And so "TEAM" INDIA lose again !!!

So India lost another match,here's nothing new.Today the aussies beat the crap outta IND,as if you were expecting a miracle.You win some you lose many,that's alright but what irritated me in today's match was the way our so called "team" approached the match.Here are few things that i found wrong with the team in general these days ::

  • Shewag:: How many more chances are we gonna give to this fat,bald,lethargic, halwai.I can't seem to remember the last time he scored a century and as far as the stats go;its been 1.5 yrs since his last 100.He made last 100 in jun'05 as reported by CNN-IBN.He needs to be dropped and i am using the word dropped not rested.because i feel he should be shown his place,he is too over-confident that he is bigger than the team and that he can get away placing some absolutely mindless shots in the name of being "aggressive" opener.
  • Raina:: Anyone whose reading this blog please tell me why is Mr.Raina in our team?
  • Fielding(or rather the lack of it) :: In toady's match whenever i saw the ball go for 4 runs i couldn't spot a fielder who was behind the ball chasing it.I mean they don't try these days, or they try to stop the ball by means of their shoes !!! cmon' shoes !!! they never dive at the boundary and when they dive in the mid-field the ball has already gone past them like bhajji did today.
  • Running between the wickets :: Our team is so satisfied in taking 1's they don't ever bother to take the extra run that would put pressure on the opponents.Esp. dravid,shewag they never run fast.
  • Team selection ::Politics, that's all i can see in this team selection.obviously there is no presence of common sense while selecting a side.I don't know why can't they bring kumblelaxman.They give lame excuses like they are old and tired.Hell with those excuses.Kumble can still take way more wickets than bajji ever does.(he takes max 2 a game that too rarely).

I can go on and on ...but i won't because i am tired and i know that it won't make a fucking difference.The thing is all this media hype,the moolah they get once they score a century or take 5 wickets in an innings that they feel they are the next tendulkar or next warne.
Just give the new one's some time to grow and mature before you go on make them as next cricketing gods or else they will lie in their own misconception like shewag is on one right now.

All said and done I'll still cheer for India in the next match they play and criticize them if they lose shamelessly again,if you wanna lose at least lose with a fighting spirit.

"WTF-was-that " kinda movies

Here are some movies,which i have seen and after movie ended i had just one thought in my mind:"WTF was that all about ?? . Well in case you are wondering that they turned out to be absolutely worthless;i am sorry to say my friend that you are sadly mistaken.In fact those are exactly the kind of movie you wish to see again and again and keep pondering over it or over its open-ending interpretation.so here are some that i have seen :

Few Movies I Loved

Here are a list of movies i have watched and re-watched over and over again.These are some of the movies i would recommend to anyone who has a good sense of humor or has a knack for watching good "different" movies(other than usual shit on US/UK Top 10) or would just like to try out new movies(not necessarily in that order).The foll. movies are in general funny,black comedy,"great-one-liners" type movies. ::
The above movies are in no particular order,i like them all the same.(ok maybe some even more so).

PS:In case you have seen any of the above movie,and you liked it do care to share your views and if you feel otherwise ,LIC.

Few Individuals I Look Upto

    1. Maynard James Keenan : :
      He is the lead vocalist,writer and the soul of My Favourite band in this whole wide world which is tOO| and also of another band called A Perfect Circle.
      I can't describe the way i feel after listening to both these bands.tOO| is by far a band which is way way ahead of its peers.It's in a complete diff. league altogether.The lyrics of their songs are so beautifully written.They cover all spheres of life ranging from being angry or about a disillusioned fan or spiritual or about his mother or be it anything.And same goes for the other band APC.U don't just listen to tOO| you feel THE experience.
    2. Amitabh Bachchan : :
      Big B.The name says it all.period.
    3. Larry Page and Sergey Brin : :
      yep, these two college grad who brought the G revolution over the Internet.Almost 500000 queries
      per day at their site.Me and almost the entire planet earth use their sites daily for even the most trivial matters.They are unconventional,original,refreshing,fast and bloody billionaires by the time they had hit 30.I salute you both.
    4. Jeffrey Lieber, J. J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof : :
      These three are the creators of a TV.show called LOST(If u haven't heard the name of this show then u probably are living in some ancient civilization).
      This show is beyond words ,i mean i can't explain how great this show is.You have to watch it to know what i mean and all the credit goes to these three cruel bastards who keep on screwing up with our minds every time an episode ends.They keep on feeding us 1 or 2 ans. and coming up with 10 new questions.But then again that's the U.S.P of the show.You just gotta watch this show A.S.A.P.
    5. Robert De niro ::
      One of My most favourite actor.He has acted in memorable roles in The Godfather Pt.II ,Taxi Driver,Raging Bull,Mean Streets,The Deer Hunter,Once Upon a Time in America et all.He is such a brilliant actor. It's just because of him i like The Godfather Pt.II more than its predecessor.If you get time please check out his above mentioned movies ,if u can't find them then feel free to contact me.



      So i guess these are some of the individuals who have affected my life in one or the another or just have made a mark on my personality.in case you thought i might add Gandhi,Nehru,mother Teressa, et all. you were sadly mistaken.
