DP Daily Prompt: Careless Whisper

Regrets? Yes I have some. I always feel that sometimes what I feel doesn’t always stay in my brain ,but I cannot wait to let it known the moment the thought enters my brain.

It doesn’t make me feel any better, as my conscience starts working full time, telling me it was a dumb thing to do.

When I was  very young my older sister often ridiculed me in front of her friends. She’d question me where I was, she thought if she constantly reminded me I do not study enough, like her I’d sit with a book 24/7. I was never one to hide behind a book, I did my own thing I played, watched my mother cook, I sat with my dad and asked all sorts of questions about anything that came to mind.

My sister would sit with her books all day.Now that I think about it , she didn’t really study all the time,she certainly wanted to impress my Dad.

One day as usual she started criticizing  about my study habits, I was fifteen at that time, she had already completed her masters degree, when she wouldn’t keep quiet, I said,”One day I’d also get my masters degree and when that happens ,no one will ask a few years later what class each of us got to make a comparison, they’d only say,good for you Ranu, you also got the degree we are proud of you.”

She was so surprised she could not say another word. Did I regret for being so bold, I did not, I was proud of myself for finally telling her off!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. It brings me to reflect on how things can look so different, so much less serious, when viewed from a distance. Your line, “no one will ask a few years later what class each of us got to make a comparison,” made me think of this.

    Great amounts of time go by, and what once seemed, perhaps, so bad, can now be viewed differently.

    All good wishes,


    • Thank you Robert, your comment most of the time feels like you are a great philosopher,you think before
      you write your comment,would reading Iqbal’s writings be the cause of your thought? If so you have successfully achieved
      what Iqbal wanted and he’d be very proud of you. I too am proud to have a friend like you.

      • Dear Ranu,

        I am neither a great philosopher nor an Iqbal expert. Indeed, on the discussion group, I always struggle to understand the points raised, and I never sense that I do.

        Dear Friend, your posts bring up interesting and insightful points!

        All good wishes,
