Ladies and Gentelmen !!
WE are proud to Have with us the Guy who Probably was missed by millions and millions of bloggers across the world galaxy Universe .The guy who created ripples in the blogoshpere by his ever entertaining posts . Whose blog became the only source of entertainment for all the people in the times when the parasite boredom creeped in .
Let us Welcome the amazing ,ever stunning
**Drums Rolling **
Phew !! Its really strange that it takes a build up as lame as the one above to take a blogger like me out from hibernation . Self-Motivation , u see 😀 . Every one Needs motivation . And when there is no one to motivate u . You have do all on your own . Now that cheer girls have stopped Chanting my name let me come to the main idea of the post.
This has been my longest absence from the blogosphere 😦 . I really missed all Your blogs and i guess u must have missed my valuable ,enlightning and entertaining posts too 😀 . Never mind ! Now that i am back , your Ultimate source of Entertainment is back Online :P.
A Lot has happened in a span of month . Yet it seems so vague that i will have to search for words to fill it up here . Sometimes i feel that the world has narrowed down much within a time of 2 months .Home to office , Office to home . Ofcourse they pay me but it still seems so odd . Huh !! May be i need more time to adjust with my Korporate Konnection 😛 . Anyways i dont intend to write my tantrums out here 😛 . So lets talk something interesting . Cricket ??? . WHy not !! . Well, India creating history in NewZeland by winning a series after 41 years is not what i am going to talk about .:P They are creating “history” far too often now that it has started to become little monotonous now 😉 . The interesting thing is that HIPL (Hewitt internal peremiar league) is going on at my office 😛 . The good news is that my team (vennila cricket kuzhu ) is through to super six . Now how good would it feel to hit a six as the winning shot 😛 . Thats what i did and my team members have found their new hero 😀 . Well , you see i have a natural flair for the game . Lucky that i have a blog where i can blow my own trumpet 😛 . And we have formed Vennila kabbadi kuzhu also 😛 . I am sure we would be atleast runner up in that . It seems there are only 2 teams that have registered inluding my team 😛 .
I have regained my old love and passion for books 😛 . Although i dont get much time but still i have been making it a point to read atleast 30-40 pages daily .Currently reading The White Tiger and now i am able to realize why people were going ga-ga over this book . Bought Robin cook’s Invasion . Anyone here who has read that book ?? A short review would be fine in the comment section 😛 . Talking about books , Yesterday one of my collegues came across my blog .She was hell-bent on insisting me that IT field is not my cup of tea. .According to her I should ,perhaps , write a book . Now How crazy is that ?
And Whats all this about Rakhi sawant Getting married On NDTV IMAGINE . I mean Is she On her minds or what . I knew she was crazy but this is too much .I need to figure out a theory which proves that Length of dress u wear is directly proportional to the size of brain 😛 . And May be now NDTV IMAGINE can flaunt with a big advertizement Rakhi ka SWAYAMWAR – Reality show ka Baap :D. The show would be the height of crazyness 😛 .
Other day i got this pic through a mail –
ROFLMAO !! Whats wrong with the cat ?? may be u can write a one liner 😉
Well , Thats all i have to bore Entertain u today ..
see u soon again .
Adios Amigos !!!

No surprises .I am not going to write anything new , infact i have got nothing new :P.
First of all I would like to congratulate Ar Rahman and Resul Pookutty for bringing oscars 😛 to our country ,something that we badly missed every year. Each and every indian would be proud for what they have managed to achieve . Frankly speaking i never thought we would get oscars 🙄 .
But ,when A.R.Rehman got nominated i was sure that he would get one atleast . He is a true genius . Starting from Roja for which he won national award ,he has never turned back . The magic he creates in every movie still amazes me. I can name quite a few movies which ran in theaters just due to his music 😛 .Kollywood -> Bollywood ->Hollywood , Is there anything left unconquered .
Long live rahman . Jai Ho Rahman !!
Anyways, I would like to put forward some questions . Give me your honest opinion 😛
Both the songs in slumdog were good . But dont you think he (rahman) has infact , given us far better songs in the past ??
No wonder slumdog won the award for best cinematography , I really liked the way the movie was presented ,but did it deserve the award for best motion picture ???
Did You know who Resul pookutty was before he won the oscars ?? (i mean i am not a movie buff so i wasnt aware of him )
okay i will stop it here .You see, time constraint is a big problem . 102 posts still unread on my reader . My valuable comment will be on all ur blogs within a day 😉 .Extremly sorry for the delay 😦

