365 days Writing Prompt: Silver linings

Write about something you consider “Ugly” — war,violence, failure, hatred–  but try to find a beauty , or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

War,violence,failure,hatred, all of these things cause a lot of dissension in us humans. We can if we sincerely want prevent it from happening.

War in my mind causes the most damage,it kills innocent people,destroys the sanctity of life, injures a lot of people beyond repair, if we humans can set aside our differences by peaceful means, this world would be a much better place to live. War is not the answer to settle our differences think about some countries destroyed because of war,their women and children maimed for life, what was their crime other than they happen to be the citizens of a war torn country.

Some countries have more weapons than they can use, why may I ask? Were we created to be destructive, what can we gain out of this misery, do we feel proud of ourselves when we watch children crippled for life and worse yet crippled and orphaned, just to show we are powerful, will there be a phase in our life when we are no longer capable of using these killer weapons, will it make us realize after all that destruction and horror, when we are left to agonize and wonder how could we participate in this horrible crime? 

I hope a day will come when war will be a thing of the past, we’d realize we are no different from the rest of humans. The color of our skin is light or dark depends on where we live, the same applies to languages, way of life , food and other things.

We are same otherwise we laugh when we are happy, passing of our near and dear ones makes us cry, we have our likes and dislikes, we eat what pleases our taste buds, we listen to our favorite songs and watch our favorite movies, we read, write, though the language is different our expressions are not that different.

Is it not possible to build a world where we love each other ?

DP Writing challenge :Mind the gap Post by Ranu

I have a strong feeling  against movies that have far too much violence. I have witnessed the trend towards violence in kids as young as nine years old.Some imitate this in real life. I have taught nine year olds and I have seen how they’ve changed. Once I asked them to write stories without adding violence in it. They complained it was the best thing. Thinking it might be because boys love fighting and they prefer to write fiction where they can include violence, when I asked how many girls would like the same thing,to my utter disappointment all of them favoured it.

Hindi Movie Review Post by Ranu

The name of the movie is Jyoti.It is made in Bollywood.There are some fine actors in this movie.The problem here is the same old story of step mother’s treatment towards,the step son.I am not sure how a two year old can survive all that opium mixed with his milk daily. I am not a physician,but the question does arise in my mind,how this is being done to an infant and the father doesn’t have a clue.

There are too many villains in this movie.The step mother,her helper,then the step mother’s son and his evil friends.The movie is crowded with evil people,yet the man of the house is totally unaware of all this. The victim i.e the son of the previous wife gets married to a beautiful woman,who magically changes the crazy man into a sane human being.

The movie is full of violence,I don’t think it is necessary. It is not a good one to be shown to younger generation. In a world full of violence in real life.The producer and directors can help a lot by not having so much violence in their movies.

I watched the movie on youtube because of my two favourite actors.
