I’m Saksham, currently 16 and studying in 11th class.
I belong to the city of kebabs… Eh? Kebabs?! Seriously?! Why would someone title a town, ‘City of Kebabs’?!
Eccentric it may seem, but Lucknow is actually pretty famous for its food and cuisine. Take Tunday Kebab for instance, who hasn’t heard of it?! (Well, if you haven’t, then consider this, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan especially came here to have the kebabs.. ) Then we have the chaat, the Lucknavi Biryani and the sweet.
So, I guess, I don’t need to emphasise anymore on the fact that I’m a BIG foodie.
Moving on; one can call me creatively curious. And I love learning new stuff! Aaand I’m fascinated by topics such as astrophysics, neuroscience, psychology, astro-biology, mythology, web-designing and world history. (They don’t seem to be even remotely related, but I love learning about all this stuff.. *learning is fascinating; studying is boring* 😉
I love travelling! My dream goal is a one year backpacking vacation in Europe. *gives me the chills, sure it does*
And probably my most productive hobby is photography (because the rest include sleeping, doing nothing, and staring into the oblivion)
I’m a bookworm. And a music-addict, with the general tinge of being a movie buff.
Artists that frequent my Most-Played list include: Switchfoot, Fall Out Boy, Poets Of The Fall, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey ❤️, Coldplay, Passenger, Arctic Monkeys, OneRepublic, Imagine Dragons, 30 Seconds To Mars, American Authors, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Enrique Iglesias (the old one) *sigh*, Bastille, Bryan Adams, George Micheal, The Beatles, Queen, U2, The Doors, Journey…and the list goes on and on and on … 😉 And, and, and I love listening to some classic Hindi Songs as well (the oldie-goldie type…yeah)
Here’s the thing. When friends inquire about my favourite movie,
What I usually say : Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara followed by Almost Famous and something something.
Their Reaction : Dude! Are you serious?! The lack of your ability to make good choices disturbs me…
Well, they expect me to name all those action and fantasy movies enjoyed watching together. But to be honest, I prefer contemporary movies to fiction. Though I’m a geek at heart, honest movies beautifully based on something realistic can blow my mind more than any sci-fi movie.. And also I’m a British TV-addict for sure! *Sherlock and Doctor Who* *sweats* *goes and puts on his bow-tie and hat*
I adore dogs! I play badminton and tennis, and sometimes football, although I love watching almost all the sports. I particularly love curling!! And I hope to play it one day…
I love quizzing, especially IT quizzing, debating, though I’m not that good at extempore, and writing.
I’m a round peg in the square hole. A religious fan of almost everyone who has challenged the society, gone out of his comfort zone, worked hard and done something different. I wish to be an entrepreneur, for I believe I’m one of those Crazy Ones! 😀 But whatever happens, I want to do something adventurous with my life. Something so unconventional and wondrous that it leaves me with no regrets in the end.
So, I guess that was it… Me in a series of 1s and 0s. Now, I just hope that you enjoy reading this blog, as much as I love writing it! 🙂
