I deserved it - 55 fiction

Note: 55 Fictions is precise form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.
Handle with care and smile: I still maintain believing that I hardly have any peculiar understanding for the 55fiction; however I'm trying to learn with each experiment. And so far the learning journey has been really fun. So before you head on to read this 55fiction, let me remind you again that this is my humble second attempt .

  • I deserved it!



    "It's been very long-lingering-lonely-feeling. I am distress-despair-disappointed and dishearten.

It feels like a dry-desert.
But definitely I owe little dew-droplets.

I took some breath and strength to change my regular self.

So I decided to come to the beach,

And enjoy

my damn-dessert here,

..the chocolate fantasy!"


I deserved the dessert @ Rachi creations


P.S. the description :

  • DESERT: A desert is a place with 10 inches or 25cm of rain or less a year. Deserts cover about one seventh of the earth's surface. Or a place a landscape or region that receives very little precipitation.
  • DESSERT: Dessert is a course that typically comes at the end of a meal, usually consisting of sweet food but sometimes of a strongly-flavored.
  • DESERT in philosophy: Desert is the condition of being deserving of something, whether good or bad. It is related to justice, revenge, blame, punishment and many topics central to moral philosophy.

 Note:
  • Special thanks to Mahesh, who have been constantly reminding me to post my second fiction, nevertheless I’m very nervous to know his reaction to my attempt.
  • The drawing is made by thyself, Rachi Creations.. See guys, I kept my promise as made in my first fiction that I shall add a reflecting drawing with every fiction I write.
  • Thank you so much  guys for being so persistent and going through this post. Please do post your comments :)

Nostalgia - the Past Perfect

BLUE Emotions @ Rachi Creations..
As the quote goes,Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: You find the present tense and the past perfect”.

Ahh! The wheel of the time which continuously turns over churning the life with best and odd moments…wish there was a reverse gear! Hmm…being a bit…Nah! Very Nostalgic!

 Here, I have come up with a Game to play with all my dear reader buddies. Each line is like a Stimulator to the best and the odd incredible moments.


All you need is to read each line and feel it and try to recall the moment instantly before reading the next line…

So take few long breaths and go back to your origin and sense the experience…


  • Remember the first day of your life in School?
  • Remember the strange earthy fresh smell of the new notebook?
  • Remember your first raincoat?
  • Remember your very new and stylish car shaped pencil box?
  • Remember very heavy and much larger than you the school bag carried on your tiny shoulders?
  • Remember how you shared your Tiffin box with friends during lunch break?
  • Remember the way you hated doing homework?
  • Remember the way you threw your bag on the bed and ran outside to play with your colony friends?
  • Remember buying picture charts to paste for the project-work assigned in school?
  • Remember during vacations writing the cursive writing books to improve your handwriting?
==================================
  • Remember the first time you fall down so badly while cycling and hurting your knees so badly?
  • Remember your classroom blackboard, where you often made funny cartoons?
  • Remember throwing small chalk pieces in the classroom?
  • Remember scribbling on the last page of the notebook?
  • Remember trying to paint in the art class, however not liking drawing?
  • Remember the way you loved eating Rajma Chawal in lunch during Sundays?
  • Remember the first time you made tea without anybody’s help?
  • Remember the way you had silly fight with your friends over getting out in hide and seek game, you cried and came back home in anger?
  • Remember playing under table making tents with the bed sheet?
  • Remember eating poppins or hoping the colorful gems?
==========================
  • Remember wearing colorful dress in the school on your birthday?
  • Remember getting dressed up as a sunflower for the annual day function?
  • Remember you brought in school your new sweet fragrant eraser to show off in front of your classmates?
  • Remember flying kites on the terrace and cutting your finger due to sharp thread? Remember your first cycle with side supports?
  • Remember the first time you started writing with pen in school?
  • Remember the way you waited to watch and every time got amazed to see the rainbow after the rains?
  • Remember making paper boats and paper frogs in the free classes?
  • Remember playing pranks in the school assembly?
  • Remember pretending to feel dizzy in the long school assembly?
  • Remember singing the National Anthem in the school?
==============
P.S. Hope these lines stimulated you to remember your innocence which we have almost lost in the chaos of fast forward life!

