Seven Tag

I always have this problem that noone seems to tag me. There are all these innumerable memes floating around the Net: bloggers are being tagged left, right and center. Except that it is never me.

Why does noone tag the Greatbong? Doesn’t anybody want to know what my idea of a perfect woman is ? Well then what about my idea of a perfect man (and no it’s not Mithun-da)? There is also no interest in my favorite color (which incidentally is “yellow”) or the 10 things that want to make me go “Ooh”.

So a while ago, on Urmea‘s blog I made a comment griping about this fact: seeing that Urmea had tagged two of her friends but not me.

As a result of my arm-twisting, I got tagged. And for some reason or the other, the tag got buried. A few days ago, I went to Rimi’s blog and repeated my “noone tags me” routine. Again a similar tag was thrown my way.

So to conclude this unfinished business and get on with my life.

Seven things I plan on doing:

1. Lose weight

2. Find out exactly what Amar Singh said to Bipasa Basu and Jaya Prada.

3. Cruise down the Nile.

4. Write a book that people will pay to read (immediate family does not count)

5. Get my story idea made into a Hindi film (the title of the movie is “Bhay” and the tag line is: Smell the Fear)

6. Do the moonwalk.

7. Make a difference.

Seven things I cannot do:

1. Run a marathon.

2. Watch any Hindi serial.

3. Tolerate romantic movies.

4. Exercise regularly (or at all).

5. Make small conversation.

6. Be detached.

7. Stop dreaming.

Seven things I say a lot:

1. Salaaaaa…..(no translation needed).

2. Aar Paari Na (Cannot take it any more).

3. Bawali naki (Is there no law?).

4. Haramjada Kiran More (no translation needed).

5. Too much…..

6. Ki re……………(what’s up).

7. Hullat (awesome).

Seven things I miss:

1. Being in the 20s.

2. Having no responsibilities.

3. The independence of being single.

4. Being thin.

5. Bunking classes and playing cricket.

6. Durga Pujo.

7. Family weddings.

In protest for having to be asked to be tagged, I tag no-one. How petulant of me !

  1. 1st comment..perverse joy :))

  2. 2nd comment…and a tag as well…dunno how exactly to do it…but chk out and do the same…

  3. 7. Make a difference.

    No fair – covers too much ground. One can argue all your previous six plans will lead to #7 πŸ™‚

    3. The independence of being single.

    Is your wife reading this πŸ˜‰

    5. Bunking classes and playing cricket.

    When/Where in that directionally named school did you get to play cricket ?

    6. Durga Pujo.

    Ditto. SIGH ! 😦

  4. @c.b: The small things of life…

    @Shils: Thanks….I actually have been tagged twice before when my blog was in its infancy: one on books (like yours) and one on words. It is only now that people show a marked reticence to tag me.


    7. Eggjacktly.

    3. Yes she is πŸ™‚

    5. This was not school—this is Jadavpur University I am referring to. School—oh boy. No bunking there.

    6. 😦 indeed.

  5. Forget the tags thingie, Bong Boss!
    I was expecting you to make a post on Abu Salem’s revelation that our favorite actress Manisha Koirala had paid him to plug her secretary. Can I still expect one, pleeeeeeeeeeej?! πŸ™‚

    BTW, I haven’t been tagged yet either (%&$^#@!)…. and I must say we share the following (do-able) dreams,

    1. Cruise down the Nile. (Chomping on fried Catfish nuggets and sea-food pilavs of Port Said cusinie)
    2. Get my story idea made into a Hindi film (Note: I would insist on being the hero if they ever make a Bhojpuri remake! Out there, the women look like women should… and not like aneroxic models or Main Bhi Madonnas.)


  6. I would be glad to tag you! πŸ˜›

    Let me write the next post on my blog.

    Chances are, you will be invariably tagged on most of the posts for all reasons including SEO.

    Here is the blog:

    Slapdash Contemplations

    Stay Tuned!

  7. 7th Comment….Lucky Me.

    Cant belive it. Greatbong not being tagged !!!

  8. You could always “steal” a tag from sites.. do the tag regardless of tagging πŸ™‚
    Works for me πŸ™‚
    Feel free to steal this one.
    If the concept is not agreeable – consider yourself tagged πŸ˜€

    @GB: You donÒ€ℒt like romantic movies? You have broken my heart. But seriously, if you donÒ€ℒt like romantic movies then I can safely assume that you havenÒ€ℒt or donÒ€ℒt read romantic novels. Then how do you manage to be quite sensitive to your wife? Γ’β‚¬β€œ I get that impression from reading your posts and I remember that in one of my previous comments I commended your sensitivity (something you wrote about what it actually means when your wife calls you the best husband…).

  10. Abhey Chootiyaa, lauda kaa baal, Tu mujhe Haaram saada bholega, you gaandu Begali. I have fixed one Bong already. I will fix you too

  11. @The Wanderer: I seriously want to make a Hindi movie…really I do. A high budget one with concept FX.

    @Mukul: Too much of a good thing…

    @Ashit: Neither could I.

    @SEV: No stealing. And no begging from me. After all izzat ka sawal hain.

    @yourfan: Aha. You do not need to read romantic novels/books to be romantic. Or to be sensitive. On the other hand, I feel reading too much of them gives you certain bookish ideas of what romance is—-ruins the spontaneity.

    @Kiran More: Likewise.

