#DYK that "Fort Assiniboine was an old fort and #military reservation named for a tribe of #Indians whose name signifies 'stone boilers.'" And, in 1896, Lt. John Joseph Pershing, later, World War 1 Supreme Commander, was stationed there. #WorldWar1#WW1#WBW#MtHist
#Throwback to the late 90s for #ChildrensDay - a simpler time with abundant cuddles, prolonged story time and playing dress-up.
About Picture 1 - I belonged to the green house in school and was readying myself for a school dance - replete with an emerald green "ghagra choli" and oodles of silver junk jewellery.
The second picture is one of my brother and me gearing up to celebrate Raksha Bandhan. My mum would dress us up in pastel coloured clothing - I would generally wear a Lucknowi outfit and my brother would don a traditional dhoti-kurta. My brother, Arnav, possessed the most beautiful curls and I had amazingly voluminous hair, with undulating waves created by my mum tying plaits for me every single day. My mom would painstakingly search for Pokémon rakhis for Arnav and I'd always receive the most riveting books on Raksha Bandhan.
As I reminisce while writing this, it strikes me how I've been struggling while adulting - I fear every day that I may not ever achieve self-actualization or that I may never attain my plethora of goals. My fears as a child were so inconsequential - a dismal grade or a remark in my diary were monumental enough to make me burst into tears. How times change!
At the moment I have this obsession for Native American Indians - I am so obsessed about their lifestyle, their beliefs in spirits and their admiration for animals!! Their colourful dancing and simple lifestyle. I am sure I was a native American in a former life 😁🌸 but here, I am amazonwoman.
