Sisterhood of the world QnA

I got nominated for a fun questionnaire by Boiling Wok called ‘Sisterhood of the world Q&A’.


I have lurked on Boiling Wok’s WordPress ever since I started reading her comments on IHM’s blog. I loved her insight on certain taboo topics for women, and her take on gender inequality, feminism and the institution of marriage. Cheers to you, and your thoughts, girl!
She developed a set of questions and these are my answers below:

1. One beauty product you would recommend to your girlfriends.

If you have confused skin thinking that it’s a pimply teenager instead of a 28 year old over-the-hill adult, or suffer from extreme lack of sleep thanks to Netflix and Facebook(stalker!), MAC select cover concealer is your best friend. Period.

2.Three books everybody must read.

a. Harry Potter series : According to me, a person who hasnt read Harry Potter, is missing a bit of his soul. Although a word of caution that i have learned, do not start a fight about “How have you never read/seen Harry Potter!!!” on a date or with someone you are crushing on. Girl, its not gonna get you anywhere.

b. The Kite Runner : It changed my thought process. Past is not something to shut away for good. Revisiting it, facing those demons or just contemplation can help you become a better person. As long as the obsession over past is not unhealthy, it can be a catalyst for a good future.

c. Biology lessons from Std 12th science : It surprises, no, shocks me when women don’t know anything about their own bodies, forget about cluelessness about male anatomy. Ladies, you should at least know what the hell you have on and inside your body and how it functions.

3. Favorite online shopping site.

I am currently obsessed with since I am setting up my new apartment, but is where I get most of my packages from usually.

4. Favorite phone app.

Google maps! God gave me a gift to be able to visualize fluid motion in cavities, but took away my own sense of direction on roads.

5. One dish you are really good at making and its recipe.

I make really good tawa paneer and I follow this recipe here on Veg Recipes of India.

So, now I have my own set of 5 questions for you guys:

1. What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?

2. Which is your favorite ice-cream flavor?

3. If you could make a signature scent, what would it smell like?

4. Describe the last dream you remember. Bonus point if it was naughty. πŸ˜‰

5. What was your last Google search about?

I would like to nominate the following ladies for this questionnaire.

1. Srishty

2. Moo’s Khayals

3. Bhakti

4. Kinmin

5. Pop Goes The Biscuit

6. Cookie

  1. πŸ™‚ lovely answers and Google map is really a bonus…..

    12th standard biology oh I loved it teacher was the most beautiful women teaching us and we made sure not to miss a single lesson..:)


  2. Harry potter series, I have a friend like you who made sure I read the entire series. Although, I liked reading it and loved movies as well. Their creativity is far better than mine.
    But, I do not understand the addiction though.. I cannot bring myself to read second time.

    Aaah, 12th std biology book, i wish every school makes that a vital part of education system. Unfortunately, not every school does that and my school being so backward in certain areas, some of the topics were not taught. We ended up reading it on our own… and that was no where close to real education about female anatomy.*sigh*

    Tawa paneer does look yummy in the picture, does your’s turn out that well too ? πŸ˜‰


    • The addiction is real. Lol. And not good!
      A lot of people I know have gone through the same like in your school. I lucked out that I had an excellent Biology teacher. That’s why I don’t feel shy mentioning my periods or talking about bodies.
      Haha, Tawa Paneer does end up looking like that and tastes really good to me at least. Will report back after I guinea pig someone.

      Liked by 1 person

  3. Taken note of the MAC concealer, because i think I just might be needing it someday soon.

    For the records, I have not read the Harry Potter series & was about to order the box set yesterday when I realized it is currently out of stock. But after reading your post, I am so going to hunt that box set down ASAP.

    Tawa Paneer sounds yum. You have some serious talents girl πŸ™‚


  4. Loved the post PB, and thanks for tagging me, will take it up soon! πŸ˜‰
    I loved the Harry Potter series too, and read all the books within a month I think.. I’d like to go back and read them again sometime! πŸ™‚ I’m also a fan of Khaled Hosseini – his books alter your soul in some way.. Have you read a thousand splendid suns?
