1. It was #Holi on 11th March 1990 when I travelled from Jammu to Delhi. I’d unfamiliar faces, smells, sights, behaviours, language&environment around me.

I was traveling but I was not on a vacation. This was the second phase in my #Exodus journey #KashmiriHindu #MyStory
2. As we neared Delhi, some people started to lower the glass windows which I found puzzling as the weather was nice and breezy. But I soon realised it when I saw water balloons bursting on the window with coloured water designing the glass temporarily.

3. This was my 1st tryst with Holi celebrations. It was celebrated in Jammu but never in #Kashmir & it seemed fascinating to me as a kid. Since Jan 1990, we like lakhs of #Hindus from Kashmir had undergone immense mental, financial&psychological turmoil due to #IslamicTerrorism

After almost a year of war…

I would like to show you my Kyiv what it was like before the war.
Peaceful, beautiful, with children's laughter and happy people.
Alive, developing, real.
He will always be like that. And after the war, it will be even better.

We will win🇺🇦
A little bit of my Kyiv.

before the war.

P.S. Unfortunately, after uploading the video to Twitter, the quality of the video is very lost. The platform squeezes video a lot.

A very interesting word in #Hindu #Philosophy.
Vairagya is not #Sanyas, which calls for renunciation and distancing. Sanyas is a choice. Vairagya is a state of mind.
Vairagya connects people
#happiness #success #failure #hinduphilosophy #goals #subgoal #goal #goalsetting
with that one goal of every individual, which is to be #happy. As simple as that. Every individual breaks this goal into sub-goals based on their own perceptions. Good school, good learning, good grades, good college, good job, good money, good partner & suchlike...summarized
as a good life.

Vairagya doesn't come in the way of the goals, whatever we choose for ourselves. It only never allows one to forget that the larger goal is happiness. The subgoals are NOT the main goals. Under this thought process, words like #success and #failure lose...

It's my #birthday today. Also happens to be the day where my father's monthly ritual in the first year falls on. We decided to not celebrate this year.
However, on the spirit of birthday, wanted to share an anecdote that is a bit light and funny #memories
I always knew that my #father named me. However, I did not know (or forgot) why. My mother told me about this when we were reminiscing about him.
My father studied at AM Jain, Loyola and MIT, Chrompet
I believe played tennis for the college teams. He was also captain in one of the places.
After graduating from Loyola, he once went back there and in a conversation with the PT master/tennis coach, he was told that there are two new boys who are playing well.

The Hulu documentary about the Lakers has reached the Nick Van Exel/Eddie Jones era! This was the Lakers era where I was in elementary school and just had all of these jerseys
I still have jerseys of both these dudes. Then they both got traded away during the Del Harris era as Kobe grew into himself. I was heartbroken when Eddie Jones left.
I was even super sad when Elden Campbell was traded for Glen Rice. “We need Elden!”

[#Memories | Modibo Keita, inventeur de l’expression « non-aligné »]
En septembre 1961, la Conférence de #Belgrade a réuni les leaders de 25 pays dont Modibo du 🇲🇱. Elle a permis la naissance du mouvement des « non-alignés », une 3ème alternative aux #USA et l’ex-#URSS.

Avant le discours de Modibo à #Belgrade, on les appelait : "les pays non-engagés".

💬 " Nous voici donc réunis à Belgrade, à la conférence historique des pays non- alignés et je dois confesser que je préfère l’expression « Non-alignés » à celle de « non-engagés".

A l’issue de cette conférence historique, le mouvement confie au malien 🇲🇱 Modibo Keita, la mission de se rendre aux États Unis pour expliquer au Président américain 🇺🇸 John F. Kennedy la position des "Non-alignés".

#FathersDay2022 Childhood memories, temple visits, Tirupati,, flowers, fun. A man of few words & silent strength. Generous and helpful to all with a smile no matter how exhausted. #Memories
This modern pseudo feminism trend I don’t get. Fathers worked hard, shared their good fortune with the entire family. Never made it an I thing. Both partners did their duty. The woman was the nurturer.
There are such wonderful attributes in being a woman. She’s a nourisher, nurturer, a mother, a sister, a wife. A woman doesn’t need to adopt any manly traits to appear strong. She is born strong. That’s why she carries the child & gives birth.

CW : #Death
It's 13 days since my #father passed away unexpectedly. A very important day in terms of religious ceremonies in #Hinduism. A day to celebrate and #remember the person. In some ways, as positive a day as it is possible given the circumstances.
#memories #parent
On this day, I wanted to share a light hearted #story.
My #father used to travel to Bombay (now #Mumbai) by air. It is over 1000 kms from our city. He would normally take his bicycle, park it in a garage, take a train to the airport to catch his flight.
The return would be the same way.
As I saw him go and come back in his bicycle,I would tell everyone that my #father goes to Bombay and back in his bicycle! 😂😂😂

I have been thinking about samosas for the last week & here is a thread about them. For starters the Samosa comes from West Asia and was originally meat wrapped in a dough cone and fried - the sambusak! The only truly veg versions are all Indian! #Samosa #Sambusak #PunjabiSamosa
I grew up in Mumbai eating what is now known as the Parsi/Bohri Samosa and which I simply knew as a Samosa. Lightly spiced lamb mince cooked with onions, green chillies and corriander, stuffed into a triangular pocket made from flat precooked sheets of samosa patti. #Samosa
These were then slowly fried in hot (not too hot) oil till golded brown & served with a typically Parsi Green chutney made with coconut, mint, corriander, peppercorns, green chutney & lime juice. These treats were rare and cherished! #Samosa

Day off.

