Tagore Song:Akaash jurhey posted and translated by Ranu

I hear the musical note

all over the sky

your name is ringing

in the middle of the stars

I know not when it came down

and touched my fate

its peaceful shower washed my pain!

On that dark night

my mind merged

with the star-filled sky.

This is how I want

my heart to unite with your name

and be busy with my life’s work!

DP Daily Prompt: Handmade Tales

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Automation has made it possible to produce so many objects—from bread to shoes—without the intervention of hands(assuming that pressing a button doesn’t count). What things do you still prefer in their traditional, handmade version?

Automation has its place in our lives, we are living in an age when time is of utmost importance, some of us leave one job to go to  another, if that’s the case who has time to cook . This is when ready made food comes in handy. Assembly line products are welcome most of the time.

Having said that, I do like to cook food from scratch when time permits, no matter how easy it is to buy a TV dinner that we can stick in the microwave oven and within minutes we get a hot meal.

There is a certain charm of cooking  food by hand,for starters it won’t smell the same or will have the same flavor.After a while one gets tired of ready made food. I know I will. When I cook I have the privilege of making it spicy or use less spices according to how I feel that particular day.

While automation gives us freedom to do other things that require our immediate attention, when we cook food ourselves we make sure it is something tasty and not harmful for our well-being.

365 Writing Prompts: Pat on the back

Tell someone you’re proud of, how proud you are.

It is difficult to describe just how proud I am of you. Your remarkable dedication to your family, your work  and the students you teach is matchless.

You meet deadlines after deadlines with such calmness, makes me think you cannot belong to an ordinary class of human beings.

When God created you He knew why He sent you down among us, He equipped you with tolerance for the people you’ll come into contact with, brilliance, to deal with humans like us who lack the gift you possess to help us understand the complexities of life  that we face from day to day.

I needed to know someone like you to realize there are good people like you who care and that not everyone is unreliable. I am truly thankful to know you!
