Or- The Daily Prompt

Posted on

Or?

Do as I say OR

Bear the consequences

Threatened everyone

From parents to nature and God

I hated to be threatened

So broke every rule

And am

Suffering

The consequences

Now I have

Mellowed down

As I understand

Rules are

Not always

To dare you but

For your betterment

And discipline you

So better watch

Before saying no

Think carefully

Then accept and nod

The Daily Post- Sudden Shift

The Daily Post- Sudden Shift

 

You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hail starts descending from the sky. Write a post about what happens next.

It was a very pleasant weather. We friends decided to spend the morning at sea beach. Some started swimming and some just sat on the sand enjoying water melon.

Younger one started playing Frisbee.

Idling on the sea beach has its own charm.

We decided to stay on till evening. We had enough munching material.

We were not alone. Good whether has attracted many locals and tourists were adding to the charm with their colourful attire.

All of a sudden whether changed and hail started from the sky. All hell broke loose.

The first thing everyone tried to save their heads while running to shelter.

In our beach area there is not much to take refuge in.

Whatever one could lay hands on, towel, scarf, stole snatched and covered their head. One woman, who unluckily swam far, came back and running covering her head with her hands as if it will save her from naphthalene size hails. One boy even tried to hide under water but could not stay for a long time.

We were all running towards road to reach my house. It was just across the road but reaching that much without covering our self was a hard task as running on the sand itself is a tough job, imaging that to do with wet clothes.

Those who came with a big sheets took three four person under their wrap.

Worst hit were people who came to take a bath in sea after shaving their head and performing some ritual. There is one Hindi proverb’ सिर मुंडाते ही ओले पडे’ means misfortune in the very first adventure. Poor fellows.

Surprisingly no one lose their spirit. They were cooing, and shouting, cheering up and trying to help each other. They were not thinking about locals or outsiders. Suddenly they were as one under tough situation and that was heart rising.

People always come together in tough times.

The Daily Post- Naked with Black Socks

Posted on

The Daily Post- Naked with Black Socks– Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?

I was very shy in my childhood. Meeting people, neighbours, even close relative like my granny and aunt would make me hide in the toilet till they went away.

Once my mother’s mother and aunt came to visit from another city and as usual I hid in the toilet and was literally dragged out to meet them.

Reason? I was not beautiful ant talented like my parents and two elder sisters. It took lots of counselling from my family to make me go out. My school played a great part to develop my self esteem. Their love and concern made me somewhat a little shy.

After father’s sudden demise I had to take a job. There my colleagues played a wonderful part in restoring my courage becoming little out spoken.

Though I was always very comfortable and jovial in my close friends, my sisters and my uncle.

I’m still not comfortable in public speaking. My first reaction be to hide in the bathroom but age and experience has taught me that if it’s necessary to take a stand for a right cause and right person I would not shy away comfortable or no comfortable I will speak my mind out.
