Daily Prompt- You, Robot

Posted on

Daily Prompt- You, Robot–  Congrats — you’ve been handed a robot whose sole job is to relieve you of one chore, job, or responsibility you particularly hate. What is it?

 

Wow!

It is true God sees but late.

When I needed someone to help me I would have loved to have a robot to save me from cooking. I always hated cooking. It’s very time-consuming job and if you are cooking for your family it’s thankless also. You can’t make every member of your family at the same time. Children need something, elders another.

Making some special dishes is okay but daily cooking is a tedious, tiresome job. But surprisingly now at old age I don’t hate any job. Perhaps more I am unable to do some jobs the more I cling to them to keep myself active.

After much thought I think I will make my robot my driver. I love to go outdoors and have to depend on my husband’s mood. Nowadays I hate driving and searching for parking places. It’s a nice idea to give it driver’s job. Please God really hand me a robot so I can go out wherever and whenever I want.

 

 

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.

Link Restored

Mother wrote to me,

“Everyone turns to their root at one point in their life.”

“Ha!” I replied, “I have adjusted in this foreign land with its culture, philosophy and almost everything, moreover I’m comfortable with work facilities here.”

Mother replied,

“People are like migratory birds, no matter how much you fly away, you come back home at last.”

“No way!” I concluded.

Now watching my parents standing hand in hand even after so many fights, arguments, difference of opinion at their fiftieth wedding anniversary, I suddenly felt insecure, can’t explain why?

I wrote to mother,

“Mother we are coming back.”

 

My sister-in-law with her husband at their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

AFTERMATH

Nine years old survivor recalls ‘ her house was bombed by a government warplane.’  She lost her leg, parents, siblings, and house and had to flee from her country with others to take shelter in another country.

Watching other children, playing in the park, enjoying swings, slides and running after butterflies as she used to do in her country, makes her cry.

When two countries fight for political or religious reasons, it is the children who suffer most. Those who witness their parents, friends, neighbors shot and killed, their childhood is lost. Life is never same again for them.

Five Sentence Fiction – Fearless

Five Sentence Fiction – Fearless

Lillie McFerrin Writes

FEARLESS

 

They were pack of six daredevils, studying in the same college, sharing a rented house in our locality. 

Apart from participating in dangerous games they were ever ready to help others, be it walking in fire, jump in the water or climb the mountain to save someone, they were pride of our locality.

Our locality leaders thought to award them to encourage other youths.

 Members of felicitation committee went to their house for some details only to found them huddled together in a corner shivering with fright.

Their object of fright was a big fat cockroach looking at them as if asking ‘ why are you afraid of a little insect like me?’ 

(Based on a true incident, I witnessed on my train journey to Goa)

PERSPECTIVE

“At least sixty percent of earthlings are mad! They are an intolerant lot. They have forked tongue.”

The Alien father was passing on his knowledge to his son while touring the earth.

“They talk of brotherhood, love, compassion and compatibility but will kill each other to prove their supremacy over who was civilized first , over color, caste, creed, over whose  culture, religion is best, or over as silly an issue as whether one is spoon person, chopstick person, fork person or eats with his hands.

We  never judge people by their food habits but by their credentials.”
