A Tragic Tale of Unrequited Love

by duncanr

It was doomed from the start.

His friends told him it would never work, that he was getting ideas above his station – the gulf between them was too wide to be bridged.

They pointed to the difficulties any children of such a mixed marriage would face

He wouldn’t listen, though. He loved her and was determined to win her heart.

The lady was not to be won, however. She toyed with him – allowing him to get close to her at times, then dashing his hopes with a haughty dismissal

For 4 years he tried to win her affection – to no avail

Lord Jagannath visits Kendrapara

by duncanr

A large turtle which wandered into the coastal town of Kendrapara in India has been revered by locals as a reincarnation of the Hindu God, Lord Jagannath (Lord of the Universe).

Crowds have been gathering, bringing with them offerings of fruit, rice, and garlands.

Attempts by Government Officials (it is illegal to restrain a turtle) to ‘release’ the turtle have been thwarted by locals who believe Lord Jagannath has visited them in the form of a turtle.

‘We will not allow anybody to take the turtle away,’ said Ramesh Mishra, a local priest

Hhmm, is it possible for mere mortals to restrain a God ?

Mind you, I can see their point. There is a remarkable likeness.

Turtle gets new fin

by noseycow

Having survived a shark attack, Allison, the Green  turtle’s view on live narrowed dramatically.

She was left with only one fin and consequently could only swim in circles, until staff in Sea Turtle Inc fitted her with a specially designed jacket complete with her own fin!.
