Questionnaire

I once read this anecdote in a book. Actually, to be quite honest I can’t remember the specific details — but since you have no way of checking, I am just going to make something up. It was a book collector telling about the most wonderful fellow collector that he had ever come across, a guy who collected books on interesting gum diseases from all around the world. He had been collecting these books for years — and asked (obviously) how many he had so far, he said “3”.

Let’s not kid ourselves. Size matters — but not when it comes to being a collector. In regard to collectors only dedication and seriousness matter. Three books on gum diseases can be a collection, just as five carefully selected dildos can, or seven dog drawings, all made by different left handed artists.

So … Are you a collector? If so, please take a minute to answer these few questions. Please just post your answers as a comment.

    Where are you from?
    India. Precisely, New Delhi, the capital of India.

    What do you collect?
    Stones.

    How long have you been a collector?
    Since i was 13.

    What is the most cherished object in your collection – and why?
    The most cherished of the stones that i have collected till now is a big rock that i got between the rocks along a beach in Goa (an extremely renowned tourist destination in India, that i am guessing you would have, or wouldn’t have heard of). It is so because it was ignored between other big rocks where i had placed my royal bum while talking to myself – why can’t i get anything that i want? and suddenly, i find this rock being washed away by waves and little frog placed on it. i threw away the poor little prince (no i didnt want a man in my solitude at that time)and kept the rock as a souvenir of my conversation with myself. Weird enough a reason to like? well let it be as weird as it can get.

    What are you currently looking for?
    i am now looking for rocks in different colours. 🙂 and i don’t really know where am i going to find them.

    Do you share your interest with others? Are you for instance a member of a collectors’ club, or do you communicate with other collectors online?
    no 😦
