Ideas and Opinions by Albert Einstein

 

img_20150710_204134_hdr1-1437984948-1 Finally managed to finish reading this book, I could only think of this quote at the moment:

“What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.” ― Carl Sagan

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home.

And I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust……..

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed its knees
By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
Held on as tightly as you held onto me
Held on as tightly as you held onto me……

And I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust……..

Global Translation Day

highres_449389315

Excited, and happy to take part in co-organizing Global Translation Day. April 24th, it’s a day which marks a 24-hour translation sprint all over the globe, starting from the East and ends in most Western parts of the world. The idea is to get people involved into translating WordPress in their local language.

Being part of the WordPress Kochi community, we have been working towards the goal of bringing WordPress part of our Malayalam vocabulary. We are very glad on how things turned up, and the tremendous amount of participation, and contribution from Kochi WordPress lovers.
