There Are Indian Elephants, And There Are African Elephants — But You Can Always Spot A Sri Lankan Elephant.As soon as I saw the video I knew immediately, and incontrovertibly, that this HAD to be a Sri Lankan elephant.

They take after their owners. What can I say. You can always spot Sri Lankan men too. Luckily, for women around the World they don’t have trunk growing out of their heads. [You might want to think about that.]

I will, of course, do my best to bring you more examples of Sri Lankan elephants doing what comes naturally to them.

I, as you know, know my elephants and I also know Sri Lankan traits. This is your classic Sri Lankan elephant. It is partly because we give them a lot of mellons.

As I have often stated, I read the U.K. “Daily Mail”, my trusted source of news, online, multiple times a day and have done for ages — having been a ‘Daily Mail‘ subscriber when I lived in the U.K.

When I saw this I knew that YOU would expect me to share it with you. DONE.

I am fairly certain that we are unlikely to see this bikini around Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. However, IF I am wrong, I would not mind a jot. I will just be happy for.

Just so I could be proved wrong, I am thinking about ordering one for myself and wearing it when I go to the beach. I think I will look OK. The only problem. From what I can see they don’t seem to make it in MY SIZE! They all seem too BIG to fit I. Dilemma. Maybe I could get somebody to alter the small size to fit I.

2017 Bikinis You Are Unlikely To See At Lake Winnipesaukee Or Anywhere Else In New Hampshire.

by Anura Guruge


From May 29, 2017  U.K. “Daily Mail“.


I could, of course, be proven wrong, and if so, I will not sulk.

Just a hunch, and it has nothing to do with the damp, cold start to the 2017 Summer we have had so far.

I am NOT sure what to make of these. Are they cute or are they sinister? You could read them either way — modesty or groping!

As ever, I will keep an eye open and let YOU know IF I see any. OK?

Today August 28, 2016, Is “Go Topless Day”/”Free The Nipple” — Not Just In Vancouver, BUT 60 Cities Including New York.

Do what needs to be done.

I have already done my part. I went TOPLESS, in public, for nearly 50 minutes, this morning — though, alas, nobody, but nobody, appreciated what I had on show.

I doubt whether I will see any female toplessness in public, in New Hampshire today, though I plan to be travelling around 100 miles through the State. SMILE. C’est la vie.

Go Topless To “Free The Nipple” In Vancouver, Canada, On Sunday, August 28, 2016 — Though Female Toplesness Is Already LEGAL!

Deanna sent me the link since she knows that I like to ‘cover’ (though that is really not the right word) all things topless. And you have to admit that it is neat when your wife supports your fervor for promoting female toplessness. SMILE.

But, to be fair, as with New Hampshire, I have mixed feeling.

Female topless is PERMITTED in Vancouver — as it is in New Hampshire. So how can you FREE something that is already FREE? That is the reason why I got disillusioned with the New Hampshire “Free the Nipple” cabal.

2016 Bikinis You Are Unlikely To See In New Hampshire — Maybe Best Compromise To “Free The Nipple”.

by Anura Guruge

Well, of course, in “Live Free or Die” New Hampshire, the top part is completely and totally optional. Despite all the clamour that would indicate otherwise New Hampshire, as a State (like so many other States), freely PERMITS female toplessness — without caveats.

But there are indeed strict laws about keeping all parts below the waistline covered to an extent — for both genders.

All that said bikinis are not that prevalent in New Hampshire — and in my experience they have never been in the 30 years I have lived here (15 of that waterfront). And you can’t blame it on the cold. It is in the 90°F (32°C) today. IF I go to any of the Lake Winnipesaukee beaches I am sure the bikini quotient will be under 50% — possibly way under.

Given that the the subtitle of this blog does say “A life of granite in NH” I feel that it is my duty to share such insights with YOU.

Enjoy.

This is SO clever and so to THE POINT.

I love it.

Talk about making a statement.

I would love to see a bunch of women descending on Gilford Beach (NH) in these to see what the reaction would be.

