Pensieve

Daily Prompt asked:

World’s Best Widget You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?

I think I would build a Pensieve.

Pensieve Harry Potter In the harry potter films?

PC: imgarcade.com

If you are familiar with Harry Potter and a fan like me, you’d know what I’m talking about. Harry Potter Wiki describes Pensieve as

Pensieve2

The Hogwarts Pensieve

“A Pensieve is an object used to review memories..the collected memories of people who have siphoned their recollections into it. Memories can then be viewed from a non-participant, third-person point of view. Most Pensieves are entombed with their owners along with the memories they contain. Some witches and wizards will pass on their Pensive/ memories to another person, as is the case with the Hogwarts Pensieve.”

Dumbledore removes a memory

“Pensieve combining the words ‘pensive’ and ‘sieve’ – the latter is an object in which something may be sorted, drained or separated. It is derived from French, and originally from the Latin ‘pensare,’ meaning ‘to ponder,’ and in common English usage means ‘thoughtful’ or ‘reflective’.”

I would build a Pensieve. That would make decision making and rational thinking so much easier. I would keep its structure alive. I would make it possible for people to take their bitter memories out of their brain and store it in Pensieve. I’m thinking about how much better humans will function without any grudge. I hope it will make people emotionally and psychologically stable.

I know I am ignoring large amount of Pros and Cons but I’ll be back after I am done with all the feels of Harry Potter Franchise.

Daily Prompt asked:

Evasive Action What’s the most significant secret you’ve ever kept? Did the truth ever come out?

The most recent super serious secret that I have been keeping at the moment is my selection as one of the storyteller in 2016 Kathmandu edition of The Vagina Monologues.

I wanted to tell my friends and family about my selection way earlier, but I don’t know how they would react so I haven’t told a soul about either my audition or my selection.

This storytelling event is such an important opportunity for me. I will get to perform in a theater. I will get to enchant audience. I will get to send important aspect of women emotions to people. It will be great for me I think.

And to make my performance better, I have been participating in the Group and Individual Sessions every week. I go absent on Saturdays and I have been telling ‘group study’ to cover my sneaky absence. Also, I have been practicing in low voice at home – although the performance will need me to be really loud to be audible to the audience.

I have been trying to be as quite as I can about this whole event. I think there are some suspicion but I haven’t been asked anything as such. I think I will tell everyone next week. I’m still unsure how my family will react to stories about Vagina and Sex. We will be performing The Vagina Monologues on March 5th, 7th and 8th- marking International Women’s Day. And.. I think I am ready 🙂

Keep coming back again and again

Daily Prompt asked:

Karma Chameleon Reincarnation: do you believe in it?

I am not sure if I believe in Reincarnation or not.

I get jinxed whenever I pass a twin- the whole idea of one’s doubling just amuses me so much. But the whole dying and re-birth is just… I don’t know.

Reincarnation holds a very important aspect in our country and basically in our culture. The whole notion of giving in charity, doing good to others didn’t just immerse out of heart. It all came with the luring aspect of having a good life after our death.

I’ve heard my grandparents talk about how Human Form is the final forms of all life forms of living. 84 hundred millions to be very honest. After changing that number of life forms do you finally get to be a human. That is why, be a good one– my grandfather used to say to us all the time.

There’s even a tradition of sweeping one room of your home or deity place with flour. The Priest calls the spirit one last time after death and it is said the spirit leaves a mark on the floor to give us a sign about which form they will take in next life.

I don’t know. It’s culture. It’s what they do back in village.

According to my village people, my grandfather has taken the form of a bird this time. I don’t know if this is true or not. I have no proof. I just know that he taught us to never- never kill a bird, be kind and have a worthy existence. And if he is a bird, he would have the most fateful and loving soul- just like his name ‘Karma’.

Daily Prompt asked:

Shape Up or Ship Out Write a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

To Mr. Fear inside the mind,

Stop bugging Maiya with so much awkwardness, paranoia and what not. She’s in her 20s now for God’s sake! Let her have her share of confidence and the opportunities she deserves to explore. It’s all in the mind but what can anyone do when a jerk like you has stationed on the mind for so long?

