About Albert Camus (from the Guardian) ■ Born 7 November 1913 in Mondovi, Algeria, Camus grew up in poverty (his father was killed at the Battle of the Marne in 1914). His illiterate and partially deaf mother worked as a cleaner. ■ His intellectual promise was recognised by a teacher and he went on to study at the University of Algiers, where he played in goal for the university football team. ■ After working as a journalist and then joining the French Resistance during the war, he became a writer. His reputation is largely based on three novels, L'Etranger (The Stranger, or the Outsider, 1942), La Peste (The Plague, 1947) and La Chute (The Fall, 1956). ■ In 1934, he married the actress Simone Hié. They divorced in 1936. He married Francine Faure in 1940. She is the mother of Catherine and Jean Camus, who are twins. He was still married to Faure at the time of his death in 1960. ■ He was the second-youngest writer to receive the Nobel Prize for literature after Rudyard Kipling. ■ Camus once c ...

Comment: a poor benefitting from unsustainable economic growth is hurting its society. Response: They are not hurting their society - their society receives labor, consumption, babies to ready for war and all around economic strength when the poor do well. Why do you think America can bully the rest of the world, and India can't? Even little Norway has power far surpassing a tiny nation of 3 million from the prosperity they create, and prosperity more than anything else is effective, efficient and lucrative (including for the individual) work for the poor. "Survival of the fittest" indeed - the fittest nation - and what more just bullying could their be than nations that are abusive to their weakest members being put down, humiliated and used by nations that aren't? "For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack." (Rudyard Kipling). A stronger poor is a stronger working class is stronger, more efficient work is a stronger America. Even in the event of scarce resources, ...
Steeped in heritage surajit kumar das Great Eastern Hotel, renamed Lalit Great Eastern, reopened on 19th November. Now that a private hotelier has taken it over from the state government, I ~ as a retired government officer ~ cannot afford to hire its banquet-hall for the annaprasan ceremony of my grand-daughter. But when it was under state management in March 1977, my late father, a businessman, hosted my wedding reception in that elegant hotel when middle-class Bengalis deemed holding them in hotels unorthodox and too expensive. He dreaded depending on relatives to buy foodstuff from the market, get it cooked, and serve it to finicky guests that nitpicked at trifling things to embarrass the host. You just told the hotel manager how many guests you expect and the day and time of the reception: making guests happy was their USP — right from the entry notice-board announcing: “Mr. and Mrs. Das welcome you to their son’s wedding reception in the Banquet Hall” and ending with ice-cream but ~ disappo ...

That the female of the species is deadlier than the male ! - Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling Justice October, 1918 Across a world where all men grieve And grieving strive the more, The great days range like tides and leave Our dead on every shore. Heavy the load we undergo, And our own hands prepare, If we have parley with the foe, The load our sons must bear. Before we loose the word That bids new worlds to birth, Needs must we loosen first the sword Of Justice upon earth; Or else all else is vain Since life on earth began, And the spent world sinks back again Hopeless of God and Man. A People and their King Through ancient sin grown strong, Because they feared no reckoning Would set no bound to wrong; But now their hour is past, And we who bore it find Evil Incarnate *** at last To answer to mankind. For agony and spoil Of nations beat to dust, For poisoned air and tortured soil And cold, commanded lust, And every secret woe The shuddering waters saw -- Willed and fulfilled by high and low -- Let them relearn the Law: That when the dooms are read, Not high nor low shall say: -- ...
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much: If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! - Rudyard Kipling

"And the Stute Fish said, If you swim to latitude Fifty North, longitude Forty West, you will find, sitting on a raft, in the middle of the sea, with nothing on but a pair of blue canvas breeches, a pair of suspenders (you must particularly not forget the suspenders, Best Beloved), and a jack knife, one ship-wrecked mariner, who, it is only fair to tell you, is a man of infinite resource and sagacity" 'How The Whale Got His Throat' Rudyard Kipling
"In 1888 Rudyard Kipling published a story within the book “In Black and White” titled “On the City Wall.” The first line of the one of the chapters in this story about a prostitute reads: “Lalun is a member of the most ancient profession in the world.” That appears to be the first time the phrase appears in print and it seems everyone believed him and has kept the myth of the oldest profession, alive ever since. The Emmy winning actor and well known voiceover talent Ed Herrman at an award show In his acceptance remarks he challenged the Kipling myth and said that he believed the oldest profession is actually storytelling."

