Do you play an instrument? Is there a musical instrument whose sound you find particularly pleasing? Tell us a story about your experience or relationship with an instrument of your choice.

I love a few musical instruments, I wanted to learn to play  harmonium, when I was thirteen, my mom thought it was a bad idea, she was afraid I’d neglect my studies. Later on I did learn to play it, I wasn’t able to continue due to lack of time and pressure of studies.

My husband bought a piano for me to satisfy my desire to learn to play it. This time there was a lot of things I was involved with, I could not concentrate on learning to play it. I did continue off and on, now I find I spend more time writing and reading, and  I do not take time to practice the piano.

I love the sound of violin, I have watched this instrument played by various actors  in several movies. There is not much of a story to tell,except I love the way it sounds.

365 Writing Prompt:A Mystery wrapped in an enigma

Tell us something most people probably don’t know about you.

There is nothing unusual about me, I am as normal as the person next door. I have my likes and dislikes like anyone else. My looks resemble my parents as others do.

My food habits resemble the people where I’m from, it is not different. One difference in my food habit maybe is, there are foods I do not like, the ones I like I can eat day after day without getting bored. The word “bored” is absent from my vocabulary. There were many occasions when I was confused when the kids I taught would say, “We are bored”.

I asked myself Why? There are so many things we can do, why do they say they are bored, is it because they picked up the word from somewhere and think it is cool to say, “I am bored”?

Blue is my favorite color, I always chose blue when I bought clothes for myself. My siblings don’t like my choice of blue all the time, but I’m very stubborn, they were not able to change my mind.

I have very few friends but the ones I have  are for keeps. I’d do anything for them, provided it’s not something unachievable.

I love learning languages, I think it’s an exciting thing to do.

When I watch matches or games, I always pick my favorite otherwise I do not find it interesting. My husband once said, “Why do you have to pick a favorite, enjoy it?”

I love poetry and music I can spend a whole day reading poetry or listening to music. My favorite writers are Tagore and Iqbal.

I have very few hobbies, one is reading novels written by my favorite authors and two is spending time writing for my blog.
