I am deeply humbled by the spirit of a true TGDC Fan - Dr. K.S. Anand.
Over the last 4 weeks, Dr. Anand has been a part of this journey with all of us. You have all read his comments. Love him or hate him - you can’t ignore him. I think he can rightfully lay claim to the longest numbers of hours logged on the TGDC site, the highest number of comments, and unflinching support, of course for the spirit of TGDC.
Dr. Anand started his journey with TGDC very early on. Clearly he was not in it because of the money. Heck he had already claimed a drivers seat on his brand new CEDIA!!
So why TGDC? Why spend countless number of hours in front of a computer screen, when one did not even make it to the TOP 100? Why wish all the best for the TOP 12 when there was nothing in it for him? These are some of the things which weighed deep on my mind (as I ploughed through and tried to make sense of some his rather intense mails).
Then last few days Dr. K.S. Anand fell silent. I missed him - often the lone commenter on some of my later posts. When the heat and dust had settled, and everyone had walked away, Dr. K.S.Anand nudged me up from my sleep, berated us for our slipping steps, and urged us to the call of duty.
“It is the spirit of TGDC stupid”, he yelled from the pulpit.
I am glad to say that Dr. K.S. Anand is back online and he has shown what it takes to be a true fan. Here are few comments he posted online just a few minutes back, as we chomped on Tikkas and gulped our drinks down at the 19th hole.
I dedicate these comments to the TOP 12 contesting couples, the esteemed jury and to the organizers of this event, Mitsubishi Cedia. May god bless us all.
