Poem of the day
Success And Failure
by Edgar Albert Guest
I do not think all failure's undeserved,
And all success is merely someone's luck;
Some men are down because they were unnerved,
And some are up because they kept their pluck.
Some men are down because they chose to shirk;
Some men are high because they did their work.
I do not think that all the poor are good,

To love someone is to identify with them.
Comments about poetsJustin M. Vicroy: “This is not a time to be dismayed, this is punk rock time. This is what Joe Strummer trained you for.” - Henry Rollins
David Brook: Henry Rollins is selling $160 "meet and greet" tickets. Good Lord Hank!
Sundance Now: Do you remember sharing your feelings with someone through a mix tape?
Analog Love is a joyful look at why this ritual of communication through music still continues to be so meaningful. The documentary includes insights from Henry Rollins and Money Mark (Beastie Boys).
John: Les Claypool of course..Henry Rollins on vocal.
Tom Jackman: Dr. Bonnie Henry on 6/22/2022: "All of those things that we were doing that really made a difference - staying apart and wearing masks and contact tracing - it's just not possible when a virus is spreading that rapidly."
It's as though public health here is run by anti-maskers.
Rory Blank: yes, not all wrestlers are built like that, but the key to successful illustration is to make the figures instantly recognizable and for pro wrestlers the key is to give them henry rollins necks
angharad morgan Ⴟ: this picture of henry rollins from 1983 lives in my head rent free
Himanta Biswa Sarma: Interaction with flood-affected people during my visit to Bajali.
IntolerantJ: Never knew doing nothing as Home Minister, even while country descends into anarchy and lawlessness is regarded as Chanakya masterstroke. Chanakya will turn in his grave.
YuYuTsu: 2)He nearly retired from politics in 1991. It was the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi that persuaded him to make a comeback.
3)He proved himself as 'Chanakya' for his ability to steer tough economic and political legislation in Parliament at a time when he headed a minority govt.
Nitin Gupta: Beginning provides the context to a story.
Story without context is propaganda.
This is why they hate Kashmir Files, survey at Gyanwapi temple, story of 59 hindus burnt alive at Godhra, Temple Pillar stone bases found under Babri.
Because context punctures their propaganda!
Saumya Mishra.: Comparing Chanakya with Amit Shah is as wrong as comparing Mother India (Bharat Mata) with Indira Gandhi.
One is right and another is wrong is hypocrisy. Your likeness will not change the fact that politicians
cannot be goddesses or immortal Gurus.
तेजस । Tejas K: Lavde ka chanakya aur lavde ka mass leader. Can't win without forging anything.
Maj Gen Rajan Kochhar: Gave a talk in Amity University on Environmental issues. 53.30 to 1.07
Saumya Mishra.: Yess. This is real Chanakya, and NO ONE will ever be able to replace him or reach his position.
Please pick some other role model, Kautilya is our Guru, we give him the topmost respect in our home. And he is not for comparison with any political body.
