R n a d m o

Weekend, was good fun, spent good time sleeping and watching television :-)
Ashes is going English way..... :-)

On Saturday, for the first time used Metro for going to Connaught Place, its was sooooo good going it that way, in 30 mins flat I was standing in the middle of CP, it felt soo good, I went there after a long long time, and in this mall culture, CP is still my favorite shopping place, it always brings back lots of memories :-) there is hardly any shop where I've not been to.

Life is a movie.
You are the hero.
Give it a happy ending.

sometimes I wannna grow long hair... like Mark Robinson had some years ago, and also waana sport a beard…..thick beard, and the problem is that I don't have patience :-(

for a change I'm sporting a French beard ..after a long long time ;-), dunno how long it will last, may b 2 days?? :-)

Its 121/4 in 35 overs, Kaif just gone after making 65 off 122 balls, damn are we playing against world champions?? can't they maintain a strike rate of 75-80?? , bludy they all now play to cement their place for next match, that’s it. they r struggling against an attack which went for 397(44 overs) in their last match !! and next man in is Dhoni, damn after 4 down our wicketkeeper comes to bat, where are the batsmen??

and I won't b surprised if Mr.Chappel resigns after Videocon cup.

Cricket Cricket Cricket

30 July::
SL 112/5 in 30 overs , still Jayasuriya in company of Mahroof managed to steal victory from the jaws of defeat.

3 Aug::

SL 95/6 in 26 overs, still Jayawardene and Chandana won the match for their country.

7 Aug::

WI 112/6 in 24 overs, Ramdin almost won it for WI, scoring at almost 6 per over from 112/6 is incredible.

So problem area remains to be 5th bowler; in all matches India held the edge till regular bowlers bowled, and the moment 5th bowler( Sehwag/Ganguly/Yuvraj/Raina) was pressed into action, momentum shifted drastically.

Well, still I think playing 3 seamers(that too all 3 left armers) is not a very good idea. How abt playing 2 seamers and 2 spinners and JP Yadav as allrounder.

My team for final.

1.Sehwag -- highly unreliable but can win the game single handedly on his day.
2. JP Yadav -- he has opened for Railways many times, so can be tried here.
3. Kaif -- he needs time to settle down, and can handle moving ball better.
4. Dravid -- From here he can bind the inning.
5. VenuGopal -- he is another sensible young lad, and knows how to apply himself rather than big-match-pressure getting better of him.
6. Yuvraj -- he can't be dropped but also can't be relied on (thats y Venu comes above him)
7. Dhoni -- he is DYNAMITE, he can't be kept quite, no matter on which position he comes.
8. Pathan
9. Harbhajan
10. Zaheer
11. Kumble

Raina 12th man.


Btw, Kasprowicz's hand was not touching the handle when ball brushed it.

Friday was dad's last day at office, I planned to attend the official retirement function long ago, took a leave on friday but could not go there as was busy doing preparation for evening get-together at home, got tied up coordinating with caterer, tent-wala and arranging other miscellaneous stuff.


Sunday, we planned to watch a movie but ended up at Dargah of "Sufi Saint Hazrat Khwaja Syed Nizamuddin Aulia", it was nice but the lane that leads to dargah was dingy and fully encroached by shopkeepers. Also visted mazaar of Mirza Ghalib and Aamir Khusro.

Same day met my sister's neighbors, they have a 3 yr old boy.

sis: "Aapka naam kya hai?"
boy: "oooudi"
we: {* surprised but thought name must be Aditya or something like that and nick name addy jaisa kuch hoga *}
sis: "Mumma ka kya naam hai?
boy: "lambojineee"
we:{* more surprised n curious *}.
Sis: "beta papa ka kya naam hai?"


Lets see, how Mr.Chappell accommodates Dada and Laxman in the line up, I wish not at the cost of Raina and Venu. I think its time to rest Kaif and Yuvi.
