Five Sentence Fiction – Waiting

 

WAKE UP CALL

 

The world was waiting with bated breath; my team members were chewing their nails as it was cricket world cup finals between two recognized rival countries making the match more interesting.

 

Last over, last ball and I was the last batsman to take the strike, only four runs needed to win.

 

I looked equally menacingly at the bowler; corrected my stance: it was either hit six or be doomed.

 

Someone wailed in my ears ‘ wake up silly, wake up’

 

Oh no! Why mother comes always at the wrong time or was it the dream always comes at the waking time.

 

 

The Daily Post- Work? Optional! Work is Worship.

Posted on

The Daily Post- Work? Optional!- If money were out of the equation, would you still work? If yes, why, and how much? If not, what would you do with your free time?

 

 

If we can get everything free there is obviously no need to go out for work but can anyone live without work?

Life will become very boring without work. Moreover one can’t live without work. Nature has endowed  every creature in this world with such a wonderful machine that it needs feeding, cleaning, keeping warm or cold according to seasons,  needs shelter, comforts and there are so many  necessities that we  can’t survive with just lazing around. 

I cannot live without work, I love to eat only what I have earned so I do all my household work though we are retired; we get pension and can get all work done by paying to maidservants, we can’t live without working.. Cooking, taking rest, watching TV, reading a book ,writing a post, exercise, all are part of my daily routine so there is nothing called free time in our life, even sleeping is a part of work required to keep our body fit. I would like to work till the last day of my life even if I get all the money of the world. 

It is true that empty mind is the workshop of the devil and to avoid this and make mind workshop of god we believe in work is worship.

 

Things that Make Us Go “Click!”

Things that Make Us Go “Click!”

Very recently I have taken photography as a hobby. I liked other photographer’s photographs, enjoyed but never thought I could do it till one day I noticed my phone camera. I didn’t know even how to use it. Then after fumbling with it for some time I managed to take two-three pictures of sea beach. The photos were so nice without any great effort from my side that I felt hooked to photography.

I like to click anything which appeals to me be it nature, people or animals. I never go out without camera and something says inside me ‘click’ and I take photographs.

Mainly my photographs are of sunrise and sea beach but sometimes even a patch of road looks so enchanting you can’t leave without clicking it.

Daily Prompt- Tunnel Vision

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Tunnel Vision- You’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect your home with the location of your choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of your tunnel?

Without a second thought I would connect the tunnel to DISNEYLAND PARK . Which promises -

“Enter a magical kingdom where you can sail with pirates, explore exotic jungles, meet fairy-tale princesses, dive under the ocean and rocket through the stars—all in the same day!

It’s my childhood dream to visit this magical park.

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf-  Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

 

I ask myself ‘ which book would be the first one you would like to reread ?’

Tough question as my bookcase has all my favorite books which I purchased with  money I saved and spent on books instead of cloths. Osho, Paulo Coelho, Deepak Chopra, Dale Carnegie, Robin Sharma, Brian Tracy and many more have accompanied me for many years. I never get bored reading anyone from these. I have some light comedy, suspense, detective novels also which I purchased with clear intention that they are not just one time read. Read and throw away time. I never waste money on them. Sorry, I’m drifting away.

My first purchase was ‘ STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING’ . I stumbled upon this book in my friends place and got hooked to it.

I never believe in asking solutions for my problems to others. I believe every problem comes with a solution.

I got this book at a time when my son joined Indian Navy, my daughter got married, my husband is somewhat workaholic and I was suffering from chronic some diseases and was very depressed, always worrying.

This book came as a boon to me. There are not only causes and analysis for worries but simple solutions and stories of other sufferer and how they could come over their worries.

When you read about others problems then only you realise that how tiny or petty are your problems.

Little understanding, not running away from problems, facing them, trying to find a solution, little exercise and meditation all helps.

So when I find time I reread this and one more ‘Maximum Achievement’ by Brian Tracy and recommend to others also.

 

 

 

 

Daily Prompt- Uncanned Laughter- Carol or Parole

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Uncanned Laughter-  A misused word, a misremembered song lyric, a cream pie that just happened to be there: tell us about a time you (or someone else) said or did something unintentionally funny.

 

Its an old, at least 43 years old faux pass but I still feel ashamed of it, a word I misused in my haste to show my knowledge.

It so happened 43 years ago my newly wed elder sister came to visit mother and me with his christian husband on the christmas eve afternoon. After chatting for sometime they got up to go but my mother insisted them to go after dinner.

My bro-in-law declined saying he has to go with friends at night for…

Before he could finish, to show how much I know of their culture as I had studies at missionary school, I chirped in

‘Mother let them go they have to go for PAROLE’

Full marks to my BIL, real gentleman he is, very quietly without even smiling, he corrected ‘ carol, indu, carol.’

With great difficulty my sister suppressed her smile. I still feel  embarrassed when I remember this.

Afterward we all had a good laugh on that.

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Flower Gardens-  The key to this weeks challenge is to get the whole garden, not individual flowers…

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
