Given below are answers to Jyoti's question:-

   1. Who is it that inspired you to blog or who got you interested in blogging?
      I was always fond of writing. My cousin, BKChowla, a vetaran blogger inspired me to
      write blogs.
  2. How does blogging help you in your daily life?
     Blogging helps me to keep myself busy. It helps me to be in touch with people. It keeps my brain active.
3.Who would you like to be stranded with in an unknown island for two days?
  I would love to be stranded with, who else, but my hubby.
4.What are the three things that we do not know about you?
   My life is an open book.  The things which nobody knows are my own, which are of no interest to anyone.
5  It is said that we should be grateful in life. What are the 5 things you are grateful for at this point in time?
  i.I am grateful to God for all His mercies.
 ii.I am grateful to my husband for always protecting me in all difficulties.
iii. Grateful to my children for giving me so much love and affection.
iv. Grateful to my colleagues who co operated with me in all situations.
v. Grateful to my friends who always give good advice. In fact I have no grudge against    anyone.   I am lucky I never had an opportunity to have any opposition.
 6. Which blogging platform do you prefer? And why?
     I prefer to write from Blogadda. I never made an attempt to go to any other platform.
7. What are the three places that you would like to visit in 2014?
  i. I wish to visit the highest peak of the Himalayas'
ii. I wish to visit  Badrinath, Kedarnath, and Kailash.
iii.I wish to visit the North Pole and South
8.If you could suggest any family member or non blogging friend to blog who would it be? And why?
  I would love to see my daughter-in-law writing a blog. She is very creative and has a great hold on the language. I also know that it is impossible to persuade her because she is extremely busy  with her job and house.
9. Is there a place you visited recently, that you would love to go back to ? If yes, then tell us why.
 I recently visited Narendra Nagar, a resort famous for spa, beyond Rishikesh. It is a very  peaceful place. Far from the madding crowd.
10. If I were to ask you which book/movie has influenced you the most this year, which one would it be?
       Recently I saw an old Hindi movie, Aashirwad. I  have seen it many times before, but I will not mind seeing it again. It  depicts a bond between a father and a daughter, very emotionally.
