Henry Fonda

Henry Fonda ( 1905 – 1982 ) was American stage and Film actor who appeared in more than 90 films over six decades and created quintessential American heroes known for their integrity. 

I hope you won’t be disappointed. You see I am not a very interesting person. I haven’t ever done anything except be other people.

I ain’t really Henry Fonda!

Nobody could be.

Nobody could have that much integrity.

Henry Fonda

If there is something in my eyes, a kind of honesty in the face, then I guess you could say that’s the man I’d like to be, the man I want to be.

Henry Fonda

I look like my father. To this day, when I walk past a mirror and see my reflection in it, my first impression is: That’s my father. There is a strong Fonda look.

Henry Fonda

I don’t really like myself. Never did. People mix me up with the characters I play. I’m not a great guy like Doug Roberts [in ‘Mister Roberts’]. I’d like to be but I’m not. Henry Fonda

Ella Fitzgerald

Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996)

Ella Fitzgerald is “The First Lady of Song,” best known for her vocal talents, including an impressively wide vocal range partnered with a uniquely sweet voice and a whimsical flair to her singing. She is also very much recognized for her scat singing and her ability to mimic musical instruments. Her journey from her humble beginnings to her rise to stardom is truly a tale of success, heart, passion, love, and perseverance.

Ella Fitzgerald set the gold standard in the art of jazz singing.

Everybody wants to know about my style and how it came about. It’s no big secret. It’s the way I feel. Ella Fitzgerald

I used to be very self-conscious. I used to wish I was pretty. My cousin Georgia always taught me that if you smile, people will like you. Sometimes people will say something you don’t like, and you get angry a bit, but you just smile. You let it go by, even if you really would like to choke ’em. By smiling, I think I’ve made more friends than if I was the other way. Ella Fitzgerald

The only thing better than singing is more singing. Ella Fitzgerald

Music is the universal language … it brings people closer together. Ella Fitzgerald

I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt … she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night.

She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night.

The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.

When once Marilyn Monroe  was asked about her favorite singers,

Marilyn Monroe  answered, “Well, my very favorite person, and I love her as a person as well as a singer, I think she’s the greatest, and that’s Ella Fitzgerald

Soldiers of Humanity

Once, a division of the Japanese army was engaged in a sham battle, and some of the officers found it necessary to make their headquarters in Gasan’s temple.

Gasan told his cook: “Let the officers have only the same simple fare we eat.”

This made the army men angry , as they were used to very deferential treatment.

One came to Gasan and said: “Who do you think we are?

We are soldiers, sacrificing our lives for our country.

Why don’t you treat us accordingly?”

Gasan answered sternly: “Who do you think we are?

We are Soldiers of Humanity, aiming to save all sentient beings .”

Whom shall I tell ?

Translation:

by Kartar Singh Duggal

It’s all in One contained.
Understand the One and forge the rest.
Shake off your ways of an apostate pest
Leading to the grave to hell and to torture
Rid your mind of dreams of disaster
This is how is the argument maintained
It’s all in One contained.

He who believes, he alone has known
Everyone else is floundering
All the wrangling came to an end
When Bulleh came to town.
Whom shall I tell?

Bulleya Ki Jaana Main Kaun! – Happy Ho

Syed Abdullah Shah Gilani, known as Bulleh Shah, was a Punjabi philosopher and He was a Sufi mystic poet and is universally regarded as “The father of Punjabi enlightenment”

Nobel Prize 1929 in Physics

The Nobel Prize in Physics 1929 was awarded to Prince Louis-Victor Pierre Raymond de Broglie “for his discovery of the wave nature of electrons.”


Louis de Broglie, in full Louis-Victor-Pierre-Raymond, 7th duc de Broglie ( 1892 – 1987 ) was a French physicist who made groundbreaking contributions to quantum theory.

In his 1924 PhD thesis he postulated the wave nature of electrons and suggested that all matter has wave properties. he changed our understanding of how the universe works by developing a theory for the wave-particle duality of electrons.

This concept is known as the de Broglie hypothesis, an example of wave-particle duality, and forms a central part of the theory of quantum mechanics.

„The actual state of our knowledge is always provisional and … there must be, beyond what is actually known, immense new regions to discover.“ Louis de Broglie,

The history of science shows that the progress of science has constantly been hampered by the tyrannical influence of certain conceptions that finally came to be considered as dogma.“ Louis de Broglie,

„Two seemingly incompatible conceptions can each represent an aspect of the truth … They may serve in turn to represent the facts without ever entering into direct conflict.“ Louis de Broglie,

Roger Federer

Roger Federer pulls out of 2021 French Open .

A legendary Swiss player, who dominated the sport in the early 21st century with his exceptional all-around game.

His total of 20 career men’s singles Grand Slam championships (a feat later matched by Rafael Nadal ) is the most in tennis history.

Federer won his third-round match on Saturday

“After discussions with my team, I’ve decided I will need to pull out of Roland-Garros today,” Federer said in a Sunday statement. “After two knee surgeries and over a year of rehabilitation.

” it’s important that I listen to my body ” and make sure I don’t push myself too quickly on my road to recovery.

I am thrilled to have gotten three matches under my belt. There is no greater feeling than being back on the court.”

It is and it has been always mesmerized by the effortless play from the Swiss Master since 2000 . Still have memory of Wimbledon 2001 where he defeated another great champion Pete Sampras and the last Saturday at French Open 2021 third round match.

Love all.

Traveler of Time

Mind is a Monkey jumping all the times (24 X 7) from one to many branches of desires .

Claws of Time rust and dust everybody .

Today during Morning walk on the side of walking track , saw many bottles of beer , one of which also had a picture of Monkey .

Intoxication is a Temporary Bail from the Cage of Mind .

Be a Traveler of Time intoxicated with Beauty of Timeless Nature.

Love all.
