From “The Wrestler“: I just want to say to you all tonight I’m very grateful to be here. A lot of people told me that I’d never wrestle again and that’s all I do. You know, if you live hard and play hard and you burn the candle at both ends, you pay the price for it. You know in this life you can loose everything you love, everything that loves you. Now I don’t hear as good as I used to and I forget stuff and I aint as pretty as I used to be but god damn it I’m still standing here and I’m The Ram. As times goes by, as times goes by, they say “he’s washed[…]

Some random notes from the extended weekend I am enjoying. Andrew Symonds is an idiot. Why would you call another player a “lump of shit”? That too on air. That too when you take offense at someone calling you a monkey. And that comment about Hayden’s wife. Funny, but not done!! Slumdog Millionaire is a good movie. But it does not deserve to be in the Top 250. And 10 Oscar nominations. Are you kidding me?? Frieda Pinto looks good 🙂 The Wrestler is another good movie. Bottom line – you need someone to talk to. The scene where he is getting a lap dance, but is clearly not interested in it, is very real. The Big Lebowski is as[…]

Rules of the game: Check if your name is at the end of this blog post. If so, type out a similar blog copy-pasting these rules. After that, list down 10 random things about yourself (that many do not know) and then tag 5 more people who have to do the same. My List: I love doing nothing, and I mean nothing. Not even thinking. Just sit down and do nothing. I love walking. Also, I almost walk like Morpheus does in The Matrix – supremely aware of the people around me. Unlike Parul, I love being barefeet. In fact, I take off shoes at office in evenings. Once I almost got caught by our COO walking barefeet in office[…]

This guy is awesome. Actually, he is beyond awesome. He is the only other cricketer of the current bunch, after the God of course, I would pay to watch play. He wields the willow like no one, and scores his at will. He is one off the old block. Days when cricket was not entertainment (no T20 tamasha), even though his game is very entertaining. Days when people loathed getting their clothes dirty. Days when saving a single was not too essential. When people did not want to slide across the field. Now don’t get me wrong – I am not against fit players, I am huge Jonty fan – but then, he did save more runs every innings than[…]

… to all you BSchools out there. If you have just denied me a place on your program, in all probablity I am not interested in joining some social network for applicants! Please, it hurts. Oh, and just so that you know, it cannot be approximately 324 people. It can be approximately 320, or 330. Not 324 – from where did you round off, 323.69 applicants??
