Translation Lost in Durable Link to this BLOG
I had a friend who used to say about the Alabamians -- "These folks don't know that they lost the Civil War".

I want to say the same about the House Republicans. They don't seem to know that they lost an election in a landslide.

None, yes, none of them voted for President Obama's stimulus package.

I say "Give 'em hell Barry!"

No Passport = No Joy

You've probably heard of the guy who misplaced his passport on way to his honeymoon. It wasn't my honeymoon, but I could not find my passport on my way to airport to fly to India. So all those pre-planned activities, which included a a software delivery date, a munji, a couple programs at the Kamat Foundation are now canceled.

But more disappointing is the opportunity to meet friends and relatives. The following is the message I received from a childhood friend:

Quote Begin When will you come to our house?

We have planned a good menu for you:
• Carrot juice / Bhirnda kadi
• Vaingana fodi /
• navalkona fodi
• Tissre ekshimpi
• Vaalibajji Randayee
• Nagli aalle kande aambat
• Sungta kholu
• Khubbe vodo
• Pamplet naked fry

bheggi bheggi bhayrasornu yo ! Quote End

I hope you can understand my disappointment...

Meanwhile in Australian Open.."

Words cannot describe Roger Federer's disappointment.

and Sania Mirza & Mahesh Bhupathi win the mixed-doubles title!
