It’s Love, Actually…

After a long, long time, a tag has come my way. Kris Bass, my queerest friend, has tagged me in this very interesting Q&A tag about love, and I will try to answer them here and pass on the tag. Two rules, though:

  • RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

  • RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by continue this game by sending it to other people.
  1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
    If I can call someone my ‘lover’, then there has to be enough trust between us to know that we can never betray each other. Else, she’d be just a very close friend. So, unless the question is worded properly, I guess I can’t answer it.
  2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
    There’s only one woman who dwells in my dreams, and the day she says, “Stop wooing me, Nikhil. Let’s get married!” my dream would’ve come true.
  3. Whose butt would you like to kick?
    Well, I’d make all the politicians of the world bend over and kick them on their butts one-by-one. (What has this got to do with Love, anyway??)
  4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
    Pay off my loans, buy a house by the seaside in Kerala, hire a bunch of actors to act like thugs and ask them to surround my Jodha while she’s walking home, when I appear from nowhere and kick their butts and save her life, hoping that she’ll swoon and fall into my arms.  Then, use the remaining money to live happily with her ever after.
  5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
    Yes. I already have.
  6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
    I think it’s the latter, because knowing that someone loves you and cares for you as much as you love them and care for them, is bliss.
  7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
    Until I’m either dead or married to someone else, which is pretty much the same thing.
  8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
    I tell her I love her. Everyday. I will prove it to her that no one else in the world can love her the way I will. And I do not love her ‘secretly’.
  9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your gf/bf or an actress/actor?
    I’d like to act in an action scene with SRK and kick him in the balls real hard when no one’s looking.
  10. What takes you down the fastest?
    It’s a tie between a fall down the stairs and an empty wallet.
  11. How would you see yourself in ten years time?
    I don’t know. Honest.
  12. What’s your fear?
    I fear she’ll regret her choice.
  13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
    Awesome rockstar, good friend and, according to him,  the craziest guy ever.
  14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
    If these are my only two choices, I’d say Married and Poor, if and only if I can marry the woman I love. Otherwise, I’d want to single and filthy rich.
  15. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
    Say a small prayer. They haven’t been answered yet.
  16. Would you give all in a relationship?
    I’d give more.
  17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
  18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
    Of course. It is always my fault.
  19. Will you marry me? (Original Question: Do you prefer being single or having a relationship?)
    I’ll let her answer this. 🙂
  20. List 6 people to tag:
    Apar, Deeps, Po, Suda, Vaudevillian, Vimal

Anyone else who want’s to pick up the tag is free to do so. Cheers! 🙂

  8. I liked your reaction towards SRK. I hate him too, I do not think he is as good an actor as he should be. But, I wouldn’t go to the extent of kicking him in the balls and dirtying by feet 🙂

  9. “If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

  10. @Rekha
    Yes, it is possible for someone to fall in love with a friend. In fact, since best friends understand each other perfectly, it’s always best when they fall for each other… 🙂

    Oh, you’re welcome dude! 🙂

    Hehe… Yeah, thats also to be considered… 😀

    Yup! It is, isn’t it? 😀

    Proposed, yes. Married, no! 😀

    LOL… Come on, i’m sure you can come up with something… 🙂

    @Ms Cris
    Yeah! 😀

  11. @ Nikhil

    This gem from my rakhi-brother, who was one of the biggest reasons why girls got me samosas and sweets, when I was in college (hah, I said it; I am glad his wife doesn’t read blogs etc because she wants to know all the juice and being the loyal sister, I do not spill):

    “Most love stories are, in the end, unsuccessful. Why? Because the protagonists marry. That is a mistake! You want the story alive? Don’t marry. Then it is an epic, a drama to remember for ages.” 😉

  12. You’ve moved from Karnataka borders to Kerala borders eh!? Interesting… This lady you are in love with must be some lady! You sound very open to talk about it, but then, its all so shrouded in mystery! Well, Good Luck, I say! ‘Coz I can’t for the life of me think of anything else to say to this mystery woman of yours! 😀

    To your post – I like what you would do with your money – saving her from the villian bit – very filmy!! & some women want that! So, hoping your lady love is in that list! 😀

    Q: Why would you propose marriage to someone in a post? Its so un-personal, no? Hmmm… On the other hand though, waiting to see her reply to it! 😀

  13. This post was one more where you could pour more love for sweetheart.

    Did she say yes?

    P.S: I couldn’t help but read Shefaly’s comment. 🙂

  14. ‘I’d like to act in an action scene with SRK and kick him in the balls real hard when no one’s looking.’
    Why when no one’s looking? 😀
    I wanna see that!

  15. yetanother love post? yet another love post?????? 😛 😛 😛 hey bhagavaan, aur kitna? why cant your jodha say yes to you and you can then spare us!!!! 😛 😛

    Please jodha (whoever you are!) answer this question no 19 in affirmation… and save the world by this cracked character!!! 🙂 🙂

  16. Aww!!!!

    Did u get the answer for the 19th ques??? Bolo bolo tell tell….
