By far the best book I have read in a long long time.
One can simply begin from any page,for each note makes so much sense that we get lost in them , sometimes chuckling & often amazed .

Here are MY learnings from
" A Book of Simple Living" by Ruskin Bond.
The book is enriched with life lessons . Most profound of all for me being ,

#Life is simple despite all its hardships and complexities .
For the purpose of life is to live ....

Now, how we choose to live our life makes it simple or complicated.

Do we chase #happiness by climbing infinite mountains in the quest for fame & wealth or do we savour the goodness in the little things that often come our way but go unnoticed and unappreciated by us ?
For ultimately , " It is the little things that matter the most ".

As kids saw ‘Bi-scope’ wala in our street in Lahore
The chant that I remember was:

Barah maan ki dhoban dekho
Dili a katab manar dekho
Dekho Gama palwan dekho
Aur bahut sa aur saman dekho
Aa jao aa jao doo paiaa mae sara Jahan dekho!

Then we got a View Master (late 1950 early 1960) & grandfather moved to Gulberg
Street life was left behind in Kucha Kakezain, Dili Darwaja, Sanda & Ichra; Ladu pethian walay & katlama included!

Places where perhaps a part of me still lives! ImageImageImageImage
If in another life a picture were taken I would’ve been the headstand kid!

Speaking of 'uncomfortable, narrative busting truths'....any update on this story @ggreenwald? You know, in the interest of accountability, which you so preach.
Really strange that every time there's an UNCOMFORTABLE, NARRATIVE BUSTING TRUTH about the story that @ggreenwald has fixated on, perhaps more tha anyone else in 'journalism', the past 4+ years, he goes silent. Odd.

A nice box, isn’t it? Neapolitan, hand painted, has recently surfaced from old stuff which originally belonged to my great grandfather Aniello Salzano. #memories 1/1 @MariuzzoAndrea @AntonioBanfi1 @GioB1974

He studied agriculture in Naples, went to Libya to work as an agronomist. When Italy entered In the war on the side of Germany and Japan, Umberto joined the army. He was in Greece. 1/3

Sisa-sisa beberes beberapa waktu lalu: kaset tape.

Meski dibuang sayang, tapi di rumah bonyok nggak terawat karena emang lembab di sana. Akhirnya dibuang karena emang nggak bisa diapa-apain lagi. Ini momen terakhir sebelum dibuang.

Setiap kaset memiliki perjuangan masing-masing untuk membelinya. Maklum, harga kaset kala itu sekitar 20k sementara uang jajan cuma 1k. Di lain pihak, kebutuhan jajan dan main PS masih menjadi yang utama. Jadi, meski berat, tetap harus menyisihkan demi album band favorit.
Linkin Park: Reanimation
adalah kaset pertama yang gue beli dengan duit sendiri (duit dikasi nyokap maksudnya). Waktu itu band Linkin Park sedang naik daun. Lagu Crawling dan In The End hampir selalu muncul di radio dan televisi. Oia, waktu itu keluarga kami sudah punya tv.

Since this generated some interest, let me share that it took me a lot of growing up (and world travel) to start appreciating my family’s food. I say family, because just like language, there is no #Bihari food. This is the story of my grandparents n food n let me say it briefly
She was 13, raised by a young widow who had 2 daughters. No man in the house meant no proper cooking. So milk and rice was a decent meal and gur was a great dessert! He was 11, eldest son of a beautiful, arrogant, eccentric (she went stark mad when they lost the estate) woman.
His mother was known for her cooking and famously boasted that she could cook grass (we did have a lot of the glam variety, but she meant the humble grass) and the diner wld chew his fingers! They got married. He continued to get his mama’s food, she anyway got leftovers!

Deputy City Attorney Erin Kuka here. I took over my office’s account today! (Thx, Dennis!)

