Today’s Daily Prompt is A Bird, a Plane, You!:
You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:
~the ability to speak and understand any language
~the ability to travel through time
~the ability to make any two people agree with each other
Why not the other two?
I sometimes enjoy going to places, where I can’t understand the local language, then I find it easier to just ignore the sound around me. I’ll never know if the people around me bitches about me, praises me or ignore me.
I believe the effort needed to communicate when two people don’t understand each other’s language, is an interesting experience.
Among the few skills I have, I don’t consider socializing to be one of them. So, I really can’t care too much if two people wants to disagree with each other. I don’t want to force them, to do otherwise.
Maybe, yeah maybe, sometimes, I like when two people disagree about something.
Why I want to travel through time?
It’s because reading through the pages of my history books, I have always felt a strong desire to have an actual experience of the time written about.
I wish to have a first hand experience of the Indian royalty. Decked up in heavy ornaments and attires, I wish to experience the princess-ly treatment.
I wish to travel around the city riding a horse sometimes and sitting in the palanquin other times.
I wish to actually see the lives in the forts, which are just a part of tourist attraction today.
I wish to be a part of the Colonized India. I wish to put my hatred and anger that I feel now, when I read about that time, to proper use, by going back to that time.
I wish to tell my countrymen the wrong steps they took, and how it finally lead to the destruction of the country.
I wish to be a part of that moment, when the country finally was freed and became independent.
