Interview from United Kingdom - Bikramjit Mann

There aren't many who don't know about Bikramjit among Indian bloggers or so it seems. Bikramjit shares his raves and rants in his blog: Me and My Random Thoughts Two things you will notice right away when you visit his virtual space: first is his love for Punjab and next his love for his friends.

Be it a musical video or pictures or his random thoughts, he just bubbles with words, even on his 'Wordless Wednesdays' series... :) I often wonder how it would be to meet him in person. The closest we can get to him for now is this virtual interview - unless our frequent flyer "A" Simple Blogger decides to meet him up on his next trip to United Kingdom OR Bikramjit himself decides to surprise one of us in the US or in India!

Ladies and Gentlemen! Let's welcome the one and only Bikramjit! Here's a quote from my favorite of his posts - where he reflects on his best friend who is no more:

"Anup wherever you are I love you my friend, and I miss you.. there is a lot of me that was made because of you and I am very thankful to you for that. I am a better person because of you Anup... Everyone deserves a good friend in their life, and you were the BEST!"

? Can you tell us a little about yourself? Please include where you are from.
! I was born in a small village in Punjab, on a bright shiny day in November. My father was a Govt employee based in Chandigarh. My schooling has been from YPS Patiala, Punjab. It was, in those days, one of the best schools in India. Being in hostel from an early age made me quite independent, though I tend to get homesick a lot. My higher education has been from Chandigarh.

... These days I am settled in UK, full time job and Life is running full steam ahead... I do a lot of things depending on the weather here in UK. If it’s sunny I go for long walks along the countryside, climb some hills and when the weather is not so good, which is often here, my play station is my companion and killing all the enemy men, bombing the enemy hideouts on Call of duty is the current passion.

? How did you first get involved in blogging?
! It was more of me being pushed into it by someone I loved. I use to write a diary or make notes of events etc. When they suggested I write on a blog, for a change I agreed to them and started writing. Slowly I got used to the idea and over period, met so many fellow bloggers, such good human beings with heart of gold that blogging now is fun. That’s how it started for me and I am thankful to the one who showed me the way...

? What do you do when you aren’t blogging?
! WORKING that takes a lot of my time... Some say I am a workaholic but I say I keep myself busy. I love gardening, summer weekends, getting the garden sorted... Early mornings go into my trying to shed the TONS OF FAT I got on me which I never seem to get rid of... I remember someone told me that it takes running a third of a mile to shed the calories in a packet of crisp, I see it the other way round I run a third of a mile so I can go and Eat that Packet of CRISP.

? How did you come up with the name for your blog?
! I am very random person and I believe I do get Random thoughts... Which may not have any meaning for anyone but to me they are important. I tend to jot down what comes to mind, and since this is my blog and all that I say on it concerns ME and no one else *Any Any references to any Person living, dead, or reincarnated is purely coincidental. No similarity to actual persons or predators, living or dead, is intended or should be inferred, No living organisms are/were harmed in writing and they do not bear any resemblance to them.*** Hence the title ME AND MY Random thoughts... Random because I might be talking of some social stigma one day and the next day I might have a joke put up... That’s how random the thoughts are ... and so is my blog.

? What is your favorite post that you have written? What makes it special?
! Well all the posts are favourites, and I keep refreshing the page to see how many have read it and since these are all random and MY thoughts they are all favourite to me.

? Any regrets about any of your posts?
! None Whatsoever...

? Tell us a joke please.
! Well this is not a joke, I will tell you about CALORIES... do you know what they are? Well CALORIES are little "bleep" that get into your wardrobe at night and SEW your clothes tighter while you are asleep.

MY WARDROBE IS INFESTED WITH THESE LITTLE ____ AHhhhhhhhh

? What can readers expect in your blog? What is it about?
! Well the readers, first of all THANK YOU all for reading and spending your precious time on my blog, What they can expect is ANYTHING J I write what I think , what’s going on in my mind or sometimes in my life. You may not agree with me, I have no qualms about it. I don’t expect anyone to accept what I write.
 
? Is there anything else you want to share?
! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you NRIGIRL for giving me this opportunity and thinking of me to be interviewed. I feel privileged to appear on your blog. I want to thank again every person who comes to my blog, Please do leave your feedback Good bad ugly , whatever it is It will help me grow into a better person.

Lastly Thank you all and everyone for being my friends out there in cyber world, I have made some lovely friends a few are family now... God bless you all and if at anytime I have written anything that hurt you in any way... I would like to apologise for it all. Thank you..

? Now, if you have a question for me (NRIGirl) this is your chance to ask.
! Let me be cheeky and ask Why you chose my blog to be interviewed... Ha ha ha you did not expect this I guess I am trying to promote my blog ha ha ha ha!

Thank you Bikramjit for being part of this series. I hope you too are enjoying all the interviews from fellow bloggers.

To answer your question, my idea was to feature all bloggers I frequent or follow. Of course your random thoughts is one of my favorites!

1st of all i must agree to you NRI that "There aren't many who don't know about Bikramjit among Indian bloggers"....
and i really feel happy to know little more about him here...
BTW Bikram saheb looking very handsome in the foto here....

Jyothi said...

Wow! What a photo ji! A very lively blog he has! I think he gets more comments in one post than I got in my entire blog put together! :D

Balachandran V said...

Wow,Bikram, you look like the Nawab of Patiala! :)

Great Blog and happy to meet you!

A said...

Oye Bik , good picture.

I already knew most of what you told but it is always good to know more :)))

You are a popular blogger. Bik won several blogging awards but because he is modest he did not mention here.

sm said...

raji said...

Bikramjit said...

Indian Home Maker said...

That's a nice photo and a very interesting interview. And now I know something new about what calories do to people's clothes!

Tomz said...

I like Bikramjit in person and a blogger as well. he is very prolific writer and very keen on maintaining friendships. he deserves recognition as a writer and deserves to be featured on NRI girl's blog.

Always Happy said...

NRIGirl, thank you so much for doing this.

Bikram, It was nice to read your interview.

Harman said...

nice..picha...Good one..
As blogger..you are simple...strong in expression and yet" Dunn Mess "kinda atitude..which I like...
one of the biggest qualities in your writings are...
"you write whatever you like ...and rest is upto the readers to react"..not making anybody happy..or fake ideas or judgments!
Being a Punjabi and keeping up the flag..true to every word is another plus point of your blog!
The best part...leg pulling :)in comments...is something we look forward if bikram is there...on your blog..lol
Tc buddy and enjoy!

Vaish said...

Coming here from Bik's Blog...It's nice to know much about my fellow blogger..
Haha..bik,,nice to know about Calories...

Rachna said...

Very nice interview. Very true that you love Punjab and your friends. I can see your sentiments coming right through your posts. And the Calories joke was nice :). How about some Santa Banta jokes in one blog post? :)

Shobha said...

Nice interview...getting to know more and more about you and your popularity.
Liked the CALORIES part...

Punam said...

@Raji: He is obviously not in his 50's. So don't believe that crap.

@NRIGirl: I am sure half of the blogosphere is DYING to meet him in person.. he has got soo many fans. He only has to put an emotional post and his comments section would probably take two hours to read, apart from his main post.

@Jyoti: I agree with you.. make that your blog and my blog comments added together.. we still ca not match his popularity.

@Bikram: Nice interview, honest answers. And great pic too. "Any Any references to any Person living, dead, or reincarnated is purely coincidental. No similarity to actual persons or predators, living or dead, is intended or should be inferred, No living organisms are/were harmed in writing and they do not bear any resemblance to them." - had me laughing in splits. Hilariouss!!!
