Share your world 2014 Week 20

If you could go back and visit any time period, what time would you travel to and why?

I would like to go to early 20th century, My father’s father has written about his life and I have read it, he passed away in 1980, but we loved him so, I would like to see him growing up:)

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?  This is a time for you to dream and have fun.

Ours was an arranged marriage (1982) and we are really lucky  to have found each other, and my  first wish would involve him and my children . My second wish would be that never should women fear rape and such humiliations. There will always be problems in life and my third wish would be that our grandson will always have the courage to face and overcome them, he is now only 10 months:)

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

Water

If you watch TV what are your favorite three television shows?

I don’t watch TV much:)))

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Actually last week my father’s elder passed away at the age of 91, we will miss him, but I am very grateful that he passed away peacefully and never suffered any major health problems all his life, except this last one month.  Next week I am going to Mumbai to spend a few days with my aunt ( his wife, she is 83) and cousins. It will be nice to spend some time with them

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

  1. I’m happy to hear your arranged marriage worked out well for both of you. I agree with your second wish, that’s one we need to come true. I hope you have a nice visit with your aunt and safe travels.
