“So why is your state called Kerala?”
“Because of the abundance of coconut trees here. Keram means coconut palm and “alam” means place. So Keralam is literally “the land of coconut palms.”
“You’re not pulling a fast one, are you?”
“Look, we aren’t the only ones who have named a place after the most abundant resource available there. What do you think Hawaii means?”
“What does it mean?”
“The land of pineapples.”
That’s how you pull a fast one.
Note: Hawaii is indeed known as the land of pineapples, but it’s not the literal translation of the word.
Release me. Why have you held me captive, beautiful soul?
Had your dazzle dulled just a mote, slowly I could have shrunk back,
But you blaze in all your glory, your brilliance blinds me, it binds me.
Have mercy on me, beautiful one, I cry to you all night and day,
Take pity on my wretched state, can you not see me suffering?
Your magnificence has vanquished my hunger and sleep
I yearn for your grace, like a rain bird in the desert,
Why have you held me captive, beautiful soul? Release me.
You’re beautiful and you sparkle with intelligence.
While you consort with ppl who tlk lyk diz cuz dey tink itz kool
The only thing I will say to you is, “Go right ahead, you’re a fool.”
A scar is the most beautiful thing on a human body.
“Come, let me warm you up,” says the warm heart.
The finding of heart in the most unexpected of places, when you’re not even looking.
