  5. MiM: Am honoured with the award- now i shall don the strict teacher hat and mark your test:

    21: finishing current film. marks: 0.5

    22: snob film insitute types love ghatak more than ray. so do i. but i love ray too. marks: 0.5

    24: i have to minus marks for your numbering by the way- but answer to question is bang on. (even on my wedding i wanted only kajal. my mom coaxed me into wearing lipstick. now i wear lipstick if i think my clothes are mismatched so no one notices:) .marks :1

    23:bang on. marks: 1

    24: fully wrong. shall explain later. marks:0

    25:bang on. marks:1

    26:sorry. marks: 0 ( but i do like filter coffee when i visit a kannada or tamil friend. no where else)

    27: actually most of the times i am depressed because i can not write. so i walk and take off…hills, beach, crowded bby trains, whereever
    marks: 1

    28: my blog name, yes. my real name-fragarance. marks: 1

    29: pretty correct. but the order begins with MiM because i am assured of a new post. the other two are lazy oafs. and there are many other bloggers too… marks: 1

    7out of 10 . ABR is honoured that you cracked my personality type 🙂

  6. sur: liberal was you.

    after having checked with the answers
    I myself would have settled for:

    21: 0

    22: 0

    24: 1 which has to be minused for wrong numbering : so make that 0

    23: 0.
    25: 1

    26: not the kaapi kind? 😦

    27: 0.5

    28: 0.5

    29: 1

    the score is only three on 10, strictly spking. i think the comment that my teachers wrote on my report card would fit:
    “can do better”

    sur: what? you didn’t ALREADY know that I love your blog? gah!
