  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, thanks so much! I guess this makes me slightly famous on the Indian sub-continent?! :-) Just kidding of course, I was very honoured that they even considered the photo much less actually used it.
  • Manu Praba 9mo

    Angelo Minichiello Indian sub-continent means ?
  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, sorry, that is an old way of saying South Asia. Basically geographically it is the area bordered on the North by the mountain ranges of Nepal, to the East by the Arkan mountain range and the Hindu Kush in the west. Essentially all the land that lies on the tectonic plate that is trying to run into the Asian continent and is made up of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and not least, your country Sri Lanka. I was only referring to geography, not nationalities. The book company that bought the picture is Penguin books India, and they have the rights to use the picture in South Asian versions of the book.

    oh.. thanks for the nice detailed description.
  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, no problem, I guess my education wasn't wasted after all! :-)
  • Manu Praba 9mo

    Angelo Minichiello you are so educated than this Angelo I know for sure.. you might be a bookworm
  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, thank you. Besides music I must admit that books and reading is my other 'vice'! :-)
  • Manu Praba 9mo

    oh you have vices ? I thought you are only wise ;)
  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, I prefer to think of myself as choosing my 'vices' wisely! :-)
  • Manu Praba 9mo

    oh what a smart saying.. ! I can't beat that.
  • Angelo Minichiello 9mo

    Manu praba, :-)
