Target Mumbai

Terror strikes Mumbai again. A new terror date is created--26/11.

Yes, nobody knows where when and what next.

And WHY.

Cricket Vibes

After many years India is fast adopting a positive ruthless attitude and is winning matches consistently. Defeated Aus in ODI 2-0, Aus in Test 2-0 and defeated England in ODI with a 4-0 lead. But some people, so much used to a negative mindset, are giving odd reactions.
One reporter of a channel started babbling what England is doing and what it's supposed to do. Well, it's a fact that the weaker team always loses and you don't ask, hey buggers, why are you so weak! You criticize them identifying the areas of weakness. But you have to laud the winning team for its victory. Mercifully the reporter was cut short.
Another scribe wrote that England lost the last two matches due to the D-L method. Yes, the D-L rules are complex, but it cannot possibly harm the better team.

The fear was there, but securtiy was utterly lacking. Well why innocents are being killed everywhere with nobody knowing where when what next. What purpose it serves?

We were there for one month. Organized a musical function in fond memory of our father Bibekananda Bhattacharyya on the occasion of his first death anniversary, in Guwahati, Sept 28, 2008. The function named 'Prashanti' was a huge success with the innovative ways it was conducted. Ragini and myself compiled and edited a small book too as a souvenir. We hope to make it an annual musical event on 28th of any winter month, because 28th is our father's birth, death and marriage date which is significant.
