Her father had posted her a letter; a letter to the loving daughter who was studying in the far away land.  She kept postponing the reading to tomorrow every day stating she was too busy. Today she had dropped it in water while taking out form her bag and no words were visible. It was all gone.

Who knows! May be some things are untold. Or it is that they are told but unheard? Was it meant to be so? One thing is true though that “We are never too busy!”.

Questions to God

This post is written for 68th Edition of IndiSpire topic:

“Do You Have Questions for GOD?”


Dear God,

I don’t know with what intentions you made us evolve with a stomach, now that’s okay, but I hope there was an alternative to fill it!

Though food, clothing and shelter are three basic needs, food stands out as the foremost need for all. Money has acquired its worth mainly and most importantly because of food; I guess and hope I am not wrong in making that statement.  What if the money was not the driving factor for one? What if hunger was self fulfilling? Had it not been better if we all had naturally grown by consuming air or whatever from nature? Like no one worries and we just grow!

It’s funny that it would arise many other 100 questions to be answered and so many things would be different than it is now. Self motivated experts would have been hassle free from food related worries and spent time in innovation of numerous things as no one would have bothered about food consumption.

Trust me God; things would have been very much different. Why that you never thought of doing so? Or is it that I am missing out something from your plan?

Dear reader, what do you feel? Do you support me?

Pen, Paper and Keyboard


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pens and Pencils.”

When was the last time you wrote something substantive — a letter, a story, a journal entry, etc. — by hand? Could you ever imagine returning to a pre-keyboard era?

quill-pen Pen-and-Paper keyboard

When “pen and paper” were introduced for the first time, there was a lot of dis-agreement to use as against the popularly used media “quill“. Now, My generation has seen one more transition of pen and paper to the “keyboard“.

I am lucky that neither i belong to pen and paper nor the keyboard generation. I belong to the one who has seen the transition. So, its natural to use both of them. My frequency of use of the both the media is almost the same.

My personals are pen and paper. And my presentations are keyboard. I still prefer pen and paper and suggest the use of keyboard! Funny!
