Wow! Thanks, Imran Saeed, for nominating me.
Let me answer your questions first:
What do you enjoy most about blogging? Meeting different people from all across the planet.
If you had a chance to bring back one of the greatest names of literature that are deceased so they could groom you, who would it be and why? Emily Bronte. Her untimely death was a loss to the world and, if given the opportunity, I’d have her resurrected to train me on writing such mesmerising, tormenting epics.
Have you ever lost track of time while reading a piece of literature or book? Tell us its title if the answer is yes. Multiple times. It happened in childhood while reading Enid Blyton, Hardy Boys or (later) Treasure Island and Great Expectations. It happens every time I read a novel. The last time it happened was while reading Exit West.
If you had the skills of Cobb from the movie Inception and enough resources to incept everyone in the world, what ideas would you plant in their minds? To donate generously for impoverished people. While everyone needn’t live in a bed of roses, the basic human needs, namely food and adequate shelter need to be made available for everyone irrespective of the families they chose (?) to born in.
If you could adopt the life of any character you’ve ever read about in a book who would it be? I’m always a hopeless romantic like Philip Pirrip.
I’d like to nominate the following bloggers:
Here are the questions for my nominees:
What brought you to blogging?
What’s your writing/blogging goal for 2018?
Which novel agitated or shook you up the most?
What superpower would you like to possess?
What do you think should be done to minimise crimes against women and children?

Sometimes, in the midst of a
young sleepless night,
intriguing questions strike me.
What if Neruda was born
somewhere in Benin?
Would he go on to write poems
or be a dressmaker?
Had Newton tried his hands
at his neighbour’s piano
and Beethoven stalked a
science teacher in his teens,
would we be left with Newton’s symphonies
and Beethoven’s laws of motion?
Had Remus outdone Romulus,
would we say
“Rem was not built in a day?”
