Sach ka saamna - tagged!

Getting tagged is something that was very much in vogue when I started blogging (2005 puff! Its been a long time!!!). Now here, I am again tagged by my good friend Varun Reddy, and I thought it has really been long that I have done something like this, so why not give it a try!

Before starting, I would like to take the oath on the sacred Geeta (seen it many hindi movies) – “Mein jo kahunga sach kahunga.. aur sach ke sivay aur kuch nahi kahunga!”

Tagged By: Varun Reddy (U got me here dude!)
The ground rules
RULE 1- You can only say Guilty (means YES) or Innocent (means NO)
RULE 2- You are not allowed to explain anything unless someone messages you and asks!
RULE 3- Copy and paste this into your notes, delete mine and type in your answers and tag your friends to answer this.

I have always been an iconoclast, without much adherence to rules n crap, so RULE 2 I am sorry. I will have to explain at some places to make it more readable.

Also, RULE 3, I am sorry, as I don’t think I should compulsorily tag a few names and then get accused of missing out on others. I don’t even want to be in that phase where I keep sulking, that someone I have tagged has not cared to answer.

So, I rather make this appeal, that everyone reading this should answer these questions, and get some bhoj out of them!

Let me begin…

Asked someone to marry you? Guilty (well, wish you a very happy married life. )

Ever kissed someone of the same sex? Guilty ( well, not the kiss kiss kinds, it was just a normal game of truth or dare!!)

Danced on a table in a bar? Guilty (not exactly in a bar, but on a table in public yes, and yes I was drunk!)

Ever told a lie? Guilty (may times)

Had feelings for someone whom you can’t have back? Guilty (Long story, will take a complete post!)

Kissed a picture? Innocent (why??)

Slept in until 5 PM? Guilty (Many a times!)

Fallen asleep at work/school? Guilty (Well, I am from a B-School!)

Held a snake? Guilty (Snake park in Chennai!)

Been suspended from school? Guilty (well!)

Worked at a fast food restaurant? Innocent. ( I so regret this, I want to have this kinda experience!)

Stolen from a store? Guilty (remember stealing a bar of 5-star when I was 12 years old something. The irony – I now work for a chocolate company!)

Been fired from a job? Innocent. (I am still on my first job!)

Done something you regret? Innocent (No regrets, this is the life mantra. The bad phases due to some avoidable doing is just a learning. No regrets!)

Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose? Innocent (now why would that happen)

Caught a snowflake on your tongue? Innocent (Snowflake??, I think a more relevant to India question would be “caught a fly on your tongue?”. The answer for this could be “Guilty”. It was unintentional though)

Kissed in the rain? Innocent (In the rain! One more thing that I desperately want to do)

Sat on a roof top? Guilty (Everyday!)

Kissed someone you shouldn’t? Innocent. (what do you mean by shouldn’t. I am not killing anyone!)

Sang in the shower? Guilty (Everyday again! I dare not do that in the open, so the shower is the safest place to vent out my throat muscles to stretch )

Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on? Guilty (many a times. Thank you bro.. this is the way he has thought me swimming)

Shaved your head? Guilty. (heard of tirupati balaji!)

Had a boxing membership? Innocent. (again I wish I did, atleast the card would have scared many people!)

Made a girlfriend cry? Guilty or innocent (No comments!)

Been in a band? Innocent. ( I wish I did, even tried playing the guitar. Thanks you Puneet. Realized soon enough that it was not meant for me! Thank you bro, for making me realize this!)

Shot a gun? Guilty (yes, the ones we used to get during diwali!)

Donated Blood? Innocent (scared!)

Eaten alligator meat? Innocent. (I wish I get to eat it someday!)

Eaten cheesecake? Guilty (why not?)

Still love someone you shouldn’t? Innocent (again what do you mean by you shouldn’t?)

Have/had a tattoo? Guilty (yeah, Bubbaloo has tattoo promo running right now and it is cool. Marketing it through every channel)

Liked someone, but will never tell who? Guilty (now those silent crushes I am sure everyone has.

Been too honest? Guilty (dangerously so)

Ruined a surprise? Guilty (Sorry bro, I did tell mom that I was sending the gifts!, So ruined the surprise that my bro wanted to give my parents)

Ate in a restaurant and got really bloated that you couldn’t walk afterwards? Guilty (I know, it does not show in my flabber)

Erased someone in your friends list? Innocent (what difference would it make?)

Dressed in a woman’s clothes (if you’re a guy) or man’s clothes (if you’re a girl)? Innocent. (fetish, will sure try it out someday!)

Joined a pageant? Innocent. (Nah!)

Been told that you’re handsome or beautiful by someone who totally meant what they said? Guilty (many a times, and I would totally want to believe that they completely meant what they said

Had communication with your ex? Guilty (han, we still talk regularly)

Got totally drunk on the night before exam? Guilty (this is something I consider brings in good luck. Was totally drunk before CAT, JMET and even the investment management exam in L. it has worked. Whisky it has to be)

Got totally angry that you cried so hard? Innocent. (why cry when angry?)

Huh! Now I understand what do people go through when they are sitting on the wrong side of the table during “sach ka saamna” kind of shows. The sense of humuor needs to be at its best while answering any of the questions.

So, that was it guys. I now request you to take it forward and let it out!


  1. May be your guilt of having stolen a 5-Star made you realize that if you wanna go to heaven, you got to make amends and give back to the firm what you took from them :D

    Fetish eh? Ha ha ha...

    You do have a honest sense of humor - I was right in tagging you :)
