If wishes came true what will you wish for? Here is what you have said in our #TuesdayTalkies segment.

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” — George Bernard Shaw

Do wishes come true?‘ — a question that has intrigued the human mind since time immemorial. Whether it’s wishing upon a shooting star; or making a wish at the stroke of 11:11; or even wishing on a full moon night, humans have always desired a little bit of magic in their lives. So, it won’t be surprising to say that sometimes, if not always, we all have wished to own a magical lamp with which we could do a little bit of rub-a-dub-dub and a big blue ‘Genie‘ would ‘swoosh’ out, nod his head off to our wish and make it come true. A definite algorithm for making all our wishes come true! Sounds great, isn’t it!

At Women’s Web, we invite readers to share their thoughts on one interesting question that is picked by the team and posted on our Facebook page every Tuesday, calling it #TuesdayTalkies. We try picking questions that would interest readers and put them in their thoughts.

Some of the best replies are posted in our next story and one of them also gets to win a Women’s Web mug. Why don’t you try your luck in the next week’s question?

The question for this week was, “You will be granted one wish, what will you wish for?” Here are 9 best responses from our readers.
