Thanks. I recall there was a big ruckus at the timeof the expulsion of Uganda's Indians in. Many of them held British passports, so went to settle in the UK; which was resented by some illiberally-inclined Britons. I'd really hardly given any thought to this business, since then.

Uganda seems a pretty hapless place: it's uncommon, and thus nice, to hear anything positive concerning it -- in this case, the excellent Indian food !
