Musings of a Veteran – Part 1 – Zest for Lifekarve

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 07:27:49 +0000

During my days in the Navy (the Military Navy) – which is considered to be a “dangerous” profession – I never had thoughts of “death”. And now – as a Navy Veteran – in the relative “safety” of retirement – thoughts of “death” sometimes come to my mind. Quite ironic – isn’t it…?

How to become a “Gentleman” (or “Lady”)karve

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 07:32:22 +0000

This morning – while tidying my bookcase and bookshelves and cleaning my books – I browsed through my old diaries which I have preserved with great care. During my student days – and even later – during my Navy days – I always carried around a diary and jotted down anything I found interesting – anything I read or heard or saw that appealed to […](image)

Sometime ago – I met a lady at a family get-together. The lady’s daughter-in-law was dutifully following her all around – like the lamb in the nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb” When someone asked the lady where her son and daughter-in-law lived – the lady said: “Of course my son and “daughter-in-law” stay with me in our house – I believe in the Joint Family System…”  A few […](image)

Earlier – when I wrote “non-creative” articles and professional/research papers etc – I never faced this problem – and – I could start off writing […](image)

Humor in Uniform – Join the Navy and See the Worldkarve

Once we joined the Navy in the 1970’s – we realized that the recruitment slogan “Join the Navy and See the World” applied to the Merchant Navy – and not to the Indian Navy – which was a Military Navy.  In fact – due to “austerity measures” – even the so-called “cruises” to nearby countries had been curtailed. However – things seem to much better now – […](image)
