Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 5 – Meraki
Meraki [may-rah-kee] This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.
I think whatever I do , I do with Meraki or I don’t do it. Be it cooking, sketching, writing , photography or any house hold work. I just didn’t know the exact word to describe it. Thanks to Rarasaur I have learnt a new word for it.
She has asked to write List 5 things you always do with meraki, here are they-
1- I always say sorry and thank you with Meraki.
2- I love my family, friends and every one with Meraki and when I hate dishonesty, violence, lies etc ? yes, that too with Meraki
3- I write my blog with Meraki.
4- I like, appreciate and comment on others post sincerely, with Meraki.
5- I love life and have lived with Meraki and I’ll embrace death with Meraki. ( Wow sounds very romantic no?)
Any task we do not do with meraki lacks something, seems incomplete and lefts a taste of dissatisfaction in us. Whereas whatever you do with
soul, creativity, or love, will fulfill you with joy and satisfaction.
Now about sharing a picture that represents doing something with meraki, I can’t leave this oppertunity to showcase some of of my drawings and photography.
Today I went to beach for a sunrise photo and instead got Moon at 6am smiling at me.
This mermaid statue sitting alone at a small beach, Bhimli, Visakhapatnam, surprised me.
This pond at Ruins of a Buddhist Monestry, at such a height , with source of water unknown, is really unique.
Winter has come but in Visakhapatnam we don’t have to face much cold. No snow, no shivering , chilling cold, just a pleasant weather all day.
Instead of summer’s clear morning , we can witness a foggy morning.

Whether you like mathematics or not, you can’t run away from this. Life is all about chemistry, physics , biology and maths.
As for geometry, we can’t do away with geometrical shapes. Apart from nature’s gift of geometric shapes, architect, buildings etc. we use them in our daily life also. Our food items are not without rectangular , square , circular or spherical shapes.
