G for..

Laksh had this post that got me all excited. I thought it was one of those tags that would be fun to do.

You leave a comment on this post, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on. You can also leave a comment and not ask for a letter if you want. If you want to keep the chain going, let me know.

My letter was


And my list is:

1. G for God


While I am not very religious, I acknowledge God as being in control of my life to some extent and I take a second to pray before I do something important.

2. G for Grandparents



I love grandparents – all grandparents. I’ve come to realize lately how important they are to their grandchildren, and how different they are from parents.

3. G for Girl children


I love girl children. I think it makes parenting all the more fun, watching them watch themselves in the mirror and taking care to match their clothes with their clips and their shoes.

4. G for Girl friends


I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t have some of my closest girl friends. They are always special – we exchange notes on husbands, cry on each other’s shoulders. Most importantly I know they are always there for me!

5. G for Gravel


 I love the sound of tyres on loose gravel. I like the way it shines clean just after a shower of rain.

6. G for Golgappa


 I love golgappas with anything inside them. I could stuff them with some potatoes, raw onions and ompodi and I can gobble any number of them. Slurp..

7. G for Greenery


I love greenery around me. I am a bit lazy about keeping them green, but I love looking at green fields, green plants. I don’t even need flowers.

8. G for Gifts


I love gifts. I love to give gifts as well as to receive them. In fact, I think I’ve been mostly succesful at gifting the right things (except in the case of my husband where my gifts usually bomb miserably).

9. G for Ganges


One of the most unforgettable memories of my life will be that of bathing in the Ganges. I was so overwhelmed by it’s power and beauty, that I was happy to ignore the others folks upstream who were scrubbing themselves away with soap and water.

10. G for Google


Last and certainly not the least, I love Google. Everything in my life would come to a standstill if I didn’t have Google. I search for everything from recipes, to technical questions to images for this post on Google, and I always find my answer.

So, those were my 10. Any of you want to take it up? Let me know!
