You're story reminds me of another told by a character on an American
television drama called "West Wing":

    "This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The
walls are so steep he can't get out.
    A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help
me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole
and moves on.
    Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Father, I'm down
in this hole can you help me out?' The priest writes out a prayer,
throws it down in the hole and moves on
    Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?'
And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now
we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here
before and I know the way out.'"

Anish sounds like that sort of friend that will jump down into that
hole and lead you out, which is a good friend indeed.

We seldom take enough time to acknowledge the mutual support we
provide to each other as a community, I'm glad Ajay has taken the time
to tell his story.


It has been a great pleasure to work with you on improving the
i18n/L10n of Dextrose, and I know your studies will command all of
your attention; however, I will not say "good bye", but only "au
revoir" and best of luck in your new endeavour.
