History -vs- ‘His’story

Today i received a message extolling the virtues of Punjab and as a tribute to its great son, Maharaja Ranjit Singh on his birthday (13th Nov 1780). Maharaja Ranjit Singh is certainly one of the great sons of this Karma Bhoomi called Bharat. The thing that irked me in the message was a reference to how king Porus of Punjab dared to stop Sikander in his world conquest. It was mainly about the use of the words Sikander and Porus, since both are

Hit Refresh

My in-laws are moving to another home this week. This morning i enquired with my mother-in-law about the progress of the packing. She said it is pretty much done since a lot of junk that got piled up over the years has been discarded now. She was happy that the moving process helped them clear unnecessary junk that got piled up over the years.
