throwback thursday - TBT #19

october 15th is the birthday of my most favourite humour author, the unparalleled p.g.wodehouse.

his characters like the bumbling lord emsworth, the intrepid wooster clan of bertie and his aunts, and that gentleman's personal gentleman, the impeccable jeeves - are immortal.

nothing would make me more happier, than being left alone undisturbed with a stack of wodehouse books by my side :)

throwback thursday - TBT #18

october 8th, 1932 - the Indian Air Force was established in british india. its motto, "nabhaḥ spr̥śaṁ dīptam" meaning "touch the sky with glory" is taken from the 11th chapter of the bhagavad gita.

the first squadron was commissioned the following year with four westland wapiti biplanes and five indian pilots.

mundane monday - #57

yeah. i've generally been a person for whom 'makeup' means just moisturiser. i wear 'real' makeup (like foundation+compact+lipstick etc) no more than a few times a year.
but then there are certain days in your life when you get up in the morning and see in the mirror, and the real 'natural' shocks the hell out of you. you find some creature in the mirror which seems to be a hybrid variety got by crossing medusa with a mountain troll.
i think mornings are not a good time to look 'natural', at least not for me.
