    @Rihana

    I am here for one more nomination for the month. It is Smt. Jayasala's Make Hay While The Sun Shines. What a great concept that is. I wish it is implemented in other countries as well through a formal process.

    Thank you Viswa for nominating this unique analysis of time's passage by @HariLakhera:
    The Best Prophet Of The Future Is The Past.

    Hari ji does facilitate us to think deeper. He has given a starter on past, present and future that we can build upon. It's fascinating to think about related concepts such as spending time or wasting time. And time's sister concern: patience. I was reminded of the famous line: "The two most powerful warriors are patience and time."

    Viswa, I agree with your observation. The way the question is phrased in the opening post sets the tone for the thread and makes people respond or skip replying. @Needtobestrong has neatly phrased a potentially tricky question in Are Beautiful Ladies More Successful?. Each response was thought-provoking.

    But you didn't really understand the language! So, your attention was not distracted by the words in the movie dialog. You still needed so many viewings to prepare for future letter writing? I think you should continue to reflect on this part of the past for better understanding. : ) : ) : )

    You are on a roll with nominations, Viswa! Thank you for bringing a response by @Mehana from the "People Who Impressed You" thread to FP: People Who Impressed You

    What a lovely narration by Mehana. The neighbor mom's qualities, Mehana's own misgivings and the simple yet powerful life lessons one taught to the other are beautifully presented in a short write-up.

    Looks like we have a lot of nominations around the concept of "time" this month. An apt coincidence as we inch towards the end of another calendar year.

    Thank you for nominating the post, Viswa. The foreign student's narration about the Swiss "time bank" model is interesting to read.

    I tried to get off the hook and apparently that was not going to happen in the near future! I placed an argument that I was a teenager and didn't have any spiritual development at that time but it didn't work. Now, the argument that I was trying to find how short my letters should be by viewing Dimple Kapadia's dress is also shot down because I am Hindi challenged?

    Note: I guess I need to come back one more life and write many more spiritual threads to erase that sin. :(

    Rihana,
    Happy Belated Thanksgiving! It’s the time of the year when we reminisce about all the beautiful memories we are thankful and grateful for. @Kohvachn has described a beautiful memory with Paati.

    When we are first generation in a brand new country, we have the opportunity to make our own special traditions, add to it over the years and enjoy the additional festivities to our repertoire of celebrations. I have never thought about the future generations and how what we do now will be enhanced and enjoyed for generations to come.
    Kohvachn has aptly put it. Traditions do get richer over time!

    I would like to nominate this write up of kohvachn Gabfest: And Thereby Hangs A Tail for finest post.

    Thank you Laks for nominating this heart-warming post by @Kohvachn.
    Gabfest: And Thereby Hangs A Tail

    Kohvachn has described it so vividly that one is taken back to one's own childhood and those memories that can get hazy but are at the same time joined by the new ones we form.

    A lovely nomination to wrap up the month.
