Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day After Orthodox Easter?

Happy Monday! I’m HEALTHY!!!! Thank goodness. The sickness is totally 100% gone, now I just have to deal with the after effects of eating weird food and not exercising a lot and sleeping weird for the past month.

Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “What is your favorite Varun Dhawan movie?” to “do they celebrate Easter in India?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions!

Now, question for you! It’s Arijit Singh’s Birthday! What is your favorite Arijit song?

I’m trite and basic and predictable, but “Tum hi Ho”. It’s so good!

  1. I love Tum Hi Ho, but now my favourite song is Yaar Illahi. I can’t call it Arjit’s song because there are other singers too, but his part is the most important one so I think it qualifies:


  2. In your last thinky post Twinkles wrote there should be tag in movie reviews e.g Angst with a happy ending, rain scenes, reincarnation etc What tags would make you think “I must absolutely watch it”? Mine would be : love triangle, old lovers meet again after years, drums, classical dancing.

    • Gee, I wonder who your favorite movie star is?

      Also, I mentioned your defense of fanfic to my friend and she wants to know what your AO id is so she can read it 🙂


  3. Ugh! Tough one, but my favorites are definitely these (choosing one is hopeless for me).

    My first and definite heartbreak song.

    My most repeated song from the movie. It is just so good!

    This is just full-on beauty.

    This is just so calming.


  4. I have avoided boasting on my Pesah cooking while you’ve been too sick to be envious. I do have to admit that, despite my previous professed ignorance re: Easter food, my mind has been a little changed this weekend. A friend kidnapped me to a Greek Orthodox service at literal midnight. Our reward for still being standing and semi-conscious at 4:00 a.m. was this really wonderful lemony soup made out of lamb’s tongue and liver. Also, the bishop handed me an egg, and now my hands–which already had fading kofer/henna from Pesah the previous week–are still covered in weird red egg dye. I look like I fought a bottle of iodine and lost.

    But ANYWAY, ever since your Easter/Pesah/Ramadan food post I have been saving this image: . The tall conical things are kusa mashy, zucchinis stuffed with ground lamb and vegetables. In the white bowl, maror (which for us is a fennel/dill salad with very sour dressing made of pickled lemons). Green stuff is roz wa salq, sort of like cross between risotto and ghormeh sabzi. (I also put a photo of the MOUNTAIN of chard I had to clean/grind to make only a quart of this dish. There’s, like, twenty-five bucks of chard in there.) Little square things, orsa or homemade matsot flavored with coriander. White sauce on plate, toumy or garlic relish to eat with all the other savory things. In the teacup, sharbat aynab. . . because most Egyptian Karaites don’t eat fermented things during Hag Hamatsot, we have to make fresh raisin or grape drinks rather than having wine with seder. And finally, in the little green bowl, mahalabia. It’s a really rich pudding made with half and half and rice flour. I flavored it with cardamom, black pepper, and mahlab.

    For Arjit:

    Or even:


  5. Glad to hear you’re feeling healthy and hope you still have the chance to continue to get some rest!

    Curious, why haven’t you reviewed Dil Dhadakne Do? I found the writing, plot and acting SO strong across the board, even the minor characters were portrayed with such depth (perhaps Anushka’s was the only character that needed better fleshing out), so was searching your blog for your view and turns out there was no record. On that note, what did you think of Gully Boy too?


  6. Oof, glad you’re healthy!

    For Arijit, one of these – (funny that both movies have Saif playing a spy)


    It struck me how he sounds so different in them, he has a much deeper voice now. I actually fell in love with Saware hearing Neeti Mohan’s version and prefer that, not surprising as she is awesome!


  7. Yay! Welcome back to health! Is Albie dog back home yet?

    What do you think about the SRK/Rajkumar Hirani thing (teaser? Is the trailer out?)

    My favorite Arijit Singh song is Lal Ishq, because it’s so fun to sing along. Slow enough for non Hindi speakers.

    A bit obscure, but he did a version of the Rabindrasangeet Amaro Porano Jaha Chaya for the series Stories from Rabindranath Tagore which was amazing.


  8. But what IS your favorite Varun movie??

    So glad you’re back! Here’s a list of my favorite Arijit songs:



    Dilli Wali Girlfriend


    Mast Magan

    First Class

    Ki Honda Pyaar
