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!

(Shaphalata)   Success by Rabindranath Tagore

There are times when I wonder,    deprived of work

my time is wasted morning and afternoon,in fact the whole day.

No my lord it is not wasted,all those moments___

You have accepted them

O my God. My mind is

enveloped with thoughts of your creation

you have awakened the seeds by letting them sprout,

you have helped the flower to bloom.

You have transformed the flower into juicy fruit,

I am sleepy tired and lying lazily in bed

thought all my work is left undone.

I woke up in the morning opened my eyes;

saw, nature was ready to greet me with all its splendour.
