Stick no bills!

web-3

“English is a funny language; that explains why we park our car on the driveway and drive our car on the parkway” Unknown

What is the meaning of stick no bills?

Is this correct English?

Is it not a way of telling, stick something else instead.

Is it not sticking is- ‘thrusting‘ something rather than ‘pasting’?

Should it not be something like-Don’t stick any bills?

Sometimes I find it ODD because one can get the meaning either way.

Maybe it’s Indian English! I am not sure. Maybe something similar to ‘No smoking’

In India, it’s a common occurrence to deface walls during election season and many private walls owners, readily paint ‘Stick no bill’

Strangely bills are stuck very next to the ‘Stick no bills’ sign

Of course, discussion on the English language is always interesting.

Why do people use the sentence ‘just my two cents’ rather than just my one cent?

I don’t know how far the following quotes is correct regarding English language.

“English grammar is so complex and confusing for the one very simple reason that its rules and terminology are based on Latin, a language with which it has precious little in common.”  Bill Bryson

Thankless job

“It is not the beauty of the building you should look at: it’s the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.” David Allen Coe

Do we ever thank the construction workers who build our houses, flats, factories or anything that makes us safe and comfortable?

Do we atleast appreciate it?

I doubt very much.

To be precise, who has got the time to thank some unknown people, when everybody is struggling with their daily chores?

But my friend remember this

“We are surrounded every day by people who do thankless but important work” Brian Kilmeade

Human psychology is that we always enjoy the benefits we get from the hard work of others but fail to appreciate, remember and thank them.

It’s not just your money that can buy you, these things. It is the hard work put forth by these individuals, call them labourers or whatever you may, in bringing the things to your table.

One simple example-Without a farmer’s hard work- you can’t have your tasty food. But how frequently do you remember him and thank him?

The list of people whom we are supposed to thank and be grateful for, is too long.

We think and feel proud that by just paying the money we get these things without bothering or realising how much hard work and sweat, put forth into producing those products.

And we even waste these products and throw them in the dust bin.

Only when you respect and appreciate the value of the hardships of others, you can bring value to the money you possess.

What are the thoughts of the people who do the real hard work?

“A lot of people tell you it’s a thankless job, but I never felt that way. It was an honour for me to serve” Frank Parise

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Rhythm of Life

As a photographer, there are certain occasions where we are unable to think outside the box. And in these situations, one may be tempted to press the shutter for the sake of pressing and taking pictures without anything in the mind.

These random shots may be or may not be interesting to you.

“Doing becomes a habit for us. Most of the time we do things for the sake of doing without really knowing why we are doing.”  Rhythm of Life

Oddball photography comes in handy in these situations and one needs not feel sad for the lack of ideas to make good photography.

“The ordinary thinks inside of the box, the extraordinary think outside of the box, but genius thinks inside, outside, below and above the box.”
