Well, sometimes work and most of the times laziness kept me away
from blogging, moreover as Indian team is not playing any matches
so ..... :-)
Anyways I'm not interested in SA-NZ series, I find both teams
very very unattractive. And less said abt Aus-B'desh series
the better.
hmm I'm looking forward to Ind-WI and Pak-Eng series.
That'll be a real test for our new heroes.


After we were through with all forms etc, friend who assisted me
in filing tax-returns, now you are officially a 'NRI'.

5 mahine mein NRI, kya bakwaas hai. I hate these rules n
regulations and distasteful terminologies used.


San Francisco
San Leandro
San Diego
San Mateo
San Benito
San Bernardino
San Joaquin
San Luis Obispo

no wonder here people call me 'SAN dip'


Movies watched...

1) Hide and Seek
2) Bandit Queen


The King returns, I would love to see his exquisite cover drives, square-leg flicks again and again..., lets hope this time his captainship brings back the charm in Caribbean cricket.

Another one on Cricket

No I won't be watching any movies in weekdays from now, may be will watch one or at most two on weekends only. Btw howz this 'Beneras'? any idea?? ;-)

Again a major top-order failure, this has been a routine since Pakistan tour, but each time one player (mostly Dhoni/Yuvi/Pathan/Dravid) wins the match and that covers for the failures of others.

As I said earlier, where is the batting bench strength??

hmm..I feel Chappell’s policy of giving repeated chances to players is giving wrong signals to the senior guys like Sehwag n Kaif,

This policy has done a wonders for youngsters like Sreesanth, Raina and RP Singh but for seniors its not working.

Remember, Gambhir was dropped coz he was not able to convert is 20s n 30s to something big.

So, its high time Kaif n Sehwag should be dropped...but question remains where is the batting bench strength? :-)


Just read on cricinfo that, Afridi has announced retirement from test cricket :-)
He says he wants to concentrate on ODI only, is he serious or its just another gimmick, only time will tell.

I think he is following the footsteps of Imran and Miandad(who took retirement a number of times only to make comebacks :-).

His love with Pakistan's captainship contender Younis Khan is an open secret :-)… so it won't surprise me a bit if he too is nursing ambitions of captainship.

After Weekend

Another monday morning, hmm..boss is back from NY, so loads of work expected in coming days.

btw, watched just 5 movies on weekend :-)

Sins - Crimes For Passions -- total bakwaas

Khamosh Paani -- very very touching movie, made with lot of heart.

Coma -- another nice thriller, worth watching.

Zinda -- another total bakwaas...

Aprahan -- hmm good one, somehow director couldn't end it properly, just like Gangajal.

Before weekend

Phewww..another weekend approaching, and I always approach weekend with lot of childlike zeal n enthusiasm, I love Sundays but only till 8pm, coz after that my mind starts making schedule for coming week.

Well, last weekend was fun, we watched Ice Age - The meltdown in the nearby mulitiplex, movie was fun, just perfect for a Saturday evening.


Read a very interesting n though provoking one liner::-

"People who believe in love at first sight, can never stop looking."

and I think its true :-)


After a long time, after 3 years I played basketball, and still all muscles of my body are cursing me for that, right shoulder in particular.


In my last post I made an incomplete list of movies watched in past 2.5 months, well, here I have nothing to I end up watching movies on my dear lappy.
In fact here I think here majority of Indians are like that only, normally we people do not have wat we call them….'hobbies' or some other interests to pursue… we end up watching movies, more for the need of killing time.

And "A Cinderella story" is added too.


At last weather is getting better now, otherwise since almost past one month RainGod was doing some sort of weird experiments, it used be bright in the morning, rainy in the noon and cold n windy in evening n nights, now its pleasant, living upto the name of city.


Now sitting on 4-0 lead, Chappel can do some more experiments with the line-up, its high time they accommodate Venugopal Rao in middle order, and also give some rest to Pathan too.


Yesterday visited a bookstore; it was another lil nice experience, though a bit hard to stop my impulsive self from indulging. I did fairly well, and promised it to return back on weekend with wifey.
