Independence Day

Sanskrit: Janani Janma Boomicha
Swargadapi Gariyasi

Meaning: Mother and Motherland are greater than

Though I complain a lot about my country, in the heart of my hearts I luv this place...and I also know all Indians will accept this, cause all of us are made the same way.We keep ranting about the inadequacies yet we learn to live with it or change it, depending on the problem.This is what freedom means to us, the ranting and the changes they can bring about or atleast to me!

The 60th Independence day of our country was celebrated with a splendid flag hoisting ceremony by our PM in Red Fort today(the general stuff)..Looking back our country has come a long way from the tired post-colonial India to the raising Super power..We are the land tat still knows its roots and is aiming for the stars(literally)..
I am proud to b an Indian!!

Where Cricket Is a Religion

India is a country that has been known for various things from spices to bollywood(xtra spicy)..And of all this the most important thing is the "CRICKET CraZY People" our country is populated...no no over-populated with..Where ever cricket is being played, Indian media covers it all!

For a country whose national game is Hockey(did u know this), cricket is a religion and all the players are MORTAL gods.Every game played by the country is watched with a lot of fervor...Special poojas being performed, fans going to prayers and asking god(the real one) to help the team win, praying for no rains(otherwise we keep praying it should rain!!!)..etc are part of the pre match activities.

An indo-pak match is viewed as a battle field and victory is mandatory..any other result is quickly criticised as bad gaming tactics by our players and further complaints on how they fail to take quality time to practice well!!!

In such a country, every small change in the game is noted and followed well.the recent stuffs include the come back of Little MAster "sachin", the SECRET practice session in Bangalore and Mr.Dalmia being re-elected...Well all these are the stuff that had to happen.But, the book 'Indian Summers' by John Wright,the former Indian coach brings in a new dimension to cricket in India.The book, its said, openly critices many cricketers and also gives details about the selection process of the Indian cricket team...Great!!
Now wat r we gonna do to this guy who has cast such stain on this religion of ours..
his book is like...er....Da Wright Code...on cricket!!!
So when r we gonna start striking for this????;)
Y is the media so silent??
