An ancient Greek story
I hope you are all well. How was the weekend? Mine was good, I read through some of the old text books of my little sister. While reading, I came across an interesting ancient Greek story so thought to share it with you all. Since it's learning English blogs so I will write it in my own words except for few things. I have always liked this story and I expect you will like it, too. It begins like this.
Once there lived a monster who asked people a question. If they did not answer correctly, it killed them (terrifying, isn't it?). The question was a riddle and it was:
It has four legs in the morning.
It has two legs in the afternoon.
It has three legs in the evening.
What is it?
It was so hard to answer and many people lost their lives in the hands of the killing monster. But once, a man succeeded in guessing the correct answer. It is a man. When a man is a baby (the morning of his life), he crawls on his legs and feet. When he is fully grown, he walks on his feet.When he is old, he walks with a stick, so he has three legs.
I have some more riddles to share.
It has hands but no fingers. What is it?
It has an eye but cannot see. What is it?
It has teeth but cannot eat. Can you guess the answer?
Have a cuppa C('_'') ?
Okay, I'm putting the answers in the end but to think of the answers is a must.
Until then I should talk to everyone else.
Manoj, thank you so much for the information! I have saved it all and of course, why not? It would be my pleasure to visit India. I was very young when I had first visited India and it was a wonderful time there. I still remember Chopati beach and Juhu Chopati and those delicious pani puri and dosa, and the yummy push up ice-cream. I also invite you to visit Pakistan:) .
Tomo, thank you that you found yoga poses useful! Apart from standing poses, there are also sitting and lying poses, and there are many types of breathing in yoga, facial exercises, and so much more. As for the flexibility, it is said that if you start exercise with a little warm up it helps you attain that flexibility. There's another useful tip for you, I have experimented it on myself, too. If you practice yoga in the evening, your body will be more flexible to do those tough bending and twisting better.
Mehjabeen, I hope you are well. As for your question, I'm afraid, I would say 'no'. Because there are some techniques to do yoga poses and if you try them on your own, it is likely that you can get yourself injured.
Ana and Anita, thank you so much for your concerns! This really touches my heart that we have never met with each other, but we care about each other desipte living miles apart.
Ana, I have just read your post and thank you that you still remember the link I had shared with you all in June, kisses to you:)
To everyone out there, my blogmates, all those kind commentators, dear teachers and everyone. God bless you all! l---(0_0)---l