The Pench Tiger Reserve is named after the Pench river, which flows from north to south through the Reserve. The Reserve is located in the southern reaches of the Satpura hill ranges in the Seoni and Chhindwara districts in the Madhya Pradesh state of India. The terrain is undulating, with most of the area covered by small hill ranges, steeply sloping on the sides. The Reserve is situated in an area that holds a significant place in the natural history of Central India. The description of its natural beauty, richness in flora and fauna has appeared in numerous wildlife books dating back to 17th century. Books written in the 19th and early 20th century by famous naturalists like Captain J. Forsyth and Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book explicitly present the detailed panorama of nature's abundance in this tract. An extensive forest belt extends in three directions, north, east and south, covering forest tracts of Seoni, Balaghat and Nagpur districts. The contiguous forest on the southern side in the Maharashtra ...

FOCUS “I disapprove of what you say, But your right to say it, I will defend until my death”, said Voltaire, the French philosopher. In an India of over 1200 million people with myriad kinds of dogmas, practices and beliefs, what Voltaire said centuries ago, always stood its test of time. Tolerance of one’s speech, practices and beliefs has always been the corner stone of the ‘Idea of India’. The debate on ‘Idea of India’ has been going on at different points of time almost continuously. Only because, there is no country like India in the entire world. There have been rightly many thinkers, not just Indians, but from across the global spectrum, who wrote, at times with disdain and more often with pleasure, at the exasperating diversity called India. While quoting Rudyard Kipling may be out of place in the present context, there are others who have been more kindly-critical and some very approbative. Writing on India, John Keay writes “India challenges the visitor like no other country. Vas ...

I looked at the results of the Fulham game. I no longer am interested listening to the games while we have a dull tactictian in charge.

The birthday of Geoffrey Chaucer the first great English poet and author of The Canterbury Tales, is unknown, and so we instead remember him on the anniversary of his death, this day in the year 1400. He was buried in the south transept of Westminster Abbey in London, where he was a tenant and a member of the parish. Chaucer's fame increased after his death. He was called the "father of English poetry," and many other British poets began to be buried in the south transept of the abbey, which is now known as Poets' Corner. Lord Tennyson, Robert Browning, Charles Dickens, Samuel Johnson, and Rudyard Kipling are all buried here; and William Wordsworth, John Keats, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare all have memorials.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE (play /ˈwʊd.haʊs/; 15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) was an English humorist, whose body of work includes novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He enjoyed enormous popular success during a career that lasted more than seventy years and his many writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of a pre- and post-World War I English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by recent writers such as Stephen Fry,Christopher Hitchens, Douglas Adams, J. K. Rowling, and John Le Carré. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was als ...

