Very soon my blog will update the counter to 50,000 hits. I dedicate this Haiku for the purpose.  The haiku is written in such a way that if you combine the starting letter of each word, it forms fifty thousand. And the Haiku thanks you all for making this happen. It’s a heartfelt joy and thank you to each and every one.

The Goodness Dilemma


good-as-bad

In the fleet of time,
While life got hard,
Celebrating the disconnect,
The good got bad.

One missed goal,
Hundred still achieved,
Picky society,
The good got bad.

My own life,
My own rules,
Because I say so,
The good got bad.

With the pressure unwanted,
Grew weaker mind,
Though it’s still good,
The good got bad.

All the praises,
Are now the complains,
Life is moving on,
While the good got bad.


Tagging this poem for the Daily Post Prompt: Facade. Good or Bad, it could just be a Facade!

The Mirror’s Fate



Indian Bloggers

This post is written for the daily prompt word, ‘Unfinished’.


Long ago in time, there lived a mirror which was visited daily by hundreds and thousands. It was believed that the mirror had a life. It was believed to house some sort of soul inside it. It had an ability to show things in a beautiful way. No matter how perfect the object seen through the mirror was, it always used to beautify it by adjusting the lines, colors, tones etc. Some used to say the mirror was cursed for it never saw beauty in anything. Some used to say the mirror had a boon to make anything look beautiful.

One fine day the community decided to place this mirror in front of another mirror. One huger mirror was built and finally held in front of it. You will not believe what happened to the mirror.  People were amazed to witness the scene. What happened was….

The Void



Indian Bloggers

fire

From the lights of sun,
Glows the entirety,
Presenting the days,
Glows the locality.

air

Prison the winds,
Prison the air,
Fools you around,
Escapes everywhere.

water

As the water flows,
Changes no color,
Lucid and transparent,
You own it or rent.

leaf

Housed by the soil,
Food and the bed,
The land lushes green,
Even and serene.

 

circle

Under this even share,
All equal and fair,
Originates numerous lies,
Rests the dirty human game.

The Celebrity Dinner



Indian Bloggers

indispire

This post is written for IndiSpire Edition number 136. The prompt given is:

If you had 6 chairs on your dining table, which celebrities would you invite to dinner and why? #Celebritydinner


It is a warm Sunday evening, dining hall calling for a celebration. I have been waiting for my five guests while the soothing flute recitals are being played and vegetarian delicious food being cooked.

Here is my list of invited, expected guests. They will be here in no time!

Number one, the father of Computer Science, Alan Turing.

alan-turing

He is the one I adore and worship. He gave life to computers. He streamlined engineering well before in time. There are so many topics I would want to discuss with him starting from the concept of state transitions, enigma, AI etc. Though he is no more, I would still want a seat for him. Keep his works / books on the seat along with a picture and feel his presence.

Number two, film director, auteur, producer, screenwriter and music director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

sanjay_leela_bhansali

I have been fan of his movie narration. Though lately they all have tragic climax, they connect to the heart and leave a lasting effect. The speak the love out loud. I would want to discuss about his creativity and how he brings all that to work. He definitely is a perfectionist!

Number three, novelist, screenwriter and film producer, J. K. Rowling.

rowling

I would like to thank her for giving Harry Potter Series books, which was a significant part while growing up. I would like to discuss about how she creates and links even little things to make the plot so lively and curios.

Number four, cricketer, M. S. Dhoni.

dhoni

The captain cool. I would like to thank him for giving us so many wow and proud moments. One who knows how to deal the deals. The only one whom I like from cricket, sure has a lot of questions on how he works in a team.

Number five, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi.

namo

He is the one who has brought hopes in politics and to the country. I would like to thank him for his dedicated busy schedule for working towards the progress of the country. The real life role model.


Well, there goes my list. Do you have one as well?

Need of Knitting Needles


Three Line Tales (TLT) is a challenge put forth by Only 100 Words. The challenge is to write a three line tale for the supplied image.

Here is my take for the Week Number Thirty Three:

tltweek33

In the beginning, we learn from life lessons and experiences.

In the middle, we learn life is a roll of opportunities.

In the end, it’s about how the open end becomes beginning of something beautiful!

 

We and Almighty


eye

The muddled up mob,
The complicated psyche,
The language of anguish,
The seek for happiness,
But,
He said, “there is a twist,
Wait for it!”

The days of no clue,
The zig’s and zag’s,
The many open opportunities,
The seek for happiness,
But,
He said, “there was already a twist,
Didn’t you see it!”

The morals on the grounds,
The thrashed lives,
The unspoken solitude,
The seek for happiness,
But,
He said, “it’s still not late,
Please see it!”
