Monday Delight- Kajal aka The Pink Orchid

Interviewee - Kajal aka The Pink Orchid

Admin:
kajal singh, are u ready, shall we start?

Kajal:
yup!

Admin:
give a short interesting intro of urself and ur blog! take ur time. no issues! :)

Kajal:
Kajal (The Pink Orchid) is a kid in the frame of a woman, it just means I can love as innocently as a kid and i can hate as much as a kid can! my blog is all about me and everyone else who touches my life in a good or a not-so good way. my blog is everything else except sports and politics!

Admin:
kid in the frame of a woman? thats interesting! doesn't that woman in ur heart come to the fore sometimes?

Kajal:
she does and the kid and this woman have had awesome fights a number of times.. sometimes the kid wins and
sometimes the woman.. i love both of them..


Admin:
u say your blog is not about politics... what about politics in blogging? do u feel there are some who are superior or leader in blogging, and that person expects others to follow?

Kajal:
ah.. its funny.. what do you mean by superiority in blogging..? no one is superior here.. some are friendly.. some are kind.. some are way too talented.. and some write from their heart.. i dont see any politics in blogging... and if there is anyone trying to do politics here he/she is not loved.. and wont be going far..

Admin:
ah.. very interesting reply.

Kajal:
thank you.. i meant it..

Admin:
yes. now, if u are made to choose between poetry and prose, which would u choose? which way do u feel more comfortable to express ur heart.. ur thoughts?

Kajal:
i'd chose poetry anyday.. it's been my first love.. since the age of 12.. i dont count rant as prose.. but rant is my vent and cant do without it too..

Admin:
oh that is nice... to be a poetess that early is quite remarkable. u r the poetic princess of the lounge? i've seen that name being present in many of ur comments... justified nickname don't u think?

Kajal:
no I really don't think .. it is justified. if poetesses are to be called princesses.. then all the girls who can rhyme should be referred as princesses.. because poetry makes you rule the heart..
for some the rule lasts a few seconds... and for some it stays forever.. that's all.. all i meant to say is all poems leave an impact..

Admin:
but the lounge seems to agree unanimously that u r the poetry princess.... ur posts make a valid point too. ur rule has lasted quite a long time. u r also the top commenter in WL, with more than 600 comments among the last 5000. u must be proud to call lounge second home...

Kajal:
600 among 5000.. phew I didnt know that.. lol ..what about the remaining 4400..that's a huge figure.. and makes the title unjustified.. i am so proud.. but the title is just because of the lounge and its writers love me.. and I love them a lot.. may be that's why because trust me there are so many talented writers than me.. i dont even write to excel.. i just write because I feel like it..

Admin:
the lounge is full of talented writers. why to compare two diamonds eh? each is as good as the next....

Kajal:
you got my point :)

Admin:
u write bcz u feel like it...? when does the "feel" usually come? is there any time? or does it depend on ur emotions too?

Kajal:
not on emotions 'too', on emotions 'only' :) off late i have been trying fiction.. but there is nothing like writing your heart out in the form of a poem..

Admin:
that is true. someone told me that u design headers for blogs too... is it? yes/no... :)

Kajal:
ah that is just for..

Admin:
just for... meaning u do design them right?

Kajal:
i do.. but those are just some amateur attempts.. i hope iMAZE is not listening.. they rock!

Admin:
iMaze is not part of the question! :P
good. if u were given oppprtunity to design a new header for lounge, what would u change in the current one?

Kajal:
oh god! no, the header of the lounge is too good.. i wil not change it into anything..

Admin:
no choice. u HAVE to change and make new header (hypothetically). what would u change?

Kajal:
that's a tough one.. probably.. i would have filled it with a lot of emotions.. sadness happiness friendship colors.and morning..

Admin:
that is quite a nice idea. a possibilty for the future certainly i feel.

Kajal:
ah no not at all.. as I said I love the banner..

Admin:
ah... but change is sometimes needed right.. .we'll cross that bridge when v come to it... after joining lounge.. u've got quite many nicknames i think?

Kajal:
loads of them... everyone here gets nicknames..

Admin:
top 3... what would it be?

Kajal:
:)
bhondu, callie, kan. undoubtedly! then there are a lot more..

Admin:
thats nice... why these 3 occupy the top slots?

Kajal:
bhondu is given by Sandeep - my favorite human being in the universe
callie - by my brother vinu..
Kann - my first friend in blogsvillle..

Admin:
don't u think ur brother might take offence at ur calling Sandeep as ur favorite in the universe?