Alice Munro Wins The 2013 Nobel Prize For Literature Canadian author Alice Munro has won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature. Making the announcement, Peter Englund, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, called her a "master of the contemporary short story". The 82-year-old, whose books include Dear Life and Dance of the Happy Shades, is only the 13th woman to win the prize since its inception in 1901. "I knew I was in the running, yes, but I never thought I would win," Munro told Canadian media. Presented by the Nobel Foundation, the award - which is presented to a living writer - is worth eight million kronor (£770,000). Munro said in an interview that Dear Life would "probably" be her last book Previous winners include literary giants such as Rudyard Kipling, Toni Morrison and Ernest Hemingway. Mr Englund told The Associated Press that he had not been able to contact Munro ahead of the announcement so left a message on her answering machine, informing her of her win. "She has taken an art form, ...
Caspian Sea, central Asia; the new Great game with China as major energy player reports Al Jazeera China plays for energy in new Great Game Stalled decade-long negotiations with Russia have led China to go energy shopping around the Caspian Sea. Shanghai, China - Near the right bank of the Amu Darya River in Turkmenistan lies a sprawling complex that is the fruit of China's decade-long charm offensive in the hermetic state. Derricks erected in the bleak, forbidding desert extract natural gas from huge reservoirs underground. Pipes carry the gas to a plant, the largest and most advanced in Central Asia, where it is processed before being pumped more than 1,800 km east to China. The Amu Darya gas project, as it is known, is a testament to China's courtship of Central Asia - a region of increasing strategic and economic importance to Beijing. China is now a player in the latest round of the "Great Game" - a tag coined by Rudyard Kipling to describe the 19th-century rivalry between imperial Britain and Russia ...
I love Read-In Week - quite possibly my favourite week of the year. I visited three very different schools today: in total, I read to one grade 7 class, one grade 8 class, three grade 3 classes, two grade 4 classes, and one 5/6 split. On today's menu? The Cremation of Sam McGee, by Robert W. Service, The Lady or the Tiger, by Frank R. Stockton, The Elephant's Child, by Rudyard Kipling, Dirty Beasts, by Roald Dahl, and The Pumpkin Giant, by Mary Wilkins. By the end of it all, I was happy but hoarse, with a tremendous respect for Edmonton's teachers. I'll visit two more schools this week - but not till Thursday! At least I now get a day to rest up. My thanks to the wonderful students and staff at St. Edmund, Parkview and Laurier Heights - you were wonderful hosts and wonderful audiences.
Christabel Mary Melville Macnaghten (Fig. 1) was born on 12 December 1890. In 1899, when she was 9, she was best friends with Josephine, daughter of Rudyard Kipling, and Kipling wrote a poem “The Way Through the Woods” after talking with the young Christabel about the New Forest . At age 19, Christabel married Henry Duncan “Harry” McLaren (1879-1953), son of Charles McLaren (1850-1934), a Scottish Liberal politician and jurist. In 1880, Charles was elected to the British House of Commons. In 1877 he married Laura Pochin who in 1895 inherited the Bodnant Estate on the River Conwy in Wales, twelve miles northeast of Bangor. In 1902 Charles became Sir Charles McLaren, Baronet of Bodnant. In 1911 he was created Baron Aberconway by Lloyd George for political services. He chose “Aberconway” because it is Welsh for “at the mouth of the Conwy.” Harry became a successful industrialist and between 1920 and 1922, had constructed at 38 South Street in Mayfair, London, a neo-Georgian mansion of 22,7 ...
OK, so Orson Scott Card was never Rudyard Kipling in terms of his writing, but I loved his imagination 20 years ago; I have most of his books. So it's sad to see him go off the rails into right-wing paranoid fantasies. To me he's another Kipling: brilliant, but his earlier, truly powerful work being overwhelmed by the crap he's spilling out later in life via his non-fiction outlets (his fiction's been getting kinda weird lately too, honestly, and not in a good way). Then again, I also have plenty of friends who have left-wing paranoid fantasies, so there's that. Still... sad.

I have been very critical on here of Ed Millibean. Now, however, I have to say he has gone up in my estimation. The Daily Mail needs to be out in its place. We are rather reminded of the Mail's campaign to oust Stanley Baldwin as leader of the Tory party in 1931, following his unexpected defeat in the 1929 election. The paper put up a candidate against the Tory candidate, Duff Cooper, in the Westminster St. George by-election of March 1931. At a public meeting in Queen's Hall, Baldwin took on the press, as no leading politician since has done, with words probably written by his cousin Rudyard Kipling. " What the press were "aiming at (was) power, and power without responsibility--the prerogative of the harlot through the ages." As an aged Prebendary student of mine once said to me, "Baldwin was a man of principle." Indeed. And so is Mr. Milliband, apparently, following a quite inappropriate attack on his father, a rather tossery Marxist scholar who famously argued that the Labour party could have done mor ...
STOCKHOLM, Oct 04 (BSS/AFP) - Who is the oldest Nobel laureate, and who is the youngest? How many women have won a Nobel? How many married couples? Here are some of the answers, based on the Nobel Foundation's figures. - The oldest laureate to win a Nobel was Russian-born American Leonid Hurwicz, who was 90 years of age when he won the economics prize in 2007. He lived only a few months longer, passing away in June 2008. - In 2007 British author Doris Lessing became the oldest winner of the literature prize, aged 87 when her name was announced. Lessing later described winning the award as a "catastrophe" because it left her no time to write. - British laureate Lawrence Bragg, who won the physics prize in 1915, was 25 years old when he won and remains the youngest laureate in the history of the prizes. Germany's Werner Karl Heisenberg, the 1932 physics laureate, was 31 when he won, while British author Rudyard Kipling remains the youngest Nobel literature laureate ever honoured, aged 42 when he took home t ...

