To make the news spicy
Media went overboard
Real news got lost
We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came. John F. Kennedy
Graceful is the one
Who can keep
Own composure, elegance and style
Intact in ups and downs
Like the sun
Who keeps its beauty and elegance
Whether rising up
Or setting down
When the weather is cloudy inside and outside, you search for a ray and cling to it like anything.
Turn to your co-workers, kids, Facebook friends, family — anyone who’s accessible — and ask them to suggest an article, an adjective, and a noun. There’s your post title! Now write.
My husband gave me three words, ‘The’, ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Dog’.
Here goes my story about ‘The beautiful dog’.
It was the cutest, prettiest puppy I have seen in my life, till then.
Frankly, I didn’t love dogs in childhood. Thanks to my brother’s friend who would always shoo his dog after me. The brute was big, ferocious and beautiful if dogs can be called beautiful or handsome. But became submissive after I overpowered him one day.
My maid’s daughter brought this puppy to my house as it has lost its parents. My daughter insisted that she will look after it, though she did not and we ended up looking after it.
The dog was named ‘Kutkut’ as the whole night it made peculiar kutkut sound.
With our love and affection, it became one of us but was envious of my son. It will play with my son but if the father loved him, the puppy will start fighting with my son.
How he will make us understand what he wants without uttering a word, beats me.
He was naughty. He liked the company of girls more than boys though running away with their cricket ball was his favorite game.
He will sit beside my maids 4 daughters listening to their gossip as if understanding everything looking from one girl to another.
I can go on and on praising him and writing anecdote after anecdote describing his playfulness.
This story I wrote for Five sentence Fiction will describe his real nature.
“He was my companion just for three years and in three years he taught me a lot of things, such as humor, selfless love, how to get whatever he wanted without even muttering a word and how to listen patiently before succumbing suddenly to his undiagnosed illness.
Once when he was one year old, he came running to me, kept his head on my stomach and started whining, I patted him with love and scratched his ears thinking that he was missing me and needs a little pampering.
Just then my maidservant came running furiously, she asked me not to pamper the scoundrel as he had pulled down my mother’s freshly washed white sari and was stamping on it with muddy feet and now the cunning fellow has the guts to seek your sympathy as he was sure to get a smack from her.
The reason behind this was that he got a scolding from my mother for digging out all the newly planted saplings while playing in the garden and was warned not to enter the garden again.
My adorable dog Kutkut showed his displeasure in this way.”
My most liked posts are my photography posts.
My assumptions are that readers mostly read other’s posts on WordPress reader. Photographs give them an instant view of what they are going to get. It’s easy to like them then and there without clicking for the original post.
Second place is taken by Friday Fictioneers. They are just 100 words posts. Easy to read and if they attract your fancy then comment.
I always give a good photograph to compensate for my writing. So the third place goes to quotes with lovely, eye-catching photographs.
Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
Whenever I feel lonely I turn to OSHO. Mostly I read his books. They give me a solution to all my problems , peace and calmness. I love one of his quote immensely.
Loneliness is a negative state of mind. Aloneness is positive, notwithstanding what the dictionaries say. In dictionaries, loneliness and aloneness are synonymous — they are synonyms; in life they are not. Loneliness is a state of mind when you are constantly missing the other, aloneness is the state of mind when you are constantly delighted in yourself. Loneliness is miserable, aloneness is blissful. Loneliness is always worried, missing something, hankering for something, desiring for something; aloneness is a deep fulfillment, not going out, tremendously content, happy, celebrating. In loneliness you are off center, in aloneness you are centered and rooted. Aloneness is beautiful. It has an elegance around it, a grace, a climate of tremendous satisfaction. Loneliness is; beggarly; all around it there is begging and nothing else. It has no grace around it. In fact it is ugly. Loneliness is a dependence, aloneness is SHEER independence. One feels as if one is one’s whole world, one’s whole existence.
