There is teaching. There is learning. Then there is the insignificant.
While I did not take them too seriously at first, I am beginning to learn that she knew well what she was saying. And no learner can not love libraries. Visited the Los Angeles Central Library today. The inscription on its facade makes for a thought-provoking entrance:
"Books alone are liberal and free. They give to all who ask. They emancipate all who serve them faithfully."
The library is a fantastic facility (here is its Wikipedia page) in the heart of Downtown LA, one of the better business districts in the country from my experience. I was loving the vibe as I entered, listening to Ishq Ada Hai from Ada, which only added to the mystique. Stopped at the Library Store, and fell in love with this beautiful tie (the online store page seems to assume the visitor is a woman, what with the 'man in your life' -- what's up with that?). And then I stopped for a couple of postcards on the way out and was pleasantly surprised to see this:
Per the cashier, they had several others that sold fast, which is interesting. Also interesting is that this postcard was printed in the E.U., by an organization named Bizarr with a Munich, Germany address. How cool is that? Anyone seen Do Anjaane?
