Departures and Fights
Shiva goes back to Bombay after several hours on phone with mysterious girl and Dilip also disappears until Thursday. In his case, he’s going back to Kerala for the first time in eighteen months to celebrate the first anniversary of his grandma’s death. Apparently 250 guests will come and get totally pissed in memoriam. Apparently ten times that many attended the wake last year. Pretty popular grandmother then.
Lennox Lewis beat David Tua [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/low/in_depth/2000/lewis_v_tua/1018938.stm] to remain boxing heavyweight champion. Meanwhile in the other fight, lightweights Gore and Bush are nitpicking over a judge’s decision [http://archives.cnn.com/2000/ALLPOLITICS/stories/11/22/ballot.tm/index.html]. Rematch in order but after all the hubbub has died down, who’s going to remember either of them for anything other than this mess?Posted on November 12, 2000 #India