Kajal:
ah no.. he understands.. he is the best brother in the world.. he knows he is someone I'd be there for.. always. .and these was no ranking. if sandeep is my most favorite person.. vinu is someone I can't go on without..

Admin:
that is sweet... he must be proud to have such a darling sister... now we head for small break. ... what time would u like to resume?

Kajal:
anytime you are back..

Admin:
ok. that is generous. thank you.
__________________________
Admin:
i am back. shall we continue?

Kajal:
:) yes sir

Admin:
right. is WL the only group blog u r a member of? if not, can u describe the other blogs? :)

Kajal:
i am a part of Time to Rhyme with my bro Vinu.. there we co-write poems and we love doing it... we do it for our own selves.. poetry has a very very important place in our hearts and bhaai is too good!
i am also a part of Gateway of India where we write about the country and everything about it..
unfortunately i havent been able to contribute much but will do it soon..

Admin:
that is nice. Gateway of India, it tells all about India according to you. What do you see as India's biggest setback? Why and how can the setback be avoided in future?

Kajal:
the only setback is too much of talking and no action and the only solution is trying to stop the blame game..

Admin:
ah, aptly put. it is election time now. voting is the way to make sure the right ppl are there in the power seat.. but only 45 or 50 percent seem to vote. why do u think is this?

Kajal:
as i said too much of talking and less or no action,,

Admin:
r u there? its been a while since u typed anythin...

Kajal:
sorry i was called by mom

as i said too much of talking and less or no action,,
the youth of the country is also contributing to the talking brigade.

Admin:
right. talk shd be justified by action then? no false promises etc. good idea. u should enter politics. India will become better then. why don't u?
:)

Kajal:
exactly.. you know what i might enter politics one day.. you never know..
:) but before that I need to work a lot for the country, for the people to understand what is that i believe in..

Admin:
u got a lounge full of votes if u ever decide to run. thats for sure. :)

Kajal:
i am sure someone would need a lot more votes than that to win.. but I am sure WL can give all the motivation one needs for not giving up.. :)

Admin:
that u can be guaranteed of..what of Kajal's perfect date? what kind of person would ur date be?

Kajal:
Kajal's date.. hmmm.. he has to be someone who can understand her million emotions
and be there for her forever and love her more than any amount of love that exists in the world... and trust me he'd be Kajal's whole world.. :)

Admin:
recently there was a controversy about "Irresistible" series in WL. do u think the series was that bad? why do u think the controversy happened?

Kajal:
the series was one of the best things that happened to lounge .. even if some people might disagree, the pics went a little overboard...all i mean is a pic is just for supporting the poem but not overshadow it..

Admin:
what pics would be appropriate for such a sensual series if u would...? perhaps, japanese anime or a drawing or something like that? i mean after all, the pic should be there...
since it helps the reader to understand what it is about. not all are versed to understand poetic depth right?

Kajal:
yeah..an anime.. or anything like that.. even real life pictures could be there but it doesnt have to be very descriptive.. but when I say all this I just mean that something like this,
its not suitable for a place like writers' lounge where we have readers of all age groups.. and is most visited webpage in so many homes where there are other family members.. it can go on in personal blogs because we are individually responsible for own spaces but for a group blog
we have to think of a lot of other things than just posting :) phew! i talk a lot..

Admin:
very apt views. lounge i am sure agrees with what u have said. talking isn't a bore when the person who is listening is interested. u r an admin/moderator at lounge right? did it come as a surprise to you when u found out u were made admin ? did u read announcement first or did someone tell u b4 u saw?

Kajal:
I came to know of from the post..I had been given hints before but I was not ready to believe it
because it could have been too good to be true.. but the post confirmed it.. I just hope I keep doing the good work and don't let down the trust that rests on me..

Admin:
u will live up to expectations for sure... did u get any WL awards of excellence?
how many u got? what all?

Kajal:
I got four awards :) and all four of them are very special.. :) awards make one feel so loved and it tells you to 'keep it up and keep growing'

Admin:
what awards u got? name them.

Kajal:
# Most Motivating Commenter
# Poetic Co - writes with Vinu
# Ms. Consistent @ Lounge (English - Poetry)
# Best Romantic Story (series) with Sandeep for Golu-Bhondu

Admin:
thats nice. there was one award that was left to a certain member to decide. which was that?

Kajal:
yes that Award was left for Prats to decide. it was about who has been trying all the new poetic styles taught at WL and beautifully so... sorry got dc . you were typing something.

