Welcome, Suvir, it is a pleasure and an honor to see you here. Cape Chef is viewed here the same way he described you -- as a great and knowledgeable chef (although for foods OTHER THAN Indian), so when he praises you, you will be automatically accepted.
We try very hard here to "play nice." So do not fear that similar "discussions of a personal nature" might intrude on the fun of talking about food and cooking.
Thanks Mezzaluna and Suzanne!
I hope I can share with you what I know and earn the same respect that cape chef has earned through his association with the site.

A hearty welcome from Texas (a transplant, but here so long I sometimes indulge in a DP for breakfast).
My family really enjoys the local Indian Cusine, although I'm not real sure of its authenticity. I can't wait to hear more about it.
