Daily Prompt- Advantage of Foresight

Posted on

 

Daily Prompt- Advantage of Foresight- You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less). How would you use this power, it at all?

 

Methinks,

Future is unpredictable and that’s what makes life interesting.

What is the use of predicting future unless you have the power to change it? 

Just knowing what lies ahead and lessen one day of your life doesn’t makes sense unless it is good for you and you can change it if it is bad.

Life already is full of problems, why add more worries and lose peace of mind.

Your choices and decisions taken today make your future.

So take lessons from yesterday, live in today and work hard for better future.

Daily Prompt- The Mirror Crack’d

Daily Prompt- The Mirror Crack’d-

You wake up one morning to a world without mirrors. How does your life — from your everyday routines to your perception of yourself — change?

(Thanks for suggesting this thought-provoking prompt, Chocolate Eyes!)

Mirror is my best friend.

It has taught me many things.

The first time I saw my face in the mirror, I did not believe it was me.

Didn’t mother say that I was pretty?

But mirror did not show a pretty face.

Was mother lying? I asked her.

She said I was most pretty for her.

Oh! That! Every mother thinks that her child is prettiest of all.

Then I started trying to make myself beautiful with different hairstyles, make up and look at the mirror hoping now it will accept me as pretty.

Mirror never lies but it taught that first I have to accept myself then it will accept me.

Slowly it became my friend.

It reflected an honest, loving caring face which may not be beautiful but acceptable to all my near and dear ones.

It taught me that the best quality a face possesses when one can look in the mirror without feeling any guilt and without  envy, anger and hatred toward others.

My daily routine ,after waking up in the morning,is thanking God then go to mirror to notice how dishevelled I’m looking and to tidy up myself. It’s not important though but  has become a habit which is very difficult to get rid off.

If I wake up one morning to find the world without mirror, after cribbing for sometime I will definitely find some replacement.

But I will miss my best friend very much.

I never thought we would miss so much without mirrors until I read joatmons post.

Daily prompt- Pains and Gains

Posted on

Daily prompt- Pains and Gains-  Do you agree with Jane Fonda’s favorite exercise motto, “no pain, no gain?” Is it impossible to attain greatness without considerable hardship?

” Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

William Shakespeare

I totally agree with Jane Fonda as I truly believe that nothing comes without hard work even   if one is born with a silver spoon in  mouth , it may give one lot of  comforts, privileges and opportunities which may help one to become great  in any one particular field such as, science, music, dance etc.etc.

But,

Is having name, fame money and power greatness?

Or there is something else which makes people great.

Some  wise men say that one is great if one does not gives into six enemies,  lust, envy, pride, anger, greed and illusion.

This type of greatness may not need physical pain or hard work but requires very strong mind and hard discipline as it is not easy to control one’s mind to conquer these enemies and become real great person.

Five Sentence Fiction – Conflict

Five Sentence Fiction – Conflict

conflict_analysis

 

Long sessions of meditations, satsang( company of pious people seeking truth) and introspection made me think that all my inner conflicts have vanished , I have learned to control my anger, and peace and calmness dawned on me.

 

I accepted that God has given us so many ups and downs in life to make us tough.

 

I realized that all religions teach same virtues love, compassion, kindness, harmony and compatibility and only some intolerant of follower spread hate and disturbance for their personal gain and power.

 

I understood completely that anger and greed are the biggest enemies and empathy and forgiveness are our biggest friend and liberate us.

 

But…when I read about rapists, terrorists and people who commit heinous crimes, through acid on others, oppress weak and poor, all thoughts of forgiveness evaporated, I wished I could make them stand in a line and shoot them, some people don’t deserve to live.

 

Aquira- Ladki hoon mein

Posted on

Aquira- This is not my story – this is a story of every other woman who has faced sexist oppression but their courage and determination remained undeterred and unshakable. I salute those women and for the rest this is a calling of the revolution that has already started!

 

Friends please watch this video, its awesome and please like it on youtube.

Here are the lyrics of the song, written by Shaoni Maitra.

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

pichechodazamana,

Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana,

Ladki hoon main toh kya hain?

