Reena’s Exploration Challenge #128

PROMPT #128

So, here we are with three quotes to drive your thoughts.

War is hell. You can’t photograph a flying bullet, but you can capture genuine fear.

Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it.

Thus, what is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy.

Use anyone, or use all, or write something related to the theme. Go wherever the words take you.

 

Playing victim card

enemy’s strategy

then have the last laugh

party when others suffering

how inhumane one can be

PROMPT #126

Here is the theme for this week.

Isolation makes some

lose their mental balance,

depressed

or destructive

some take it in their stride

and come up with

good works

some famous books were

written by people

in solitary confinement

 

Solitary

PROMPT #125

You think she is vulnerable

she needs to be protected

you forget

when you were vulnerable

in her womb

she protected you with all her might

till you became independent

then you forgot

and started treating her badly

perhaps the fact

that your very existence

depends on her

makes you hate her

as people hate most

on whom they are dependent

’cause they remind them

of their own

vulnerability

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #120- RHETORICAL QUESTIONs

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #120

PROMPT

The theme this week is

RHETORICAL QUESTION

Inside the outer shell
Aren’t we all same?
Aren’t our bodies function the same way?
Or since you believe that
You are from a different race, culture, color, religion,
your body is not made of 5 elements?
Would death be different for you?
Isn’t the difference is just that our hardware is all the same,
only the software is different.
You let your mind control you, your ego control you, your greed control you.
Don’t you think the laws of nature, nation, and society should be different for you?
Don’t you think you are the chosen one?

PROMPT 118

Directionless

An unfocused mind

Goes  awry directions

Like rudderless boat

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #117 — Was that really me?

 

 

The real me always

Hides behind a convenient mask

Lest people judge me

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #115

The prompt is to write something in a similar spirit – it could tell the story of a year or day or hour or minute – something that brought about a change in the life of a protagonist, family, community, nation or the world.

 

Life was such fun up to the age of 11.

There were music, dance, studies, games, picnics and all sorts of rides.

Some smooth some bumpy but having parents, siblings, and friends to share it with you is fun nonetheless.

Learning new things every day with friends was such fun which I attended every day till I was 11.

Life was like a nice dream.

Then one fine morning everything changed.

Suddenly I became a grown-up.

In my community girls were not allowed to play outside, laugh loudly or dance and sing after they reached puberty.

An order was passed to take all the childhood fun away from my life. I was suppose to behave in a certain way like, walk like this and talk like this and dress like this all that behaving like a girl.

There were so many dos and don’ts for girls only. Nothing ever changed for the boys. I had entered the realm of youth and childhood was taken away forever.

It made me feel as if a demon has taken control of my life, restricting all my activities.

It’s not that I didn’t enjoy my life after. Thankfully my parents were liberal, siblings caring and loving. We went to school, then college, movies were allowed with family members. There were lots of books to read, there were indoor games but it was different, not like childhood’s carefree, unadulterated, unrestricted fun.

The carnival called childhood was taken away from my life.

उलझन

सब उठाये फिरते अपने अपने दुखों का सलीब,
कौन साथ दे किसका, और कौन मरहम लगाए यहाँ।

आंसुओं को अपनी आँखों में  थामे रखना ,
कौन समझेगा तेरे आंसुओं का मोल यहाँ। 


जो साथ आये रोने वो खुद भी कम ग़मगीन न थे
जो भी रोया साथ आपबीती पर रोया  यहाँ
दुखड़े सुना सुना कर सबको परेशां न कर
दर्द खुद ही सहना होगा  कोई बाँट नहीं सकता  यहाँ

करोड़ों हड़प के भी मिटती नहीं है भूख उनकी
कौन तय करेगा भिखारी है कौन यहाँ
उठाते सूरज को तो सभी सलाम करते हैं 
डूबते को माथा टेके है ये कौन नादान यहाँ 

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #114 — Reformation

Posted on

https://reinventionsreena.wordpress.com/2019/11/21/reenas-exploration-challenge-114

  1. How much poison are you willing to eat for the success of the free market and global trade? Please name your preferred poisons.
  2. For the sake of goodness, how much evil are you willing to do? Fill in the following blanks with the names of your favorite evils and acts of hatred.
  3. What sacrifices are you prepared to make for culture and civilization? Please list the monuments, shrines, and works of art you would most willingly destroy.
  4. In the name of patriotism and the flag, how much of our beloved land are you willing to desecrate? List in the following spaces the mountains, rivers, towns, farms you could most readily do without.
  5. State briefly the ideas, ideals, or hopes, the energy sources, the kinds of security, for which you would kill a child. Name, please, the children whom you would be willing to kill.

 

Statistics that more than 2000 of rape cases are committed by under 18 is much disturbing. Then consider other crimes also. Are they all psychopaths?

They are sent to the reformatory house.  After release their whereabouts are kept a secret, the name changed so they can lead a normal life.

There is no guaranty that they will come out reformed.

Problem is if court punishes them like an adult, after some time they may get accustomed to that life and may come out as a more seasoned criminal.

Children need to channelize their energy in the right direction from childhood.

Our hopes entirely depend on parents, schools, neighborhoods, and volunteers willing to look into the root cause

and take corrective action. Free psychoanalysis and consultation and proper guidance should be available on all levels.

Eliminating crime and reforming the criminal is what I’ll be longing for.

 

 

 

 

 

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #113- Chasing Butterflies

Posted on

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #113

Ah, those famous men! 

imagine balancing

status and egos in one hand
butterfly net in another
eyes full of childlike gleam 
heart full of passion
exotic butterflies
flying around
as if teasing them
to follow 
deliriously their dream
their jobs they forgot
cared not for critics
as this was their vocation
did they feel guilty
trapping butterflies
pinning them alive
and preserve for
just gratification
——————————————-
chasing Butterflies
understandable, if
for appreciating the skill of the creator, or
collecting for scientific reasons
for biodiversity
and conservation
otherwise
chase as sport
admire their beauty
but let them fly freely around
making the world beautiful
with their
stunning beauty
