11.Have toyed a lot with the idea of becoming a masked vigilante and clean up the criminal elements that abound the world-over! Alternatively, a career as an assassin!

If you can write a testimonial for me, what would you write?
Have met Kalyan about thrice, a nice and jovial person and as he claims a flirtatious nature and a great photographer :)

What’s the strangest talent you have?
I can whistle the complete audio-tracks of some of the most popular Illayaraja songs!

Do you have weird habits?
I have hair-cut every 20 days, I wish I could grow long hair but even a bit of hair on top of my ears, I get a nasty cold :(! So I have had the lawn-mower hair-cut since nursery-school!

If you knew the world was going to end tomorrow, what would you do in your last living hours?
Dash to someone special's house with a ruby-encrusted platinum ring and ask someone-special to marry me! I will tell her - 'Dearest, the world is going to end and when it ends I want to hold your hands and share a laugh with you!'

Have you ever felt jealous of friends or fellow competitors’ success and how did you suppress it?
We all get out just rewards, so not jealous of friends and colleagues, but jealous of cricketers who do not play properly and make millions in IPL-deals!

Have you ever been betrayed? If so, how did you douse the flames?
Let bygones be bygones! Nothing further - forge on as one would say in sales!

List down 5 music tracks which you would always listen to and would never get bored of.
Chehra hai ya chand khila hai - Saagar
I Wanna Hold Your Hand - The Beatles
Sundari kannal oru seidhi - Thalapathi
Zindagi kaisi yeh paheli bujhaye - Anand
Janani Janani - Thaie Moogambigai - Illayarja

If you are a guy, have you ever been got slapped by a girl? If you are a girl, have you ever slapped a boy?
By God's grace nothing so violent with the other gender; but I have bashed up quite a few roadside romeos for misbehaving with girls; had my fair share of fights in high-school during cricket-matches as well.

What qualities would you be prescribing to a girl/guy to be ideal for you.
Vegetarian, dog-lover, book-lover and I promise to remain faithful to her till my last breath :)

Do you believe in life after death? If yes, what would you like to be reborn as?
Yes, I do believe in rebirth; I would like to be reborn as a monk in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas.

Please explain ‘Einstein’s Relativity Theory’ in layman terms. (I know the Hot stove – Girl analogy. Please use something else!)
The Twin Paradox Theory - Twins - one sent to travel in outer-space in a space-capsule travelling at a high velocity and the other living on earth. After 20 years the chap on earth would have aged 20 years but the chap in the space capsule would be considerably younger!
