[Contest][150 Hive in prizes] A letter to the Past

in BDCommunity4 years ago (edited)

It seems the winter season in Bangladesh is almost at its end, signified by the withering away of the pretty mustard flowers. As they say, everything good must come to an end, our writing contest too is at its final segment now.

In the last contest, we got a total of 29 submissions! And boy, oh boy, were they mesmerizing! Did you know that roughly five million two hundred fifty-six thousand minutes not counting the extra days of leap years adds up to be ten years? 525600! Yeah, I think not. Because I too did not. I only understood the exponentiality of so long of a time when I read one of our winner @deepu7 sentry, and it was marvelous none the less. And then came our most beloved @sayee with her third spot who wants to see her self living a comfortable life with a teensi hint of crypto mixed in it. And then, our one of the most prolific author @surrealfia wants to stay the way she is. Signs of a life led with happiness and virtuoso. Makes you ponder does it not? Then what about a jump back in time?

Writing to yourself ten years from now is a relatively straightforward concept. You can easily send a message forward in time seeping with exasperating positivity! But what about we send the exact same letter back in time? Would it still sound the same? As the Bengali saying goes, যায় দিন ভালো, আসে দিন খারাপ, we take it that everything is bound to happen as it is meant to be and so what happened, happened as it was supposed to have. But what if we could change it! Well, we cant as time travel is still only hypothetical, but for what its worth, what harm is in it only to write a letter.

Thanks once again! I was looking back at my google photos and it reminds me a lot! It was the difficult and most uncertain moment of my life. I do not know where to start but I would write, not to win but to as I always wanted to.

Bless @bdcommunity

Excellent initiative, it has made me think. I tried not to cry while writing, my feelings came out.

Thank you so much for considering my entry. It was a real challenge of sorts to decide what to write and I am glad I made some effort. The next contest is also really challenging because when we look back into the past, we will surely feel we could have done a lot better than what we did or what happened for that matter. I for one could have been a lot braver and stood for myself, I feel.
Thanks again and looking forward to what people are going to write.

I finally made it yeet. Good luck to the other participants.

very interesting contest, am glad I participated, hope you love what you read

First time I see a mustard flower, so nice