HainekParda, hata de; Hainekdarsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

Tumne socha ladki hoon main ghabraoongi,

patriarchal monarchy main kho jaoongi,

Quintessential “Abla nari” reh jaoongi,

aspirations paron tale kuchlaoongi,

This is where my hon you got it all wrong,

so here I am wearing pants, doing the jiggy male dance,

Walking the talk, talking the walk,

doing the jiggy male dance,

 

So whatcha looking at (come join in);

Hey you gyani, (stop smirking)

We know selling(and cooking),

we know finance( and romance)

Idhar Udhar Gaye mila na koi sheh,

kyoinsahusadiyoin ka yeh kathputliyon ka khel,

Andheri Tufanoin ke Teevra Diyan hoon main,

Gumnam na hone dungi tere ichha ke diya ko main,

 

It’s no more hazy ,

so I am ready ,

No one’s gonna stop me now Poripurno korbo shopno,

etai amar motto now; Tai rock e boshe adda mar aar jotoi pnpc kor Mulgi haath se geli keval,

Yash tiche marg jaane ; Jhagar ke, Nagar se, (Dekho iski Udaan – silence)

 

I know it’s not easy,

coz its easier said than done;

I am some stranger with a mic going all out on this fight But this ain’t fake,

for heaven sake; Next to the window you sit and repent kuch kash main kiya hota re….

So chalo chalo aage chalo, bado bado aage bado;

Neka neka nahin kehna re

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

piche choda zamana,Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana, Ladki hoon main toh kya hain?

Hain ek Parda, hata de; Hain ek darsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

Kari Rahiyo nathi dhoklas but also mota mota rokras Kanjivaram Cheeralu inka pillaley kadu Vyaparm meeda-kuda manastatvam paratha na sirafa,

but ihavi resspectable afsara So encourage her, don’t you discourage her; C’mon just believe her,

give her that helping hand chalo chalo aage chalo, bado bado aage bado;

Neka neka nahin kehna re Dhakka dhakka piche dhakka , phir bhi li hain aage Kadam…teri meri aage jeet hain re

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

piche choda zamana,Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana, Ldki hoon main toh kya hain?

Hain ek Parda, hata de; Hain ek darsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

 

 

Daily Prompt- August Blues

Posted on

Daily Prompt- August Blues- As a kid, were you happy or anxious about going back to school? Now that you’re older, how has your attitude toward the end of the summer evolved?

 

I think I was a blessed kid I had  a set of friends in neighbourhood as well as another set of friends at school.. We enjoyed our summer vacation with siblings, and friends playing whole day. My summer vacation was equally enjoyable as my schooling.Then there were relatives who visited with their kid in summer.  Life was fun. After summer vacation going back to school was another fun as I loved my school, studies, and my schoolmates. Meeting them after a long time, sharing experience with each other was also much fun which we looked forward to.

Now with age everything  has changed but   watching children playing, from my balcony whole day is much. In holidays they have time to play thrice a day.  My mornings, afternoons and in the evenings, with their chirping, laughing, chasing each other makes summer alive.

 With getting old, the end of summer brings thought of lonely mornings and evenings as children will start going to school,and will be  allowed to play only in the evening, makes me a little sad but then  they will also be yearning to go to school, meeting their friends, relaxes me. Everyone is entitled to his/her share of fun. I have learned to cope with this too.

Weekly Writing challenge- Build Your Own

Posted on

Build Your Own-  In this week’s build-your-own challenge, write a post that includes two key components that we’ve provided for you.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands/The Daily Post!)

Loneliness is an interesting feeling. 

Only then,when you get used to it. Otherwise it is intimidating. Scary.

Mind will never let you live alone.

It will go on suggesting you to do something,

listen to music, do some work, listen music, watch TV, write something, go to meet a friend or talk to your neighbor.

It feels uncomfortable if you don’t do anything.

It is afraid of loneliness.

It will invent ghosts and spirits to scare you of loneliness.

Once try not to do anything, just sit forcefully neglecting all suggestion your mind provides with.

Let it say anything, don’t become active participant.

You will find, after sometime. Your mind become quiet.

It become calm and peaceful.

Suddenly you become aware of sounds you have never noticed before.

Sound off your breathing, heart beating, birds chirping, air rustling, some distant sound.

Slowly it also fades away.

Stillness captures you.

You start listening to someone other than your mind, perhaps your conscience or you may call it your soul or god.

Something or someone you always avoided to listen.

Then Loneliness becomes interesting.

You start enjoying it. You long to be lonely sometimes.

Then you find real you.

LONELINESS IS AN INTERESTING FEELING.
