Daily Prompt: Dear Mom

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Write a letter to your mom.Tell her something you’ve always wanted to say, but haven’t been able to.

Dear Mom,

When I was a little girl, I loved listening to songs, I wanted you to hire a teacher for me, so I could learn to sing. You refused, you thought I would give up my studies and will be illiterate.

You hired a teacher for Yasmin and bought her a harmonium as well. I wish you’d give me the same opportunity as you gave her. I know it’s too late now and you might say,”Let bygone’s be bygone’s “, sometimes I feel sad thinking I could not learn something I loved because you did not trust me.

I know you had lots to worry about after dad passed away, you had to take care of everything by yourself. I’m sorry to bring this subject again, it only gives heartbreak to both of us.

I will try not to bring this subject anymore, I do love you for everything you’ve done for us.

All the best to you mom.

Regards,

Your daughter,

Ranu  🙂

365 Writing Prompts: Seven wonders

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?

My seven words are: Love; Trust; Honesty; Friendship; Sharing; Peace; Unity.

Love erases misunderstanding.

Trust is an important word, if you trust people there will be no arguments.

Honesty is always the best policy.

If we are friendly we’ll have no enemies.

Sharing: whatever one has it’s good to share it reduces poverty.

Peace: What can be achieved by peace cannot be achieved by war.

Unity: Lack of unity is the cause of all the dissension in the world.

Did not look right!

You prefer to trust Minu

More than Me

Mother please trust Me!

DP Daily Prompt: Mirror,Mirror

pad2014.png (388×120)

When I look in the mirror , I do feel like a person on the inside.  I am honest. I do not pretend to be anything I’m not.

I know appearances are often deceptive. I’ve seen pictures of people who look innocent but you find out they are serial killers.  But there are others whose face tells the story. From years of deceiving and cheating people their face shows the evil person.

I always think of the saying, “do not judge a book by its cover.” While that is true partially, the opposite can be true also. It is not really helpful either way. Some faces look deceptively innocent and others do not. Only thing I’d say is to know about the person by how he/she behaves at work,in public places or when in the company of friends. They may do certain things that are suspicious.

For the sake of our safety,we need to know more about a person before we decide whether we can trust them.

jan. 20th-365 days https://sabethville.wordpress.com/2014/01/20/365-days-jan20-breaking the law/

Last time I broke a rule was in college. We didn’t mean to but circumstances made us do it. There were four of us, we got permission from our teacher to watch a movie in the movie hall. The condition was we had to have a chaperone  with us.  My classmate said her aunt would go with us. We were ready and  waiting for the aunt to show up. After almost an hour my classmate got a note saying the aunt was unable to go.

Since we were ready and waiting by the college gate we made up our mind to go. We were not sure of one of the girls who was unpredictable. We clearly told her we’d be going without the aunt,if it was okay with her. She promised it was.

We set off on the assumption that things would work out.It was a very hot day,we waited for an auto rickshaw,and got one after walking a few yards. We reached the movie hall,got our tickets, and sat down to watch the movie. Everything went well. We came back happy we managed to watch the movie without the aunt.

Back in our dormitory we found the unpredictable girl restless. We asked her,what was wrong. She said nothing. We went about doing our work. Suddenly one of us was called by the teacher. We didn’t know why. Soon we found out the said girl went and told the teacher we’d gone without a chaperone. We were summoned one at a time and chastised for breaking college rules.

Then she told us to assemble in the auditorium. Sister Joseph Mary was livid. She said everything she could think of. She praised the girl for being honest. We were angry.We were not in trouble,but we learned an important lesson,not to trust the girl anymore!
