I bash it up? Accidentally, of course.

Why would “Please don’t come. Please don’t race here. And please don’t telecast races here.” not be an appropriate response?
As India seems to show interest in joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations, it will be worthwhile to get an idea of what it is.
Most Indian groups descend from a mixture of two genetically divergent populations: Ancestral North Indians (ANI) related to Central Asians, Middle Easterners, Caucasians, and Europeans; and Ancestral South Indians (ASI) not closely related to groups outside the subcontinent. The date of mixture is unknown but has implications for understanding Indian history. We report genome-wide data from 73 groups from the Indian subcontinent and analyze linkage disequilibrium to estimate ANI-ASI mixture dates ranging from about 1,900 to 4,200 years ago. In a subset of groups, 100% of the mixture is consistent with having occurred during this period. These results show that India experienced a demographic transformation several thousand years ago, from a region in which major population mixture was common to one in which mixture even between closely related groups became rare because of a shift to endogamy.
PS: ‘endogamy’ is an euphemism for ‘caste’, in this case.
Was unable to watch the whole movie. This time the movie was ஏழாம் அறிவு (“7aum Arivu”) which appears to be a homage to the (lost) glory days of ancient Tamil peoples. As a Tamilian, I emphasize that paying ‘homage’ to anything through movies must be banned with great urgency.
A side note: A friend of mine had this to say on this movie - ”அஞ்சுக்கே வழி இல்லெங்கும்போது….”