Admin:

right... no issues... if u were in Prats position, considering lessons till today, who would u pick as the winner of that award? :D

Kajal:
I think I'd pick Tan.. Vinu could be picked too but I feel he himself is a master of poetry
and he keeps trying a lot of other poetic styles..

Admin:
oh, is it? what about you? on a scale of 1 to 10, what would ur grade be as a student?

Kajal:
I am not a very good student. i bunk a lot of poetic classes.. but whatever classes I have attended I make sure that I attempt those styles well.. :) and some of them are liked or at least I hope that they are.. :)

Admin:
very modest student too. thats nice to see. you read and comment a lot on WL. who would u say has the shortest fuse in WL... ? and u dint tell ur grade. 1 to 10. what ur grade in lessons?

Kajal:
explain shortest fuse. my grade would be a sad 4. i guess Prats should be the one grading not me..

Admin:
short fuse meaning temper... gets angry at small incidents...

Kajal:
Ste and I..have the shortest fuse.. rest all are mahaan.. Chirag gets pissed soon too but he is doing pretty fine off late..

Admin:
ok. how u think yourself , chirag and ste can ctrl the temper? any advice or views?

Kajal:
lol no advices for me.. because on me no advices work..
the same goes for Ste.. Having Sandeep around keeps things calm though.. even Vinu helps bringing the temperatures down.. Chirag doesnt need control measures he is doing ifne..

Admin:
ur blogs are named "Unknown Quest" and "Mush Factor" ... why the choice of these names?

Kajal:
both the names are self explanatory.. Unknown Quest because I am one person who doesnt have a goal. I have no clue where i am going.. but i am going.. living one day at a time and giving it my all in any way i could.
Mush factor is for the hopeless romantic that i am..

Admin:
interesting choices... both seem to be popular... so whatever be the destination, ur travels having so many companions to keep u moving... their support must be a big factor... who would u say is ur most travelled companion?

Kajal:
most travelled companion as in who has been with me all the while..? in the blog world..

Admin:
yes... or who is there most of the time... to keep supporting u...

Kajal:
:) ah I am one lucky girl on the planet because all those who joined me in the journey of blogging have stayed.. with me from then on.. Sawan, Andy, Siva are some of the companions who have been around from day one.. but ofcourse there are soooooooooo many of them who stayed ... walked with me and have laughed smiled and cried with me..

Admin:
that is delightful... good to know u have such a loyal following... ur smile, it is very captivating... making anyone smile during joy is easy, but during their sorrows is difficult..
what makes the pink orchid smile during her sorrows..?


Kajal:
don't call it loyal following .. loyal more sounds like loyal customers.. me being a management student and exams have just got over.. got dc sowwie..

Admin:
ok... u want me to repeat my question?

Kajal:
what keeps pink orchid smile in her sorrows is a simple question.. pink orchid is a very simple girl and its very easy to make her smile. sometimes she smiles for herself sometimes for others..
even when she's down and under.. but yes sometimes the sadness overshadows her smiles
and she needs to get hugged to get back to a smile again.. :)

Admin:
very good. now v know how to make u smile if v ever let u get overshadowed by sorrow...

Kajal:
:D

Admin:
would u do something that makes u cry, just to make sure some one else smiles?

Kajal:
oh yes!

Admin:
why? surely ur smile matters to u too?!

Kajal:
anything for the smile of people who mean something to me.. it does but then that's with me.. there are some smiles in this world which mean more than mine..

Admin:
interesting... well put. what would u say is more painful... never falling in love or getting heartbroken after falling in love?

Kajal:
both are pains of different kinds. one is the pain of not knowing..what lies ahead.. the next one is not expecting or believing what lies ahead..

Admin:
have u experienced one or both of the pains?or none?

Kajal:
i have experienced both the pains.. :) i also blame the first pain at times for the second pain..

Admin:
would u prefer being a small fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond?

Kajal:
i'd prefer being a big fish in a small pond.. but that pond should have other big fishes too to to make me wanna grow..and small fishes who could look upto me and grow , a big pond would just mean a lot of strangers.. a lot of unknown hurt.. a space out of my comfort zone..

Admin:
hmm... good logic. well said. but surely as u grow,u will need to go out of ur comfort zone sooner or later. cant expect comfort always, what will u do then?

Kajal:
ah I know.. I am good in compromises too but if given a choice i'd prefer my comfort zone..
you gave me a choice so i spoke my mind..

Admin:
so I did. interviews shd be abt speaking ur mind.

Kajal:
i agreee..

