Retention 1024x576Everyday my dear granny goes to temple,

 To light candles before God,

 She prays on bended knees for our well fare,

My dear granny cook food for me every day,

People say granny does her routine duty,

But friends more than routine duty,

 She is more exposed to same activity,

Like a golfer practicing a swing thousands of times.

 That makes stronger connections,

 Between neurons in granny’s brain,

In return she gets gift of God-good Memory.


People also ask me how come your granny,

 Is so active and energetic with sound memory,

The secret is my granny also does project challenging,

 Along with her routine duties with amicable joy,

She does creative activities like reading fictions and painting,

 Learns new skills to make her brain active and strong.


Fact is each of the brain’s 100 billion nerve cells,

 Can have 10,000 connections to other nerve cells.

These creative projects my granny does,

 Makes- synapses, creates new circuits,

 Between nerve cells, which essentially remaps her brain.

The sheer number of possible connections due to creative activities,

Gives granny’s brain unfathomable flexibility,

 And builds up functional reserves,

 That provide safety valve against future cell-neurons loss,

That makes granny’s memory strong.


If my granny avoids doing creative challenging activities,

Then some parts of her brain’s neurons,

 Which are not being used regularly,

 Will automatically get pruned,

Granny’s brain will be in state of mental pruning,

That will make granny’s memory weak.


Friends! to retain good memory -gift of God, best is one should remain,

 Engaged in creative activities like my granny,

 Let ones brain do challenging activities,

So to have strong connection between neurons of brain,

As memory is game of connections,

Please do treasure this God gift of good memory.
