Lalit Modi's foot in mouth disease continues. Read this. He said Ricky Ponting is pressurizing other players for pulling out from IPL because he was dropped from KKR. Well, that's a hopeless statement. One can not doubt Ricky Ponting's ability. As much as I hate Ponting, I can not help but admire his talent, temperament. His skills are extra ordinary. Performance in IPL is not at all a reflection of a player's abilities. I think Sachin, Kallis, Ponting, Dravid, Laxman are above the IPL or 20-20 in general. Some say a good player is good in all forms of the game. NO !! Tomorrow if Anil Kumble gets hammered in HongKong SuperSixes would you say he is not a good bowler. Shaun Pollock had a torrent time in IPL 1. He still was a quality bowler. But we all know why Mr. Modi and other BCCI officials are here for...

Well... no cricket fan will forget this day forever for history was written in Gwalior today. I just can not imagine what cricket would be like when Sachin will retire. I have never seen Indian cricket without Sachin. He has been playing since 1989 and I can not stretch my cricket memories before 1992. So he ( I should write 'He')has been around forever. Here are some other performances that will never be erased off my mind.

1. Sachin Tendulkar twin centuries in Sharjah in 1998.
2. VVS Laxman scoring 281 at eden gardens.
3. Ricky Ponting's 155 in '03 WC final (:()
4. Sachin's 98 against Pakistan in WC 03
5. Rahul Dravid scoring 233 at Adelaide in 03.
6. Saurav Ganguly scoring 144 at Gabba in '03.
7. Steve Waugh's partnership with Gillespi at Eden Gardens in 01.
8. Sachin's 155 against Pakistan at Chennai in '99.
9. Graeme Smith's 90 in Jo'Berg against Aus in that 434 match.
10. Saeed Anwar's 194 against India in Chennai.

एक 'बाप' जोक...

पहिला मुलगा : माझे बाबा इतके उंच आहेत, इतके उंच आहेत कि ते उडत्या हेलिकॉ्प्टरला हात लाऊ शकतात.
दुसरा मुलगा : माझे बाबा पण खूप उंच आहेत पण ते असली यडझवेगिरी करत नाहीत.

Another question

Do other animals commit suicide? Can they commit suicide? I don't know. Interesting question... May be this is the difference between humans and other animals...

Damn... this is what I am thinking on valentine's day??? Gosh,,, I need a girlfriend...


We often hear this word. Indian economy grew at so and so rate... Pune is growing very fast... Our company offers great growth oportunity... You must learn to grow in your life... falana dheekana... But do we know the answer to the basic question? What is meant by growth? Growth in terms of age, money, information, knowledge... what? Age growth stops when we die. There is no end for growth in monetary terms. One can always earn more money than what one is having at any particular moment. What is interesting is the growth in knowledge. But knowledge of what. I feel the most exciting part would be the most sought after question The very reason for our existance. The difference between death now and say some years down the line (phony name given to it is 'natural death'.) I guess growth means the closeness to the answer to this question. And basic necessities are the ones which help human being find answer to this question. or rather than help, keep them alive so that they can find an answer to this question.
