If you had to describe god to a child?
Is god a man or a woman?
If man: Father; If woman: Mother
What would your first words to god be if he/she appeared in front of you?
If there was a dare/challenge you would like to give god what would it be?
Make me wise just like you
If you had the power to grant one gift to god, what would it be?
An automated answering machine which can sense and answer FAQs of human around the globe. God, take a break at least like this.
Your most godly encounter?
Feeling at peace with no prayers in mind even when the bag was filled with a long list.
What if god were an alien?
Take a selfie with him and challenge NASA that I did see an alien.
Funniest encounter in a place of worship?
Once I saw few dogs bending and doing namsakarams to a particular spiritual person in a temple and felt that he was really a saint and bowed to him with due respect till one fine day saw yet another dog doing the same namaskaram in front of a movie poster. It was the usual stretch which they do soon after a long nap. Though only that day I realised my innocence.
A quirky habit that you have in terms of being spiritual or a God believer?
I don’t have any.
What do you think will offend god?
Not taking any self efforts and not accepting the given opportunities no matter how small that could be.
