What is Suprose?

Welcome to Suprose.

Kaavya Viswanathan -- These are a few of her favorite things…

Like Julie Andrews sings in the Sound of Music -- I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel, so bad…. Here is a list of some of Viswanathan’s favorites which will hopefully help her recharge herself and get back to normalcy...
Favorite Books
By Indian Author: The Shadow Lines by Amitav Ghosh / The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
By non Indian Author: The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro / Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
Favorite Movie
Indian: Never really seen any, but I did like Monsoon Wedding and Bend it Like Beckham (if those count).
Non-Indian: Pretty Woman!
Favorite Actor
Indian: I really don't know any Indian actors....sorry!
Non-Indian: I love George Clooney - looks *and* talent.
Favorite Actress
Indian: Again, I'm not familiar with any. I guess Aishwarya Rai is an obvious choice though.
Non-Indian: Nicole Kidman
Favorite Theater/Ballet
I love the ballets of The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. Favorite theater is definitely Guys and Dolls.
Favorite Kind of Music
Indian: I love the soundtrack for Gajani (I’m sure I’m spelling that wrong, but that's how it's pronounced I think....)
Non-Indian: Beatles, Oasis, U2, Coldplay, Keane.
Favorite Pastime
Shopping and reading in bed.
Favorite Cuisine
To Eat: French, Japanese. Indian is pretty high up there too though.
To Cook: French wins again.
Favorite Drink
Pina coladas. But plain, cold water is a huge favorite too.
Favorite Kinds of Dress
I like to be stylish - skirts and polo shirts, jeans, button down oxfords, ballerina flats and high heeled shoes.
Favorite electronic gadgets
My Treo (it's growing on me).
Favorite Restaurant
Indian: Namaskaar (it's this Indian place in a strip mall near my house, and it's stereotypical 'desi' food, and fattening and creamy, but absolutely delicious).
Non-Indian: Le Bristol (it's in Paris, and my parents took me there last summer. Crowning experience of my foodie life. Although, in NYC, Alain Ducasse at the Essex House is pretty fantastic too.)
Favorite Hangout
My bed (really). Outside if it's a nice day, wherever my friends are.
Favorite Cities/Places to visit
London and Paris
Favorites Clothes
To hang out in: Jeans and a cable knit sweater.
To be dressy in: I have a large collection of dresses. One gorgeous red Nicole Miller dress that never fails to make me feel glamorous.
Favorite Color
I really do like everything. But fuschia, and pale blue stand out.
Favorite Pets
Dog (I would love a little yorkshire terrier or a collie).
Favorite Mode of Transportation
Driving - it's what I miss most when I'm at college.
Favorite Car
Aston-Martin convertibles (maybe one day I can afford one). My car, which is a vintage '72 Mercedes SL350.
Favorite Part of the Day
Late afternoons.
Favorite Person(s)
My parents, my family.
