Chp 585. Interview with boxer Jenny

#TBT otherwise known as #ThrowbackThursday is a weekly social media trend, where people post old photos or events to share their memories with others. This is particular common among Instagram users, though Facebook and Twitter too have seen their fair share of #TBT posts. As one social media analyst wrote, "There aren't really any limitations or rules as to what can be posted on a #TBT, but it can be fun to participate as it really just gives people an excuse to post more."


So today being a Thursday, here is my #TBT post. Now this is one of my old posts from, and in my earlier blog post "Interview with Zonuni" (who currently must be extremely nervous as hell since the Aizawl Munical Corporation election was held today and results to be announced later tonight!) Zonuni mentioned that she really liked the way I interviewed Jenny. I did receive a couple of messages from friends asking me for that interview link, but since is still down, here is me cross-posting that old interview excerpt from our site db.

Now do keep in mind that it was just a casual interview done in good fun. Also remember this took place in Jan 2007, so a lot of things happened after that. And as usual, my photos are of really low resolution because back then, size was a big deal while uploading so I used to resize all my photos before putting them online. :(


Interview with Jenny!

Rushed back from the tea party yesterday for a dinner party hosted by my cousins. Also present at that dinner was none other than our much cherished and adored Jenny, World Boxing Champion. She happened to be my cousin's wife's cousin :-) That's what I love about our close knitted society - There is always a link somehow.

So I decided to interview her, exclusively for, with questions that no other newspaper or website would have asked her before: Some serious questions, some cheeky ones, and a few personal questions that made her blush like a budding red rose.
