firstborn and his class were talking about how the days of a year are divided into a calender — quotidien, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly etc
the teacher explained —
daily is for newspapers
monthly is payday
weekly is time for a new issue of a magazines
and it was firstborn’s turn to give his teacher an answer…
”what are the things that happen in a fortnight,” his teacher asked.
”ekadasi,” he said. ”my mum fasts once in every 15 days.”
[sigh. i once thought i’d have a private blog to silently chronicle my fasting … ]
did you see this. number 3 is my favourite.
last week the mighty mlv was singing on the all india radio. i havent heard any morning concert after that. everyone else seems to be floaty pretender in comparison…
