Many countries celebrate Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be– and why?
If I could dedicate a holiday to my distant relative, I’d choose the person who was not my relative but was very good to us. We called him uncle, his wife treated my mother as her real sister. Even after she died uncle did not abandon us . He invited us to stay in his house when we visited Dhaka city(Bangladesh).
We stayed in his house for days , he always welcomed us. He was much better than our own uncles who did not care much for us after my father passed away.
If I could dedicate a holiday to a distant relative, I’d choose my distant uncle.
I have copied the male and female voices to show how it sounds.
I found this song this morning, I had to listen to it a few times to figure out the lyrics. It’s a song that evokes a melancholic mood.
This is how it begins:
Oh mother it is evening
It’s evening hold me
In this deep darkness
Let your tenderness
Drown and cool me
It’s evening mother
Take it back, take it back
Everything is lost somewhere
Let this scattered life
Gather in your darkness
It’s evening mother
I don’t want my life to be visible
Anywhere outside you
Let your night unite
My life’s beam of light
Surround me and kiss me
Only you, only you
Take whatever is on my mind
Oh mother make it yours and
carry it away!
Tell us about the last time you had a real,deep, crying-from-laughing belly laugh.
I can remember only once when I was very young, my two older brothers were looking at a magazine, they saw something and started laughing, I came along and without knowing what was so funny that made them laugh, burst into a hysteric laughter. It was so bad I could not stop myself. My eldest brother came and took the magazine away from my brothers, he threatened to hit us if we didn’t stop. My brothers stopped but I could not stop laughing.
It was so bad my tummy was hurting. After that incidence I do not recall having such a fit again.
