The Indian Wall had a great Fall

India didn't get into the Super Eights (Or is it super Sixes? And what's so super 'bout them anyway?) Indian marketin' scenario took a jolt, spendin' millions (its crores but I'm too lazy to check its technical authencity) on campaigns centered on these players.

I saw Tendulkar in a Reliance ad, does that mean that mighty Bharti AirTel didn't renew his contract. Most companies, TVS, PEPSI (big time), Tata, etc are now promotin' their bollywood counterpart, for they are afraid that the loosin' team will give it a bad brand image.

Greg Chapell should be careful, for he might be killed (and we 'dnt be surprised after that Woolmer incident). I dunno him, but hell, I think most people know him from the crap media feeds them.
Dravid is under scrutiny.... much to subtle, aloof in the field, lacks motivational skills-blah-blah blah...just some time ago, he was supposed to be the best captain India had.
Tendulkar, the one who got India on the global map, is now, too old and not fit for playin'.

Funny though, I think Australians perform well because they take it lightly and don't give much shit to what media says. In fact, hardly anyone is even bothered in the Land of Oz.

Its India, where they pray you, pray for you, and then give a tight kick. And 'm sure there's gonna be action replay for this, again and again.

Color Color!

Originally uploaded by Normando.

5 things I've learnt on this Holi:

5. The best way to get yourself all drenched is tell them that you are not playin' or somethin' like that, and wham, you are colored head to toe. And no don't try reverse psychology, because if ya tell them to go ahead they'll gladly do so..Heck!

4. When those cute-lookin'-li'l children ask what your favourite color is, never say Green, for that love stained color shows on your face, esp brows and ears, and in my case on extra-sensitive-can't-tolerate-nothin' nose, for good time.

3. No use of your backup mobile, you might as well throw it in the nearest bin. The inbox gets full and the battery gets drained in a jiff. Yes, that means I lost my phone again for the nth time.

2. Stay away from those female rogues who keep darin' those children "Unko rang lagane mein dar lagta hai kya?" And tell every other person, tell ya what, I think you look a lot better like this or for that matter, Jesus H. Christ, these colors have absoultely no effect on you, you all are scary as ever.... big grin

1. The best part is the evening, when you get to eat, and eat and eat...whoooooo!
