Here is something interesting. If John from that planet shook his hand with John from our planet ... they would be annihilated instantly to sparks of light!

The author may not be on too much Ganja after all. Is he a bengali?

anyways, Raj - this is your chance to meet anti-raj - the better one :P wanna?
