Its beauty, its endless variety, and its intoxicating perfume have earned it the title "Queen of Flowering Plants", to the point that a splendid garden with no roses in it is scarcely conceivable.

"In judging myself I shall try to be as harsh as truth, as I want others also to be." - Gandhi "I am not pleading for India to practice nonviolence because it is weak. I want her to practice nonviolence being conscious of her strength and power." - Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or Mahatma Gandhi as he is more popularly known, was called "Mahatma," or "Great Soul" not only because of his extraordinary achievements as leader of the Indian independence movement, but also because of his beliefs, practices, and principles that demonstrated to the world the depths that one's soul could have. Widely considered the father of India, the preeminent leader of the Indian struggle against British imperialism, and one of the most influential minds of the 20th century, Gandhi emerged to become one of the greatest advocates of peace and nonviolent resistance that the world has known. By leading a life of austerity and integrity, Gandhi became one of those rare leaders who preached through his own practices, motivating millions of people - rich and poor, men and women, adults and children, Hindus, Muslims, and Christians - to follow his principles of freedom and peace. Gandhi saw with his own eyes the negative impact of British colonialism on the Indian economy, culture, and identity, as did millions of other Indians. What made Gandhi unique was the fact that he also saw the enormously negative impact the diversity of the Indian population had on the struggle for Indian independence; divisions were rife between Hindus, Muslims, and dozens of other faiths, and the population was divided into hundreds of different ethnic groups, each with its own traditions and culture, and each unwilling to unite with other groups for the common cause of a free India. The caste system in India, as a long-standing social stratification system that placed severe and often permanent social restrictions on individuals according to which social classes they were born into, also played a large role in dividing Indian society. Gandhi recognized that these divisions were what weakened India's chances to effectively oppose British imperialism and establish independence. As nationalism and independence movements began forming and spreading in the mid and late 1800s, Gandhi was able to unite these various ethnic groups, religious groups, and social groups and lead a unified Indian independence movement. The impact that Gandhi made was lasting, and his legacy can still be seen today. Gandhi was not a theorist or scholar in the traditional sense, and never professed to be one; he prided himself on instead being a reformer and a true activist, for he famously stated that "I am not built for academic writings...Action is my domain." And yet, the action that Gandhi spoke of was not the violent and terror-invoking action that many other resistance movements took elsewhere in the world; Gandhi was guided by strict values, principles, and ideas of peace and nonviolence that remained remarkably enduring throughout his life.

(1912) The A.B.C., that semi-elected, semi-nominated body of a few score persons, controls the Planet. Transportation is Civilisation, our motto runs. Theoretically we do what we please, so long as we do not interfere with the traffic and all it implies. Practically, the A.B.C. confirms or annuls all international arrangements, and, to judge from its last report, finds our tolerant, humorous, lazy little Planet only too ready to shift the whole burden of public administration on its shoulders. 'With the Night Mail[1].' [1] Actions and Reactions. Isn't it almost time that our Planet took some interest in the proceedings of the Aerial Board of Control? One knows that easy communications nowadays, and lack of privacy in the past, have killed all curiosity among mankind, but as the Board's Official Reporter I am bound to tell my tale. At 9.30 A.M., August 26, A.D. 2065, the Board, sitting in London, was informed by De Forest that the District of Northern Illinois had riotously cut itself out of all systems and would remain disconnected till the Board should take over and administer it direct. Every Northern Illinois freight and passenger tower was, he reported, out of action; all District main, local, and guiding lights had been extinguished; all General Communications were dumb, and through traffic had been diverted. No reason had been given, but he gathered unofficially from the Mayor of Chicago that the District complained of 'crowd-making and invasion of privacy.' As a matter of fact, it is of no importance whether Northern Illinois stay in or out of planetary circuit; as a matter of policy, any complaint of invasion of privacy needs immediate investigation, lest worse follow."


A Gentleman's Guide To Choking The Chicken

Choking one's chicken is something that, until now, has been something that men have had to learn on their own. This is not something that anyone ever teaches you. It's not shaving or how to ride a bike. Even when sex education comes up, masturbation is always left out. Additionally, alas, this is a subject that men, young and old alike, really hate discussing. We men often make fun of each other and use jerking off as an insult to our peers. There is never a frank discussion and there is certainly no comparing notes on what does and does work and what is and is not fun.I started writing about sex and sexual topics, like this, some years back. I wanted to put my experiences out there, in a serious discussion and "how to" format. The topics that I have written about, are sadly the ones that are always left out of sex ed presentation, and even more sadly they are the ones that everyone seems to want to know about. This is my latest attempt at bringing light into the darkness and instructing people how to have better, more enjoyable sex in a more confident manner. It is, as always, my sincere hope that you find this manual useful and helpful and that you experience a richer, more satisfying sex life because of it.
