I was really outta topics so an online friend Ananya helped me and we together wrote and composed this poem. Ankit and i wrote one too ill put that up in the next post. Tell us what you think of it?
I saw him coming my way...
he looked perfect, divine...
i wish I could hold him forever...
i wish he could be mine...!!
He walks across smiling and gleaming
Shining brighter than the sunlight
I look at those glimmering eyes
And just wish he could be mine….
I wish u could feel the way i do..
I wish, to be with him...so he could see me shine...
yet…I am here, still, and mesmerised..
I wish he could be mine..!!
His voice is like no other
Hoping he’d sing our song to me
I sat by thinking and praying
Wishing that he should be mine…
He is every girl's dream...
He is in my mind…my soul..
I don't know...If i love him more than god…
Could he be mine?
My love for him is wider than the universe
Deeper than the ocean
Stronger than sunlight
Purer than clear water…
But All I can do is wish…
Wish for the day,
When in due time
He could be mine
But i know i can't...
As he is no longer here with me..
He is there in my memories now..
And there could stay..be mine..!!
I loved him then..I love him now..
And he will always stroll in my dreams...now and then...
All I can say is…love, You are the one…for me…forever and always..
I am eternally yours...And For me, you are mine...you are mine..!!
Do comment and tell us how it was...we wrote 4 lines each and we ended up with this huge poem!

She sat by the dogs reading to herself some encyclopedias. The dog then began licking her ragged clothes, it was already torn at each corner. She had worn that dress so many times that it was in no condition to be worn. But she couldn’t do anything.
“Meenu come inside” her mother screamed in whatever English she knew.
Meenu was from a poor family. They lived in the slums. Meenu always had the dream of becoming a teacher, since childhood. She even worked towards it, She taught all the village who wanted to learn whatever she knew. She read them stories at night.She studied hard and did all that was required. But her parents felt girls should just sit at home. No dreams, no ambitions. Every day she worked hard at houses and bought books with all the money she earnt. Her mother was going to get her married soon. She was eighteen already and according to their family customs all girls got married by sixteen. Meenu always thought to herself. “ I should do something….or they will get me married” But she could do nothing at all.
One bright morning Meenu was walking to her masters house to do work when she saw a big banner put up. She immediately read it. It said that a new school was opening and it required teachers and admission. It was a government school for poor kids. Meenu was excited looking at it. She decided to go after duty, as it was open from 8am to 12pm. She knew her duty got over at 11 am. She ran to the house happily and began cleaning. Her master looked at her happiness and wondered.
Meenu finished all her work and began to leave the house.
“Stop!” her master said. “The work isn’t over. Today I need you to do this also…” he said pointing towards the birds cage and the aquarium.
“But master…” she said sadly.
“Do you want to work or not? Just go clean the cages and the fish tank.” He shouted
“But master I have to go…” she began telling
“Where do you have to go? What work do you have huh?” he asked confused
“I….um….was planning to go try for a teachers job at the new school” she said happily.
“ School? Teacher? Look at yourself… Your fit for only cleaning. Don’t even dream about it.”
Meenu was helpless. She finished her work and then left. It was 12.30 by then. So she went home straight away to teach the kids. They always learnt from her during noon. She sat and began teaching them about Planets.
“Mercury is the…” she said. The children loved her teaching and listened to her intently. She loved to teach them and she did it because she enjoyed it. All the kids parents loved her for that. They were happy their kids got educated from one amongst them.
One fine day Meenu was teaching the kids as usual. She saw a man pass by. He was staring at her and thinking. He was really simple so she thought he might be a paper man. So she continued teaching the children. Today she taught them Science. Suddenly she turned and saw the man was advancing towards her.
“Excuse me…I didn’t mean to but I couldn’t help but hear and see how well you teach these children. I was thinking…” he went on but she interrupted
“Oh thanks sir. I love to teach them. I didn’t get educated but I read on my own.” She said
“Wow! Well I was thinking how about you become a teacher at the
“Sir I couldn’t go the other day…..Its closed now.” She said sadly.
“No….I’m the head, ‘ill give you a post.” He smiled proudly.
“Sir it’s an honor…okay.” She said happily.
Soon she became the best teacher in town. She got educated too and had a degree. Meenu loved teaching all the children and they loved her too. She had proved herself to her parents and to her master. All the villagers were proud of her.
Meenu’s childhood dream had come true….

