Chak De Cricket or Chak De Hockey???

What a great show by Young INDIAN Team in the last couple of weeks, it was a complete team effort by INDIANs in the inaugural world 20-20 tourney. And in the end, we emerged as the world champions by defeating England, South Africa, Australia and Pakistan in a row. All of those matches have been close encounters and INDIA not only defeated their oppositions but also the immense pressure on the young players. Every INDIAN Cricket lover felt proud after INDIA won the world cup in a nail biting final against Pakistan. What I observed in this tournament is, if one player fails in his batting/bowling, then there is always another player who played extra ordinary innings and helped INDIA win those do-or-die matches. I think this is what is needed in INDIAN Cricket these days. In 90's or early 2000s the matches were only one man shows, but now the situation is changed, the Young Dhoni's team proved it wrong. Its always a great achievement to win the world cup in any format of the game. Some people say it is just a 20-20 anything can happen, any one can win, but thats not true always, the team which plays brilliant game in a given day, a team which overcomes the pressure can be a winner on that day. Congrats once again to INDIA, they deserved to win.

The thought which made me write this post is I've seen news in the morning saying "Hockey players planned to go on a hunger strike". How sad it is to strike for the recognition??..There has always been a great discussion between cricket and our national game Hockey.

The Men In Blue (Cricket) have received a great welcome by Indians when they returned home where as Men In Blue (Hockey) after winning the Asia Cup were neglected. A four-year wait came to an end for Indian hockey earlier this month in Chennai. By defeating Asian Games champions South Korea were thashed 7-2 as India won the Asia Cup; their first win since the Afro-Asian Games in 2003. But there was no Chak de effect here. The players weren't felicitated as champions, like their counterparts in cricket. Thanks to Prathibha Patil, I think she is the only one who congratulated the hockey team after their victory.

The BCCI and state governments and local cricket associations have been showering the twenty20 champions with cash awards, cars and 'surprise' gifts, Team INDIA is not only happpy for the WorldCup but also for the raining cash rewards.. I am not saying that INDIAN Team should not receive all these rewards and awards after their worldcup reign, They should be because they are very well deserved to. But we are not supposed to forget that there are also some other Men In Blue who have won Asia Cup after their 4 year wait, that too with a record of not losing a single match. Isnt it great?? I agree that Asia Cup win is pretty small when compared to WorldCup. But atleast some recognition has to be given to the other Men In Blue. Also Indian Hocky Federation has announced 1000Rs for each goal they score and 2000/- will be cut for each goal that they concede. If we make a rough calculation it sums up to 50000 which is not at all comparable to INDIAN Cricket Team's Wealth after their victory.

"Why was the same recognition not given to the hockey players when they won the Asia Cup? Where were the same state governments? The monetary benefit is not the issue, the issue is about the recognition," says India's head coach Joaquim Carvalho. The coach said that four of the Karnataka players in the team would go on a hunger strike outside the Karnataka CM's residence.

"In future in the World Cup, if the Indian hockey team performs very well, then at that time I will consider their demands," says Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy.

Mind you, there are other stars too in Karnataka, not only Robin Utappa and Venkatesh Prasad.

Eight Olympic golds, a World Cup win in 1975; Indian hockey has a proud and rich heritage. But
when it comes to endorsements or prize money then Indian hockey has always lagged behind

For your reference, these are the cash awards won by INDIAN TEAM.

The team is already richer by Rs 2 crore the prize money for the T20 win.

Yuvraj Singh was handed over a reward of Rs Rs 1 crore for his brilliant six sixes.

What Yuvraj got was over and above his share of the Rs 12 crore announced by the BCCI for the

The gift from sponsors Sahara is a house worth Rs 25 lakh for each of the 15 members of the

The Baroda Cricket Association on Wednesday announced a prize of Rs 11 lakh each for Yusuf and Irfan Pathan, this was shortly followed by the Gujarat government announcing Rs 5 lakh each for the brothers.

And the list is getting longer a Porsche for Yuvraj, Rs 21 lakh from the Haryana government for
Joginder Sharma and a surprise gift for captain Dhoni from home state Jharkhand.

But he has to wait till the November 15 of next month when he is awarded the first Jharkhand
Ratna to know what it is.

I am not at all opposing cricket or cricketers, nor I want the government to cancel all the reward programms, what I want is the hockey players too should be given proper recoginition in INDIA, after all every sportsman needs recognition. What is the status of our NATIONAL SPORT in INDIA????

Thanks, and hope you liked my thoughts, your comments are always appreciable..

Which one you choose??

