Aito Shoor Aar Aito Gaan “So many tunes,so many song”by Tagore Translation by Ranu

So many tunes and so many songs

if they stop some day

I know   you will also forget me that day.

So many tunes and so many songs

if they stop some day

I know you will also forget me that day.

How long will this life be

how many more auspicious moment

in spite of that I found you.

I also sang that song

for which I gave my heart.

I also sang that song

for which I gave my heart.

There is no harm today

I forgot everything.

You lose everything in this life,

I know you will forget me.

So many tunes and so many songs

if they stop some day

I know you will also forget me.

“The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini Post by Ranu

I read Khaled Hosseini’s, A Thousand Simple Suns and ,And The Mountains Echoed, each one was different. His first book,”The Kite Runner”,I finished reading an hour ago. My intention is not to criticize or applaud any part of the book.It is to write how I felt when I was reading it.

When I was a child I used to follow my two brothers to see what they will play next. It was not what I always thought,they changed their games ,on the basis of their own personal whim. One day I saw my brothers with some tissue paper,thread, little bamboo sticks. They were going to make their own kite and fly them. When they were playing with their kites,I thought it was a neat game. I helped them by holding the paper,I could not fly the kite,but loved watching my brothers.

When I finished reading, A Thousand  Simple Suns, everyone asked me is it better than the ,Kite Runner. I was not in a position to answer that question. Now that I feel I am, I have opted not to, but let them read and decide.

The kite Runner reminded me of those childhood days,when I watched my brothers make their own kite and fly them.  After reading the first few pages,I couldn’t decide whether I should continue or stop. I chose the former.I am not sorry I did.

It is commendable how Hosseini vividly portrayed some of the characters in the book. But then again we know there are good and bad people everywhere in this world.

There are three occasions in particular when my glasses kept fogging up. One was Sohrab’s earnest request to his uncle,not to send him back to the orphanage,the second one when Assef beat Amir mercilessly and Sohrab used his sling shot to save Amir. The third one when Amir prayed to God and promised he would never stop praying,will pay zakat,go for pilgrimage,he wanted God to save Sohrab . It was heartbreaking  when Sohrab said, ‘I want my old life back’.

I liked all his books. The Kite Runner, taught me about human nature and ultimately the lesson that if one sincerely asks God for help,he/she will not be denied!

DP Daily Prompt: Never post by Ranu

Since I read the daily prompt,I wondered what is it, I ‘ll never write about. I have a whole list of things,I like to write about. Which one can I safely erase from my list?

This is what I think I cannot and will not write about. It is my eating habit. I love food and I like the variety that is out there.How I tackle them can  be  frightening for all those health conscious addicts. It may scare the  daylights  out of authors of diet books.

I feel at ease knowing no one gets to criticize me. I read their books but when it comes to following, I keep me out of the picture. Good or bad ,I like my choice.
