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

Mellowed out and enlightened septuagenarian. Tech savvy. Social writing is just a pastime to kill time. I keep contributing to several developmental projects in the area of engineering education, IT and Healthcare projects launched by my kith and kin.

बर्फ का साण्ड

By Charumati Ramdas | December 16, 2021

बर्फ़ का साण्ड‌   गाँव, जाड़ों की रात, एक बजे दूर के कमरों से अध्ययन-कक्ष तक बच्चे के कातर रोने की आवाज़ सुनाई दे रही है. ड्योढ़ी, दालान और गाँव सब कुछ काफ़ी देर से सो रहा है. नहीं सो रहा है सिर्फ खुश्योव. वह बैठकर पढ़ रहा है. कभी-कभी अपनी थकी हुई आँखें मोमबत्ती…