Time shall fly away the moment you actually realize it.
Make it last longer, make it memorable!

first attempt - 55 fiction

I have been reading the 55Fiction for a long time and have always enjoyed it. But because I have a tendency of writing long paragraphs…I thought 55fiction was not my cup of tea, until I firmly decided last night to at least ones attempt before completely declining over.

Fifty-five fictions is limited, precise and exciting to see the dramatic turn over to the whole story-line.
So here’s beginning with a little sneak-peep into the history and origin of 55fiction.

ORIGIN & HISTORY: The origin of 55 Fiction can be traced to a short story writing contest organized by New Times, an independent alternative weekly in San Luis Obispo, California, in 1987. This idea was proposed by New Times founder and publisher Steve Moss.

Steve Moss, whose full name was Stephen Donnellan Moss, was born in Riverside, Calif September 18, 1948. He died of complications of epilepsy in his garden in San Luis Obispo on April 24, 2005. He was 56. The 55 Fiction copyright inured to Moss' family.

The Steve Moss Memorial Scholarship in Journalism was founded by his family and friends to support journalism students at California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo. Its endowment is managed by the San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation.

The 55 Fiction Competition has been continuously organized by New Times ever since it was introduced in 1987. The competition is an annual event with open participation.
DEFINE 55FICTION: 55 Fiction is a form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.

CRITERIA: There is a definite criterion for the 55fiction and hence I have my own too:
  1. Fifty-five words. or less (A non-negotiable rule).
  2. A setting,
  3. One or more characters,
  4. Some conflict, and A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
  5. The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.
  6. Shall try to add a picture related to the 55fiction, which shall be my rachi creation, an art that works as a complementary to a story-line.
source: wikipedia

TOOL to count the words: http://www.wordcounttool.com/
My FIRST ATTEMPT to 55fiction:
  • Eyes on ME!
I stood leaning the wall all drenched in the rain.
Everyone’s eye was on me.
I could notice the rolling eyes inspecting so keenly my body-hugging black dress.
Swiftly, someone just came and took me in his arms, not bothering about my wet clothes.

Conversely, why should one care,

I was just..

...an Umbrella!



Do let me know your views on my very first attempt to 55fiction. Your words shall be a great help. Thank you for being persistent and going through this post!

Note :

  • Special thanks to Lena and Priya for their kind words, support and inspiration, I get all the time!!
  • Also not forgetting to thanks Late Steve Moss who after all invented this chronically narrative way of writing short story.

Recycling and Climate Change

note : BLOGADDA -picked this post as Spicy Saturday Picks 
Aristotle said "Change in all things is sweet". But the way these days Climate is changing all around the world it have become the major concern to worry.

We are aware about the global warming, CO2 emission, cutting of trees, disappearing ground-water, dust and gasses passed on to environment from the factories, wild-animals entering the villages because of forest cut-down, Over-population…and so on. But seems very little have the race of human done to protect and save the environment. The disaster is taking place in the form of Climate Change affecting the biodiversity of the planet. If each of us let our simply basic day-to-day acts, a lot could be a help to the cause.

This year, 2009 we have observed recently a sudden severe flip-flop of climate in India. This sudden unnatural climate change was not at all estimated by the weather man. A severe drought in almost all the parts of India and then followed by very heavy rains and floods are the chronological results of Climate Change that takes place all around the world. It is believed that India has witness the worst drought year over the last two decades. Indeed, it’s an irony that on the other hand states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra floods set to break 100 year Record in floods.
Let’s take our promise to CHANGE and create our awareness to CONTROL over the Changing Climate.

This post is a way I wanted to contribute my little bit care to the environment in return to its gifts. Here, I’m not going into huge details but I shall prefer to be very straight and crisp to the bunch of points and innovative ideas, which you may like to, adopt and adapt in your life.




  • Oil Plastic Can: I mostly buy my household things in bulk. Hence, always get big plastic cans of oil. When the oil is finished in the can, I wash the can properly and with the heated knife, cut the Oil plastic Can in such a way that can be reused. Look at the below picture! The oil’s Plastic Can is used to keep all the big Spoons and different ladles together.And I am proud to use it.
Plastic Cans RecycledPlastic Cans Recycled


  • Cold-Drink Bottles: We often buy many bottles of cold-drinks and mineral water. When used mostly people throw them. But I cut them and reuse them to keep various things like set of knifes, set of pens, set of combs or for just keeping coins. I also use them to keep certain food items.
Recycle Plastic Bottle


  • Juice Cartoon: The juice cartoon is recycled in such a way that I use them as small box to segregate things to keep in the drawer. Look at the below picture!
Fruit Juice Cartoon


  • Plastic packets: The empty plastic packets of the Rice are cleaned, cut and opened as a sheet and used as the cover-sheet for keeping certain things.
Plastic Packets


  • Grow Plants to save our Planet: Because I don’t have a garden in my home, I make sure to have few plants in pots at home. To plant and care a plant is the greatest satisfaction and serve my urge to contribute to the Nature.


