    How old were you when you learned that Lal Bahadur Shastri was also born on October 2nd? I must have been in class seven or eight and we had a social studies teacher who used to regale us with such tidbits. We loved his class period and teaching but this time half of us didn’t really believe him. The bell rang and we were still arguing about it among ourselves.

    I guess the people of India never meant to celebrate Shastri ji any less. It just happened that a more well-known and recognizable man had the same birthday.

    In IL, there are posts that stand out immediately like a Gandhiji image on a 1 5 10 20 50 100 or 500 rupee note. While some equally valuable ones are rarer and take some recognizing like a Shastri ji image on a commemorative 5 rupee coin.

    Let’s look for both kinds of posts and bring them to Finest Post nominations this month. :grinning:

    I remember Maruti 800 sighing and saying "When I grow I will be a Mercedes Benz"
    When I read your posts I tell myself "One day I will write like Rihana"

    Indeed. One should not lose the sight of forest when in search of wood. I shall look for "coins" more than ever.

    @Rihana - Happy October!
    I’d like to start October by nominating a person of minimal words. @MalStrom never writes more than a few sentences but her posts pack a punch! Take a look at her response to Anusha in Cousins' Tiff Over Not Inviting Them For Party
    Sometimes, grief magnifies even the non existent flaw. There is no good way to know how someone who is grieving will react. I like how M explains to A that this isn’t her doing. Even when we know it isn’t exactly our fault, someone asking us to not take it personally helps!

    This is definitely a lesson learned for all of us. Reach out directly, not through siblings, parents or other go between. Sometimes we do need to hear from people directly.

    I’d love to nominate Malstrom for FP!

    :hello:Dr @Rihana & hon’ble @Cheeniya
    MY NOMINATION as under:

    First Period
    A beloved mother’s FB - hitting the nail well & deep on head of another mother in subtle manner indicates how frightened the other mother’s daughter at puberty could be when mother can’t handle her own body.
    A thoughtful positive reply to OP is fine for FP for ongoing month and hence i nominate this.

    I owe my Thanks to @Laks09 that I re visited this nominated fb post without stating the author of the post. The omission is regretted.
    The fb ibid is written by IL professor of mathematics
    @hrastro .
