A proverb a day to brighten the day!


367a. Sogar eine Prinzessin ist eine Frau von jemandem. Niemand steht über dem Gesetz.
367b. Even a princess is a wife of someone. No one stands above the law.

Everybody is 'a somebody' to somebody else!
Nobody is 'a nobody' to everybody else!

footnotes:-
Sogar = Even
eine = a
Prinzessin = princess
ist = is
eine = a
Frau = wife
von = of
jemandem somebody.
Niemand = No one
steht = stands
über = over
dem = the
Gesetz = law.

The plight of a princess!

We imagine that the life of every princess was a bed of roses. But the sad truth is that it is far from it. A princess had no freedom to do what she wanted to do. She had to adhere to several severe customs, manners, etiquette.

A princess was the subject of envy, slander, gossip and was the target of the other women wishing to win the favor of the king she had married.

A princess had to get married to any good / bad / ugly / sickly king for making political alliance between their two countries or to evade the imminent wars and sieges by the enemies.

A princess was given away as a prize to the winner of any contests and sports set by the king - her father. A princess was not the mistress of her own destiny.

It is far better to be a normal girl and grow up in freedom than be a princess and live in a golden cage, under a microscope, at the mercy of the others - as long as she lives!

10. Royal bodyguards​




Caterpillars of the imperial blue butterflies are truly imperial!

The reason…..?

They have their own special team of escorts and bodyguards – a band of terrible black ants!

Each morning when the caterpillars leave their nests to feed on the leaves of black wattle trees, the

ants climb up the tree to join them.

The ants use their large strong jaws to drive away any predators, while the caterpillars feed.

The payment for this special duty is the permission to suck the sugary secretion from the back of the

caterpillar.

The ants nest underground. They climb the tree every morning to do their guarding duty.

They even watch over the insects in their pupa stage – for free!

More caterpillars means more honey!

So “Why not?”

Back to the Nature!

Sabhas and gatherings will not be there for a long long time to come. Artists are recording their music and dance for entertaining their fans and the other lovers of arts.

It is nice to see them record in natural surroundings . Picturesque spots, gardens laden with flowers, terrace gardens are usual. Singing/ playing instruments/ dancing in the waves of sea water is unusual.

I hope and pray that they do not take their Art to the next level and to those risky spots - competing with the people who have Selfie-Mania. 🙏

I guess the recording is done in a closed room and dubsmashed in natural surroundings.
For dance, they may used techniques to change the background as per their wish!
My naughty 10 year young student keeps changing his background, during Skype classes like a forest or a huge playground or a gymnasium!

N. சித்திர விசித்திரச் சொற்கள்.​


சித்திரம் ஒன்று நமக்கு வெளிப்படுத்தும்
விசித்திரமான ஆயிரம் சொற்பொருளை!

கண் முன்னே படம் பிடித்துக் காட்டும் இவை!
காமிராவின் வேலையைச் செய்யும் இவை!

இணைச் சொற்களா அன்றி அடுக்குத்தொடரா?
இரட்டைக் கிளவியா? என அறியத் தேவை இல்லை.

அற்புதமான இவற்றைப் பயன்படுத்தி நம்முடைய
கற்பனை வளத்தைக் கூட்டலாமே எழுத்துக்களில்!

A proverb a day to brighten the day!


373a. Die Weisheit einer Eidechse:
"Lieber den Schwanz verlieren als aufgefressen zu werden!

373b. A lizard's wisdom:
"Better to lose the tail than get eaten up!

Clever fishermen use a small fish to lure and catch a bigger fish.
Clever men gift something small and reap rich rewards/ awards / benefits.

Coming to think of it....the converse is also true!

We have seen tailless lizards running around as well lizard-less tails jumping around!
To escape from a big danger we can willingly accept a smaller one.

To save a family, the interest of one of its members may be compromised.
To save a village, the interest of one of its families may be compromised.

To save a country, the interest of one of its villages may be compromised.
Thus the list goes on with black sheep selecting their scapegoat!


footnotes:
Die = The
Weisheit = wisdom
einer Eidechse: = of a lizard
"Lieber = Better
verlieren = lose
den Schwanz = the tail
als zu = than to
werden = be
aufgefressen = eaten up
