Gouranga

Only now have I received an e-mail that lands in my in-box every, oh, six months. Sent by nitaigouranga at aol . com, it simply says:

Call out Gouranga be happy
Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga!
That which brings the highest happiness…

I’m not sure what this exactly means, this obtuse message. But it does remind to note a vaguely consequential point:

Between one-two weeks ago, I inadvertently erased my entire, aforementioned in-box. If I owe you correspondence in any way, shape or form, please hit me with a new note of remembrance and I’ll get back in touch, in between shifts of jury duty. While daft, I do wish to hear from you!

Thank you and gouranga.
