Misc Notes Durable Link to this BLOG
Indigenous Education Systems

This week we have added two topics on indigenous educational institutions. One is on Agraharas, a prominent Hindu community education institution like the Gurukulas, Muthas, and Brahmapuris which parted classical education.

The other section is on the Islamic community institution of Madrassahs and Maqtabs.

Of course, y'all do know about the Schools of the Jungle Kamat brought to light....

Don't Drop it on Alabama

I am volunteering today to clean a mile of the highway as part of the Alabama's "Adopt-a-Mile" program. My team, appropriately called "Control-Alt-Debris" will clean a mile of the road today costing us thousands of dollars, so don't even think of dirtying Alabama the Beautiful.

Fresh Blog Feed is now providing the feed of most recently updated entries, and while I have frozen further development of the Blog Portal, waiting for the launch of HumBlog, it was a very small change, and now it is importing the's feed.

Our Biggest Month Yet

April 2003 has been Kamat's Potpourri's busiest month yet. With eight days still left, page views have already exceeded the previous high of 1.7 million.

Tennis Forecast

I have a lot of tennis coming up. I am playing doubles today, singles on Thursday, doubles on Friday, an entire tournament on Saturday and Sunday at the Chace Lake Country Club, and then a mixed-doubles on Sunday afternoon.

So there might not be blog updates for the rest of the week.
