    Letter from Snowflake
    21/02/2021


    Dear Papa Winter,

    How are you doing pappa? I am so blessed to have a father like you in my life. I owe my existence to you. Mamma Snow is all good. Yesterday i had a phone call with her. Clad in her white saree, she is roosting the mountain tips.

    Everybody says that i look like a junior version of mamma. I don't look like you. It is almost February end now. We are waiting for your homecoming. Mamma will also come home running when you are back. And i will hug my parents.

    Mamma was shouting a lot at me in past few days. As you know i usually stay at our home in Jammu Kashmir only. Maximum i travel to Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Arunachal Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh. She feels that i have to grow up now. I should not be a home bird now. I need to start travelling extensively. I must visit other places in India too. In fact few days back mamma had got a letter from Mumbai from a girl named Meghana. She was pestering that mamma should visit Mumbai once. And if she is busy, then at least she should send me to Mumbai. They would be glad to receive me. It has been many years they have seen mamma and me. They said that just like you make a quaterly visit to them every year, we should also stay with them atleast for a while. So mamma was going mad at me. Luckily she had network issues and the phone got disconnected. Recently my friends wrote a poem on my birthday.

    Snowflake, snowflake, we love you so much,
    You are so delicate and soft to touch...
    Among all of us you are the cutest,
    But your body temperature is always the coldest...

    Okay pappa, am ending the letter now. Miss you a lot. Come home soon now you and mamma. Been too long. I have started crying now. Just one request pappa. There are many clothless and poor people in India. They don't even have homes. At night they lie shivering on streets with no blanket to cover them. I can't see the plight of small kids. Please don't be too harsh on them. Just think how would you feel if i were in their place. Also try inculcating some good deeds in people who lie cozily on their beds with rich blankets covering them. They should think of donating their old clothes and blankets to those in need. Goodbye pappa. Love you tons...

    Your's hexagonal cutiepie,

    Snowflake...

    Dear Organs Of My Body,

    I know that few years back you were a little baffled by my decision. You didn't understand why i did that. Also, i did not take permission of any of you. Not even the Heart who rules my body. I took the decision that involved all of you on my own. I did not care to ask if you all agreed to it. But now it has been some years and hope now you stand by my decision and realize that my decision is not wrong. In fact i feel we all will make each other proud at the right time.

    The readers here are getting confused as to what I am talking about. Okay so let us clear up some things. Before i start the topic, please understand that I am not trying to boast about myself. Neither am I trying to gain appreciation or like a proud mouth keep speaking about it. I am just trying to convey a message that needs to be implemented. If everybody did this, the change would be very impactful.

    Many times in newspapers i used to read about Organ Donation. How Organ Donation is the need of the day. How some people donate the organs of their loved ones and save someone's life. How cadavear donations are increasing, though they are only a handful of percentage than those in need of vital organs. I used to be really impressed that even after your death you can be immensely useful. Only your soul goes. But your presence stays here and you loved ones can be happy in some way. In childhood i remember Aishwarya Rai promoting Eye donation. So my knowledge was limited to only eye donation. But i was interested and i went deeper into this. I researched a lot and came to know that almost all the organs of our body can be helpful in some or the other way. I got in touch with "Mohan Foundation" and asked them a lot of questions before registering. And finally on 26.09.2017 i became a proud "ORGAN DONOR"

    Yes, i have pledged my organs. After my death, all the organs of my body that are in a state of being useful for transplant shall be removed from my body and given to required people. It could be Eyes, Skin, Pancreas, Lungs, Corneas, Kidneys, Liver and Heart. Believe me, this decision of mine has given me the most SATISFACTION till date. I kind of feel that i have "SEALED MY KARMA"

    Organ Donation is still not acknowledged by the society. There is not much awareness too about it. The usual belief is that the body should be burnt or buried as a whole. Missing parts will lead to a crippled body rebirth. Some mythologies also do not support the fact. But it is high time that we get educated not just by books but by thinking too. In life we seldom are useful to anyone. Atleast before facing god, let's do some good act to prove ourselves in front of him.

