Overdue Shouts

Interesting Monstah reminds me that I need to recognize the Browns. So here is a long overdue shout out to those who have befriended and influenced me, lo these many years.

The first, must go to Fathi, who mentored me through the big X. Next must go to Nick whose patience with my brash ass must have even tried his infinite patience and gentility. Sunil, the ordinary guy. You were a first example to breaking my stereotypes. Ramcharandas, you were just too set, you should have stood up to those guys. Hoshi, you are stll the man wherever you go. Remember that I was right about computers and business.

Partha, thanks for the warmth. It was always a pleasure. I hope we meet again. Ranga, you always represent to me the power of youth, brilliance and energy. Rishi, my old pal, what can I say? You are one of the few people whose cool equals and sometimes even surpasses that of my own. Srini, you are and always have been a genius. Your inventions feed my family, thanks for everything. Sreedhar, you really need to leave that French company's software alone. Kumar, whenever I think of you not wearing your turban it brings tears to my eyes, stay strong brother.

Peace to Nanda, Elesh & Joseph, you guys were great. I miss lunches. And although I could go on, my final shout out goes to Peace. Your graceful loss at Rio Mar made this old man feel like he can still play volleyball. I hope the day finds you all well.
