Good Morning Sir, its being an accolade to have your presence ...You forget to mention your grip on diet food :)
I was busy sulking that you hadn't said 'Hi', till it occurred to me that I was the newly joining member and should have greeted an old friend.

Great to see you here. When did you join?

I am in a mood for battle, just having finished an enfuriating conversation - two, actually - on PDF. Really, this is a healthier place, at first blush.

You are right. But just as an exception, to cheer myself up, I made a jam omelette for breakfast. Bugger the diet! (well, for this morning, anyway; maybe lunch as well, lunch being roti, arhar dal and paneer makhanwala - not very diety :$*:)

No battles, not here. I've some resolutions for myself;

  • I shall try to add to the knowledge that others have;
  • I shall try to add to my own knowledge;
  • If somebody is wrong, or is provocative, I will listen politely, inform them I think that there might be a difference in views, and ignore the statement thenceforth;
  • If somebody is right, I will acknowledge his contribution, absorb the information, and continue;
  • I shall not lose my temper;
  • I shall ignore others who lose their tempers.

Now you're making me hungry again. I think I will make hummus for dinner. It's my favourite food. Only trouble is finding pita bread, but @khafee told me to try brown bread instead.

Oh boy, this is making me really hungry!

BTW, not to embarrass you, but it's so nice to find a place where all many of the nice people have already turned up.

LOL. I hope to start baking my own bread soon. Maybe by December/ January. But let the professional chef join. I've just finished threatening jbgt90 with assault if he doesn't join; he's promised to. He says he knows 250 recipes.

After he - and hellfire, if I can persuade him - have joined, I am going to put a series of questions to the two of them, to uncover a lot of unknown or unnoticed information about Indian defence (no deep dark secrets; we don't know any). Because of their slightly constrictive background and history, they don't open up, and we rest of us lose tremendously. He/they're not getting away this time.

Let me explain rather more carefully: I intend to make them come out with their own accounts of what is going on within the Indian Armed forces - no deadly, James Bond-worthy secrets, just the day-to-day information that is well known and understood, but is not generally public, and that found only tantalising exposure within PDF. jbgt90 has promised to open up, SUBJECT to certain limits being maintained, and that is understandable. I am certain that if hellfire comes on board, he will make the same conditions.

All my batchmates are six or seven years out of service, leading retired lives and worrying about their weight or their handicap, depending on if they're having a good day or a bad day. Their batchmates are still at field grades, and have very clear and definite information about the why's and wherefore's. Much of the story behind the Arjun or the Tejas is known to all of us; these chaps have a lot of supplementary information, which makes for a fuller, more plausible picture.

Again, there are dark spots that must remain dark.

Hello everyone.

I have created this thread for a very specific reason, a place where everyone can indulge in light hearted conversations.

Strictly, no serious stuff, for that I will create another thread, where off topic social, political or defense related issues can be discussed.


Enjoy your stay \~/\~/
