Nice thought. Ill probably read through the transcript later. One thing though is that all the friends and collegues of APJ describe him as an eternal optimist, sometimes every impractically so. But its nice to have one nevertheless.

Glad we have him as The President.

With you Paran.

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
