define frdship - When the person can look you in the eye and tell you you've done something wrong, when he/she will tell you the truth because they want to be a better person, when you don't feel bad about crying in front of them, and when he/she gives you their shoulder to cry on.  Well you've found your true friend!
 
define truth - Hmm... tough, truth could factual or just something that actually happened and not the wrong account of it.
 
books r da best companion ............expalin - Yep they're.  No matter how alone you are as soon as you pick a book and start reading it, the book will take you in another world and then you'll no longer be alone.
 
wot according to u wud be da perfect valentine day celebration - Hm... let's see, The first time he sees me on the day, he bends on his knees and gives a rose, I take it and he tells me that I am the most special person in his life.  Later on we spend the day together cherishing the moments we've spent together and planning more in the future.  Finally end the day with candle light dinner and slow romantic dance.  Afterwards if possible I'd like to go to a beach with him and look at the moon.  That's it. Embarrassed

1. "'Mahi Mahi" ? had ?  ....
Sorry I don't get the question Embarrassed

2. i saw banner, and i was wondering abt these books.
So if u know some of these books, please tell me the name, and did u read those, and which one u liked a lot, and which one u didn't like.
The Kite Runner - Loved it! Amazingly written book!
Go Ask Alice - Nope haven't read it.
Namesake - No
Twilight - No
Harry Potter - Yes, all 7.  I think all of them were fabulous and kept me engaged.
A series of unfortunate events. - No, I have seen the movie but I heard the book is not that great.
My favorite would be hard to decide since it's between HP and Kite Runner.. All are my fav.



3. i was reading abt movie, "Luck by chance".
Story and screenplay by Zoya, dialogues by Javed akhtar.
So i was thinking, what does it mean,  Story, then screenplay, and dialogues.  Just curious, what do u think abt 'screenplay' ?
Well, I am really good with the technical details of film making either but I'll give it a try.  Story could mean just the outline of the story like the basic summary of what would happen.  Screenplay could be the scene to scene explanation of what will happen and how and then of course the dialogues.

4. Do u use dog ear ?
Sometimes when I am lazy enough to go get a bookmark or if one of my cousins steals my book mark. LOL

5. which fav author u want to meet, and which first question abt his/her work, u will ask ?
Tough call.  J.K. Rowling and Khaled Hosseini definitely.  J.K. Rowling I would want to ask her how she characterized Harry so well.  How did she come up with this character.  Khaled Hosseini - I'll ask him about his views on the condition of Afghanistan today.

6. Can u read hindi/urdu or any other language than English, if yes, which is fav book in that language.
I can read Spanish, Urdu, and Punjabi but not very great with them so I haven't attempted an acutal novel yet.

7. Any book, which ur friend borrowed and haven't returned yet, and u miss that.
Nope, none, all of my friends are very particular with what they borrow and they'll return it ASAP.

8. Any book, which u lost, and u miss it.
I've rarely ever lost anything - Thank God! And thus this is not an issue.
=========

Hmmm, Abt critic and truth, i was thinking a little bit on same lines. u cleared it more :-)
Ok, so i happily announce now, 'Reading is my hobby too' :-D  Aww.... that's great!

abt 304436, hmmmm, it is related to 'August 31st', a significant date abt u, abt which i asked u once, in another motw :-)
It's when I joined IF? Embarrassed

Mahi-mahi is a kind of fish.  And there are many dishes, some ppl like it.
i recently watched a movie in which a  guy ordered this dish.
-----
HP is my fav too. I read it, when first book came out, and i was a laughing stock at my hostel, bcoz that time my friends thought that this is a book for children. And when i ordered this for hostel-library, ppl made fun of me. hehehe.
i started reading, kite-runner, and i heard there is a movie too, so will watch that too.
I don't know why i don't like 'twilight'. i haven't read it, but i just don't want to read it. There is a kind of block, abt which i haven't thought much.
------
question i want to ask her (Rowling), does she ever get nightmares abt the creatures :-)
-----
Yeah, u are the 304436th member :-D

Thanks for answering :-)
If i can see RNBDJ before this motf is over,
i will come with more questions.

And when i ordered this for hostel-library, ppl made fun of me. hehehe.  Oh, yeah I wasn't very much into fantasies before this book, in fact I hadn't read many at all.  But I saw the movie first and then my brother got the book.  Finally after my friends made constant fun of me about how I can be a books lover and not read HP, I gave in and started reading it.  And I finished all 6 books in two weeks.  The 7th one wasn't out yet. 
i started reading, kite-runner, and i heard there is a movie too, so will watch that too. The Kite Runner is an amazing book! I simply love this book because of the way the characters come across and it's such a heart touching story.  Brought tears to my eyes many times.  But the movie is a complete waste of time.  Especially after reading the book, the movie didn't appeal to me at all.  The parts I loved the most in the book were left out in the movie. Ouch
I don't know why i don't like 'twilight'. i haven't read it, but i just don't want to read it. There is a kind of block, abt which i haven't thought much.  Yeah I have heard a whole lot about Twilight but vampires and all that kind of stuff is just not my idea of a great book.  I am just not very happy with this kind of themes.
------
question i want to ask her (Rowling), does she ever get nightmares abt the creatures :-) Oh, that's an interesting question... especially after the movie is out.  Actually I want to also ask her about each of the creatures and how closely they were able to shape her imagination.
-----
Yeah, u are the 304436th member :-D  I see, thanks, I would've never known.

Thanks for answering :-)  You're most welcome!
If i can see RNBDJ before this motf is over,
i will come with more questions.  Sure, my pleasure only! I can answer a thousand questions about RNBDJ.  One of my favorite movies of all times.
