Getting away from the mundane of life and walking into the library is a refreshing and rejuvenating exercise. Incidently my eye fell upon a book titled "10-10-10", with 14 day loan and nor renewal labeled with red on it.  My curiosity pricked me. what book is it the that you can not renew after 14 days. It must be something good that everyone read, so library, doest allow everyone to keep longer than 2 weeks  to make it available and accessible when readers demand is soaring.

Gigantic Accumulations

As I awoke from my slumber, and strained my ears to the outside activities, the lives outside has stopped to screnching halt. The dawn has a sense of serenity to it, until I saw the piling up of snows and it is still falling. It is not like the usual day, when you could be hearing cars passing by and the loud yell of some bystanders or the morning walker. It is Saturday, and it is snowing day. it is a day that I had to reckon with numerous problems.

Adding legs to Snake

I was reading an interesting primary school tales of idioms in Chinese language.With the help of friends, I gained some comprehension of the story. These folklores or classic tales is narrated with the focus of introducing a new idioms in Chinese. What interested me most is the freshness of the wit and wisdom in the tales. These stories are short and to the point, with sharp focus on the origin of the idioms. As our culture and tradition are passed down  through the folktale and stories. I find it very intriguing how the common and idiomatic expressions have its root.  In the following, I would like to narrate the stories that I read in Chinese.

The Crucible

Watching the movie " The Crucible" by Arthur Miller and then having read the play makes me ponder on the question of personal integrity and dignity for a faithful Christian . The word crucible according to dictionary means "a severe test or trial of ones belief and patience". In a nutshell the play is about the paradox of the unquestional believe and trust  in God and for the very reason the adherents/ followers of christian beliefs  are doomed /or costed them a heavy price.

Is Tibetan issue foundamentally an issue of livelihood?

2008 was a turning point, a mile stone in Tibetan freedom movement. The massive uprising  was unsuccessful in bringing the desired changes in Tibet, and the Chinese government remained unperturbed. The Chinese government were quick to blame the unrest as  planned and orchestrated by the Dalai Lama and his exile governments. Bejing goverment also downplayed the massive  protest as as unrest by few Tibetans. The reality was,  it was one of the biggest ever protest, involving all Tibetan areas under China.
Despite of the magnitude of the event, why the Chinese government didnt barge an inch? Bejing government didnt  see it a big issue, because they could play one section of the Tibetan against another. They have Tibetan loyalists, who wag their tails to the Chinese bosses. The biggest shortcomings of the protest was when all Tibetans were not united in this protest.
