    My God! You are a very good girl, not to mention talented! Your mom and MIL should be proud of you. :thumbsup: I received my box of goodies, parceled all the way from India, just today. My MIL knows me too well. She is a sweet woman. : )

    Thank you :) Team work pays off.
    Last year when I was alone did nothing. :tongueclosed:
    You can't do it alone Gauri. You need motivating people around you for such tasks!

    Enjoy the delicacies sent by MIL and a happy Diwali to you. :grinning::grinning:

    Maybe. I just thought the criticisms were interesting, that there are now two versions of the story. A little something more for the fans to enjoy and rejoice I guess! :wink1:

    :thumbsup:

    On "mankind vs humankind": I usually understand the usage of "mankind" as a general reference to the civilization as a whole, not specifically the male gender. "Humanity" is a good alternative. I use it often but mostly because it sounds cooler to me, just a matter of preferences. We do use "man" to address other person/people in casual conversations, isn't? Also "guys", "dudes" etc. Gender-neutral and inclusive much, not? Sometimes I don't get the feminists arguments. "Mankind" works for me! :grazy:
