    My Dearest Sweetest Darlingest Viji, how could I forget to reply to a nomination of your post!!! Doing a few replies at a time. We are lucky to have so many nominations this month. April showers did bring May flowers.
    Snippet by none other than @iyerviji - My Mother
    I fully agree with @Thoughtful's description - lessons from elders shared without sounding preachy or like advice.

    Whenever I read @iyerviji's snippets, one word comes to mind - सरलता (saralatā) -- the quality of being simple, straightforward, and uncomplicated.

    Viji's narrations, including this one, illustrate how skillfully and gracefully life's challenges were navigated and significant achievements were attained—accomplishments that remain aspirational for many women even today. These feats were accomplished with a dignified and understated modernity, without unnecessary drama or excessive struggle.

    Response by @Viswamitra - Random Musings On A Friday Evening..

    Oh I just realized this response by @Viswamitra is also nominated. I already talked about this one in a post above. I am happy to see it nominated. Missed seeing the nomination as there are just too many ads popping up when I browse IL now-a-days.

    Anika's post was a lovely to read compilation, and Viswa's point by point response simply elevates the thread.

    Snippet by @HariLakhera - Good Is There Because There Is Evil.
    How good and bad are connected, what karma decides about our birth, and how do mistakes get fixed? How do different religions explain this. Hari ji's snippet neatly examines these questions and gives us food for thought.
    Snippet by @Viswamitra - Information Diet
    An important reminder and caution for us in Viswa's snippet. We are so careful with how we wash fruits, vegetables, read nutrition labels and consume food carefully, yet, we do not apply even half of that care to the information we consume. Properly managing the information we are fed is an art, science, and skill in itself.

    So said the guy with the signature hair-flip:
    "When I grew up in India, telephones were a rarity. In fact, they were so rare that elected members of Parliament had the right to allocate 15 telephone lines as a favor to those they deemed worthy. If you were lucky enough to be a wealthy businessman or an influential journalist, or a doctor or something, you might have a telephone."

    Yes, that quote is from Shashi Tharoor.

    Snippets from Satchi @satchitananda are about as rare. Here's one:
    These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

    So, when we see one, we welcome it like the parched earth embraces rain. Satchi's writing beautifully captures the simple yet profound moments of connection with nature amidst the challenges of daily life. Be it the vibrant hibiscus or the unexpected tailor bird's egg that is blue but golden : ) we get to behold the sights thanks to the pictures. I did have to adjust my glasses and lean closer to the monitor to see the egg, and I am sure, the "oh my " that escaped my lips would echo what anyone will feel to see this magic, design and will of nature. If I am seeing it correctly, it is delicately nestled between two guava leaves!

    Thank you Satchi.

    A response by me got nominated! : )
    I Discovered A Lot Of Joy In My Public Library

    Thank you for the nomination, @Thoughtful. Thank you so much. It means a lot to me. It was such a pleasant surprise to see it when I came to the thread from Latest Replies. Of late, I have started to second-guess myself a lot when it comes to posting. That's one reason for fewer posts. This one also I thought was giving unsolicited advice etc. But I let it be there as I felt strongly about what I typed.

    Ok I am rambling... Thanks again.

    I am grateful for the valuable endorsement. :blush:

    Taking a Chota sa break from reading nominated posts, so a joke:

    Why did the owl refuse to dance?
    Because it said it would just be a "hoot" and "hoo" needs all that commotion?

    :grinning::grinning:
