Writing Prompt: Prized Possession

Describe an article you were incredibly attached to as a child. What became of it?

As a child I was incredibly fond of my hair. I wasn’t exactly sure how to take care of it. I let my hair down, combed very seldom, my dad gave me the nick name,”Haza booti” I didn’t know what it meant,so I’m guessing it means, “The girl with the messy hair”.

As I grew older I continued to have the problem of how will I fix my hair,I bought some hair pins but they couldn’t hold my hair, it was too bushy.

Then I bought ribbons, but they were the object of criticism, they were not matching my dress. So I discarded the ribbons.

What can I do now I thought, an idea came to me, I should try and form into a plait. This went for a while.Pretty soon I had enough and chose to let the hair down.

Now my hair is still where it’s supposed to be,it’s more manageable and I am happy with it.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. We all have prized possessions, as a child. Perhaps as an adult as well. When I look back on childhood, I remember the peace, in the moment, that seemed to exist. I miss that.

    All good wishes,