    I am attaching my Donor card here. I have not been able to convince my friends or family to register themselves as organ donor. But if I can inspire a few Mirakeeans to do this kind act, I will be immensely happy.

    People argue that there is no need to pledge from now. When death comes, our family will do it. Correct. That could be done. But you know, now a days deaths are so uncertain. People are dying at young age all of a sudden. At that time family loses all the consciousness to take decisions. But by registering and letting your family know about it, you yourself as well as others become sure of your decision. It kind of becomes your dream that has to be manifested. A thought that is constantly hammered on everyone is made sure to be taken to the final point. A thought thrust upon your family from now on will not be forgotten by them even at time of losing you.

    Few months back, organs of a 2.5 year old boy from Gujarat saved 7 lives with his heart, liver, kidney, eyes and lungs being donated after his death.

    Don't fear organ donation. You don't know when life will give up on you. You don't give up on something that can serve many in need and also keep you alive in many ways. Just think that you were blind or were in need of a kidney transplant. Would you not eagerly wait and bless someone who would make you see the world or survive you with their kidney?

    There are many organizations where you can pledge your organs. Carry your Donor card with you everywhere. So even if you meet with an accident, your donor card will have the emergency numbers and also of the organization with which you are registered. It is a kind of identity card.

    Okay dear organs, this got too long. Thank you for the support. I just ask a favour from you all. Please be in a workable condition till my end comes. Be in a state that you all could be transplanted. I wish to keep you all alive for years and years... Help me fulfill my wish...

    Your's highly obliged,

    Human body in which you all pump a life...

    Letter to Money
    19/02/2021


    Dear Money,

    You are the Honey of human life. Without you how would we do show-off in society. We can't live without you. Oh money, we are just finding ways on how we can garner more & more of you & make you our status quo. You too have started treating yourself like a king. You have started gaining full control over humans rather than it being the other way round. But i will give you a piece of advice. Better keep your ego to yourself. You don't know us humans yet. We will keep you as per our requirements and needs. We create a barrier of rich and poor and put the blame on you. If we have to save ourselves and you, the most obvious choice would be ourselves. You don't believe me? Okay i will give some examples. You decide then...

    You know i always believed that humans distinguished god's creation on the basis of colour only within its own breed. But i laugh to think that even you are not spared. You are also distinguished as black and white. Your white side is pure and walks on honest path. While your black side is a devil and treads on wrong path. Yet, we humans always love the black side of you and want more and more of the devil. We will lie, backstab and employ unethical means to protect your devilious side.

    Like i told you, humans will protect themselves first. You remember the dreaded 8th Nov, 2016? Well if you remember, then you realize how much respect humans gave you. Government wanted to put your black side in prison. Therefore, to protect their own name the common man threw you away in water though they knew you will die that way. They went to banks and deposited you there. They made their family members stand in line just to get rid of your higher denominations. They were afraid to save you because they were also at risk. Because every human has relations with your devil side.

    Answer me one thing. You can provide luxuries, but can you provide sound sleep and happiness by hovering around humans? Humans like you only till the time you are safe in lockers and bank accounts. They are not ready to keep you much with them. If your paper form gets torn even a bit, nobody accepts you. You are thrown away in dustbin or trampled upon

    Temples, Builders, Contractors, Filmmakers, Businessmen and all the so called rich people value only your devilious side. I don't think they value your purity. They value the benefits that your black side provides eventhough it may be by wrong ways. Sad to say that Doctors, a form of God on earth are also pampering your black side. Goddess Saraswati hangs her head in shame when Education is also in the clutches of your evil side.

    If you observe closely, you might be less in number in a poor's home. But they really respect and treasure the pure side of you. They value every penny of you and have no ties with your bad side eventhough you don't multiply much in their destiny. With whatever little they have of you, they give you away for some noble causes and try to help the needy. But you find more elegance in a rich person's home. You want to multiply ten times over there because they give you beautiful suitcases and lockers.

