The quiz at KQA went off quite well. I think. Will put up the dry questions on when I get a chance.

Was in Hyd for a day yesterday for a customer meeting. Also caught up with the Deepak khandan and , who was kind enough to give me Brando's autobiography, Songs My Mother Taught Me. Was also lucky enough to travel by Air Deccan. Sorry, lucky enough to make it back in one piece after travelling Air Deccan.

Lots of travel on the horizon. Malaysia by mid-Sept, US by Jan, perhaps. Not really looking forward to it.

Tired. Have a 730am meeting tomorrow. I'm getting old. My bones ache. Yawn.

And oh, the peeping peer has quit!

What I learned from the radio this week

It's like, you know, Independence week and all that, on account of Independence day coming up this Sunday. So I learnt all the famous slogans associated with our Independence, like Jai Hind, Vande Mataram, Inquilab Zindabad, Sare Jahan Se Accha and Jai Jawan Jai Kissan. I thought the music for Vande Mataram was particularly good.

I learnt about famous leaders who gave India Independence, like Nehru, Gandhi and Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. I also learnt today that the guy who coined the slogan Jai Jawan Jai Kissan, Lal Bahadur Shastri, gave up all his land to the farmers of India. Lal Bahadur Shastri is also famous for saying "Swaraj is my birthright and I shall have it!".

It's so nice to learn all this in one week. Thank you, Sunaina Lal of Radio City.
