Ashok’s Questions

1. Do you have more faith in your own ability or God?

I  believe everything is (parts of) God. So, I am doubtful of the duality (God versus me) in the first place. To clarify, I am not claiming that I am God (or anything is God; we just all come from Him).

2. Do you like the security of a job or freedom and creativity of an entrepreneur?

Probably a job that gives me a little bit of both.

3.Are you more of an indoor or outdoor person?

I need to be out often but right after, I need to have some me-time at home. So, both.

4.What is your favourite pastime?


5.Are you a spendthrift or the saving kind?

I spent for certain things. I don’t like buying clothes or luxury stuff. But I can spend a lot for traveling.

6.What do you like more, reading or writing?


7.Do you think we are doomed?

Nope. We are just learning and getting better.

8.Who do you love more : children or pets?


9.If you were left alone in a house without internet connectivity, how long do you think, you will last?

The first few days will be hard but then I think I can get used to it and leave without it. But that depends on how much I need it for work. If it is for personal stuff, then I don’t think I will ask for it again after a few days.

10. Are you a balanced person? If not, what is the imbalance about?

Hmm, I am not. I usually experience the extremes and then I find the balance. This holds for everything. I was drinking too much tea. Then, I gave up entirely. Then, I am at a balance now. Without giving up tea entirely, I would not be able to balance.

11. What would you choose: the promise of a simple healthy life v/s lots of money, with health challenges?

Healthy life. Who cares about money.


Saba Niaz does not have questions and she just asks us to tell whatever we want to. So, I just want to tell all of you that I love all of you guys!


I will  also not have questions. You can tell us facts about yourselves in the comments!


As per my usual, I will not nominate anyone or everyone. I would be really happy if everyone shared at least one thing about themselves.
