Writing Challenge: I have a dream

When I was a kid, say an elementary-school girl, I had the dream of being a bride. Even I had a real person in my mind to be my spouse-my cousin. Now, my childhood dream has come true, and I am married to that exact person. It is interesting that I never said a thing about marriage to the groom of my dreams. Even, when we were high-school students, we just used to have simple hi and byes and nothing special. Thank…

Nikita's 9 letters to Captain X...II

Dear Captain,

I bet you have seen the sunset for many times. Just now I was sitting on the bench in the garden of the hospital and witnessing the sun to set downhill. After a tired day, Mr. Sun looked pale and climbed up the top of the mountains in the west laboriously, like an old man who got cardiopathy limping…

i wont give up till.......

Till you grant my wish, I won't give up my demand

I will reach the Soul of Souls, or be buried in this land.

When I am dead and buried, open my grave and see

Smoke rising from my corps, by my inner fire fanned.

Show Thy face to the people, awe-struck and radiant

Man and woman will cry out, at Thy smallest command.

I am tired of this life, jealousy eats away my heart

Without a kiss from your lips, I end my worldly errand.

In search of those sweet lips, I… Continue

Writing Challenge: I Have A Dream

     Dear EC friends,this is my first time to join a writing challenge here. And believe me, it took me 2 days to write my blog.  

     When I was a child my dream is to become a teacher. My teachers in my elementary grades influence me a lot. I see teachers way back then as perfect person. But when I grow up, ambition of becoming a teacher was replaced to become a nurse. I like to see their uniforms, all white from head to toe. That's my only reason behind…

The waiting to departure is the hardest feeling which makes Hussan different from others .Hussan sees everything in a dissimilar way , he has talked to himself since he approached forty, always heave sighs as if the weight of the world lies on his shoulder , saying” it's time to stop before the end of the road , to ponder a lot.

What a nice challenge! I feel like taking it and speak…

Writing Challenge : I Have a Dream

As a child, I didn’t have any dreams.  I wonder, “Why I didn’t have any dreams”.  May be, I was content with my life or I didn’t think much about my future. Whenever teachers asked about my ambition or goal, I used to say something that pops into my mind at that time to satisfy my teachers. When family friends and relatives inquired about my ambition, I used to say “Ï don’t have any”.  My parents comforted me that I will have big dreams when I grow up.

Now, my dream is to move up the…

Writing Challenge : I have a Dream

I have a Dream

When I was a child, my dream kept on changing. One day, I wanted to be a policewoman, another day a soldier, and yet another day, I wanted to be a doctor. Living in a village with a few modern facilities such as electricity and television (at that time only a few houses had a television), my exposure to the world was through books and teachers. To be a…

Writing Challenge ~ I Have A Dream

This week marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech. MLK delivered his speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC 50 years ago. 

I visited the exact location where MLK delivered his famous speech just a few weeks ago with my family. Taking the kids to the site where MLK delivered his speech was a very memorable experience for me. I took short video clips of my children telling me their own dreams for the future. Thanks to people…
