My (re)collections


Tiger Circus is in Town………

Ahhhhhhh

Masters at Augusta is finally here. Which will bring the all the hoopla surrounding  Mr.Woods’ transgressions into the front page of main stream media (as if it is not already there!) and hopefully he will answer their endless questions to their satisfaction and start playing Golf once again.

What he did in his personal life is wrong, but still his private matter and it is between him and his family. Most fans will be disappointed with him which is understandable. But for those who said he let their children down, please…..be yourself a hero and rolemodel for your kids and dont expect a sport person or someone else do that job for you.

COMMON SENSE-01

Cricket's Sachin Tendulkar Rockets To Sports Stratosphere →

So where were you when Sachin scored the double century in ODI? will the question everybody will be asking in the future. It is one of the rare moments in cricket history which will be remembered for a quite long time.

Master Stroke

The innings compiled by Sachin was a beauty and never gave a chance to the bowlers. While waiting for his chance to finish final runs at the waning overs he patiently took singles and kept the hard hitting Dhoni at strike. Luckily Dhoni was able to give the strike to SRT in the final over with 4 balls remaining to finish off the 200.

With one swish of the bat, by scoring the ONE run from 199 to 200 he was able to achieve some thing which the modern greats for the last 2961 couldn’t do.

Thriller In Jaipur →

Phew……..might be the right way describe the feeling of the entire cricket watching nation after the one run victory India eked out against the S.Africa.

Though I didn’t watch the entire game, I was able to see the nail-bitingfinal three overs of the game. I’m still puzzled by the tactics used by the Indian skipper. After leaking so many runs still he gave the ball to the under performing Sreesanth who gave up three fours in the critical 48th over. South Africa requiring an improbable 74 from 43 balls and only two wickets in hand I felt it is just a formality to mop up the tail enders. But thanks to the pyrotechnics by Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell it came down to 10 runs in 6 balls. Finally Dhoni woke up and gave the ball to Pravin Kumar who bowled an excellent slow delivery to take out Steyn. Still drama was nor over as the incoming Charl Langeveldt hit three runs and a wide delivery by Pravin, it came down to 1 ball three runs. The game is on.

Now pravin is facing the red hot (If i can say that to the so-called tail-ender) Parnell. Whole stadium is holding their breath and the ball was delivered and Parnell guides it to the third man where Sreesanth to his credit fielded cleanly and threw it to the keeper a little wide but it was enough for Dhoni to dislodge the bails before Parnell make it for two runs to tie the game.

Game set match.

I believe India made an ordinary match into an thriller. It is OK as long as we WIN.

College Days..

The great college days, I started remembering,
Seems like only yesterday I finished engineering.

Seeing my class mates, after somany years,
My eyes were filled with tears,
Everyone has changed a lot,
No one escaped nature’s plot.

Guys who were smart and handsome,
have become bald and buxom,
Girls who used to fill our dreams,
Almost brought out screams.

Saw the girl, whom once I thought as my life,
oops!, today she is somebody else’s wife,
after years, talked to her for a little while,
learned she is happy, that made me smile.

Entered our class’ Mr. Romeo,
Who has played many a cameo
We started teasing him together,
About what all he did to-get-her,

Project reviews to campus interviews,
Nicknames to last bench games,
Cultural rehearsals to love proposals,
Short term crushes to class room blushes.

Everything was fresh in our mind,
Wished life could rewind,
Laughed, played and rejoiced,
Once again we became girls and boys.

Chatting and laughing, we all were in elation,
Till the painful moment of separation
It was time to part,
returned with a heavy heart.

Today life is full of commitments,
And too many worries,
But those cherished moments,
Will live forever in ur memories..

Winter Wonderland……….
Yesterday we had a big snowstorm, today it is bright and cloudless.
No wonder Mark Twain wrote, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.”
