I spent 3 weeks in Kenya in 2008, trying to connect the Nairobi Women's Hospital with angel investors who wanted to lend them $100 million at extremely favorable rates. No-one understood what was required legally, certainly not in  Nairobi, and the whole deal fell apart when I was arrested under suspicion of being a terrorist for 19 hours for photographing a Kenyan flag. The day after I was released I came down with malaria. A weekend to remember.


During 3 weeks in Nairobi, visiting hospitals and institutions, the strong Indian presence in Kenya was obvious.

On Jan 04, 2016, Pranav Dhanawade, a 15-year-old school student was unbeaten in cricket, when he scored 1009 runs in a single innings, and won the match for KC Gandhi School against Arya Gurukul School. 

This was the greatest number of runs for a single innings for anyone, and 40% more than the previous record by Arthur Collins who batted 628 when he was 13 in England in 1899. Arthur Collins was killed at 29 in November 1914 in Ypres during the First World War. 

Let us hope, and make sure, that this achievement is only the beginning of a long, healthy and purpose-filled life. Well done Pranav! Well done KC Gandhi School!
