The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was first held in 2010. The challenge is that we have to post every day of April, except on the four Sundays. April 1st is a theme with letter A, 2nd with letter B and so on till April 30th which will be Z themed. This year, I’m planning to do short pieces of fiction (not a series), or a poem based on a word with that letter.
The Itchy Palm…
“I told you not to touch the pieces of yam before I put it in water. Didn’t I?” my amma scolded. “The dish won’t be ready just by cutting the yam, Chinnu!”
But I saw her smiling as she took some wheat flour and made a paste with it and applied it on my palms.
“Mummy!” the voice breaks my thoughts and I see my little daughter standing before me, scratching her right palm vigorously. “It itches!”
Like last year, I’m taking the challenge along with my friend Bhavya. We’re writing on the same themes each day, and giving each other the themes on alternate days. Day 25, the word chosen by us was ~Yam~.
