Shame On UC Davis Police, Shame, Shame, Shame!!

This disgusting image is of the police spraying pepper-spray on the peacefully seated students. Democracy & Free USA, indeed! Shame on UC Davis and Shame on USA!

TDPP salutes every single ‘gandian’ student at UC Davis!!


To My Son

Each day in every way I am more blessed by you!

God Bless You Son, Have A Fabulous 20th B’day!!

My son’s friends invited me for his surprise birthday party at midnight. One of the proudest moments of my life.

Belated Birthday Wishes To GK

Believe in yourself –
in the power you have
to control your own life, day by day,
Believe in the strength
that you have deep inside,
and your faith will help
show you the way.
Believe in tomorrow
and what it will bring –
let a hopeful heart carry you through,
For the things will work out
if you trust and believe
there’s no limit
to what you can do.


The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.

We are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.

However, less widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and, presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.

Now consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates. And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?

Believe it or not . . . . . . . a Congress!
