Radiantly Yours

( Written for Weekend Writing Prompt #331 – Radiate )

  “An ordinary man destined for unordinary deed was born on 2nd Oct, 1869 in India. Slender but hearted bigger than the Alps, he never got frightened to defend truth, a reason for him to radiate“.

(35 words)

(My humblest tribute to an ordinary person who did what at his times even the Saints couldn’t be expected to do. And, whose ethos of non violence and truth shall be visualized as nothing less than unthinkable done by a Saint by the people about a century from now.)

Barrister MK Gandhi, the man of the millennium, our father of the nation….

Weekend Writing Prompt #331 – Radiate

Good evening and see you next time.


Guidelines-

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Word Prompt- Radiate

Weekend Writing Prompt #331: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 35 words using the word “Radiate”.

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below).  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.
  • A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc).  If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap.  Remember, this is supposed to be fun! 🙂

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

    JM, a lovely tribute to Gandhi, a worldwide hero and example. ❤ US civil rights icon, Dr, Martin Luther King, was a disciple of Gandhi. The Civil rights Movement non-violent protests and marches were modeled after those in India!

    1. True, that famous ” I have a dream” corroborates that fire for freedom and equality like mk Gandhi showed here. Thanks and good day to you.

    The most perfect personification of the word, ‘radiate’. He radiated and inspired all, to bring out that essential goodness that exists in all humanity and is gradually getting lost .Thank you for this, especially on his birthday. A timely reminder.

    1. “..essential goodness that exists in all humanity and is gradually getting lost..” so very true and wise of you. Thanks for the concern raised.

Why One More Blog??? This world is full of ideas, ideals, thoughts, stories, anecdotes, and so on, As a tiny creature of this vast universe, I too have, Some unique, Some similar to others, And some probably inspired by my elders, Some sweet, some bitter, Sometimes spicy too, Some close to heart, Some closer to mind, Sharing of the same, May be of some value to others, Most of the targeted audience however, May not possibly come across, But I have to bring the same in black and white, No, no, it’s not कीड़ा Wriggling to come out of me, Neither literary diarrhoea nor mental indigestion, It’s rather my responsibility to share my experiences, What I have received from this great society, What I have felt about it, And how I was dealt with, Will attempt to download what has been uploaded throughout the life, Before, yes before… my memory may start fading away, Before L of YOLO (You Only Live Once) comes to an end, Else, the whole thing will go away, Unsaid, unlettered, unsung…sheer waste, Let others get some ideas, To make their L a bit better, It’s up to them, Let me do my part…
