Reena’s Exploration Challenge #86- Bleeding Edge

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #86

PROMPT

This week’s prompt consists of two words –

BLEEDING EDGE

The dictionary meaning is- the very forefront of technological development.

 

The Bleeding Edge: behind the terrifying new Netflix documentary

The $400bn medical device industry is exposed in a horrifying look at a string of products that have wreaked havoc on patients

A terrifying new documentary carries a stark warning that a nightmare has been lurking in the medical industry for decades and it might be in your body.

“If we can’t change the laws and we can’t convince companies to put moral issues above profits, then all of us really have to be vigilant,” said The Bleeding Edge’s producer, Amy Ziering. “My great hope is you watch this film and then you are really, really, really careful and ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research.”

Millions of people have been harmed by medical devices and millions more will if nothing is done.”

But this success is not enough for either film-maker and they hope the public, lawmakers and medical community will push for change in the industry.

The Bleeding Edge 


the harm they do  for  profit
to the poor and ignorant
is irreversible
greed knows no bounds
for the betterment of some
some suffer
their excuse
bloody,
bleeding edge technology
my only hope
the selfless people
who come forward
to fight for others
as they care
they bring awareness
and try to
bring all sufferers together
to fight against
the policymakers and
medical fraternity
to change the system
kudos to these
social workers

Resilient friend,

you are used,
abused, and 
misused.
treated unfairly
Yet,
you never complain.
hiding many wounds
Doing your duties
silently
with crying heart.
Does

a thought in your mind
of vengeance,
teaching men
a lesson,
or,
your faith

they will understand
and mend their ways
makes 
you bear everything
without 
resistance. 
I hope and wish
your patience pays 
before
it’s 
too late
before 
they devastate themselves
by their indifference
and ignorance.
 

Through  the battles of life

Emerges gloriously

Resilient souls

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #83- Perspective

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #83

Prompt – perceptive

Perspective

everyone’s perspective is based on
their own experiences
we only have to have
some definite space
between us
where we can
agree to disagree on some points
without
anger
hatred
or, bitterness
without judging
each other
then
the world around us
changes
magically
becomes
more peaceful, and
friendly

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #82

PROMPT

I am not a fatalist. I’m not obsessed with darkness. Yet, a landmark development in astronomy this week inspires me to remain on the periphery of the theme, but not get sucked inside.

 

mother said

put all your miseries
in a black hole
you have in your mind
find your own solutions
and learn from them
no use sharing with others
they will listen
with sympathy first
but only once
then will start ignoring you
as everyone has some problem
which they want to share
understanding other problem is difficult
so be a good listener
listen with attention
and
I’m listening
till now

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #79- Color of Beauty

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #79

Words: Color, Chroma, Pigment, Hue, Stain, Tinge

What is the color of beauty?
 I don’t remember seeing the mother in any other saree than white, no hues of any color.
 Even after doing all household work by herself how she kept it so white always puzzled me.
She Finished her cooking without a stain of turmeric or red chilly or from any spice or fruits or vegetables.
After the bath, she used to wear sarees with a colored border, red or, green or blue or whatever with a matching blouse. She used red sindoor as big bindi/dot between her eyebrows, would put a little black homemade Kajal/ Kohl in her eyes and lo!  the most beautiful woman in the world was ready to compete in any beauty contest.
Well, it was and is my opinion. she herself thought herself ugly in comparison to my father who was fairer than she who was few shades darker than him.
Alas! She never looked herself through my eyes.
Does color matters to define beauty?
Whatever shade of color you are you only need love, grace, and compassion to look beautiful.
Motherhood is chroma of Beauty.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #78

(Today, we have a paragraph as a prompt. Do whatever you can with it. Reflect on it, twist it, break it into pieces and use a phrase or just write if you agree/disagree or whatever you think about it. As usual, there are no restrictions on length or format. Suit yourself.)

PROMPT

“That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz

strange

if someone thinks

leaves live and die unnoticed
nature makes sure
you notice them
in every season
by changing their colors
they wither away
for sure
but
not before
they have served
their purpose

Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 77

Woman – Her Journey

journey of the women

could have been

a lot easy

if

nurtured, cared, loved

with

understanding, companionship, compassion, respect, and unity

by their own gender

because

if you are not fair to the people of your own gender

how will you expect

understanding, equality, and respect

fair treatment from others

who don’t treat

even people

of their own gender

fairly

and discriminate by

poor, weak, color, sex, caste and creed

so women

you have to become strong and unite

as the strength lies in unity

नारी ने कहा
हे नर!

मैं तो हमेशा से वहीँ हूँ 

जहाँ मुझे होना था 

न तुम्हारे आगे न पीछे 
न ऊपर न नीचे 
बस बराबरी में
मुझे तो कभी भी महान बनने की चाहत न थी 
तुम ही हमेशा  ऊंचा बनने की होड़ में लगे रहे 
महान बनने के रास्ते तो और भी थे
उन पर चल तुम ईश्वर बन सकते थे 
पर तुमने यह क्या किया   
मुझे नीचा  दिखाने की कोशिश में 
खुद से कमजोर जताने  की ख्वाहिश में 
खुद को महान  दिखाने की चाहत में 
मुझे मेरे अधिकारों से वंचित किया 
मुझ पर बलात्कार और जुर्म कर 
खुद को ही नीचा गिरा कर 
मुझ स्वतः ही  उपर उठा दिया
