Writing Prompt: Freaky Friday

If you could be someone else for a day,who would you be,and why? If that seems too easy,try this one: who would you like to have spend a day as you and what do you hope they’d learn from the experience?

 

If I could be someone else for a day I’d like to be Philosopher,poet and thinker Iqbal. Since this is make-believe I’m imagining him alive.

He has written volumes on very important things that affects all of us.I’d like to learn his way of thinking,whether he read a lot and some of his brilliant ideas were from that. I’m assuming he read a lot, if not was he  in a position to know the situation in those times just by observing or in meetings with like-minded philosophers or from reading the Qur’an.

I’d like to learn about his philosophy and what does he think of our generation, are we on the right track or are we too materialistic.

One day is not long enough to study a mind as rich as Iqbal’s.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for interesting post. I simply wish I could cease being this person, with all his foibles and vices.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. Oh,that would be awesome-Iqbal is one of the finest poets of his time and is still so widely read and respected.Do you know how to read and write Urdu or HIndi ,Ranu?

    • I can read Urdu,never had the chance to learn Hindi,I understand it perfectly it’s so close to Urdu and also helps if one knows Bengali.
      I don’t know the Hindi alphabets.
