Someone sent me the above message privately.  I'm answering her here
so that she knows I didn't meant what I said to be a cheap shot.  I'm sorry
if I offended anyone when I described Madan as a "foreigner".  Madan,
I hope you won't take offense.  If you read my message again, you would
notice that I put "foreigner" in inverted commas.  It was meant to be
tongue-in-cheek.  My sense of humour can get to be a bit twisted at
times.  I was just imitating "you know who" who called me a foreigner