Robert Frost's snowy walk tops Radio 4 count of nation's favourite poems Polls to discover the nation's favourite poem have traditionally crowned Rudyard Kipling's If as No 1, while TS Eliot has been hailed as the greatest poet, but now an audit of the poems most-requested on BBC Radio 4's Poetry Please has found that US poet Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is the piece that listeners most want to hear. Programme producer Tim Dee has totted up every poem featured on the programme since it began in 1979, to produce a list of the most popular. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening has been read out 17 times in the show's 35 years on air.

It's humanly thwarted, not getting to where it wants to get to, and there's that wonderful opening out at the end, like a prayer or a meditation; it speaks of human vulnerability.

Unit 1 Print Media Print Media is the term used to define the collection and periodic publication of news through medium such as newspapers, or magazines. Print media is a rather commonly used term referring to the medium that disseminates printed matter. It’s an intermediate communicative channel aiming at reaching a large number of people. Until radio and TV became popular in the 20th century, print media had a monopoly on news, but by the time the century closed, a new medium--the Internet--loomed as a new threat. In everyday life print media is referred to as the industry associated with the printing and mostly with the distribution of news through a network of media, such as newspapers and journals. Print media is popularly referred to simply as "Press". Types of Print Media. 1) Newspapers: A newspaper is a scheduled publication containing news of current events, informative articles, diverse features, editorials, and advertising. 2) Magazines: Magazines are publications that are printed with ink o ...
If You Were Born Today, December 30: You are a passionate and enthusiastic person who is exceptionally goal-oriented. Without clearly defined goals to work towards, you feel utterly lost! You are ambitious for the most part. Although you tend to over-think and can become quite nervous when you do, for the most part you go after what you want in life. At times indulgent, you are also responsible and sensible. You work hard and play hard, but for many of you, work does come first. You have a strong artistic side to you. Famous people born today: Rudyard Kipling, Tiger Woods, Bo Diddley, Patti Smith, Tracey Ullman, Eliza Dushku, Kristin Kreuk. Huh lol I didn't know I shared a birthday with Tiger Woods.
Rudyard Kipling once painted his golf balls red so he could play in the snow!
More of the Just-So story (Rudyard Kipling) about how the Elephant got its Trunk. Conrad Taylor might enjoy. That very next morning, when there was nothing left of the Equinoxes, because the Precession had preceded according to precedent, this 'satiable Elephant's Child took a hundred pounds of bananas (the little short red kind), and a hundred pounds of sugar-cane (the long purple kind), and seventeen melons (the greeny-crackly kind), and said to all his dear families, 'Goodbye. I am going to the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River, all set about with fever-trees, to find out what the Crocodile has for dinner.' And they all spanked him once more for luck, though he asked them most politely to stop.
I have been writing since I was a child, got heavily involved in it as a teenager and then took a break for much of my adulthood. Over the last few years I have gotten back into writing, exploring poetry and other types. I am a dark poetess, who writes a variety of things from twisted takes on fairy tales to simple poems of sadness and loss. I am into hardcore music, classic rock, heavy metal...music and writing are my sanity, they have been my life source for many years. Edgar Allan Poe is a constant inspiration and my favorite poet, followed by Jim Morrison. I also draw from the works of Rudyard Kipling, Longfellow, Stephen King and many other authors.
MapleLeaks.com Archived MP of the Month = Wai Young May 2011This month's MP of the Month is Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP, Wai Young. Young was chosen on the basis of how she conducted her campaign in the 2011 Canadian Federal General Election. Accusations include her endorsement by a man (Ripudaman Singh Malik) who stood trial in the Air India terror bombings, and violating the Elections Act. You can read more here regarding this story that was carried by all the national and local media outlets.Young claims ignorance about Mr. Ripudaman Singh Malik, stating that she was unaware of his history. Unaware of the history of the most infamous man in Canadian and British Columbian history? Really? Has Young been in a coma for the past 25 years? Or, is she just not credible as she brushes off any associations with this man who has admitted links to the Air India bombers? It is one or the other, unless she is just that plain ignorant of Canadian current events and history. Either way, are these the quali ...

