Answers - Eight Truths and a Lie

Okay, here is the answer and some details about the previous post of mine. I could have just given out the answer in the comment section of the previous post itself, but drawing some inspiration from Sayesha's post I thought let me go into the details :)

1. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a railway engine driver. I think the correct term for that profession is "Engineer". I did become an Engineer, but in a totally different domain.
This one is so very TRUE. I have always been fascinated by trains and been wanting to drive one since I was a kid. I just don't know how to make it happen. As far as I know, the railways have very strict rules about who all are allowed inside the cabin of a railway engine.

2. I am not very fond of my real name. I prefer having a common name than an uncommon name.
Again TRUE. I have always preferred having a common name. When I was a kid, it used to be so embarassing when I used to go to my friends houses and I had to repeat my name atleast twice before my friends parents could get what it was :( Yeah, I know that was a long time ago. The thought is still there though!

3. When I was 19 years old, I got rejected at a blood donation camp because I was quite below the eligible weight limit of 50 Kgs.
Very much TRUE. There was a blood donation camp at college when I was in the first year of engineering. I filled up the required form and went upto the doctor. He took some of my details and made me stand on the weighing machine. The scale read 46 Kgs (with me in a jeans and sports shoes). He immediately (in a loud voice) told me that I was not eligible as I was below the weight limit and made two huge cross marks on my sheet. Everyone around were staring and my friends were howling with laughter.

4. I think people who write with their left hand are quite cool.
TRUE. No logical reason for this.

5. When I was in high school, I thought that babies are conceived when the guy ties the mangalsutra around the girl's neck during the marriage.
FALSE. Lets just say that I was quite "educated" when I was in high school. It was friend of mine who thought the above when he was in school. I had laughed till my stomach hurt when I came to know about it.

6. I think cockroaches are extremely gross. Infact, they kind of freak me out.
TRUE. Roaches are one such tribe that I just cannot tolerate! Ask her.

7. I love spending time at the beach! Infact, my ideal house will be next to a beach, with my room balcony overlooking the ocean.
TRUE. I am a beach lover and would prefer going to a beach even in the middle of the scorching summer. There is nothig more calming then lyng on the beach with a cool drink in the hand and staring at the expanse of water while pondering about life and other stuff that matter. Or taking a nap :)

8. I am quite shy around strangers and it takes me sometime to get comfortable with them around.
TRUE. Some people who know me very well may find this hard to believe, but it is true. Try remembering the first couple of times you met me (in a group) and how quiet I was.

9. I have never been to any live concert inspite of so many of them happening in Bangalore.
TRUE. I am so embarassed to even say this. The thing is I don't follow English music very much. I am more of a bollywood banda! Its a pity that we dont have any bollywood stars performing in Bangalore. Shah Rukh Khan did perform here once but I was not able to attend it that time and I still have not forgiven myself for it!
