  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  4. Nominate up to 11 new blogs to receive the award, write them 11 new questions and notify them about the nomination.

Era’s Questions for me :

  1. Do you think your name is cute?
    I do not know if it is cute, but I love my name πŸ™‚
    Nima Mohan – I keep my maiden name even after marriage πŸ™‚
  2. If you had a chance to name yourself, which name would you choose and why?
    I don’t know.
    But if at that point of time, If I know the epics or mythologies in India, I am sure to choose one from them πŸ™‚
  3. Do you have any hobbies other than writing
    I used to dance and have learnt a bit of Carnatic music ( Classical music). But not connected to them since I joined for job and now,
    I watch a lot of classical dance videos and listen to songs.
  4. Be it books or movies, if given chance, which character’s life would you choose to live and why?
    I won’t choose any. I am happy the way I am :)
  5. If you have a job now, are you happy with it? If you could change it now, which one would you choose?
    The only job I have now is called ” Motherhood” and I enjoy it.
    But it is not that I don’t get upset. of course I do and sometimes I lose my temper. But that is what all moms are like !!

  6. Do you like to cook?
    I cook pretty well, but I take breaks too. If not in the mood, I do have the freedom to eat out or order food home ( Thanks to hubby for that πŸ™‚ ). And if you have read my previous award posts, you know that my husband is an excellent cook. So am kind of lucky in that area πŸ˜€
  7. Which is your Zodiac sign?
    CAPRICORN – which is the tenth in zodiac. Hence the blog name- thetenthzodiac πŸ™‚ And I share it with you Era !!
  8. Do you believe in predictions made for your zodiac sign?
    yes I do πŸ™‚
    Not only in the predictions based on zodiac signs, but also in pure astrology based on horoscopes. Being born into a Hindu family, I have grown up listening to all those things. But I take care not to get too much involved too. I always leave it to God and I have immense faith in God πŸ™‚

  9. Are you, so far, proud, and satisfied with your blog’s progress?
    Yes I am .
    Something that I started just for the fun of knowing has turned into my passion now πŸ™‚

  10. What’s the most useless piece of knowledge you know?
    I dont know πŸ™‚
  11. Which is your favorite work from your blog? Leave a link so everyone can enjoy it.
    I have several of them. I had taken part in OctPoWriMo which is short for October Poetry Writing Month. This I discovered a soon as I started my blog, and I joined the challenge just to see how good I am . I wrote one poem for each day of the month and it can be under the header OctPoWriMo in my blog. But maybe because I did not read other blog posts or some other factor, I still have poems under that head that has not even one like. Though I was sad initially, as time moved on, I too did. All those poems were written with so much effort and dedication. So I f you please, I would request you all to go through at least some of the poems and let me know about them πŸ™‚