HISTORY LESSON: You're a Patriot? Listen up, please, Tommy Robinson and English Defence League! Listen up, please Nick Griffin, Sir, of British National Party--do you Know what Culture you're defending? More than flag-waving, queuing, Pounds, Shillings and Pence, and tea-drinking. Remember The British Empire? Our Regal Imperialist past, when we ruled India, Pakistan, Australia, and The New World-under the Reign of Queen Victoria? Remember Rudyard Kipling? What happened to that Empire? Why did we lose it? Turned OUR BACKS ON GOD! When it was no longer cool to love The Lord Jesus Christ, that's when Patriotism became 'The Last Refuge of The Scoundrel'! Plus the terrible trauma and devastation of The Great War, meant that the common man--and woman--lost Faith. I mention it because a Strong Faith--in God, as well as King/Queen and Country --was all part and parcel of British Culture, of Great Britain. Marxists cannot be believers, because they are 'dialectical materialists'--and Marxism proudly boasts that .. ...
Aah...good ol' Rudyard Kipling...one of my favorites too...of course I haven't read many poems in the first place :)Arnav
Some die saintly in faith and hope-- One died thus in a prison-yard-- Some die broken by rape or the rope; Some die easily. This dies hard. Some die quietly. Some abound In loud self-pity. Others spread Bad morale through the cots around . This is a type that is better dead. - Rudyard Kipling

“If a person’s scale of values is based primarily on material wealth, that person will be in difficulty all of his or her life. Do not pay much attention to fame, power and money. Some day you will meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you will know how poor you are.” --Rudyard Kipling addressing the graduates of McGill University in Montreal

