Dear readers,
After a frustrating few days with no server, my infernal machine is now
working. After wading through 800+ messages, I saw an expressed interest
in Kerala. Having spent last Xmas there and also teaching about it to
undergrads I thought you might find this interesting. I apologise for the
lateness of it all.
