Adding News to Kamat's Potpourri

I know, somewhere I've said, "There's no stocks, no weather, no news on", and so far I have refrained from digressing from our core theme. But the "ad-infestation" (for example, just now I noticed that Sulekha news is featuring 15 advertisements, including animations and popups) of other India related news sites has made me reconsider.

Hopefully, I will have sometime this month to crank up a news aggregator. I also want to add some "news from the trenches" -- you know, authentic news that will not get press otherwise.

Alabama State Tennis Championships

There's some new hardware in Kamat household. Kimbo's team won the Alabama State Tennis Championship at the USTA 3.5 Level.

The next stop is Charleston, South Carolina for the Divisional Championships.

BTW, I had a hard time photographing the transparent glass trophy. Neither black nor white backgrounds work and the transparency takes the attention away. The above photograph was taken with diffused sunlight and flash used together after keeping the plaque on a ping-pong table.

Biography of Poet Bilhana

Remember the amusing story Romancing the Teacher, where the student was told the tutor has an infectious disease and the teacher was told that the student is blind?!

Amma has the Biography of Bohemian Poet Bilhana, who travelled the whole length of India in the 11th century seeking beauty and knowledge.
