Praying for rain

Ganguly will be the only person praying for more rain in Chennai not because he didn’t want to face pace bowling under damp conditions, if the match is abandoned then he will be getting two more chances to prove himself. ;)

First flight

Recently I had flown from Pune-Bangalore-Pune in a span of 5 days. This was my first flight experience. It was made possible by Spicejet. The cost was quite affordable. Even though two way charge was around RS.5100, I would have saved more than RS.1500 if I had booked a day before. My friends were threatening me about the flight company, since it is a new company and it cannot afford to fly at this rate, it can close at any time. Thanks to my faith, my first flight experience was without any trouble.

Here few moments in the flight were worth sharing. First the takeoff and the other one is of flying over the quiet and pleasant white clouds, which were simply awesome. I have planned to come by spicejet next time too. I decided to take few snaps of these clouds next time. The onboard crew staff were pleasant (looking). Till that time I have seen them only in films and in TV. They gave us cookies and 200ml water bottle which is acceptable considering the ticket price.

I think they would have a decent salary. I just wonder the cost structure of this newcomers in the aviation industry and how they are going to survive in this business. The flight which I travelled was 200 seater Boeing 737-800. The capacity of the flight is 192( 32 * 6) passengers. I felt like travelling in volvo bus. It was so close and short seating capacity, but still comfortable. Anyway we can't deny one thing , only because of them people like me can fly. Otherwise I have to wait till my company will sponsor.

Vishwa Bharat or Akhand Bharat

Some years ago, when i felt so patriotic (even still i feel), i was thinking of an idea of uniting countries which parted their way at some time before and after our country's independence. It also included countries which i felt were should be part of India, since because they were having similarities with our culture. The list goes like this, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Srilanka, etc., This might have similarities with RSS's akhand bharat concept. But the similarties ends there. Theirs is using military power to acquire the land, i suppose. Mine is to have free trade between these countries, common military, common currency, common law, free movement of people. One fine article i found which seems to be new idea. Though it seems to have lots of pros, one con which i found is it could lead to situations which happened in Fiji. When comes to problems like "Who is the original native of the land?", it doesn't have any answers. For the aritcle which i am talking, click this link.

Mumbai Express - Cinematography

The reason behind bad cinematography is, it was done experimentally with digital movie camera. Kamal being an experimental one, tried digital version in this movie. I don't know whether he has expected this kind of result, only kamal can tell. It is the second film that was shot entirely in digital in India. The first being the other tamil film by ace cinematographer P.C.Sriram.

Good joke #1

One day a man claims himself to a scientist in on his research. He took a cockroach and cut one of its legs and said jump. The cockroach hopped. He removed it's second and said jump.. The cockraoch hopped . Removed it's third leg and said jump. It hopped lightly. He removed all it's leg and said jump.. The cockroach couldn't jump..

Concluded his thesis.. Cockroach donot hear when it looses all its legs.

Herbert Dow, the Monopoly Breaker

A story about a small chemical company owner, Herbert Dow, whose intelligent marketing broke the German monopoly.

Nice time for a change

Gangulty was banned for 6 ODI. This is a nice time to think about the idea of having two captains. One for ODI(Dravid) and one for Test matches(Ganguly). This virtually rules out Ganguly playing ODIs. He then have to prove his worth to come into ODI side.This helps the team to groom other youngsters for the world cup.

I am not against Ganguly, he is a agressive player. He feels the pinch now and naturally he will come into the side in a more agressive manner. Thats what i am waiting for.
