Indie Pendence

A very Happy Independence Day to all Indian junta! (Also to all my friends in Congo and South Korea, who share their Independence / Liberation days with us)

While we're all cursing our fate and fuming at the fact that the National Holiday that falls on a Sunday this year, I thought I'd quote somethings I learnt in Class 9 civics class. First, I present you with the Preamble on the Indian Constitution. This is not just any paragraph. It defines the dream that our ancestors gave up their lives for, the vision that they sacrificed everything for.

As you can notice from the textual silence(wow, neat phrase!), I've been trifle busy. Most of this busy has been fun, and some has been ironic. Ironic because I'm annotating corpus(they hire manual labour to do this stuff) on a Saturday Night. Sigh. I don't think it can get more sad.

Anyway, allow me to throw a few links by your way:
