Happy Birthday, India- 60 years old today!
Janam Din ki badhai!
Janam Din Mubarak!
Ravihi janmadinam aacharati!

At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance..... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again.
~ Nehru, August 15, 1947

While partition/liberation was not easy, on this day, centuries of colonial rule came to an end and an amazing place returned to its rightful place on the modern stage.

Ah, yes...

do need to post. Have been feeling very depressed and bereft over demise of the beloved volvo.(or at least its current state of critical condition). And trying VERY hard to consider cars made after 1980... Did I tell you about 1968 Saab that caught my eye?????? (sound of M and other friends having a fit...) Sigh...

Blog housekeeping:
Conditioner- see, here's a post...
Ingrid, I'm working on passing on the kudos...
So Rove is leaving- about f***king time- EXCEPT where is he going?
Have a few words to say about torture soon...

And some general snarky commentary to come...
