How to become rich! (‘GIFT’: a short film)

I was tempted to skip this week’s WoW prompt, but then I came across a lovely piece on NDTV. I’m sharing this link to a short film called GIFT. Please watch this short film. You will have to spend less than 8 minutes of your valuable time, but it’s worth watching.

I’m pleased to confirm that I’m participating in the April A to Z Challenge.

In the April A to Z Challenge, participating bloggers post every day except Sundays during April, with the topic on April 1 starting with A, the topic on April 2 starting with B, and so on, ending with the topic on April 30 starting with Z.

My A to Z posts will generally focus on positive, truly heart-warming incidents involving ordinary persons whom we can all emulate. My A to Z Challenge Theme is:

26 Positive Takes on Life

The topics of my first five A-Z posts are:
April 1: Appreciation
April 2: Benefit of doubt
April 3: Customer delight
April 4: Dignity of labour
April 5: Empathy

I welcome you to read all my April A to Z Challenge posts and comment on them.

Have a nice weekend!

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda (Prompt: the post must contain ‘I was tempted’.)

A-Z Theme: 26 Positive Takes on Life

A-to-Z-Challenge-theme-reveal[1]On February 11, 2014, I learnt from ‘Incredible Blogger’ Vidya Sury about April A to Z Challenge and the March 21 A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal.

In the April A to Z Challenge, participating bloggers post every day except Sundays during April, with the topic on April 1 starting with A, the topic on April 2 starting with B, and so on, ending with the topic on April 30 starting with Z.

Participants who choose to base all their A to Z posts on a theme of their choice can take part in the March 21 A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal by publishing a post on March 21 giving details of their theme.

Since there was ample time to prepare for it, I decided take part in the April A to Z Challenge.

My regular posts generally focus on looking for solutions to social ills, big and small. While the focus is positive (looking for solutions), the posts generally start on a negative note (some social ill).

I decided that the April A to Z Challenge presented me with a wonderful opportunity to balance 11 months of “fault-finding” by 1 month of positive stuff! Hence my A to Z posts will generally focus on positive, truly heart-warming incidents involving ordinary persons whom we can all emulate. Hence, I decided that my A to Z Challenge Theme would be:

26 Positive Takes on Life

Since I’ll be publishing twice as many posts during April as compared to the other months, my A-Z posts would generally be around 50 % shorter than my regular posts.

I’ll go a small step further and reveal the topics of my first five A-Z posts:

April 1: Appreciation
April 2: Benefit of doubt
April 3: Customer delight
April 4: Dignity of labour
April 5: Empathy

I hope you all enjoy reading and commenting on all my April A to Z Challenge posts.
