John Wayne
(as Rooster Cogburn)

Goudy: Now is it not true that you sprang up on old man Wharton and his two sons with a deadly, six shot revolver in your hand?
Rooster Cogburn: I always try to be ready.
Goudy: Was this revolver loaded and cocked?
Rooster Cogburn: Well, a gun that’s unloaded and cocked ain’t good for nothin’.

Kim Darby
(as Mattie Ross)

Mattie Ross: [watching Rooster load his revolver] Why do you keep that one chamber empty?
Rooster Cogburn: So I won’t shoot my foot off.

Strother Martin
(as Col. G. Stonehill)

Mattie Ross: Do you know a Marshal Rooster Cogburn?
Col. G. Stonehill: Most people around here have heard of Rooster Cogburn and some people live to regret it. I would not be surprised to learn that he’s a relative of yours.


Mattie Ross: I hope you don’t think I’m going to keep you in whiskey?
Rooster Cogburn: I don’t buy that, I confiscate it. And a touch of it wouldn’t do you any harm against the night air!
Mattie Ross: I would not put a thief in my mouth to steal my brains!
Rooster Cogburn: Well, it’s the real article! Genuine, double-rectified bust head. Aged in the keg.

Love of Learning

“If we succeed in giving the love of learning, the learning itself is sure to follow.”

― John Lubbock,

(30 April 1834 – 28 May 1913)

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea,

are excellent schoolmasters,

and

teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
John Lubbock

what is love of learning …….

love is a yearning  of our inner core to explore our origin

for that we need to learn from nature or in the classroom ……

beauty is the essence of our learning from nature …..

and

creativity is essence of classroom teaching to explore nature ….

what we understand as modern science

or

creativity is science of spirituality where we share our love of learning

in

different ways of individual expressions into performing arts and crafts.

LEARN has EAR in center ……

Ear is an organ works 24 x 7  and gives us sense of time

and at the same time art of listening to listen timeless …….

Indian classical music is basically art of listening timeless

so are the music around the globe

Indian way is a visual expression ……. learning can be made interesting by way of visual communication or by story telling ……. which brings love of learning ….look at the picture and as you will contemplate on it ……. the picture will start talking to you with its hidden meaning

Saraswati is the Goddess of learning, knowledge, and wisdom. The Sanskrit word sara means “essence” and swa means “self.” Thus Saraswati means “the essence of the self.”

Saraswati is represented in Hindu mythology as the divine consort of Lord Brahma, the Creator of the universe. Since knowledge is necessary for creation, Saraswati symbolizes the creative power of Brahma. 

The lotus is a symbol of the Supreme Reality,  By sitting on a lotus, Saraswati signifies that She is Herself rooted in the Supreme Reality, and symbolizes supreme knowledge.

The white color symbolizes purity and knowledge. The white sari that the Goddess is wearing denotes that She is the embodiment of pure knowledge.

each object in the picture signifies wisdom , wisdom and wisdom , …… explore 

let Goddess Saraswathi bestows us with love of learning …..

Love all.

Music : flow of life

Good and God’s morning …..

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” 
― Albert Einstein

how great this spiritual scientist Albert Einstein was ….

music is harmony of time and timeless …..harmony of left and right brain ….. harmony is vibrating at the same frequency as of nature …… harmony is harmony within for a flow of life outside …..

many time people ask why Indian music has raga system which corresponds with every hour of day and night ?….. 

Sun and Moon movements make temperature of day and night in every season of the year and produce flow of air waves at a particular wave length and vibrations …… 

as two eyes vision merge to bring the dimension of depth so is Indian raga music system …..so the vibrations of the artist performance match with the vibrations of air to produce a stereo phonic divine depth experience of timelessness …..

this experience of this timelessness is the purpose of all world music ….and thanks God ….. Indian classical music is truly a music of timelessness …..so being my date to update my wordpress Music blog …….Music = harmony with God.

what ever music I post on my Blog has to have this dimension of timelessness ……. and love music from across the world ….I am a world music citizen …..and my religion is music only ….but before that not to forget ….

See how beautifully….. God has added one more day in our life…….life is a celebrations of everyday as birthday….Happy Birthday to everyone …….with all the good wishes and greetings …..

so start this morning with this clip features a rendition of Basant Mukhari, a morning raga. This is the alap (solo) part of the performance. The concert was recorded on March 9th, 1991 in Bern Switzerland. Krishnaji is accompanied on the tabla by Jatindra Thakur, and on tanpura by Gunther Becker…

Love all.

Someone Like You : by Adele

A track from Adele’s second album, ’21’, ‘Someone Like You’ has reached a huge audience, without synthesizers or Auto-Tune.  It was the first single of the 2010s to sell over one million copies in the UK.

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things, I didn’t give to you
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it
I had hoped you’d see my face
And that you’d be reminded that for me, it isn’t over

Love all.
