DP Daily Prompt: I Believe!

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Three things I believe : number one is, I am a guest of this planet , while I’m here I must do everything to help mankind. How much have I done is hard to know, this much is true everyday I’m alive I must do something good even if I talk nice to my neighbor,say thank you to the mailman who delivers my mail walking miles and miles of rough weather,slippery streets, strong winds and heavy down pour. I want him /her, to know I appreciate his daily hard work.

Number two on my list is the cashier at the Supermarket. I watched the girl scanning the items and I had quite a few, I told her I know she must be tired, in reply she said,”my back is killing me.” I felt bad and wished her a nice day. I believe it is true when I say a nice word the person on the other side feels good to know someone out there sympathizes with her.

There are a lot more things that are true, since I have one more, the last one on my list is; I agree with the American who said, “You are here only for a short while, so stop and smell the roses.”

Things that I believe are false is number one: when the politician tells us he’d scratch GST.

The second thing that I believe is false is when the tailor assures me my clothes would be stitched in five days. He knows he won’t and I hope it will be done. Guess what ,he lied.

The last one is when my brother tells me he’d write a long email. I know he won’t keep his promise!!


Lucky: Flash Fiction

Lillie McFerrin Writes

Salim was a bright young man,he loved to study,he helped his classmates with their homework,whenever anyone needed help in anything Salim would volunteer.

His parents loved hearing everyone in the neighborhood praise their son so much, Salim did his job thinking it was his duty , he wasn’t interested in getting any remuneration.

He became quite famous by his good deeds, parents of girls in the community were interested to have him as their son-in-law, Salim was not interested to get married, he felt he had plenty of time to tie the knot,he gave little importance to marriage.

Salim’s parents were eager to get him married, they were anxious to have a grand kid, the parents without Salim’s permission selected a bride for him,according to them she was very pretty,educated and comes from a wealthy family, what more could anyone want, Salim gave in and was married within a month.

Salim’s wife’s personality was completely opposite to his,she was rude, uncooperative,she argued with him day in and day out,his friends and relatives felt terrible, they said among themselves, that a man like Salim should have been lucky, how could he have such a horrible wife?

Writing Prompt: Show and Tell

I have been asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of young school children on the topic of my choice.

My topic is “A Sari”.

What is a sari?

The  dress the woman in the picture is wearing is called a “Sari”. It is six yards long and forty-five inches wide. A matching blouse and a petticoat of the same color enhances the beauty of this gorgeous dress. The petticoat which is an under garment is worn to help tuck in the  sari , is like a long skirt which reaches up to the ankle.

The sari needs six yards for the pleats in the middle and for the shoulder. It comes in a variety of colors and the material is silk, or cotton or nylon.

The blouse comes down to the waist,it has short sleeves, long or no sleeves. It is something  one who wears it, decides.
