  • A friend sent me a wonderful greeting this morning.
    The picture depicted an elegant peacock sitting on a cake, its resplendent feathers trailing down one side of the cake. I love electric colours and peacock blue is one of my favourite colours.
    The Peacock is the national bird of India but I remember one of my friends in school thought that the ubiquitous crow was the national bird, during a quiz contest. We all laughed heartily at that and the poor girl started crying.
    Before the image it says GOOD and a little below it is NING
    The Hindi word for peacock is MOR, pronounced 'more' with a slight emphasis on the R.
    So then we naturally read it as GOOD MOR NING.
    Quite clever isn't it?
    Good morning to you and all Cowbirders.
