You are right
This member's attention to detail and ability of recall is well-known. He can paint a vivid picture of events from long ago using not too many words. He will get quite specific -- if narrating from the pov of a thief who visited his home, he will tell you that the thief did the crime in the light of a CFL lamp, not any other lamp. : ) If a shawl got stolen, you will be able to feel the texture and visualize the color from the description.
But that is not what makes me read his posts when Latest Replies shows his name. The most charming aspect of his posts is the last line in them. That line always makes me smile and reminds me of many last lines from newspapers and magazines of my youth. Of a "Think it Over" daily quote that used to get printed next to the 'Letters to the Editor' in the Indian Express or The Hindu.
These last lines in posts are invocation to the almighty. Sometimes they introduce the almighty's reasoning to us and sometimes they are blasphemous enough to issue crisp directives to the almighty. : ) After all that ado, I present some of these 'last lines from posts':
God has destined that one’s loss is someone’s gain. Willinilly one has to accept this fact.
God decides the gestation upto the second.
God saves one by skin of his or her teeth?!?
God has given organs to exercise small hands to eat less and created night to sleep to ensure one produces optimal Serotinin & Melotinin.
God blesses the thief too.
God helps the snorer with C12H22-o11.
God is great in keeping things Hidden including sweets.
God listen - we humans are at closer proximity to your chamber - kingdom. Each planet exploration of us is a small step toward you but a giant.....
God provides peace in tavren in dusk.
God is giving final touches to His universe Which is felt as tsunami, earthquake, tremor, volcano eruption, deluge, blizzard, storm, hurricane, land mass disappear into sea, Northern Lights (Helsinki).
GOD LEND SUCCOUR TO ALL MY DISTRESSED SISTERS AS THEY ARE YOUR BELOVED CHILDREN.
God too practised pleasant lies to create harmony.
And my favorite so far:
God Bless all those who click LIKE & blesses more those who choose to comment or throw brickbats and or bouquets.
Thank you to this member for the many posts that bring so much life, variety and intriguing thought to IL. Your threads and posts deserve more response than they receive. I hope to fix my part in this omission and incur God's blessings.
The next member of our IL family that I'm presenting easy clues about is perhaps an area where I have an unfair advantage. : ) I can easily say the below and get away with it. : ) Deep is our bond and runs back years into the past. One of the best virtual friends IL caused to become part of my life. Makes me want to lower the bar for mixing virtual and real life. Maybe when we are looking for retirement homes, our paths will collide and recognition will dawn. : )
This member is well-known for warning us about trolls, and the danger of engaging trolls. In addition, she often reminds us of what follows (please excuse the hopeless paraphrasing attempt) --
Nobody on their deathbed has ever said "I wish I had spent more time in IL and online".
I just finishing reading all of your inputs. What a beautiful family is this which orchestrates its talents and expertise in all direction. Superb.
Is it archu, @Archanaanchan
1.This one is Encyclopedia Indusladica When he is around you forget all your grief!
2.She excels both in Facts and Fiction. She has been here for less than two years and look at her popularity!
3.Our Resident Philosopher. I always keep standing while reading his posts.
4. I understand her shooting the birds but she shoots even the flowers! She doesn't spare even the Sun.
5. I can understand people going gaga when a new flower sprouts in their garden. But this one will be at her rapturous best in describing it!
6. This Matriarch visits IL only after she attends to her terrace garden. Plants vie with each other to be part of her collection!
7. Write to her one line and she comes back with a hundred lines. Her versatility amazes me!
8. She reminds you of a piece of well-known chocolate. No subject is beyond her!
9.This little old lady is the darling of all!
