TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 28 Feb 2017

Today’s thought is by Ovid. He was Roman Poet who lived in the period of Augustus and his actual name was Publius Ovidius Naso. He was ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Ovid talks more about his own life than most other Roman poets.

I really love ebonite as the material for the pen and this white blue swirl is something amazing. You have to hold in the hand to actually see and feel the beauty of the material.

The lovely ink in use is KWZ IG Turquoise Ink  and writes super wet and has an amazing shading properties on Fabriano Ego Paper. I really love the paper and in my opinion is far better than the Rhodia 80 Gsm dot pad.

Tuesday Thoughts – 18 October 2016

After a brief hiatus of an approx one month, I am back with Tuesday Thoughts.

 

And today’s thought comes from the pioneer of economics and political science in India, one of the most influential teachers of India, Chanakya. There is a Diplomatic enclave in Delhi which is named after Chanakya and is calledChanakyapuri and is one of the most prime and posh destinations of India. Chanakya was the teacher, philosopher, advisor to king Chandragupta and Bindusara. He played an important role in the expansion of Mauryan Empire in India.
