~ I have been getting a lot of mails from people with attachments containing an entire bio data of Anna Hazare. The only Annas these people knew either dated Enrique or served the best Madrasi filter coffee, but thanks, I knew about Mr. Hazare a long before the Lokpal farce; oops fast.
~ I don't think half of my Facebook 'friends' attending the 'online fast' have even gone through the draft of the bill. I mean why would you want Nobel prize winners and Magsaysay award winners to head a committee which has absolute powers and zero accountability. I mean these daft scientists and writers are the barmiest kinds of people you would ever come across. I agree you need clean people, but a little pragmatism would not do any harm.
~ I happened to catch the IPL opening ceremony on television. I agree it wasn't spectacular but to have every newspaper attribute the unattractiveness of the opening ceremony to the lack of Mr. Modi's presence in the IPL is giving the genius of a man a little undue credit. One newspaper even attributed the lack of DLF maximums to the fact that Modi isn't part of IPL anymore.
~ The Kochi team has given us a great lesson in general knowledge. For all of us who thought that Kochi was a part of Kenya, we are reminded by Mr Dhaval Shah that it is Kochi Tuskers Kerala.
~ Talking about the tuskers, they have the awesomest team ever. In Sreesanth and Sir Ravindra Jadeja they have two proven match winners. Mahela and VVS are the quickest run getters in this format of the game. And in Gomez they have unearthed the all rounder India was looking for, for such a ling time.
