The Bright Orange Clivia Lily

It is spring time again in Perth, Australia.

The flowers are blooming,

Birds are chirping and the weather is getting warmer.

It is the best time to go for long walks and admire the Mother Nature.

Below are the images of Clivia lilies which I have captured  on my smart phone.

The bright orange Clivia lilies are native to South Africa also referred as kafir lilies.

Is it  is politically correct to refer as “kafir” lilies nowadays?

The photo was taken few years ago at Hikkaduwa beach in Sri Lanka.  On a hot summer day king coconut water is heavenly. The coconut water is  sweet and healthy and a wonderful re-hydrant.

King Coconut is native to Sri Lanka and referred as  “Sev -izhanheer” in Tamil and Thembilli in Sinhala.

At this  juncture, lets reminisce an old song “I got a  lovely bunch of coconuts” composed in 1944 by Fred Heatherton. The re-make of the song in 1950, sung by the vocalist Merv Griffin with the Freddy Martin and his Orchestra  was in top 10 hit in the USA and sold 3 million copies. Hope you will enjoy the number as I did.

Who are the real Robbers? (Thought for the night!)

During a bank robbery, the bank robber shouted:

“Do not Move! The money belongs to the Government.”

 “Your life belongs to you!”

Everyone at the scene laid down quietly.

(This is a tactic referred as ‘mind changing concept’ – changing the conventional way of thinking)


During this time a woman laid on the floor provocatively – one of the robber yelled at her:

“Please be civilized! This is a robbery not a rape!”

(This is “being professional” -Focus only on what you are trained to do!

When the robbers returned home with their loot,

The educated younger robber told the uneducated but experienced older robber

“ Big brother Lets count the money” 

The older robber rebuked:

“You are stupid!, there is so much of notes and it will take us all night and day to count. Wait for tonight, the TV news will tell us how much we have taken from the bank”
(Experience is more important than the paper qualification!)

After the robbers left the bank manager asked the supervisor to call the Police But the supervisor said to him:
“Wait! Let us take out $10 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $70 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.

(“Swim with the tide” Converting an unfavourable situation to your advantage!)

The supervisor says: It will be good if there is a robbery every month..”
(“Changing priority”  – Personal Happiness is more important than your job”)

The bank manager was happy because his losses in the share market are now covered by this robbery.

“Seizing the opportunity” Daring to take risks!)
The next day, the TV news reported that $100 million was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted, but they could only count $20 million.

So who are the real robbers here?
