Tuesday 20 word story prompt: Rejuvenation


Celebrating the silver jubilee reunion, sitting in their classrooms, indulging in nostalgic memories, a spirit of euphoric rejuvenation enveloped them.


What rejuvenates you? Do share! Have a lovely Sunday!!


A to Z – Fun Math!

This is a fun poetry I tried, where the words move in an alphabetical order . The theme is Mathematics! Hope you enjoy it 🙂


Algebra brings confusion

data elicits frown,

geometry halves identity

justification keys logarithms

matrix now operational

Pythagoras questions rationality

solid transversal union

vector watched ‘x’

yelled zero!

The broken arm!

In response to the daily prompt : Broken


That sunny noon

I heard myself croon

Cycling along the path

after a long bath

Friends and I fret

arguing over a bet

Agreeing to treat

the one who beats

To some ice cream

by the stream

Thus began the race

I tried to keep pace

The road had a bend

as I began to descend

Not wanting to lose out

I furiously pedalled about

Crash! bang! echoed the sound

as I landed on the mound!

Bruised legs, a broken arm

sending all into an alarm

All for some ice cream

by the stream!! 😦

The Last Page

Press the rewind button of your life, to a few years back, till you are in your high school. Then press the stop button. Pick up any note book and turn to the last page. What do you see there?

Well, I asked you to do this exercise, as today I just happened to open my daughter’s book. This is what I found on the last page !

Looking at this transported me back to my school days. Reflecting back, I fondly recollected my rendezvous with the last page of various note books. 😉


  • Secret messages in code words exchanged between me and my friends.
  • Countless games of tic tac toe, name place animal thing.
  • Chatting with friends in the form of Q & A, when the teacher turned to write on the blackboard 😉
  • Throwing blobs of ink from the fountain pen (no gel pen those days) in the centre of the page , folding the page and making unique symmetrical designs.
  • Writing down the note regarding HW or test.
  • Scribbling my name in different fonts.
  • Trying to write with my left hand
  • Attempting to perfect my future signature 😉
  • and many more ……..

I am sure the last page of our books unfold many emotions, mischiefs, stories and memories.

Children will always be children……..only the last page stories differ!

Lo behold! The saga of the last page

unravels sweet tales filled with

excitement of the young minds,

of the umpteen scribbles,

fun games played,

secret missions accomplished,

tête–à–tête with friends,

teacher’s caricatures.

A world of fantasy

that gets obscured with the passage of time


when chanced upon many birthdays later

brings a smile to your face

and opens nostalgic floodgates!






Meet Mr. Popular


Some people are born lucky, some with a silver spoon, some are blessed with a gift of the gab, while a few have an intellectual chip in their brain yet others are bestowed with good looks .

I do not warrant an introduction. I am the universal darling of the masses! People all around the world adore me and always look forward to my arrival.

My name has a special significance. I guess, at the time of my birth, the planetary positon of my stars were in a perfect sync with the astrological charts, which explains my acclaim and fame. My name means:

Fun, feast, happiness, relaxation, rejuvenation…

At the mere mention of my name, I see a twinkle in the eyes, the face lights up to a perfect smile and the excited mind sets out to chalk out an itinerary of ideas. Be it the young or the old, I am a hot favourite with all. I am the most pampered among all my siblings. They all envy my status, specially my immediate junior. My personality calls for a celebration with family and friends over a feast. I spell a sense of glee among the youngsters hanging out with friends. Did you know that many find me therapeutic too? I give a much needed refresher and breather to tired working feet and minds from their relentless rut, to unwind and relax. I am sure you all agree with me that a healthy body and mind make a healthy living. So, I use my magic potion to wipe away the rust accumulated during the week. I detox and declutter their minds and homes and infuse them with positive energy.

Seriously I revel in all the fanfare, adulation, and attention showered on me. I have been voted the most popular and preferred personality of the universe. No prizes for guessing my name…….

I am a SUNDAY  🙂 :-)…….I can see you break into a smile at the mention of my name, am I right?
