Pujara and pant duo- nightmare for Aussies

What a start for the Indian team. Story started from pujara and ended to pant turing this duo nightmare for Aussies in the day time. Rishabh Pant became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score a century in England – he achieved that in his third Test match. On 66, he has a shot at owning that same record in Australia, bettering Farokh Engineer who made 89 in 1967. A noticeable feature of his batting in Read more…

Capitalism and welfare mentality

A guy looked at the pictures of Vijay Mallya and Nirav Modi today and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that useless scams cost. I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families of investigators who have been spending months trying to decode their network, it fed the government service aspirants after vacancies in investigator posts have to be increased to make way for more Read more…

Why are people not passionate?

Why are people not passionate. People are not passionate because passions are embarrassing. You could be a nerd for reading too many books, wasted for playing too much video game, spend thrift if you like to travel, geeky if you spend all your time in front of the computer and good for nothing if you watch too many movies. Passions are unique to individuals, and more often than other people wouldn’t get you. People will Read more…

The high

The problem of our times is that we are trying to live life by the rules laid down 20 years ago. Get a good degree, you are settled for life. Find a good job, you are settled for life. Start a business, you are settled for life. Our lives, the circumstances and the world we live in is changing faster than anybody imagined. Changes that make people redundant very fast. Changes that shut businesses down Read more…

The legendary Bhagat Singh

‘Bhagat Singh’ the name itself is enough to fill us with a sense of patriotism and pride. But even after 81 years of his immortality most of us perceive him as a hot-headed youngster. Have you ever wondered there were thousands of youngsters who fought for liberty but why this man still dominates the saga of struggle. A parallel to Gandhi, an extremist according to imperialist Britishers, a dictator according to some fellow revolutionaries and an epitome of valor, Bhagat Singh is Read more…

VICTORY FOR INDIA!!!

India beat Pakistan and there is nothing new as it has been a routine for us now. For all the hype, a damp squib in the end, a rather one-sided contest dominated totally by the Indians. The only time Pakistan seemed to compete was when Malik and Babar were repairing the damage after the early loss of the openers. Once that partnership was broken, Pakistan were never really in the game. 162 was never going to Read more…

DEPRESSION: A NEW TREND

So many people I know are dealing with silent or active form of depression. I even saw somebody recently say that ‘depression’ is the new cool. As much as I wanted to interrupt and offer a point of view, I didn’t. Why is this generation so depressed after all, and what can we do about it? There must be a million articles around all such things but that will not prevent me from sharing my Read more…

VIRAT KOHLI: ONE MAN ARMY FOR A REASON

Virat scored a ton. Its just like a cup of tea for him now. India have tilted the pendulum back, walking away with enough momentum to boast. England have been battered mentally; after holding the aces for the first half of the day, they’ve miraculously managed to throw it away. Ashwin has managed to hold on to Cook’s number, finding out ways that keep getting more beautiful to the eye. But the day goes to Read more…

Kargil Vijay diwas: A tale of triumph

Bodies battered and minds shattered; They carried on ‘coz Victory mattered. The heights stay frozen, not with ice; But by their blood and sacrifice Sons and fathers, like you and me; Conquered the peaks and set them free Too many did we lose, too many did we bleed; But they cared not for their own need Fight they did till their last breath out; Without a question, nor a doubt Tear soaked letters did their Read more…
