swanima, liked u'r lists too- have seen and read all of them...
and thanx for u'r comment on my dabbles site...

bharath! yes indeed there is the book- and its difficult to put it down- except i had read it with the info that it was based on a true story and later heard that it was not- and was not sure if i was dissappointed or relieved...

i see these tags as a good filler when I want to blog but dont have anything to say- also am curious abt other's tags :-)

thanx sines!