Admin:
lounge has so many members... and new people are wanting to join too. deleting inactive members can't be a solution always. what would u suggest as a solution?

Kajal:
I think it would work for a long time..looking the proportion of total members and active members.. we could turn writers' lounge into a website or something where there is not limit on number of authors or open a new WL with this one going.. depending on thre number of active members..

Admin:
interesting solution... Admins will consider that option on the day when such a problem arises. :) thank u. who would u say is similar to u in bloggin style from WL... i mean writing similar kind of posts...

Kajal:
sorry got DC..

Admin:
WB. do u want the question repeated?

Kajal:
yeah..

Admin:
who would u say is similar to u in bloggin style from WL... i mean writing similar kind of posts...

Kajal:
i guess no one is... for the simple fact that i dont write for excelllence.. and everyone else in wl does.. i just to write to express.. and that is all..

Admin:
i see. that is good to know. because knowledge has no highest levels. everyone is learning!
not everyone writes for excellence at lounge... i am certain there are certain people who write to express too... :)

Kajal:
yeah may be. but I have never compared anyone with myself.

Admin:
u there? ur net needs repair i feel....

Kajal:
the electricity is playing games.. i just wanted to say that no one is like me in WL coz their blogging style is much much better than me.. one reason again I differentiate myself from others..i write fiction rarely. so its mostly me in 99% of my writes.. that's why..

Admin:
so the pain in ur "dark" writes, that is true?
u have lived that pain that inspires u so much?

Kajal: i have i guess.

Admin:
very sadly beautiful. would u say the pain has brought u down, or boosted u up?

Kajal:
it has made me what I am today.. it sure has boosted me up..

Admin:
very good. other than Leo, who was the RHYME GOD award given to?

Kajal:
i don't really reply.. oops i don't really remember i think Prats was again.

Admin:
it was Mona

Kajal:
oh I am sorry I have not read Mona's work much so I couldn't remember.. sorry.. i am sure she deserves the award!

Admin:
i see... there are these various MeMe blogs or Prompt blogs in bloggerville. do u think these help u to write better?

Kajal:
i don't think they help us better.. as in they can't help me better.

Admin:
ur brother has a blog based for prompts... does that mean u don't approve of him using it to write poems?

Kajal:
it may be good for him..because he can write on prompts.. but to me prompts dont make much sense because it again brings you out of your comfort zone.. writing on prompts once in a while is alright for me too... but not always.. that's the reason why i dont attempt various poetic styles..
because i am not writing to become a writer or a poetess.. i am writing to express. so it could be hurt that prompts me one day or another emotion that prompts me the other day.. 'mere words' cannot make me write..

Admin:
doesn't he try to get u to attempt a certain style. surely with him around, u can try to write expressively in a certain style! :)

Kajal:
style makes me feel chained.. i really don't relate much to writing on rules.. i mean it sure is fun.. i enjoyed fib and counting syllables and all that.. but trust me my favorite poems of mine are the ones which i have written in one go.. without editing a word..

Admin:
i see... glad ur poems are from ur style... and its a delight reading them miss. u r the 6th member on MD Interviews... what do u feel is good about MDI? is there anything u felt was needed extra in the previous interviews?

Kajal:
no I don't think so, they were all perfect . each of them were tailor made according to the interviewee.. Asbah's was full grace with some tinge of humor. Prats was so herself.. Ste and Sandeep was full on entertainment.. I am the fifth one I guess.. and this one is also bringing out what I am..

Admin:
sorry. my mistake. u r fifth. and very detailed analysis. thank u :)

Kajal: :)

Admin:
do u think admin and lounge members interact well right now? or can it be bettered?

Kajal:
I think they interact well.. Admin email ID and shoutbox are being used properly for the same purpose. and the communication is two way and is effective..

Admin:
very good. now, we had a LOL contest at lounge a while back. were u a part of that? who (other than urself) do u think has the best chance of winning?

Kajal:
lol @ 'other than myself.' i wrote one or two pieces of microhumor.. but my humor could get cute but it didnt get humorous. the whole lounge knows who deserves to win without doubt

Admin:
the Lounge remains closed for the duration of such contests... don't u think it deprives other members who aren't strong in that area of posting for that duration? do u feel it is fair on them?

Kajal:
i know it does.. I for one was not able to contribute during microhumor.. or even when we were only supposed to write inspiration but I strongly feel it is good once in a while to explore facets which you are not comfortable in... reading and attempting.. and its only a matter of few days..

