IBMC #07: The News and Paper Challenge


This is my seventh post for IBMC. It involves picking up a news article and expressing your thoughts in regard to it.

 The article I selected is:

So here’s my take on it. 

We live in a world where Trump is declaring Twitter wars on a daily basis, where mother nature is punishing us with frequent hurricanes for not seeing the warning signs of climate change, where news on terrorism has somehow attained creepy normalcy, and where we are so caught up in a web (quite literally !) of nothingness that we hardly ever look beyond the world we know.

Most people aren’t bothered about something happening thousands of kilometers away on…

The beginning {IBMC 00/10}

Hello everyone ! 😊
So I’ve recently revived my bog after almost a year of inactivity and found that events and challenges have been helpful for me to create some meaningful content. Read further to get an idea for keeping your blog running when you’re short of things to post about. The aim is not to merely churn our pointless posts but to produce some meaningful content when the prompts or challenges connect with you !
Also I would like to know from fellow bloggers,
Where do you find your inspiration ? What content do you love creating ?

Before taking up the Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge (IBMC), I thought it would be fair to express how I came across it and why I want to do it.

I had been writing my travel stories on Tripoto for a few years and was getting good response from fellow travelers. My husband and I share a passion of travelling and he has always encouraged me to write about our trips. It was he who pushed me to start my own blog and that is how the journey of “the drifting satellite” began in the second half of last year. Loaded with new-found enthusiasm, I hoped not only to pen my travel tales, but also my random thoughts once-in-a-while. However, after the first post, I took a long hiatus and somehow did not post a single thing for almost a year. Just last month, I woke up to the realization that…

Mountain or Beach ?

Hi everyone ! 🙂
So are you a mountain person or a beach person ?

Greetings Earthlings ! 😊

This in response to the Daily Post’s One-Word Prompt. Today’s word is : Rhyme

Here’s my impromptu mini rhyme on the title subject:

The mountain and the beach talked heart to heart,

Both extremely proud of their frequent recognition in art,

The beach happily exclaimed, “I am the king of contrast !”

The mountain smirked in response and said “Do you see that massive shadow I cast ?”

A mountain person or a beach person, which one are you they ask ?

You may love both, but picking a favorite is a grueling task. 

The Bay of Bengal

Alamparai Beach Fort, East Coast Road, Tamil Nadu,India


The Himalayas

Manali-Leh Highway, Jammu and Kashmir, India

P.S. My heart tells me I’m a mountain person !

I’d be happy to know which one you are … ? 🙂

Home Away From Home !

Home is not a place, it’s a feeling !

This is in response to theDaily Post’s One-Word Prompt. Today’s word is : Inhabit.

I was planning to write something on this subject for a very long time so I was naturally quite ecstatic to come across today’s daily prompt. I guess this post would serve as a golden opportunity to assert my undying and ever-expanding fondness towards this city I have called home for the last 7 odd years.

I was born and brought up in Delhi, the capital of India. Education and employment drove me out of my happy childhood abode more than a decade ago, but it will inevitably and eternally remain home for me. I moved to Dehradun in the hilly state of Uttarakhand in 2006 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering. The 4 years I spent there in college were truly amazing. Not only did I have a wonderful time…
