    Tribute to Andre

    Last month while I was away our dear good-old jolly Andre completed his 1000 posts at CW. While Rik gave him a tribute along with many others, I wanted to give it MY way. So here it is.



















































































































    Andre is one of those guys that no matter how much we say, it would always be less. WC Schedule, Reports, Henry's interview, encouraging words, waking up at night, love of taking showers,.... There are as many great qualities about Andre as the number of stars in the universe.

    Andre was one of the first people to welcome me when I started posting on the Boards....

    He is a fine example about what is good about the boards...!!

    Prava (Brother) we are only telling the truth. Sharmaun waali koi gall nahin hai.(There is nothing about being embarresed).

    Rab tera bhala kare.(May god bless you).

    Ja jaake aish kar.(Go enjoy yourself).

    Tere bacchhe jeeyein. Bade ho ke tera khoon nahi peeyein.(May your kids grow and don't drink your blood afterwards).

    2+2=4.
    4+4=8.
    8+8=16.
    16+16=32.
    32+32=64.
    64+64=128.
    128+128=256.
    256+256=512.
    512+512=1024.