I've been finding many articles in the net about which is better ?? is it traditional money earning option or any online business. I want to give you some insight on this topic from what i've understood by browsing..

Lets rehearse our daily routine :
You wake-up at 7:30 AM(it may extend): You've got hardly half an hour to finish your bathroom activities ;P (if you are a lady, you may want more time for make up also). Then get dress, have break fast, and get into your vehicle ( it can be a car, a bike or even a bus).

You have to travel 40 - 60 minutes in a highway which is filled with thousands of vehicles like you hoping to reach the office early. You get there just in time for example lets take it as 9:30 AM. Then you check your outlook for any f***ing meetings. Then we spend 1/4 th of our working time passing humor sites to the fellow employees. Then, we all wait eagerly for two events in our day to day life. Those are Lunch Time and at 6:00PM. At the end of the day you will definitely need more than one hour as many of us including your boss wants to reach home

Lets get into actual work hours. Many people now a days pretend to work, and they disturb the people who are actually working. Lets take a sample conversation in the office

Mr. 1 : "Hey dude, did you finish that code"
Mr. 2 : " yeah, I am on it, i need to add two more lines to it, hey did u watch yesterday's match ( any movie which is recently released)"
Mr. 1 : "Yeah man, It was excellent, hey you know about Mr. 3 and Mr. 4. They were caught doing ...... hey watch out Mr. XXX ( this is the nick name of ur manager or boss or whatever) is coming, lets get back into work"

Many people waste 75% of the time checking emails, browsing on office humor, and gossiping on
guy next to your cubicle, also a big time waste is going for coffee breaks. I am not saying you
should not go for coffee, I am just explaining daily scenario. Now the time is 6 in the evening, now you desperately wait for your Mr. XXX to leave ( you know the reason). Going back to home, you wont do anything except eat and sleep. Slowly, you would start disliking your work. This way I think, we ( atleast some of us) are not doing what we are supposed to do in our office. Even I had the experience of working in a company by doing all the above mentioned things, now I find it is difficult for me to continue them any more. As some research say "People work better if they can choose what to do and when to do" isnt it interesting??. Now I want to get out of this so called software job and establish my own business which indeed doesnt have above problems. So how do I go about that? The only option available to me is Business. Now again, I want to spend a quality time with my family or friends. I cant go for some retail or some other business. Finally I am left with Online Business where I can work from the home watching cricket match and feeding my baby ( not now, in few years :D).

Lets look at some adv of online business :
first of all, you are the boss of your business. You dont need to stop doing whatever you do
when your boss comes to your desk...It your world, you can do whatever you want to do..

flexible timings : you dont need to get up and go to office at the particular time. You can work in the nights with a cup of coffee when everyone at the home sleeping, i think this is the best timings where you can get new ideas ( it is just my assumption, sorry if i m wrong)..

Money : How much do you spend travelling daily to your work? Do you need to spend that amount just to have a horrible lunch at your workplace when you could be having delicious food at your home?? staying at home will reduce your spendings drastically, but you need to have internet connection to your computer..this spending is very less when compared to earnings in online business...

Quality of time with your family : you could spend a whole lot of time with your kids rather than saying "This sunday", "Next month"...How muchever money you earn in ur current job you
cant buy the joy of staying with ur family..

So finally what I want to suggest is if you want to try another business other than traditional money earning option, you could always go for Online Business.. Even I want to start one of my
own, but it takes a little research and information gathering... I just wanted to share what I feel about Online Business?? Hope you all liked it.. Thanks !!!..

Is Indian Captaincy really a burden?

