What a witty suggestion or say, a challenge by my better half to compose 1 post for these prompts. 
So, here’s it, I launch my post, “What A Coincidence – 15 Prompts, 1 Post..!!”. 
Narrating the tales of their glorious past,
Trying to recreate a flavorful cast.
Incidents that seemed too irrelevant,
Stories that are no longer prevalent,
Still trying to attract like a magnet,
And willing to make some sense on this planet.
They tried to grab hold of her dreams and aspirations,
In the name of their mighty traditions.
Making her feel her desires so tentative,
And leaving her depressed and so negative.
She broke down into crumbs,
Sting in pain, she fell so numb.
Those long stories of the long lost pride,
All appeared made-up and falsified.
In the times when she should have stayed focused,
Not just her wishes but existence was questioned,
The flower that should have been pampered,
Stood like a detached leaf all shattered.
P.S. – In response to the following Daily Prompts –
3.  Sting
6.  Crumb
7.  Mighty
8.  Leaf
10. Pamper
14. Launch
15. Witty

A month of their marriage,

A time to celebrate and cherish togetherness,

instead fights kept them engaged.

Shelf

Posted: March 17, 2016 in Daily Prompt, Haiku Poems

The newly wed went shopping,

All that they could make consensus on,

was nothing but a ‘Book-Shelf’

Quotes or say proverbs are some well known sayings &/or phrases that sums up a lot in a few words depicting the established facts and reasoning.

Ever since my early childhood days, I had seen my mother using such quotes more than often. She had an intrigue habit of talking in such a manner. By talking, I precisely mean she used to convey her message through such intelligent formation of words. That was probably one of her many ways of teaching me the difference between the good and the evil, helping my understand life in a better perceptive. It’s okay if I call it as her wise upbringing technique.

Below are listed few such quotes, sayings, proverbs, etc that I have grown up hearing.

  • “Beeti tahi bisari de, aage ki soodh le” –

    Whatever has gone, was a thing of past, don’t sit grabbing hold of that, let it go and prepare yourself well for the future so that there is no regret left behind. Especially when I ever had a bad exam or say, something not-so-good happened and I sat regretting what had happened, she was the one who came to my rescue and showed me the right path through such one liners. “Forget what bad has occurred to you but always remember what it has taught you”, was what she says even today.

  • “Ab pachtaye hot kya, jab chidiya chug gyi khet” –

    In english we put it as “There’s no use crying over the spilt milk”. What has happened, has happened. It can’t be changed, it’s irreversible, so instead of focusing on what worse has happened and repenting, we should focus on what can be done to come out of that situation. How can we mitigate the damaged occurred and restore or further enhance the benefits in our favour.

  • Ek chup sau ne harawe – 

    It literally means that ‘One silence can lead you to hundred victories’. The proverb in english goes like “One silence, hundred rejoices”. It’s better to be calm than to speak evil. Harsh words uttered can only hurt the other to the extent that can never be mend, so its better to be silent. If you do not win the argument (war), you at least win the hearts (people).

  • “Pothi padhi padhi jag mua pandit bhaya na koi,
    dhai aakar prem ka padhe to pandit hoye”

    This is one of the very famous quotes by Saint Kabir that means “Reading books, everyone died, but it is love that made them all wise”.

  • “Stay Positive, Stay Happy, Stay Blessed” –

    This is my dear darling mother’s sure shot formula for a leading a happieeee (some extra e’s for the extra happiness) life. That is the sequence in which it happens, positivity ultimately leads to happiness.

  • Live for Others.

    The phrase that describes my mother’s life in entirety. She always says, “Everyone lives for their own sake, but if you want to live forever, live for others.” Life lived for others is a life not just spent but well lived.

This list is never ending. There are situations when my mother and I are talking in this quote (secret-code) language and my siblings are at times confused, at times irritated and  while for the rest of the times, they join us.

P.S. -This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.

The Daily Post Prompt  –Resolved

When I was a child,

I used to take some resolutions,

not because I felt the need,

but as everyone around did.

Whilst growing up, I realised,

Why they make resolutions?,

when they know they won’t

be able to make through it.

That was the time, I decided,

I had to stop making resolutions,

The decision that I made,

still stands “Resolved”

Take me to the Moon

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take Me to the Moon.”

How long shall I go for him?

or how far shall he go for me?

isn’t a question too big,

as we know, we aren’t two ‘You’s’ but one ‘We’.

So whether it be me or him,

and whatever place it be,

Both of us shall win,

as we’ll be together as ‘one’.

The places might shift,

The distance might increase,

but we shall never drift,

as along we shall run.

To all places on this planet,

or to the earth back from moon,

I shall accompany you everywhere,

since it’s a bond in unison.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Well, I Never….”

I trusted her,

Take a piece of advice,

Don’t trust her.

‘For You, With You’

Posted: July 12, 2015 in Daily Prompt, haiku

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Born to Be With You.”

The wait is too long,

but once we meet and come together.

it will be for eternity.

Once it happens,

I wish to love & live,

For & With ‘YOU’.

I wait for the day,

when we come together, coz, I’m

‘Born to be with You’.

Fly on the Wall..!!

If I could be a fly on the wall,

I would follow wherever you go.

Howsoever fast or slow.

Be the place big or small.

A place that might be very common,

Or a place that’s not too known.

Be it too near or distantly far.

Be there prevail peace or war.

I ll just need a wall to stick,

And from there I’ll wink,

And stare and gaze at you,

All round the day, not just hours few,

Till evening dusk from morning dew.

So shall break this waiting queue,

And I’ll always be nearest to you.

If being a fly keeps us together,

I’ll happily be a fly for ever and ever.
