Update on Chagos Case

Looks like some sort of ruling is forthcoming from a judge in the UK regarding the Chagos Islanders exiled from Diego Garcia decades ago.

This was mentioned here in the Coconut Blog back on July 29th.

Kerala's Teledensity

Kerala, a region of India that just might be the coconut capital of the world, claims to have the highest "teledensity" --- ratio of telephones per capita --- in all of India. Compared to Europe and North America, the word density would not be the first thing to come to mind: Kerala has only 10.6 telephones per 100 people, while India as a whole averages 5 per 100. The waiting list for landlines in Kerala has 460,000 names on it.
