    Hi Saras,

    How can you forget Malspie became member of IL.
    How can you forget Malspie was the runner up for the best post last month.
    How can you forget Malspie becomes Junior I'Lite, Senior I'Lite, Silver I'Lite, Gold I'Lite and Local Champion.
    Joking !!! Do not get upset.

    How can you forget Indusladies in Tamil Times newspaper in Mumbai.
    How can you forget Indusladies started Blog section.
    How can you forget Indusladies started Travel forum
    How can you forget Indusladies has 10,000 + members in her kitty.
    This is reality. Isn't it.. Indusladies is started by an Indian and it connects people from all over the world.


    More notes to make India proud...

    Gossips on Abhi and Aish's Marriage.. few aces and traces who were left out of the invitation.
    Amitabh acts in a wonderful movie called Cheeni Kum and takes bollywood to a different level other than the old concept of brothers getting separated in childhood - one becomes a goon and the other a police office.
    (always)
    Movie like Chak De lifted the sleeping Sports sector of India to a higher level.
    Movie like Taare Zammeen Par made us sit up and think
    A plain jane movie Jab We Met becomes a hit while Saawariya which released with great pomp bites the dust.

    Kiran Bedi resigns and does not accept the portfolio which the Government decides for her at the wee end of her career. This is called woman of substance.

    Highly modified subarban trains hit the tracks this year in Mumbai.

    Have fun Saras, alls in fun...

    Hi Mals,

    I did not forget Malspie....after all like a "poonch"(tail):queen, I too have been following her...first into the IL family. then took 2 breaks and back again, slowly limping towards the milestones that she has already achieved.


    But to mention about IL in 2007, I think, we should have a seperate thread. There must have been more number of registered members this yr than the previous yr. Then the number of threads, number of posts, number of moderators......What do u say!!!!!

    Thanx for the interesting note....

    Bye and thanx for stepping in...
