Twenty Twnety World Cup Vs Asia Cup …. Cricket vs Hockey!!

September 27, 2007

A new debate now … cricket versus other games … actually, the debate should have been: the pathetic fate of sports in India except cricket.Well, I just happened to read about the hockey players making hue and cry over the step-motherly treatment given to the national game,cricket being the chief reason. I daresay this to be an absolute truth. Nobody gave a damn when India won the Asia Cup but on this twenty twenty world cup win, people are going mad after it.Whose fault is this? Government or people ?? The thing is: people will watch only that which pleases them whether its hockey or cricket or some other game.What matters is how you are promoting the game? There is nobody to endorse hockey or as a matter of fact, none of the games except cricket. The announcement of prizes in the form of money for the cricket players by BCCI is justified as it is just concerned about cricket but, this wasn’t anticipated from the government which didn’t pay much attention to the Asia Cup winners.The government should be equally responsible for all the games and not just some particular game. I personally like cricket more than any other game and I was as jubilant as any other Indian Cricket fan while I didn’t pay much attention to the Asia Cup win of the Indian Hockey team but this thing can’t be changed.If I like cricket, then I’ll obviously see cricket and if I don’t like hockey, then I won’t go for it. If hockey or any other game is advertised properly, then its possible that my interest might move towards that side also. So, I think government should look into the matter seriously now as this is going to be a big debate in the coming days because it is a shame that the hockey players have to demand their dues in such a fashion.

PS: Congrats Men in blue : you guys were awesome 🙂 .


India – US Nuclear Deal

September 5, 2007

“Save Government or N-deal” –the situation has come to this point now. Communists are anti-americans and oppsition has to oppose in everything, are these the only points going against the deal.Why don’t we analyze the situation properly?
I had a healthy but heated 😀 discussion with my friends also on this point and I thought this needs to be shared.
A few points are going against the deal. The first point which seems to be just an excuse by the deal-opposers so as to oppose the deal is : India has 25% of the total reserves of Thorium and extensive research is going on in this field to indigeneously produce the nuclear fuel at cheaper rates. But in case, we are in a deal with US, govt. won’t be interested in such research and it’ll stop spending money in such things which will not be good for our country. The second weak point which comes into picture is: India will become a puppet of Uncle Sam (US). Earlier, she had a neutral stand on the Iran issue, but after the negotiations for deal has started, India changed it’s stand and condemned Iran openly on the issue.The third point which I think is a major one is: As foreign policy of India is changing drastically towards Iran, so this is a specualtion that Iran won’t allow to build the highly publicized India-Iran gas pipeline. As Nuclear Energy will be able to make up for at most 7% of the total energy produced in our country and it’ll take at least 50 years for it to develop to such an extent that it’ll contribute something substantial during which we might we have got some good method for producing nuclear fuel or some other supply, so is it justified to leave the current profit which is waiting for us in the form of gas pipeline?

But most of us are in favour of deal I think. The first point is: Why would Iran go against the pipeline – India will get fuel and Iran will get money, proper trade, both sides will be absolutely satisfied. But deal opposers might say why would Iran sell it’s fuel to India (which is openly criticizing it) as it might sell that to other countries because every country is in dire need of fuel. (I don’t really know the intricacies in relations between India and Iran, so I wouldn’t like to go further into this point.). Many other points are going in favour of deal some of which are: We’ll get nuclear fuel which will be a boost to our civilian nuclear programme. As we are dealing with US, so it’ll further strengthen our relations with that country which may prove a boon to us.( Who knows, this might pacify our relations with Pak by US interruption (this is sth hypothetical i guess), neways,) It’ll improve the economic relations between the two countries which is essential for us to support our fast growing GDP.

So, I think a lot of discussions are needed before getting into this deal which in fact, are going on.Let’s hope that it brings out the best for our country.


Paggu ki Sketching Class

June 9, 2007

After a lot of head banging, we started discussing mascot. Suddenly, a thought struck Paggu’s mind – “I also want to learn SKETCHING”
Then started what I have termed as


Paggu was sitting in his usual pose (the sl**ty one 😀 ) and the two masterjis (guess who) – ………………….
Chand and Mota(Piyush) , the sketching bonds of UG2 😛 , were sitting on his two sides gearing themselves up to teach their student.I was sitting in their front making notes of the meeting which I’m writing here to share with you.

Chand: Make a tree.
Paggu made that.
Chand: Kuch bhi arbit banaya hai.Yeh sab saale bachche yahi banate hain.
Piyush: Haan.
Then Chand started blowing his own trumpet (which he usually does, not something special ) .
Chand: Main bina dekhe face banata hun.
Then Chand drew some face.
Look at the reactions of Paggu and Piyush after looking at that.
Paggu: O Bhe*ch*d.
Piyush: Kamina hai saala.
Paggu: Sahi mein kamina hai.
Chand: Observe karna chahiye saale , sketching bahut easy cheez hai.
Piyush: Observation factor hai, par …….. thinking bahut matter karti hai……….thinking badhti hai.
Chand again started blowing his own trumpet.
Chand: Piyush ka face banaya tha English class mein…..match kar raha tha…abe kar raha tha na??
Mota Ubaasi leta hai……Paggu arbit BC shuru kar deta hai…….main Chand ko gali bakta hun (for some inexplicable reasons 😀 ) ……
Isi ke saath karyakram ki smapti hoti hai.