For no particular reason, here’s @isitt_ using his position at the Council table Feb 13, 2020 to read a letter he wrote to one of the owners of @HarbourCats in their capacity as Chair of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, who Isitt claimed had defamed him. #yyj
I asked Isitt about it the next day. It’s unusual to see an elected office holder (who later voted on matters that could directly impact the team partly owned by the recipient of Isitt’s letter) to use a council seat in this fashion.

Isitt did not recuse himself Thursday. #yyj
Instead of recusing himself Thursday from a matter potentially impacting the sports team partly owned by the recipient of Isitt’s Feb 13, 2020 letter alleging defamation (above), Isitt predicted potential problems with “fecal matter” proximate to the sports field.

Neat. #yyj.

Right, following on from this thread about #IntrusuveThoughts, a lot of people have commented about embarrassing memories that pop up out of the blue and make them cringe all over again.

That's a different, if related, phenomenon. Here's my understanding of why it happens

First and foremost, it's important to recognise that the fundamentals of the human brain's memory system were laid down looooong ago. Before we were even human. Consciousness and rational thought are far more recent developments, evolutionary-speaking

One upshot of this is that our memory system is often the result of new software running on old hardware.

A lot of the brain is like this, in fairness, and it causes a lot of issues. I *may* have written a book all about it…

12 de Octubre! Hoy es el aniversario de #SatoshiKon, el famosísimo director de anime. Una persona que se fue demasiado pronto pero que nos dejó unas obras de arte tremendas, hilo va! ImageImage
Su filmografía es muy breve, pero muy reconocida. En primer lugar tenemos #PerfectBlue, del año 1997. Un trhiller psicológico, una historia acerca de la industria de las idols, no digo más!
Aquí os dejo la ficha de filmaffinity, para el que le interese:… Image

I’m going to post this tonight because I have purposely planned a day away from screens tomorrow. It is the 20th anniversary of 9/11 down here in Australia and I am going to pack a picnic and spend it at the idyllic Rainbow Bay. Today has been a slow sink into the PTSD that 2/
has shaped my life since that day. What can I tell you? 6:45am I arise to feed George Eliot my cat. I amble half asleep to the kitchen and put the coffee on. 7:10 am- showered and and sitting with my first double shot coffee and cigarette of the day. Turn the tube on 3/

My cousin the „Jungpionier“

Although my cousin, born in March 1983, so the same year as I, just 8 months before, she was the only one of us two that actually became a real "Jungpionier", because she started school in 1989. Image
I on the other hand was denied this "award". Unbelievable! She also had the pleasure of eight weeks of summer vacation, at least once in her life.
I had my first day of school in August 1990, a few weeks before the German reunification.
So by then, the fall of the Berlin Wall was less than a year ago and I proudly displayed my white dress with its purple silk bow and uncomfortable patent leather shoes at the „Einschulung“ (first day of school).

Since 2003, Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day is celebrated every year in Baler 🇪🇸🇵🇭 This time has a special meaning, as it marks five centuries of shared #memories between Spain and the ‘Pearl of the Orient’. New post on… [THREAD]
On March 2021, 500 years have gone by since the Spanish expedition, led by Ferdinand Magellan, arrived in the archipelago of the current Philippines, after 17 months of sailing into the unknown in search of a new route to the Spice Islands (Malaku or the Moluccas) (2/11)
That first meeting between the East and the West in Suluan and Homonhon was very cordial. Pigafetta described it as “... to celebrate a ceremony of our worship. The King [of Samar] approved everything and sent us two recently slaughtered pigs”. It was Easter Sunday (3/11) 🙏

* #Gratitude*
I keep a "memory jar" for each year wherein I write in brief the best moments of my life & lessons learnt. Even a small event which taught me something goes in it .
I strongly believe in " No regrets, only lessons learnt ".
( That's handpainted by me! :) )
Occasionally when I have a rough day or when I am elated , I go through the chits one by one savouring the lessons learnt . It keeps me grounded. Makes me realise I am blessed to have had so many #memories & grown as a person and that life is beautiful !! 😇
Things that happen to us, just happen. It is we who perceive it to be good or bad as per our emotions at play. It is then that practising gratitude becomes of utmost importance for we need to realign our thoughts towards #positivity& #contentment & steer away from negativity.
