Trip To India Postponed Again

Well, my trip to India has been postponed, yet again. I was really looking forward to the trip in Dec but a combination of work and life in general forced me to postpone it from Dec 2010 to Jan 2011 and then from Jan 2011 to April 2011. I will not go into the reasons but let’s just say life sucks when your plans don’t stick.

Anyway, I realised a few weeks ago that when I think about it, I really don’t know my folks at all. I mean, what were their aspirations growing up, what were their best friends like, what were they like as teens, their heartbreaks and their joys. Nothing. Nada.

So I have come up with some questions. I will be recording their replies and then I am going to up those files on my social network (after editing, of course!)

To that end I need your help. What questions should I ask? I know some specific ones but the general questions that might provide me with thought provoking answers. Here is a list I have in mind. Please add to it. It would make my life so much easier.

    1) What is the happiest memory you have till date?
    2) What is the saddest?
    3) What did you want to be when you were 15?
    4) What did you fear the most?

    thought i’d leave a few for you to ponder….though am starting to read your blog too late in the day….how about:
    1. what keeps you awake at night?
    2. who’s your fav author? which book did you last read?
    3. what of me do you see in rhea?
    4. what of me would you like to see in rhea?
    5. what prompted papa to take up playing the casio? did he always have this interest in music or was it mummy’s singing or sudhir uncle’s karaoke machine?

    i’ll post more when i think of them…is your plan happening this year? mom/dad/pooja/rishi will be here in may….
