Independence, Anniversary, Quotes, Black Cat , Blue Sea Awards – I Can WIN, not really!

Just if I weren’t this busy, I would exactly know when I started this blog, but most probably it was on 15th August, 2015. Hence, this home of my ramblings is an year old. Yay.

Another great update is that there is an award due, and I have a chance to win. How did I get in? Well, this was a long process, and I’ve beaten 99,453 other WordPress blogs and made it to the final four. There are US $5,000 to be won. Sounds good, right? Too good to be true, and you know it.

Still, I assume there’s competition going on, and a fellow blogger on WordPress has been kind enough to nominate me for it. You can find the fellow blogger in “This side of the world.”

The thing with this world now, you don’t play without the rules. The rules here are:

1. Anybody nominated can nominate up to seven other bloggers. Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.

2. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

Question – Answer Time. Here I go:

Question. What is the silliest funny memory from your childhood?

Answer. If you want me to share how I accidentally helped my friend to a few stitches on his head, all the spectacles of mine I broke or the beatings I took from my mom. All the tears I let flow in public, and some other embarrassments. I am not sharing anything. No way.

Question. If you have a day to enjoy everything at Mall for free, at which section you’re most likely to be?

Answer. Malls? I will probably ask my mom or my younger brother or anyone to take my place, and do what they wish to. I will quietly return home.

Question. You wake up and you find that the world has turned into your favorite movie/novel fantasy. What would it be and why?

Answer. I have never been able to choose a favourite novel. I like a movie called 3 idiots, in which the protagonist uses a vacuum cleaner, and “All is Well!” for a successful child delivery. Won’t it be too bizarre in the real world?

[Disclaimer: It was necessary to upload the image of the award on this post. Since, I didn’t. I think, I’ve been disqualified. Huh.]

Now that I don’t have a chance to win an award. I won’t nominate anyone as well. Why let friends win prizes, you can’t? Sadistic me.

Before I went to hibernation, I had to complete a 3 day quote challenge. The occasion is of Independence, GLI is an year old, and am writing. So, why not write 3 quotes relative to the scenario?

For descriptions, read this.

Quote 1:

When I discover who I am, I’ll be free. ~ Ralph Ellison

Quote 2:

Merciless criticism and independent thinking are the two necessary traits of revolutionary thinking. ~ Bhagat Singh

Quote 3:

To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. ~ Nelson Mandela

I wrote a piece called “A Dream Of Independence“. If you want, please read and reply to it. If not, reply to this. No? Then, pay me through PayPal. Every million is appreciated. Thank you so much.

“Death is a beautiful woman!”

I see you in the mornings. I see you during nights. I see you in pitch dark. I see you in light. Unlike, everything else, I know I’ll get you. O beautiful woman, I know I’ll get to hug you. For you aren’t a mirage, you ain’t false. You’re purer than my mom’s care for me. You’re beautiful, you’re serene. However long is the wait. I rest assured, you’ll bring me peace. My heart says you’ll cure my pains. You’re my eternal heal. My wounds, my soul awaits you. Eagerly life awaits to kiss you. Myself awaits to feel your tender love. My soul awaits…

People mistake you an enemy, but wise know thy as a friend. Us fools see you as an ending, but only the lucky ones understand, you aren’t an ending, but another beginning. Help me turn the cycle of my life, my soul awaits…

I wonder if another life awaits me after another. I wonder why I exist. My heart doesn’t tell me why it beats. Neither does I know for the reason I breathe. A wise man let me know you’re beautiful. I will go by his words, and see you as a beautiful woman sitting in front of me. When my quest for respect is over. When I’m satisfied with lessons in life. I will be happy to be in your arms, O death!

However, it’s not my terms you act on. But, here’s a request. If thy want to embrace me today, give me another day to play. For my desires are incomplete, dear death. Let mine beat some more, please death. Let me live once more, before I die, dear death.

I was thinking of you death, and I realized how wrong I’d been living. If you give me another chance, I will be better. Until then, “Thank you” death. My soul awaits…

I don’t know what kind of post this is, but I thought I should share. Rahul Singh thanks you for reading. The title idea came after reading an answer by the author of The Alchemist. You all know him, right?
