If I was Kalmadi..

Suresh Kalmadi

First, I would have never openly challenged the media, and point out a particular news channel (I meant Times Now) for bringing up an unwanted controversy. Before reacting to the media and stating all the allegations as rubbish, I would have ensured that there is no fault with my colleagues and the allegations are baseless.

As a preliminary step, I would have clearly understood the meaning of "Common Wealth" and that it is not a common wealth creating opportunity for my colleagues or members of any of the associated bodies of the Organizing Committee. Even if anybody misunderstands the real meaning of CW, I would have strictly instructed them to wipe clean their plates after eating. I'll stand by my colleagues only if they scam decently and not overdo it, seriously I wouldn't mind them sharing the "Common Wealth," but there is a limit.

The Special Document!

This post was inspired by various real incidents which happened in my life. Being an ‘Aam Admi’, I also had to be a part of numerous documentation processes, natural obligations of being a citizen of India! Have seen a lot of movies in which corruption has been portrayed as a social villain (or villainess – gender equality should be there in everything!), I always wondered why this evil character is over exaggerated in movies, as I never found anything wrong with the system, until I experienced it for myself.


Sorry Lalit Modi , You Just Puked it Out!

This is for all who might or might not have noticed the recent tweets by the former IPL commissioner Lalit K Modi, and who might or might not have heard about the news of omitting Kings Eleven Punjab and Rajasthan Royals from IPL 4.

This is what Mr Modi tweeted (as copy pasted from Yahoo News!): “The BCCI has shown its true colours, one set of rules for themselves and another set for the others…Members go to meetings and listen to Diktat of President and President elect. if you open your mouth you are thrown out. This cannot go on…All illegal things done by CSK amd its owners have been over looked by BCCI. Why ? Who is running the show. What has Srinivasan got om them.”


The Best Sambar Contest!

I've been having the same Sambar for many years now. I need it to taste differently, but I still need Sambar.
 Do you have the perfect recipe for making the best Sambar for me?



First, thanks to the friend who forwarded the email describing this cruelty and to you who is reading this post now (and hopefully spread the message amongst your friends). 

Thankamma and four blind children during the press conference
This is the story about Thankamma, from a small town called Karunagapally in Kerala. She is the mother of four, and the unfortunate part is that all four are blind by birth. Eldest amongst her children is her son and other three are daughters. Only blessing to her family is the knowledge in singing and the voice of her children. 


CWG Filth and the Filthiest!

This post is meant for those foreigners who complain about the filthy facilities offered in the CWG games village, those participants who pulled out of the games complaining the facilities and the media that is still doing the deepest autopsy possible on CWG . Thanks to the friend who forwarded this mail.
Is this for what you wanted a clean and shining games village?


Half-Boiled CWG Theme Song is Now Hard-Boiled!

XIX CWG games has been there in the headlines so far, not for good reasons though. It all started with the news channels started to howl over the delayed progress in developing the infrastructure, which includes the track and field in Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, the swimming pool complex, and the ITDC towers in the games village. Making the shame more vivid was that most of the completed works many has collapsed and are continuously reworked on; vinyl flooring at the weightlifting venue is peeling off, the shooting range embankments collapsed, water seepage in the boxing stadium, granite pavements in Khan Market are re-paved as it became slippery beyond control and further humiliation happened when the swimming pool flooded!


A Whore called Cricket !

Kapil Dev with World Cup
Team India with T20 World Cup
Indian Cricket got it's most ecstatic orgasm in the form of 1983 World Cup and another elated one in the form of T20 World Cup in 2007. In its international life history, cricket has had its own ups and downs, but cricket has never ever had any sort of arousal dis-functions so far. The sweet sound of the leather hitting the middle of the willow, has been the heart beat of millions of Indians and followers across the globe. It might have got turned off due to a few stinky incidents behind the scenes, like the match fixing scandals which ended the cricketing life's as well as the 'real lives' of a few in the game, but never did it effect cricket in moving ahead.


The Cinnamon Challenge

The Cinnamon challenge in which an individual has to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon without inhaling the cinnamon or vomiting. As what Wikipedia says, despite several video documented attempts, a few seemed to beat this challenge. Well what I'm concerned is not about the real cinnamon challenge, as I don't have any intentions to accept such challenges, but about the cinnamon challenge that our households are facing.


MNP-o-phobia and service providers

Mobile number portability or MNP, as we all know is what that helps customers to switch operators without changing the existing number. The service presently available across the globe (minus India obviously) allows the customer to change the service provider, if he feels discontent over the existing or if somebody else is offering a better service, and also letting him free of the hassle of spreading the 'change of number news' amongst his contacts. Moreover, MNP could be done irrespective of whether it is a GSM network or a CDMA network. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) have divided the servicing area into two zones and has given license to two companies to carry out the MNP operations: MNP Interconnection Telecom Solutions (MNPITS) and Syniverse Technologies India. 

The Indians who Grand Slammed!

Tennis is believed to have originated in the country in and around the 1880s, when the courts were restricted to the British elites. Later on there came the championships like the Punjab Lawn Tennis Championship in Lahore (Now in Pakistan), the Bengal Lawn tennis Championship in Calcutta and the All India Tennis Association Championships. The British dominated these championships in the early years and the first Indian to win a championship in an Indian Tournament was Mohammed Saleem, who won the Punjab Lawn Tennis Championship in 1915. The All India Lawn Tennis Association (AILTA), stationed in Lahore was formed in 1920. That was about the history of Tennis in the country.

Kerala goes Hollywood!

Bakel fort

Kerala, the God's own country as labelled by the state's tourism promotion council, is not just a tourist's paradise anymore. The picturesque locations are not just pretty sights and refreshing vacation spots for the tourists, the state is gradually rising to stardom with many of the landscapes being featured in Bollywood movies. The trend of featuring locations in Kerala in Bollywood is thought to have bud when the acclaimed director from the south, Mani Ratnam, got the dubbed version of his movie Bombay in Tamil to Bollywood.