Admin:
very good. that is a dose of inspiration in itself. thank u :)

Kajal: :)

Admin:
now, shall we move on to rapid fire? choice questions, choose one and tell why! :)

Kajal:
hey rapid fire. hm.. interesting.. ok go on.. :)

Admin:
friendship or love? tick tick... its rapid fire.. no time to think... :P

Kajal:
phew first one is tough, friendship in love..

Admin:
reason? why not love in friendship? can't friends love?

Kajal:
no one should love just for the sake of it.. love is just the initial fire if you have had to keep the flame ablaze, you have to keep it alive with friendship and all that is expected out of a friend.

Admin:
why not love in friendship? surely friends love each other so very much.

Kajal:
they do .. you asked me to choose and at times the hopeless romantic in me takes over.. :)
its just a theoritical choice, practically no one can go on without friends.. all i wanted to say is if you find a true friend in the one you love that's bliss..

Admin:
mush factor mind eh? thats ok... :D ur explanations are quite nice.

Kajal:
thank you admin..

Admin:
next... stephen's poetry or leo's prose?

Kajal:
haahaaaahha you are gonna get me killed.. ok i'd say stephen's poetry because vinu is good in both prose and poetry and attempts it every once in a while but ste writes poetry very cutely with a tint of shyness. i-know-i-cant-write-but-i-am-still-writing-types.. that's why i'd chose ste's poetry.. his poems are so him..very rare but very much like himself..

Admin:
valid point! two near-perfect influences to guide u as u continue ur unknown quest eh?

Kajal:
not two .. only one... the only influence that'll make unknown quest go on
until my understanding of emotions of mine or others' around is alive.. :) and it will remain so..

Admin:
wonderful... my mistake again. apologies. :)

Kajal: :)

Admin:
next... sandeep+ste vs rest of lounge? in humor area.

Kajal:
oh.. sandeep+ste anyday..

Admin:
golu bhondu series against 2ps series?

Kajal:
hahhhaha i will obviously get partial here.. golu bhondu series.. who does one choose between readers' delight and her own dreams? i will choose my dreams..

Admin:
lol.. i see... kan or bhondu?

Kajal:
hahahaaha bhondu :)

Admin:
delhi or chennai? :D and why?

Kajal:
chennai... because this is a metro but not yet a metro.. that's why..

Admin:
own sister or virtual bro? :D :)

Kajal:
hahahaahaahaa virtual bro when I am fighting with my sister.. i want both.. who chooses between siblings.. my virtual bro is as real to me as my sis is.. :)

Admin:
nice... being interviewed by WL Admin or TPS e-paper?

Kajal:
oh WL admin ofcourse.. TPS e-paper is same 25 questions for all bloggers... here its one on one and more real and more personal.. :)

Admin:
wow. ok... nice! :) if Time to Rhyme not with Leo, then who? why?

Kajal:
God! I cant even imagine rhyming with anyone else.. :) after reading Sandeep's attempt at fib probably I could rhyme with him too.. but there cannot be any other time to rhyme with anyone else..

Admin:
i see... :) orkut or facebook? :)

Kajal:
ewwww none.. i have done enough orkutting in life and facebooking both dont make sense to me.
Admin:
but made to choose... which one would u choose? :D

Kajal:
i'd choose orkut.

Admin:
ok. :) blogging or chatting?

Kajal:
blogging and chatting about it.. :P

Admin:
hahaha... ok.. :D nocturnal owl or morning robin? which are u? :)

Kajal:
nocturnal owl.. so much like me. :) dumb and sleepless.. at night..

Admin:
D wow. me too :)

Kajal:
lol

Admin:
novels or textbooks? ps: none or both can be a valid answer for this too :D but justification is necessary :D

Kajal:
lol novels. i hate textbooks! they have nothing to do with how i am.. novels i understand.. coz its about people and their emotions..

Admin:
fiction or non fiction?

Kajal:
non-fiction is its something personal.. . not the non-fiction like how to win, how to become successful..
non-fiction like that puts me off.. then i'd say fiction..

Admin:
ok! :) steamy coffee in the rain, or icecream in the summer? :D

Kajal:
icecream in the rain.. but anything in the rain is fine.. :) i hate summers..

Admin:
what is at the end of a rainbow? :D

Kajal:
its the same thing that is there at the beginning.. it just a play of some lights and some reflection..in the sky after rains.. but for poets it symolises hope. and for me.. too.. :)

Admin:
hindi or tamil?

