Seven sixes.

Priya tagged me recently and as a result, I'm supposed to share 7 things about myself on this blog. So I thought and thought. And thought. For days. And then, minutes ago, while sitting on that magical thought-inspiring potty of mine, I just had an idea. I'm 42 (for a few months more, at any rate) and 7 x 6 = 42. So here is my list of seven things about me:

1. Six years old, Awali, Bahrain:
I had the reading level of an eleven year old.

2. Twelve years old, Bishop Cotton Girls School, Bangalore, India:
I woke up with a sense of dread and despair every morning.

3. Eighteen years old, Warrensburg, Missouri, USA:
I fell off the sidewalk and broke my foot.

4. Twenty four years old, London:
I stood in Charles Dickens' study.

5. Thirty years old, FP7, Bahrain:
I looked Absolutly gorgeous.

6. Thirty six years old, Jidhafs, Bahrain:
I took the pulse of a dying man, and felt it stop.

7. Forty two years old:
I stopped trying to save the world.

Really enjoyed reading your answers.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. No I am not stopping to blog! In fact I quite like it. Read a bit about Askios and the work you do. I am volunteering for RAHI in Delhi, which also works on CSA.
Would love to hear more from you!

Nice to hear from you Iris and glad you haven't stopped blogging (though I noticed your entries are very minimalistic and to the point! Not at all like my long ramayans. Yes I know RAHI in fact Anuja is both a friend and inspiration to me!
