Time For Some Fun.

My fellow Friday 2 on 1 blogger Shackman has suggested this week’s topic as “Time For Some Fun” and gives three topics. Please go over to his blog to see what he has to say about this topic.

Favourite song lyrics.
Most overrated book/series.
Fave movie in the last year.

The first one is very simple for me. It is this poignant song that has been a ear worm for me for decades.

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone?
Girls have picked them every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?
Where have all the young girls gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the young girls gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the young girls gone?
Taken husbands every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?
Where have all the young men gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the young men gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the young men gone?
Gone for soldiers every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Long time ago.

The next one – Most overrated book/series.

For me, it is a no brainer. It is How To Make Friends And Influence People. . In my not so humble opinion, it is the most superficial way to establish relationships and not for long term ties. The less said the better about this book that made many people snake oil salesmen.

The last one – Fave movie in the last year. For me it was Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.

How Do You Identify Your Mojo.

This Friday’s LBC blog post’s title was suggested by Pravin whose take on this topic can be seen here. The other blogger who is sure to write Shackman’s post can be seen here. The latter is sure to have a good laugh when he reads my post!

mojo

There! I have identified my mojo. Except for one small detail. I will never be able to ride it due to my replaced and revised hip joints. Sad, but I can identify can’t I?

Seriously speaking, I strongly believe that mojo to be genuine, has to be one that is naturally gifted to one and not one that is nurtured by reading books of authors like Dale Carnegie or Napoleon Hill. The ones with the latter kind of nurtured mojo get found out for being superficial and their fans drop off like flies.

My late mother was one such gifted-with-mojo person and I suspect that her children have all inherited that trait.  Thankfully, it has not made any of us swollen headed.

Pravin, you should know whether I am gifted with mojo or not. And whether I go around trying to identify it or develop it.  For the record, you have it in abundant measure.
