours. – i understand that

    My Dad and one of my friends are two people capable of bringing out the worst in me – For me its JUST my dad

    In real life, I consciously push myself to do all difficult things that excite me. I jumped from a high cliff into deep Ganges, climbed rocks (rappling) and rafted across Ganges. You would say, no big deal. But it was a big deal, if you looked at my group of friends who spent at least 15 minutes on cliff top to decide if they should jump. I was scared too, but did not brood much. To the surprise of my friends, I went up and asked them to make space for me to jump. My friend looked up in surprised and asked, β€œyou sure?” In his words, before he could turn back and see, I had jumped – Would you belive if i said i did something EXACTLY similiar

    But I am still scared of childbirths, stitches, fractures, and surgeries – me too..except the childbirth

    to coward add thrill seeker and competitive.

    Enzoi!

  36. 36 Poonam Sharma January 21, 2008 at 4:22 am

    @Elito: This question could be personal. So, it is your choice to answer or not. Either way, I respect it. Why does your DAD bring our worst in you? Two very stubborn personalities?

    Are you a aquarian?

  37. 37 vivek March 31, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    Hey Poonam..

    Good one!
    I liked the term ‘Random Facts’.

    Poonam, if u liked Forrest Gump, i guess, u would also like ‘The Terminal’.

    I noticed in ur response to Elito that u’ve mentioned Aquarians to be very stubborn personalities. My understanding is that Taureans are more stubborn than Aquarians (Linda Goodman, author of ‘Sun Signs’ agrees with me! πŸ™‚ )
    What’s ur take on this?

    Happy blogging! πŸ™‚

    Don’t waste a minute not being happy.. If one window closes, run to the next window… or break down a door.. πŸ™‚

  38. 38 vivek March 31, 2008 at 2:04 pm

    Hey Poonam..

    I went googling for ‘Instruction Designer’… and guess what?… I found this… https://alchemistpoonam.wordpress.com/2007/09/21/republising-my-first-post/

    I find your work very interesting… I give a lot of importance to presenting information.. I keep reminding my friends to follow KISS (Keep It Short and Simple) methodology when they are explaining new concepts πŸ™‚ Is there an ‘Instruction Designer’ in me? πŸ˜‰ Nice to know that such a profession exists..

  39. 39 Poonam Sharma April 1, 2008 at 6:49 am

    @Vivek: I did like Terminal. Though the story had more potential, the movie had lacklustre ending for me.

    True, Taureans are as stubborn. Are you by any chance a Taurean? I like what you said, not to spend a minute unhappy, but sometimes it is hard to do so.

    Yes, KISS principle is inherent to instruction design. You could have a instructional designer in you. πŸ™‚

  40. 40 vivek April 7, 2008 at 1:57 pm

    Poonam,
    Yaaa! I’m a Taurean. Are u an Aquarian?
    Nice to know that I could have an instructional designer in me.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Poonam: Yup, I am an aquarian. And I have a very good friend as taurean. πŸ™‚ I am always on lookout if it is possible for a aquarian and taurean to have nice compatibility.

  41. 41 Reema May 25, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    So do u eat aaloo chat and bhelpuri without onions? Dont worry u will get the hang of cooking and will be faster in it soon.

    Poonam: Yes, I eat both without onions. I have a strange problem with cooking. When I ask and cook, it is fine. After a break, when I cook, I forget howto. I ask again. Am I normal?

  42. 42 Reema May 26, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    U r normal!! Why dont u just make a recipe diary? The day u cook something write it down when u r free after lunch or dinner. I too have a recipe diary.

    Poonam: Recipe book! Well, its a good idea but it sounds too much work to this lazy bones. I will give it a try though. πŸ™‚

  43. 43 Sandeep R June 3, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    Hey Poonam!
    Nice to come across your blog πŸ™‚

    Your kinda movie, Bheja Fry, is lifted from a french movie ‘le diner de cons’
    I happen to watch that on Sunday, hadn’t watched Bejha fry earlier πŸ™‚

    Poonam: Yeah, recently I found out that it is a copy of French movie. It was fun, though. Thanks for stopping by! See you around! πŸ™‚

  44. 44 Sakhi July 1, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    Hey, rafting and cliff jumping? that’s great! πŸ™‚

    As i said in my post, i am scared but want to overcome it too! but working hours dont permit me. But will definately try!

