Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

And of course, Aung San Suu Kyi is out of house arrest (for the last time, I hope!). When she received the Nobel in 1991, I was just 11 years old and (having returned to India after the Kuwait invasion) only just beginning to look at politics and the world outside the Middle East (of course, I grew up on a standard fare of Israel-PLO violence on TV). In fact, I think Suu Kyi's Nobel is the first Nobel peace prize I remember noticing. Along with Mandela, who was released sometime then, she was one of my "for freedom" heroes.
