Happy I-Day

It's Independence Day today, and that means the streets are very quiet and many stores are closed for at least part of the day. And it also happens to be a very sunny day good for walks in the park -- never something you can count on during the monsoon. I've been trying to finish up some work in between reading lots of I-Day stuff (the BBC, the extra-large edition of today's Hindu).

I've also been thinking a lot about the floods in the north, which have affected 45 million people, and killed at least 2,200. If you can afford it, please consider a donation to a worthwhile charity. One that looks good to us is Oxfam.
