On life and its vagaries

Lanes we run on

It’s only an elephant shrew

Big eyes (Frightened brown)


Tremulous snout…..

It  crosses a lane we  run.

A  bit of straw

Manifests  an eagle

A slip in path

Could be    fatal

It’s only an elephant shrew.

  3. elephants cant be airlifted through choppers.. the chopper wont leave the ground 🙂

  4. Well there are such helicopters dear Trisha, they are sometimes called sky cranes

    The most powerful of them in use now is the Mil Mi-26 (Russian) I think. It can lift a weight of 20 tons. It moves train engines from place to place and they are much heavier than elephants. The biggest elephant recorded in history weighs only 8 ¼ tons.

  6. You were pulling my legs ?

    Oh, my dear Trisha, you sadly forgot that I am the most serious of persons around now 🙂

    I love such nice sentiments in you. You are too beautiful a soul dear Trisha.

  8. Okay, you won’t be able to get much work done from then onwards, the moment you see that, you will be helpless with laughter 🙂

  10. I am declaring unilateral cease fire on this 🙂
    Anyway how is your new monitor, wide screen is it?


    October 14, 2009 at 2:54 pm

  11. dearest sam,

    its one of those flat monitors.. second hand of course. its working well till now..touch wood for that.. 🙂

    i have even a new plug point installed for it..

  12. I have always wondered how this expression “touch wood” came along. It seems to have some connection with Christ.

    “Knock on wood” also seems to be used in certain parts of the world.

    I am happy to learn that your new monitor is working well, can guess what happened with the old one, if it was CRT .

  13. i have not cremated the old one.. the service guy is still planning to come, he had some sad accident at his home… so we have left the thing entirely on him.

  14. Never even think of cremating anything with a CRT monitor. It might explode and take everything with it.


    October 18, 2009 at 1:04 pm

  15. oh no, i will bury it, its made in germany, that means its christian.


    October 19, 2009 at 2:39 pm