  12. Abey Kiran More

    Teri to.. Abey joker. Greatbong kya tere ko Javed Miandad lag raha hai kya ki uske samane koodi mar raha hai?
    And which Bong you fixed? You couldn’t even fix your own inclusion in team, how you could fix other bong?

  13. Tag Tag: 10 (or more ) reasons why mithunda should be awarded 2007’s “oscar for lifetime achievement”. Mithunda commands ” oyeeeeee greatbong tag bhar, abeeeeeeee saaalaaaaaaa, apun ko lunga uthake disco karna hai red carpet pe aagle saal”

  14. Well, Arnabda… I’m sure I sound like the biggest fool on earth on 1st April… but I’m new to blogging and blog reading, and I don’t understand what tagging means :p
    A brief search on the big G didn’t make things any better… 😦

  15. 5. This was not schoolÒ€”this is Jadavpur University I am referring to. SchoolÒ€”oh boy. No bunking there.

    Ah…JU – so you mean where you bunked cricket to attend a few classes ? πŸ™‚

  16. Hmmm, duly noted πŸ™‚ Bochhor doshek pore hullaat katha ta shunlam/porlam!!

  17. Ah, much gratified. But is there NO decency left in the world?!!! *shakes fist at the sky* Couldn’t you guys wait till either Urmi or I had commented, seeing as us , and not eeou, were mentioned in the Great’s post? Ki jelus-type public re baba! πŸ˜›

  18. i tag u verbally all the time
    amar singh …tell me more!and tell me how reasonably intelligent people like bachchans tolerate a scum bag like him
    ur spam catches my many exclamations but not ‘some comments’
    i will definitely pay to read ur book and pay in black to see ur movie esp bcos of tag line.

  19. No wonder Manisha got her secretary bumped off. After all he landed her that plum role in “Jaani Dushman”.

  20. Awwww πŸ™‚ – we share the same predicament. I tag myself these days LOL!

    good list – a year ago, many points of this list would have been there in my list too hehe!



  21. I had tagged you long long ago ….

  22. hahahaha….boss you’ve been tagged by a lots of people… that you don’t even know …i’m sure about the fan following

  23. try out .. its a pretty cool tagging site .. especially for this kind of stuff πŸ™‚

  24. No one tags me also, not like I care, but yes, no one does.

    MoonWalk? The only thin’ which comes to my mind is MoonRock, one of my fav pastries…

    Missin’ well I miss bein’ that nitty witty troublesome 7yr old kid, yes.

  25. Couldn’t print the link last tiime (tried html) so here it is once more:

    Tag, Grumpy!

  26. Me again. In your case, make that 10 Things You Will Have Done by 40…

  27. And the funniest thing is no one reads my blog, but there’s always some one tagging me!! Weird or wot? Will pass it on to you Arnab, next time, pucca promise:P

  28. Your concluding line was the best

  29. Smell the fear … LOL i can imagine what this could be !

  30. @Jhantu: My Mithunism post was about that only—as a matter of fact this lifetime achievement thing is too small for Prabhuji—every year some idiot or the other gets it.

    @Joy Forever: Tagging is like : 1) Write a post on a particular topic (say “My ideal woman”) 2) At the end say ” I Tag x, Y and Z”. 3) X, Y and Z are now supposed to write a post on the same topic.

    @Bongopondit: Excellently put.

    @Urmea: That means you havent been talking to the right people.

    @Rimi: Babaaaa

    @Varsha: Yes please…do read my book. And even before that do try to get a publisher for me. And that is an open request for all you readers.

    @Spyder Mann: No doubt.

    @Suyog: πŸ™‚

    @Nikhil: When you tag someone, you email that guy to tell him that you have tagged him. Kindly provide the link for the tag.

    @Mayank: It would help if my taggers emailed me, the tyagi, with the good news.

    @Anon: Weird.

    @Gates: You are The Gates and noone tags you ! Moonwalk is MJ’s patented dance move…

    @Bonatellis: I dunno…I just love yellow. Raveena’s yellow sari in “Tip tip barsa pani” may have something to do with it.

    @Sue: Seven things I plan on doing is seven things I plan on doing before 40.

    @Arunima: About me being petulant?

    @Kusum: First sign that your horror movie is not doing good is when people start laughing at your tag line: how about “the Fear is here”.

  31. Tune mujhe naakhoon ka mail kaha tha naa,
    Ab hum tujhe saande ka tel laga kar marenge

  32. Thanks Arnabda… I got your message! πŸ˜‰

  33. That reminds me I still have to clear some word tag you threw at me πŸ™‚ Some day I will do it.

  34. ROTFL what??? you meant that to be a horror tag line ! Arnab, i think the fear is actually here !!

    Hey BTW have you seen the new add for sugar free where if you don’t have the time other people can work out for you, if that really worked wouldn’t it be GREAT? I mean imagine nah all your blogging fans, take turns and go for jogging while you sit and make that HORROR heheheh (oops sorry, couldn’t help that) movie πŸ™‚ so now when your movie is finished and you are called upon to accept some award you will have turned slim and all courtesy all the bloggers who jogged for you πŸ™‚

    P.S: Please count me out, if this thing works you and I will be fighting for people who would run for us πŸ™‚ and its obvious whoz gonna win πŸ™‚

  35. but i think I tagged u long ago…but u never visited my blog so u weren’t aware of the fact of me tagging u…(tho i can’t remeber whether i have actually tagged u or not):p
