  13. Hello Vamsi.. Congratulation on your US Visa. This maybe out of context. I've seen in You Tube "Beyond the Da Vinci Code" a documentry by History Channel. But now it looks like its removed now. I found a forumn in Orkut in which you have posted a torrent link. That too is not working. Do you have the video and is there a way I can get it from you. I couldnt scrap you in Orkut.

  14. hi Vamsi,

    HEART CONGRATULATIONS and ALL THE BEST for the long road ahead
