    Yes, India won the war only to be baffled by the exodus that followed (now we scream illegal immigration!). But a second thought, the osmosis was natural.

    From morning, only one thing i have been thinking..what’s on Dec 16..then it struck me..there was a movie by that name about 2 years ago…now it hit me … why that movie was made 🙂 bad bad .. no sense of history but cant help when the only association one has with the bangladesh war is a movie called BORDER 😉Hey soumyadip..thx for visiting..we could start a therapy section in TCP? And the therapy could be “more comics” huh? Comicaholics anonymous – I like that 🙂Stay tuned..thanks to some fantastic contributors who are as unknown to me as I am to them, there’s more to come.

    Reminds me of the saying… “A war does not determine who is right. It determines who is left!”

    I’m not sure who came up with the idea of war to end disputes. But whoever it was, it was a bad idea!