After almost 2 years of speculation among the cricket fans ganguly finally decides to call it a day from test cricket. Yes , but that’s only after the India Australia series gets over . Anyways this is the best time he could do it .Considering the current Australian team as the weakest ever ,wouldn’t it be great for the former captain to end his career on a winning note .
Speaking of his career in test cricket ,Prince of kolkatta had the best starts any player would dream of . A century in his debut test against england in 1996 marked the emergence of one of the best players india has produced not to forget that he has been the most successful Indian captain abroad .
Ganguly has been unable to keep a permanent spot in the Indian squad ever since the greg-ganguly saga in 2005 . There has been a constant pressure on him from former players , anit-ganguly cricket fans and ofcourse the media . Everyone knows the hype that these news channels create and its a feast for them when it comes to cricket. Media has been a little too harsh on him . Ok He was not playing well , but that doesn’t mean u will make his life even more miserable . Even a week back i saw a poll in one of the news channels
Would u want the senior players to retire one by one or in a single go ???
now Isnt it a silly question ?? …. of course there are lots of lame polls like this but this seemed more off track . Who are Media to decide when a player should retire ?? People forget these were the once main pillars of indian cricket team when batting was considered the main strength of indian cricket team . Dont they even have a personal choice of ending their career at their own will .
Being a Die hard sachin fan its depressing to hear people who have done nothing advising sachin to retire . I mean its totally weird to give advice to a guy who has over 25000 runs in international cricket ,who is considered the best next only to the legend sir donald bradman .I just wish people would let players decide themselves If u cant support them during their lean patch plz dont make it worse .
Anyways i have deviated from the topic i guess ,coming once again to ganguly .
|One-Day Career Batting and Fielding (1989/90-2007/08)
|Test Career Batting and Fielding (1996-2008)
You can have even more detailed view of his career right here .
- Captained India in a record 49 Test matches
- Led India to a record 21 Test wins
- His test average has never been less than 40.
- Hold the record of most 200+ ODI partnerships (6 times) along with Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting.
- Holds the record, shared with Sachin Tendulkar, for most 1st wicket ODI partnerships of 175+ runs (7 times).
- Holds the record, shared with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, for the second highest score by an Indian cricketer in an ODI — 183, against Sri Lanka in 1999.
- Held the record, shared with Sachin Tendulkar, for the highest first wicket partnership for India in an ODI match, 258, against Kenya in 2001. This record was bettered by Sri Lankan opening pair of Jayasuriya and Tharanga in 2006 at Headingley.
- Was involved in the first 300 run ODI partnership with Rahul Dravid.
- Sixth on the all time list with 31 man of the match awards.
- He is also the only player to win 4 consecutive man of the match awards in ODIs.
- India’s most successful ODI captain.
- First Indian to score an ODI century against Australia in Australia.
- Highest ODI runs scorer in the world (in a calendar year) in 1997,1999,2000.
- Third in the list of hitting maximum number of sixes in ODIs.
- Second in the list of highest number of centuries in a single calendar year ever. 7 centuries in 2000.
Now thats a decent ,perhaps more than a decent record and i remember his one day average at about 46 once before his bad patch started .
You support him or not but the moments he gave us will be fresh for every cricket fan . i dont think anyone will ever forget the special moment when india won the natwest series in England . The next best highlight of the finals after the matching winning partership between yuvaraj and kaif was the way sourav reacted by removing his Tshirt and waved it 😀 .
I am sure if not for the resentment around him he would have at least hoped to play for a couple of years after all he was back in form after sitting out of the team for a year and a half . Otherwise why would a man who said 2 weeks back would suddenly make a decision to quit .
Anyways I just wish him Good luck for his future .

Well , Everyones love is finally here . Apple’s Iphone 3g probably has been the most anticipated phone ever . The long wait was finally over yesterday as the people were able to hold something that they wanted the most .
Two versions of iphone have been realeased one with 8 gb memory and the other one 16 gb and they cost around RS 31000 and RS 36000 respectively . Well, that might shock you as the iphone costs in US just around 200 $ which is around 8000 Rupees.
The phone comes either with airtel or vodaphone subscription similar to AT&T in US , which means that once u buy it u cannot change the network . Ofcourse , you can always unlock the phone but be ready to loose your warranty 😛 .
I read an interesting post by Soham yesterday who has written his experiece with iphone till . You can read it full here . HE has mentioned why he loves his iphone so much but the interesting thing which caught my attention was some of the limitations he mentioned like no sms fowrwarding, no camera zoom , cant transfer files from bluetooth 😛 (wonder why they have kept bluetooth then ) etc .
Most importantly ,the word 3g itself is quite meaningless in india as there are no 3g networks available here in india . And i dont see it coming any soon 😛 . So personally i dont feel ITs right time to buy iphone .
I have always wanted to buy an iphone ever since it was launched in US but then i guess the price is a big hurdle for me ,perhaps it would be for almost every middle class inidan . I am just waiting for all the craze to get over . I am sure the price would drop below 20k mark soon then i can lay my hands on it 😀 . People who are seriously interested in buying iphone at a cheaper price can either wait like me or can settle with this for now 😆 .
iphone vs Sex 😆
