Hello everyone!

Continuing from last Saturday, I bring you another word from Hindi which entered the English vocabulary during the days of the British Raj.

The English word punch originates from ‘paanch’ in Hindi, meaning ‘five’, because of the five ingredients used in it – spirit/soda, sugar, lemon, water and tea/spices. The drink was brought to England from India by the sailors and employees of the East India Company.

So the prompt for 9th Nov, 2019 is “Punch”! Create a post inspired by the prompt – poetry, prose, photo, wherever the prompt takes you. (You need not stick to this meaning of punch.)

Don’t forget to use “Ragtag Daily Prompt” , “RDP” , and “Punch” as tags. If you are sharing a picture, add “photo”. You can pingback your post or leave a link in the comment box. While you are at it, please show some love to fellow bloggers.

Have fun.




  1. Hi RDP followers, the comments were not working this morning so those who wrote or posted photos for the prompt did not link up, nor have they shown up in pending or spam. I will add links for those that I follow, but some of you may want to recheck your link. It seems to be working now.
