Resistance is futile

It’s the second time I’ve been tagged for this one, first by Chandni and then by Anasuya and the latter is family so I can hardly refuse. 🙂

I’ve decided to go ahead and inflict the personal and the self-indulgent on you. So here’s the tag:

Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better.

Family: Now, this is tough because some time back, I moved / removed most of the personal posts from this blog but here’s what still remains — On Calcutta summers and something on Netaji.

Friend: This one’s easy. There’s Esther, Hajira, and Rita in Deorali, Jaigaon — all women I met during my travels and may never see again but who have affected and influenced me in various ways.

Myself: Ah…do this and this count?

My love: What fun! There’s chick flicks, beer, and my beloved city.

Anything I like: On sexism and Internet purdah and a piece on one of my favourite movies, Maurice.

And I tag OJ who I adore, Iz whose writing is both funny and heartbreaking, Falstaff who I regularly argue with on the blogosphere and who probably doesn’t do tags, and new blog friends Pongam and IndieQuill.

  1. Ack! So now in addition to the 432 existing posts about me, you expect me to come up with one about me? Whaddya think I am…narcissistic?
    Oh well. JUST because you said you adore me, girl. JUST because.

  2. I _love_ being the oppressor; this is fun!!!

    Tall order Ghosh. This will take me some time to do. But I will promise. I also thought about what you said the other day, about my blog streaming pain. And I feel, you know, just because I got pain, doesn’t mean I believe in it. does that make sense?

    Loved loved loved your new poem by the way.

  4. Oh alright. All done now!
