This weekend was about as good as it gets. I mean one of the better ones in this place. Sanghi had come over on Friday evening. Dinner outside and then that crappy movie called Zinda. It is supposed to be another brilliant one from our very own Tarantino (the amount of blood and gore being the comparison), Sanjay Gupta but failed to make any impression on me other than the scene with the actress tied up 😉 Agle subah we woke up to head to NII where we had planned on spending the weekend with TK and Bharathi. Ride for Bansal and Sanghi must have been good in that Innova but was awesome for me. I did some 20 kms[…]

Lots hasn't been happenning. But contained below are a few pieces I wanted to write about. 1. Casanova sucks – Always thought that being Casanova required something special in the person like charisma and behaviour and a way with the ladies. Seems it doesn't!! Rejoice all geeks!! This yuccky movie suggests that it has to only do with how well is someone physically endowed!! Crappy movie. Avoid at all cost. 2. India lost to Pakistan – One more game left. Let's see if India can bounce back. Also Indian management (if there is one) has decided to give Sehwag and Kaif a break. Sachin has taken a break from WI ODI series and players are complaining of burn outs. And[…]

Feel like cribbing a lot today. Work is as much as I can do without going crazy or burning myself out. Not bad though. What is bad is working with too many women!! I am the lone guy on the project with 4 other females, three of whom insist on talking in kiddo lingua (like the famous BITSian “baccha farty” gang) and behaving in a very very girly manner that is so damn pissing off. Also hating the fact that India lost to England (finally!!). Sehwag, I dont give a damn about the bowler or the ball, as usual decided that he will not change the way he bats. Kaif, “look ma I got double figures“, tried to get a[…]

If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing. ~ Anatole France Which proves that the 500+ bums sitting in that place called the Indian parliament are what they are. Dumbasses. Meanwhile, the Govt of Maharastra, decided to probe the wardrobe malfunction that made Ms. Gracias cry on the shoulders of a co-model. Ms. Carol was however of the view that such events are common in the business. It has completed the enquiry (talk about short turn around time) and arrived at the conclusion that it was, indeed, a malfunction and not an attempt for cheap publicity. Mr AN Roy does have a "hard" work to do along with the Govt which decided to use the sparse[…]

“Statistics are like a short skirts. They hide a lot more than they reveal.” This is a quote that is used very often by cricket commentators and gurus. I am however baffled what these statistics reveal and hide. Sehwag in his last 50 innings (excluding todays) has scored 1381 runs at 28.77 with 7 fifties and a century. Ganguly on the other hand in his last 50 had scored 1403 at 30.50 with 10 fifties. Is there something that I dont understand about perform or perish policy of the indian selection committee? Meanwhile, India keeps winning ODIs (from amazing situations) and losing out badly in Tests (ones that really matter). Update: Meanwhile, Greg has this to say about Kaif and[…]