    Dear money, i don't understand. Till the time humans have less money they are happy and satisfied. But once the urge to accumulate more and more increases, they somehow change. They start disrespecting those who have less of you. I am sorry to say, but you are the prime reason. Why are you a part of such inequality?

    You know what? Humans will never grow up. But you atleast grow up. Don't make the rich more richer. Grow in places where people are willing to part with you only for right ways. Maybe charity, helping those in need or for overall improvement of our country. Don't give momentum to your black side by being with black hearted people...

    I respect you because you carry the Father of the Nation on you. But I don't want too much of you in my life. Only so much that can keep my senses sensible...

    Your's lovingly,

    Middle-class human

    Letter to Creators of Mirakee
    18/02/2021


    Dear Team Mirakee,

    Mirakee Creators, in my life you have been like a Boon,
    The Mirakee Family I am not going to leave so soon...
    Your team mate Writersbay is gaining popularity,
    Among the Mirakeeans is increasing its familiarity...

    Sometimes words fall short to appreciate someone for their good works. There is a lot i want to say and a small poem can maybe convey it better...I LOVE YOU MIRAKEE...Not the lover type of love. I consider Mirakee like a daily dose of drug that keeps my mind invigorated...I am superly addicted to Mirakee and that too a beneficial addiction...

    The two most important things you have given me are RECOGNITION and APPRECIATION...
    I like it when friends and family recognize me as "You write on Mirakee right?"
    "Wow, you write so good"
    This kind of recognition and appreciation is what we all need. Getting recognized or appreciated for things that are routine or everybody does is also important. But for things that showcase a part of who you are or your words speak more than you is truly flattering...
    And Mirakee is the backbone of it. No Mirakee, no existence of a writer called Meghana. The creators of Mirakee have provided a stupendous platform for bringing out our inner being which otherwise would have stayed silent.

    I am really amazed at the different forms of Poems that i learn on Mirakee. It is a learning experience with a fun element. Never did i think that i will write so many poems. I keep adding my posts on watsapp status. My friends and family find it interesting. Many told me that they did not know about something like Syllable count. They also get to know something new.

    Daily new topics and challenges you, Writerstolli, Writernetwork and Writersbay put forward have brought out the raw writer in me to a finished form. Writing on pages of paper for self satisfaction is not a big task. But when you have a healthy competition with so many fellow Mirakeeans, it just keeps you motivated to do better. They selflessly give tips on where i can improve. The quality of their write ups makes me awe in wonder.

    Surely you have received brickbats too for the glitches or spam accounts or any other issue. Sometimes I too have been part of the bandwagon to be honest. But your creation did not collapse. You all did not give up. You patiently answered everything and tried to improve things at your end. You took it all in your stride.

    The letter has become too long. But i would like to ask a favour from you. I would like to meet Team Mirakee. I want to know lot of things from you all. Firstly i want to know how did this concept emerge, whose master mind was behind it? How did you come up with a unique name like Mirakee? What exactly does it mean? Also did you not feel scared while starting Mirakee? It might work but it may not work too. How do you manage a smooth sailing Mirakee family with new and new members being added everyday? A lot to ask when we meet. Catch up with Team Mirakee soon... Ending the letter again with a small poem...

    Mirakee, Mirakee, keep up the good work,
    Don't be fazed away by the negativities that irk...
    Let your mantra be presenting work of quality,
    I know you are progressing with Honesty and Modesty...

    Lovingly yours,

    Always a Mirakeean

    Letter from Winter to Summer
    16/02/2021


    Hey there Summer,

    This is Winter here. Hope you remember your fellow brother. Hope all is well with you. Have not seen you gleaming much these days. All because of me right? My friend the Cool Breeze is reducing your impact. Well it is almost time for me to go now. Was very tired so just took an extended vacation on Earth.

