Sorry, I hope no personal offense was taken.  I tend to a somewhat
inflammatory and sometimes short-tempered answer style which may be
less appropriate than desirable sometimes.  After listening in for a
while on TUG-India, I tried reining myself in somewhat, but just
failed this time.

In India, hot spicing of food might be better appreciated than hot
spicing of speech, though I am prone to overdoing both (eating red
chilies without diluting them with other food).  I hope to be doing
more detailed studies during the TUG2002 conference this fall.

And probably quite better explained than I could at a minute's try.
The various available FAQs really are worth taking a look at, and
some of them are referenced off from TUG India's main web site.
