Sunday, November 13, 2005

Getting to blog something after quite sometime. Lot of happenings all around, since the last post. A water-logged Chennai, Indian cricket's astounding re-awakening, and all those blasts all around the globe... Chennai's stagnant rain water in and around the houses seems to be drying up, though a bit slowwwwwwwly... We had asked for rains and we got more than what we could handle! Before the recently concluded ODI cricket series began, Arjuna Ranatunga had commented that the Indian Board must have had their reasons for spreading the game in the hinterland but it does not do justice to the status of the number two team in the world.
Well, SriLanka is no more No2! Now, SouthAfrica is No2 and they are coming... Dravid wants to maintain the standards :) Hope so...

Rain rain...will you come to Chennai again?

Its raining all over India. Somebody remarked that if its raining in many places, and if its raining 'cats and dogs' in some places then its raining 'wild cats and bulldogs in Mumbai'. Thats the story about the current Indian climate. Well, India is a land of diversity, and to maintain that, Chennai (and the rest of Tamil Nadu) sweats! Lord Indira, the rain god seems to have forgotten these areas(its been like that for some time now...). May be he is inspired by google products and the host of open source stuff. He seems to make beta releases of rains in Chennai. One suddenly gets to see dark crowds hovering over the Chennaite's hot head (no puns intended) and it even starts to drizzle. And there it ends. A message pops up on the sky after a few minutes saying "The trial period ends now. thanks for serving as a testing ground for our new sprinkler system.". Unofficial news from the state's education board is that the kinder-garden schools across the states have been told not to teach the rhyme "Rain rain go away....". Hope it helps!!

All Stars * * *

People either want to be stars or want to admire stars. In India, film actors and cricketers are the big crowd-pullers. (Not neccessarily in that order). The Aussies are trying to get back into their slam-bang form by forgetting the ghosts of the past and hoping to live up to the hype they created charging towards yet another Ashes victory, but Indians are more interested in what the big man Chappel will do to their (once-again)sleeping great heroes. What will happen to the banned Saurav and dull Sachin?
Also, once in a while, we do forward mails about how certain 'wonderful' event is going to happen in the skies that night. Tonight, three of the four visible planets can be viewed in close proximity to each other i.e., from our perspective. Or so the mail says.... Today also marks the transition of planet Saturn across the astral charts of Indian astrology. Blame it on the polluted sky and the (not to be blamed, but welcomed) rain-cloud strewn sky, none of the celestial objects are visible!

Hello World

What better place to realise the effects of procrastination than when trying to create a mail id or as I have just experienced, to create a spot in blog-world. I have just spent more than 30 mins to create my account. So many people seem to have already thought about and have already used the usernames that I comeup with!
So here I am finally......