    Well actually this letter i have specially written to make an apology to you. Yes you read it correct. A heartfelt apology. You might think why. So i will tell you. Actually few days back i was very, very angry on you. I was literally pumping with anger. I was angry for many reasons:

    1. See, i always feel that i have to leave because you are in a hurry to come to Earth for your vacation. It is mid January and you start peeping on this Earth. Man, just give me time. I will leave. People love me. Let them enjoy my company for a while. They get sound sleep with me around. And therefore this time i became stubborn. It is more than mid February and I refuse to give in to your demands.

    2. You trouble my friend the Snow a lot. He is stiff and sturdy. Nobody, means nobody can melt his heart. So strong willed he is. But you? You have the guts to melt my friend? I feel so disgusted to see my otherwise strong friend bow down to you with helplessness. He just goes away with other rivers and lakes leaving me behind. I am sad to lose my friend because of you.

    3. Do you think of the people on the Earth? Sometimes you don't even realize how hot you can get. You give so many red rashes to humans. Small kids fear playing in the playground until you stop behaving mean. There are so many stories of dehydration coming out because of you. Humans lose their energy big time and they feel so tired roaming around with you being on their head. They can't sleep at night. No Fan or AC feels sufficient against you.

    So you know because of all these points i was way too angry with you. But then i calmed myself down. Being hot headed was your job, not mine. I thought things over & over. I realized I was wrong. If you have your flaws, you also have great abilities which heal humans.
    If it was not for your sunrays, humans would not grow up so nicely in the first place. Humans require sunrays as an essential nutrient to their body. You help in bone strengthening. These air-conditioned offices have reduced human exposure to you. No wonder people are having Vitamin D deficiencies which is not a good sign. They are popping pills because they are not popping sufficient heat in their body. As regards dehydration, well i think it is good you dehydrate humans. Water is so essential to the body. But it today's stressful life, people ignore drinking water. They gulp down sugar loaded juices and colas. But you make them realise how important water is. When dehydrated, they are forced to drink water which is quite good. Also, if you were not gleaming in full swing, plants & trees would not grow as you provide chlorophyl. No plants and trees means no oxygen and no food. Then humans are doomed.
    So the conclusion is that you are way too important brother.

    And now coming to me being offended because you want to spoil my holidays. Well, you know i am glad that i am not a human. It is the frivolous task of humans to keep fighting over such petty issues. I would be a fool if I think of such stupid things. We seasons are the sons of Mother Sky. We all have a duty towards her. After finishing our task on Earth, we have to return to our Mother. Seasons changing is the law of nature. We have to come and go at appropriate time. Else no one will value us. But humans have been so bad. Their acts are so bad that we sometimes don't know when we have to come & go. I can't see the time because of dust and smog. I land and leave at wrong timings. I end up spreading unseasonal cold and cough. But what is my mistake.

    Now just look at brother Rain. I told him so many times not to throw tantrums. He should leave the Earth at destined time by end of August. But no. Like a jellyfish he is stuck on Earth. Celebrating every festival. Diwali, Christmas and so on. He is spreading so many diseases too. People have started cursing him. Since then he has become little silent. But not for long. June is not far away. God knows what all drama he will do this year. You please watch out for him.

    Your Brother,

    Mr. Cool

    Day 2 Letter to Muse

    Today i am writing about few people whose life has been an inspiration to me. I have met some while heard about some from others. I don't know if this qualifies for this competition for muse actually has a slightly different meaning too. But then sometimes it is the love of writing what your heart says more important than just writing to win a competition.

    Letter to Muse(s)
    16/02/2021


    Dear Muses,

    Muse means a person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. Well i am not an artist. But then Life is sure an Art of Living. For me Muse means the common man who holds a smile on the face inspite of the worst circumstances they have gone through. Whose story never comes in any media. You all are an inspiration to me in improving my Life Art. My outlook towards life totally changed after hearing your stories. After seeing how the dire circumstances did not change your smile. Neither did you start hating life. Rather your dreams propelled further. I too have started seeing life from a different perspective... You all are not Diabled, just Differently Abled...