a.)2 acrostics for Acrostics only for teens
b.)Drabble- Evil intentions. My first attempt at a drabble
She smiled looking at the body lying flat and dead. Blood smeared all over the body. She bent down and kissed the boy on his cheek. A purple colored lipstick mark appeared on his cheek. She removed the plastic gloves and threw them into her bag.
“She is the only one who wears Vineyard Mystery lipstick in the whole school…. No one will ever find out…Never ever.”
“What--- Oh no!” she mumbled
This was supposed to be a 55 fiction but it turned into a drabble.
Showering of a great gift
Peers forcing me to
Enjoy something they want
Everytime i deny it but
Rarely do they leave me
People all making me change everything
Rarely because i want to
Enough is enough because i am
Sick of this
Stuck up here
Under total pressure
Roaring aloud i scream to
Everyone to leave me alone

If those few words you once told do not,
A few words untold will surely make your life!
But then, why keep mum when I can really speak?
I am open, I say things I feel and I am always audible
If I am not, Sneak-a-Peek into my mind –
Into the Mind of a Teenager!!
A world of my own
A world I have sewn
With threads of gold
And beads of stone
All is for you to see
All is for you to know
I write all I experience
As I thrive ahead and grow
I’d sound grave at times
I’d sound naughty
But my mind is always free
I’d be in equanimity!
Its a Guest Post. A poem written exclusively for Princess Sonshu and keeping her (this) blog in mind. She's as wonderful as the blog is and she deserves all the best wishes and happiness in this world. Keep writing Princess Sonshu, and make it Big one day. Hope to see you somewhere - in some front page of some famous magazine! Best of Luck! Keep writing :)
As the sun gleamed, but yet a sober morning it seemed, Sonshu hugged her pal, Artz.
“What happened, Sonshu?” enquired Artz.
“Nothing new, Quarreled with mother.” replied Sonshu.
“ Sonshu dear” Artz put her arms over her shoulder and continued- “A walk through the jungle?”
Walking along, Sonshu was lost thinking and contemplating over the fights she had had with everyone – her parents, her friends, the servants. She was fed up of everything.
Sonshu was a PRINCESS and a pampered one at that. She owned her desires with no fuss at all. She never understood the importance of ‘relations’ and ‘responsibilities’.
While Sonshu was busy walking and crushing down the small flowers beneath her little feet, she spotted a small, tiny creature – a Tortoise, it was named beautifully. Artz and Sonshu hurried in excitement towards it. Sonshu picked it up and planted on it a warm kiss.
“Hello pretty ladies,” said the tortoise and winked playfully.
“Hello Totty,” Sonshu smiled.
“Artz, do you remember the story of the hare and the tortoise?? This little totty emerged the winner. But don’t you think it won just because of the hare’s stupidity,” Sonshu enquired.
The tortoise replied, “Dear lady, it was not because of the stupidity of the hare but because of the ‘consistency’ I had. Unlike you all, I possess the virtue of consistency. I am never over-confident nor boastful and I never give up. And that is the sole reason why I won.”
Sonshu didn’t get into terms with it fully, but began mulling over the word ‘consistency’ that the tortoise talked about. Artz continued from where the tortoise left and explained to her that consistency is not something which is just required in accomplishing a task; it also means consistency in loving someone, being there for someone and supporting the ones who matter to you.
They continued with their walk and while strolling past the small pond, they noticed a donkey fending with a big bundle on its back. As the donkey stood waiting for its instructions, it spotted the little princess Sonshu and advanced towards her and offered a salute to welcome her.
“Donk, why don’t you run away? Your master is busy washing the clothes,” asked the princess.
The donkey replied in a jiffy, “By running away don’t you think I will be breaking the trust of my master? Won’t I lose my credibility which is such a difficult thing to earn? Moreover, I have a family to feed, my children to be taken care of, can I be so irresponsible? I don’t live only for myself after all.”
Artz tightened her grip over Sonshu’s shoulder and continued- “Life is about relations and responsibilities. Every relation is mutual. Each relation rests on a strong base – be it between a master and a slave or between the family members. The base needs to be strong and then every single moment you would spend with them will make you experience heaven on earth.”
For Sonshu, relations and responsibilities were never borne with such deep meanings. She drifted into thoughts about what she had just heard. Though in small ways, all of this started making sense to her.
Artz withdrew from the basket- the mangoes that she had brought along from home. They halted; spread a napkin to sit under the shade of a huge tree as they enjoyed drawing in the lovely flavour that the mango had to offer. Sonshu in the meanwhile, though lost in thoughts felt much lighter and more learned. She started discovering other dimensions in life. It was then, that they blotted a peacock spreading it wings, ready to dance, as the first drop of rain splattered on its colourful wings.
Sonshu crawled towards the majestic peacock and spread the warmness of her hands onto its body. She enquired- “What is the connection between rain and your spreading of wings?” The peacock added to its majesty by letting a smile and went on to explain- “Rain symbolizes the different problems we encounter in life. Each drop that splatters on me is like a burden that I have to bear. And that is when we have to be stronger, SPREAD our wings and DANCE IN THE RAIN. Once the dark sky clears, what will follow is Bright Sunshine.”
Sonshu, the little princess for once felt gratified, gratified for the fact that she realized that life had so much to offer, and she had so much to learn from so many. She felt ‘learned’, she felt a sense of enlightenment, she felt light. She realized that every relationship is important and every responsibility needed to be handled with might. There was no running away, no looking back. She believed she would always give it a best shot.
This day, this little outing, the subtle feelings which were born in her, changed her outlook towards life. She became all the more humble and responsible. The little princess Sonshu loved and was loved.
Dearest Sonshu, writing this 151st post for your blog gives me immense pleasure and happiness. Why I wrote this fable is because now you are 14 and now is when you will start understanding the meaning of relations, the meaning of life.
On this very special day, I would like to wish you all the very best for your future endeavors. May God bless you with every happiness and success that you deserve.
I hope to write another guest post on the occasion of your 500th post!
Keep writing, Keep Loving.

