The Christmas Gifts

Lizzy and Rizzy were not expecting anything that Christmas.

They had lost both their parents to an accident... 

Imagine their surprise when they opened their door to find Christmas gifts!

"Isn't this our grandmother's rocking-chair?"

"Yes, the one we had to sell off!"

"Look! The same encyclopedia that we have been dreaming!"

Pattachitra- Copy And Misrepresentation #StopPattachitraMisuse

We start with a quiz question- Identify this art.

After taking a look at the above image, the name of which art comes to your mind? 

At first glance, seeing the borders and style, one knows that it is Pattachitra, that is also being spelled as Patachitra. It is an ancient art of Odisha that is linked with the Shree Jagannatha Temple, Puri.

However, the name of Odisha's exquisite Pattachitra art is being copied and presently, different art is being passed off as "Pattachitra/Patachitra". 

Why is the name of West Bengal clubbed with Odisha too when the similar art of their place is called "Pot"/Patua/Potua?

The Cockroach Theory: Respond, Not React

The Cockroach Theory For Self Development* 
"At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady.
She started screaming out of fear.
With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.
Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky.
The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but landed on another lady in the group.
Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.
The waiter rushed forward to their rescue.
In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.
The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.
When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.

Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior?
If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed?
