India's ascent to the top spot in Tests

The wait is over...

Today's Newspaper confirmed that INDIA is the Top team in Test cricket as per ICC standing.
This bunch of cricketers made history and achieved what could not be achieved by their predecessors. Dhoni after getting the top job, now holds the record for not losing a game in 10 matches he had captained...

One interesting note here. This is what I observed during the presentation ceremony after wining the test series.

Presentation is on and the chief guest hands over the Trophy to Dhoni..

Dhoni calls the team to come and pose for the Photo as it is now a custom to do so....

So till then all is usual.......here comes the differentiator

Dhoni hands over the Trophy to Pragyan Ojha...the new comer in he team and the debutant in this series..Ojha takes the trophy in his hands and sees the coveted trophy unable to believe that it has been given to him...

This act is sure to add to the confidence of the young Ojha , who was made to look important by his captain and also the honour of holding the coveted cup for the Photo. We will not be able to spot Dhoni in the photo flashed in the newspapers the next day as he choose to take back seat....

Truly this is a different captain we have got.

Winning your boss

As I was observing on the Process of Appraisals that were going on in my new Organisation, it brought about the subjectivity that is present in the system. The only way to come out in flying colors is, be a pet to your Boss and reap rich dividends. Though the companies claim about the various thought process that has been put forward in designing the appraisal system, it all boils down to the previous line you just read. I know a guy who always came out with the best score possible during the appraisal not because he did a great job but for his attitude to tasks given by his Boss. I do not claim that he is a person who just thrives because of the "pet" tag , though he does pretty decent job. But if you consider his peers who do the same "decent" job, they somehow end up lower than him. WHY ? Again it is how he presents himself to the boss...Watch below some of his action. Never disputes the idea told by the Boss. Can always spot some think good in the Worst of

Australia - Racist ?

Now Australia is in the News for all wrong Reasons. Guess what ! the most peaceful country in the world has now been branded as a Racist Country by the Asians living over there. But something tells me from the various inputs received ,Australia is not all to blame for. Australia has education as the third biggest source of income and is really building its base on the foreign students who fly down from across the world mainly from Asia . Having said that can they really afford to be Racist is the question that comes to mind. Australians are no doubt a mixed group of people with various levels of education and majority of them are really assertive (unlike Indians ) no matter what their level of education is. This being the case how do our Desi guys conduct themselves in a foreign land is also a thing to ponder. For instance, Desi's form large groups on streets and keep talking loudly ,blocking the path and Australians find this really awkward and unlike Indians being assertive t

33% reservation

33% reservation for women - It is being said as a breakthrough in the history of Indian parliement for having this passed in Rajya sabha, which had the blessing of Sonia Gandhi(the holder of the remote control of Indian goverment) Some want a reservation within this reservation for Muslims and (so called)lower caste women as they feel upper caste women would crush lower caste women. My question is Will these politicians ever change ? A party can decide which women candidate  can contest and if these members are so concerned about the particular sect , let them field all the 33% with their favourites!! who on earth is stopping them. Second(Actually this is should be first) question is does each party have some many ABLE(note this is bold) women candidates to field. I am not sure if this is really necessary. My opinion is India should be reservation free and the competant should make it for any post -any gender or caste...Way to go.