I know what your problem is. You fear Maiya’s success. You know how good she is, you have seen how well she can do. You’re just what they call “jelly”. Shit headed emotions like you is what makes aspiring humans kill their confidence and hope. I wish you could have helped turn Maiya’s fear into strength. But no, all you do is leave her looking like a dumb folded girl while she is waiting to blossom with her uniqueness.

SHAME ON YOU FREAK!

I hope you die of shame that you made an able human being act like a mute, no sense doll. I hope you die with regret that your shame is what has caused her to cut off her relation with anyone, to not give herself a chance she deserves, to not explore and evolve.

But importantly, I hope you start regretting on the reason you were created.

To every hopes, dreams and relations lost because of the fear that refused to  leave, I hope fear falls in regret with its own fear.

Signed with curse,
The Laughing Medusa

I decided to say goodbye

Daily Prompt asked:

The Road Less Traveled Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

PC: lifescript.com

Last year was one of the hardest years of my life.

Last year was everything I wanted. I passed my Undergraduate Studies. My volunteering experience was terrific. I traveled extensively with parents.   I made unforgettable memory with my guy friend and my girl friend. I got in into my dream college.

But along with that, last year this time I was making one of the most important decision of my life. I had got into my dream college. I had made my parents extremely proud. But last year this time, I wasn’t happy. I was worried.

I had made it to my dream college but it took me only a week to realize that this wasn’t right for me. I had selected a course because everyone wanted me to take a profitable subject. And I was foolishly trying to prove my parents that I can survive on something I swore I would never get myself into. Deadlines, Assignments, Tests.. well I had already dealt with that before. It was the subject I was having hard time with. I sat in class but after every class, I died inside everyday. Everyone participated in class while I had absolutely no clue what the subject is and what the hell was I doing in this class.

So, I decided to leave the college.

It was one of the hardest decisions that I had to make last year. After studying for 2 months, I dropped out of that prestigious university. More than for myself, I felt terrible for my parents who were ready to help and invest me with so much love and faith. I had to explain to a lot of people about why and how. Most didn’t seem to care how much difficult surviving there was for me. They only understood that I wasn’t fit for such amazing college.

If I had stayed back in the University, I am certain I would have been crying endlessly. It hadn’t even taken me a week to realize that I wasn’t meant for this subject. The only resort of staying back would have been my friends. My sexy snakes. My power circle of amazingly vocal females. They would have given me tons of tissues to cry and even let me copy an assignment or two to save my ass.

I had to make a fresh start at a new college again. It was very difficult. My friends from University were so mad at me for leaving, but they never left me. We still chat and meet up a lot and I miss everyday of those 2 months I had spent with them.

But yes, it would have been an unimaginable mistake to carry on while I died all inside.

I don’t like drawing

Daily Prompt asked:

Drawing a Blank When was the last time your walked away from a discussion, only to think of The Perfect Comeback hours later? Recreate the scene for us, and use your winning line.

Personally, I am not the kind of person who would get into an argument. I’m your quiet, low-key, less words and more listening shadow cat who will have killed you a million times inside the mind but never let it out ever in your face.

There was this one time when I had blurted out that “if we swim in empty stomach we will drown” and it was really bad.

My whole group of Aunties started to laugh at me and shrieked where in the world did I listen such a stupid thing. I didn’t know. I had seen it in some t.v show! The main character despite of being warned goes to swim and he drowns. I have also frequently heard people saying to never swim on an empty stomach.

They were explaining me to that yes, empty stomach will cause fatigue and tiredness. But, doesn’t such exertion result to weakening and eventually drowning? In the end the person drowns no?

ARGH!!!!

Anyways, I didn’t say anything. I was so embarrassed.

I just listened. Standing up with my half empty stomach, I collected and stacked everyone’s plate and went to the kitchen.