    Dear Chirag,
    You were a victim of the terrible 2006 train blasts. The impact of the blasts left you paralyzed from below the stomach part. A person who used to walk & run is confined to a wheelchair since last 14 years. When corona started, the first thing you said was that this lockdown situation you faced in 2006 too when for a year you were completely on bed. The most amazing thing about you is that you completed your CA inspite of your situation. Today you successfully run your own CA firm & inspite of the wheelchair your momentum is more than normal people. I am blessed to know about a person like you...

    Dear Nikita,
    You were living normally like any other girl. But suddenly bad times fell and you faced problems with your kidney. One of your parent donated their kidney & the operation was successful. But within a year the problems started again and the kidney failed to suit your body. You underwent another transplant. Life was surely difficult with undergoing risky surgeries for two kidney transplants. And still the sword of uncertainty hangs on you. Swellings remain on your body. But you stand strong. Working in a bank and enjoying life to the fullest. Thanks for being an inspiration...

    Dear Hardik,
    You had gone abroad for your studies. And suddenly you developed some heart ailment. In urgency you were back to India to be with family. Further tests suggested that you undergo an operation. At present you heart runs on a pacemaker. The most vital organ of the body is in danger. But that has not deterred your dreams. You now run your own company in Mumbai and do not have a speck of helplessness on your face. Neither an iota of fear as to what future holds. You motivate me a lot...

    Dear Krunal,
    From being a carefee young lad with dreams in your eyes to being able to walk with the help of a stick, life changes so much. A professional working with TCS, one day while returning to Mumbai from outstation in a train, you suddenly could not move your legs in the morning. You were alone on the train & you could not get down from your seat. Some good samartians helped. Further tests revealed that a deficiency of a Vitamin in your body had freezed your movement. You were suddenly crippled. The easy movement suddenly became too difficult. Now life will never be the same. You have to walk with a stick. You had to leave your job because movement within the office was also very very difficult. Yet you always smile & inspire everyone around you. Hats off to you...

    Well there are many more muses who are an inspiration to me. But i will address them in another letter. This has become too long...Hope you all can read each others' stories and realize that you are not alone. We all have our special journey. I too have mine...

    Yours Truly,

    Meghana Doshi

    Letter to Stranger 15/02/2021

    Dear Stranger,

    I am calling you a stranger because I don't know your name. You might be unaware that yesterday i saw some precious tears roll down your cheeks. Just like how the clouds burst open when they can't hold the water anymore, it seemed your heart could not hold the grief anymore and the tears made an outlet through your eyes. It was a cold winter night. I could feel that your soul was freezed with pain and your face was shivering with untold agonized emotions.

    I just wanted to tell you that I am there for you. I might not know your problems. I might not be able to help you monetarily or in any other way that you might want me to. But i assure you that I can lend a hearing ear to your problem. I will patiently listen if you wish to pour your heart out. I will not judge you. I will try to provide some humble answers if you are at some crossroad over any issue. You might say who am i to tell you all this. True, we are not connected in any way. We are strangers. But we are Humans. A blanket of Humanity i can surely wrap around you and give you an Affectionate Warm Hug. A Bonfire of Compassion can Heal you from the coldness of this world and the aloofness of the people around. In times of scattered relations with known people, an unknown might just be around to help you. God is within each of us. If you wish to reach god, try extending your shivering hand to me. I will hold it till those tears turn into a SMILE...
    Hoping you will trust this stranger and contact me soon...

    Yours Truly,

    Stranger...

    Please bring back Writerstolli

    Dear Mirakee, we would like to know if @writerstolli would be back. To be very honest i really miss their challenges. They introduced a lot of poetry forms, so many memes & the sunday challenges with certificates. The certificates boosted our confidence & it was fun to write for winning the certificate. Even @danny_a introduced lot of poem forms. You and writersbay do provide daily topics but somehow now it is not that much fun. They are just picture prompts or a word is given for a write up. I have not written since many days because i don't see any new poem forms now. No waiting for sunday challenges. Please bring back @writerstolli
