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 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 O jha , who was made to look important by his capt

Every one knows that Satyam cinemas is the best in the Chennai city if not in the whole of India . Recently they have also opened a full fledged gaming zone across three floors in the same multiplex and I decided to see whats this all about. As I ventured into this building I has totally taken by surprise and awe on the variety of gaming devices and consoles that have been gathered under one single roof...mind boggling. You name it , they have it. Being a gaming enthusiast, I Could not resist myself from obtaining a membership card for myself. But these devices are really new to me and I decided to take on a racing simulator and it was a good experience racing in a track , feeling the jerks and bumps of a real race. But I found the Price little bit overpriced though.. The other Section I tried next was the Wii gaming. There were no slots initially and I had to wait for 30 mins until I got one. WoW ....this was really a good experience for an hour and I managed to stick on to

So near for so long.....

This is really an interesting bit of news that I had come across today. A colleague of mine, a peer in fact , with whom I did not have much interaction came to my cubicle to invite me for his marriage. I had heared about him and was aware that his marriage was due for long and now that it has materialized.... As usual I conveyed my wishes and asked about the girl. He just pointed a few rows in front of me and told the girl in green salwar was the bride. That was real surprise for me and asked if its an arranged marriage. He sweared it was an arranged marriage and it was by pure coincidence that they got the girls contact and it got materialised. They have been in the same hall for so long and yet took all this while for things to happen. Long live the couple.... Anyway I believed him and accepted his statement...did you ??

Congress Goverments austerity drive

Pranab travels in economy class, Sonia travels in economy class, Rahul traveled in train....these are some of the austerity measures and we are supposed to think that goverment wants to cut down expenses. The idea is good but it is not yet another way to get publicity. Do it in all areas including Govt functions, cut down the fleet of cars that accompany politicians, the mountain of shawls that they recieve which barely hangs for few seconds(do they recycle this ? Just a thought :) ) over their shoulders, the power they draw for meetings(which goes unaccounted). The list is endless........ Do this in silence and not for publicity....

Swine flu Scare

Swine flu..the latest in the headline these days....not sure how it all originated but it seems to create havoc and take lives of those infected in a matter of few days. Everybody is really scared and the worst part is, children are the most easy targets. Parents have to be really on their toes to keep their wards away from this. I also got few masks.but little hesitant to use it....Not sure when the medical world finds a cure for this deadly virus...hope it is sooner.

Cool Gadget

As I was going through the pages of Ebay , which I do more often these days I happen to see an MP4 player with lots of feature loaded and with a touch screen interface which mimics the iPod. Being a gadget freak( I think I can call myself that way) I thought a lot about it and was interested in buying it. It really had a host of features which included music player, Mp4 video player, Radio, camera, ebook reader, picture viewer, voice recorder/player, lot of small apps...hmmm was really attractive. Only think was, that it was not a branded one...ofcourse if its branded it would have been priced very heavily. I logged out with an indecisive mind...... Day 2... Again same idea...same website..this time tried to connect with the buyer to know more about it...He told only the positives as expected. Went to other sites to read the reviews. Compared the same with a Branded product. I received a huge was priced 6 times higher that my target price...Again logged off. Day 3... PRESSED
