Word: Light: AmitL

(Quip for above pic: Life explained, using 'Light'(hearted) joke)

Hi,Everyone...how was your Diwali?Here's wishing you a scintillating,delightful,thrilling......New Year, and many more to come. I was putting together the 'light' post since four days,and wasn't able to compile it,for one reason or the other.(Read: Reason=excuse)...but,then,better late than never,so here goes:


Let there be light’!

Isn’t that a wonderful phrase? And, isn’t light a wonderful word? I’ve seen/ I see light in daily life as :

- Light at the end of a tunnel: Results coming up at the end of hard work.
- Light-hearted conversation, or, attempts to make a conversation light-hearted, as I usually try to do..LOL.
- Movement at ‘light’ning speed- like, he moves faster than lightning, when his GF screams/shouts.
- Phrase: It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
- Tripping the light fantastic: Dancing away,painting the town red.
- Greased Lightning (As the song from Grease goes)
- In ‘light’ of this new development, let us plan our next move.
- Light up, as in lighting a ciggie.(No, not me, tku..I’m just a silent observer and a passive smoke-inhaler..Arghh)

- Sun-light streaming through the bedroom windows in the morning.

It also reminds me of something I always wonder: At home,we say 'Switch on the light'(Light on karna,in Hindi)..is this the right way to say it? Or,should we say'switch on the bulb/electricity/tubelight'???

And, now, how about some bad’ lights’? Like:
- Driving through a red light: leads to hefty fines out here.
- A Red Light District,a la: Mumbai's RLD's in movies, or, Holland's RLD,which literally has Red Lights,like on top of a police siren, all around 'those' buildings,to warn the good ones to stay away.
Any more? Additions welcome,BUFers.
Till next time,cheers!Have a nice week.

    and it also reminds me of a chapter in school ... i think it was the most difficult chapter in Physics!

    and errrh thats it .. u covered almost everything .... its stupid .. but when i read the titles first ... the first thing came in my mind after reading light was "RDL" ;p ;p ... coz u knw when I was going to Paris with a friend of mine recently ... we both booked a hotel on the internet ... which was situated in central Paris ... right next to Moulin Rouge .. and it was VERY cheap .... when i told this to mom all excited and proud that we were saving money .. my mom was like "u kiddin me? its gotta be a red light area!!" lol .. and omg omg when i did some R n D on the internet ... yes it was ... surrounded by sex shops and brothels too probably!! loll
