A tag which invariably ends with music...

So I've been tagged by Mahesh and I'm not sure I'll pick the right answer to all the questions posed in the tag... let's see how it goes. Mahesh is a friend from work, I did not really get to know him until we played the secret Santa game at work. He was my secret Santa, and an incredibly charming one at that. We got to know each other and it turns out, he blogs too... that kinda cemented our friendship. He is an avid movie watcher and reviews all sorts of movies in his blog regularly. He loves to read too, and keeps us updated bout book fairs in the city. He is like a perennial ray of sunshine, no matter what life deals him... he always seems to have a sunny disposition. That is something I am still learning to acquire. And to top it all, he effortlessly weaves words to create really good poems. He has some major poetry writing skills and his poems are a joy to read... he wears his heart on his sleeve and he harbours a good soul, I'm glad he got to pick my name one December morning.

So getting started on the tag, I have to give you all links to 

My most beautiful post : I know it probably means quality wise, but I'll give you the most visually beautiful post. It has to be this, click on the first picture for a larger view. That is currently my mobile phone screen saver too... somehow the picture fills me with a sense of peace.

My most popular post : This is easy, it is the only post with the most number of views. I wrote bout Taylor Swift's album a few years back and now that she's a huge phenomenon, the views keep increasing. But I don't like her much these days, she has gone over to the other side... can't stand her recent songs. I liked her when she was the normal curly haired girl with a guitar who sang bout Tim Mcgraw, teardrops on my guitar and love story.

My most helpful post : Has to be the few recipes I put up, especially the beef one. And of course these recipes are helpful to me too... I only put up tried and tested recipes of what I like, so whenever I want to cook something specific I just search for it on my blog. 

My most controversial post : Only with a lot of readers will controversy arise, with the handful that (are forced to/willingly) read my blog... you can't really except controversy. But I'll give you a post bout my thoughts on the nuclear power projects that is indeed creating a great controversy in this state and ultimately in the world too. 

A post whose success surprised you : This I really don't know, I don't expect much when I post something. If I had to guess, I would say the review of Lee Brice's recent album, Hard to Love. When Lee Brice himself (or the people that manage his Facebook page) posted the link to my blog on his Facebook, I did receive comments from many Lee Brice fans. 

A post that didn't receive the attention it deserved : None of my posts receive the attention they deserve... but if I have to pick one, I'd probably say my recent post, cause I wrote a poem in it and nobody really saw it. I mean they saw it but they never really got that I wrote it... tends to happen when I talk too much bout country music, people tend to just graze over the surface. It's partly my fault too, I can't stop writing bout country music.... and most people I know don't really care for country music, which I find rather baffling. So anyway, now that you know, go read my poem.

A post which you are most proud of : Not proud of as in 'yeah great job' kinda way, but proud in the sense that I  put into words what I was feeling

So that's it, I now have to tag five other people... but seeing that many people I know don't write a blog, I would like my readers to play this game. You can make a note of the answers and email them to me and I shall post them on my blog. It will give me a chance to explore new music... so Jude, Sajeeve, Megha, Candice, Carol, Shilpa, Mahesh and anybody else who wants to share their taste in music, please join in.

What an intro I am blushing :)

The post on the nuclear power-plant was good.

My tastes in music from the West go to the Beatles, Cliff Richards, Frank Sinatra and a bit of George Williams. Don't understand much of the current lot all visual gimmickery and stuff.

The poem was good :)!

Mahesh is a sweetheart. Even I've been reading his blog for some months now and I agree to the glowing introduction that you have given him.

Never imagined that I would graze through posts (Feeling sheepish and guilty).

Joy always,

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

A Corpse in the Ground

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
