Mohnish, Thanks once again! Always exciting to hear from you, read from you.

After recent purchase of Stonetrust, can't wait for DalalStreet/Dhandho to go public. Finally I will be able to buy a piece of Pabrai!!

Asawhneyy - If you like being American, why normalize further to an Indian American? And if you do normalize you as Indian American, whats wrong in normalizing further to Gujarati Indian American?
