Hi to all my friends and visitors to my Homepages, after August 2003, due to reasons beyond my control, it is unfortunate that I have to ask you all to send only e-mail messages to the following address email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org until the time I remove this Notice, or I change the date to a deadline.
Some of you would know that I once enjoyed the employment of an IT Mutinational, but that has changed mainly because of the changes in the market demands, and retrenchment fashions, not being a permanent member of the so called elite IT companies, one does not get the benefits of being laid off, and its 'sudden death' as the extended time of any game like football or hockey goes. My daughter Joanne having decided to go in for a Degree in Fashion Design, and after scouting around the FD Institutions in Bangalore, found many so over priced and rip-off where fees were concerned. Earlier, Wigin & Leigh _ Femina _Fashion.TV, had floated an All-India Fashion Design Scholarship competition a few months back, and I do have to bragg that my Joanne won the competition. However, W&L came out with the results too late as we already committed to Joanne joining ALT Training College (Apparel & Leather Technics) for a Fashion Degree, so we could not accept the scholarship offered by W&L. Fortunately or unfortuantely, ALT refused to refund the 30 thousand rupees fees paid to them, so we had to give up the scholarship for this year. Verbally, W&L wants Joanne to join them in the second year, as they are really impressed by her presentation at the competition. To encourage Joanne, I have started getting hold of various books related to her course and as a Reference Libary build-up, and some of these books are quite old (1949!), but that is what I could afford, as many of them I purchased at the book sales, and others have donated to the kitty. I have listed below a collection of books that Joanne presently has in her library, and also a list of books available in Bangalore that could be useful for her future. Incase you would like to 'help' further build up her library, you are most welcome to do so, and thanks for the thought, and if you do have any related books that you are not using, would appreciate receiving the same for the library.
I havent updated the Bangalorewalla page from 1999, but have added two sister sites on KGF and McCluskieganj, which I think you will find very interesting. http://www.geocities.com/ronnie.johnson/mccluskieganj.html and http://www.geocities.com/kolargoldfield . I do have some material collected during the years after 1999, and will have to scan them and make up the pages for the Bangalore page.
Thanks once again for the wishes, and hope to hear from you all again,

Thought for the Day:" Blessed are you poor, For yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, For you shall be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, For you shall laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, And when they exclude you, And revile you, and cast out your name as evil, For the Son of Man's sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in heaven, Fon in the manner their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you who are rich, For you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are full, For you shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, For you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you when all men speak well of you, For so did they fathers to the false prophets." Holy Bible: Luke 6:20-26
