Snowstorm


It was blazing hot day before and today we have yet another snowstorm. True to its unpredictable nature, weather they say is following El Nino factor. Ofcourse, along with global warming. Roads were deadly dangerous on way back from office and it is not many times I pray while driving ;) Picture above taken just before I was approaching my house next left.

If you have been following Cricket, you may have noticed one or two minnows in each league group. I dont understand why Scotland, Bangladesh, Dutch, Canada should be asked to play with big teams to humiliate themselves. If at all they should be competing, shouldnt they be put to test each other and the best of them advance to next round. At least they will have better confidence and spared from humiliation match and again?!

I was watching this movie 'Unhitched' yesterday and it reminded me of our bollywood movie Pardes where SRK snatches the bride right under wedding 'mandap'. Amazing how director changes the script mid-movie to potray the nice groom as bad guy towards the end just so that our hero can win the bride. Yeah I know it happens in movies but cannot they have better script especially when they have enough budget?

Reports of more than 50 policemen being killed by maoist insurgents yesterday in eastern India was sad and shocking. Magnitude of such violence time and again just shows how ultras are getting more and more sophisticated. It is year 2007 and these militants are still hiding in jungles training to kill people. Wonder if there no tomorrow for such idiots?

Many of you know about statcounter.com but I am starting to like the new features so much that I spend quite a time investigating my website thru projects offered by this site. Quite interesting I would say. Try it if you haven't already.

I was very excited yesterday to hear that Sonu Nigam and Asha Bhosle are going to be here for musical concert. Excitement was short lived when I read today that Sonu has backed off apparently due to him not being promoted over Asha Bhosle. Stars and thier antics.

Talking about singers, I really wish Himesh Reshamiya concentrate on his music rather than tear apart his horrible vocal cord song after song. Honestly, I like his music and even loved his few songs. But he has to control his excitement and sing only when needed.

And yes, Sanjaya Malakar is still winning. This time I wont wine about his staying back. Let people and his fate decide ;)

Have a nice weekend!!

Yashita : I like the snow, just not the driving on it ;)

Mann : I did hear abt nandigram. that was sad and I am pretty sure it was result of our officials not doing thier homework on the effect of displacement of poor people.

It is quite easy for them to draw plans about zones and all, but how about putting some thoughts on people effected. Even if officials have some compensation to displaced populace, what remains of compensation after it passes hands down the hierarchy is a pitance.

Not many of us bother about such real burning issues. And that is a bigger pity.

Mumbai Guy said...

Ishi : lolz. sorry you had bad time yesterday. I was almost about to watch match but my previous appointments did not spare time for sit-in watch. It is just disgusting to see India lose. I take my words back on minnows tag. ;)

Priya : You must be somewhere down Virginia. It was still cold yesterday but today is better.

Mann : Telling you it is all part of setup ;) Just so that pak do not feel bad about going out. But hey, who knows if there is lot of betting, zimbabwe would pull off major upset!!

priya said...

MG: I am in Canada buddy:)

Well i feel weeker team is made to play against strong team not for humilation but for learning.. They have been sent to world cup and are entitlled as week team itself suggest tht they must have played with more weeker team in their country.. so there is no use of week verses week.. as there is little learining since both themselves are learning, Its better to make them challenge stronger team..where they can learn from there mistakes..