I aint a former Indian cricket captain nor a cricket player or not even a cricket commentator to answer this question. As a normal cricket lover, I really dont understand why theres always a buzz on indian captaincy. This happens only in India, the players who play pretty well as an individual fails to deliver the same performance as a team captain. Whats happening to him? wheres the problem lying? Is this happening with all the teams across the world? All these unsolved questions are well answered by former Indian captains who've failed miserably as a captain though they've a wonderful record as a team player. The only successful captain in my view is Sourav Ganguly, He has captained india for almost 3 years if I am not wrong. During that period, he has emerged as the aggressive captain in world. Later, he was dropped from the team as a result of poor performance as a team player. He has given more victories to Indian cricket team than any other captain in the past. But being a successful captain, he was not able to deliver his own game. Whats the problem with Sourav Ganguly? Also let me take Our great Sachin Tendulkar, He has always been a god for Indian cricket fans. But he failed terribly as a captain. What happend with Sachin? Let me make myself clear at this point, I am neither praising Sourav nor blaming Sachin. I am just trying to explain what has happened in the past. After Ganguly's exit from the team, Our Mr.Dependable has been selected as India's future Leader. He was a good and successful captain as far as I know based on Indian Team's performance. There has been a huge buzz about Dravid resigning as the Indian captain and about the person who can fill dravid's shoes. But Why did Dravid Quit after India's good performance over England though we failed to win the ODI Series. After returning INDIA all were happy about India's domination on ENGLAND both in tests and ODI's. But suddenly, I saw the news about Dravid resigning. None would have ever thought about this. What situations actually made dravid to resign unconditionally. When asked about this, Dravid Said "I wasn't enjoying batting due to captaincy pressure." There are many international team captains who have actually led their teams successfully. But we see only INDIAN captains say they couldn't handle much pressure so they step down no matter what happens to team. We dont see the same scenario with other teams. There are many captains who have led their teams into success in much more pressure. Why? From where does this pressure come? The past is past, now the INDIAN team has to be led by MS Dhoni who has just 3 years of ODI experience. I am not saying that this young fellow can not lead team INDIA which has both young stars and senior players. But in my view, Dhoni is not enjoying his captaincy in the current twenty 20 world cup. He hasnt played his so called smashing innings so far even when india is in trouble, may be he is thinking that hes a captain and he should not throw his wicket unnecessarily. Anyways, Dhoni is leading INDIA in the upcoming home series against Australia and Pakistan. We all wish him All The BEST. Who knows dhoni can emerge as the best captain INDIA has ever had. :)

After the series against Aus and PAK our news papers head lines will be "Dhoni resigns as
INDIAN Captain says he wasnt enjoying his batting and keeping. He couldnt handle the stress. So he steps Down"..just kidding.:)

The Much awaited OSO Music Released.

The much awaited SRK's forthcoming movie Om Shanti Om music was released on september 15th. The movie is directed by Farah Khan. It is her second movie after Main Hoon Na. The movie has so much hype as it revolves in 1970's and present. Also, no need to mention, SRK's new look - his six pack abs. Personally I really did not like (to be frank) his new macho man look as he was able to attract many many girls with his acting etc., i dont think there is any necessity for him to take off his shirt and dance like Salman does. Anyways, we'll have to wait for the movie to be released to know the final verdict of the people. There is one special thing in this movie, that is almost 30 biggest bollywood stars are dancing for the one song. I think song will be remembered by many of us for the coming years. And also, SRK is planning to release this film with massive 2000 Prints which is quite a big number compared to Shivaji (Rajni Kanth's) movie. Although, there are mixed responses about the music, I really liked few songs. To remind you, most of us including me did not like shivaji music when it was released. So, it takes time for the people to like this slow paced music.
For your reference I am giving the direct links to the songs (Copy the link and paste it into browser. Simply double click to select the entire link).

1. Ajab Si (4/5) : This song has become my favourite even before the music was released.

2. Dard - E - Disco (3/5) : This is somewhat fast paced song featuring bare body SRK.,%20Marianne,%20Nisha%20&

3. Deewangi Deewangi (3/5) : I think this song is the one which casts actors like ( Salman, Saif, Sanjay Dutt, Amitab, etc., around 30 of them),%20Udit%20Narayan,%20Shreya%20Ghoshal,%20Sunidhi%20Chauhan%20&

4. Main Agar kahoon (3.5/5) : This is one of the best melody songs i've ever heard with fantastic lyrics. "main agar kahoon, tumsa hasee kayanath mein nahi hain koi"

5. Jag Soona Soona Lage (2/5) : Not upto the expectations. I did not like this song. Dont go for it.

6. Dhoom Taana (2/5) : No comments on this song. This is one of the worst composed songs i've ever heard in SRK movies. Its better not to discuss about it. Don't try to download this song and waste ur time.

7. Daastan - e- Om Shanti om (4/5) : This song is my favourite after ajab si song. It was well sung by Shaan. Great song in the end. I really liked it.

So here they are, total 7 songs and few remixes. I am not posting remixes links here as i'vent listened to them. If I like them, I would definitely post those links. Overall, there are only 3 or 4 songs which you can enjoy listening.

Also Here are the additional links for your reference :

Microsoft brings computing to Tabletops.

On May29, 2007 - Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the company’s first surface computing product, called Microsoft Surface – an innovation that will change the way people shop, dine, entertain and live and is expected to be released in November 2007. The launch of Microsoft Surface marks the beginning of a new technology category and a user-interface revolution. Surface, Microsoft’s first surface computer, provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural hand gestures, touch and physical objects.

