    Come September!
    A jolly good movie of 1961 starring Rock Hudson and Gina Lollobrigida that was an instant hit in India. Desi versions of this movie were also Box office hits. The handsome hero Rock Hutson died of AIDS at the age of 59. The heroine of the movie, Gina, continues to be fit as a fiddle at 92! The title song of the movie is an evergreen hit. This movie took several Indian Avatar and in Tamil it came as Anbe Vaa starring an aging MGR (He was 50 then!) and Saroja Devi.

    Goodness! I am getting lost in nostalgia! What I came to inform you was that a new month has started and it was time to start nominating new threads. This is the trouble with old guys. Their Time Machine always travels back in Time! See how I took you back by about 58 years!

    The nominations for September are welcome now. Scout around for worthy threads and flood us with your nominations!

    :hello:Keeping in view the hullabaloos of wedlock and longing for progeny and its aftermath discussed at infinitum in this forum over the decades, I have no hesitation in seconding thewell thought out nomination by my elder sister @iyerviji of the thought provoking essay by another fellow writer viz. “experiences of life “.

    Thanks and Regards.
    God You do not love chaos and confusion in wedlocks.?

    @iyerviji @Thyagarajan
    My dear viji
    Yet again, the first nomination! You are amazing indeed!
    Thank you for your nomination of @messedup 's Experiences Of Life..
    And my dear Thyagu
    You are amazing too. Your vocabulary must be at least twice the size of the normal English-speaking humans. I say 'humans' because I have seen some animals talking in chaste English like the talking cat Tobermory of Saki (H.H. Munro) and the talking dog in James Hadley Chase's Miss Shumway Waves a Wand!
    @messedup starts with saying
    and comes out with a delightful and honest post. Her ten recommendations are like the Ten Commandments that will help us to live a peaceful life. A great post messedup! Loved it.

    :hello: I too love it Sir.
    2. Psychologists & anthropologists consider man is a rational ANIMAL - of course all may not speak in same language. Some use only body. Some only gestures. Even Some from distance - sign only! Thanks for information about “cat and dog” about which you rained sometime ago.
    Thanks and Regards.

    @Afresh
    My dear Afresh
    Thanks a lot for your nomination of @Balajee's Here A Quack, There A Quack, Everywhere A Quack Quack
    And that
    was indeed gratifying.
    I have great admiration for the thought process of Balajee. I consider him as the IL's Arthur Buchwald. Or our own Rustom Khurshedji Karanjia. Bala is ruthless her as usual. Who can contest his statement ' That means if you can afford the fees you can join a medical college whether you have the qualifications for it or not.'?
    Whenever I read Balajee, I tell myself 'God save us all'!
