Commonwealth Shame 2010!

Image
Why the obvious was not perceived as the obvious? After the biggest scam to hit the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi the responsibility was still left to the pack of thieves! The chief of thieves carried on boasting, carried on the Baton from place to place wasting more and more of taxpayers' money! Corruption should also have some honesty! You make money okay, but do the work! At least! Just what's going on? With hardly ten days left we are still talking of preparation! India boasts of her hospitality, but athletes are withdrawing day after day, teams are delaying arrivals and countries are issuing advisories. Honorable Prime Minister has intervened now and the chief of thieves has been sidelined. But why now? That should have happened long long back. Huge wastage of taxpayers' money in a country of poverty stricken illiterate millions and with inflation raging at 15%+ still. Okay, it was decided to waste the money in the spirit of sports and goodwill. But after decidi

Desperately Seeking Amitabh Bachchan !

Image
The superstar of the millennium is shining bright, as ever. From hair oil to cricket to politics the name of Amitabh Bachchan has become synonymous with success. Anybody launching anything needs him to succeed.  When he was growing a little old there was brief stopover in his success graph in the early nineties. But 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' made him roar back to mainstream. Everybody understood how much Amitabh Bachchan was loved adored and respected by one and all and in all fields of activities. His growing age was a challenge accepted by the producers, the directors, the advertisers, the industrialists and the politicians  Indian films began to be centered on him and his age, and special protagonist or even antagonistic roles were created to fit his age. The channel producers wanted him to launch their reality shows or events or even serial. The advertisers wanted him for every product to ensure its popularity. The superstar was a must for any launch of any service or b

Well Done Monsoon! And...Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

Image
The South West Monsoon has been very generous this year. It has rained nearly 130% of normal rainfall in Mumbai and Maharashtra. That is to say, so far! The Monsoon is most likely to stay for the whole month of September. There is a  mood of celebration though in some areas excessive rainfall has threatened to cause damage to selected crops. Mumbai, suffering from 30% water cut since times immemorial, is now free of any cuts. The most enjoyable part of the Monsoon this time is that the rainfall had been spread uniformly. Nature did not finish its quota furiously in just one day or in few days and so Mumbai was free of major breakdowns. Celebrations, of course! The festival season is just about to begin! The 11 day mega Ganesh Festival starts on Friday night with idols being installed and Ganesh Chaturthi Puja on Saturday morning. Ramzan month is culminating with Id on Friday too. Then comes the nine-day Navratri ushering in the fortnight of goddess worshipping-the shakti cult

Pakistan Cricket Fixing: The Indian Link?

Image
Finally Cricket has got a huge resounding SLAP right and square it had deserved for so long! Hats off to that epic sting! And kudos to Times Now for doing a brilliant expose relentlessly and continuously! Yeah, The Rot Is Out, but the sleaze is only oozing out! Tip of the iceberg! Time and again Pakistan cricketers get on getting caught on cricket fixing innings galore. But this time it's big real and brazen. This will go a long long way before cricket or politics win! It's Pakistan of course, but why only one Indian link? It's bound to link all the way to India! BECAUSE, India's got the numbers, India's got the craze, India's got the market, India's got the money, India's got the IPLs, India's got the money spinning flat mockery of pitches and India's got the fixing mixing politics! And, to get the Indian links exposed would be kind of a Mission Impossible. You know why! Only time or hopefully Times Now will tell!

"Cricket Is Equal To Commerce!"

Image
"India and Sri Lanka conveniently reached the final of Sri Lanka Cricket ODI Tri-series-2010 and that was all that mattered. Sri Lanka had to be in the finals for doing home marketing. India had to be in the finals for doing all the marketing put together. All the wanted money being earned and swallowed what finally happened in the final was hardly of any relevance. That India lost in no way made the profit lesser. Just imagine a final without India! It's the worst nightmare possible for any commerce minded person. With the coming of one day cricket big money really came into the game. But more the money more greedy one becomes. So, they created a short cut to money by introducing IPL or short cut cricket called T20. Now they have best of both the worlds provided India oblige. To balance the limited with short cut they even introduced ground-diggers in recent times by having ads crushing and hammering the live field. For this they wanted only a long shot in between balls.H

Cricket: Say NO To Century!

Image
Suraj Randiv made a new beginning in modern aggressive cricketing history. Many of us hardly knew about this rule of counting just one run for the no ball when scores are level and not bothering about how the ball was played or what happened to it. When you cannot win, at least you try to make it hard for the opposition to achieve it or when someone is nearing a century try to prevent it with attacking field positions and bouncers and like that--was so far the mantra for aggressive cricket. Now a new kind of aggression had been added thanks to Randiv or Dilshan or Sangakkara. Doing it for the first time the deliberation could not be hidden and it was too obvious which started the huge controversy. And so, action had to be taken in the name of 'spirit of cricket'. But from now onwards bowlers will concentrate on hiding the deliberate act and will try the no-ball method as and when the opportunity is given. Poor Sehwag missed a most well  deserved match winning century.

India's Got Idiots!

Image
Your cursing someone as 'idiot!' has of late lost all sting thanks to the super movie called '3 Idiots'. Now, 'idiot' has assumed new meaning, prestige and heritage. Being 'idiotic' will now mean being genius or planning something superb. This up-gradation is all set to revamp our society, values, perceptions, inceptions and conceptions. If someone growls at you calling you an 'idiot', you will cry out in ecstasy!  The growling party will be at the receiving end. Private TV channels must capitalize on this! What are they waiting for? They must launch nation wide events like 'Idiot No1 Contest', 'India's Got Idiots', 'Who Will Become the Biggest Idiot', 'The Idiot of Idiots', 'The Idiot Champ!' and soooooooo on! There must also be huge cash awards for the best idiots. This would ensure economic up-gradation of the idiots too! Well, pay heed to this advice! Your reality shows have already created a
