Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their Art? To spend money on it?
If I appreciated an artist’s work based on his/her lifestyle or politics it will not say much about my appreciation. If we did that with anyone,the world would be a very difficult place to live in.
Art appreciation should be based on the talent or the gift of the artist,it should have nothing to with his political affiliation, think about all the well-known artist,do we say oh let’s find out what kind of a lifestyle he had then we’ll decide whether his work is worthy to be bought.
I will spend money on an art work I like, the life style or politics will make no difference.
Hey I made it Z for Zebra
Isn’t it awesome
It feels as if I have
Reached the Zenith!
This feat may make me zany
Do you think I was too zealous
And was zero cautious when
I zipped through the letters A to Z?
Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?
If I’m ever given a choice between spicy or bland food,my choice would be spicy, there is no doubt about it. I grew up in a family where any kind of meat,fish , or chicken was cooked with a lot of spices. I also ate green hot chillies with my food. The chillies did not agree with my stomach but I did not stop eating them until I got sick. Every time I was sick I promised not to eat those green chillies, it was an addiction I could not give up completely.
When I moved to Gander with my husband,there was no such thing as green chillies, the locals did not know them and it was not available. So my obsession with chillies came to a screeching halt. What was available in the store was black pepper and salt. I couldn’t imagine cooking with salt and pepper only, so we asked our friends in Montreal to send us some of the spices we use in our cooking.
This is how things worked out for us as far as cooking goes,there was no other issue, we took trips to the mainland each year and bought our supplies and clothing.
We moved to the capital within a few years,here we can buy anything we need,all kinds of fruits and vegetables and spices too.
The only food I eat without any spices is steak,to me it ruins the taste completely.

What’s your most prized possession? Go!
I think my laptop computer is the best source of my enjoyment, to me it’s my most prized possession.
Since I got my computer I have accomplished a lot,I have done several online courses which I’ve enjoyed immensely. I have learned about my favorite poet and philosopher Iqbal.
I have translated Tagore’s poems and song lyrics. I joined blogging which enabled me to come into contact with some very talented and lovely people. Some of them have become my good friends.
I have participated in interesting writing competition, I have been able to interact with a large number of people.
I consider this a prized possession because nothing else can give me as much pleasure as my computer!
Young two month old kitten
Refuses to let me do my work
Yes it is little but does not yield
I’d have to give him some yummy food!

Do you feel uncomfortable when you see someone else being embarrassed? What’s most likely to make you squirm?
My second year of teaching was absolutely horrible. The first day was enough to make me give up the wretched job immediately.
I remember we had assembled outdoors for some sort of activity, the Principal showed up and started being nasty to one of the teachers in the presence of the little kids. I was horrified, I watched the kids laughing. I made up my mind to quit right then and there. I thought if this guy is embarrassing this innocent teacher without thinking where he was, I’d be the last one to put up with this kind of behavior.
This attitude of the head of a school was enough to make me squirm.
Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget?
Unfortunately I have trouble saying,” I can’t stay mad at you, let’s forgive and forget.” There are many incidences in my life where the people who hurt me, deliberately did it because they were jealous of me . I don’t know why they have that feeling, I certainly did not deserve it.
Some of my family members enjoy hurting me, they do not hesitate to tell lies if it suits their purpose. I have tried many times to forgive and forget but they cannot stop talking against me. I am simply tired of this ‘Forgive and forget’, thing.
I have stopped having anything to do with them. I follow the saying( na rahe bans toh na baje bansari) it means without a flute you cannot play a tune. I am not sure if it will make sense to my readers or why hold on to something that cannot be fixed.
Early Bird, or Night Owl
I am an early bird, I love my night’s sleep too much to stay awake all night. I’m unable to do any kind of work at night, I can’t even watch movies.
Waking up early in the morning is wonderful for me. I get my work done,like cooking,cleaning,writing my posts and occasionally I go shopping for food and other things I need.
During the day I visit my neighbors, wait for mail these are some of the things I won’t be able to do if I slept all day.
I welcome the Xerox machine
It helps me make many copies
X-rays I do not like ’cause I’m not keen
To know what they find is wrong with me!
Xmas comes once a year
It’s a happy time for young and old
I wish I could play the Xylophone
To welcome Xmas every year!
