Happy 60th Anniversary India!

Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of India's independence from Britain. I spent much of the day (as well as the evening before) hanging out with some friends in Delhi. Pankaj and his family were preparing for a huge pool side party complete with drinks (mainly Kingfisher beer & Indian whiskey) as well as an enormous spread of Indian food delicacies that were superior. Thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with the extended family and being continuously asked whether I was a diplomat (because of my use/pronunciation of the Hindi language). Most of the day, the skyline was filled with thousands of kites, which provided a keen backdrop to this ancient metropolis. Nonetheless, it was quite a hoot to participate in the festivities.