“A black shadow dropped down into the circle. It was Bagheera the Black Panther, inky black all over, but with the panther markings showing up in certain lights like the pattern of watered silk. Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody cared to cross his path, for he was as cunning as Tabaqui, as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant. But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than down.” — Rudyard Kipling - The Jungle Book
Novelist William Faulkner and philosopher Bertrand Russell both received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1950, but they did not share the prize, because they won for different years. The 1949 Nobel Committee for Literature had felt that none of the nominees that year (which did not include Faulkner) met the criteria for the prize, as specified in Alfred Nobel’s will. The Nobel Foundation therefore reserved the 1949 prize for the next year, when it was awarded to Faulkner, along with the 1950 prize to Russell(the first year either one had been nominated). Faulkner was the fourth American to win the prize, after Sinclair Lewis (1930), Eugene O’Neill (1936),and Pearl S. Buck (1938). Russell was the fifth British winner, after Rudyard Kipling (1907), George Bernard Shaw (1925), John Galsworthy (1932), and T. S.Eliot (1948), but could be considered the sixth winner, if Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1923) were included (see Note 1). Faulkner delivered the banquet speech and Russell a lecture at the Nobe ...
The ghosts of shimla "Nearly every other station (in India) owns a ghost. There are said to be two at Shimla.", Rudyard Kipling wrote in My Own True Ghost Story. But going by the legends, lore and rumours of Shimla, Kipling probably underestimated the ghosts of the city. The Himachal government now feels that it can swing this supernatural advantage into significant tourism dividends. Among the string of new initiatives announced on World Tourism Day last month, is a compilation of spooky tales, based on the experiences of the locals. In a way, the BJP government is taking off from the previous Congress government's initiatives, where local cemeteries and haunted houses were sold off as major tourist attractions. G.S. Bali, tourism minister in the previous Congress government, says, "An interesting aspect is that most of these tales pertain to spectres of the British. It is indicative of the city's history. When I was tourism minister, we found that Shimla had more visitors from the UK than from any other ...
Tuesday Trivia! Q. What affliction did Winston Churchill, Charles Dickens and Rudyard Kipling have in common?
Get the *** Out of Afghanistan By Richard Reeves If you Google "Afghanistan," you get your choice of occupiers. There’s "Occupation of Afghanistan by British," "Occupation of Afghanistan by Russians" and "Occupation of Afghanistan by United States." The British occupation began in arrogance in 1878 and ended in 1880 in massacre. The occupation by the Soviet Union ended in defeat and humiliation. The American occupation, officially an operation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, goes on and on toward another bad ending. You’d think we would have Google the place before we invaded after the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 11, 2001. We did not use the word "invasion" then, of course. We said it was a "mission" to find and punish al-Qaida and its leader, Osama bin Laden, and the brutal Taliban, which had given him refuge in the hard mountain territory of western Afghanistan. Or perhaps we should have read Rudyard Kipling, the poet of the British Empire, who lived in tha ...
I've always found it interesting when I hear someone has refused an honour. Following the elevation to Knighthood of actor and Labour party activist Tony (Baldrick) Robinson I decided to delv a little deeper into this. Knighthood refusals include: Alan Bennett, David Bowie, Danny Boyle, Albert Finney, Graham Greene, Stephen Hawking, David Hockney, Trevor Howard, Rudyard Kipling, Humphey Littleton, Robert Morely, Paul Schofield, Alistair Sim and H G Wells. Artist L S Lowrey (he of the matchstick cats and dogs and industrial landscapes etc fame) holds the record for the most honour refusals including KBE, CBE, MBE, and Life Peerage. I have to say I have more respect for those who refuse honours than for those who accept them.
Here's a ponderable for the weekend for those of us who love our stogies. Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936). Verse: 1885–1918. 1922. The Betrothed “You must choose between me and your cigar.” Breach of Promise Case, circa, 1885 OPEN the old cigar-box, get me a Cuba stout, For things are running crossways, and Maggie and I are out. We quarrelled about Havanas—we fought o’er a good cheroot, And I know she is exacting, and she says I am a brute. Open the old cigar-box—let me consider a space; 5 In the soft blue veil of the vapour musing on Maggie’s face. Maggie is pretty to look at—Maggie’s a loving lass, But the prettiest cheeks must wrinkle, the truest of loves must pass. There’s peace in a Laranaga, there’s calm in a Henry Clay; But the best cigar in an hour is finished and thrown away— 10 Thrown away for another as perfect and ripe and brown— But I could not throw away Maggie for fear o’ the talk o’ the town! Maggie, my wife at fifty—grey and dour and old— With never anot .. ...

read: Kipling, Rudyard. Plain Tales from the Hills. He was born in India, sent back at age 6 for education, endured a terrible experience with foster parents, returned to India at age 17 as a journalist, wrote short stories for colonial publications, and in his early twenties had already published some of them into this collection. When he returned to Britain, he immediately became the most famous writer since Charles Dickens. People familiar with the KJV will recognize quotes and illusions: 'rise up and call her not blessed' (p10), 'living unspotted from the world' (p15), 'passed by on the other side' (p23), as Jacob served Rachel (p26), purple and linen (p27), Day of Judgment (p41, 125), 'decently and in order' (p44, 117), Reuben (p51), 'vessel of wrath' (p70-71), Revelation (p71), Proverbs (p72), 'devise means' (p72), original sin (p72), seven devils (p81), serpent wisdom (p107), Cain (p123), 'turned his face to the wall' (p150).

Just a plug for one of my favorite poets. If you only think of Rudyard Kipling as a writer of books and short stories, you are missing some excellent poetry.very earthy and honest like Robert Service but dealing with the English Raj period while he was a soldier in India. Try 'Danny Deever' for a taste of his early poetry.

A Dog for Jesus (Where dogs go when they die) I wish someone had given Jesus a dog. As loyal and loving as mine. To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes And adore Him for being divine. As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog, Would have followed Him all through the day. While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well And knelt in the garden to pray. It is sad to remember that Christ went away. To face death alone and apart. With no tender dog following close behind, To comfort its Master’s Heart. And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn, How happy He would have been, As His dog kissed His hand and barked it’s delight, For The One who died for all men. Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine, The old pal so dear to me. And I smile through my tears on this first day alone, Knowing they’re in eternity. Day after day, the whole day through, Wherever my road inclined, Four feet said, “Wait, I’m coming with you!” And trotted along behind. by: Rudyard Kipling

