The Five Pointed Tag

Dipali tagged me for this one.

Them are the rules:

Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better. Now don’t forget to read the archived posts and leave comments.

Family: I don't write about my family much so this one was hard to find. Even then, it's really not about my mother or my relationship with her but more a riff about a fake knee.

Friend: Everyone needs that one friend. No matter how different we really are, how divergent our lives, the physical distances between us, we can talk and cry and bitch and be evil and know that we are forgiven. We reminisce and recapture our youth when one of us says, "remember when." I have not named her here but she knows who she is.

Me: I am cheating with this one because I am not linking to just one post but pointing you towards what I wrote in December 2006. For some reason that month captured different facets of me. From the overriding satisfaction of my book being published to a new haircut...with some ruminations thrown in. The end of a year always makes me write more for some reason.

My Love: In keeping with my rule for not openly blogging about my family, which includes B, there weren't many posts to choose from. But I did find this one...and even this is intertwined with thoughts about Indian independence since our anniversary is on August 15th (to match my birthday on Jan 26 :-)

Anything I like: I am actually missing Boston...or perhaps I am just missing the US, especially during these exciting elections. So, for some reason this strange post always make me smile and feel nostalgic for lost times.

So, that's it. Tag done. Yay!

The people I'd like to tag are: Bina, Soniah, Deepti, Temporal, and Amrita.