Grow more Plants


  • Switch-Off: I always make sure to switch-off the light and fan before I leave home. And as far as possible try use the natural day sunlight, by keeping the windows wide open.
  • Close tape: I keep my water tape closed while brushing my teeth. Though, I’m bit generous using excess water in the kitchen but I’m sure I shall overcome this habit soon.
  • Shopping Plastic Bags: The plastic bags given by the shopkeeper while shopping are reused as the dustbin bags to throw the wastes.
  • Print Less: You can also try and create paperless habits or prefer to use both sides of the page.
  • Plan Trip: I plan and try to clump my things and trips before going to the market. This helps to conserve the  fuel.
  • Cooking Rules: Avoid keeping the hot things inside the fridge directly. Save the energy by letting cool-down first. Cook food in the pressure-cooker to save fuel. Cut the vegetables into small pieces to cook them quickly. Cook food covered in the vessel.
  • Donate old clothes: When I get my wardrobe old, I give it to needy. Also use few shredded clothes as the kitchen towel or duster. This is a beautiful way to do charity and save precious energy.




NOTE :
In my own little way I have contributed few posts to the environment. The Links are as follows:

What?

NOTE  :  I wrote this over 4 consecutive years, since year2001 to year2004. Yep! Quite a chronological written over. In fact as you roll down, you will also read in clear the year 2004 has been included in certain para. It is the phase expressed during the teenage life and early college life. It is a time when a strong churning in life goes on in the understanding for the philosophies, truths and learning of life.

Every time I used to write a small para and never thought it would be so long and engrossing some day. What is interesting here is that every colored para have its own story related to my life. I have only cut paste into this post, without any sort of alteration made to the original work. Its not a Poem or Story or some Article..tell me if you can W.H.A.T is it…!

I THINK OFTEN SUCH THINGS.

SOMETIMES THE ONE AND ONLY THING
THAT WOULD PLEASE ME THE MOST IS

EVERY LITTLE STRAIGHT OR CURVED
LINE OR SIGN LEADS TO CREATIVITY
EXPLORING THE EMOTIONS OF ART

THE WORLD OF CHOCOLATES AND SOME CREAM
BUT THEN MY HEART SCREAMS


LEARN THE LIFE
WISDOM OUT OF WORRIES
FACINATION OUT OF FRUSTRATION
THERE'S NO EXPLAINATION WHY
THINGS LIKE THAT CAN MAKE YOU CRY
YOU JUST HAVE TO LEARN TO LAUGH
THINGS ARE WEIRD MAKING ME SAY A PRAY
TO WISH TO BE SELFISH
THAT IS TO ME RARE
FOR MY OWN NEEDS AND DESIRES TO BE FULFILLED
THIS IS A TOUGH GESTURE I CAN MAKE
TO THINK OF THINGS THAT ARE ONLY FOR MY SAKE
JUST TAKE EVERYTHING I OWE
ONLY LEAVE A LITTLE PEACE PLEASE AND GO

BREAKING THE RULES TO MAKE YOUR OWN RULE LAST LIFELONG
THERE IS NOTHING ABNORMAL ABOUT MY BEHAVIOUR
MOST PEOPLE WILL STARE AT THINGS THEY CAN NEVER HOLD
I WONDER WHY
THINGS DOES NOT APPEAL ME
UNTILL THEY ACTUALLY END UPTO ME IN ALL ASPECTS
ALL INCIDENTS OR ANY DECISION
BE COMPLEATLY MY CHOICE OF ACTION AND REACTION
SOMETHINGS AGAIN THAT ONLY GIRLS ARE GOOD AT
SOME RELATIONSHIPS LAST FOREVER
WITH YOU AND WITHIN YOU
MEMORIES OF MARVEL ALWAYS TRAVEL
SEDUCING SENCES THOUGHTS GESTURES
AND RISING THE INTIMATE LUSTY LEVEL
LANGUAGE OF LOVE
YOU READ THE UNSPOKEN SIGNALS AS WELL AS THE SPOKEN WORDS
AND CATCH THE HIDDEN MEANINGS BEHIND THE LINES
YOU COULD EXPLORE YOUR DREAMS
AND YOU PROBABLY DO
MIRROR BEING THE COMMON EVERYDAY
REMINDS AND PROVOKES THE FEELING OF CARE
LOVE IS YOURS AND YOU FEEL LOVED
INDEED EACH DAY HAS ITS MOMENTS