Kajal:
tamil.. :) i know hindi well. but i want to learn tamil and write poem in it. it is a very sweet language. and when spoken politely its so musical..

Admin:
nice... which is the most romantic language to u?

Kajal:
english :)

Admin:
other than that?

Kajal:
hindi..i dont understand romance in any other language.. if i knew tamil i'd have said tamil without doubt..

Admin:
would a talking dog be better than a talking parrot? :D

Kajal:
yeah, dog is most faithful animal and man's best friend.. if it could talk tooo good.. and a dog can be hugged.. and pampered.. i like them..

Admin:
nice... what u like better? junk food or homemade chaats? :)

Kajal:
junk food. but one cannot do without homemade foood..

Admin:
:) who is better to be with when u r sad... mom or friends?

Kajal:
friends.. coz when I am sad mom gets sad too.. but when the hurt is unbearable i hug her and cry.. and i feel so much better lying in her lap or just hugging her. or sitting in her lap or talking like a kid with her or pulling her cheeks.. i feel better.

Admin:
ok. time for part 3. and final part of long awaited interview... :) are u ready?

Kajal:
:) all set..

Admin:
right. rapid fire continues... Leo or Vinu?

Kajal:
Vinu.. :D Leo he is for the world.. for me he's vinu or Bhaaaaaaaaii :P

Admin:
If Rashi and Asbah wanted to start a series and asked you to name it, what kind of series would they start and what name would u suggest? :)

Kajal:
it will be a beautiful combination of poetry and prose.. My faovorite topic is mush but trust me when they'd do it.. it will be close to reality yet all full of dreams.. It will be a readers' delight!

Admin:
waiting for such a series then! :D hope it comes out soon... next... Romance or Love?

Kajal:
Love.. :) romance gets to be a part of it sooner or later.. at one point of time both of them become inseparable.. but if i'd to choose.. it'd be love..

Admin:
good choice... if you were stranded on an island with a guy, what 3 things would u want with u and why? :P

Kajal:
lol.. i'd need a tape, so that I can shut him up when he talks all non-sense.. i'd take music and turn the volume loud when he doesn't listen to me.. and I'd take a lot of food to it. coz he won't be cookin i am sure..:P

Admin:
wonderful... :) i hope whichever guy ends up stranded gets sensible. u seem to be very dangerous gal :)

Kajal:
lol.. yeah

Admin:
what is the most boring series on the WL...? quizzes can be included too.

Kajal:
chirag is gonna kill me.. the cricket quiz.. but I've told him I am not interested in sports and he is friend and he understands.. :)

Admin:
ok. who designs badges for the contest winners in WL...? :)

Kajal:
I think either Ste or Riversoul (Sid)

Admin:
actually, they both do. :D

Kajal:
yeah as in .. some are made by Ste and some by Sid..

Admin:
good. next... Master/Mistress of Dark Poetry? who's ur pick..

Kajal:
oh.. Master is Mav without doubt.. In girls who writes dark.. umm... I think tweety(shwetha) attempted some.. I really don't know or if I am ignorant... I don't see much of dark poetry coming from female writers at lounge..

Admin:
Thats nice... What about reply poetry...? It is seen a lot on lounge. You seem to be the best at it...
Kajal:
hahahahha I just try.. Mistress is Prats :)and Master is Vinu.. and Mav also writes once in a while and wonderfully so..

Admin:
Ok. Next... Acrostic poetry or Fib poetry... to read which is better?

Kajal:
i like fib more.. lol.. just coz I have tried it a lot.. :) acrostic is good too..but I like fib...more chances of lines going intense and deep in fib..

Admin:
best lesson so far in poetry at lounge?

Kajal:
hehehee fib fib fib.. it gave birth to a series with 25 poems and so many writers contributing to it..

Admin:
top five poets / poetesses in lounge... in an order... other than urself i mean. :)

Kajal:
hhaahaaha dont worry i'd never include myself in the top 5 :) Rash, Asbah, Tweety, Ms R (she is my recent favorite) and Insi in no particular order..

Admin:
and Poets...?

Kajal:
Vinu, Mav, Hashan, Andy and not to forget the Lover Adi..... :)

Admin:
both.. poets and poetesses together... rank 1 to 5.

Kajal:
ok take them in that order.. only thing is Asbah would rank first in anything.. she is just too good! she writes less these days but masterpieces one after another..

Admin:
combined ranking I meant. 1 to 5... not separating guys and gals. answer is must.

Kajal:
combined ranking? like how example?

