The Quilt Story

Posted on

Dear Friends, this is my son’s new venture. Please like, share, and subscribe to the video on you, when you have time. Thanks.

The Quilt Story

A tradition kept alive by Women deep In the heart of Rural India, lies the Origin of ‘The Quilt Story’! Each quilt is the Result of Patience, Dedication, and sheer ambition of skilled women. Each knot and each stitch tells the story of the creator’s imagination, creativity, and perseverance. ‘The Quilt Story’ is an effort to empower these women who hail from a village in Himachal and to take the story of their creation to the world. The quilts come in covers of cotton, satin, and silk and in sizes that meet all requirements. Authentically hand-stitched, these are not metered quilts but a work of art!.

The Daily Post- A Bird, a plane, you

A Bird, a Plane, You!

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other

I will definitely choose the superpower to speak and understand any language because I’m not interested to travel through time, backward or forward. The past is past and the future is unknown and it’s better this way. Let the future reveal itself at its own pace. Let there be some surprises.

What will I do with the ability to make any two people agree with each other if it’s not for making the whole world understand and agree with each other?

The ability to speak and understand any language seems to be very admirable and useful. I live in India where

(India has 22 official languages. According to the Census of India, the total number of mother tongues spoken in India is 1652. However, only around 150 languages have a sizable speaking population. The Indian census of 1961 recognized 1,652 different languages in India (including languages not native to the subcontinent) many languages are spoken.

In my city, Visakhapatnam Telugu is spoken and what a shame, I’m not able to speak and understand it. I love to read literature in their original language but have to be satisfied with translations only. Imagine what a great power I will get when speak and understand any language. I will speak to local people and my friends in their mother tongue.

Not only in India, but I have many friends in other countries also. Though probably most people understand English, speaking to them in their own language and reading books will be great fun.

The first language I will try to master is English, of course. Then I can write my posts like a pro.

Please, please, give me this superpower, please.

Happy 69th Independence Day

Reblogging Shivangi’s post –Saluting India, My Motherland!.

best 15 aug indian independence day 2015 quotes and sayings

I see freedom as a treasure. It is a gem so rare and precious the fiercest battles rage over it. The blood of thousands is spilled for it—past, present, and future. Where true and unblemished freedom exists, it shines with perfect clarity, drawing the greedy masses, both those who desire a portion of the spoils and those who would rob the possessor of the treasure, hoping to bury it away.
Without freedom I am a slave in shackles on a ship lost at sea.
With freedom I am a captain; I am a pirate; I am an admiral; I am a scout; I am the eagle souring overhead; I am the north star guiding a crew; I am the ship itself; I am whatever I choose to be.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