Result: Paggu ki sketching vahin ki vahin hai…..uska sketching ka keeda Chand ke muh miya mitthu banne aur Piyush aur Chand ki OBSERVATION and THINKING par shuru hui BC ke saath hi hamesha ke liye khatam ho jata hai.
To bachchon kahani ka saar yeh hai ki karna kuch bhi ho, har chiz arbit BC ke saath hi khatam ho jati hai……………BC rox…………BC ajar-amar hai…..baki sab shanik matra hai…..shan-bhangur hai…….ant mein BC ki vijay nishchit hai…..baki sab bhul kar dil kholkar bc kiya karo….isi se tumhe moksha ki praapti hogi 😀 .


Hyderabad Bomb Blasts – Why??

May 18, 2007

A moron was laughing,a real devil smile.There were cries all around.Animosity between the two groups had taken the shape of riots.This moron got succeded in making his brainchild a real success.He was the happiest man in this careworn world – a world full of sorrows and worries,a tired world,a world completely sick of riots,bomb blasts,terrorist activities.He was celebrating his success – a success laid on innumerable dead bodies of innocent people.Suddenly the phone rang.He was anticipating some good news,a news which will intensify his success.Yes,there was the news but he was crying,crying like hell.He lost his only son in riots.”Nafrat ki aag mein doosron ko jalane valon,yaad rakho,ek din yahi aag tumhare apno ki chita jalayegi”.No amnesty should be granted to these dickheads and yes,Almighty did the same,HE tanned his hide brutally.
Now don’t misunderstand me.I’m not talking about the bomb blasts recently happened in the city.The above riots have nothing to do with today’s blasts.These riots are fictitious.This is a message for all the arseholes involved in blasts,riots and all such things.No doubt,you sadists have succeded a bit in making this world a hell,but remember,you,your family and your coming generations will also have to live in this hell along with others.
When I was apprised of the blasts by Khatri,I was appalled,my mouth agape.It’s quite obvious,such a violence is really hard to stomach.We were in the city that time and quickly hired an auto to rush to our insti.People were rushing to their homes anticipating some more blasts as is usually the case.Everybody was in a hurry.Police was trying to ameliorate the conditions.144 came into effect at certain places to control the situation.
The reason behind the blasts is arcane to us,but what I personally beleives is these are the attempts to alienate the two groups for certain selfish reasons. Why?The blast took place in Mecca Masjid on a busy time and that too on Friday with a remote operated bomb.Everything seems to be properly planned by the arseholes.Maybe something is amiss in what I’m thinking but my mind can locate only this reason.The two groups have lived amicably in this city for years and I expect and pray the same to happen now also,no riots…nothing of this kind.People should behave sensibly.No anodyne can releive the pain of riots and we need to understand this.I love the concept of “Vishva Mandir”,a lesson in Hindi book of 10th class.A mandir for every religion where anyone can go.People of different religions sit together in an amiable environment,an environment full of amity.There should be only one religion “Peace and Amity”.Peace in the whole world,amity amongst each and every possible pair of human beings.No riots,no bomb blasts,no wars,nothing.Common,gear up for this difficult but possible task.This task doesn’t require any labour from you,the only thing you have to do is to think seriously about what I have said,just think about “Vishva Mandir”.Think with reason,not with religion and make this world a better place to live in.We are living on a land which doesn’t have any characteristic of its own.It depends on us to make it heaven or hell by our activities.Who wants to live in hell,…nobody.Still,these things are happening.This is sheer madness.We need to come out of this madness.We want to live in heaven,don’t we??


ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 : India v Bangladesh – A review

March 18, 2007

Let’s start with the scorecard and the awesome performance of Indian Batsmen.

SC Ganguly 66 178
V Sehwag 2 12
AR Uthappa 9 22
SR Tendulkar 7 40
R Dravid 14 31
Yuvraj Singh 47 60
MS Dhoni 0 5
Harbhajan Singh 0 4
AB Agarkar 0 7
Z Khan not out 15 22
MM Patel 15 17

Fall of wickets 1-6, 2-21, 3-40, 4-72, 5-157, 6-158, 7-159 ,8-159 , 9-159, 10-191

Wow,What a game!Wonderful performance by “Men in Blue”.It appeared as if there was the competition among Indian batsmen in which the winner would be the person with worst performance.I would love to praise our hot favourite V Sehwag.How consistent he is?He proved himself once again.He has shown his skills to the whole world(How to perform bad consistently?and still play for your team(if this would have happened earlier,Ganguly would have definitely taken tips from him to remain in team.).).Indian team should have this thing in mind that they have only 9 wickets in hand(as Sehwag is just for wasting some balls.)

Anyways,let’s come to the toss now.Indian skipper won the toss and chose to bat first, a decision which must have prompted Bangladesh manager to ask ICC to dope test the Indian skipper.Dravid was duly dope tested after the game and one guesses a lot of it must have had to do with his stupid decision.
Then started the downfall of Indian batting.Just have a look at the scorecard(5-157, 9-159).3 ducks (7-159, 8-159, 9-159).3rd highest top scorers were Zaheer and Patel.Only two players could go 20+.That’s why it’s a known fact that we have the best batting line in the whole world.
But,Tamim Iqbal(Bangladeshi batsman,age 17) deserves accolades,the way he played so much confidently against Indian seemers especially Zaheer Khan should be a source of inspiration for our batsmen.I think I should add one more point to my last post(12.) India’ll win the worldcup
Height of optimism).
Well, this was just a start.I extend my best wishes to our team.Hope they’ll play better in the coming games.