OFTEN I FEEL TO WRITE A LOT ABOUT ME
LETTING EACH AND EVERY SINGLE TINY MOMENT BE DISCLOSED
WITH FULL SELF-ASSURANCE AND INTEGRITY
BUT SOON I AM FOUND WITH THE LACK OF WORDS
AND RIGHT TONES TO JUSTIFY THE EMOTIONS
I EXACTLY WANT TO DISPLAY AND WANT OTHERS TO UNDERSTAND
MY PRACTICE OF WRITING
HAVE SOMEWHERE CREATED A FEELING OF SATISFACTION
ALSO A SILENT LISTENER
AND A GUIDELINE TO NOTE
IF CONSIDERED AFTERWARDS
THE QUOTED WORDS OF TINY
BUT IMMENCE DEEP PRACTICAL
EMOTIONLLY ATTACHED MEANING
OF THE WHOLE SIGHT RESEMBLING BOTH
THE INNER MIND OF MINE
AND OTHER WORLD WHICH EXISTS OF NUMEROUS CREATURES
VERY TRUE TO ACCEPT BUT REALLY HURTS
TO KNOW THE STRANGE GOSSIPS AND SILLY RUMOURS
ABOUT YOU ARE IN THE AIR
MORE AS YOU HEAR FROM THE ONE WHOM YOU CALL
YOUR SO CALLED GOOD-FRIENDS
PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW OR UNDERSTAND
HOW MUCH IT HURTS IN ANY SMALL OR BIG BOND
OR RELATIONSHIP OF AFFECTION
THAT PAUSE DUE TO HAZARDOUS REASONS OF RUMOURS
YOU TRY TO BE AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE
NICE TO PEOPLE AND CONCERN TO CIRCUMTANCES
BUT AT THE END IT HAS TO BE YOU TO BE BLAMED
FOR ALL THAT HAPPENED

MIGHT BE OTHERS ARE TOO GOOD AND NICE TO BE MY PEOPLE MY FRIENDS
IT SOUNDS LITTLE DIPLOMATIC
BUT THATS THE WAY I MANAGE ALL OF THEM
SENSITIVE I AM
THE INFLUENCE IS SO HIGH THAT OFTEN TOUCHES MY LIMITS SKY
AND IT MIGHT
HURT A ROW OF LIFES
TOUCHING THE FEETS OF ALMIGHTY
FETCHING THE LOVE AND LAUGHTER
FROM TSUNAMI TEARS
THERES A BELEIF
THAT WORKS AS RELEIF
FOLDS SOME SLEEVES AND ALL FORCE IS RELEASED
BY LITTLE CEASE AND LITTLE PLEASE
WHAT THE HELL AM I WRTING
I LOOSE MY THOUGHTS
SOMETIMES IN THE MIDDLE THE "FEEL" IS LOST
AND ON THE GROUND CRAWL
RISING WARMTH TROLLS AND TURMOIL OF EMOTIONS
ROLLS THE BINDER OF EVERY INSTANT INDEED INCREDIBLE MOMENT IS GONE
LOTS BEEN THERE GROWING PART
MENTALLY PHYSICALLY EMOTIONALLY IN ALL THE ASPECTS TRUE TO LIFE
SOME BEING IGNORED
SOME BEING STRUCK TO
SOME BEING RESPONDED LATE
SOME THINGS SHOULD'NT HAS BEEN HAPPEED
WOULD'NT HAS BEEN HAPPENED
BUT HAVE HAPPENED
HAVING NO SPECIAL REASON
WHY ! I ASK LORD AND JUST TOUCHED HIS HEART CORD
MOULD MYSELF TO I ME MINE
THINGS NOT IN A STRAIGHT LINE
TRYING TO HOLD SHINE
HAD A GULP OF WINE
WAKED UP AT NINE
STILL NO ANSWER TO MY QUESTION WILL YOU BE MINE
TICKLING TOUCH TIDE
SLIDE AND HIDE
MOMENT WITH ETERNAL JOY
INDEED JUST ONE MOMENT CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING
LETTING TO GIVE A LIFE LONG SONG
EVERY MORNING SUN RISE AND EVERY GOOD NIGHT KISS HUMMED
REMINDS THE ETERNEL EMOTION
EFFULGENTLY TICKLING THE WAVES OF MEMORIES IN MIND

