Datta. Dayadhvam. Damyata. 

April is the cruellest month.7 days more. One Week.
Brace yourself you all.April is the cruellest month.One Week.
HaHaHa.DA DA DA.I will show you fear in a handful of dust! 

Leaned out, leaning, hushing the room enclosed.  
Footsteps shuffled on the stair.  
Under the firelight, under the brush, her hair  
Spread out in fiery points  
Glowed into words, then would be savagely still.
 
‘My nerves are bad to-night. Yes, bad. Stay with me.  
‘Speak to me. Why do you never speak? Speak.  
‘What are you thinking of? What thinking? What?  
‘I never know what you are thinking. Think.’ 

First the gods say to Prajapati: “Teach us, please, sire!” and in response, Prajapati utters a single syllable: “Da”. Then he says to them: “Have you understood?”. The devas reply: “Yes, we have understood. You said to us, damyata: be self-controlled.” Prajapati says: “Yes, you have understood well.”

The humans ask Prajapati: “Teach us, please, sire!” and once again Prajapati utters: “Da”. He asks them: “Have you understood?” The humans reply: “Yes, we have understood. You said to us, datta: give.” Prajapati says: “Yes, you have understood well.”

The titans ask Prajapati: “Teach us, please, sire!” and yet again Prajapai utters the single syllable: “Da”. He asks, “Have you understood?” The titans reply: “Yes, we have understood. You said to us, dayadhvam: be compassionate.” Prajapati says: “Yes, you have understood well.”

It’s so elegant  
So intelligent
‘What shall I do now? What shall I do?’  
‘I shall rush out as I am, and walk the street  
‘With my hair down, so. What shall we do to-morrow?  
‘What shall we ever do?’

Reading. The WasteLand . In Office.

Giving. Self Control. Compassion.

    Congratulations man! 250 posts you should be proud of. I assume you are Prajapathi…lol!

    You have made an impact on blogosphere with this blog. I must confess that I often forget you have an equally good, probably more creative blog running too, ever since you returned to Kerala besides giving this blog a new look. The best thing I love about your ideas is that they don’t necessarily identify with the party.

    Cheers then…i know you will keep giving me high quality articles here.