Admin:
what example? u separated top 5 poetesses and top 5 poets of lounge and told.. i want ur combined top 5 in order of first to fifth :)

Kajal:
oh Vinu and Rash - 1 oops I mean Vinu and Asbah - 1
Mav and Rash - 2
oops I forgot Prats :(
Prats and Hashan - 3
Ms. R and Andy - 4 (very classy they are... )
Adi and Insi - 5 (they are not very active these days .. I love their work)

Admin:
thank u for the rankings :) who'd u give the "best newcomer to lounge award" considering new members joined this month?

Kajal:
oh the new members this month , I'd say Ms R in girls and Pulkit in guys both of made an awesome entry and made their presence felt.

Admin:
good choices... if you were made to delete one of your blogs. ... which would u delete and why?
and u have to choose... its a hypothetical question.. :)

Kajal:
lol it is so difficult.. but then I guess I'd do away with mush factor looking at the amount of mush prevailing in 'an unknown quest' off late. i like the way 'mush factor' looks so it'll stay forever though..

Admin:
ok.. how did you come to rhyme so well in ur poems? natural ability nurtured with consistent writing?

Kajal:
Vinu's pointing out on one of my poems that I should rhyme sometimes.. :) and when I tried I liked it.. and then there was no looking back.. i rhyme mostly.. i meant the rhyming lines.. :)
I have been writing poems since ages now and I dont write unless I feel those emotions intensely.. so may be that's why they turn out that way.

Admin:
how did u come to meet Vinu? ur friendship is quite the strong one now... a blog together.. siblings virtually... immediate liking to each others blogs?

Kajal:
I was following I Rhyme Without Reason from so long.. and then we met through WL..
and he started a few replies to my work..and then there was no looking back.. he is one of the most wonderful people I know..

Admin:
ah... WL makes a lot of friendships... he must be delighted to have met u at WL...

Kajal:
:) i am sure he is.. :P

Admin:
have u met any of ur blog pals?

Kajal:
ah none.. but i guess I will meet them soon.. :) some of them..atleast.. i hope..

Admin:
thats a shame... who'd u want to meet first?

Kajal:
lol.. its no shame.. sometimes it doesn't matter how far one is and meeting ain't that imp and sometimes situations don't permit i'd like to meet asbah and sandeep first.. :)

Admin:
any reasons for those two?

Kajal:
yeah Asbah is the most solved person I have ever met.. she is so mature and I look upto her.. she is my favorite :) and Sandeep because he is my friend philosopher and guide.. :) then ofcourse i'd like to meet Vinu and Sawan and then a lot of other favorite people of mine..

Admin:
its been a long interview... shall we wind up with the Lounge Members Questions?

Kajal:
:) yeah your wish is my command :)

Admin:
if u'd want to continue... i have no issues... but i am sure ur pals will kill me.. for taking u away from chatting so long.. u r very popular after all.

Kajal:
lol its not like that.. we can;t have a very long interview making readers sleep half way through..:)

Admin:
true. let us proceed...

Kajal: yup..

Admin:
Rashi asks "how much of bhondu is true "

Kajal:
bhondu is 100% true and golu is my dream that I am living.. nothing less
:)

Admin:
Arjun asks " which state of being is more inspiring for better poetry?? When in Love or when deprived of
love..??"

Kajal:
I think both .. but deprived of love brings intense poetry.. when in love your poems make one go 'awweeee' but when deprived of it your poems bring in a million thoughts to the reader.. i totally believe in the fact that there are more heartbreaks than successful love stories around us.. and poem has more impact when the reader feels it his own thoughts.. which happens more in case of sad ones..

Admin:
interesting view point! :) thank u. Neha asks "Presume life brings you to a situation where you have to choose between giving up your love or losing a friend, what would you do? Justify your answer. "

Kajal:
I hope I never come into such a situation again.. and instance like these have happened in the past too and I have never been able to choose. both are a major part of us.. how do you choose between your eyes..both are imp for one to see..

Admin:
wow. what comparison... ! :) super. Maverick asks "How do you handle the large amount of your followers and manage to keep them happy?"

Kajal:
oops.. there is nothing like handling or managing.. i am not running a factory.. :) i just write my heart and may be they like what they read.. and all of them mean a lot to me.. and that's about it.. that's what keeps the orchid going..

Admin:
all read ur works... but do all follow ur heart? the depth of what is said...?

Kajal:
all my readers are bloggers themselves.. and they have a very good understanding of emotions..
they understand my work well..