I AM FREE
FREE TO THINK ANYTHING
FREE TO LINK EVERYTHING
I AM FREE TO THE TICKLING I FEEL
BECAUSE I AM ALWAYS ON MY HEELS
AS I AM FREE I CAN FREAK
LIVE DREAMS ARE GOOD
BUT
LIVING IN REALITY IS ACTUALLY GREAT
I AM ALL SMILES
EVEN IF CONFUSION MARKS MY MOMENTS
ACTUALLY I PREVENT A SNAFU BY TAKING THAT EXTRA STEPS
MY STRENGTH AND PERSONALITY COMES THROUGH NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
CANNOT SAY WHY DO I FEEL SO MUCH CALM
AND POSITIVE AFTER SUCH SIGN OF AN UNCERTAIN
INDEED ITS A INCREADIBLE HOLD IN ME OF EMOTIONS
WHEN NEITHER I BLAME ANYONE NOR MYSELF
BUT WITH SUCH A SANITY IN BREATH I TAKE A LIGHT WHEN FELT
FACING EVERYTHING AND AVOIDING NOTHING IS THE ULTIMATE PRACTICE
IT REQUIRES TREMENDEOUS COURAGE
UNUSUAL SINCERITY AND A POWERFUL COMMITMENT
RECENTLY I REALISED THROUGH MY OWN SMALL BIG BOLD ACT
YOUNG AGE AS TO FEEL MUCH OLDER THAN ACTUAL AGE
FOR SURE MY STATEMENTS SURPRIINGLY SOUND LITTLE LIKE SAINT

A LOT I CAN WRITE
AN EXPRESSION OF EMOTIONAL KITE FLY HIGH UP IN THE HEART OF SKY
EACH DAY HAS ITS MOMENT
MAKING THE MOST OF THE MOMENT
THAT REALLY COUNTS
AND WHEN MADE THE MISTAKE EVER
SOMETHING GOOD COMES OUT
FREEDOM TO FOLLOW
CHANGE IS CONSTANT
CHANGE IN EVERY WAY IS WHAT WANTS ME
CHALLENGE BECOMES SECRETLY
UNCONVENTIONAL IN A WILLFUL WAY
LETTING GO OF PEOPLE AND PLACES WHEN FULFILLED THE ROLE
WITH THEM AND FOR THEM IS A LIFE LESSON
THE SOUL URGE SUN SHOWERS ITS RAYS
AND THERE BE A LITTLE DRIZZLING RAIN
THEN I SHALL NEVER FELL ALONE AGAIN

WALK AWAY FROM EMPTINESS
WALK INTO WHOLESOME
FLAUNT YESTERDAY
TACKLE TOMORROW
WALK INTO THE LAVISHING LANE
CLOSE MY EARS
CLOSE MY EYES
EMOTION TURNS
FROM FEEL TO PHYSICAL FREE TEAR
REMINDING THE LONG
THE WAIT THE HOPE
THE TOUCH THE GRACE
THE SMILE THE FACE
STILL IS STILL
BUT SILENCE SPEAKS
A LANGUAGE SO SOFT
AND YET SO CLEAR
THAT ONLY THOSE
WILLING TO LISTEN
CAN HEAR
AND READ THE UNSPOKEN LINES
A PLACE WHERE FANTACY AND REALITY MEET
ULTIMATELY CHERISHING MEMORIES AND MIRACLES CREATE
"RACHI CREATIONS"
COLOURS CREATIVITY CHEERFULNESS
CONFIDENCE AND CELEBRATION
NOW IT HAVE "C" STEP FORWARD OF
CONTROL COMPLIMENT COMMITMENT
COURAGE CHARM CARE COMPASSION
ITS A CONVERSION FROM
COPYING TO COPY-RIGHT
"RACHI CREATIONS" MADE ITS MARK AS
A CALM CONVERSATION
WITH ALL THE BONDS OF AFFECTION..

recipe for lazy man - Ajwain Paratha

I'm back with a crunchy, tasty and healthy recipe for my dear Lazy friends! This shall be proved to you in the next few lines...

