I may behave quite strange at times.
You might think maybe I’m losing it.
So, I thought I’ll explain my point of view
with some humor and some wit.
Remember those proverbs we learnt in school? I mean, they taught us and we believed them as Gospel. In our defense, we were just a bunch of impressionable young kids back then, our hair in pigtails tied up in blue ribbons.
I’ve been thinking – about proverbs mind you, not the pigtails – and I strongly feel we may just have been misled on many of them. What took me so long to come to this conclusion you may ask.
So now you get a rough-ish idea why Fisher, Schaffer, Briggs and Co. hold such an important place in my heart.

As I was saying, thanks to the above names, we got our first washing machine when my parents shifted to their own home in Ambalpady.
Alva J Fisher, Jacob Christian Schaffer, Nathaniel Briggs.
Do you know them? Well I do. Not personally. I mean, we’re not exactly on hello/hi terms or such like. We couldn’t possibly be, them belonging to some centuries ago and already having passed on to the life after and all that.
When I say I know them, I just mean that I came across their names on Wikipedia, when I dropped by to check out who invented the washing machine. These names popped up among others. While I bit my tongue trying to pronounce some of them, I shall be forever grateful to these guys.
Actor, Hero or Superstar,
How I wonder what you are!
Glitter, glamour, money and fame.
It looks like that to us from far!