Admin:
ok. understood. :) Anurag asks "How come she writes so much..and how did she manage to get so popular in such a short time "

Kajal:
lol.. i write a lot.. because I think a lot.. and popular is not the right word.. loved is.. i am loved because my readers relate to me in a way or the other.. because I write about us.. we .. our emotions.. our life in simple words.. at the end of the day every human being is sensitive.. some show some do not..

Admin:
yes. u r one of the loved members of lounge alright. glad that u r aboard. :) Jack asks "if she wd hv to write a book on soemthing..wat wd dat she write on..n why"

Kajal:
oh.. book is something too huge for me..! :) but no guesses if ever i write a book it will be no different than how my blog is.. it will be about my unknown quest and my companions in this journey of life..

Admin:
wow. a bestseller soon on the cards then! :)

Kajal:
hhahhhahaha good joke.. :P

Admin:
Aarthi asks "as a moderator of the lounge, what do you feel is going to be the future of the lounge?? any predictions?? Or any dreams...??"

Kajal:
the lounge is at its best now.. contests. creativity. series.. poems.. prose. first attempts.. quizzes..reviews... anything that one can think of.. the lounge gives a good platform to all the newcomers. and i am sure with new talent coming in WL will keep moving further and will keep being a remarkable name in blogsville..

Admin:
interesting... good to have u as a moderator... :)

Kajal:
:)

Admin:
Asbah asks "what would you name ur kids?"

Kajal:
awweeeeeeeeeeeee :) i've not thought of it.. as yet.. :) it'll definitely be something really cute with a nice ring to it.. :)

Admin:
still some idea u must b having.. readers are curious to know. :)

Kajal:
hahhahhahah as of now I can just think of 'pari' :) 'nihaal' hahhaha i dont know.. its a funny question.. :)

Admin:
Asbah asks "what is ur favourite piece of urself".

Kajal:
favorite poem?

Admin:
as in a poem or story that you have written :) yes.

Kajal:
my favorite is 'dont ask any questions' in english and 'jaadugar' in hindi. and fiction ofcourse is golu bhondu. :)

Admin:
nice! :) Charu asks "She writes a variety of things..Poetry-English and hindi..Fiction.. If she has to choose her favourite out of all..what it would be..or what does she thinks she is best at..?"

Kajal:
wow! I started writing hindi poems first. and then english came in.. its very recent that I am liking my comfort with english poems too.. and the way its been accepted i'd go with english poems.. but trust me everything i write has a huge place in my heart. :)

Admin:
Stephen asks "Well people often say ....virtual friends dnt knw each other. ..they communicate with the help of an email id thru chat services and n/w sites.....whats ur take on this concept of virtual friends..heard that ur association with virtual world is higher than tht of real world... .is that true....if its true how does your blog plays and important role in the same....can virtuality converted into reality .. ..i mean friendship....if so how?and seriously...I envy you for few reasons....1)ur reason for 120+ followers 2) 80 + comments in each post3)popularity in blogworld......hw do u manage all this...pls give us few tips.....and hows ur life as admin of WL...how do u manage time for TPO blog,WL and studies...Am I asking too much?"

Kajal:
itne saare questions! :D
ok ..
stibu is my first friend in the blogworld..
he means a lot to me..
i manage time well because i study less and i blog more.. :P
my life as an admin is nice because I have a strong attachment with WL..
i really don't think popular is the word.. i'd just say some bloggers read me they liked what i read and soon we became friends.. so that's the reason behind TPO being loved..
my virtual friends are as special to me as my real ones.. and when I make a friend i give it my all... for me there is no difference between a real or a virtual friend.
a friend is a friend!
phew!
i guess that answers all the questions..
:)

Admin:
Prats asks " What is your mantra for being happy with yourself".

Kajal:
it is going and standing in the balcony with a cup of cold coffee and allowing cold breeze swish through my hair and touch my face.. trust me no matter in what state of mind i am this brings a smile. i like my company. :)

Admin:
Prats and Leo ask "what would you say has been the most memorable and proudest moment for you in blogging and why?"

Kajal:
it might sound cliched but they day i got my first follower for pink orchid.. i felt so proud and I had a big smile the whole day :)

Admin:
most memorable also is the same? :)

Kajal:
awweeee most memorable is my co-write of golu bhondu with Sandeep it holds a very special place.. :)

Admin:
oh wonderful. :) that does it for ur interview Kajal :) thank u so much, for ur time. and patience...:)

Kajal:
:) thank you so much! it was wonderful talking my heart out. god bless! :)

Admin:
God bless you too.