“Mumma, why don’t you love me?” I asked my mother
“I know you are proud of bhai and you regret being a mother of dumb child like me,” I added .
“Chup pagli! You are my princess dear,” My mother said to me.
As a 7 year old year kid, I was little aware that my parents loved me. Bhaiyya was far much older to me. He was 12 years old when I was born. I didn’t had touch with my bhai as he studied in a boarding school. He used to come home during summers. I still remember bhaiyya carrying me over his shoulder and playing with me. My bhai was precious to me, just like my parents.
“Mumma, I know I score less marks in exams, but that doesn’t means you stop loving me, “I said to my mother.
Just a while ago, she scolded me for getting less marks in English Grammar. She hit me with a stick. I know after all she is my mother. A mother has the rights to scold her kid.
“No, daa, you two are my eyes,” She said to me.
“Even if one eye is defected then it is a great matter of concern,” she added
“As a responsible mother I would definitely wish that both my kids fare equally well in academics,” She said with a straight face.
“You are too small dear, it will take time for you to understand,” she smiled.
“Mom, I love you,”I hugged my mumma.
“Not all days are Sundays, One day I will make you, papa and bhaiyya proud,” and I smiled.
“Mumma!, Look bhaiiya has come, “I rushed towards my bhai.
17 years later, the little girl grew up into an Engineer .Today she was going to receive the most prestigious award from the President of India. She was the happiest woman on Earth. She was accompanied by her mother, father, brother and bhabi in the award function.
The little girl was constantly feeling bad because of her poor performance in studies. She got inspired from her brother. Thus we can turn a pebble into a statue if we think we can.
Through this post I would like to Congratulate Princess Sonshu for her achievements. I hope that one day she becomes a famous writer similar to the protagonist of the story and make us proud.Ahh!! me already your fan and awaiting for your novel.You have a long way to go dear.Just is just your beginning and trust you will taste success at an early age.We all are here for you and help you.
Loads of wishes for you,

