#IAmSoOld that I know of a time when school bags would be horizontal, instead of the vertical ones of today!!
#IAmSoOld that I remember a time when selecting such labels for books / notebooks was a major event at the beginning of every school year!

Trump tries to say "plague" but says "pledge," then talks about how great the economy used to be and cites a bunch of outdated statistics. #nostalgia
I challenge you to count the number of meaningless corporate buzzphrases Ivanka Trump uses in this clip
"Thank you very much, honey" -- Trump to his senior White House adviser

In the deepest recesses of my memory are images of illustrated classics that have stayed with me and still give me a thrill. One such image is of a raft-wrecked and exhausted Odysseus who is desperately trying to make his way to land but is confounded by the vengeful Poseidon
who brews vicious storms and mighty waves. The artist in that comic book captured it so well. I just saw that image again after decades & it evoked so many memories. Years later as I revisit the The Odyssey through a late 19th century translation and read the following:
I am reminded of the feeling of awe that it first inspired:

"So for two nights and two days he was wandering in the swell of the sea, and much his heart boded of death ... but when he was within earshot of the shore, and heard now the thunder of the sea against the reefs ..

Live tweeting re-watch of #MainPremKiDiwaniHoon henceforth to be referred to as #MPKDH

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

My parents moved out of Chennai to settle in kumbakonam 4 years ago. I was here three years ago with “more than I could handle” set of issues. I’m back 3 years later at ease with only one motive ‘RELAX’. Life here is a mix of the modern and orthodox.
My parents have adapted so easily probably because this is how it was while they were growing up, the current old style was the only style when they were young.
I was always the kitchen help, running errands everyday till my teens until board exams took over. She used to give me a wired bag to buy stuff and it was an involuntary action to pick it up while getting out. I don’t remember when I changed and carry bags literally blinded me.

... sometimes solving one problem begets another. #Igbo culture most laudably seems to be pushed by those in diaspora, as seen on the social media. However, 90% of what is shown is mainly #masquerading and #dances. Very beautiful. Moreover, there is need to emphasis other aspects
Like marriage, farming, food, poetry, arts & crafts, industry, commerce, architecture etc. There has been a great awakening; most nostalgia and sometimes, a relapse because one can't compete with global trends. Idolatry is on the increase pitched unto 'say' Omenala, our #culture.
African Traditional #Religion (ATR) especially as practiced by ndi Igbo was just a tip of the iceberg about their culture. It was the culture of a typical Igbo person not to go hungry, as such manliness, was measured by the number of yam tubers one had in his barn and other #farm

சானிட்டரி நாப்கின்கள் சென்னை மேயராக 2006-11 காலகட்டத்தில் மா.சுப்பிரமணியன் இருந்தபோது மாநகராட்சி பள்ளிகளில் தான் முதலில் அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்பட்டது என காலையில் ட்வீட் செய்தேன். மாணவியாக நானும் இதனால் பயனடைந்திருக்கிறேன். திட்டம் பற்றி அறிய இணையத்தில் தேடினேன்
அதில் The Hindu இணையத்தில் அக்டோபர் 23, 2008 இல் முதல்கட்டமாக சென்னை மாநகராட்சி பள்ளிகளில் சானிட்டரி நாப்கின்கள் வழங்கும் திட்டம் அப்போதைய சமூக நலத்துறை அமைச்சர் கீதா ஜீவனால் அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்பட்டிருக்கிறது.. அதிலுள்ள புகைப்படத்தை பார்த்ததும் ரொம்ப ஆச்சர்யமாகிடுச்சு...
அந்த புகைப்படத்தில் பள்ளி மாணவிகளாக ... நான் புகைப்படத்தில் இல்லை..வகுப்பு தோழிகள் இருக்கின்றனர்.

"About the future I only can reminisce

For what I've had is what I'll never get

And although this may sound strange

My future and my past are presently disarranged

And I'm surfing on a wave of nostalgia for an age yet to come..."
Really - people write off most of punk as working class idiocy. So much of it is deep, political, - beautiful...and relevant.

OKAY, OKAY, FINE, I WILL TWEET THE BROKEN-HEARTED CRUSH LETTER. But first, we'll need some backstory...
2/ It is 2008, & I live in Edinburgh. I work at a Blackwell's Bookshop, on the 2nd floor. My job is to order academic texts for the store. I am okay at it, not great. One afternoon, I'm working at the counter beside this lovely young chap named Greg. We are bantering, as we do.
3/ Then, suddenly, the cutest, sexiest blonde walks up to the counter. She's wearing a black leather jacket and has a motorcycle helmet under her arm.
