10-12-14…if I were you, I would probably follow it up with 16-18-20 but as I am not you (and thankfully you are not me), I will have you know that logically what follows is 11-12-14 followed by 12-12-14, because today is the tenth day of the twelfth month of the fourteenth year of the twenty first century!
It’s the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, or so wrote John Keats.
The naughty month of October is over…the month which is technically the eighth month (Octo meaning eight, in case you didn’t know!), but is actually the tenth.
Thirteen score and zero weeks ago (with due apologies to good friend Abe), or for the mathematically challenged, exactly five years ago some visionaries (like SZ and MP) brought forth on this nation a new column in their new paper; a column conceived in trivia and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created unequal - since the Gettysburg address did not mention the women, I shall also refrain from talking about if they or theirs was created equal!
Strangely enough, a lot of my friends are celebrating today, as technically it’s Mr Nagpal’s and Mr Singh’s birthday, and it reaffirms their conviction that they are drinking from the fountain of youth, and the United Nations General Assembly be damned for having adopted resolution 45/106 on December 14, 1990, designating October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons.