To my surprise, she was a very young lady. Her blog was titled “Sneak-a-Peek into the Mind of a Teenager” and my first thoughts after reading her blog were, WOW! She is the most unique teenager I have ever met in my life; online or off. She was so filled with love and respect for her fellow bloggers, and always had encouraging word for everyone. I said to myself, this is the wisest teenager I know, and I was so honored to have her leave me such an encouraging comment.
What was her comment, well; she said “I am expecting great things from you”. Tears swelled in my eyes when I read it, and I felt like a child receiving praise from her favorite teacher. For no one has ever said such encouraging words to me in all the sixty years of my life. I called my children and grandchildren immediately and told them of this wonderful Princess I had met online.
It seems to me that all of the other guest writers have taken what I desire to say, and I am left with just these few humble words; my beloved Princess Sonshu, you are wise beyond your years, and you have been blessed with wonderful parents, and a host of friends and well wishers from around the world; and I proudly include myself. If I had my life to live over again, I would ask God to incorporate your spirit within me, so that I too may do great things in my life, not only for myself but for my friends and love ones ... and to make proud of me.
Young one, you have touched the soul of this old one, from across the world, and brought so much joy into my life, with your wonderful spirit. I send my blessing to you and your beloved family --- and indeed, all your beloved friends.
I congratulate you on your 15Oth post, and most certainly appreciate being allowed to be a part of this joyous celebration.
God bless you.

Know that she smiles like a doll
Doll that she is, graceful like a princess
Princess she calls herself and I couldn’t agree more
More than all the beauty in the world
World of fairies. Princesses and snowhites
She shines thru like a star
Star she is of our blogging family
Family that treats and respects her for what she is
Is she Cindrella or is she Snow White? Or
Or is she Jasmine, or is she Bella? Or
Or is she Barbie or is she Fiona? Hmmm
She sure is a Princess but she’s Sonshu
Sonshu, a girl who is better than all the Disney princesses
Princesses that are imaginary. But
But Sonshu is a real girl who melts our heart
Heart melts when we read her posts
Posts that she sweetly comments on
On her following our blogs we feel honored
Honored that a star would grace our world.
You really are my star. You remind me of my sister and I think you are one. I love what you write and I think you got a great potential as a writer. But moreover, blog your heart out and be yourself. That is the best thing anyone can tell you. :D
Now for my shining star, I have something she’ll looove!
See Edward loves you ;)
And I love you too. So here’s a lil something for my Star Blogger.Hoping I'll be writing a guest post for your 1000th post!

This is Pratibha (Pretty Me) writing a guest post for our dear Sonshu!
Star like bright,
Uniqueness is your right!
When sonshu first visited my blog, i never knew that such sweet blogger is actually a sweet li'l blogger.. More readings of her blog and the wonderful comments she left on my posts bonded us together. But i got to know the real face of her through shoutbox at The Writing lounge !! (remember the chat post dear !! ;) ) so when i say its a honour to write here, i really mean it (though i am nervous too ) !!
Here is a very old poem i chose to share with you and the readers of your blog Sonshu ;
You can feel happy,
you can feel sad,
No one said to you,
life's always bad??
You can trust all you want,
or let doubt be near,
but if you trust yourself,
nothing you will fear.
You can support the right,
or can ignore the unjust,
but to whom you will turn
when you are troubled.
You can seek revenge,
or tend to forgive,
its all upto you,
How you want to live.
and may you write more than a 100,000 posts in your life !!
each as sweet as your previous ones !!
ps:i miss your series on lounge.. where is the next part ?
pps: I forgot to say... Love ya dearie !! will meet ya soon !!
ppps : nothing here ... simply added it ;)
