Tagore Song, posted and translated by Ranu

O The Good Old Days
Alas how can one forget the
good old days of yester year
It’s all about seeing each other
Recalling the things that made us happy
we picked flowers early morning
How can we forget the
Sitting on the swing,
swaying under the flowery tree
There came a time when we were separated
We had no idea where we were
One more time dear friend
Come again
we’ll talk about sad and happy days
It will give us happiness all over again
Let us recall the memories of the good old days
to soothe our hearts!

Daily Prompt: Forgive and Forget

pad2015-s1.png (308Ă—60)

Share a story where it was very difficult for you to forgive the perpetrator for wronging you, but you did it–you forgave them.

My story is about what happened to me in school when I was seven years old. One of my classmates did not do her homework, she asked me to lend her mine, I refused, the bell was rung, I did not have enough time  as we  were required   to run to join the rest of the people for prayer.

When we came back to our classroom, the teacher asked to see our homework, I took out my exercise book and opened the page where I had done my homework, to my dismay the page was missing. When I ran for prayer my classmate stayed back and tore off the page from my book.

I was scared and did not know how I should tell the teacher, what happened. I went up to her and showed my book with the missing page. the teacher asked my classmate if she tore the page, at first she denied, when she was asked the second time she admitted tearing the page.I cannot remember if she was punished, I was happy that the teacher believed me.

Daily Prompt: The Full Moon

pad2015-s1.png (308Ă—60)

When the full moon happens, you turn into  a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe the new you.

I’m always a happy person by nature. A full moon to me means a joyous occasion, everything is bright, the dark night changes into a very bright sky, the earth, the people are all happy.

To be opposite of me would be to be an unhappy me  instead of enjoying the bright moon I’m sad, I’m cranky,I dislike everything around me . I sit and sulk, I stop smiling, I want everyone to leave me alone and I write poems that makes humanity cringe.

I’d rather write a poem that makes all of nature happy, like:

Come one come all the full moon is here

Let us celebrate with fiddles and drums

Wake up all of you let’s look and sing

For this is a time to be jolly and giving

Do not stop smiling, do not start sulking

For nature will invite the clouds

To cover the full moon and darken the sky

We’d be looking up and saying

Please clouds let the moon be free

So we can sing about the full moon with glee!

DP Daily Prompt: April 2nd

pad2015-s1.png (308Ă—60)

This morning I communicated with my blogger friends online. Although I’ve never seen or heard them I’m comfortable writing to them. There are so many options in English , the vocabulary helps, it is quite easy to communicate with friends using words.

I’m able to convey my feelings using words connected to feeling. In fact I’ve written a long email to my friend, who has no trouble understanding what I’m thinking . Sometimes icons are helpful to convey a message such as happy, unhappy.

365 Writing Prompts: Happy happy joy joy

We cry for lots of reasons:  sadness, pain,fear….. and happiness.When was the last time you shed tears of joy?

Almost every day I feel joyous. The very fact that the snow, winter, the freezing days, the ice on streets and pavements have run its course, that this unpleasant weather is on its way out, gives me relief and happiness.

Sunset at 4 pm is such a difficult thing to bear, I look forward to longer hours of daylight and warm sunshine with pleasure .

I am longing to see and  feel the fresh air without covering myself from head to foot, the green grass, trees covered with leaves, birds singing, announcing the end of winter and welcoming the arrival of summer.

This is when I say yes the happy days are here again!

DP Daily Prompt: Wall to Wall

pad2015-s1.png (308Ă—60)

What do you display on the walls of your home—-photos,posters,artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?

When we display anything on the walls of our house, we think of the room. Our living room walls are decorated with artwork, a part of the wall has pictures of birds, another part has animals, still another with flowers. We also try to hang pictures that goes well with the color of the paint on the walls. We try to create nature and how it adds to the beauty of the environment.

The dining room walls have pictures of fruits, vegetables and some gardens with trees hanging down with colorful fruits and vegetables.

The bedroom displays family pictures, there are portraits and single photographs showing different photos of children from the infant stage to the current.

The walls with the photos and pictures is to create happy memories of our family.

365 Writing Prompts:Cheering section

Do you have a mentor? Tell us about him or her? Are you mentor to someone else? Tell us what that relationship has added to your life.

I do not have a mentor, I really didn’t have one when I was in school. I always felt I was able to take care of everything myself, it worked out all right for me.

I was a mentor to someone at one time, she and her husband had jobs for a while, then lost the jobs because job situation was getting worse at that time.

She asked me once what could she do to get a job, I knew she had a masters degree in Mathematics, I advised her to register for an education degree, she agreed and did as I told her. Her friends discouraged her, they informed her, they didn’t think she’d get a job in any school even if she had an education degree.

They were wrong she was hired in a private school when she completed her degree  and was happy, she used to tell me about her job. I encouraged her not to give up because the salary was low.

I have no contact with her now, I am glad she listened and was doing well. She always thanked me for encouraging her.

365 Writing Prompts: Name that…you

Do you know the meaning of your name,and why your parents chose it? Do you think it suits you ? What about your children’s names?

My name is “CHAMAN,” it means a garden. When I think of a garden it gives me a feeling of complete joy.There are flowers, birds, insects, trees and oh so many more things.

The environment of the garden is peaceful, joyous, children playing ‘hide and seek,’ Mom resting and watching her pride and joy having a wonderful time.

My parents chose my name  immediately after I was born, I guess they consulted their friends and thought the name they chose was appropriate for the way I looked as a baby.

Garden reminds me of happiness,having a good time, pretty and so on. I was a happy child, I loved playing with my siblings and friends. I am happy and I love playing, this  means the name suits me.

365 Writing Prompts: life, happy,sleep!

Scribble down the first ten words that come to mind.Pick three of them. There’s your post title.Now write.

and, poets, reality, be, gone, life, sleep, eat, gone, happy.

You may wonder why I chose the above three words to write my post. My feeling is they seem to connect with each other.

There are certain things important in life such as: happy and sleep. you cannot be happy, if you are unable to sleep, for your body it’s necessary , after the day’s hard work your body needs rest, sleep is the best way of getting rest.

A tired body cannot be happy. I know when I’m awake all night I’m a very unhappy person, I value my sleep too much.

When I was in the university, my room mate suggested I should not go to bed earlier than my classmates, they will do better in the exam than me. I took her advice and studied till 2:00 a.m before my exam next morning. I was sick in the exam hall, my mind was blank I couldn’t recall what I had studied that night. I thought I’d fail, I was worried, luckily I was able to calm down and finish my exam.

From then on I advised my room mate, not to give me anymore pointers how long I should study, I knew what I needed to do well, it was to have a good night’s sleep before the exam.

I believe in the phrase,” early to bed,early to rise makes a person, healthy and wealthy and wise.”
