Thanks, Karthik! It was a hard morning, that one.

And Leslie, no fans! Just family and some friends. Why weren't you there?

This is Dhanoosh again - the AID-INDIA volunteer from Atlanta. I see that my posts were removed, instead of my questions to Dilip being answered.

Those questions again were:

Our faculty advisor, Associate Professor Govindaraj (whom the AID Press Release wrongly inflated as "Professor" which he will never be) got kicked in his Dilip by the Administration for using a meeting with the Maharashtra CM to push an AID-generated Petition about slum-dwellers' rights. We all spent many hours campaigning and getting signatures for this Petition.

We are all VERY ANGRY at the Mumbai BigShots who are behind the Slum Demolition

Now I find that J.B. D'SOUZA is one of the BigShots who APPROVED the brutal slum demolition.

And DILIP D'SOUZA writes articles supporting his daddy's business ventures like these.

Question 1: WHY didn't you stop your Daddy, Dilip? Didn't care about the slum-dwellers?

Question 2: How can you sleep, Dilip (at night, or during the day because you don't do any work) knowing your guilt in this?

Question 3: Why did you censor my questions, Dilip?

Reminds me of the whiny rich brats who would run home to Momma with their cricket bats when they were given out by the umpire.

Не знаю, что именно он станет анализировать в них, мы же исследовали ТТД и ТТХ зенитовцев с точки зрения среднего игрока чемпионатов «большой пятерки». У таких футболистов показатели должны колебаться между 85 и 100.
Результаты — занимательны. У признанного лучшим в «Зените»-2005 Андрея Аршавина этот показатель — на минимальном искомом уровне (85).
