365 Writing Prompts: New internet order

All the world’s countries have decided that the internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net– do you accept? if so what will your platform be?

This seems a very interesting prompt, run for Prime Minister of the internet of my country.

Here is the problem if I accept it just for fun, Politics whether it’s internet or real as is happening in countries now, is not a very enticing job for me. I watch all the commercials on TV , how one candidate brings out  all the negative things, about the other just to get ahead in the polls.

Internet politics will not be any different, keeping this fact in mind, I’ll say, Thank you ,but no I do not accept.

Tagore song, Posted and translated by ranu

Dheeray, dheeray ,dheeray bao ogo utal hawa

Slowly, slowly,slowly blow oh restless wind

Midnight’s flute is playing

Be calm , be calm oh restless wind

Slowly, slowly blow oh restless wind

I am the lamp’s flame, for you

I fearfully stay awake

I am the flame

I fearfully stay awake for you

Whisper quietly what’s on your mind

Oh restless wind

Your string of verse in the

distant forest

lands in the corner

of my house

I have something to say

to the early morning star

accept those words secretly

in a whisper oh restless wind

Slowly slowly slowly blow

oh restless wind

Midnight’s flute is playing

Be calm, be calm

oh restless wind!




DP Daily Prompt: Full Disclosure

A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch : you can’t turn it off . Do you accept the chip?

I think I won’t accept the chip, simply because whatever they’re thinking if it’s about me I’d rather not know. Their thoughts maybe negative or positive, I won’t know until I accept the chip.

I remember our school librarian tried to sell me the Newfie dictionary, the price was more than I wanted to pay, he said, “you’re missing something very important, you’d never know what the people are talking about, Newfie’s have their own language, they call it Newfanese, Isn’t it a great idea to know this language in case you hear it and don’t know what is, it’s all in this dictionary.”

His sales pitch didn’t work for me, I told him,”What I don’t understand cannot hurt me”.

Similarly the chip sounds tricky, the people might be thinking about me, good or bad, I’d like to take the safest route by not accepting this device of the mad scientist.
