Tagore song posted and translated by Ranu

Dear mother,

I have come with high hopes

Call me close to you

Do not send me away mother

I have come with high hopes

Mother do not send me away

No one wants to be poor and lonely

I want you to accept me mother

I only want to sit beside your feet

I do not want anything else

I only want to call you my mother

If you send me away

Where will I find a home

where will I weep and roam around

There I see the dark clouds, difficult days

I have come with high hopes,

Mother do not send me away!


DP Daily prompt: Pens and Pencils

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

When was the last you wrote something substantive — a letter, a story, a journal entry,etc.— by hand? Could you ever imagine returning to a pre-keyboard era?

I still use my pen to write in my book and afterwards I transfer it to my post, I find it easier this way. I think it’s better to use my hand and fingers whenever I can which can be a help for my writing.

Although I do not write letters very often, I do send cards to my friends and family  occasionally. It helps to write legibly and a  hand written note is more pleasing to the eyes. It is just my belief.

I have a lot of pens on my desk, I always use them to practice my handwriting.


365 Writing Prompt: Show and tell

You’ve asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of school children on the topic of your choice. Describe your presentation.

My presentation is about SOFT DRINK.

My presentation targets adults and not children. Children consume soda because we the adults give it to them, without thinking about the ill effects of this beverage. My intention is to make the adults aware of it , so that the children will not be exposed to this harmful drink.

Here is a list of ten reasons to avoid soft drink:

1. One can of soda contains ten teaspoons of sugar. After a long consumption of this beverage it can lead to diabetes, weight gain and other health problems.

2. Soda contains an acid which interferes with the bodies ability to absorb calcium, this can lead to osteoporosis, bone softening and also interferes with stomach acid which slows down digestion.

3. In diet sodas aspartame is used as a substitute for sugar, it is more harmful than regular pop.It can lead to  health problems like multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, diabetes and emotional disorders.

4. Most soda contains caffeine which is linked to some cancers, breast lumps, high blood pressure.

5.Simple tap water is used in soda which can contain chemicals like chlorine,fluoride and traces of heavy metals.

6. Harvard researchers have found soft drinks linked to obesity.

7. Sodas contain High Fructose corn syrup which causes long term health problems.

8. Soda has no nutritional value, it’s an unnatural substance that harms the body.

9. Soda has high sugar, sodium and caffeine. It dehydrates the body, over a long period of consumption it can cause chronic dehydration.

10. Drinking soda regularly causes plaque build up on the teeth which can lead to cavities and gum disease.

As we can see soda is responsible for a variety of problems to the human body, I feel the parents can find something better for their children to drink and themselves too.
