Very interesting Video on ancient Indian inventions. Some of the things did surprise me which existed in India.

I was aware of the number system and Zero. But it was amazing to see how old cities were build, plastic surgery and even cataract operations.


Just to lighten up the mood after India’s loss in World Cup, lets try some comedy. I came across this Stand up comedy clip which is so funny and still so true.

“Somebody is going to get hurt real bad.”

I had a similar interaction with a Chinese guy in local mall when I took my jacket to his store to get it dry cleaned but I was able to negotiate a deal with him. But still funny.

Men in blue will have a crack at this world cup tomorrow with their game against Bangladesh. I would consider Bangladesh to be the best side among the minnows of this World Cup and they have already surprise New Zealand in the warm game and that is a good reminder for India. But this game for India should be pretty straight forward. I mean I am expecting a very professional outing from Indian side.

Siddhartha Vaidhyanathan offers the five reasons why beating Bangladesh may not be easy.  I am glad Siddhartha is not with Indian team  to form any strategic because most of the point are baseless and just stupid in terms of cricket. But who am I judge Siddhartha. He has right for his opinion but it is very one dimensional. Since I put that to rest. Now if India has to worry about Bangladesh then we can’t call them as one of the Team to be in the final four of World Cup as most analyst think of this team.

Team selection, I think Uthappa has done good but for this game I think Indian team will go with Sehwag, in order to get him going and it is important he spend some quality time in the middle. So I think Uthappa will miss the game as Team management may go with Virendra Sehway and Irfan Pathan. As both have a very important role in the success of this team and will determine how far this team will go this World Cup. There could be similar team selections conundrum for the spinners spot. Both Kumble and Harbhajan are good, but only one spot in Team. But I feel Bhajji will get the nod ahead of Kumble.

Rest of the 8 players in the team will be Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Rahul Dravid, M. S. Dhoni, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan and Munaf Patel

I think it should be good game for India and sure Men In Blue won’t let Indian fan down. They need to have a very good outing and should not be complacent.

BEST OF LUCK to Men in Blue.

This was my all time favourite on doordarshan. Song was huge during it’s day. I am glad I was able to dig it out on youtube.

What did you think about this song?

“Flexible Love”

Look at this video which Kash emailed me. This is crazy innovation.
