Sundays in my City#8

It's been a long weekend here in Lucknow. Here are two kids finishing their homework on a quiet Sunday evening!

  1. They look very engrossed in their work! Happy weekend to you.

  2. It's been a short one for me. Good thing I finished my homework

  3. Just look at that concentration! Are they your children?

  4. Homework seems to be the same the world over.

    I was helping oldest granddaughter yesterday with homework. She ripped up three pages before she decided on the right answers. Then her father said she had to do it again. Oh well......

    Nuts in May

  5. I was so sad as a kid when I would have to do homework on a Im so thankful those days are long gone!

  6. Homework-- I used to dread Sunday afternoons because of it ;-)
    Happy SIMC. jj

  7. Oh, sweet picture.

    Happy Sunday.

  8. They do look very absorbed in their work.

  9. @CJ - They can do that when they want to....LOL

    @LilyS - My homework is never finished!

    @Grannymar - Yep, my two babies!

    @Maggie May - I KNOW the feeling

    @Sonya - Me too!

    @Amy - Thanks!

    @Unknown Mami - Like I said to CJ above, they can do that when they want to!

  10. Do kids have a lot of homework in India?
    I was reading how in Ireland 5 yrs old have a lot, I think too much, homework for that age.
    It's great kids go to school, learn etc. but they should also have free time to play and enjoy their 'child age' as long as possible...
    Have a good week ahead!

  11. Aww... How sweet. Brings back memories of what seems like another life now :)

    Dropping by from SITS.

  12. I wish that I could go back to that stage. I never seem to be able to finish my homework!

  13. @ Blogitse - The studies are quite serious here from first class on - so they have to keep up with their classes.

    @Reenie - I know, it was almost thirty years since I left school.

    @Rummuser - I know the feeling

    @TheBlondeDuck - I don't miss it either!

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.

The Curse of Poverty - Short Story

As the dawn light spread its fingers across the early morning, Rajji stirred uneasily.  She tended to sleep like a street dog - ever alert, with one ear open.  But she'd been tired the previous night and as a consequence had slept rather heavily. Her life was a constant struggle, filled with tasks and responsibilities. If she hadn't been careful, she might have been robbed!  She sprang into alert mode and clutched about her person.  No, everything was in place, the precious money was undisturbed.  Thanks to her employment with the bank, cleaning for one hour every morning, six days a week, she even had a bank account which one of the bank employees had helped her to set up.  What little money she had saved up was safe.....

She looked over her children.  Babu, her son lay sleeping still.  Muniya, her daughter, stirred, close to waking up.  But where was Gudiya, her youngest child?  Might have woken up early and gone to wander around.  Gudiya knew everyone around here and every…