    And what is “instruction designer?” do i sound dumb? πŸ™‚

    and you have degrees in mass communications, thats cool! πŸ™‚

    Poonam: Lets say Sakhi that your organisation has introduced a new software that you need to use for work. So you need a training. And the training better be on computer that gives you hands-on training and also assesses you to certify that you have learnt it so that you can use it real-time. May be no instructors, only through e-learning. This is where an instruction designer (ID)comes in. He/she will sit with expert/dveloper of software and design an engaging training program that teaches you. ID designs the concept, there is a team of graphic designers, multimedia team, editors who execute ID’s design. I hope I didn’t bore you with the explanation.

    Currently, as India is not ready for e-learning, we design programs for corporates and universities abroad.

  45. 45 Vivek July 28, 2008 at 3:05 pm

    Hey Poonam,

    Nice to know that u r always on the lookout for the possibility of nice compatibility between an Aquarian and a Taurean! It would be nice for an Aquarian and a Taurean to debate on a topic where they have different points of view…. πŸ™‚ We could bring-in a Libra to summarize the debate…. πŸ™‚ wat say?

    Poonam: Yes, I am sure you will have to bring a third party to resolve their debate. On their own, they can never bring their debate to satisfied conclusion. Taureans don’t accept disagreements easily. 😦

  46. 46 Vivek August 13, 2008 at 6:49 pm

    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Taureans are stubborn… πŸ™‚ The good characteristics of Aquarians are that they are dependable, impartial, generous, selfless, independent, strong-willed, observant, inventive, open-minded, candid, communicative, loyal-friend, idealistic, individualistic, fair and thoughtful… πŸ™‚

    Poonam: I love it when someone praises Aquarians. πŸ™‚

  47. 47 Den Relojo September 3, 2008 at 12:14 am

    I don’t know how to cook either! LOL

    Poonam: And I am trying to learn in little opportunity life presents me to cook. πŸ™‚

  48. 48 Atir Javed September 17, 2008 at 11:48 am

    hi
    I was searching google images for rappling and this picture of people jumpiing off the cliff turned up on the main page . It reminded me of my school days when we used to run & dive in the pool from the highest board.
    And then i read the whole of the page , ” 8 random facts about me”. must admit it was pretty interesting …. Forrest Gump is one movie i love. And the last random fact about not being understood or seen in different lights by different poeple is very reminiscent to me…

    all the best

    Poonam: Thanks Atir for writing your appreciation here. πŸ™‚

    Yes, cliff jumping is among my fond memories too. πŸ™‚ IF you like this blog, keep visiting!

    Do you ahev a blog?

  49. 49 Atir September 27, 2008 at 4:41 pm

    hello

    nahi , mera koi blog filhaal nahi hai … aagey zaroor hoga.

    i read your views on “Dealing with insincere friends ” , made for an intersting read. It reminded me of some folks i know.

    and u dont need to thank for appreciaton…. i feel its always good to commend people .

    have a great weekend.

  50. 50 vivek October 17, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Hey Poonam,

    The banner at the top (fountain-pen with a tinge or orange color) is very catchy!
    Where’s ur write-up on “Dealing with insincere friends”? Pls post the link..
    BTW, Do u wanna know the not-so-good characteristics of Aquarians? πŸ™‚

  51. 51 prem November 20, 2008 at 10:49 pm

    My God… I’m so surpised. I see so much of me in you. right from moives,fight,sister,cowardice,adrenalin,coke,aloneness and being introvert.

    wow, how can someone have so much of a similarity. I’m astonished. I haven’t read any of your write ups yet. just happened to pass by. but the way you’ve expressed yourself is really nice…honest, deep…innocent

    good luck.

  52. 52 Poonam Sharma November 25, 2008 at 5:15 pm

    @Atir: Dealing with insincere people is one of few personal posts I have on my blog. I am glad you could relate to it. πŸ™‚

    Hi,

    This almost felt like my autobiography πŸ™‚ So many similarities there! I am a peace-loving person myself but would not think twice before trying something adventurous.
    About cooking hehe you will feel as if you are the best chef in the world once you see and taste my cooking lol

    Really? I am always pleasantly surprised to find kindred souls on Web. πŸ™‚ And you just made me feel better about my cooking or rather lack of it πŸ˜‰
