A tyrst with destiny, once again

He's done it. Barack Hussein Obama is the 44th President of the US - a man who won his people's vote for his dream of equality, peace and justice.

Follow the best of what happened and is happening on inauguration day through Sujatha's collage of words as she paints a kaleidoscope of images that we here have not been able to see on beamed images. And her hope and the hope of millions with her, drips through the keyboard, seeping through monitor screens, entering our lives and ideologies as well. It's going to be tough sleeping tonight.

Congratulations, America.

So nice to no longer hate the US president, no? Expectations are so high but I think he's relieved some of that just by coming to work!

Will read Sujatha's post too...
