My mother placed me in an educational institution when I was five, and I remained in one ever since! However, much learning is available away from organised set-ups. Sharing experiences is a wonderful human activity.

Being Weighed.

How much should one weigh ?


If one is weighed for knowledge, a little learning is a dangerous thing ;

If weighed for wealth, the richness in good deeds matters most;

If weighed for kindness there is never an excess;

If weighed for body mass, brain weight is the winner;

Weigh your words when judging people;

Weigh one plan against or in favour of others to arrive at the destination without fuss and strain;

When weighing anchor at the end, sail happily through life without regrets;

Never let your decisions to weigh heavily against others;

Lest not the judgment be: "you have been weighed and found wanting."

War of the Poses.

If and when you pose like a prince or princess you become one.

Some time ago a person made an appearance on the silver screen, hidden in a numerous audience, but posing like a royal and attired in a peculiar but in a peculiar but elegant fashion. Needless to say, his presence was quickly noticed and was soon enjoying a close-up on the screen. His newly discovered talent consisted in impersonating famous people of recent or bygone times.

The pose portrayed left nothing to be desired. Movement was perfectly on the beat, costume in line with the epoch, and speech with the proper undulations and timed falling and rising.

This stunt takes place all the time, everywhere. Real life impersonation has become so popular. People act a part of which they do not have the slightest knowledge of. And yet they manage to pose with the most important and influential group photos.

Some scalawags are so good at it that they can get away with anything. Take, for example the case of ___Bucklemyshoe, who after attending surgery interventions on the battle front, managed to set up a prosperous surgery clinic in another place, next to the hometown. The reputation was so great that it attracted the attention of the peer group concerned.  

People pose to attract attention. Acting has become part of life, until, of course somebody is clever enough to call your bluff.

Basic values

 An exhaustive list of  basic values may be too long not to be boring. Priorities differ according to many factors depending on environment, social situations and luck. The list following is only some suggestions not entered in any priority order. This all depends on how one looks at it:
The point is now to add to this list or delete the boring ones and an attempt to put the remaining list in an order of priority.

Locked up !

I only realised the truth of "I am never less alone, than when I am alone," when I was recently inadvertently locked up in a the library of the village.

Admittedly the library is only a very modest one, but it treasures a few hundred thousand books nonetheless. What are missing are the latest technologies. There is not, in fact, a signal that warns users of closing time.

Truly chronometers on the wrists or hanging on the walls are not enough for the absorbed user. to make matters even worse, the cellular mobile telephone was left behind.

There was nothing else to do except waiting for opening hours in the following morning, and pass the time with all the names that populated the library.

There was time enough to meet Dickens, Stevenson and Hugo. They were so kind to let me share their writing imagination. In the silence of that night, an angelic whisper drew my attention. It was Juliet who so tenderly let me into the secrets of her love. The bard's lines became astonishingly meaningful.

It was indeed very saddening that the break of light put an abrupt end to my fortunate misfortune.

Maybe next time to be locked up I shall meet more of my friends on the shelves.

Sophie's brain and her other gifts.

Sophie's latest discovery was that she too had a brain. And it still works. Sophie's brain is not the one and only gift that she has. In fact she has many others.

Like everyone else the mixture of mental elements and the others are very well balanced, though sometimes she appreciates much more her intellectual prowess, others are not so sure whether her other visible gifts should be awarded first in their class.

True that when younger she most often than not carried away most of the academic prizes available within her peer groups, but pride never entered her mind and she always behaved in a very modest way. Speaking about modesty, it was not so evident in her attire, which was helpful in exposing the other gifts that Sophie was regaled with.  However, always within the accepted norms of her environment.

It is hoped that in future Sphie would maximize on all her gifts, without exception.

Rodent, the Mouse..........(2)

RODENT thought deeply to duscover a way to entertain his closer friends but  as discreetly as possible. This was easier said than done. If and when the landlords, with whom he shared shelter, would discover his presence, that would be the end of his existence.


Watching the snorkel box from a good distance behind the sofa in front of the telly, he could follow an advert explaining how best to entertain one’s guests. The advert was, of course meant for human consumption, but as it involved Rodent’s favourite food item, of which he had never had enough, he stood motionless and as quiet as a mouse, listening.


Toppers was the latest of the delicacies in the finger-food genre that was becoming very popular with people who always preferred to have little solids to consume so that they could gulp as much of the alcohol available as possible. Toppers consisted of crumbled toasted bread covered in the most sophisticated brand of cheese, which cannot be mentioned due to advertising restrictions.


A handful  of invitation-cards was issued and distributed among his best friends and acquaintances, who were delighted to accept the invitation. It was ages since any of their peer group sent invitations for a warm get-together. On top of the list of guests were Grex, the orator, Sapiens, the wise and Saxo, the musician. There were some others, of course.
