Quotable Quotes– P.G.Wodehouse

[Aunt Dahlia to Bertie Wooster]

‘To look at you, one would think you were just an ordinary sort of amiable idiot–certifiable, perhaps, but quite harmless. Yet, in reality, you are worse as scourge than the Black Death. I tell you, Bertie, when I contemplate you I seem to come up against all the underlying sorrow and horror of life with such a thud that I thought as much. Well, it needed buttis. I don’t see how things could possibly be worse than they are, but no doubt you will succeed in making them so. Your genius and insight will find the way. Carryon, Bertie. Yes, carryon. I am past caring now. I shall even find a faint interest in seeing into what darker and profounder abysses of hell you can plunge Go to it lad.. I remember years ago, when you were in your cradle, being left alone with you one day and you nearly swallowed your rubber comforter and started turning purple. And I, ass that I was, took it out and saved your life. Let me tell you, young Bertie, it will go very hard with you if you ever swallow a rubber comforter again when only I am by to aid.”―P.G.Wodehouse

Already many people who attended the meet have filed their reports. In this surfeit of praises on the  pleasant and successful meet at Hydrabad another blog will amount to embellishment. There are bloggers who can in a few words say much better what I try to convey through my insipid drivel. But I must salute…

By RAMARAO Garimella | October 12, 2020 | 2 Comments

  Moving forward. I heard this expression often when my wife of forty-six years left for her heavenly abode. Most of my friends and well-wishers, I had plenty in those days, asked me to move forward. I nodded my head and thanked them for their kind advice, but did not know what I should do…

1,   तुम और आप खोखले ‘आप’को हार्दिक ‘तुम’ से बिना कुछ कहे बदल दिया उसने और सारे ख़ुशनुमा सपने प्यार भरी मेरी रूह में जगा दिये उसने. सोच में डूबा खड़ा हूँ उसके सामने, उससे नज़रे हटाने का नहीं है साहस; और कहता हूँ उससे: कितनी प्यारी हो तुम! और सोचता हूँ: कितना प्यार…
