Daily Prompt- Full Disclosure

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Full Disclosure- A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?


When my mad scientist friend came to me with offer, I thought it would be interesting to what other people, you are talking to, especially cat, dog or other animals are thinking but only sometimes. Otherwise it will interrupt my talking as I’ll be busy hearing what they are thinking.

Had I been a detective, it would have helped me know read the criminal’s mind and solve the mystery. 

My mind itself is chattering all the time and to burden it will others thought will be too much, it will become insane.

Moreover it will be like trespassing. I do not like others to know what I’m thinking when they are talking.

Usually people don’t listen to each other. Their mind is preoccupied with their thoughts. They just wait for the chance when other person will stop talking and they will start, some people don’t even wait for that. They have habit of interrupting. 

So just for fun and only for some time I would have accepted it but the catch, that I can’t turn it off decided it. 

No thanks dear friend, I am better off without it.

I would love to know what this cat is thinking.

Daily Prompt- Now? Later!

Posted on

Now? Later!- We all procrastinate. Website, magazine, knitting project, TV show, something else — what’s your favorite procrastination destination?


I procrastinate only when I have to write story for writing challenges. My destination is always TV shows. I may criticize it, get bored or sleep while watching it but run to it to get some excuse for not writing.. On one pretext or another like entertainment is also necessary, I may learn from them dialog writing or any other silly excuse will do. Then there are always realities shows, news channels or animal kingdom cookery shows or any educational show which make me believe I’m getting some knowledge which may help me in writing.

There are all sorts of excuse I will cook up to procrastinate and watch TV.


This TV show is very boring.

Five Sentence Fiction – Pages/ Lesson

Five Sentence Fiction – Pages




Mother! Why our life is so tough, so full of twists and turns and bends”

‘So that you become tough, take lessons from every experience, ‘ mother said.

‘ It will help you sail through difficult times otherwise without pain and experience your life will be like a collection of  empty pages, a book without any colorful illustrations ‘ she added.

Then she gave me a diary to fill every page of it with what choices, decisions I took in difficult time and how I survived that period, where I faltered, when I succeeded.

Now my diary is the proof of how I survived every rough storm and held my head high.




Daily Prompt- Can’t Stand Me

Posted on

can’t stand me- What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

That’s very unfair. No, not the prompt but the question. Why?

Now, If I find myself unbearable in my video or recording then obviously I lack either good looks or melodious voice.

Any person with a tolerable looks or voice will not find themselves unbearable.

My cat said she looks better than me in pictures as she is lot more photogenic than me and she could mew in such a sweet voice that I should take training from her.

I believe her completely.

So both video and recording are a big no-no for me.

 The truth is more horrifying than fiction.

Word Count- 103


The lone surviving daughter in her family Laxmi looked at the sky hopefully.

Dark clouds, lightning and thunder promised a good rain fall this year.

She hoped her parents might not have to sell her this year to repay their debts.

In the last three years many in their debt ridden village were compelled to sell their wives and daughter to survive the ravaging drought, an uninvited guest.

The meager money provided by the State and Union Govt. to the drought affected areas did not reach the small farmers and agricultural workers like them.

She sighed, ‘ it’s too early to be hopeful.’

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Nature


“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

Daily Prompt- generous Genies

Posted on

Daily Prompt- generous Genies- Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?


Ah! It feels so nice to be emancipated from that tiny lamp.

It was a little boy who found and freed me. now I have to give him three wishes. It is the norm whether he understands the real value of wishes or not. If I ask him; he will certainly settle for toys, money or things like this so I think I shouldn’t ask him but give him whatever I think will be useful for him.

I will grant him,

1)  loving, compassionate heart with respect to everyone.

2) The wish to work hard to aspire for his dreams.

3) A terror free, secure, caring society.

This will help him grow up as  a nice and happy and an honest citizen and will be an asset to his society and nation.

This looks a bit mature things for a child but only a happy, secure,loving, caring and compassionate human being can give happiness to fellow human beings.
