Tagore Song: Nishithe ki koye gelo, translated and posted by ranu

I am confused

My heart spoke at midnight.

I know not what it said

Was I asleep or awake?

I hear it at work,

returning home,

Or when I am

On the road.

It secretly rings

In my heart every moment.

I know not why

Those words

Unnecessarily pains my heart.

Is it fear, is it victory

Are  those words

Repeatedly telling me

No more, no more?

Is my heart telling me,

In various tunes

“Let us go far away.”

Are these words ringing

In my heart or in the sky?

I know not what my

Heart is telling me!


DP Daily Prompt: Bone of Contention

DP Daily Prompt: Bone of Contention

Pick a contentious issue about which you care deeply about—it could be the same sex-marriage debate, or just a disagreement you’re having with your friend. Write a post defending the opposite position and then reflect on what it was like to do that.

My disagreement with my friend is equal pay for equal work. My subject is Tennis. This game is played by men and women all over the world, there are grand slam tournaments where men and women participate and are paid according to how many matches they win.

This is where I have a problem, men play best of five sets to win and women play best of three. I think there is a big difference in the matches played by men and women, on that basis I   think   women players cannot expect to be paid the same as men because they do not spend as much time on the court as men. My friend disagrees, she thinks the pay should be equal.

Now the Tennis association has decided to pay men and women the same amount. I think it’s wrong.

I wrote what I thought about the financial issue and am pleased with it.