Holding your Bachelors degree in Psychology from a liberal arts college in the-middle-of-nowhere in a Western country, go to that interview your chest puffed out, head held higher above the rest: you will certainly get that engineering job because when you were busy pulling all-nighters, your competitors, holders of Masters degrees in engineering from local universities, were busy striking over trite things like freedom of press. In any case, they didn’t have to go through tough challenges like being the only black (and African) kids in the classroom and thus having the rest of the students stare at them during an entire lecture on malaria; one would think malaria was an incurable disease, that all Africans suffered from all the time, which the staring students feared you would surely infect them−and gazing at you would immunize them.

Happy Fathers Day from Easy96.com Here's An Interesting Read...(Please share with Dad) How is it to be on the longest train journey in India? On A hot summer afternoon in 1853, as the first steam locomotive pulled out of Bombay, India entered the rail era. Today, 160 years later, even at a time when the Railways are making headlines for the wrong reasons, a ride aboard the Vivek Express is the opportunity of a lifetime. It’s India’s longest train ride, starting from Dibrugarh in Assam and sweeping down the eastern coast to culminate at Kanyakumari. It covers a staggering 4,300 km (more than 1/10th the earth’s circumference), in an unforgettable four-night-three-day grind. Having grown up reading the works of adventurers such as Jules Verne and Rudyard Kipling, I wasn’t short of inspiration. Boning up on railway fiction might help you prepare for 82 hours on the tracks, but as India flashes by the window, nothing prepares you for what lies inside: a journey that opens your eyes to ways of travellin ...

SOMETIMES A CIGAR IS JUST A CIGAR ... And sometimes it is "an accurate barometer of the national mood," according to The Economist. The paper has plotted out an intriguing history of America in cigar consumption ("Puffing on a stogie went into sharp decline after the Wall Street crash. President Kennedy signed the Cuban trade embargo in 1962 but not before sending a lackey to purchase 1,200 fine Cuban cigars on his behalf.")

Movie Matchup, Day 11. John Huston edition Carrie nominates "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948), in which a trio of Americans down on their luck in Mexico strike it rich -- and get stricken by gold fever.

I was reminiscing about some of the wonderful teachers I've had over the years and when I go there, invariable Mrs. H, my 8th grade English teacher comes to mind. Truly, she was a wonderful teacher. I can still recall some of the mnemonics she taught to help us remember spelling words. For example, when trying to remember principle and principal, she would remind us all that the priciPAL is our pal (I'm not sure who she was referring to because I was not really on a first names chum list with our principal.) She also pointed out that there is "a rat" in separate. Man, that stuck! I suggested back to her that there is supper in supperate, too, but that didn't really take. There's always one kid in the class who doesn't know when to shut off what passes for a brain and ferme la bouche. That day was my turn to open mouth, insert foot--I wore a size 12!

Today I learned it's okay to not feel your best and be misunderstood by others. If you can accept yourself when you are at your worst with compassion, you allow yourself the opportunity let it go and grow from it. What you resist persists, what you resolve dissolves. If you can feel fully into discomfort, and be totally accepting of it, you can overcome any challenge life presents to you. Just do your best. That's it.

I am really enjoying Rudyard Kipling's "Kim". (There is a little racism, but I'm finding it far less distasteful than the misogyny in "Catch 22".) It's absolutely fab, a blend of espionage and religion that I don't think I've had from any other book.

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" At the hole where he went in Red-Eye called to Wrinkle-Skin. Hear what little Red-Eye saith: "Nag, come up and dance with death!" Eye to eye and head to head, (Keep the measure, Nag.) This shall end when one is dead; (At thy pleasure, Nag.) Turn for turn and twist for twist-- (Run and hide thee, Nag.) Hah! The hooded Death has missed! (Woe betide thee, Nag!) This is the story of the great war that Rikki-tikki-tavi fought single-handed, through the bath-rooms of the big bungalow in Segowlee cantonment. Darzee, the Tailorbird, helped him, and Chuchundra, the musk-rat, who never comes out into the middle of the floor, but always creeps round by the wall, gave him advice, but Rikki-tikki did the real fighting. He was a mongoose, rather like a little cat in his fur and his tail, but quite like a weasel in his head and his habits. His eyes and the end of his restless nose were pink. He could scratch himself anywhere he pleased with any leg, fron ...

