Gems (almost always overheard)

(over)Heard on the train to Delhi from a woman reading an article on barack Obama:

"bahut honest admi lagta hain..bilkul fraud nahin..apna abdul kalam jaisa"

BTW, here's a fantastic stylistic analysis of Obama's victory speech:

Prasanth I like the idea of talking about things overheard.

I often spend lots of time thinking about context and the disconnect between the moment of hearing and thinking about the meaning.

I wanted to stop by and say thanks for your kind words of support at my spot.

I appreciate it very much.

I will be looking in here still and in time will be back on the blog again, I think.

For now, keep writing and I will keep reading.

Peace brother!