Ajwain Paratha

It is the Ajwain Paratha in the Smoky Kitchen today. What! I love the most about this particular Azwain Paratha recipe, is the combination of the sunrise golden color crispiness of the paratha/bread and a strange an amalgamation in crunchy grainy texture due to semolina added. A strong aroma of the raw Ajwain Seed (carom seeds) is simply matchless to any spice found in the kitchen. Amazingly, a little amount of Ajwain Seeds actually dominates the flavor of the dish.

Whenever I make this paratha with all the quick skills…I instantly breathe life!  SO let's proceed our experience with some detail on Ajwain Seeds and then followed by the ingredients with the making of the recipe.

Ajwain also known as (Ajowan caraway, carom seeds or mistakenly as bishop's weed), is an uncommon spice except in certain areas of Asia. Ajwain smells almost exactly like herb thyme. Ajwain is originated in the Middle East, possibly in Egypt. In India, the major Ajwain producing states are Rajasthan and Gujarat, where Rajasthan produces about 90% of India's total production. Interestingly, it is believed as aids in digestion. (ref. wikipedia)

Ingredients for Azwain Paratha


~ Easily Serve: 2-3 pax.
Ingredientsfor Making Ajwain Paratha:

  • Whole wheat flour: 1½ cup (Shall make 6-8 paratha)
  • Semolina (Sugee): ½ cup,
  • Gram flour (Besan): 1 tablespoon,
  • Turmeric powder: ¼ teaspoon,
  • Red chilly powder: ¼ teaspoon
  • Coriander (dhania) powder: ¼ teaspoon
  • Carom (Ajwain) seeds: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste.
  • Oil for making parathas
  • Water to knead the dough

Method of Making Ajwain Paratha:
  • Take the semolina (sugee) on to the pan on low flame and slowly roast them dry until it turns golden brown.
  • Now add all the ingredients with the semolina in the Bowl. Mix it well.
  • Than take sufficient water and add into the mixture slowly little by little to make dough and strongly knead into nice smooth dough. You may use around ½ cup of water.
  • The dough shall be smooth and soft. Cover and leave the dough with a tissue/cloth and set aside for about 5-10 minutes (if in hurry, than no need to set aside).
  • To make paratha/flatbread, divide the dough into balls. Take the size large as of a large lemon. Take a ball, dust with flour and roll out to a flat thin disc.
  • Heat a tava/pan (griddle). When well heated, place a paratha on the tava. Roast on medium flame both sides using the oil.
  • Please refer to the link (cooking Parathaa on Tawa).
  • Serve hot with any sabzi or curry along with curd/raita.

NOTE:
  • If you are in sheer hurry, skip roasting the Semolina (sugee), add it directly to the mixture to make dough.
  • To make the ajwain(Carom seeds)- paratha, soft, add two tablespoon of curd while making dough. To keep the parathas crisp, skip the curd.
  • You might also like to add the (chickpeas flour) gram flour 1tablespoon with the flour while kneading to add earthy flavor. Perhaps it’s optional! However I like to add it :)
  • Play with different aromatic spices. After all it's Indian Kitchen.
  • Active your senses and add the ingredients according to your flavor.

And as I have always believed in the perfect quote,
Never leave Hope in dismay, until dismay leaves you.
...So, never leave the Hope in cooking even if your kitchen turns into smoke and mess. Believe me, the moment it’s a mess, you will learn from the mistake and next time, the best you will perform ever since then...Wish you all the best in the kitchen and hope you enjoy making and relishing the Paratha!

Copyright quotes Creativity - a blog disclaimer

In recent years there has been a boom in internet and related pursuit like blogging. Hence, most of the people of such creative line are aware of the crimes and laws like copyright against those crimes for protecting the original ideas.

So what is Copyright ?

Copyright, this © symbol means that from the moment you create something which is original on the paper, it is believed as copyrighted. Therefore, if someone wants to use your work, they will eventually have to ask your permission to republish it. The alterations or remix to your work can be done only when you permit it for.

