Silent Spectator..

Well, was resting...watched the Dasara proceedings on TV...while having Mom-made stuff at home...

Now, mommy got some leaves of the "bunny" tree--and the 4 of us @ home exchanged "GOLD"---that's how the leaves are supposed to be treated/referred

It wud've been great fun if i was in my village...with tiny gals also draped in Sarees ( & if even younger & smaller...a towel of their farmer-papa's acting as one..! ;-) Aww... )...shyly coming over to exchange these leaves..! :)

I fer one...was smiling HOW it took 6 exchanges among we 4...since it is 4-C-2...LOL..! :)
[Mom did say---"HEY Mr..where are you LOST..?? What u worried bout..?? Huh..?" ]


Oh My! "Blind" Math against "Common-sense"..! :P

Me went out n told Mom & she vehemently said it takes only 4 exchanges...
Me explained to her animated-ly & then ran to my room & produced the following programmatically (fer my satisfaction..! ):

{{Pappa, Mommy}, {Pappa, Sis}, {Pappa, meMoron}, 
{Mommy, Sis}, {Mommy, meMoron}, {Sis, meMoron}}

That is, I created a list of ALL 4 of us...& then generated ALL Permutations of exactly 2 elements, & removed "duplicates"...thanks to the power & compact-ness of Functional Programming...! :)

Phew !! I am a bit dizzy & she got me doubting fer a moment..!

Scepticism !! 

And i gladly welcome it..! :)
{That's why, I am sometimes able to convince my Mommy-dear about the futility & stupidity of some of the things we do...! She is quite scepticism...which is the burden (& SEED !) of Science..! :) }

Lots of Love & ....nothing... :)

Fer a dose of smile &'s frem the genius of Jim Watterson's Garfield.. :) 
Click on it & Smile...Pleeeeeze...??? Thank YOU..! Now, stay THAT way..! :)

The violence of silence..!

Silence can be so Love-ly & Beautiful...if it is natural, like that of a flower, a plant, or a distant star... :)

But there are some kinds of Silence that can be so Hurt-ing...the kind that is IMPOSED...un-Naturally, against the innate nature of a person...the Silence that hides Anger, hatred or helplessness...!!

Feel the below GEM written by a sweet lady--for which I literally scoured the whole of Internet..!

I really do NOT know HOW or WHY i come across and REMEMBER such un-Common gems...

But it really expresses what I have FELT soo much SO Well...!

The boy in rags

Sticks and stones are hard on bones 
Aimed with angry art, 
Words can sting like anything 
But silence breaks the heart.

Ok...some sweet to make you smile after that bitter dose..of truth...! :)
