Other KIds Doodle When They Are Bored, She Draws Mandalas On Her Hand — Part II.

This is how she came home on Monday, October 21, 2019. They had had a long 4.5-day weekend off and it was hard for her to go back to school. So, this is what she did to keep herself occupied.

She gets bored at school — gets bored a lot. But, unlike others she does not, any longer, doodle on her notebooks or folder covers.

Very impressive. Looks like henna or even a glove.

Kind of surprised that teachers haven’t noticed. But, that is also tells its own story.

‘The Current War’ THE MOVIE — I Am Real Eager To See This As Soon As It Comes Out.

This is a story that continues to intrigue and enthrall I. I know the basic plotline and, of course, who won. Nonetheless, I am a huge fan of Tesla (and for the record, of the car company too — and yes, I am a shareholder). I have watched a couple of documentaries — though I have yet to read a book on it.

I had heard about this movie. Then it fell off my radar. Then this last week I kept on seeing trailers for it and each time it was ‘yes, yes, I want to see it‘. So, I am going. Not sure where it is showing. But, I have time. It is next week.

I did some quick Googling. I was not familiar with what had happened, i.e., it getting shelved, sold etc. Wow.

Well, let me go see it first. I will, of course, share with you. SMILE.

2019 Christmas Revels (Cambridge, MA), ‘An American Celebration’ — Tickets Going On Sale Soon.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access description at the ‘Harvard Box Office’.



This should be a BLAST. Close to home. Music that we probably are somewhat familiar with.

Cambridge Revels never disappoints. That is a part of their charter. That is why we make the 2-hour pilgrimage, each December, snow or shine, to catch their show.

Tickets, for us plebs, as of October 20.

Just giving you a heads up. It is OK, you don’t have to thank me. SMILE.

Watch Mighty Parade & Celebrations For China’s 70th Anniversary ‘National Day’ — Oct. 1, 2019.

by Anura Guruge



3-minute highlights.


3-hour HD version
from Chinese TV.


October 1, 2019 marked the 70th anniversary of ‘modern’ China — i.e., 70-years since Communist Rule.

They marked it with a huge parade. Some claim the largest military parade — at least in recent times.

I am fortunate enough to watch British news — typically Sky News on my Roku — many nights a week. Last two nights British news has started off showing parts of this parade before cutting off to talk about the protests in Hong Kong. I did not see the parade covered at all on CNN and MSNBC news. So, I wanted to make sure YOU at least heard about it.

Definitely worth watching. Lots of high-tech military innovations.

You can thank me later.

Impressive & Topical, 20′ Statue Of 140 Migrants Installed In St. Peter’s Square — By Canadian Sculpture.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From the Canadian ‘Global News’ article BELOW.


Click to access the ‘Global News’ article. Above picture was taken from this article. Google for more.


Impressive. I am told the first statue to be installed in St. Peter’s Square in 400-years!

Extremely topical subject both in the U.S. and Europe. So, the timing is impeccable. The statue is by Canadian Timothy Schmalz and is called ‘Angels Unaware‘. He is best known for his ‘Homeless Jesus‘.

‘Homeless Jesus’. Click to ENLARGE.


I like both statues, BUT I will confess that when I saw the pictures of ‘Angels Unaware’ I was immediately — and I mean like at once — reminded of one of my favorite sculptures, Rodin’sThe Burghers of Calais‘. Again a story of those forsaken. Yes, Rodin’s only has 6 people. It was just the overall look and theme.

One of favorites by Rodin, ‘The Burghers of Calais’ by at the Victoria Tower Gardens, London, England. Again there are copies including one at the New York Met.

Watch the YouTube video.


She worked it out today and was very pleased with herself.

You must have worked it out.

You need to have enough hair or wear a wig so that you can have a big bun on top of your head.

Thought it might amuse you. Amused I.

Enjoy.



Hula Hoop collection and my custom holder for them.
