hehehhe, if critics have statues then what he/she writes/ critics about must be true. This is kinda' paradox.

Very interesting photo, Baejaar. Reminded of the quote at the start of Mark Waugh's biography:
~~~~~
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
—President Theodore Roosevelt, Sorbonne, 1910

Thanks PV

GP, No it isnt. If critics have statue then the criticism is true rather than the works about which they are commenting

Shastri
Nice speech alright. I wish there were more such charismatic leader these days. Nope the current president doesnt even come close.

Thanks a lot for dropping by. I have been stuck in my work and so couldnt visit your site for quite sometime. I guess I need to catch up quite a lot.
