Blogging 101: Day 3: Say Hello to your Neighbors

Today’s assignment: Follow five new topics in the Reader and five new blogs.

I found three new neighbors. I am delighted. I will look for more. My computer ceases to function at odd times, just when I was about to post my reply to one of my neighbors it went kaput and I lost the fourteen -year-old who was really interesting.

I think I will post this to show I’m really trying.

Write a letter to your 14-year-old self. Tomorrow, write a letter to yourself in 20 years.

Here is my letter addressed to my 14- year-old self.

Dear Ranu,

How are you, and how do you feel living in Comilla, Bangladesh, did you register in the local school, I’m sure they have a school just for you?

I’m sorry to hear there is only one school in your new town where medium of instruction is English, ย rest of them do not.What a shame, I suppose you’re enjoying staying at home,you are not, because your brother hired a tutor for you to study at home?

I’m glad you told your brother, you do not need a tutor ย that you can study by yourself. Really, is it possible? Now that you are preparing for the high school exam privately, is it tough or you think you can handle it?

Nice to have confidence, but beware over-confidence is not a good thing. I will let you concentrate on your studies for now. I hope to find out about you in 20 years.

Best wishes to you.

Kindest regards,

Ranu ๐Ÿ™‚

Blogging 101, Day Four: Identify Your Audience,

Today’s assignment: Publish a post you’d like your ideal audience member to read and include a new-to-you element in it.

Posted and translated by Ranu.


It is evening oh my dear mother

It’s evening hold me

In this deep darkness

Let your tenderness

Drown and cool me

It’s evening oh my dear mother

Take it back, take it back

Everything is lost somewhere

Let this scattered life

Gather in your darkness

It’s evening oh dear mother

Let not my life 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 and make it yours

And carry it away!

This song and its translation is for all my friends, bloggers and others to listen and enjoy the work of a genius from Bengal, i.e. Rabindranath Tagore.