Surface is a horizontal display on a table-like form which has the intuitive user interface works without a traditional mouse or keyboard, allowing people to interact with content and information on their own or collaboratively with their friends and families, just like in the real world. Surface is a 30-inch display in a table-like form factor that small groups can use at the same time. From digital finger painting to a virtual concierge, Surface brings natural interaction to the digital world in a new and exciting way.

“With Surface, we are creating more intuitive ways for people to interact with technology,” Ballmer said. “We see this as a multibillion dollar category, and we envision a time when surface computing technologies will be pervasive, from tabletops and counters to the hallway mirror. Surface is the first step in realizing that vision.”

Surface computing, which Microsoft has been working on for a number of years, features four key attributes:

  • Direct interaction. Users can actually “grab” digital information with their hands, interacting with content by touch and gesture, without the use of a mouse or keyboard.
  • Multi-touch. Surface computing recognizes many points of contact simultaneously, not just from one finger like a typical touch-screen, but up to dozens of items at once.
  • Multi-user. The horizontal form factor makes it easy for several people to gather around surface computers together, providing a collaborative, face-to-face computing experience.
  • Object recognition. Users can place physical objects on the surface to trigger different types of digital responses, including the transfer of digital content.

Does God need REST??

Brian Lara : Sachin Tendulkar was a peerless batsman with a lot more to offer. Lara, Test cricket's leading scorer with 11,294 runs, regarded Tendulkar the best batsman he ever watched despite the prolific success of Australian captain Ricky Ponting and South African Jacques Kallis. Lara said: "For me, the best batsman in the world is Sachin Tendulkar. I admire Jacques Kallis' consistency and Ricky Ponting, with the purple patch he's going though. Everybody gets 15 minutes of fame. But if there's one person I've admired over a 15-year period, it's definitely Sachin."

Dhoni on the Sachin's Retirement : "When you talk about a temple there has to be mention of God, just like when you talk of cricket you have to talk of Sachin Tendulkar."

The finest compliment must be that bookmakers would not fix the odds - or a game - until Tendulkar was out.

Earlier this year Sachin was being put down as an ageing liability, now many are saying that he has at least two years left in him.

The retirement debate peaked in March this year right after India's disastrous exit at the World Cup that prompted former Australian captain Ian Chappell to come out and say undesirable, harsh statements about sachin.

He said Sachin was playing for all the wrong reasons and should consider quitting.

Chappell said in a column that if Sachin were to look in a mirror and asked the question;" Mirror, mirror on the wall should I retire?" The answer would be; "Yes."

Sanjay Manjrekar accused Sachin of being afraid of failure and therefore choosing to stay out of competitions even when he was actually fit to play.

Over the past couple of years even the fans have been equally changing their opinions about sachin, when it comes to their beloved Sachin.

"Well I think if I can score 90 in most of the games and the team wins I will be very happy. It's not all about scoring 100's although I would like too but if I can get 90 and the team wins I will be very happy," said Tendulkar.

On Wednesday, it was like the Tendulkar of the old, batting like a man reborn, looking to answer his critics time and time again not with the words but with the bat. The way he bats these days tells us that he is enjoying each and every moment in cricket. Not bothered about centuries, he was freely moving his feet like what he used to do in 90s and early 2000s. He has been in a great form throught this natwest series. The one incident that made me feel happy is when he was given out at 99, he had a small chuckle on his face while walking back to the pavillion. That tells us he's not gonna worry about future records which he has had enough of them where others can only dream of.

I felt very sad when i read the news or rumours about sachin retiring ODI's. We should leave this decision to sachin whether he wants to quit or not. But he has given even more than what INDIA could've asked for. So, we cant just debate among ourselves about the GODS decision. I am sure he's well aware of his responsiblities and whats expected by all cricket lovers from him. All the good things will come to an end at sometime or the other, but that day will be a sad day in cricket history when he quits ODI. I think each and every cricket lover will shed their tears because they'll never be able to see a batsman who has been playing for almost two decades and still he's a terror for all the teams around the world. There will be no another Sachin Tendulkar in this game. None can replace him. I grew up looking at him and he has been a role model for every Indian kid out there who starts playing cricket. Its not so easy to giveup anything which we have been attached since 18 years. I am glad to hear that sachin is not retiring in ODIs, in fact INDIA need Sachin in ODIs. I dont give a damn about what critics feel about these comments.

Finally we Sachin Lovers wish that he must play till 2011 world cup, All Indians are very desperate to see 2011 WorldCup in the hands of Little Champion.

Come on Sachin !! Give INDIA 2011 WORLDCUP. We support you, in all your ups and downs.

The whole nation of INDIA want to say only one thing
"Sachin, You have made us feel proud"

The GAME is not over..

