Yes Man! \m/

It’s Tamil New Year’s Day today and I had to celebrate it since I’m a Tamilian too. If knowing that I’m a Tamilian has come as a shock to you, you’re not alone :D!! Most people mistake me for a North Indian, some mistake me as an Anglo-Indian(from when has RoHiT become an Anglo-Indian name?) and the list practically goes on and on. I’ve been mistaken for anything but a Tamilian through most part of my epic journey!
      Uhmmmm may be I’ve this non-tamilian look+accent+behaviour because my mother’s a Tamilian from Kerala, born and brought up in Hyderabad. My father’s a Tamilian born in Kerala, brought up in Punjab, Delhi and almost everywhere throughout India, finally settling in Hyderabad, ‘cos grandpa served the Indian Air-Force and my paternal side had their back-packs ready all the time :D. And me— A pure Hyderabadi at heart and the tongue. I totally can speak Hindi, Telugu and English better than my mother tongue and strange but true- No bad feelings about it from moi :P... Some of my friends call me a 500 rupee note. That's cos I can converse in quite some languages and a 500 rupee note has all the Indian languages on its sides. :P... Great !! I at least know how much I can sell myself for :P..

Yeah so today’s Tamil New year’s day. It’s called “VISHU”!  So you probably want to say Wish u a happy Vishu! It sounds so funny and I so love it. It’s the new year and I am not going to make any resolutions, but I’m going to make sure I do a few things before the the next Tamil New year shows up.

I am going to:-

a) Learn the guitar. Yes yes!

b) Work out to see a 6 pack on my abdomen at least for a few days! I’ve been intrigued what it is about and how it feels. Will will! :D

c) Cut myself free from all the social networking ties for a couple of months again!

d) Hit speeds in excess of 150kmph on Indian roads on a 2-wheeler. And no accidents this year—hopefully! :P

e) Surpass my typing speed of 96wpm.

f) Attend more treks, expeditions and adventure outings. This time, with professionals!

g) Buy a DSLR!

Omg.. I’ve committed myself to a lot of things. None more :D.. Damn Jim Carrey. I watched ‘Yes Man’ yesterday and there’s this super awesome rush of positivity and urge to explore and learn. Woaah and yes, I did not use the word NO today. I said yes to everything! Good thing is, I wasn’t taken advantage of my situation\:D/...

Wow! I can't believe the count-down is now into the single digits. 8 days before I bid adieu to my bloggy bloggy :D


~~Day 14 of my blog-a-day for 22 days marathon. Memoirs of a Drunken Junkie shuts down on the 22nd of April :-)
