A new year comes up….

Sorry folks , I can’t say happy with the toll of the Tsunami strike rising in India, to cross 15,000 people mainly in Tamil Nadu (see the XL Bangalore blog for more details if you want to help!) and totally over 100,000 and rising…

Best wishes to all of you to fulfill your dreams…
And a moment of silence for people who lost theirs…
