Daily Prompts- A right to protest

How can anyone impugn the right

Of people to stand in protest

To protest against the way of thinking

Thinking which makes one person better than the other

Doesn’t give any reprieve to the weak in the society

That leaves the fallen to suffer without a thought

The thought that might is right or

That, if I have the privilege, I can abuse it

This is the time to stand up and be counted

Counted among those who raised their voices

Voices against oppression and inhumanity

Rearrange the framework of this society

And make it better

Make it kinder and equal for all

In response to the following prompts;




Expenditure, Reprieve, Continuance

Tale Weaver – #278 – Dirty Windows – June 4th.

Michael is the host of Tale Weaver


Dirty Windows are a fact of life. Some windows we constantly clean and some we don’t.

Write this week your response to what you might see through your windows, perhaps the unclean and then the clean.


There is a layer of dust and grime

Covering the once pristine surfaces

I look through these grimy windows

And all I can see is dirt and ugliness

It is the fault of all the accumulated dirt

That my view is obscured and distorted

It would take some effort and labor

To wash out the grime of ages and clean

The glass through which I see and observe the world

But without this effort, I am stuck behind

This grime laden view, much like the bias

That some people wear over their minds

The blinkers which stop them from seeing

That we all are equal, we all are important

That grime and this dirt both are optional

Both can be rid of, with a bit of hard work and thought

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 138- Our roles

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Welcome back to another week of creativity!


“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players. They have their entries and exits” famously said, Shakespeare.

Shakespeare got it all wrong. Life is what we choose, and everything else is just existence.

Well, I just noticed that Shakespeare has not used the word “life” anywhere. The Master knew what he was talking about.

All you need to do is just think about how the above lines gel with or rub against your thought process. Then, start writing and there you are with your piece.


We came

We saw

We conquered!

Or did we?

We come, as in, are born but have no choice in where and when.

We live a life which, for the early part, is pretty much pre-decided for us. Then there comes a time when we are free to make a choice about which direction our lives will/can take.

But this is not an open choice even then. We still are dependent upon our circumstances, economic and social.

As we mature, we adapt to the life we are living and the roles thrust on us. Some of these we take willingly and some are again a product of situation and circumstances.

I guess all this is leading to the conclusion that Brad was right after all. We play the roles which we find ourselves in, during our stay in this world. Like actors, we perform and we exit when the curtain closes.

The choice lies in how we perform our roles. We can always choose our path, and our choices define the sort of human we are!

I decide what I’ll be

I decide how I will behave

I am responsible for my choices



Instigate trouble or not- Fandango Friday Flashback

Sharing a post from 5 June, 2019 as a part of Fandango Friday Flashback.

We have the power to do good

Influence people for the better 

Or we can instigate trouble 

Exchange our halo for the 

Pitchfork the devil carries

Its up to us to decide what we are going to be

We can surprise even ourselves 

By the choices that we make when the time comes 

Let’s not forget this truth in 

The hustle of our everyday lives

Daily Prompts- Worship

You decide

Who you worship

Who is your God

Forget the law or the data

Talk to your heart and soul

The inner place where all feelings come from

The central apex around which your spirit revolves

The societal trapping, traditions all are like

The bark of the tree, just an outer covering

The heart knows who to revere

Ask your heart

Who do you worship?

Data, Law, Elite

Fandango’s Provocative Question #72- Something Exciting!

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

For this week’s provocative question I’m going to try to shift your focus from the depressing to the exciting by asking you this simple question:

What is the one thing in life that you are most excited about right now? Why?


As Fandango has said himself that these are depressing times. With the pandemic on one side and social unrest on the other, it is difficult to get excited about things.

But being the resilient and optimistic person that I am, I try to find the silver lining in the proverbial cloud.

I feel excited about my personal achievement of losing weight steadily. I now weigh less than I have weighed in the last ten years. For me, who has had to struggle with extra weight all my adult life, reaching this weight is a great milestone. I do plan on losing more and am happy if the scale keeps on moving backward, even if slowly and gradually.

Another exciting thing to look forward to is going home to my hubby when things are better here in Seattle. This going home will be a big change as my daughter’s Doctorate degree is finally nearing its end. She will also be moving back! So we will leave the US of A and go home to Pakistan. As I said a big change. Hopefully, my daughter and grandson will adjust quickly.
