Paintings That Silence The Chatter Of Mind…

Dravidian Women – I

Reminiscent of an era gone. S.Elayaraja has breathed life into the faces and lives of uncaptured people … the common crowd in everyday moments of life. Exquisite innocent expressions with delicate play of light and fine details will captivate you with its like realism.a reflections of his thoughts each painting reaches out to you with the naive eyes of its subjects engrossed in their own little world of regular work…”

A Modest Rejoinder

publicdomainvectors.org

A supercilious nabob of the East–

Haughty, being great–purse-proud, being rich–

A governor, or general, at the least,

I have forgotten which–

Had in his family a humble youth,

Who went from England in his patron’s suite,

An unassuming boy, and in truth

A lad of decent parts, and good repute.

*

This youth had sense and spirit;

But yet, with all his sense,

Excessive diffidence

Obscured his merit.

*

One day, at table, flushed with pride and wine,

His honor, proudly free, severely merry,

Conceived it would be vastly fine

To crack a joke upon his secretary.

*

“Young man,” he said, “by what art, craft, or trade,

Did your good father gain a livelihood?”–

“He was a saddler, sir,” Modestus said,

“And in his time was reckoned good.”

*

“A saddler, eh! and taught you Greek,

Instead of teaching you to sew!

Pray, why did not your father make

A saddler, sir, of you?”

*

Each parasite, then, as in duty bound,

The joke applauded, and the laugh went round.

At length Modestus, bowing low,

Said (craving pardon, if too free he made),

“Sir, by your leave, I fain would know

Your father’s trade!”

Young Man

“My father’s trade! Bless me, that’s too bad!

My father’s trade? Why, blockhead, are you mad?

My father, sir, did never stoop so low–

He was a gentleman, I’d have you know.”

*

“Excuse the liberty I take,”

Modestus said, with archness on his brow,

“Pray, why did not your father make

A gentleman of you?”

You Didn’t Tell Me To…

New Hatton Garden heist imageDuring a bank heist the Chief told the Sergeant to cover all exits so the robbers could not get away.

Later the Sergeant reports to the chief.

“Sorry sir but they got away.”

The chief very disappointed says, “I told you to cover all exits!”

“I did” replied the Sergeant. “but they got away through the entrance.”