It’s a big day bc our case re the 2020 census is at the U.S. Supreme Court! I’ve been on the case since day 1, and today I’ll tell you everything you need to know. #Census2020 #SCOTUS
First, what’s happening today? We’re in a coalition that banded together to fight injustice. Barbara Underwood from @NewYorkStateAG and @dale_e_ho from @ACLU are arguing for all of us.
No cameras or phones are allowed in the Supreme Court, but SCOTUS will release a transcript later today—I’ll post as soon as it’s out. #HittingRefreshAllMorning #Patience

In late-August of 2010, my dear first-cousin was diagnosed with inoperable, non-curable, small-cell lung #cancer. He and I were raised like #siblings and cared for one another as brother and sister, a very close-knit family.
My #cousin was an amazing man, husband, and father to twin boys; who were only 14 when he died in September 2017. He died at his home, surrounded by his family and friends…just how he’d wished.
Of course, he only had these wishes after his experiences spending extended periods of time in clinics, hospitals, and laboratories. Blood draws, lung scans, injections, medications, #chemotherapy, hospitalizations, emergency room visits from all the awful side-effects of his...

Gobsmacked & a bit depressed to realise it was 2 years today @ObserverUK published this..
..because what has changed?? The tech giants are still absolutely unaccountable. Our democracy is still absolutely fucked. I'm just 2 years older (& much more tired)…
Reasons to be cheerful? That after coming after me personally, & @guardian, Google decided to finally do something about the searches that suggested all jews were evil...
...we have no idea how long @google was telling the world that every woman had "some degree of prostitute in her". But it's a fair guess to think it was right the way through the year that changed everything, 2016

#OSHO #hypnosis

The #unconscious #mind is nine times bigger than the #conscious; it has tremendous treasures, all the memories of your past.

Below the unconscious, there is the collective unconscious. One can descend into the collective unconscious also with somebody’s help.
The master of Mystery School will take you slowly towards the unconscious and the collective #unconscious.

In your collective unconscious, you have memories of your #PastLives as animals, as birds.
Below the collective unconscious is the #cosmic #unconscious.

Slowly, slowly one can go deeper and deeper, and the cosmic unconscious has #memories of your being trees, rosebushes, stones.

ELECTION NIGHT THREAD: This will be my thread for the night, starting with this great story from @katherinemiller, with its hour-by-hour accounting of what is going on tonight and when it's (likely) going to happen.…
And ... polls are closed in Kentucky and Indiana.
NOTE: As happens every election, there'll be a couple polling places/counties in several states that stay open later due to issues from earlier in the day. So, check your specific county/polling place if you need to vote! For ex, Monroe County in Indiana:…

Remember when former EPA Administrator lied three times under oath but only the Executive Branch could’ve held her criminally responsible, we all know how that went. @GOP need to grow a pair and start defending @EPAScottPruitt #MondayMotivation…
Oh look, there’s former @EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy hanging out at the Olympics in Rio and guess what? She flew there first class🔍✈️💸 #BootPruitt #memories
Gina McCarthy hooked her buddies up at Harvard with $45 million in grants, for an alleged independent study but it was in close contact with them the whole time but all we’re going to hear about is a $43k sound booth in a government office🙄 #ScottPruitt #Hypocrisy

Remember in 2014 when 20 press watchdog groups pleaded with President Obama to fire @JohnBrennan because he hacked Senators computers, filed criminal charges against staffers and lied to the IG? Yet now his wild accusations are biblical to the press? #Memories #Obamagate
Remember that @CREWcrew @FreedomofPress @demandprogress @ConstitutionCtr @PENamerican @SunFoundation you were also very disappointed in the complete lack of transparency that Obama had promised. Somehow @MSNBC forgot about that🤷🏼‍♀️ #Brennan
Oh @SenFeinstein surely YOU remember, back then you had quite the speech about #JohnBrennan and then @VICE obtained a never sent apology from Brennan AND the CIA asked for it back 😂because it made it clear HE LIED (he does that a lot) #ObamaGate #Hypocrisy
