Utbt tagged me in her post Facing My Fears. I had to

-List five of my fears.
-Link my post to the person who tagged me
-Link this post with a book.
-Tag five people.

I am going to keep it short since you very well know about my writing skills!

(1) Legs turn into Jelly when standing on top of a sky rise or any tall structure. But I still scale those heights and manage somehow.
(2) Children getting hurt in any way. I fear for them all the time.
(3) Eve-teasing. Even though I put a brave front and confront the offenders most of the time, still cannot avoid that twisted knot in my tummy.
(4) Losing a family member. Actually, the nagging fear in the pit of my stomach keeps warning me to be nice to all of them as long as they are here in this world. I should start listening to it. It is very tough though.
(5) Friends moving away(geographically) – Didn’t know it existed until it started happening.
Darkness, Being alone, Riots, unrest, violence, war…. wow, the list of my fears is endless. So let me stop here.
Linking this post to a book.. Hmm.. Brain! Start working! OK, Children getting hurt immediately brings the book, Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, to my mind.
I am tagging anyone who would like to take this up since I am not sure who all have taken up this tag so far!

p.s. utbt, you can put one of your fears to rest. I took up your tag!



  1. I can so understand the heights thing – enakku Amitabh Bachchan’a paathale bayam!

    YY: You crack me up! But enakku Amitabh Bachchan ennai thookinda thaan bayam! 😉

  3. Really? You have fears? Who would have thought?

    I thought and thought about my fears after Utbt tagged me and realized Im quite fearless!!!

    *goes away singing “enna dhaan nadakkum, nadakkattume….” *

    YY: Why did you think it took me this long to take up this tag. I think I am fearless too! So I had to dig really deep. Go read others fears and compare. Finally came up with these and a few more too.

  4. Relate to you on 2, 3 and 4. I feel (4) manifests itself acutely when you are far away from your loved ones. On (3), I have never felt that know in the stomach while in the US, but here in India it is a totally different story.
