Ice Cream Sundae

Google has, for sometime, been celebrating various occasions by designing suitable modifications of its standard logo. Sometimes these new logos are global but many times they are for local audiences. Here is the official collection of these logos. To give some colour to the blog we flick first twenty of them. Since not all of them are global you might be seeing many of them for the first time.

And to top all, err bottom it all, here is today's logo:
It is the celebration of 119th anniversary of first recorded ice cream sundae. Two decorated scoops of ice cream serving as the double o of Google.
Now the purpose of life is to prepare for the hereafter. In this scheme the place of many of the anniversaries is not there. An additional observation can be made about today's choice. Most of the economics courses begin with the statement that as time passes man achieves higher and higher levels of satisfaction. Now this is not true but nearly most of us believe it to be true. Isn't it coming from the western economists who know better?
As a result of these compounded fallacies man has been thrown into indulgence with this world. 120 years ago man was less satisfied but more satisfied 119 years ago because ice cream sundae had arrived. And you shall be even more satisfied if you discover more things to cater to your palate.
In case it looks like a betrayal of a well begun theme then rest assured that you can still eat your ice cream sundae provided you take it as a blessing of your Lord and thank Him for that.
