Daily Prompt: Lucky Star

Today is your lucky day. You get three wishes, granted to you by the Daily Post. What are your three wishes and why?

I once read a quote by someone, “If wishes were horses beggars would ride on them.” If I think of beggars, their wish most certainly would be food, shelter and clothes. These  three things are not easy for them  to achieve. Hence they go from door to door in search of food, clothes and sometimes shelter if they are really lucky.

Since I do not fall in the above category, I wonder what I’d wish for since The Daily Post is so generous. My three wishes are : 1. Interesting prompts, 2. Writing exercises, 3. Availability of images.

Interesting Prompts: motivates us to write longer posts that will draw more readers.

Writing Exercises: It is something I picked up from Lilly Ferrin’s , five sentence fiction. It works well for me. I get more readers.

Availability of images: when I started blogging, every time I wrote a post ,there were a lot of images by Wikipedia relating to the subject which made my work much easier. We don’t get them anymore, it’s not easy to get images to fit the subject I write about, some of them do not allow me to copy their images.

These are my three wishes, I’d be glad if my three wishes can be fulfilled.

DP Daily Prompt: Generous Genies

Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?

This is exactly what I was looking to become a generous genie now emancipated from my restrictive lamp, now I can give my three wishes to whomever I want. I have to think hard and long who best deserves my three wishes.

I have an idea, one day I saw a picture of a little girl in a mud house, she was beautiful and innocent, if I can give her the three wishes, I’d be very happy.

I know from watching her on TV no one else is as deserving as her. She is poor, doesn’t get the kind of nourishment her body needs, yet she has a sweet smile on her face.

I imagine her waking up every morning  wondering is there someone in this world  who can provide some food for me,perhaps her call is not answered and she goes to sleep hungry. I feel her pain,I know what hunger is, this month is fasting for us,we fast eighteen hours a day and cannot wait for sunset so we can eat something.

This little girl doesn’t have the luxury of thinking she’ll be able to eat whatever she wants after sunset.For her the sun never sets and there is no genie to magically give her food.

Every time I see her picture I think of all the food that is wasted around the world and the poor soul craves for the food that is thrown away by all these people who have so much.

I will definitely give my three wishes to this sweet girl who does not complain but only smiles!
