Did you know that there were 18,000 Indians holed up in Libya about a week back? The Indian government is going all out to evacuate all Indians in the region as Col Gaddafi refuses to let go of his assumed control over Libya. Back home, Aruna Shanbaug lies in a vegetative state for 37 years running but sees a glimmer of hope as the court allows passive euthanasia in her case. We'd love to know your views on euthanasia. Have you heard of a state stocking up on blood in anticipation of state elections? We just did: It's West Bengal. In other news, our beloved Uncle Pai, the creator of Amar Chitra Katha and Tinkle series passed away. RIP.
