It is also some of our fault - the baby boomer parents. We worked hard for what we got and made a lot of sacrifices and spoiled our children, gave them more than they needed.

Unfortunetly I was from 1-4 years old :bawl: so i dont remember anything. I hope to see 21 js on dvd. :cloud9: I'm with you! I was born in 1985, so I was far from conscious during the 21 Jump St reign. :baby: I think I was probably more concerned with conducting experiments about the edibility of p...

Did he say anything about what became of any of the people from the slum ,particularly Johnny Cigar? He didn't - however, he did mention that one of the projects he works with at the moment is a mobile medical centre for the slums in Bombay. Another rather tragic current event he discussed was the ...

He didn't mention anyting about Prabu or Afghanistan, sorry Liz. He did say that Karla's real name was Daniella and that the rockband that he fronted in Germany (!) were offered a record contract, but he obviously couldn't accept, what with being one of the world's most wanted men. lol. ~POSSIBLE SP...

Meeting Gregory David Roberts (Shantaram)

Well, seeing as you have discussed SHANTARAM here at the ONBC, I thought I'd give a little report on a function I went to today at which Greg was the guest speaker. In fact, I had to get my parents to pull a few strings (a lot, actually) to get me a ticket, considering it was a cooporate charity fun...

Okay, who reached for an empty bottle of anything last night and said,"but why's the rum gone?" Come on...admit it.... I think after last night we could mount an expedition of o...

I'm a newbie, too, kismet - but it's so nice to see how close knit the zone is :cloud9:

The footage and photos of the event completely blew (ahem, pardon the pun) my expectations out of the water.
