Book Review: YOUR TURN NOW 2

Your Turn Now 2 was recently launched on 27th Feb 2016.

As you see, the book is as interesting as its name. ‘Your Turn Now 2’ has heartwarming stories of random acts of kindness that are really true, inspired by the little blue card.

Just as a stone causes the whole puddle to ripple, this concept of the little blue card has touched thousands of hearts. I love the book from deep down my heart.

The Wonderland Of Dreams!

I can’t imagine a world without dreams, oh how I love dreams!

Fantasy, bravery, humor and horror are the true essence of dreams. But do dreams come true one day? Or they are just fantasies making up in our minds?

Where do dreams come from, who makes them? Do dreams and nightmares come to us as they wish or does someone send them to us? Or does it depend on what we think?

Do nightmares also come true? I wish they won’t!

Hmm...there are so many questions regarding dreams, I wonder if more are left out there?

Anyway, do you know how many stories can come out of a dream! Oh yes, some of my favorite stories that came out as dreams are Geronimo Stilton’s 'Christmas Toy Factory' and what about Alice in the wonderland? How I wish her dream would come true! I know it will not. But I can do nothing to change it.

Do you have a dream that is really interesting, please share it with me. Who knows it will convert into a story?! But for now, good night, sweet dreams!


Three Flower Friends

Long long ago in a valley, inc81d6c3c9d11fbcb8b0d7316e2e9714b which a misty river flowed, there were lots of flowers and in between those flowers were three flowers, named Chinki, Pinki, Rinki. They were friends.

There was something special about them, Chinki could see, Rinki could hear, Pinki could talk! They got these specialties from lord Shiva as a boon.

How did they get these boons?!?! Here’s the story…”One day lord Shiva and Parvati came for a walk in the valley, they were looking for a place to sit and refresh and these flowers offered them nectar and a place to sit, thus the lord was happy and offered them these boons.

One very early morning the flowers were still sleeping, Rinki heard a noise and woke up but couldn’t see…she woke up Chinki who saw some shadows behind the tree…Chinki in turn woke up Pinki and they started guessing who it was. Suddenly a large hand loomed over some of their friends and they realized it was a boy, the florist had ordered the boy to bring some flowers right away because the queen had a baby boy.

The flowers knew they were in danger and quickly made a plan.  When the boy came back for more, they launched their plan, they jumped on top of each other and then Pinki started making weird noises and said “Oh boy, our flower queen too has a new baby boy! Should we also pick you up and give you to our flower queen?”

The boy got afraid, he took to his heels and fled away. The other flowers thanked them and lived happily ever after.