In the most convenient way to quote Copyright is like an umbrella protecting your original ideas from any damage. Perhaps it gives the originator to claim few exclusive rights of the product created.

Creative people put so much of their attention and hard work in their art to be created. Being an artist, I understand the emotions attached with the art-work. They put so much of their time, thought and idea to create that unique piece. And then the other person uses your created art-work, and gets all the credit. You can imagine, what goes through the creator’s mind at such moment!
Perhaps, Creativity must be cared by Copyright.
Many a time, creativity/art of others inspires our own thought. Hence, while blogging, people tend to use the pictures/ photographs found in Google image or other similar platforms. Although, it is found that the bloggers use such pictures/ photographs as a source of inspiration or simply as an enhancer of blogger’s write-ups.

But law is a law and there is no scope of excuse for self-defense and under no condition the artist/creator’s feelings can be hurt. So at present scenario, one has to be very careful while using the art-work of some other person whether it is copyrighted or not.
The only standard solution to the problem is to respect art and practice that the copyrighted works must always be used with the permission. Key rule or a legal clause to remember, that only giving the credit to the copyrighted esteem art-work is not enough, it is mandatory to take the permission from the creator of the art-work.
Ever since I have acutely understood the blogging sphere, I made sure to protect my art-work which is in public forum, from any infringement and reuse without my permission.

I was very fortunate enough to get the pictures/photographs/poems contributed for my blog from my very dear friends.

Yes! They Willingly gave me their art-works.Or let me declare it like this I took their permissions before publishing their art-works in my blog.
Needless to say, my friend’s art-work is so inspiring and moving. So a section in the blog was created to list the friend’s names for the contribution made. This was an alternative way to give credit to those people. And I still maintain such Best practice.

But between those perfect shots few mistakes were made. Yes! In the beginning of my careers in blogging, I used in my blog, few photographs/pictures from Google Image search and other similar platforms, which is quite a common ritual among the bloggers. However, I made sure to link all those pictures linked with the backlinks. I wanted to believe it was enough done by my part.

The perception vanished, the moment I got a mail from anonymous "X". I never came across to anything like this before which is why it was a strange setback for me.

Below follows the mail from the anonymous, then a mail followed by me as a reply and then another mail as a feeling revert back from the anonymous, “X”. Please go through the mails mentioned below to understand it better:


  • Mail from the Anonymous “X
"I am very surprise to see that my photo of the pebbles has been used without my permission... I am not sure how this has happened since the image was listed on flicker and I do not allow access to my images for blogging unless specific requests are made???????????????? I do allow some of my images to be used if I am fully referenced and if I agree with the subject matter of the blog or article! I did not give permission in this case."


  • then goes MY response...
"Hi 'X',
With reference to your mail, I heartily apologize for the photo of your been used without permission.
Honestly if you believe me, I had no idea that this photograph was reserved with rights. If I had any idea, I would have definitely taken your permission.
I have removed the picture form my blog, kindly check the link and forgive me for the sheer mistake been done!
I heartily appriciate and adore the creativity and definitely understand you concern over this issue. However, I still beleieve You will understand after reading this and accept my apology!!"


  • and here goes X’s response to my Mail..
"thank you for your kind note! I do understand mistakes are made. I have not put a copy right on all my images because I thought the flickr security measures were adequate...apparently not.
I have been losing revenue with some of my images especially the borealis photographs and decided finally I had to get on top of things. I have had to contact 3 blogs this week.
Thanks for the speedy response. I did like the concept of the blog! Lovely. Now we have spoken I am happy for you to use it or I can send / upload one with my copyright on if you like.
I do appreciate your comment thanks and kind regards 'X'."


Everybody have a right to claim for their belongings. Therefore, I heartily respect the concern over the issue.
I also have one of my posts of the blog which have been used in some other website by a stranger. I got aware of it recently. I tried contacting that person to claim, even commented but till now neither any response came nor my blog post have been removed from that site.

Hence, being an artist myself, I definitely can understand this vulnerability of such deep issue and can empathize with such circumstances completely. It was very upsetting. It definitely hurts when, despite your so many efforts to avoid such issues, you end up in something so embarrassing. I waited eagerly for the response from 'X' and got comforted only after getting positive 'X' response. I’m glad that 'X' understood, it was a mistake made and accepted an apology.

With this post, I also take an opportunity to create my blog disclaimer and other the blog-rights. Please go through the Link for mutual benefits.
