365 Writing Prompt: A mystery wrapped in enigma

Tell us something most people probably don’t know about you.

There is nothing mysterious about me,I am no different from anyone out there. As a child growing up I was only interested in playing with my siblings. Studying hard was not in my repertoire. As long as I could get through I was happy. Who got more marks than me was never my fear.

I did notice my teachers and one of my siblings thought I could do much better in my school work if I put in a little more work.

I used to finish three hour exams in an hour. I remember the principal in my college once said, ” You know what your problem is you finish your your exams too quickly.”

This little advice to me went in one ear and came out the other, it made no impact on me.

Once my first cousin’s husband told me I’d never be as good as my sister. He was one of those people I disliked, I always ignored him.

I was sailing along the journey of life, never caring who said what, until I was in post graduate class. I woke up from my long slumber and realized I’d have to do well in this, which meant I must work hard, the moment this realization hit me I was a different person, I went to the library daily, I studied, I wasted no time playing or in idle talk.

I surprised everyone including my siblings.

I had very few friends, I was never interested to have many friends.The ones I had were my friends forever.

I loved reading novels I still do.

I love blogging, it gives me an opportunity to read the post of other bloggers. Besides blogging, I enjoy  cooking a variety of foods.

In my spare time I watch TV it helps me relax. These days the Wimbledon tennis championships are shown on TV, I’m having a great time watching them.

This is all I can think of writing about me. 🙂

365 days Writing Prompt: Dulled

You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that,once sipped will make one of your senses (sight,hearing,taste,smell,touch)super sharp—but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

I will reject the mysterious man’s potion, I feel I need all of my senses working as they should, if any of them is dulled, there will be serious consequences, I have seen people who have hearing loss, it is not easy for them to do their daily work, to help them they get hearing aid, which is not the right substitute because it has its flaws.

Hearing ,taste,touch,smell have their own specific duties, making one super sharp and dulling the others cannot work for me.

DP Daily Prompt: A Mystery Wrapped in an Enigma Post By Ranu

I am not a mysterious person.People who know me,treat me as a normal person. I do not pretend to be someone I am not. Maybe my on-line course participants do not know me. It is because we do our assignments and disappear. There is no interaction between us. Ones who know me  a little more than that are the bloggers if they read my posts.

I am a very uncomplicated person,what you see is what you get. I am unable to write any more.There is hardly anything to write about.

Using a potion to sharpen,one of my senses and dull the others,is something I will not do. And the worst part of it is accepting from a mysterious man.No I think I’ll prefer my senses to be normal. So many things can go wrong if I try a potion, which I know nothing about. When we are prescribed medicine by a bona fide physician,we are cautioned about the reaction. Whether our system will work the same as countless others.There is always a percentage of people who have adverse reaction,even though it’s a small percentage.Likewise the potion good or bad mysterious or not will have to be placed in the same category as the regular medicine,prescribed by genuine doctors,who have academic qualification and also have proved themselves worthy of practicing their craft.

When it’s a mysterious man, no one knows about him, it is highly dangerous to try anything he tells me to take. I will not try it,no matter what he says.It is risky to try something that will sharpen one sense and dull the others,is not something I will do.

Birth And Death by Tagore Translation by Ranu

Birth And Death            Rabindranath Tagore

It was only the other day I came to this world   I was an infant devoid of speech

I came like a foreigner to this earth

without any identity, I did not bring anything with me,

Rabindranath Tagore

only provision I had with me was sobbing.

Today   all the  love  I received from my fellow human beings

has managed to draw out all the songs I have in my heart,

On this earth O my creator you have taken very little space in my heart!

Instead you have fulfilled the wishes of the people with my songs.

Every day you assist me to present songs of rhythm and melody

still I offer you my worship  at the end of the prayer

I hope you will take me with love,

I am hopeful that you will remember when we part.

wherever you keep me on this earth your love will remain with me.

There will be brand new foreign residence  new people

they   will connect with  me with similar love. In the light of this love

I will appear in the world

and blossom in the new company. Attracted by love

all the mysterious glitter I have in me

will rise up in eternal juice,

they will come out running___  free from life

in the entire world of yours on the invitation of love

I will leave the perfume of new lives,

I will draw the shape of faces with new colours.

who wants to be in this blind  narrow hole of immortality

on this surface of the earth only in one form

to live!  In the new paths of death

I will  worship you in different worlds.
