Update from Kamats Durable Link to this BLOG
Already lots of new stuff in year 2006.

Amma's long forgotten humor essay in Kannada, "Kallara Kalla" (The Thief Among the Thieves) in being included in a 10th grade text book in the State of Maharashtra. She said (via telephone) "such a thing hasn't happened in my own state"! I reminded her how the Maharashtrians have recognized and honored S.L. Bhyrappa much more than the people from Karnataka.

Talking about Bhyrappa, a reader of this blog (Mr. Venkatesha Murthy of California, who in fact, took to much trouble to procure it, and warmed my heart) after reading my entry "Whom Did Draupadi Love?" sent me a copy of "Parva", which I have been enjoying very much. More about Parva in a separate entry...

I have updated the Indian Festival Calendar for Year 2006.

Newsletter for "Friends of Kamat" went out. You can join the Yahoo Group here.

I am excited about my forthcoming trip to India, and currently accepting invitation to play tennis in Bangalore ;-- )

Talking about Tennis, by popular request, I am fielding a USTA Men's Tennis Team in Birmingham.

Learnt that it is much easier to make money with Google stock than with Google AdSense.

All this in just six days?!
