BTW, just got to know my aunt who lives in Italy is doing a fantastic job writing recipes in Italian for South Indian Food (she's from Mysore) for Italians who want to try some vegetarian food.

Here is a link to an article published in a newspaper from Bangalore...

What cool family members I have!! I just got to know her email address and will be mailing her congratulations soon.

Bradley (Chief of the City Police) is talking to Mandrake about a serie of ten shop robberies that happens at the same time. Witnesses recognize the same man for the 10 robberies! How can that be: a single man doing ten robberies at the same times in ten different locations? "This is the question" says Bradley to Mandrake! The worst to say is that this guy is on a prison... Mandrake goes to the prison in the same cell as the suspect to try to get evidences. But the guy does not know. Will Mandrake resolve the mystery? Of course yes! But the real question is how?

Image 1:
Bradley: Ten shops have been robbered yesterday, at the same moment.
Mandrake: I read that in the news.

Image 2:
The two witness: It’s him!

Image 3:
The other 2 witness: It’s him!

Image 4:
Bradley: They identify the same man as the burglar!
Mandrake: But... it is impossible!

And that is not all!
