Food for thought !!


Why did Leo Tolstoy name his book “War and Peace” and not “Peace and War”, when english usage says the words have to be arranged alphabetically across “and” unless there is a process order depicted (e.g. Viewing and Printing) ?!?!

Forgive my insanity πŸ˜€

  3. ente karthaave….enthokkeya irunnu alochichukootunnathu πŸ˜€

  4. coz u don’t think of peace until after you have some form of conflict. Without conflict there wouldn’t be peace. πŸ™‚

  5. Entammo.. vere onnum alochikkan ille ? πŸ˜€

  6. haven’t read the book, but i think what hari sez makes good sense. πŸ™‚

  7. @Neuro .. interesting thought !! Better than my idle thought πŸ˜‰

    @Hari .. Well what was the situation before the war then ? I guess it boils down to the chicken-egg dilemma posted in your blog πŸ˜‰

    @Karram .. Alexy prompted me to think this way .. shoot him !!!