When Earth's last picture is painted and the tubes are twisted and dried, When the oldest colours have faded, and the youngest critic has died, We shall rest, and faith, we shall need it - lie down for an aeon or two, Till the Master of All Good Workmen Shall put us to work anew. And those that were good shall be happy: they shall sit in a golden chair; They shall splash at a ten-league canvas with brushes of comet's hair. They shall find real saints to draw from - Magdalene, Peter, and Paul; They shall work for an age at a sitting and never be tired at all! And only the Master shall praise us, and only the Master shall blame; And no one will work for the money, and no one will work for the fame, But each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star, Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for the God of Things as They are!
Rudyard Kipling puts it very well! "Gardens are not made by sitting in the shade."

"The responsibility for governing India has been placed by the inscrutable design of providence upon the shoulders of the British race." Rudyard Kipling.
Our hearts where they rocked our cradle, Our love where we spent our toil, And our faith, and our hope, and our honor, We pledge to our native soil. God gave all men all earth to love, But since our hearts are small, Ordained for each one spot should prove Beloved over all. ~Rudyard Kipling
I have officially decided that Asian languages with character-based writing systems are stupid.
"No printed word, nor spoken plea can teach young minds what they should be. Not all the books on the shelf- but what the teachers are themselves". - Rudyard Kipling

I was looking for the best section from this wonderful book. it was George H. W. Bush's favorite book. The saying "The Great Game" of countries intriguing with each other for natural resources came from this book. At this time it was the British Empire vying with the Russians. Kim by Rudyard Kipling, first published in 1900. Chapter 10 Gow's Watch Lurgan Sahib did not use as direct speech, but his advice tallied with Mahbub's; and the upshot was good for Kim. He knew better now than to leave Lucknow city in native garb, and if Mahbub were anywhere within reach of a letter, it was to Mahbub's camp he headed, and made his change under the Pathan's wary eye. Could the little Survey paint-box that he used for map-tinting in term-time have found a tongue to tell of holiday doings, he might have been expelled. Once Mahbub and he went together as far as the beautiful city of Bombay, with three truckloads of tram-horses, and Mahbub nearly melted when Kim proposed a sail in a dhow across the Indian Ocean to buy Gu ...

Soon it was time to leave and we photographed the winding by-lanes of Shimla and walked through the old carriage track that went through woods past the Vice-Regal Lodge of Annadale. On reaching the Mall we were shown some remarkable structures like Dalziel House, Chelmsford Club and one building which Dominic claimed was the home of Rudyard Kipling. Another arresting feature of Shimla were of course the monkeys who were totally in charge of the place and hung around menacingly in little groups and would *** food stuffs when desperate as per Dominic. Driving out of Shimla towards Kufri was encountering rutted and duty roads which showed how heavy commercial vehicles had torn the macadam to ribbons and we came across some lovely scenery and then soon we were in Kufri thirteen kms away from Shimla where my friend's government run catering institute was placed bang opposite a very well known landmark hotel The Oberoi Wildflower Hall which looked like a white Gothic structure. The Wildflower hall was once h .. ...
Zamzama Gun opposite Lahore Museum (Photo by Gertrude Bell c.1903) "He who holds Zamzama...holds the Punjab" - Kim IN front of the Lahore Museum, on a platform in the midst of The Mall or Shahrah-e-Quaid-e-Azam, stands a beautiful old gun whose nine-and-a-half-inch muzzle rained fire in battlefields for about one century. The great English novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling had immortalised it as Kim’s Gun. The gun bears two inscriptions, one on its muzzle and the other on its back. According to the former inscription, it was cast by Shah Nazir under the orders of Shah Wali Khan, the chief minister of Ahmad Shah Abdali. The last line of the second inscription forms a chronogram — a phrase whose each letter has a numerical value which when added gives a specific date. The date given by the chronogram on the gun is 1169 Hijri (1755-56 AD). At that time not one but two guns were cast. The brass required for these 14 feet and 4.5 inch long guns is said to have been collected by jazia, capitation tax levied ...
