Hi all ! Brace yourselves for one long ride….Twinny in celebratory mood… And conveniently in city that loves to party… Mads and Biraj’s favourite city …BOSTON!
Right from 1773!
American colonists dressed up as native Indians , boarded 3 ships and gaily tipped 342 crates of tea into the Boston harbour…
Tea was lost
But lost more was the imperial British temper!!!
Instantly Punishing Acts passed… Catapulting
a chain of events leading straight to the American WAR of independence in 1776!
Commemorated by artistic, mostly bronze statues of Boston greats… In Boston commons… In Newbury street …..you don’t have to take a specially guided Boston Duck tour… To see them…They are all over!!
Boston could easily be called City of Statues !!
The OLDEST PARK , the OLDEST UNDERGROUND SUBWAY SYSTEM….
.. Of the nation… Both in Boston!
“Old ” and historical this city maybe ..but it sure is modern and tuned into the ‘now’… Boston was the FIRST city in the US to LEGALISE GAY or SAME SEX MARRIAGES in 2003..! Since June 26 th 2015 …all 50 states of the Union decided to follow suit … 👏🏼👏🏼!
Berklee College of Music….
Alumni members of Harvard include Bill Gates,
Barack and Michelle Obama and Mike Zuckerberg …
Need I say more ??!
Here are pictures of the amazing MIT campus( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and 2 alumni members… Our very own ex Governor ,Reserve Bank of India…. Raghuram Rajan and
Shiva ayyadurai … Inventor of Email!
Email been around since 1982……we in second Mbbs then….
So long long ago…!
The Boston symphony hall is where Broadway shows are often created and practised before being staged in newyork
Twinny very keen to know about OPERA ..This complete and compelling art form joins poetry drama music..with emotion ….On subjects like forbidden love …ah so exciting …!
To sing opera requires gruelling hours to first study the script ( libretto) , set it to a musical score and train the voice to sing loud and long …with emotion… Singing could be in Italian German russian or french ..
Here’s the Boston symphony hall .. One of the worlds best three in acoustics ….
Remember dr Raj Rao ?. 2 years our senior.. Well ….here’s a video clip of his daughter Saloni … Singing opera… Twinny taken aback by the maturity in her voice… someday this 17 year old will be one with the likes of the most famous opera singers the world has ever produced …. Maria Callas
And Luciano Pavarotti ..
Americans love their basements !!! In an American home a basement very handy and Quite a lived – in space ….In the basement of his very posh town house … Raj’s son Cameron serenaded us on his
saxophone .. Am posting this piece with wishes galore for the entire gs 80 batch …on this our first anniversary …
Here’s to all of us…!!!
And That’s not all..!
Jews celebrate longevity of their relationships by breaking a glass !
Well … Once a glass is broken it can never get back to its original form .. How can it??
So also once this glass is broken ( the one that Twinny is going to stomp on … Er just now …)
The group can never hope to be seperate entities or revert to their singular selves ever again !!!
