Love in Fibonacci



Indian Bloggers

The Fibonacci Sequence (Also known as Pingala Series) is the series of numbers:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, …

The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. The sequence starts with 0 and 1. Adding (0 + 1) is 1. So the third number in the series in 1 and so on.

Below is a poem which has the Syllables per line in Fibonacci Series. Off course the poem is not infinite. Considering the empty line as 0, Syllables per line are: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 13.

Three significant and immensely necessary skillful values you want to impart to your kids or the next generation to sustain in this world. #Values

Here are the three Skillful values for the kids of upcoming generation:

  • Technology is not life
  • Technology! Is not life
  • Technology, is not life

Technology is not life
You will see many gadgets along you grow. They will be in need along the ride. They are the support system of life. But they are not life. The aim of life is to use technology only to increase the comfort level.

Technology! Is not life
There is life outside. Talk to people. As much as possible do works by interacting to people. Make friends. Learn the values. Help the needy. Get the works done online only while in critical need. For technology will not teach the life lessons. There are beautiful people out there!

Technology, is not life
Technology comes with a comma not a period. Use it to bridge the gap. It must act as connector between two. Use technology to travel. Use it to explore. Use it to learn. Use it to invent. Learn, write and share!

Love Miracle


love-miracle

You gave me a Hope,
To live and to fight,
To trust in miracles,
To smile with no reason,
And above all, to stay happy!

I will slap you hard,
Only to ask,
Where were you until now?
To hold you tight,
And to feel the warmth!

You added those missing colors,
That aura to feel happy about!
You added meaning to my life thereafter,
That taste to get addicted with,
You are now my happily ever after!

The box had letters to everyone holding what future would bring.

There was no way found to open the box, neither breakable, only there were historical stories heard leaving behind curiosities and questions.

For no one knew that god had kept one letter in the box which said “As you make it!”

Just when everything started looking fine, the phone rings.. [Build a story]
#TringTring

The link and stories submitted by others can be checked out HERE. 


It was her engagement and a gathering of associated family and close friends. There was a delicious black current cake as a witness of celebration. She had got some awesome presents and day was going just fine. Just when everything started looking fine, the phone rings. It was awkward because she had stopped using that SIM from a long time as it had some unwanted associated memories. Moreover the call was from an unknown number.

She was hesitant enough to pick the call. ‘Why did I not destroy this long ago?’ was the torturing question in her mind. It was her old dedicated SIM to whom she had assumed was love of her life. She did not wanted it to be him, the long past love, for whom she had spent months to overcome the sadness. He had longed for a break up in spite of all her begging’s and he never told a reason for the case. The ring from unknown number had freaked her out as she had finally moved on and engaged to another seeking true love.

Her hand had an engagement ‘ring’ which was joyous and cell phone which was giving out a ‘ring’ which made her miserable.  This guy, with whom she was engaged, who already knew her past clearly noticed her anxiety, came running to her and exclaimed,

‘Oh! It’s me who has called you to your old number from my new number! I want to change your every sadness to happy ones and I want to start with this. Until we get married we shall interact using this contact and make better memories. Let’s replace old ones with new fresh and blissful ones.’

She silently had a few tears.

This story is written for Sunday Photo Fiction: 08 May 2016. The task is to write a short story of 200 words or less for the supplied photograph.

It was a park for all. It was a recreational place for everyone around. The best part of the park was every block around and nearby was allotted some space in the park where people could maintain it in the way they need. Swara had built a little play home there where she and her friends used to spend a gala time in the evenings. The park stood for unity.

Lately, a major industrialist had claimed the place to set up one of his industry and the park was to be demolished. The discussion led to fights and slowly most of the people around had given up the fight. In few months with increasing protests and no maintenance, the park stood as a waste land. Swara’s play home had broken pieces left. With time, the land remained in controversy and untouched.

Past many years, Swara had won the constituency elections and she had some decisions to make!
