The Grand old Man of Indian Nationalism..

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

The Grand old Man of Indian Nationalism..

Post by Who2 »

Yesterday, I went to buy a assortment of pumpkins!...

Now round here, history abounds..
2 minutes from me is Naoroji St.

Named after Dada Naoroji (1825-1917)

15807
Dada was a zoroastrian, he even started a European Trust Fund for Zoroastrianism.
'I've held a soft spot for them for years, ever since " Thus Spake Zarathustra" Fred Nietzsche.

Gandhi wrote to Naoroji in 1894, saying that:
"The Indians look up to you as children to the father. Such is really the feeling here."

He was so fed up with our British Empire he came over here to the source, to sort it out.
Clerkenwell, home to the world's revolutionists & thinkers..

He tried magnificently, but failed...
The Zoroastrian religion states: 'that active and ethical participation in life through good deeds formed from good thoughts and good words is necessary to ensure happiness and to keep chaos at bay....inhale!

"Drink wine in moderation, for who so drinks wine immoderately falls into many a sin.”
Probably due to hanging out with Marx & Engels in our many pubs...

So my little bit for Black lives Matter, a little bit of history... 8)

Ps: Oh! the pumpkins ? 'A clever idea of mine for our al-fresco (cafe-society) market tables...
Pss: And another, just round the corner next to the aptly named 'George & Monkey PH.

P*ss: Religions, Politics and Pissheads 'sorted!

Just rushed into the office to inform Simona, that the President of the United States has just been shot in Dallas.
She was on the phone and freaked!
Then I told her it was only Kevin Spacey: Series 4 episode 4.

Well it is 7.o'clock... 8)
