Needed to make a difficult decision whom to give the lone ICU vacant bed....as 8 patients were in need of high flow oxygen. Went through the terrible painful filtering process , looking at the age, chance of coming out, comorbid conditions etc. Very upsetting!

நீங்க வேணா பாருங்க, மாரிதாஸ்/மதன் போன்ற சூத்திர சங்கிகள் எல்லாம் ஏதாவது ஒரு கேஸ்ல மாட்டுவாங்க. ஆனா மாயவராத்தான்/நாய்சேகர் போன்ற சங்கிகள் சாவர்க்கர் ஸ்டைலில் கால்ல விழுந்து மன்னிப்புக்கேட்டுட்டு தப்பிச்சிடுவாங்க. இவங்களுக்கு ஆட்சி மாறினாலும் மேலிடத்தில் ஆள் இருந்திட்டே இருப்பாங்க.

இதுதான் மார்க்சிஸ்ட் கம்யூனிஸ்ட் கட்சி கட்சி...

Wow I love this: today is the launch of the e. e. cummings free poetry archive! A project that shows what we can do when works enter the public domain.

There's nothing wrong with reading a book you love over and over. When you do, the words get inside you, become a part of you, in a way that words in a book you've read only once can't. - Gail Carson Levine

I appreciate this WordPress philosophy overview. More products should be built with these principles in mind:

Works with little configuration and setup
Designed for the majority
Makes decisions, not options
Clean, lean and mean
Strives for simplicity

இணையம் இருப்பவர்கள்தான் தடுப்பூசிக்கு பதிவு செய்ய வேண்டும் என ஒரு நாதாரி கூறுகிறான் என்றால் அவன் எந்த உலகத்தில் வாழ்கிறான் என்று நினைத்துப் பாருங்கள்.

டிஜிட்டல் இந்தியா என்பது ஒரு மாயை. பணமதிப்பிழப்பை ஞாயப்படுத்த உருவாக்கப்பட்ட பொய்.

இன்னும் அந்தப் பொய் எத்தனை பேரைக் கொல்லும்?

Hot tip for increasing your joint mobility in a short time: ditch the chair. Sit on the floor instead. This simple hack will drastically increase the range of motion in your ankles, knees, and hips. No amount of ergonomic chair will beat squatting down and getting up many times a day.