A great night for INDIA as they leveled the series after being trailed by 3-1. Its a good comeback team INDIA. At last Dravid's gang has got the interest of people in INDIA after INDIA's defeat in the worldcup. Lets wait for more cricket action in the last match of this wonderful series. The momentum is with INDIA, they should play with the same attitude which they've been showing in last 3 matches. Indian Batting is slowly gaining stream. Top order is in tremendous form. Sachin, Sourav, Gambhir, Yuvraj and Dravid not to forget Utappa all are in great form. I want to mention about Utappa here, because he has never played a single ODI in this series, also he has never batted at No.7 before. I think his 47 off 33 balls will remain as the greatest innings in his career. As Dravid mentioned, Team INDIA must focus on the final overs, as they were conceding at a rate of 10 Runs per over in the last games. So, the great LORDS will host the final of this great series, Hoping the three of our biggies Sachin, Dravid, and Ganguly will make the memorable impression in ENGLAND, as this tour is going to be the final tour for them. I would like to say one thing to TEAM INDIA....
CHAK DE INDIA, and win the NATWEST Trophy.

supposed to be a JOKE:

A Junior Software engineer, a Senior Software engineer and their Project Manager are on their way to a meeting. On their way through a park, they come across a wonder lamp. They rub the lamp and a ghost appears. The ghost says, "Normally, one is granted three wishes but as you are three, I will allow one wish each". So the eager Junior Software engineer shouted, I want the first wish. I want to be in the Bahamas , on a fast boat and have no worries. "Pfufffff" and he was gone. Now the Senior Software engineer could not keep quiet and shouted " I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls, plenty of food and cocktails. "Pfufffff" and he was also gone.
The Project Manager calmly said," I want these two idiots back in the office after lunch at 1.30pm"

Moral of the story is:
"Always allow the boss to speak first"

These are some Corporate Lessons which are kind of 'A' Graded.

Lesson 1:

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel that you have on" After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her 800 dollars and leaves. Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets back to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower, "Who was that?" "It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "Did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk in time with your stakeholders, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

Lesson 2:

A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road, he stopped and offered her a lift, which she accepted. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to open and reveal a lovely leg. The priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
The nun looked at him and immediately said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"
The priest was flustered and apologized profusely. He forced himself to remove his hand. Changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg again.
The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?"
Once again the priest apologized "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."
Arriving at the convent, the nun got out gave him a meaningful glance and went on her way.
On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to retrieve a bible and looked up Psalm 129.
It Said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."

Moral of the story: Always be well informed in your job, or you might miss a great opportunity.


A man and his wife in court getting a divorce. The problem was who should get custody of the child.
The wife jumped up and said: 'Your Honor. I brought the child into the world with pain an labor. She should be in my custody.
The judge turns to the husband and says ' What do you have to say in your defense?
The man sat for a while contemplating then slowly rose.
'Your Honor. If I put a dollar in a vending machine and a Pepsi comes out.. whose Pepsi is it .. the machine's or mine?

The Perfect Couple :

Once upon a time, a perfect man and a perfect woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect. One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve, this perfect couple was driving their perfect car along a winding road, when they noticed someone at the side of the road in distress. Being the perfect couple, they stopped to help.
There stood Santa Claus with a huge bundle of toys. Not wanting to disappoint any children on the eve of Christmas, the perfect couple loaded Santa and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving along delivering the toys.
Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and Santa Claus had an accident. Only one of them survived the accident.
Question: Who was the survivor ?(Scroll down for the answer. Trust me, it's worth it)

Answer: The perfect woman survived. She's the only one who really existed in the first place. Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus and there is no such thing as a perfect man.
( Women stop reading here. For you, that is the end of the joke. Men keep scrolling )

So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the woman must have been driving. This explains why there was a car accident.
( Men Keep scrolling )

By the way, if you're a woman and you're still reading, this illustrates another point: Women are curious and never listen.

Some Funny Jokes of Children :-

Supposed to be an 'A' graded :

Lil' Johnny goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way. I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism. Mommy is the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you The People. The nanny (maid),well, consider her The Working Class. Your baby brother, we'll call him The Future. Now go think about this and see if it makes sense."

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying and runs to his room only to find that his diapers are very soiled.
So the little boy goes to his parents' room. Mom is sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he looks through the peephole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand what politics is now."
"Good son, tell me in your own words then what politics are."

The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit."

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. "Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer; she's a lawyer,' or 'that's Michael. He's a doctor.'"
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher. She's dead."

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.
The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, "Take all You want. God is watching the apples!"

Smiling after reading this is not mandatory!!!! :)
