The following pictures have been published in thousands of sites, even millions, but I’ll post them anyway. All of the pictures posted represent a particular history at a particular time.

Here are some dark days in the world’s history:

December 3rd, 1984. The first picture was taken in time of the Bhopal Industrial disaster.

The Housemaid Is Leaving

In Bric-a-brac on October 14, 2008 at 4:14 am

Our housemaid is leaving today, she’s been with us since 1994, at first without having any intention to come over and say goodbye. We’re glad, actually, there won’t be any talk-back maid who spends most time doing tasks complaining and grouching anymore. Hopefully she can rest in peace in her new ‘home’.

We are sorry to see you go, so sorry to see that nobody shall treat you the way we have always done, so sorry to see that you may not be as happy as you used to be when you were still with us. Well, It’s your choice…there’s no use crying over spilled milk, it’s sour anyway…
