DP Daily Prompt: All It’s Cracked Up to Be

pad2015-s1.png (308√ó60)

Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you would have hoped.

This incidentally is something that happened in my school.We the grade four teachers were planning to stage a play. There was no problem selecting the minor characters in the play. The problem was who can we select for the main role.

Keeping in mind there were five grade four classes and each teacher might want to have one of her pupils play the part.

I took a cursory glance at all the boys in my class. I was certain I have the kid who was perfect for the part. To see their reaction , I said , “I know I have someone who will be the best for the part.”

Immediately all hands went up , “Miss please tell us who is it?”

I did not want the boy to have his hopes up, I simply replied, “I can’t the other teachers may not agree with me.”

For the next few days I kept hoping that one of the teachers’ will notice.

Sure enough one of them came to me and said, “I have thought about it, you have the boy who is suitable for the main part.”

I was thrilled not only someone from my class was picked for the role, also I was right he was the only one fit to play the part! ūüôā

DP Daily Prompt: I’d Like To Thank My Cats

IMG_0857pad2015-s1.png (308√ó60)

You are receiving an award–either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored,and what would you say in your acceptance speech?

Right now I’d probably like to get an award for the kindness we show towards our two adorable Siamese+Himalayan breed cats.

Let me tell you it’s not easy to get their approval day in and day out. They do not appreciate us because we give them the best food in the market , it has to be more than this, we must regularly clean their litter, give them some private time when they like to cuddle each other. We humans are only allowed to watch them and tell them how lovely they are.

They give us time too, we have to play with them when they want to and continue as long as they think it’s worthwhile to them.

Everything in the house belongs to them, if we try to tell them, “No it’s not.”

They let us know we are wrong by the pitch of their Meoow, so we say okay it’s yours but do not take it apart.

Raphael and Gabriel keeps us on our toes!

Deception by R.Tagore, translated by Ranu

Lest you feel I may understand you easily    is this why you  pretend to be what you are not__

outwardly you are a picture of happiness             inside you  are filled with tears.

I understand dear,I understand                            this deception

whatever you want to express                               you refrain from saying.

Fearing that I may grasp you with ease                  you  avoid giving me any clue___

lest I try to include you in a group                             you act indifferent and unfriendly.

I know dear, I know dear                                             your deceptive trick___

the path you would like to take                                   you do not.

You want much more than everyone,                        is this the reason why you leave____

you avoid showing disrespect ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†is this why you pretend to play and immerse your beggar’s bag?

I fathom,I fathom your                                                                 pretense___

What satisfied everyone                                                                failed to satisfy you.
