And the song he sings.

And the perverted, weirdly funny skeleton he is.

"...If you simplify your English, you are freed from the worst follies of orthodoxy. You cannot speak any of the necessary dialects, and when you make a stupid remark its stupidity will be obvious, even to yourself. Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. One cannot change this all in a moment, but one can at least change one's own habits, and from time to time one can even, if one jeers loudly enough, send some worn-out and useless phrase -- some jackboot, Achilles' heel, hotbed, melting pot, acid test, veritable inferno, or other lump of verbal refuse -- into the dustbin, where it belongs."

--"Politics and the English Language", George Orwell, 1946.

"Om namo narayanayah".
In India, we had this chanting device, which could chant 10 different things.
"Om namo narayanayah".
This was one of them. It kept chanting over and over again.
In between the whistles of a cooker.
"Om namo narayanayah".
When the TV is muted for a phone call.
"Om namo narayanayah".
The sound keeps lingering in the background, for you to tune in.When I close the bathroom door, the sound pervades through.
"Om namo narayanayah".

I close the door to the bathroom here and sit down, and that distant sound play in my ear.
"Om namo narayanayah".