Yes, in some ways it is ‘regressive’ in that females should NOT have to wear such tops just to exercise a basic right that they DO HAVE — in most place — by law.

That they are supporting some of the ‘female topless’ movements makes it even more laudatory. 

The choice of name intrigues me.

‘Tata’ is ‘dad’ in both Yiddish and my native Sinhalese (though it is sometimes spelt ‘tatta’). Then there is the GIANT Indian ‘Tata Group‘ which among other things now own (my beloved) Jaguar brand.


‘Free The Male Speedo’ — Equal Opportunity For Men!

speedo1On Monday of this week we were staying at the “Wonder View Inn” in Bar Harbor, Maine; our room was right above the outdoor pool. While brushing my teeth I could hear, what sounded like a family, with a dog, frolicking about in the pool area — though the bathroom blind was pulled down. Then I hear Teischan (9) exclaim from the bedroom “there is a man swimming in his underwear”. I didn’t have to look. I knew exactly what she was commenting about. The man must have been wearing a ‘speedo’. That a man wearing a speedo would elicit a comment from MY daughter perturbed me — slightly. It is true she had never seen me at a pool or on a beach in a ‘speedo’ — though as an European ‘speedos’ were my de rigueur bathing suit UNTIL the Summer of 1987 — 28 years ago.

So what is the deal here?

Thinking about it made me realize that the issue is no different to the “Free the Female Nipple” conundrum. I did a quick Google. Appears that when it comes to laws you are in the same court as that for female toplessnes. Most places do NOT have any laws specifically banning speedos — in much the same way that at least 48 of the States do not have any explicit laws about female toplessness. Yes, you can find a few reports that men have been cited for wearing speedos — usually under the all encompassing ‘disturbing the peace’ law.

Indecency laws only require the genitals to be covered and a speedo does that.

Furthermore, as was the case in Bar Harbor, foreigners wearing speedos, as far as I know, are never told off or cited. And from 1985 to 1987 I wore speedos in the U.S., albeit mainly around hotel swimming pools or beaches in Tampa and Oahu, without ever having anybody say anything about it.

Then we have swim/dive teams and competitions. All the men, including those from the U.S., wear speedos. So IF there is a swim meet taking place in a U.S. pool the men will wear speedos but speedos are not deemed acceptable for recreation. What gives?

And now the supreme irony. Women can wear the skimpiest bikinis and that is acceptable while men can’t wear speedos.

Why the double standard?

In Europe female toplnessness and men in speedos (quite literally) go hand-in-hand.

Yes, it does have to do with a stubborn streak of puritanicalness that still permeates U.S. society. It is all about decency and modesty. I understand and as I said this is an issue that I confronted, personally, 28 years ago.

It must have been May or July 1987. I, newly married, went to a family cookout in Massachusetts. They had a pool and I wore a speedo — since that was all I had. My (then) wife didn’t say anything and she had seen me in speedos. Nobody said anything to me about my speedo all day. They used to kind of like me those days. I wore the speedo, with nothing else, as was my then wont, most of the day. I was ultrafit those days — fasting 3 times a week, running 7.5 miles most days and doing 100 sit-ups and 100 push-up a day. So I didn’t have anything really to hide or cover up. But on the way home I was informed that wearing speedos was not the ‘American way’ and that I needed to get some ‘proper’ U.S. swim trunks. I never gave it much thought — 28 years ago. But now it has got me thinking. Ironically I am the same weight now as I was 28 years ago. But I am now 62 and though I still run my total exercise regime is 1/8 of what it used to be.

As with female toplessness I believe that there should be certain, self-imposed standards, as to whether one should wear a speedo or not. I think the 25 BMI mark should be a good demarcation point. I still make the 25 BMI but I am not sure whether I should subject innocent folks to even more of my body than they are now subjected to given that I am, during the Summer, habitually topless — and, at a minimum, do my 40 – 45 minute run, 6 days a week, topless.

But something for all U.S. men to think about.

What is the deal with wearing speedos? In the same way that we want to free the female nipple we should also strive to free the male speedo. They really do go hand-in-hand.
