It was so upsetting for me when they destroyed the Indo-Soviet centre in Trivandrun…..many books were thrown in fire — books which had real fire in them 🙂

reminded of that….and i liked the cookery tip and the restless sun, though we fail to see the light on the otherside sometimes,

And about that picture — was about to say the Che look 🙂

wishes,
devika

So much knowledge lost for good. And this is not the first time. Gives free reign to revisionist history.

Yes, history of a people, a place, a time–leaving only memories.
