Yesterday was Father’s Day in many countries.If you could dedicate a holiday to a more distant relative, who would it be —- and why?
Not everyone is fortunate to celebrate “Father’s Day”, there are a lot of factors that prevents us from celebrating this particular day.
I had a distant relative, we called him uncle,he was a very sweet person, we made fun of him, we talked to him as if he was our friend.He always had a very serene face, he gave us the feeling that he was my mother’s brother.
I remember after my father died we came to live in Bangladesh for the first time, he was the only one who came to the airport to receive us. My mom was very pleased she thought at least she has a distant cousin who genuinely loved her and her children.
On his behalf I’d like to have a holiday which I’d name as ,”Uncle’s Day”, dedicated to my precious Uncle who was always there for us.
I became interested to be a blogger after I read a friend’s blog. I did not plan anything,I wrote whatever came to my mind. I got some good ideas from another friend.This got me going for a while. I was running out of topics for my blog.Then came the advice to translate Tagore’s poems. At first I had some rocky roads to climb. I have always listened and loved Tagore’s songs.His poems,there were a few I memorized and found a lot of pleasure reciting them, off and on. To translate his poems to me was not an easy job to take on.I felt what’s the harm,if I get stuck,I’ll give up this idea altogether. Amazingly enough my friends loved my translation.The comments I received were very encouraging. I am still translating them.
I did not have a goal in mind. I noticed I was actually having fun blogging. I have a few followers and they religiously follow my blogs. Now with Daily Prompt I’m in a position to write about various subjects.There are a few I get out from my memory bank.it gives me a lot of incentive to keep on writing.
I am not sure of my achievements,this much is true. I am getting better at translating Tagore’s poems.I am using my brain to think of challenging topics to keep it interesting for me and my followers. I have started reading a lot.The books I bought before with the intention of reading are not collecting dust any more,I’m actually reading them.This is one achievement of mine I am proud of.
I don’t waste my time watching TV to get rid of boredom. I conclude by saying,blogging has opened up my horizon. I am thankful I am busy. My time is occupied by reading blogging and more reading.There is no room for the devil to make it his workshop,simply because my brain is not idle!
