A comment from the author in my BLOG!!

There are a few days in one's life my friends when the cosmos works its magic entirely to make you happy!
I think we generally live all our other days in anticipation of this day.
What will this special day bring us?
A call from a long lost friend, some unexpected money from somewhere, a beautiful gesture from the one you love or a totally unexpected wonderful comment on your BLOG which just brightens your day! :)
In my case a comment from the author of a book that i previewd
We Came in Peace for all Mankind- the untold story of the Apollo 11 silicon disc
by Tahir Rahman...
just two posts before. Click the link The other silicon disc to take a look at my post and below is the comment i recieved. I feel somewhere close to feeling honoured....

The comment by the author Tahir Rahman himself...

Thanks for your interest Preeth. Nice blog! I hope that my book makes people aware that the moon landing was definitely real. Young people seem to have lost the reality check here. I have met many of the 12 moonwalkers including Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. They really did go to the Moon!

The silicon disc has many messages from the world. I like the fact that there are messages from India, Pakistan, Israel, many Arab nations, the Vatican, etc.

My parents immigrated to the U.S. from Pakistan in the 1960's. The moon landing was mankinds greatest adventure. It is my hope that the worlds unites again for mankind's next great adventure into the heavens.

Tahir Rahman, author of We Came in Peace for all Mankind- the untold story of the Apollo 11 silicon disc

@ silicon disc: This is indeed very nice of you sir. To be honest with you, I'm in a dillema. I'm a kind of person who finds it difficult to accept gifts. But it is such a nice gesture from you. I will leave my address there. Please keep visiting my space. Cheers.

@preeth

and a signed copy of any book...well its valuable - i have some three -four books - very recent being one from bill clinton :)
