      hmmm, your reference to India made me wonder if I've heard of this star
      before. I thought it was weird that I dreamed of something I never heard
      of..... but perhaps it was just subconscious mental clutter. Regardless, I
      guess my research has to get personal from here. Thanks Diana!!!
